What is your Elementary Child Learning in school?

Statement by David Parker (April 27, 2005):

“I, David Parker, am the father of a kindergarten student at Estabrook Elementary School in Lexington, Massachusetts. Since the beginning of this school year, my wife and I have learned that school materials and discussions about gay-headed households/same-sex union issues have been exposed to the children. There are definitive plans to increase the teacher/staff/adult mediated discussions of these subjects.

“We have officially stated on many occasions—to the Lexington school administration—a request that we be notified when these discussions are planned, and want our 6-year-old opted out of such situations when arising “spontaneously”.

“Our parental requests for our own child were flat-out denied with no effort at accommodation. In our meeting on April 27, I, insisted that such accommodation be made and refused to leave the meeting room. I was informed that I would be arrested.”


Garunteed this is not the first time this has happened, I have read about this several times over the last 8-9 years.

Hope

In General Conference today Dieter H. Uchtdorf talked of hope. The hope that carries us through the difficult times. I admire and love Elder Uchtdorf, he truly understands suffering and overcoming it. He has insights into the human experience few have. So I am looking forward with hope, as Uchtdorf would recommend.

It is said that the lost baby will be restored to its mother for her to raise in the millennial reign. This is my heaven. In my heaven I have a quiet little house of comfort where I sit and rock my three or four restored babies, where I enjoy again the joys of being mother to an infant. This is my heaven... And this is what I will look forward to in hope. It is said we can not fathom the peace that awaits us in the life to come. To me this peace is my babies restored to me, my motherhood restored to me, in a peaceful home of comfort. I would have no need of asking for more.

That part of me was not taken from me when I miscarried, it was only delayed, and held out for another time, when the Lord can restore it to me. For this I look forward in hope.

America is not...

America is not the land of the free and the home of the brave. We did not act bravely when we sat back and let our House of Representatives and Senate vote for the bailout. It only starts at $700 Billion, they now have a free ticket to give out as much as they want. This bailout will not help us. It will help a few select big bank owners, and foreign investors. We need a new slogan like, dump your junk investments on us, we don't care, indebt us for life, we don't care.

The TRUTH About The Bailout

Watch this Video

You have heard that its all "American Gambles"

You have been told repeatedly by George Bush and Henry Paulson that this bill is about a "rescue" of Main Street, not Wall Street.

You have been lied to repeatedly.

The bill The Senate intends to try to ramrod down your throat is neither about Main Street or really even about Wall Street.

You are going to get VERY angry. Sit down before you read further.

""Hundreds of billions of dollars are going to bail out FOREIGN INVESTORS. They know it, they demanded it, and the bill has been carefully written to make sure that can happen." - Brad Sherman , D-California"

That's right folks. You are going to have $700 billion - about 25% of the total federal budget - put on your personal credit card (via taxes forever) in order to bail out foreign investors.
Oh, and the best part of it is that the underlying assets involved do not even have to be in the United States!

Here is the definition of a "troubled asset", right from the bill:

"(9) TROUBLED ASSETS.—The term ‘‘troubled assets’’ means— (A) residential or commercial mortgages and any securities, obligations, or other instruments that are based on or related to such mortgages, that in each case was originated or issued on or before March 14, 2008, the purchase of which the Secretary determines promotes financial market stability;

and (B) any other financial instrument that the Secretary, after consultation with the Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, determines the purchase of which is necessary to promote financial market stability, but only upon transmittal of such determination, in writing, to the appropriate committees of Congress."

Notice that conspicuously missing from the definition is the requirement that the asset's underlying thing (that is, the property that was mortgaged, etc) lies within the United States. Also note that Treasury must tell Congress if they add "new types" of debt, but that Congress has no right of review or censure.

That is, it is perfectly legitimate under the bill for a foreign bank to sell or swap any "crap sandwich" it may hold (irrespective of how or where it originated, so long as a mortgage is the basis for it somewhere) with a bank domiciled in the United States, and said bank may then "PUT" it into the TARP.

Note also that Representative Sherman said on Kudlow last night that when this was raised with Secretary Paulson he was told that if Congress tried to restrict the ability of the Secretary to purchase assets "laundered" in this fashion from foreigners, that the bill would be vetoed.
Here 'ya go folks.

You better make this viral and spread it to everyone you know.

Right here, right now.
You better get on the phone to your Congressfolk at http://www.house.gov/ and http://www.senate.gov/ and make clear that you will not stand for this bill being passed.

IF THIS BILL PASSES YOU WILL WIND UP EATING $700 BILLION OR MORE - REMEMBER, THIS IS A REVOLVING CREDIT LINE, NOT A MAXIMUM AMOUNT - OF FOREIGN BAD DEBT FROM THE CHINESE AND ELSEWHERE.

THAT'S RIGHT - THE PURPOSE OF THIS BILL IS TO SCREW YOU, THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER, BY OFFLOADING ALL OF THE TROUBLED DEBT AROUND THE WORLD ONTO YOUR HEADS!

ARE YOU GOING TO LET CONGRESS GET AWAY WITH THIS?
YOU HAVE LESS THAN 48 HOURS TO STOP IT.

NOW YOU KNOW WHY IT WAS SUCH A "RUSH JOB" - THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WERE BEING CONNED OUTRIGHT BY BOTH PAULSON AND BUSH.

PERIOD.
