Jeb Bush, GOP: "Time to leave Reagan behind"
I hereby spit upon their craven compliciot caliphabulous pathetic pussy asses in memory of the Gipper, who was the last righteous man to hold the seat.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Saturday that it's time for the Republican Party to give up its "nostalgia" for the heyday of the Reagan era and look forward, even if it means stealing the winning strategy deployed by Democrats in the 2008 election.
"You can't beat something with nothing, and the other side has something. I don't like it, but they have it, and we have to be respectful and mindful of that," Mr. Bush said.
FUCK YOU ALL.
I said ALL!

By: Geert Wilders
So GEERT has to come alllllll the way here from Europe to say what our REPUBLICAN LEADERS and our SO CALLED CHRISTIAN LEADERS will not say, refuse to say, will not acknowledge..... do not even BELIEVE IN. Nice. And you expect GOD to bless America? You expect Jewsus to "rapture" your sorry asses? Ha. Gird up. Give your heart to GOD because your asses belong to the whores, beasts and popes of Laodicea.Freedom of expression is under attack. This is a theme I am addressing here in America this week as part of the Free Speech Summit being held in Florida under the sponsorship of the Florida Security Council. And it is clear that a serious discussion of the threats to our freedoms in the West cannot come too soon.For example, my friend Rep. Adam Hasner, the majority leader of the Florida House of Representatives was attacked in a press release issued by the national office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on Monday for daring to appear at a private event with me this past weekend. Because of that appearance, CAIR is demanding that Rep. Hasner step down or be removed from his position.

The UAE is expected to play a leading role in one of the world’s premier gatherings of religious leaders to be held in Astana, the Kazakhstan capital, in early July. Kassym-Zhomart Tokaev, the Chairman of the Kazakhstan Senate who has been charged by President Nursultan Nazarbayev with overseeing preparations for the event, told the Khaleej Times that UAE clerics and officials have already agreed to participate in the third Congress of World and Traditional Religions, which since its inaugural session in 2003 has been held every three years.

Stephen Friedman, a former Goldman Sachs chief executive and White House economic adviser, said he will leave his post as chairman of the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York by the end of 2009, a year before his term ends.Goldman Sachs Boosts Stock Sale to $5.75 Billion as Shares Gain
The New York Fed obtained a waiver from the Federal Reserve's Board of Governors in Washington to permit Mr. Friedman to stay on the New York Fed board through the end of 2009 while remaining a Goldman director and shareholder. To remain on the board, he would have to sell his Goldman shares and leave the Goldman board; he has chosen to leave the Fed board instead.
Two other members of the New York Fed board -- the chief executives of Pepsi Co Inc. and Lehman Brothers -- left the New York Fed board last year. "To be without its chairman would have been an additional hardship," said Thomas Baxter, the New York Fed's general counsel. "We very much appreciate the Board of Governor's waiver and Mr. Friedman's willingness to stay on."

Congress Passes $3.56 Trillion Budget Resolution
On April 29, Congress passed a nonbinding $3.56 trillion budget resolution for the 2010 fiscal year. The resolution (S. Con. Res. 13) first passed the House on a vote of 233-193, followed by Senate passage by 53-43. Not one Republican in either house voted for the measure, but 17 Democrats voted against it in the House and four in the Senate. "This budget was hugely important for the president,"Roubini, Johnson Join Government Advisory Panel
Congressional Quarterly quoted Senate Budget Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.)
"This is the starting point for everything he wants to do."
Passage of the resolution drew contradictory comments from opposite sides of the aisle. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said: "Today, for the first time in many, many years, we have a president's budget on the floor that is reflective of our national values. It is a foundation for how we go forward into the future."
However, House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) called the budget resolution "nothing short of an audacious move to a big socialist government in Washington, D.C."
No.... not that Johnson, LOL!
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has added Nouriel Roubini and Simon Johnson to their advisory panel. This is good. They should bring some badly-needed outside perspective to Congress.

The simple answer to this question is, "No one knows." The Central Bank's balance sheet now stands at $2.2 trillion -- more than doubled since September, 2008.
