Fox News Channel host Bill O'Reilly attempted to do so at the top of his April 23 "The O'Reilly Factor" broadcast during his "Talking Points Memo" segment. O'Reilly outlined how Obama has gotten support from the NBC networks both pre-election and post-election.
"Will General Electric get paid for supporting President Obama - that is the subject of this evening's Talking Points Memo," O'Reilly said. "As everybody knows, GE, which owns NBC has been very aggressive in helping Barack Obama - first supporting the president in the election and now attacking his critics."
O'Reilly pointed to the change in tone at CNBC as a specific example. Certain on-air CNBC personalities had been outspoken in criticizing Obama's economic policies. However, that has changed somewhat and according to O'Reilly, CNBC Chicago Mercantile Exchange reporter Rick Santelli - the inspiration for the recent Tax Day tea party protests - had said he had been sent to a "reeducation camp."
"There is also emerging evidence that GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt and NBC News chief Jeff Zucker told CNBC personnel to stop criticizing Obama's economic policies," O'Reilly said. "Now, that would be a major breach of journalistic ethics. In fact, Obama critic Rick Santelli is reported to have said he was sent to a quote, ‘reeducation camp,' by NBC. In addition, the hateful MSNBC network continues to air vicious attacks every day."
O'Reilly played a clip from MSNBC' "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" on April 16, when Janeane Garofalo, in a hateful tirade, called Tax Day tea party protest participants "nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks."
"Well, this week Jeff Immelt met with GE stockholders in Florida and there was near revolt," O'Reilly continued. "That's no surprise, as also this week Forbes magazine labeled Immelt one of the worst-performing CEOs in the country."
O'Reilly also played the exchange between his producer Jesse Watters and Jeffrey Immelt at the April 22 shareholders' meeting, where he questioned the ethics of MSNBC. But, according to O'Reilly there is reason to believe the slant of MSNBC is allowed because GE stands to profit if Obama is successful in instituting his priorities, specifically cap-and-trade.
"Now, most CEOs would have stopped NBC's corruption a long time ago, but Immelt may be looking for a major payoff," O'Reilly said. "According to reporting by the Washington Examiner, GE is heavily lobbying the Obama administration for bailout money. The company is also pushing for the proposed cap-and-trade program. Apparently GE has set up a joint venture it hopes would manage billions of dollars in cap-and-trade transactions should that corporate carbon tax pass Congress."
NBC has been actively promoting green issues and this revelation by O'Reilly happens to fall during the NBC Universal networks "Green is Universal" week.
"Now think about this ladies and gentlemen - a failing corporation, General Electric might reap billions of dollars if the Feds OK the carbon deal," O'Reilly said. "By the way, GE is already getting taxpayer bailout money for its financial unit. So it's not a stretch to assume Immelt would want to help President Obama as much as possible."
According to O'Reilly, the level of corruption is so big, it stands to make Watergate look small.
"This is obviously a major story - when a powerful corporation, which controls a major part of the American media, may be using its power and the airwaves to influence politics, in order to make money from government contracts," O'Reilly said. "That kind of corruption would make Watergate look small. We hope it is not true."
GE owns msnbc.
and a man named george soros (a nazi affiliated mega-billionaire) also has clout in the main stream media business as well as wanting to buy a president...for reasons too long for me to type here..but kinda related globalization.
he almost did with kerry, but the swift-boaters stole it from him.
now msnbc, funded by GE became the media tool..bashing mccain and palin.
GE donated mega-bucks as did soros to the obama campaign.
obama was getting mega money from soros as well as biases media coverage.
and so became president.
GE wants obama to sign into law a carbon tax...
so they can make billions.
one hand washes the other..
it is likely the biggest political scandal ever!
makes watergate look like tiny!
Obama’s hidden bailout of General Electric
By: Timothy P. Carney
03/03/09 8:12 PM While many companies hire lobbyists to win earmarks, General Electric’s unmatched lobbying force has secured a tax increase — or its equivalent — in President Barack Obama’s budget.
Labeled “climate revenues” and totaling $646 billion over eight years, this line item in Obama’s budget has inspired confidence in GE Chief Executive Officer Jeff Immelt. As Immelt put it in a letter this week, he believes that the Obama administration will be a profitable “financier” and “key partner.”
On page 115 of Obama’s fiscal 2010 budget is Table S-2, titled “Effect of Budget Proposals on Projected Deficits.” The chart forecasts the costs of Obama’s spending proposals and the added revenue of his proposed tax increases. It also forecasts, beginning in 2012, billions of dollars a year in “climate revenues.” This budget line, which has struck fear into some lawmakers from coal-dependent states, could spell salvation for GE in these times of uncertainty.
How can Obama generate “climate revenues”? By forcing companies to pay for the right to emit greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide.
A tax on greenhouse gas emissions could accomplish this, but Obama’s preferred policy — and the approach embraced by a few congressional bills in recent years — is called “cap and trade.” In short, cap and trade requires businesses to spend “credits” to pay for their emissions. Businesses can buy or sell these credits, and the market — not the government — would directly set the price of a credit. Government would initially auction them off, generating revenue.
GE — a member of the U.S. Climate Action Partnership, which advocates cap and trade — leads the push for greenhouse gas restrictions.
In the fourth quarter of 2008 as the company’s stock fell 30 percent, GE spent $4.26 million on lobbying — that’s $46,304 each day, including weekends, Thanksgiving and Christmas. In 2008, the company spent a grand total of $18.66 million on lobbying.
Reviewing their lobbying filings, you might think you were looking at Al Gore’s agenda. GE’s specific lobbying issues included the “Climate Stewardship Act,” “Electric Utility Cap and Trade Act,” “Global Warming Reduction Act,” “Federal Government Greenhouse Gas Registry Act,” “Low Carbon Economy Act,” and “Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act.”
This isn’t altruism or public relations. GE has started a joint venture called Greenhouse Gas Services, which invests in — and hopes to manage the trade in — greenhouse gas credits. But these investments and this trading floor are of basically no use and nearly no value without government restrictions on greenhouse gases.
Hence the lobbying, buttressed by generous campaign contributions: Employees and executives gave $1.35 million to politicians in the past election while GE’s political action committee shelled out $1.55 million. About 64 percent of this $2.9 million went to Democrats, with Obama easily the top recipient of GE money.
Obama’s budget includes the payoff, promising to start a multibillion-dollar greenhouse gas industry by 2012. In a letter this week, GE’S Immelt told shareholders that current events present an “opportunity of a lifetime,” because “capitalism will be ‘reset.’ ”
Immelt wrote: “The interaction between government and business will change forever. In a reset economy, the government will be a regulator; and also an industry policy champion, a financier, and a key partner.”
In short, GE plans to get rich by being one of the government’s closest partners — which it has always been, thanks to its unmatched lobbying efforts.
The environmentalist at this point might respond, “Well, good for GE. if they can get rich while helping the planet, more power to them.” But this ignores important issues. First, restraining greenhouse gas emissions will cost Americans dearly. Gas, electricity and heating prices will all go up. The prices of manufactured and shipped goods will go up. A Clemson University report on similar cap-and-trade proposals forecast a 1 percent decline in he U.S. gross domestic product by 2015 if they were implemented.
There are environmental costs, also, to such a focus on greenhouse gases: Ethanol’s damage to water supplies, soil health and air quality are the fruit of government pushing the product as a climate-friendly fuel.
When the lobbying fingerprints of GE and other well-connected firms are considered, it’s not hard to conclude that the policy that will finally emerge won’t be the one that is best for the planet and least bad for the economy, but the one that is best for General Electric
This is why our President wants to go "Green"
who is the largest supplier of Wind Generators and Turbines? "GE"!
Our President ... Owe's them BIG Time, for getting him elected

Secretary Janet Napolitano
Janet Napolitano was sworn in on January 21, 2009 as the third Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Prior to joining the Obama Administration, Napolitano was mid-way through her second term as governor of the state of Arizona. While governor, Napolitano became the first woman to chair the National Governors Association, where she was instrumental in creating the Public Safety Task Force and the Homeland Security Advisors Council. She also chaired the Western Governors Association. Napolitano previously served as the Attorney General of Arizona and the U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona.
Napolitano's homeland security background is extensive. As U.S. Attorney, she helped lead the domestic terrorism investigation into the Oklahoma City Bombing. As Arizona Attorney General, she helped write the law to break up human smuggling rings. As governor, she implemented one of the first state homeland security strategies in the nation, opened the first state counter-terrorism center and spearheaded efforts to transform immigration enforcement. She's also been a pioneer in coordinating federal, state, local and bi-national homeland security efforts, and presided over large scale disaster relief efforts and readiness exercises to ensure well-crafted and functional emergency plans.
NOW Napolitano want All Good God Loving Gun Owning Flag Flying Citizens to be considered Terrorist. Isnt that something!
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday that she was briefed before the release of a controversial intelligence assessment and that she stands by the report, which lists returning veterans among terrorist risks to the U.S.
But the top House Democrat with oversight of the Department of Homeland Security said in a letter to Ms. Napolitano that he was "dumbfounded" that such a report would be issued. "This report appears to raise significant issues involving the privacy and civil liberties of many Americans - including war veterans," said Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, in his letter sent Tuesday night.
The letter was representative of a public furor over the nine-page document since its existence was reported in The Washington Times on Tuesday.
In her statement Wednesday, Ms. Napolitano defended the report, which says "rightwing extremism" may include groups opposed to abortion and immigration, as merely one among several threat assessments. But she agreed to meet with the head of the American Legion, who had expressed anger over the report, when she returns to Washington next week from a tour of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Hegseth, an Army veteran who served in Iraq, said the report represents a "gross misunderstanding and oversimplification" of the country's service members. He did not call for Napolitano's ouster, but said he would accept her resignation.
"If she volunteered to step down, that'd be very honorable of her," Hegseth said. "It would be a recognition of what she did."
Napolitano defended the report Wednesday, saying it is part of an ongoing series of assessments to provide information to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies on "violent radicalization" in the United States.
"Let me be clear: we monitor the risks of violent extremism taking root here in the United States," Napolitano said in a statement. "We don't have the luxury of focusing our efforts on one group; we must protect the country from terrorism whether foreign or homegrown, and regardless of the ideology that motivates its violence."
But the unclassified report, which was produced by DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis also cited the case of Timothy McVeigh, a decorated Gulf War veteran who was executed in 2001 after being convicted of killing 168 people during the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995.
"The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today," the report reads.
Rehbein criticized the report in a letter sent to Napolitano on Monday.
America should be OUTRaged at these attacks on WE THE PEOPLE
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
'Rightwing Extremism' IF You Do Not Agree with the Left Wing Extremism They YOU indeed must be an American Terrorist "Correct"?
If you believe in your family and low taxes and protecting your family and believe you have a right in this country to be apart of we the people Then according to the Left Wing, YOU in fact are a bad person.
THIS has gone too far! Period, The Tea Parties where more than the Left Wing Keith Olberman adoring liberals could stand, So they have to twist the actual truth and bend it to suite them in some crazy way, Anyone who drives an American made Mustang and owns a gun, is just an awful person. They support gays and illegals and drive Asian cars, and are against guns. They have somehow giving Middle Eastern Terrorists "RIGHTS" The want Illegals to be able to VOTE, They want to disarm all of America, Because criminals adore un armed victims. and The left wants to call Good America Loving Law Abiding Citizens "Terrorists" Its my belief that they have it backwards. MSNBC is the Most corrupted Network out there, Ted Turner and GE They are terrorists to our country, NOT all the GREAT Military Serving Citizens of this Country. Secretary Janet Napolitano Please Please Resign your post!!!!
She was an absolute horrible Governor of the wonderful state of Arizona and she is a absolutely horrible Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security...Period!
She never did any thing to true up the border between AZ and Mexico.
She never supported the efforts of the Great Sheriff of Maricopa County AZ Joe Arpaio
The People of this wonderful State Of AZ ..love and adore Mr. Arpaio He unlike our EX Governor Does his Job and does it very very well indeed!
Sheriff Joe - Re-elected
TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO - HE IS THE MARICOPA COUNTY SHERIFF AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER.
THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY:
Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in Arizona) who created the "tent city jail":
He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.
He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights. Cut off all but "G" movies.
He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.
Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination.
He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TV again only let in the Disney channel and the weather channel.
When asked why the weather channel he replied, so they will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.
He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value.
When the inmates complained, he told them, "This isn't the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don't come back."
He bought Newt Gingrich' lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails.
When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.
More on the Arizona Sheriff:
With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just set a new record), the Associated Press reports: About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts.
On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees inside the week before.
Many were also swathed in wet, pink towels as sweat collected on their chests and dripped down to their pink socks.
"It feels like we are in a furnace," said James Zanzot, an inmate who has lived in the tents for 1 ½ years. "It's inhumane."
Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: "It's 120 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to wear full battle gear, but they didn't commit any crimes, so shut your damned mouths!"
Way to go, Sheriff! Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.
This my friends is "CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN" Surely not Mr. Obama or Clintons way
But it works for us all here in Arizona... Thanks JOE!
We The People NEED to stand up for whats right, whats fair, in OUR Country.
Stop allowing the Left Wing Zealots run your lives!!
Protest to CBS CNN MSNBC...These networks do not show TRUTH or Justice
The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.
The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on Earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule.
These Left Wing Zealots such as Keith Olberman have NO Idea of our Forefathers intent and furthermore They simply to not care...They strive to have BIG, Huge, Government.

Thank God for the US Navy and the Honorable Navy Seals
American sea Captain Richard Phillips was safely rescued Sunday from four Somali pirates, who had been holding him for days in a lifeboat off the coast of Africa, a U.S. intelligence official said.
Three of the pirates were killed and one was in custody after what appeared to be a swift firefight off the Somali coast, the official said.
Initial reports indicate Phillips jumped overboard for a second time and the military was able to take advantage of the situation.
Phillips, 53, of Underhill, Vt., was transported to the USS Bainbridge nearby. He is resting comfortably after a checkup, the Navy said.
"Andrea and Richard have spoken and you can imagine their joy and what a happy moment it was for them," family spokeswoman Alison McColl said outside the Phillips' house.
McColl said Andrea wanted to thank the world for their prayer and wishes for her husband's safe return.
Thank God someone finally had the American “GUTS” to do something.
Let’s take advantage of a good “Crisis” Right?
If it were up to me I wouldn't have allowed this to carry on for one day little lone (4) We must not all this Somalian Scum to take American people hostage. **NOTE EVER!!** Ronald Reagan wouldn't of ever allowed this kind of thing, and President "Ohbama" had better buckle in for the long run on this.
We need to beef up American presents in this area, and let this Ransom seeking scum know that we mean business.
"The ships crew, placed an American flag over the rail of the top of the Maersk Alabama and whistled and pumped their fists in the air. Crew fired a bright red flare into the sky from the ship"
American need more absolute hero's such as "U.S. Navy Cmdr. Frank Castellano "
Believe you me "HE" didn't need Oh Bama's permission to do as he did. He lives his life by the Honor and dignity of the US Navy!!!!!
He had one of the scumbags aboard his boat, 1 down 3 to go, He gave the order to the Seal Team, and they followed through on the success of an American recovery team.
This indeed gives me the greatest pride in being an American citizen!
We should invade that country by sea with the masses and overtake the entire crime lined country and make hay while the sun shines there.
Then and only then would these types of actions stop in that part of the world.
"Fire Hot" "Fire Burn" They must be taught not to mess with the United States
and WE shouldnt give a dam what the UN thinks...Because who cares!
WE Must Protect all Legal Citizens of OUR United States of America.
Thomas Jefferson did not negotiate with pirates, “…it will be more easy to raise ships and men to fight these pirates into reason, than money to bribe them.” is what He said
The Barbary pirates bravado became their demise — something the Somalis might keep in mind. The Barbary pirates were finally brought to their knees by their encounters with the Americans, and by the French invasion of Algiers in 1830.
Thomas Jefferson Quotes
If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?
That government is best which governs least.
When governments fear people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
The man who fears no truth has nothing to fear from lies.
He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.
MANAMA, Bahrain (CNN) -- U.S. Navy snipers fatally shot three pirates holding an American cargo-ship captain hostage after seeing that one of the pirates "had an AK-47 leveled at the captain's back," a military official said Sunday.
Capt. Richard Phillips, right, stands with U.S. Navy Cmdr. Frank Castellano after Phillips' rescue Sunday.
1 of 3 The captain, who'd been held in a lifeboat in the Indian Ocean since Wednesday, was rescued uninjured, Navy Vice Adm. Bill Gortney told reporters.
Capt. Richard Phillips' ship, the Maersk Alabama, was stormed by pirates 300 miles off Somalia on Wednesday morning. He was "resting comfortably" on the USS Boxer after his rescue Sunday night, according to the Navy.
Phillips contacted his family and received a routine medical exam after his rescue at 7:19 p.m. (12:19 p.m. ET), the Navy Central Command said.
"The captain is in good health. He's showered up and in a clean set of clothes," Gortney said in a telephone news conference from Navy Central Command in Bahrain.
U.S. forces moved to rescue Phillips after seeing him in imminent danger on the lifeboat, Gortney said. A fourth pirate was negotiating Phillips' fate aboard the nearby USS Bainbridge.
"While working through the negotiations process tonight, the on-scene commander from the Bainbridge made the decision that the captain's life was in immediate danger, and the three pirates were killed," Gortney said. "The pirate who surrendered earlier today is being treated humanely; his counterparts who continued to fight paid with their lives."
The three pirates, who were armed with AK-47 rifles, were killed by shooters who were aboard the Bainbridge,
The fourth pirate was aboard the Bainbridge most of the day and told military negotiators that he wasn't going back to the other pirates, according to a defense official with knowledge of the situation.
It's the first time in modern history that the United States has in custody a pirate who carried out an attack on a U.S. citizen, said a senior U.S. official with knowledge of the situation. The source said figuring out what to do with the pirate is a sensitive issue.
Phillips' rescue came a day after he dove into the water in an attempt to escape his captors, Gortney said. The pirates "shot in the water at him" but eventually recaptured him without injuring him, Gortney said.
Maersk Line Limited President and CEO John Reinhart called Phillips "a leader of men ... [and] a brave and courageous man."
He said he has spoken with Phillips and said the captain is "feeling quite good."
Phillips and his family, through Reinhart, expressed gratitude to the U.S. Navy.
"I actually was more concerned for his family," said Adm. Rick Gurnon, head of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, where Phillips had trained. "As a captain in sea, in a lifeboat, he was comfortable -- even if he was sharing it with Somali pirates."
Gurnon stressed that while Phillips was rescued, more than 200 mariners remain captives at sea.
"The pirates have a great business model that works for them: See ships, take ransom, make millions," he told reporters.
At the White House, President Obama issued a statement saying he is "very pleased that Capt. Phillips has been rescued and is safely on board the USS Boxer."
I ask that all citizens of this country pull together and write your congress and other government people and ask that they beef up our US Navy presence in that area of the world. and I ask the young people of today to sign up for some type of military service to help and provide us a well and secure country.
OUR Forefather would be proud of what was accomplished today.

This is a letter that I wrote to Mike Jackson the CEO of AutoNation
This liberal expects all Americans to drive a Toyota Prius.
Dear Mike Jackson I watched you talking to the Governor of Michigan. Man oh man are you ever a liberal leech, Wanting the Government to mandate $4.00 per gallon gas. Just so you can push your ultra liberal Prius agenda. People like you make me sick to my stomach, Toyota is a Japanese vehicle and doesn't support the USA at all, whats wrong with you people? Are you so intent on the ruination of our country, That you are brain dead? You Sir will never mandate to this Army vet that I drive a ugly death trap, You Mr. Liberal shall never mandate my old vehicles off the road! We are Americans and I have the right to drive what I choose, NOT what you choose, Try and remember that. How is a contractor going to haul sheets of drywall in a Prius? Please answer, I would adore to hear your answer. Pull my boat with your liberal Japanese made death trap, I would love to watch, Liberals like you think you can just mandate "WE THE PEOPLE" into submission. Well Sir you can not! Let me ask you something, So what if one third of the US population had to plug in their vehicles at night, It not only would raise our light bills but it would cause usage issues with the electrical grid, Making the already stressed electrical system work harder and use more energy, So truly what are you saving? People like yourself are only interested in one thing and one thing only Lining your ultra liberal pockets with cash from the American people. You hope for the failure of the Big Three so you can push your un American agenda, I choose to drive a thirty year old Ford, and you know something, it gets 26 mpg and has a v/8 Thats right. So put that in your ultra liberal agenda pipe and smoke it. You will mandate nothing! You are the problem not the solution here. You try and push your liberal agenda's and make our country weak and available for an attack. I Sir with for one That people like you wouldn't speak for the people of this country. You will not force me to drive a death trap! I will do my part as a "GOOD and TRUE" American and battle your ultra liberal agenda all the way until my death. What we need in this country is a $6500.00 tariff on all foreign vehicles to level the playing field. "NOW" that would help. Also how are we disposing of all the used auto batteries once they're spent? Seem to be more hazardous waste to me. Are we now going to fill our landfills with these toxic battery's? I guess you do not care about that right. You just care about selling ultra liberal imports in our USA Have a great day.
This liberal pukes do not realize that there are old car collectors, and others that just want to drive older cars, They also do not realize that some people are contractors and use their vehicle for their business. Some of us have boats, travel trailers, and toy haulers, THAT we cant tow with a Prius.
These stupid ass liberal degenerates don't understand, why we love older vehicles, They think that they are junk. They want to mandate gasoline at $4.00 a gallon to force people to buy smaller more fuel efficient vehicles. They have NO Clue that our energy grid couldn't withstand everyone have vehicles plugged in.
and that the power plants would ramp up production and have to use more coal, completely defeating the purpose of an electric vehicle.
I like so many good American people are sick and tired of these liberal tree hugging do gooders. We are indeed Americans and we have the right to affordable fuels and we have the right to drive what we want, We are still indeed a FREE People.
All of you need to write your Government people and let them know how you feel about this issue, As we speak right now California Liberals are trying to mandate black cars off the road, Whats next Red? Blue? Purple? We all need to contact the United States Government and let them know how we feel about them trying to mandate our lives. I am keeping my old American vehicles weather our Government likes it or not.
We should be mandated by anyone to drive anything.
Unless you feel the need to be under some type of Socialistic rule.
Autonation CEO Mike Jackson: just another exec in favor of higher gas taxes
by Sam Abuelsamid on Jan 26th 2009 at 8:10PM
Executives of large companies by and large tend to skew toward the more conservative side of the political spectrum and generally eschew increased taxes on anything. However, a growing handful (see here) seems to be coming to the same realization of late, a realization that completely escapes most politicians: cheap gas is bad for America, especially if we want the country to move to more efficient, lower emitting vehicles.
The latest to jump on the increased gas tax bandwagon is Mike Jackson, CEO of AutoNation. AutoNation is the largest dealer group in the country with 311 franchises at 239 locations and 25,000 employees. Jackson realizes that simply mandating more efficient vehicles through either fuel economy or emissions rules without stimulating demand for those vehicles will leave his stores with a lot of stock that customers don't necessarily want to buy.
People tend to think of efficiency in relation with current fuel prices. When prices are low, they buy less efficient vehicles. Jackson is promoting an extra $1/gallon tax phased in over five years. The problem is, will any politician put their neck on the line to support higher fuel prices?
Pull together People we need to beat these liberals to a pulp.
Thanks Vance Keaton

Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell was born in Huntsville, Texas in 1975.
A graduate of BUD/S Class 228, he was the only survivor of the fateful events of June 28, 2005 in Afghanistan. Luttrell and three teammates from SEAL Team TEN were assigned to a reconnaissance mission, operation RED WING, in the Hindu-Kush mountain region of Afghanistan. Their objective was to gather intelligence on Taliban movement in the area. Luttrell’s team was eventually discovered and outnumbered by over 200 Taliban fighters. Petty Officer Luttrell was the only to survive enemy contact. In the rescue mission that ensued, 16 Special Forces personnel, including 8 Seals, died when their helicopter was shot down by Taliban fighters. It was the largest single-day loss of life in the SEALs’ history.
In 2006, Petty Officer Luttrell was awarded the Navy Cross for combat heroism.
His full story is documented in his heroic account of the operation, entitled: Lone Survivor.
NOW Some Scumbag Punks, Killed his beloved Dog!!!
For What? What did these JOYRIDING Baggy pant wearing Scum get out of Murdering a Innocent pet?
On Thursday I believe it was, Wednesday or Thursday about 1:00 a.m., Marcus is a guy who doesn't sleep anymore at night. He sleeps during the daytime. And about 1:00 he happened to be awake and he heard a gunshot. He lives on a ranch with his mother in Texas. He grabs his gun and he goes outside. There he sees, I believe it was four. It may be three but I believe it was four young men 18 to 24 years old, all of them, where they had just shot his dog. Marcus' dog is named Dasy. Each letter represents D A S Y represents one of the fallen members of his team. It was given to him in recovery to help him through the recovery process. This dog means everything to Marcus. Marcus had his gun and he took it out and he put it right between the eyes of one of the guys. He was standing away from them, pointed right between the eyes. Now, here's a SEAL team member who is wildly, he's just, he is having trouble, man. He is still recovering from his injuries. He had just gotten out of surgery. He's standing there with a gun between the guy's eyes. He doesn't fire. All four and he's just saying, "You killed my dog." They executed his dog. "You killed my dog. Why would you do that?" They run. They get into his car. Marcus gets into his truck, chases them over four counties, finally runs them into a ditch. He calls the Rangers. The Texas Rangers arrive and these guys, when the Texas Rangers are taking these guys away, Marcus has held them there by a gun. As the Rangers are taking these guys away, they're threatening Marcus' life and saying, "When we get out, we're coming for you next. First it was your dog. It's going to be you next. You don't know who you're messin' with." That's when Marcus kind of snapped just a little bit and said to the Ranger, "Excuse me, ranger, do you know who I am?" He said, "Yes, sir, Mr. Luttrell, I do." He said, "You might want to explain to these punks because I could have killed them 600 different ways and if I wanted to kill you guys after what you would have done what you just did to my dog, I would have pulled you down into my basement and I would have tortured you for days and you wouldn't have died until you begged me for death. So before you start saying you're going to come after me, you better learn who you've just whose dog you just killed."

NOTE TO AMERICA
I will do everything in my power to bring these scumbags to justice
and to help the Honorable Navy Seal to deal with his grief.
I am outraged that these punks have nothing better to do, then drive around and "KILL" people's beloved pets.
This is completely a SIGN of terrible Parenting! Bottom Line
Did these puke ass punks not have pets at their homes? why are they heartless beasts?
IF IT WERE up to ME, all of these beasts would be hung up in the street and we would all watch them die!
I for one am an animal lover, and if someone had shot by "Blue Heel er" as they did this mans, I would not have showed the restraint this Navy Seal did. Believe me!
Please America I am asking that you pray for justice, and healing for this American hero, and pray that the sole of his adoring loving pet makes it to Rainbow Bridge.
God Bless this Navy Seal and American Hero.
and lets see True Texas Justice done
This is the Walker County Sheriff Dept info
American Patriots from all over the country is reaching out
and I would like it if you did also
Thanks Vance Keaton

I grew up on a ranch in the Midwest as most of you know.
We put "OLD GLORY" up every morning and took her down every evening.
We said "Grace" at meal time, and blessed the lord every night at bed time.
It was a kinder gentler nation back then, People were polite and help one another out.
I certainly miss those days, No cell phones, No computers, No GPS, No I Pods.
You attended school and didn't get into trouble, after school you did your chores, ate dinner, did your home work and went to bed, You respected your parents and lived your life. Now things are all different, Children live by a different value system and parents get run over by their children. Young people no longer want to finish school or even get a GED, They no longer want to join the military, Because they have been raised by liberal parents. and it is indeed a real shame.
Barrack Obama got elected because of this, Un educated young people. That require a Nanny State to take care of them. When I was young if I wanted something I indeed had to work for it, My Parents told me nothing was free. If you wanted something you earned it, So you respected it. Now days these younger people have absolutely no respect for anything, Simply because it has been just handed to them.
Its a dammed shame and if you look at today's youths it shows.
Lazy baggy pants wearing thugs, These kids are mushrooms, They know nothing of our history and do not care to know. They will drive Hyundai's from Korea or Scions from Japan and not have a care in the world, About our economy or heritage.
I find this so very sad indeed.
Liberal Parents do more harm than good with their children.
These Kids will be still working at Jack in the Box when their thirty.
and This can and should be all blamed upon their parents. For simply just not raising a quality child, They where too busy for their children..Bottom Line.
There is today a very small number of "GOOD" Kids, If you really don't want to believe this to be true, Just look around the next time you go to a movie or a mall.
Trust me you will see it, You wont even have to look very hard.
If the people of this country actually want "Change" then start with your children.
The attendance of most Churches is down by 45% in this country.
People need to wake up and get their faith back.
Having supper with your children is very important, With the TV off during your meal!
When you go on an outing with your children collect the cell phones, I Pods and whatever. Spend time as a complete family. Get them involved in what your doing, Rather than just pushing them out of your hair.
Ask them common sense things about our country and our heritage.
Know what they are doing Do Not just take for granted that you do.
YOU do not truly Know your children! and never believe that YOU do.
I do not care if you are Republicans or Democrats or Independents, But do the right thing when it comes to your children's lives, Be involved.
Take this advise and work on your children slowly and be patient.
and with every ones help we can make for a better America.
Sincerely and Respectfully Yours Vance Keaton Phoenix AZ
