Not sure what to make of this video and I just saw the beginning. There appears to be a lot of discussion on this film out there.

New Film by "Loose Change" Director Jason Bermas

Here's the new one by Jason Bermas--Invisible Empire. It's everything you ever wanted to know about the New World Order--but were too afraid (or ignorant) to ask. I've only watched the beginning, but the production looks very good. I'm looking forward to watching the full movie.
There is a very nice PDF bibliography over at scribd with links to help folks learn a lot more about the subject.

Tea Party Haters - Rise of the Poopers

Anti-government sentiment is at an all-time high, thanks to the Barack Obama, the Democrat Party control of Congress, and the leftover damage caused by Republican George W. Bush's last 2 terms in office. So, why are the folks protesting the outrageous state of affairs being vilified? They're called "racists" and "crazies" and made fun of by the media. Even Fox News is doing its best to stay away from this movement.

Who are these Tea Party haters? Obviously, it's not a simple answer. The psychology reminds me a lot of the antipathy for those who want to question the "official story" of 9/11. Members of the 9/11 Truth movement are often called "truthers" in a derogatory way. And since it's hard to really put-down truth, the haters often call them "twoofers", just to make them sound stupid.

Similarly, those who question some of the weirdness behind Barack Obama's eligibility to be president due either to his natural-born status or to questions about the validity of the birth certificate he has presented are called "birthers". (Note: Folks who oppose people with these opinions don't want to give answers to the questions. They simply want to marginalize, ridicule and discredit the people they attack.) Because Barack Obama is half-black, these people assume that anyone that questions Obama's credentials is "racist" and "can't live with the fact that a black man is in the White House."

So, what does one call someone who is against the Tea Party protesters? I've got a suggestion and I'd like to get a little credit for this if it ever goes viral. I suggest we call them the "poopers". As in party poopers. These folks are even crashing tea party meetings and posing as radical tea party activists just to inflame the haters and discredit the groups. Some of these infiltrators are even getting busted for it.

A License for Everything!

Meet Mike Rome. He's from the Louisianna State Florists Association and he wants to shut down your flower shop if you don't have a licensed florist on the premisis. Is this for real? Apparently so.

It used to be that service professionals were licensed to protect the public from threat to their health or threat to their property. Now, it's come to this. Thank you John Stossel for this report on the ridiculous state of over-legislation.

Controlling Our Food - The World According to Monsanto

PBS aired Food, Inc. last night, but I missed it. It sounds like it covers a lot of the same info as The Future of Food. I'll need to check it out someday. I saw a mention of this documentary. Here it is for anyone who wants to read the dirt on Monsanto (no pun intended.)

Cross of Iron Speech - 57 Years ago today

Address by President Dwight D. Eisenhower "The Chance for Peace" delivered before the American Society of Newspaper Editors, April 16,1953. 

In this spring of 1953 the free world weighs one question above all others: the chance for a just peace for all peoples.

To weigh this chance is to summon instantly to mind another recent moment of great decision. It came with that yet more hopeful spring of 1945, bright with the promise of victory and of freedom. The hope of all just men in that moment too was a just and lasting peace.

The 8 years that have passed have seen that hope waver, grow dim, and almost die. And the shadow of fear again has darkly lengthened across the world.

Today the hope of free men remains stubborn and brave, but it is sternly disciplined by experience. It shuns not only all crude counsel of despair but also the self-deceit of easy illusion. It weighs the chance for peace with sure, clear knowledge of what happened to the vain hope of 1945.

In that spring of victory the soldiers of the Western Allies met the soldiers of Russia in the center of Europe. They were triumphant comrades in arms. Their peoples shared the joyous prospect of building, in honor of their dead, the only fitting monument-an age of just peace. All these war-weary peoples shared too this concrete, decent purpose: to guard vigilantly against the domination ever again of any part of the world by a single, unbridled aggressive power.

This common purpose lasted an instant and perished. The nations of the world divided to follow two distinct roads.

The United States and our valued friends, the other free nations, chose one road.

The leaders of the Soviet Union chose another.

The way chosen by the United States was plainly marked by a few clear precepts, which govern its conduct in world affairs.

First: No people on earth can be held, as a people, to be enemy, for all humanity shares the common hunger for peace and fellowship and justice.

Second: No nation's security and well-being can be lastingly achieved in isolation but only ineffective cooperation with fellow-nations.

Third: Any nation's right to form of government and an economic system of its own choosing isinalienable.

Fourth: Any nation's attempt to dictate to other nations their form of government is indefensible.

And fifth: A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations.

In the light of these principles the citizens of the United States defined the way they proposed to follow, through the aftermath of war, toward true peace.

This way was faithful to the spirit that inspired the United Nations: to prohibit strife, to relieve tensions, to banish fears. This way was to control and to reduce armaments. This way was to allow all nations to devote their energies and resources to the great and good tasks of healing the war's wounds, of clothing and feeding and housing the needy, of perfecting a just political life, of enjoying the fruits of their own free toil.

The Soviet government held a vastly different vision of the future.

In the world of its design, security was to be found, not in mutual trust and mutual aid but in force: huge armies, subversion, rule of neighbor nations. The goal was power superiority at all costs. Security was to be sought by denying it to all others.

The result has been tragic for the world and, for the Soviet Union, it has also been ironic.

The amassing of the Soviet power alerted free nations to a new danger of aggression. It compelled them in self-defense to spend unprecedented money and energy for armaments. It forced them to develop weapons of war now capable of inflicting instant and terrible punishment upon any aggressor.

It instilled in the free nations-and let none doubt this-the unshakable conviction that, as long as there persists a threat to freedom, they must, at any cost, remain armed, strong, and ready for the risk of war.

It inspired them-and let none doubt this-to attain a unity of purpose and will beyond the power of propaganda or pressure to break, now or ever.

There remained, however, one thing essentially unchanged and unaffected by Soviet conduct: the readiness of the free nations to welcome sincerely any genuine evidence of peaceful purpose enabling all peoples again to resume their common quest of just peace.

The free nations, most solemnly and repeatedly, have assured the Soviet Union that their firm association has never had any aggressive purpose whatsoever. Soviet leaders, however, have seemed to persuade themselves, or tried to persuade their people, otherwise.

And so it has come to pass that the Soviet Union itself has shared and suffered the very fears it has fostered in the rest of the world.

This has been the way of life forged by 8 years of fear and force.

What can the world, or any nation in it, hope for if no turning is found on this dread road?

The worst to be feared and the best to be expected can be simply stated.

The worst is atomic war.

The best would be this: a life of perpetual fear and tension; a burden of arms draining the wealthand the labor of all peoples; a wasting of strength that defies the American system or the Soviet system or any system to achieve true abundance and happiness for the peoples of this earth.

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

This world in arms in not spending money alone.

It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities.

It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population.

It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals.

It is some 50 miles of concrete highway.

We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat.

We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.

This, I repeat, is the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking.

This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

These plain and cruel truths define the peril and point the hope that come with this spring of 1953.

This is one of those times in the affairs of nations when the gravest choices must be made, if there is to be a turning toward a just and lasting peace.

It is a moment that calls upon the governments of the world to speak their intentions with simplicity and with honest.

It calls upon them to answer the questions that stirs the hearts of all sane men: is there no other way the world may live?

The world knows that an era ended with the death of Joseph Stalin. The extraordinary 30-year span of his rule saw the Soviet Empire expand to reach from the Baltic Sea to the Sea of Japan, finally to dominate 800 million souls.

The Soviet system shaped by Stalin and his predecessors was born of one World War. It survived the stubborn and often amazing courage of second World War. It has lived to threaten a third.

Now, a new leadership has assumed power in the Soviet Union. It links to the past, however strong, cannot bind it completely. Its future is, in great part, its own to make.

This new leadership confronts a free world aroused, as rarely in its history, by the will to stay free.

This free world knows, out of bitter wisdom of experience, that vigilance and sacrifice are the price of liberty.

It knows that the defense of Western Europe imperatively demands the unity of purpose and action made possible by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, embracing a European Defense Community.

It knows that Western Germany deserves to be a free and equal partner in this community and that this, for Germany, is the only safe way to full, final unity.

It knows that aggression in Korea and in southeast Asia are threats to the whole free community to be met by united action.

This is the kind of free world which the new Soviet leadership confront. It is a world that demands and expects the fullest respect of its rights and interests. It is a world that will always accord the same respect to all others.

So the new Soviet leadership now has a precious opportunity to awaken, with the rest of the world, to the point of peril reached and to help turn the tide of history.

Will it do this?

We do not yet know. Recent statements and gestures of Soviet leaders give some evidence that they may recognize this critical moment.

We welcome every honest act of peace.

We care nothing for mere rhetoric.

We are only for sincerity of peaceful purpose attested by deeds. The opportunities for such deeds are many. The performance of a great number of them waits upon no complex protocol but upon the simple will to do them. Even a few such clear and specific acts, such as the Soviet Union's signature upon the Austrian treaty or its release of thousands of prisoners still held from World War II, would be impressive signs of sincere intent. They would carry a power of persuasion not to be matched by any amount of oratory.

This we do know: a world that begins to witness the rebirth of trust among nations can find its way to a peace that is neither partial nor punitive.

With all who will work in good faith toward such a peace, we are ready, with renewed resolve, to strive to redeem the near-lost hopes of our day.

The first great step along this way must be the conclusion of an honorable armistice in Korea.

This means the immediate cessation of hostilities and the prompt initiation of political discussions leading to the holding of free elections in a united Korea.

It should mean, no less importantly, an end to the direct and indirect attacks upon the security of Indochina and Malaya. For any armistice in Korea that merely released aggressive armies to attack elsewhere would be fraud.

We seek, throughout Asia as throughout the world, a peace that is true and total.

Out of this can grow a still wider task-the achieving of just political settlements for the otherserious and specific issues between the free world and the Soviet Union.

None of these issues, great or small, is insoluble-given only the will to respect the rights of all nations.

Again we say: the United States is ready to assume its just part.

We have already done all within our power to speed conclusion of the treaty with Austria, which will free that country from economic exploitation and from occupation by foreign troops.

We are ready not only to press forward with the present plans for closer unity of the nations of Western Europe by also, upon that foundation, to strive to foster a broader European community, conducive to the free movement of persons, of trade, and of ideas.

This community would include a free and united Germany, with a government based upon free and secret elections.

This free community and the full independence of the East European nations could mean the end of present unnatural division of Europe.

As progress in all these areas strengthens world trust, we could proceed concurrently with the next great work-the reduction of the burden of armaments now weighing upon the world. To this end we would welcome and enter into the most solemn agreements. These could properly include:

The limitation, by absolute numbers or by an agreed international ratio, of the sizes of the military and security forces of all nations.
A commitment by all nations to set an agreed limit upon that proportion of total production of certain strategic materials to be devoted to military purposes.
International control of atomic energy to promote its use for peaceful purposes only and to insure the prohibition of atomic weapons.
A limitation or prohibition of other categories of weapons of great destructiveness.
The enforcement of all these agreed limitations and prohibitions by adequate safe-guards, including a practical system of inspection under the United Nations.
The details of such disarmament programs are manifestly critical and complex. Neither the United States nor any other nation can properly claim to possess a perfect, immutable formula. But the formula matters less than the faith-the good faith without which no formula can work justly and effectively.

The fruit of success in all these tasks would present the world with the greatest task, and the greatest opportunity, of all. It is this: the dedication of the energies, the resources, and the imaginations of all peaceful nations to a new kind of war. This would be a declared total war, not upon any human enemy but upon the brute forces of poverty and need.

The peace we seek, founded upon decent trust and cooperative effort among nations, can be fortified, not by weapons of war but by wheat and by cotton, by milk and by wool, by meat and by timber and by rice. These are words that translate into every language on earth. These are needs that challenge this world in arms.

This idea of a just and peaceful world is not new or strange to us. It inspired the people of the United States to initiate the European Recovery Program in 1947. That program was prepared to treat, with like and equal concern, the needs of Eastern and Western Europe.

We are prepared to reaffirm, with the most concrete evidence, our readiness to help build a world in which all peoples can be productive and prosperous.

This Government is ready to ask its people to join with all nations in devoting a substantial percentage of the savings achieved by disarmament to a fund for world aid and reconstruction. The purposes of this great work would be to help other peoples to develop the underdeveloped areas of the world, to stimulate profitability and fair world trade, to assist all peoples to know the blessings of productive freedom.

The monuments to this new kind of war would be these: roads and schools, hospitals and homes, food and health.

We are ready, in short, to dedicate our strength to serving the needs, rather than the fears, of the world.

We are ready, by these and all such actions, to make of the United Nations an institution that can effectively guard the peace and security of all peoples.

I know of nothing I can add to make plainer the sincere purpose of the United States.

I know of no course, other than that marked by these and similar actions, that can be called the highway of peace.

I know of only one question upon which progress waits. It is this:

What is the Soviet Union ready to do?

Whatever the answer be, let it be plainly spoken.

Again we say: the hunger for peace is too great, the hour in history too late, for any government to mock men's hopes with mere words and promises and gestures.

The test of truth is simple. There can be no persuasion but by deeds.

Is the new leadership of Soviet Union prepared to use its decisive influence in the Communist world, including control of the flow of arms, to bring not merely an expedient truce in Korea but genuine peace in Asia?

Is it prepared to allow other nations, including those of Eastern Europe, the free choice of their own forms of government?

Is it prepared to act in concert with others upon serious disarmament proposals to be made firmly effective by stringent U.N. control and inspection?

If not, where then is the concrete evidence of the Soviet Union's concern for peace?

The test is clear.

There is, before all peoples, a precious chance to turn the black tide of events. If we failed to strive to seize this chance, the judgment of future ages would be harsh and just.

If we strive but fail and the world remains armed against itself, it at least need be divided no longer in its clear knowledge of who has condemned humankind to this fate.

The purpose of the United States, in stating these proposals, is simple and clear.

These proposals spring, without ulterior purpose or political passion, from our calm conviction that the hunger for peace is in the hearts of all peoples--those of Russia and of China no less than of our own country.

They conform to our firm faith that God created men to enjoy, not destroy, the fruits of the earth and of their own toil.

They aspire to this: the lifting, from the backs and from the hearts of men, of their burden of arms and of fears, so that they may find before them a golden age of freedom and of peace.

Note: The President's address was broadcast over television and radio from the Statler Hotel in Washington.

War i$ $ell

Today is the 7th anniversary of the felling of the statue of Saddam Hussein in Baghdad. Of course, the story we saw on the MSM was false. This was not a mob like the one that tore down the Berlin Wall. It was carefully orchestrated for mass media consumption.This movie does a good job explaining how wars have been sold to the American public through the years.

This Needs to Go Viral and be Dealt With!

What does it take for the MSM to take note of a story it wants to bury? It has to become so popular online that they can't help but cover it. Such is the case with this video from WikiLeaks which shows our soldiers indescriminately killing innocent unarmed civilians in the streets of Iraq. And, it's apparently amusing to them. This is sickening, but we need to be aware of it, because if our government does not respond to this, then this will simply be an inspiration for the next terrorist attack on US soil. Find these men and make them pay for their crimes!! Make sure to view this film and bump up the numbers.

Why We Fight

Why We Fight describes the rise and maintenance of the United States military-industrial complex and its involvement in the wars led by the United States during the last fifty years, and in particular in the 2003 Invasion of Iraq. The film alleges that in every decade since World War II, the American public has been told a lie to bring it into war to fuel the military-economic machine, which in turn maintains American dominance in the world. It includes interviews with John McCain, Chalmers Johnson, Richard Perle, William Kristol, Gore Vidal and Joseph Cirincione. The film also incorporates the stories of a Vietnam War veteran whose son died in the September 11, 2001 attacks and then had his son's name written on a bomb dropped on Iraq; a 23-year old New York man who enlists in the United States Army citing his financial troubles after his only family member died; and a former Vietnamese refugee who now develops explosives for the American military.

Live from the World Trade Center

One of my favorite bands, Seks Bomba, performing "Cal Tjader" live at Windows on the World on the 107th floor of the World Trade Center. This was filmed 5 months before the towers fell.
For those that haven't heard Seks Bomba, they sound a bit like a Surf Guitar/spy tunes band mixed in with a bit of the Doors and Blood, Sweat and Tears. Fantastic stuff!
There's another video on YouTube from this concert, Henry Mancini's "Charade".

The Best Congress AIPAC Can Buy

From Antiwar.com:
Many Americans who thought that the health care debate was important must have wondered where their congressmen were in early August during the first two weeks of the House of Representatives recess. It turns out they were not hosting town hall meetings or listening to constituents because many of them were in Israel together with their spouses on a trip paid for by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Fully 13% of the entire US House of Representatives, 56 members, traveled to Israel in the largest AIPAC-sponsored fact-finding visit by American politicians ever conducted. And the leaders of the two congressional groups, 25 Republicans for a week starting on August 2nd followed by 31 Democrats beginning on August 13th, were drawn from the top ranks of their respective parties. House Minority whip Eric Cantor headed the Republican group and House Majority leader Steny Hoyer led the Democrats.

A Recipe for Fluoride-free Toothpaste

I've read quite a bit about fluoride and how water fluoridation was probably one of the biggest scams of the 20th century (besides the Pet Rock.) Other than buying some Tom's of Maine toothpaste, I never did much about it.

When my wife recently asked me about fluoride, I googled "fluoride-free toothpaste" and found this article on how to make your own toothpaste. The article is quite good and has links to information about that bad, bad fluoride. Then it gets interesting.

She provides a recipe for toothpaste and then folks start chiming in with their comments. Some tried to cook up a batch of their own home-made toothpaste and lightly burned the inside of their mouth. Others, found the enamel on their teeth being worn out. Still another reported their toothbrush bristles turning brown from their version of the do-it-yourself tooth scrub.

I liked the I-can-make-this-stuff-myself attitude, and am tempted to even try this someday. WWMD? (What Would McGyver Do?) There are some other nice things on the blog, too. So, I thought this was worth a post. Smile!

My One Guilty Pleasure

I know most folks watch a fair bit of TV on a daily basis and hit the theaters at least once a month, but I'm just a little bit different. (OK, most  parents of small kids don't get to go to the movies unless they have a good babysitter.) My one guilty pleasure is the TV  show Smallville.

I think I caught the first show years after I had heard people raving about it. Not being much of a comic books guy, I was slow to make the Superman connection. I had a fairly good idea it wasn't about midgets or anything freakish like that. I caught an episode of season 4 on a rerun a couple of years ago. (The show is currently about to start season 9, I think.) Enjoyable, but since I was not in the TV habit, I couldn't commit to keeping up with the series. And, as with most things on TV--especially on the WB--I thought it best for teenage consumption. (Zit medicine is probably the biggest sponsor.)

Yes, Smallville is very youth-oriented. In the first season, Clark Kent is a freshman in high school. (Never mind that he looks about 21.) Still, the stories and the writing are usually very good to brilliant. The way they spoon-feed you the bits and pieces that make up the Superman myth really help lure you in and keep you hooked. Of course, the guy is no where near putting on tights in the show. That's what keeps it fresh and out of the realm of typical comic book fare. Smallville, KS also must be the most dangerous place to live in the good ol' USA. Not because of the tornadoes, but because of all the kryptonite whacking out the high school kids. There's a higher body count in Smallville than there ever was around Bill Clinton!

I bought a few seasons on DVD really cheap when a local video store went out of business. Then, I discovered that the WB offers free shows online. The shows run in order with old shows going away and 3 subsequent shows appearing on Mondays, I think. I've watched all of season 4 and I am guessing season 5 will follow and then they'll start at season 1 once they've gone through all their shows.

There's a bunch of other shows on theWB.com, including the Lois and Clark show from the 90s. I already told myself I'm just watching this one show, so no "One Tree Hill" or "The O.C." for me. (As if I'd even want to watch those.) OK, maybe a little MadTV every now and then.

Come to think of it, I guess this blog is another guilty pleasure. Oh well. I'm already committed to my post title.  :-)

Most Corrupt Politicians List is out! Guess Who's on it.

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, has released its annual Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians for 2009. It includes some pretty big names! One year plus into the era of Hope and Change, we are seeing a lot of the same ol', same ol'. (Note: Political corruption is not exclusively for old white guys.)

A sampling:
  1. Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT): This marks two years in a row for Senator Dodd, who made the 2008 "Ten Most Corrupt" list for his corrupt relationship with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and for accepting preferential treatment and loan terms from Countrywide Financial, a scandal which still dogs him. In 2009, the scandals kept coming for the Connecticut Democrat. In 2009, Judicial Watch filed a Senate ethics complaint against Dodd for undervaluing a property he owns in Ireland on his Senate Financial Disclosure forms. Judicial Watch's complaint forced Dodd to amend the forms. However, press reports suggest the property to this day remains undervalued. Judicial Watch also alleges in the complaint that Dodd obtained a sweetheart deal for the property in exchange for his assistance in obtaining a presidential pardon (during the Clinton administration) and other favors for a long-time friend and business associate. The false financial disclosure forms were part of the cover-up. Dodd remains the head the Senate Banking Committee.
  2. Senator John Ensign (R-NV): A number of scandals popped up in 2009 involving public officials who conducted illicit affairs, and then attempted to cover them up with hush payments and favors, an obvious abuse of power. The year's worst offender might just be Nevada Republican Senator John Ensign. Ensign admitted in June to an extramarital affair with the wife of one of his staff members, who then allegedly obtained special favors from the Nevada Republican in exchange for his silence. According to The New York Times: "The Justice Department and the Senate Ethics Committee are expected to conduct preliminary inquiries into whether Senator John Ensign violated federal law or ethics rules as part of an effort to conceal an affair with the wife of an aide…" The former staffer, Douglas Hampton, began to lobby Mr. Ensign's office immediately upon leaving his congressional job, despite the fact that he was subject to a one-year lobbying ban. Ensign seems to have ignored the law and allowed Hampton lobbying access to his office as a payment for his silence about the affair. (These are potentially criminal offenses.) It looks as if Ensign misused his public office (and taxpayer resources) to cover up his sexual shenanigans.

Debra Medina on Freedom Watch on Fox

Judge Napolitano, as always, does a fantastic job interviewing Debra Medina. just days before the March 2 primary. This race is critical for the liberty movement. She's got a great shot at being in a run-off against Rick Perry. With a strong showing from Independents and liberty-minded Democrats, she could really surprise a lot of people.

Revisiting the Documentary "Spin"

Going through some old YouTube videos, I saw a reference to this video, which is provided on Google Video in its entirety. From the description:
Using the 1992 presidential election as his springboard, documentary filmmaker Brian Springer captures the behind-the-scenes maneuverings of politicians and newscasters in the early 1990s. Pat Robertson banters about "homos," Al Gore learns how to avoid abortion questions, George Bush talks to Larry King about halcyon -- all presuming they're off camera. Composed of 100% unauthorized satellite footage, Spin is a surreal expose of media-constructed reality.

Best Perry/Medina comparison I've seen

Looking for a good Perry/Medina comparison? Look no further. I've been very frustrated trying to convince my pro-life friends that Rick Perry is nothing more than a war-mongering, neo-con Pharisee, but he sure is one slick politician. Even the fact that he was the democratic Texas campaign manager for Al Gore before he realized it would make more sense to run as a republican in Texas doesn't seem to hold much sway. Here's a good article with an ever-increasing list of great comments that really shows the differences between Perry and Medina. (Try to read a good number of the comments to hear both sides.)

The letter mentioned is full of popular misconceptions about Medina and Ron Paul which have been parroted enough times so that many a gullible soul has bought into them as gospel truth. Please, read on!

Rick Perry Supporter Rips Into Debra Medina

January 22, 2010 by comeandtakeitblog

If you’re involved in politics at the grassroots level, you know who Donna Garner is…she’s an education and social conservative activist, and for the past several months she’s been cheerleading for the Perry campaign…

Last night, Garner went on the attack, and sent out a long e-mail to a bunch of her contacts just absolutely trashing Debra Medina…I didn’t receive the e-mail directly, but it was forwarded to me by one of my sources who asked that I not use their name…

Here's the full blog posting.

How Many Assistants DOES the First Lady need?

Well, if you guessed 22, you'd be correct. That's right! Even though the President's wife does not draw a salary, she still employs a staff of 22 at a cost to us the taxpayers of over 1.5 million dollars. According to this WND story, this exceeds Laura Bush's extravagant and inexcusable use of 17 assistants.

Even though the actual total the story quotes is below 1.5 million, if one considers any travel pay--per diem, lodging, car rental and other such extras--this number easily could be closer to an actual cost of 3 million dollars or more. The Executive Branch really needs a good audit, don't you think?
