Great review by Thom Hartmann: http://www.buzzflash.com/hartmann/06/02/har06002.html
When I get done with it, I'm gonna go straight to the source and read this HUGE book called...you guessed it...THE LIFE AND MAJOR WRITINGS OF THOMAS PAINE! (Compiled by Philip S. Foner, however, I'm sure there's only 948 zillion different compilations of Paine's work, so look around!)
I HEAR BY COMMAND YOU TO READ IT OR ELSE!!!
NOW MORE THAN EVER AMERICANS, WE MUST RECONNECT WITH THE ORIGINAL *LIBERAL* VIEW OF AMERICA'S FOUNDATION AS LAID OUT BY PAINE (who as far as I'm concerned, WAS goddamn bloody well THE REAL founder of this country!) AND WHAT ITS FUTURE MUST BE, OR ELSE WE ARE FUCKED!

South Florida radio icon Neil Rogers signing off
Rogers, for most of the past 33 years the most popular talk host in the market, has reached an agreement that removes his 10 a.m.-2 p.m. program from WQAM (AM 560) immediately. It will be replaced by a sports program.
- By Tom Jicha |South Florida Sun-Sentinel
- 7:49 PM EDT, June 22, 2009
FORT LAUDERDALE - The Neil Rogers era in South Florida radio is over.
Rogers, for most of the past 33 years the most popular talk host in the market, has reached an agreement that removes his 10 a.m.-2 p.m. program from WQAM (AM 560) immediately. It will be replaced by a sports program.
Reached at his Toronto home, where the show has originated in recent years, Rogers answered the phone with, "Can't talk at all, under penalty of death."
Rogers' attorney, Norman Kent, is quoted in a WQAM announcement saying, "Mr. Rogers has no intention of seeking other on-air work at this time and has directed me not to seek any such employment, though under our agreement with WQAM, this is not prohibited."
In an interview Kent said the statement was worked out between him and the station, "So there's really nothing more to add."
Rogers, 66, worked at WKAT, WNWS, WINZ, Zeta 4 and WIOD before joining WQAM in 1997. He said he isn't going to work in radio again.
"This is it," Rogers said. "The guy who [regularly] called up and said, 'Retire!' is finally getting his way."
Asked if he would miss doing a daily show, Rogers said emphatically, "No .ƒ|.ƒ|. like hemorrhoids."
Rogers had a five-year contract that runs through 2013, which set his salary in the range of $750,000-$800,000 annually.
The WQAM announcement said Rogers would serve as a consultant. Given the animosity between the two parties, this might be a bookkeeping device to justify whatever financial agreement was reached.
Bad blood had been simmering. In May, WQAM fired Rogers' longtime producer, Jorge Rodriguez. On May 18, Rogers, weary of listener comments about Rodriguez, blurted out a profanity aimed at station management. Rogers said he immediately reached for the button that allows seven seconds to delete anything before it gets on the air. However, the button was not working and the expletive aired. Rogers was suspended for three days with pay.
Rogers also said the station was pressing him to give up his relaxed summer schedule, which required him to work only two days a week. Rogers was adamant he wouldn't do this.
Rogers often complained that Beasley lawyers had ordered him to strip his program of bawdy material, which, he said, took away his show. Monday, it was taken away in total.
Tom Jicha can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to Joe Bell, VP and Market Manager for Beasley's Miami Radio cluster, a Sports/Talk show will launch immediately from 10am to 2pm, whereas Rogers' program was all Talk.
Rogers' agent and attorney Norm Kent said, "Mr. Rogers has no intention of seeking other on-air work at this time, and has directed me not to seek any such employment, though under our agreement with WQAM, this is not prohibited."
Bell added, "Neil Rogers was a ratings leader in Miami for years and we're happy that we could reach a new accord that works well for both parties." (06-22-09)

A joke too bad to print?
HOW SEN. JOHN McCAIN'S TASTELESS TWO-LINER ABOUT CHELSEA CLINTON AND JANET RENO WAS CENSORED OUT OF THE NATION'S LEADING NEWSPAPERS.
- - - - - - - - - - - -
BY DAVID CORN
During the last few months, many established media outlets have decided to report innuendo and rumor about the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, as long as they have a source they can cite (at least anonymously), or another media player has reported the same.
But this new standard in the practice of journalism seemingly does not extend to other political figures, at least not media darlings like Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. Earlier this month, at a Republican Senate fund-raiser, McCain told a downright nasty joke making fun of Janet Reno, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton.
The fact that McCain had made the tasteless joke was reported in major newspapers, as was the vain attempt by his press secretary to initially deny what McCain had done. But in several major newspapers, the joke itself was kept a secret. When McCain subsequently apologized to President Clinton, the Washington Post, in its personality section, noted the apology but said the joke "was too vicious to print."
The Los Angeles Times, in its Life & Style section, provided an oblique rendering of the joke that did not fully convey its ugliness. When Maureen Dowd penned a column in the New York Times about the joke, she wrote that McCain "is so revered by the press that his disgusting jape was largely nudged under the rug." But Dowd chose not to relay the joke, either.
The joke did appear in McCain's hometown paper, the Arizona Republic, and the Associated Press did report the joke in full, so everyone in the press had access to McCain's words. But by censoring themselves, the Post, the Times and others helped McCain deflect flak and preserved his status as a Republican presidential contender.
Salon feels its readers deserve the unadulterated truth. Though no tape of McCain's quip has yet emerged, this is what he reportedly said:
"Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?
Because her father is Janet Reno."
The joke may be crude, but it pales in comparison with the published details surrounding the presidential sex scandal. McCain's two-liner conveys some interesting insights into what he considers humorous (lesbianism, a young woman's physical appearance), particularly since it was delivered to a Republican crowd. Remember, this is the party that champions pro-family values.
McCain's lapse in judgment -- admittedly, not as big a lapse as having a sexual relationship with an intern -- may be a significant clue into aspects of his "character," and thus relevant to the voting public. But many voters have been spared this insight, thanks to the censors in the press.
Accordingly, McCain is well-positioned to ride out this messy little episode. Ever since he started championing the anti-tobacco bill (which was torpedoed by his GOP comrades), McCain has been the White House's pet Republican on the Hill. Consequently, the White House played down his Chelsea remarks. McCain is also unusually popular with the media. He gives good quotes; he is outspoken. He takes positions that contradict the Republican leadership. When you talk to McCain, he converses in the manner of a real person, seemingly telling you what he thinks. That is rare among elected officials. Ask him a question and he does not shift into automatic-politician mode, as do most members of Congress.
The former Vietnam POW should escape this matter without serious political harm. In the inevitable magazine profiles of McCain that will be written, there will no doubt be the perfunctory line: "McCain's tendency to speak too freely was proven when he made a distasteful joke at a fund-raiser about the first family and then had to apologize to the president."
But the joke revealed more than a mean streak in a man who would be president. It also exposed how the Washington Post, New York Times and Los Angeles Times play favorites when reporting the foibles of our leading politicians.

STANDING OVATION! What I've been saying FOR YEARS, just that only recently are people finally getting the idea through their heads especially now that we've had ANOTHER doctor MURDERED. Thou Shalt Not Kill...gee, where's the ASTERISK: EXCEPT THEM "BABY KILLERS"? Now that's something, there's ONLY 2 other clinics IN THE FUCKING ENTIRE USA that does later term abortions. TWO. Not TWO HUNDRED, not TWO THOUSAND...just goddamn TWO. And that's STILL too many for these asshole choice-haters. And it's as if late term abortions are don't just for the fun of it, like for birth control. WRONG KKKons. If you're so goddamn pro-life, why don't you give a shit about the mother's life, cocksuckers?!?!? Oh I forgot, being good little xians, women are INFERIOR to men...jackasses.
Well, all KKKons who fuck with Planned Parenthood, clinics, etc., YOU ARE ON NOTICE.
What's coming through loud and clear here is this:
They. Won't. Stop. Ever.
It just might be time to make them.
I know, I know....we can't be like them! That would be bad!
I'm getting my inspiration here from a program I watched on the History International Channel. Turns out that after the Civil War, the South didn't just quietly go off, accept their defeat, lick their wounds and cry into their mint juleps over their "lost honor and civilization."
Nope, a lot of them kept on killing US soldiers and blacks even after Lee's surrender. They even organized into terrorist groups to keep them nigras in line and not voting (something Southern blacks had the right to do after the Civil War and the ratification of the 14th Amendment) - they even had a kewl name for it, the Ku Klux Klan. Historians refer to this period of American history as the Second Civil War. I'd heard of the Klan, but this Second Civil War thing was news to me.
Oh, and this "terrorism doesn't work" bit? Well, it sure did then and even now - blacks stayed away from the polls in droves back then and so did the "yankees." Now, the family of the murdered doctor just announced that his clinic will not be re-opening. That leaves only two clinics in the entire country that are available if late term abortions are necessary.
Let me repeat that: That's TWO clinics for the whole United States of America.
What struck me most about the program was what worked as the best and most effective way it was responded to. People who wanted to talk and reason ended up dead. Blacks who tried to peacefully exercise their voting rights - dead. Oddly enough, when there were people who were just as willing to make the terrorizers as dead as their victims, only then did the killing stop.
Hmm, are we missing a lesson from history here? Might be!
If you really want the extremist anti-abortion terrorists to quit, start using their tactics against them. Picket their churches. Picket them at their homes. Show up at their rallies with pictures of dead Iraqi kids - most of the anti-abortion nuts think that's just peachy. Shout down their speakers. Disrupt their meetings. Show them there's a price for calling for murder and terrorism.
Peacefully, of course. God forbid that I should suggest that when they take down one of ours, take two of theirs. Got bullseye, Randall Terry? No, I wouldn't do that - that would be bad.
But they would deserve it.

A Scotsman walking through a field, sees a man drinking water from a pool with his hand.
The Scotsman man shouts ' Awa ye feel hoor thatâs full Oâ coos Sharn'
(Don't drink the water, it's full of cow shit.)
The man shouts back 'I'm English, Speak English, I don't understand you'.
The Scotsman man shouts back 'Use both hands, you'll get more in.'
A Scots boy came home from school and told his mother he had been given a part in the school play. "Wonderful," says the mother, "What part is it?" The boy says "I play the part of the Scottish husband!" The mother scowls and says: "Go back and tell your teacher you want a speaking part."
A Scotsman once attended a Temperance lecture given by Scotland's top medical man, a noted anti-drink campaigner. The speaker began by placing a live, wriggling worm in a glass of whiskey. After a moment or two it died and sank to the bottom.
The speaker said quietly to the audience, "Now my friends, what does this tell us?"
Scotman piped up, "If you drink whiskey you'll not be bothered by worms!"
A Guy is driving his girlfriend home when she decides she wants to go to her friends instead. Her friend lives out of the way so she tells her boyfriend that she would get naked for him if he drove her. The guy says ok and the girl takes off all her clothes. The boyfriend is so busy looking at her that he stacks the car and gets stuck between the steering wheel and the seat. He tells her to go get help and she replied that she couldn't because she didn't have any clothes on. He replies, Take my shoe and cover your snatch with it, and go for help! She takes the shoe and runs to the closest gas station. She finds the clerk and says, "Help, my boyfriend is stuck! Can you help us?" The clerk replies, "I'm sorry, I think he's too far in."
A guy walks into a sperm donor bank wearing a ski mask and holding a gun. He goes up to the nurse and demands her to open the sperm bank vault. She says "But sir, its just a sperm bank!", "I don't care, open it now!!!" he replies. So she opens the door to the vault and inside are all the sperm samples. The guy says "Take one of those sperm samples and drink it!", she looks at him "BUT, they are sperm samples???" , "DO IT!". So the nurse sucks it back. "That one there, drink that one as well.", so the nurse drinks that one as well. Finally after 4 samples the man takes off his ski mask and says, "See honey - its not that hard!!!"
last night during the show in camden nj, i had a moment that is the type of inner experience of performance that no one sees, but that is interesting to me internally. we were playing the song "then she did". one of my favorites, entirely created by perry. we began playing it and i closed my eyes. i often close my eyes to help focus more singly on what is happening in my ears. so i had closed my eyes at the beginning of the song and when i opened them again i had been engulfed entirely by smoke, dry ice. so much so that i could see nothing but the swirling clouds of smoke with one small single bright light in the distance. it turned out that the light was a light out at the soundboard in the middle of the audience. didnt know this at the time. so im cloaked in my cloud of smoke with my distant point of light and i thought that it sort of poetically represented my death. "then she did" is a song of death and it all seemed very comfortable conceptually. i could feel that the light was patient and id eventually get there, but that tonight i was a good distance from it, that all that really existed for me was my time here and, in particular, my extraordinary spot in the spectrum of human experience. namely, being on stage for the ritual of performance in front of thousands of people. this is the sort of internal experience i seek out to enrich my experience of performance, and thereby keep it interesting to me and by extension hopefully to you all.
God love E.A man, great to know he's feeling it again. Very tasteful with tact! Cat gives credit to his peers and gives you such an interesting reflection on how his life and his art interact and shares it with us. Bravo!

Wow...Bill, you truly are a shit-eating rat-fucker. WHY DO YOU HATE AMERICA? WHY DO YOU WANT THE TERRORIST TO WIN?!
BillO's PATRIOT shirts made in Central America.
BY TULA CONNELL
Fri Jun 05, 2009 at 06:41:57 AM PDT
We heard Bill O'Reilly is having trouble finding American-made T-shirts to sell in his Patriot Store. We know he's heartbroken because, after all, what good is a Patriot Store if its products are made in El Salvador or Haiti? (Especially if you're selling red, white and blue "American Patriot" T-shirts, like the one on the left.)
We heard he can't find made-in-the-USA T-shirts because O'Reilly said so himself (h/t to D-Day). In his "Mailbag" segment on May 22, O'Reilly took the following question from Stewart Hollins in Rio Rancho, N.M.:
Mr. O, great looking mugs. Terrific bold and fresh shirts. Where are the items made?
And O' Reilly responded:
Mugs are made in the USA, Stewart. The shirts in Central America. We cannot get the volume of shirts we need made in America, sadly.
Actually, Bill, you can. And not only American-made, but union made. And there's nothing more patriotic than buying the products made by the heart of America's working middle class.
A spokeswoman from Image Pointe, based in Waterloo, Iowa, says the company has 40,000 T-shirts on hand, and another 200,000 easily accessible from their vendor. That's on hand, instant delivery. After that, the company can churn out 10,000 T-shirts a day. The shirts are made in places like Chicago, Pennsylvania, the Carolinas and San Francisco. That is, made in the USA. And all made by union members.
Not enough T-shirts there for you, Bill?
You can always supplement orders with K& R Industries in Chantilly, Va., where a spokeswoman says the company could provide any amount of American-made, union-made T-shirts needed. Just give them a heads up.
In the off-chance Bill O doesn't read blogs, how about sending him a message and telling him his Patriot Store should carry American-made products? If he's a real patriot, he'll be happy you asked.
This is a crosspost from Firedoglake.com.
Ok ok! I know you fuckers are like SHUT THE HE77 UP LU! WE GET IT! YOU LOVE THIS ALBUM, OK!!!!
Butt really, if you haven't heard "YEAR ZERO" by NINE INCH NAILS, I swear on a stack of huge stack of BIBLES (by Anton LaVey, accept NO substitute!) this CD is in my TOP 20, BEST EVER. You heard me...and locked in. It RIP, SHREDS, TEARS DOWN...the BU$Hi1ler Nazi Scum. And in such a way, I have not seen since, or before, on a scale that to me, rocks me to my core. It is Trent's "Abbey Road" or "A Night At The Opera" (I consider Queen 1, 2, Sheer Heart Attack & The Works BETTER, but you know what I mean!) or "Physical Graffiti" ; It simply is off damn charts!!! It takes you from every valley of life, every hole you've ever been in, then to the top of every mountain, in 100 times less than the time it took you to read this crap! Imagine the most kick ass roller-coaster ride you've had...then multiply it by A) GREAT MUSIC, B) A THOUSAND TIMES FASTER! So com'on! PUT YOUR DAMN HAND IN THE FIRE OF LIFE! You can't be the boy in the bubble, alright?!
Also, I find it interesting that when I saw the NIN/JA show in West Palm @ the ol' Coral Sky (or whatever corporate sponsor name it has now), NIN played only ONE SONG from this album, and that is "Survivalism". http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&oi=video_result&ct=res&cd=1&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DpUxk5IyGgjQ&ei=v2QrSoqYKcWGtgeq0qCoCA&rct=j&q=nin+youtube+survivalism&usg=AFQjCNGkiySyyh9OC3zW-pXVv6byI5Thyw
Why?! Well, I attribute it to Palm Beach being one of the few LIBERAL areas left in this country. Preach to the choir?! :) And to top it off, it didn't get a huge share of A-HOz!!! Not more than 2 at most, I shit you not! What's going on here kids! On the other hand, how did NIN/JA bring out 19,000 PEOPLE in the DEEPEST PIT of the 2nd Republitard Great ICK! DEEP AS SHIT Depression?! Well, I'll tell you. It's SO simple, even the 3 or 4 honest CONs out there would man-up and agree to: BY BEING THE REAL DEAL.
Punk, goth, industrial, post-punk, new-wave, whatever you wish to call it, ROCK N ROLL seriously NEEDS reinventing every 6 months. Just like THE TREE OF LIBERTY, as so eloquently stated by Thomas Jefferson, needs its 8 year fertilization from "the blood of patriots"!

'Gay penguins' rear adopted chick
Two "gay" male penguins have hatched a chick and are now rearing it as its adoptive parents, says a German zoo.
The zoo, in Bremerhaven, northern Germany, says the adult males - Z and Vielpunkt - were given an egg which was rejected by its biological parents.
It says the couple are now happily rearing the chick, said to have reached four weeks old.
The zoo made headlines in 2005 over plans to "test" the sexual orientation of penguins with homosexual traits.
Three pairs of male penguins had been seen attempting to mate with each other and trying to hatch offspring from stones.
The zoo flew in four females in a bid to get the endangered birds to reproduce - but quickly abandoned the scheme after causing outrage among gay rights activists, who accused it of interfering in the animals' behaviour.
The six "gay" penguins remain at the zoo, among them Z and Vielpunkt who are now rearing the chick together after being given the rejected egg.
"Z and Vielpunkt, both males, gladly accepted their 'Easter gift' and got straight down to raising it," said a zoo statement.
"Since the chick arrived, they have been behaving just as you would expect a heterosexual couple to do. The two happy fathers spend their days attentively protecting, caring for and feeding their adopted offspring."
Humboldt penguins are normally found in coastal Peru and Chile, but their numbers have been dwindling due to overfishing, reports the AFP news agency.
'Drive to mate'
There have been previous reports of exclusive male-to-male pairings among penguins, some of which have also included the rearing of chicks.
Homosexual behaviour is well documented in many different animals, but it is not understood in detail, says Professor Stuart West, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Oxford.
Professor West says it has been suggested that homosexual activity could serve various purposes - for instance, it may relate to social bonding and establishment of dominance among bonobo chimps, while in some bird species, females may come together to rear young.
Other animals may simply exhibit a "drive to mate", while others may, like humans, enjoy non-procreative sexual activity.
"Homosexuality is nothing unusual among animals," Bremerhaven zoo said on Wednesday.
"Sex and coupling up in our world do not necessarily have anything to do with reproduction."

The Way Out
by Richard Distelhorst
Here's a truly progressive proposal to reform the privately-owned,
debt-based monetary system. Two time presidential candidate
Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) will soon be introducing this
legislation which truly is the way out of recession and back to
prosperity. The following article summarizes the legislation and also
provides a link where the proposed American Monetary Act can be read.
THE WAY OUT
The primary cause of a recession is a shortage of money in the hands of
the American people, the way out of recession is to put more money in
their hands. Under the present monetary system this can only be done by
borrowing more and going deeper in debt. It is difficult for people
to understand that we have no money, instead we circulate bank-created
interest-bearing debt as a "substitute money."
The American Monetary Act takes three simple steps to correct this debt
(1) Incorporate the Federal Reserve Banks into the U. S. Treasury where
all new money is created by government as real money, not
interest-bearing debt, and spent into circulation to promote the general
welfare; monitored to be neither inflationary nor deflationary.
(2) Eliminate Fractional Reserve Banking in a manner that makes the
federal government the only entity with the power to create, issue and
regulate our money, as Article I, Section 8, Clause 5 of the United
States Constitution mandates.
(3) As the "debt-money" created by the privately owned Federal Reserve
System and the commercial banks disappears when debts are paid, it will
be replaced with real money spent into circulation to rebuild our badly
decayed public infrastructure, which includes roads, bridges, dams,
water and sewage plants, mass transit, schools, etc. It also includes
universal health care and education for all. This will create
millions of high paying jobs. Also a substantial stimulus check will be
sent out to immediately put money back in the hands of the American
people. We don't need to "get credit flowing," we need to get real
money flowing. All of this will be an interest-free, debt-free,
inflation-free dividend to the American people.
What the so-called "too big to fail" banks don't want you to know is
that all of their money was created in the form of debt, and when they
can no longer create more "debt-money" it will disappear as the debts
are paid or defaulted, which means we will have to replace their debt
money by spending real U. S. dollars into circulation. Then we will
finally get the benefits we should have received in the first place -
and all these benefits come without debt, without taxes, and without
inflation. It will be a permanent money supply, not temporary as the
present bank-created "debt-money" which disappears when debts are paid.
The real money we will need to spend into circulation to replace this
"debt-money" is literally trillions of dollars. And it all will appear
as a bonus or dividend for the people. This will be permanent money
with no debt or interest charges attached.
To allow this recession or depression to continue when the way out is
well known is inexcusable. The American Monetary Act IS the way out of
the present recession.

HERE IS HOW THIS "DEBT-MONEY" CREATION PROCESS WORKS - HOW THE FED AND
THE BANKS CREATE MONEY "OUT OF THIN AIR."
Step 1: The Federal Reserve Bank of New York "buys" assets, normally
government securities for sale on the open market, by creating the
"money" to buy them out of thin air, and, in the process, the big banks
are given, free of charge, an equal amount of new, so-called "reserves."
These "reserves" become the basis for a 10 to 33 fold expansion of
"debt-money" which will be loaned into existence by the banking system -
with an interest charge attached. We must all realize that, as
Congressman Kucinich says, "The Federal Reserve is no more Federal than
Federal Express." It is privately owned and controlled by the "too
big to fail" banks.
Step 2: Based on new "reserves" just created out of thin air and given
to the big banks free of charge, the banking system uses the Federal
Reserve's Fractional Reserve System to expand or multiply those
"reserves" by 10 to 33 times. These so-called "reserves" are
sometimes called "high-powered dollars" because of their multiplier
effect. The required reserve on demand deposits is presently 10% for
big banks and 3% for smaller banks. So, for the big banks, if they
received, for example, one million of new "reserves" just created out of
nothing by the Fed, they can create out of nothing, and loan out at
interest, ten times that amount. If and when any of these new
"reserves" trickle down from the big banks to the small banks, those
banks, with a 3% reserve requirement on demand deposits, can create out
of nothing, and loan out at interest, 33 1/3 times the amount of new
"reserves" just received.
That's the whole process as simply as it can be stated. The end
result is that, using the example of one million of new "reserves", our
people and their government and businesses are deeper in debt, interest
bearing debt, not one million dollars deeper, but someplace between $10
million and $33 million deeper. The more "debt-money" we have, the
deeper in debt we are.
The American Monetary Act eliminates this debt-based system and takes
back the power to create, issue and regulate our money. This
legislation is the way out of recession and back to prosperity.
The banking system presently holds over $7 trillion of deposits.
These are all in the form of interest-bearing "debt-money." When
banks can no longer create money and loan it into circulation with an
interest charge attached, all $7 trillion will disappear as debts are
paid or defaulted. But we need this $7 trillion in our economy, so
the government, under the American Monetary Act, will replace the
"debt-money" as it disappears with real U. S. money spent directly into
circulation as a tax-free, debt-free, interest-free dividend to the
HERE IS WHAT REPLACING $7 TRILLION OF "DEBT-MONEY" WITH REAL U. S. MONEY
OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS CAN MEAN TO YOU AND YOUR COMMUNITY.
While the final decision on how to spend this $7 trillion will be made
by Congress and the President, here are some definite possibilities.
The dividend check and the program to rebuild the infrastructure are
the first two programs suggested by the American Monetary Act.
$825 billion to issue a check for $5,000 to every person on the Social
Security rolls, both those working and paying in, and those retired and
receiving benefits. This is as much as the whole Stimulus Plan passed
by Congress but, instead of borrowing the money, it is spent into
circulation as a dividend to the American people. $5,000 in the hands
of all American workers will go a long way towards ending the current
$300 billion to rebuild and improve the public infrastructure - schools,
bridges, roads and streets, water and sewage plants, mass transit, etc.
This will be $300 billion a year for at least eight consecutive years.
This money is spent, not borrowed, into circulation in replacement of
the old bank created "debt-money." Direct grants will be given on a
per capita basis in all 435 Congressional Districts. Here's what this
would mean in a city with a population of 27,000, a county with a
population of 40,000 and a school district with an enrollment of 4,100.
THE COUNTY: $7.4 million - an 8 year total of $59.2 million.
THE CITY: $13.5 million - an 8 year total of $ 108.0 million
THE SCHOOL DISTRICT: $8.2 million - an 8 year total of $65.6 million
That adds up to a combined $29.1 million a year - an 8 year total of
THESE ARE DIRECT GRANTS, NOT LOANS. Think how much the public
infrastructure and the economy of that city and county will improve with
these funds available.
You can figure how much your city and county would receive each year.
The formula used to distribute the $300 billion a year is: Your
City or town will receive its population times $505 per person. Your
County will receive its population times $175 per person. Your
Schools will receive $2,000 per student enrolled. And your State will
receive its population times $90 per person.
This program will put millions of people to work at high paying
construction and manufacturing jobs. Just the dividend check and this
program together will end the present recession and return us to
$300 billion to provide full employment for all at a living wage. The
government would become the employer of last resort. The living wage
would be $10.00 per hour plus health care benefits. This program
would be similar to the WPA (Works Progress Administration) and the CCC
(Civilian Conservation Corps) of the 1930s.
$100 billion to Save Social Security as it is and, at the same time,
exempt the first $25,000 of earned income from the 6.2% employee share
of the Social Security tax - resulting in a $1,550 pay raise for
everyone earning $25,000 or more a year. The current "cap" on
earnings subject to the Social Security tax is $102,000 per year. That
cap will be removed and the Social Security tax, like the
Medicare/Medicaid tax, will apply to every dollar earned (after
exempting the first $25,000).
Universal Health Care. We will finally have universal health care
like almost all industrialized countries in the world. We presently
pay 17% of GDP for health care and over 45 million people are not
covered. The other countries cover all of their people and spend 10%
of GDP or less. We're already paying for universal health care, we're
just not getting it. Legislation to do this has already been introduced.
It is the Conyers/Kucinich bill, H. R. 676.
$50 billion to guarantee a college education to all who meet specified
criteria, mainly that their grades indicate that they are serious
students. A well educated population is critical to the future of our
Monetary grants to the states. Each year the Monetary Authority will
instruct the U. S. Treasury to disperse per capita grants evenly over
a 12 month period to the 50 states equal to 10% of the money created
under Title V the preceding year. The states will use these funds in
broadly designated areas of public infrastructure, health care and
paying for unfunded Federal mandates.
Last, but certainly not least, we will pay off the privately held
portion of our National Debt as it comes due. This is simply a matter
of replacing interest-bearing government securities with non-interest
bearing U. S. money. The portion of the current National Debt held by
the government will simply be cancelled. When we create, issue and
regulate our own money we cannot owe money to ourselves. Thus the
entire National Debt will be paid off, saving the interest charges now
paid to the holders of the national debt.
These are the kinds of benefits we can receive when, instead of letting
the privately owned banking system loan our "debt-money" into
circulation as interest bearing debt, we, instead, create, issue and
regulate our own money. In the process we receive the benefits we
would have received in the first place if we had always issued our own
The American Monetary Act is the only way out of this recession and back
to prosperity. The time to pass it is now.
