Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has called for a probe into $70 billion worth of pay deals planned for employees of failed banking firms receiving government aid.
Kucinich said Sunday that he was directing his staff to immediately probe Wall Street firms that have received any portion of the $700 billion bailout plan recently passed by Congress, in response to a recent report by The Guardian outlining the firms' dramatic drops in revenue, but not in executive compensation.
Organize a huge protest against the US gov't.......look at the number of people...
Don't people want their country back? Looks like we could use a lesson from the Iraqi people. At least they are hungry for freedom.
I just spent the last couple of hours watching this and it's a very concise depiction of the Crimes perpetrated By George Bush and Dick Cheney against the Laws of the Geneva Convention, the laws of decency, and the laws of the Constitution.
The Movie is called Torturing Democracy and can be watched for free in it's entirety here. Some very graphic scenes, very high quality video.
But mostly just disturbing even if you think you know what was happening during Bush's terms, you probably really have no idea what was taking place until you watch this film.
PBS has been instructed not to show this film until Bush leaves office.
I can see this being used in the prosecution of George Bush, Dick Cheney and everyone else involved.
The Link to watch the film is at the top left under ( Watch the Program )

Dear Friend of Liberty,
It is time to hold the politicians accountable!
As you well know, the unconstitutional "bailout" of failed lenders that became law earlier this month has, as Dr. Paul predicted, thrown the economy into even more turmoil.
As Dr. Paul said, the free market did not cause this problem and only the free market can fix it.
But even as I write this, Big Government insiders from both parties are frantically working to design even worse legislation for the next Congress.
This belongs on the Front Page of DP! And I suggest you email it around to people as well.
Excellent new YouTube video on Federal Reserve as Cause of current "Crisis"!
And it is short, sweet, and straightforward and has a very nice, serious, on-screen narrator -- and it is NOT kitschy or weird or condescending or any of the "problems" that are present with a host of other videos... in short -- this is EXCELLENT to get people thinking, researching, and acting.

Police storm troopers in suits of black body armor, armed with clubs and grenade launchers, swept through a riverside park in the United States of America, arresting and kidnapping everyone in their path, in absolute violation of the United States Constitution.
"Ladies and gentlemen, you are now under arrest. Please sit down and place your hands on top of your head," the stormtroopers blasted through a bullhorn repeatedly, as they marched through the park.
On Halloween night, I plan to sit by the door, reading. When the doorbell rings, I will open it, give some candy to the children... and give two documentaries to the parents.
The two I've chosen are The Money Masters and America: Freedom to Fascism. You can choose whichever documentaries you want, of course - whatever you think is best to get the word out.
I found this pretty interesting and disturbing:
Wow brings tears to your eyes. Dr. Paul has made me a better man thank you. great video westside thks.
Folks the keys to freedom are self reliance. Self reliant people need no masters or government interventions. They cannot be bought or manipulated etc.
So I ask why we are hanging on every up or down tick of the manipulated markets of the Wall Street and politically connected elites? Why are we sitting around waiting for the fraudulent fiat currency to crash? Why are we thrown about by every whim of conflict, protest, argument, or march?

Not Your Grandfather’s Depression by Peter Schiff
The current stock market crash has spurred a vital national debate about the causes and catalysts of the Great Depression. The dominant school of thought believes that the stubborn refusal of then president Herbert Hoover to intervene after the stock market crash of 1929, and his preference for free market solutions, led directly to the ensuing decade-long catastrophe. Through this lens, our leaders assure us that the most recent raft of government measures will prevent another episode of bread lines, Hoovervilles and pencil salesmen. As usual they have it completely wrong. In my view, the Depression was created precisely because Hoover followed the path that our government is now taking.
When the stock market bubble of the Roaring Twenties (which was created as a result of the loose monetary policy of the newly created Federal Reserve) finally popped, Hoover would not allow market forces to correct the imbalances. His policies were aimed at propping up unsound businesses, artificially supporting prices, particularly wages, and providing Federal funds for public works projects. These moves went well beyond the progressive reforms of Teddy Roosevelt, and established Hoover as the most interventionist president ever up to that point. In fact, much of what eventually became the New Deal had its roots in Hoover’s policies.
