The Founders Warned Us About Some One Some Time...Could Be Right About Now.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
It serves always to distract the public councils and feeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves with in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

George Washington’s Farewell Address


FLAHR in, the name of a gold coin first made in Florence in the 1200's. The name comes from the Latin word for flower. The florin bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Saint John the Baptist on the other side. The first English florin was issued as a six-shilling gold coin in the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). A Silver English florin worth two shillings was first coined in 1849.
[The World Book Encyclopedia]
A USA Silver ten cent coin, bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Franklin D. Roosevelt (USA Pres. 1933-1945) on the other side (Dime).

Rahm Emanuel And Bill Maher Working Together?

From The Sunlight Foundation
The people behind Priorities USA Action are well connected to Obama and the Democratic party. The political strategist for the organization, Bill Burton, formerly served as the president's deputy White House press secretary. Before that, he was a spokesman for Obama's 2008 campagn.
Priorities did not return requests for information, but others involved with the group include:

In the mere month following its registration with the FEC in April 2011, Priorities USA Action had already received sizeable donations from media interests and unions, including a $2 million donation from Jeffrey Katzenberg, DreamWorks CEO, in May of the same year and $50,000 the following month from Jeffery Abrams, the producer of the hit TV series Lost. Fred Eychaner, a Chicago millionaire and director of Newsweb Corp., gave $500,000 in April 2011. SEIU, the service employees union, donated $500,000 to Priorities USA Action in May of 2011.
This is the Super PAC that Bill Maher Donated $1,000,000 to help Pres. Obama's re-election. And to stick his tongue out at Rush Limbaugh-nah na na nah na.

It'd be miraculous if we won in November because they have SO much money coming in while they plead broke and how "Republicans are the rich fat cats"...imagine. This information will never come out and, anyway, people don't mind jerks like Maher ...imagine?
Rahm Emanuel, Maher and Paul about despicable people.

They (the Lib Dems) all seem to get to the minority mind set that they are getting over on 'the man' for the minorities, that is what Clinton was viewed as doing.
As such the minority and 'poor' will vote for these poor actors-the minorities and poor just seem to not know any better.

CS, That idea has been kicked around for a while (by me and a friend). A name is one of a stump-er.
And then to market it to..., maybe with the blogs now it can be a reality.
