President Obama’s and our fight - "See the light! Be the light! - Let's organize!"

Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz told for "Der Tagesspiegel",2757436 (March 23. 2009) not only about “We need a global reserve system", in addition he was asked about the programs of US and China against crisis. What's about China, could China be new engine he was asked because "experts" were looking for all like to clutch at every straw and it was known such desire from some time before.
What was point of interest? - The programs are better working in China because China don't give the money to the banks. China is using money to invest directly in country!

Yes this is one point citizens of US - why banks must get so many billions of tax money? The bonuses were paid out higher like already known! From AIG were paid 218 millions - not in March, but alone $ 165 millions in March. They paid bonuses before already using tax money. Maybe this is still not all. About more like $ 90 billions were paid to other banks and were not used to invest into country; looks like gambler hands over tax money to clear gambling debts. What is the time this shall be stopped. Look to China and you can see this must not be, must not be to give so much money away without any new job and without any new investment into new energies or infrastructure. It's a high risk to print so much money on debts must be paid back from US citizens and their kids in future and so must be used carefully and not like in old time of game. It looks like the President has still a big need for help to change system was leading US and world into such a big crisis. President Obama was maybe one of the last got knowledge about the bonuses.

So we have already two big problems: the wasted money with gamblers and the wars are still wasting money. (and Prof. Joseph Stieglitz wrote already very well too about the "The $3 Trillion War" of Iraq 2008 and there is still more).

Maybe you want take a look now to "Charting the Road to Ruin": Lining up for food and water, Louisville, Kentucky, 1937. By Margaret Bourke-White/Time & Life Pictures/Getty Images.
James K. Galbraith wrote 2006: "Today, the signature of modern American capitalism is neither benign competition, nor class struggle, nor an inclusive middle-class utopia. Instead, predation has become the dominant feature — a system wherein the rich have come to feast on decaying systems built for the middle class. The predatory class is not the whole of the wealthy; it may be opposed by many others of similar wealth. But it is the defining feature, the leading force. And its agents are in full control of the government under which we live." [The Predator State] - This is a gift too Obama got from neocons in coming to Washington.
I could read an interview of Galbraith for into German today, March 23. 2009. He told bankruptcy would the best for some banks were getting billions of tax money and he had spoken about the need of controlling too. The old management of banks had to change to find out out more of the true! A problem would be too that a debt ridden bank wouldn't bee interested in normal work and so there is high danger for new gamble again. If old management is thinking the bank will sooner or later be still closed they will try to get out so much money like possible - your tax money! A domino effect would come now or later. The question would only be if we want still wait and the costs could only be bigger later. Important for him is too, that crisis is a work of criminals too because he is speaking about "Culture of complicity".

About "Culture of complicity" - "These are treacherous waters." Follow the Bailout Cash - .. But another money trail could make voters just as angry: the campaign dollars to members of Congress from banks and firms that have received billions via the Troubled Asset Relief Program. ...

And what's about with movement of change now?: All should remember same time that right wing were beginning to built right movement of neocons about 1976 after "lessons" of Watergate scandals and were using $ billions for it. Obama is now some days in Washington and we have the movement of change since last year, first for election and now to organize country. There was some time necessary too from well known words of Kennedy to the day first humankind could walk on the Moon.

Something international to new plan:

Worry about the Americans
Diane Francis, Financial Post (Canada)
...The problem now is the problem solvers, both financial and political.
Despair over financial policy
New York Times (Paul Krugmann)
...In effect, Treasury will be creating — deliberately! — the functional equivalent of Texas S&Ls in the 1980s: ...
The New New Plan — Same As the Old Plan.
Wall Street Journal
... So who gets left out in the cold? The taxpayer, natch.
News from Germany (into German) like: Obama plays with Mephisto or Dancing with a zombie or old plan like new plan - and now of course always the up and later down of stock market or Geithner had given USD short time impulse, of course stock markets are betting on effect of Geithner and looking for something can use to invest in this time, like China told they don't see another way like to buy still US government loans

New ideas from Asia: Chinese central bank backs Russian idea for new reserve currency
... Zhou Xiaochuan wrote in an essay posted on the bank's website that the goal of the international monetary system is to "create an international reserve currency that is disconnected from individual nations and is able to remain stable in the long run, thus removing the inherent deficiencies caused by using credit-based national currencies." ...

Prof. Stieglitz desperately:
One wishes oneself nothing dearer than a constant supply of tax funds at the Wall Street.
The crucial question reads: Who will carry these losses?
The experiences in other countries show certainly that the costs of the state can grow in the gigantic, if the financial markets keep the last word.
As long as the participants in the financial sector the feeling prevails that one will protect it all possible - including of them produced - disasters, we have a moral hazard problem.
(From news in Germany beside news about now up and later down in stock market)

March 24. 2009 Aim US thus clearly on a monetarization of their national debt ?
Folker Hellmeyer
( chief analyst that of Bremen Landesbank): The answer is yes. ... Some one, under it also China, prognosticates from there already an end dollar as world key currency - you also?
Hellmeyer: The American century is definitely past. ...
The world financial system develops at present from a unipolar to a multipolar system. To that extent I quite agree the Chinese beginning to place the dollar in question.

A big first step -- Well begun is half done.

The message Barack Obama had sent to all active supporter Tue, 17 Feb 2009 - democracy is coming back, a president like we want it:

And this is my answer to racist ny post cartoon - please, digg it See the original image at changeforbetterworld.blogspot.… —:
(I think since months already that time of a lot of grassroots movement is more worth like time of smaller number of racists and neocons - so my answer is to arm in organizing should be best answer. A day has always 24h, only money can be used for speculating. Yes we can!)

You can find a lot comments there like: "Republicans are hypocritical lieing bigots." "They're dreadfully outnumbered, but most of those people are Brahman cows." "Can't FOX find a better political commentator?" ...

And this is now something well again - i got message from Cathy Zoi,
The We Campaign (
You spoke and Washington listened. With President Obama's signature on economic recovery legislation yesterday, America made the largest investment in clean energy and green jobs in our history.
Now we need to build on this momentum. I've recorded a special message to say thank you, and share our strategy going forward.

What's about Reps were voting against
stimulus bill? - " Former Governor Mitt Romney’s Free and Strong America PAC today sent $1,000 checks ...."

Mitt Romney sends checks to GOP Reps who voted "NO" on stimulus bill

And this now something about actual situation, about how important to invest into future of country, there was not any time for doing nothing. I had to find comments like this not seldom - 'Um .. got message loosed my job':

Jobless Angry at GOP Governors for Playing Politics See the original image at — ( 45 Diggs) — “It just seems unreasonable, ” Mr. Kight said, “that when people probably need the help the most, that because of partisan activity, or partisan feelings, against the current new administration, that Perry is willing to sacrifice the lives of so many Texans that have been out of work in the last year.”

And here a comment about this Perry from Texas and how Reps working in Texas:

Rick Perry is a moron, plain and simple, unfortunately there are a lot of other republican morons down here in Texas who keep voting for the liar and thief. His chief of staff resigns to go to work for a big pharma company and they give Perry $10,000 for his campaign that is 4 years away. Perry then mandates that every single girl in Texas must get immunized with a controversial vaccine, which just happens to be made by that big pharma company.
H also tries to ramrod dozens of new coal plants to be built in Texas, bypassing all of the regulatory processes, fortunately all of the mayors of all the towns ganged up on his dumb ass because we are already at the upper limits of air pollution already.
He has other crimes to, I just don't have time to mention them all.

(84 Diggs) Nationalization: It's Not Scary, It's All Around YouSee the original image at —
Nationalization is only a scary word in US because of delusion in US about deregulation and privatisation since putsch of Pinochet and test of neoliberalism about this topics. But some things must be in country hand or will work on basis of special interests and this can be a lot different. Yes we can!

Obama: Tough Times Ahead So We Need Bold Action (Feb. 24)

Read the transcript of President Obama's address.

And this is the point why i cannot understand these greedy Reps are playing still the old game. Like a lot people in MYBO wrote we must stand together and not trying to get ship going down like Reps. The answer can only be to do all possible like Obama is trying or it could come like Ferguson had told:
(104 Diggs) The Great Recession:" There will be blood ".

Yes we can! I new time is beginning!:

Budget:A New Era of Responsibility? (76 Diggs)
Some comments from inside
This is incredible. This is not a gimmick. This is our government treating us like thinking participants of this country. It is an indication (and I hope the beginning of a permanent trend) of respect from our government toward its citizens. After 8 years of being treated like mushrooms (i.e. kept in the dark and fed nothing but shit) we are finally able to see facts and debate them as adults.

Well, and here something of the future of a full electric system without any need for oil and so any need for wars of oil too:
(Full electric system is meaning electric power is coming from power plants of new energies and isn't be changed into chemical compounds first to save the energy because in too many steps between you mostly would not get so well efficiency.)

SSC Ultimate Aero EV: The Fastest Electric Production Car See the original image at —
The car is supposed to have the fastest electric charge time too: 10 minutes! Their Nanotechnology Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery pack is said to take only 10 minutes for a full recharge on a standard 110 volt outlet and will grant the driver a total of 200 miles on a single quick charge.

Stimulus Big Winner: Battery Manufacturing

Ford Battery Electric Vehicle
While it's not clear that battery costs will come down enough to create a large market for plug-in hybrids, the advances in battery technology in the United States have put the country in a position to develop a new battery industry, says Ted Miller, the senior manager for energy storage strategy and research at Ford Motor Company and a manager at a research consortium set up by the Big Three automakers. "Our weakness is not in research," he says. "Now we need to find a way to kick-start manufacturing."

And well things going on:

One comment:
... "As one reporter observed after the briefing, "Did you notice all the questions about taxes came from reporters making over $250,000 a year, especially the TV guys?""

Inauguration Day 2009 - This is the day where the change will begin!

"January 20, 2009 is the day we’ve all been waiting for! This is the day where the change will begin!" - I could find written in Internet, but i think the change was already beginning with the big and strong movement for change! Now the change must be continued. Yes this is correct: " The grassroots movement you helped build was always about more than an election. It's about bringing much needed change to Washington and our communities." ( David Plouffe )

Maybe people from Europe could not imagine what a big step for US:
Anne Nixon Cooper 106 years old Atlan interview Barack Obama

How the right wing were coming out to fight against progress - It's a great parody.:

The Future of the Grassroots Movement

A comment in YouTube: "Hurray for Barack Obama! In just 3 days he has signed a batch of orders that are righting so many of the wrongs of the past 8 years! That in itself is worth every dollar that I contributed to help get him elected."
