A lot of people are getting caught by the William Ayers name but it is not the same Ayers we all know and love. That would be William C Ayers and does not match the name in the listing released. Simply the White House playing games with the released data just hoping people would bite without fully looking at it.
I have long contended and the evidence shows that our school systems are failing us. Many have been to busy with other things to look at what their school system is forcing upon our children. The lack of preparation by the output of this system requires remedial education upon entrance to college to even have a chance to grasp the work to be done there. I would hope that corporate sources would step forward to create a parallel education system to the 'public option' we now have ,since it is in their best self interest to have qualified and well educated output from the educational system for entry level jobs to move our country forward.

A deliberate minimization of what ACORN is because it would invite too much hard looking at the whole web of left side groups Soros has put together and their controlling influence on all left agendas.
From reading the RFQ the only areas to be archived are the ones which are WH channels not an entire social networking site. They justify this as a requirement of the Presidential Records Retention Act. The problem is they want to develop tagging of content and have a search capability included.
Union pensions are way in the hole in funding their unfunded liabilities for retires. Part of the bill includes an injection of 10 Billion dollars into the Union Pension Funds as a 'reinsurance' program. What this does is pay most of the care for those who are retired between the age of 55 and 65. http://www.stoptheaclu.com/2009/08/14/union-pensions-getting-big-payoff-from-obamacare/
Clinton isn't even trying to be Secretary of State. That job has been farmed out the 7 dwarf special envoys the White House has put in place. Read their website and she is usually meeting with the undersecretary of basket weaving from some 3rd world country. She is just a place hold in that spot whose job is to coordinate all the Clintionistas who have been appointed by the administration. Nothing more , nothing less.
As NewsBusters observed on Slo Joe being there that someone noted it would have been two Black guys versus one White guy so he was added as a way to give balance. Just keep Joe away from any microphones in the process.

Yeah don't look now but it is Sunday and the new number is -11. Double digits for the idgit.
They may have pulled it from the access on the YouTube channel but it still remains on the WH website press briefings section. http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing_room/PressBriefings/
In a way I differ. BHO has some yet to be understood goal set and objectives. To archive those ends will require at least some functionality to the financial structures to enable the transitions he desires. A total general collapse like the great depression would be the 'ultimate solution' to cut his agenda off at the knees and stop any chance of it moving forward. Even though what he is attempting is massive and of major scale, even he and more important those driving this agenda know that in very clear terms. It is in their own self interest not to totally break the system but to just manipulate it to do their bidding. Now our task is to figure out how to counter those efforts.
All too many are stuck with the idea that all efforts have to be channeled via the party structure. The Tea Party model can bypass all that. Look back to how much effect the anti war agenda played its hand in the VietNam Era. If you believe you and like minded people are powerless, you are buying in to a false premise.
I will point out that you only hear about the ones they became aware of and disrupted. Obviously it does not address any which may not have been on their radar. The most dangerous ones are those which know how to stay under the radar to forward their agenda. It doesn't take a whole lot of members and carefully screened recruits to do a whole lot of damage with the right supplies. How confident are you that preventative measures catch all the bad actors..............
Some of the closed dealers have names of owners that would lead you to believe they are minorities. Also a number of the dealerships are female owned which would have given them an advantage in bidding vehicles for government contracts.
http://www.opensecrets.org/industries/indus.php?ind=T2300 According to them ,their analysis shows that of dealers who donate 80% of total donations go to Republicans. But that does not tell the whole story. Only about 9 million got donated by dealers last year. It is possible that with that small amount for a total that out of 789 dealers being closed they COULD be the bulk of active donors. We simply won't know until the full statistics set get done after all the cross referencing of over 2000 dealers is done.
In case many don't know the total number of dealers involved here is over 2000 dealers. That is a lot of editing and cross checking....this is NOT going to happen over night.
One I get both classes of dealers imported into a pair of Excel files I will do a first rough cut to determine donations to the Obama camp in the last election. There may be a common bias in both sets against Dems for say their support of CAFE standards. What I will be developing first Total dealers in the class Percent who donated to Obama (campaign fund or DNC Joint Victory Fund) Count of donors who gave Total of donations Average donation per donor
Ok status update. I managed to obtain two pdf files from the court filings. One is the full listing of dealers to be shut down and the other is the listing of all the dealers which will remain operational. Both files have already been converted to text format. I am now working on removing the page header data to leave on the dealer data. After that it will be going in and doing the conversion of the data that is there to comma delimited format for import into Excel and MS Access. I have a full copy of the FEC donation base for the past election running here to compare against, but I will also have to go back and pick up all the prior years as far as the FEC makes available for download. Then all that data will have to be imported into a year by year data base setup. Then each dealer will have to be compared to all the years available and totals will have to be run for democratic and republican donations , including pac donations. That will also require checking the party affiliation on the fly while doing the other stuff. All this is going to take a while to accomplish but it has been started.
So far the data is very strong. Now the rest of the work has to be done. A full cross reference of all the closed dealers vs the FEC data base. Also then to fully get the picture a similar search needs to be done on the REMAINING dealers to get comparison ratios to make a fully informed judgment. There could be a strong anti dem donation bias because of reasons like CAFE standard legislation and that is the reason a full dealer cross reference will need to be done. And I know just the fool who will do it :)
Very sad news for all to hear..word is out that Bill Faith has passed. A good man is gone.

The only question I have is as to what is necessary to be considered 'at war' per this section of the law. Does it require a formal declaration of war by congress or is the AUMF sufficient to enable the code section? To me this could have been used for draft card burners and those promoting them, those helping people desert to Canada or elsewhere etc. Somebody get a JAG on this one please.

Chaining themselves to the recruiting station doors to me meets the test of willfully obstructing the recruiting or enlistment service of the United States.

Alan So many straw arguments in such a small space. Amazing how you question the progress of a still new government but chose to ignore the lack of progress of the Dems on their issues. Heck they still don't even have 1/5 th of their first 100 hours agenda accomplished or some of it even on the table any more. Another is your false premise of selective math where you take the poll numbers and try to lump those who may support the war but just are not pleased with how it is progressing and try to claim falsely that they are in the camp of withdrawal supporters. Read the poll crosstabs and you will see that your side considers anyone not a full supporter of the war as totally in opposition and that is nonsense to claim. In most polls the supporters of withdrawal are more than outnumbered by the supporters of continuing the effort or even stepping it up. To falsely claim all others as supporting your issue would be just as wrong for me to try to spin it that each person not saying get out now is supporting the war fully. In most polls I have seen, if I chose to try to take this type of false framing my against withdrawal numbers would trump your against staying numbers. It exposes the weakness of your position , always has and ever will plus it discredits you as a person open to fair debate on the issue at hand.

Funny isn't it that Bill O and Rush can go to the areas where we have our troops, but Harry Reid by his own admission of Imus in an interview before he got suspended can't even make a time in his schedule since the combat started to have ever visited Walter Reid hospital. Sad but true.
