Unacceptable!

While Wall Street is purchasing private jets,$90,000 area rugs,$14,000 waste baskets and awarding themselves $18B in bonuses there are family members burying loved ones that were struggling to survive but didn't. The growing number of deaths triggered by unfortunate economic circumstances is tragic and very disturbing.

Everyday thousands are experiencing the pinch. Just this week alone a record number of jobs were lost.

The President lashed out at Wall Street calling it "outrageous." It is far beyond that, it's unacceptable and enough is enough. In the real world,when a company fails Heads roll, especially after squandering taxpayers money to top it all off. This action needs to be taken before any more money is even considered being given to Wall Street or any corporation that's failing. Otherwise, let them suffer the consequences of their own demise.  

As a concerned citizen, it is my duty to stay in touch with the President and congressional representatives I campaigned and voted for. I've hesitated to express my concerns but as the saying goes, there is power in numbers. Now that we have a President with a open door policy that invites us to be a part of changing things. Visit http://www.whitehouse.gov/   http://www.senate.gov/  http://www.house.gov/  and let your voice be heard.

The First Daughters

The maker of the Beanie Babies is promoting two dolls with name likeness of the First Daughters Malia and Sasha. The company denies the dolls are modeled after the First Family's two daughters though the dolls bear the names Marvelous Malia and Sweet Sasha. A spokesperson for Mrs. Obama stated "it is inappropriate to use young private citizens for marketing purposes."

Do you think the company crossed the line?

We've Got Work To Do !

 

There is so much going on in the world today. The economic crisis in the midst of it all, is of great concern and of high priority for most of us. There is media coverage practically everyday of the hundreds of people losing their jobs. Joining approximately 2.6 million others who lost their job last year alone. I feel their pain - as I've been there and know individuals having a difficult time finding work. Frustrating to say the least. Even those that are still fortunate enough to have a job, there is a sense of uneasiness- wondering each day whether it's their last day of employment. This rampant wave of losses affects us all one way or another. 

President Obama 's economic plan acknowledges the urgency of creating jobs by investing in alternative sources of energy, the rebuilding of our infrastructure including road improvement, bridges and schools.

It's plan and simple, we need jobs. But, we must be willing to explore new careers and job opportunities. Be open to change.

To Be or Not ...?

Timothy Geithner, President Obama's pick for Treasury Secretary, appeared before the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday. Geithner faced questions regarding his failure to pay $34,000 in self-employment taxes between 2001 and 2004. Geithner apologized for what he called "careless, avoidable and unintentional errors." 

Do you think Geithner should be confirmed as Treasury Secretary, which includes oversight of the IRS?

President Barack Obama

President Barack Obama, the first African American president of the United States. An amazing day that I am personally grateful to witness. With tears of joy, I could not help but to think about those that sacrificed and fought for this day. I am so proud of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. They are real people that have played by the rules of education,hard work, faith and integrity. They are true role models of the American dream, which is empowering for us all,especially African Americans. 

A true testament that by the grace of Almighty God ,all things are possible.

God Bless President Barack Obama,First Lady Michelle Obama and their two precious daughters Malia and Sasha and the United States of America.

Farewell!

President Bush gave his final press conference on Monday - summing up the last eight years of his presidency.  For a president who seldom held press conferences and interviews, he is suddenly all over the TV.  Larry King on Tuesday night and a farewell address to the nation at 8pm tonight on network TV. 

Will you be watching? Whether you do or not, what do you think the President should say to the American people?
