    Why didn't the Cain Story make News when it happened. A ruse to distract form the Nation's real Problems. STOCKS SLIDE. A realistic confirmation of the U.S. and World monetary Woes. BEACON POWER. Why is the Federal Government in the Loan Business? The Bankruptsy another hard fact of the Nation's monetary Woes. Bullet Train costs Rise. Who needs a Bullet Train?

    Right, the Cain issue is relevant but hardly as important as Beacon power which flushed taxpayer money down the drain. We can see the priorities of this Regime and it's not citizens.

      Ever heard of Dick Cheney's secret energy policy meeting? Oh that's right he never spoke of those that attended.
      no matter....ever heard of
      Enron? Oh They went bankrupt
      ok...that probably was very newsworthy
      ....ever heard of
      Halliburton, Brown and Root? These companies got no bid contracts and were guilty of building showers that electricuted some of our military personnel, additionally charging exorbitant amounts for MRE's and very high prices for a gallon of gas...all paid by the US Tax party
      ever heard of funding two (2) wars (one completely illegitimate i.e. Iraq) completely off the books?

      Well, you and people like Howard have memories the length of gnats. The hypocrisy is palpable.
