Barack Obama: Change You Can Count On - More Hunger In America

Anonymous left a comment on Cesar Zambrano's recent post with a link to another blog called Fund My Mutual Fund.

The post contained MSNBC's Dateline video clips of a program called America Now: Friends and Neighbors, a five part series depicting the hunger in the heartland of America. A picture and story you will not see or hear from most media nor from our Administration. From the MSNBC website, a pop up told us that a Duke University report says that by the end of the year 22% of our nation's children will go hungry.


This is a side of our nation that is not very well known and I believe is kept in the closet. THIS SHOULD BE HEADLINE NEWS EVERY DAY AT 6  & 11. It should be daily headlines each and every day in each and every news media. With TRILLIONS made by those on Wall Street, trillions of taxpayer dollars spent to "bail them out", trillions being spent on wars and other programs, NONE OF IT GETS TO THE PEOPLE.

This is shameful. We may have an all time high deficit but still there is money available for what ever those in government and in corporate America want. Should not the first order of business be "LET THERE BE NO HUNGRY AMERICANS"?

Our thanks to the reader who left this link as well as to  Fund My Mutual Fund.for running these clips and bringing them to the attention of the public.

Take the time to watch these clips.


  1. Hunger for transparency, too!

    New financial regulation reform bill exempts SEC from FOIA

    When Barack Obama signed the new financial-regulation reform bill into law, its supporters claimed it as a victory for transparency and accountability. That may be true for Wall Street, although debatable, but it’s not true for government and the regulatory regime it enhanced. The SEC now claims that the bill has given them an exemption from Freedom of Information Act requests, the very device by which citizens and media force transparency in the halls of power:

    JP Morgan Aids in the (Fraudulent???) Sale of Restricted Stock and Insider Stock Sales
    Next up, we have a “how to” manual for JP Morgan private bank salespersons to assist wealthy executives in insider trading and the liquidation and/or monetization of restricted stock. You see, this gets sticky because it very well may be against the law to put a hedging position on your restricted stock portfolio based upon non-public information. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure it is against the law. This is how JP Morgan presents it…

    Just Facts Today, Please
    Fact Number One: Obama, will go down as the biggest lying snake-oil salesman to assume the throne in the Oval Office in my lifetime. Specifically, one of his PRIMARY campaign platforms was to make Government more transparent. So what do we have with the Farcical Retardation Bill (Financial Reform Bill)? Obama going on The View to sing praises of his accomplishments and pat himself grandly on the back.

    But let's examine this closely: The SEC now has stated that this new "reform" legislation exempts the SEC from the Freedom Of Information Act:

    The law, signed last week by President Obama, exempts the SEC from disclosing records or information derived from “surveillance, risk assessments, or other regulatory and oversight activities.” Given that the SEC is a regulatory body, the provision covers almost every action by the agency, lawyers say. Congress and federal agencies can request information, but the public cannot...The SEC cited the new law Tuesday in a FOIA action brought by FOX Business Network.

    That's some kind of reform! Here's a link to the article I sourced, but this is all over the internet: Obama = Less Transparency I guess the SEC is trying to protect its most favorite and coveted porn-surfing sites.

  5. An Open Letter to President Obama

    Dear Mr. President,

    You don’t know me, but I was one of the millions of Americans who voted for you in the last election. I have since been fairly critical of your Presidency largely because I, like many others, feel betrayed by the policies you have enacted upon winning said election.

    However, rather than simply becoming yet another “I voted for Obama and regret it” commentator who has a lot of complaints but no ideas, I thought it better to do my duty as a citizen of this country and try to offer a solution to some of the problems plaguing the US today.

    Forward it!

    Chelsea's Wedding
    Let Them Eat Cake


    It is not unusual for members of the diminishing upper middle class to drop $20,000 or $30,000 on a big wedding. But for celebrities this large sum wouldn’t cover the wedding dress or the flowers.

    When country music star Keith Urban married actress Nicole Kidman in 2006, their wedding cost $250,000. This large sum hardly counts as a celebrity wedding. When mega-millionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump married model Melania Knauss, the wedding bill was $1,000,000.

    The marriages of Madonna and film director Guy Ritchie, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren, and Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones pushed up the cost of celebrity marriages to $1.5 million.

    Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes upped the ante to $2,000,000.

    Now comes the politicians’s daughter as celebrity. According to news reports, Chelsea Clinton’s wedding to investment banker Mark Mezvinsky on July 31 is costing papa Bill $3,000,000. According to the London Daily Mail, the total price tag will be about $5,000,000. The additional $2,000,000 apparently is being laid off on US Taxpayers as Secret Service costs for protecting former president Clinton and foreign heads of state, such as the presidents of France and Italy and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who are among the 500 invited guests along with Barbara Streisand, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner, and Clinton friend and donor Denise Rich, wife of the Clinton-pardoned felon.

    Drugmakers losing sleep over Geron's stem-cell test

    You've seen those TV commercials where someone lying awake in bed stares wide-eyed at the ceiling as if sleep will never come. Then, a patient spouse rises and pushes a pill from the gods of slumber. The blurb ends with a deep-sleeping signoff.

    Some folks in the pharmaceutical industry began wrestling with their own insomnia last week, but a simple pill won't cure their newfound anxiety. Sleep becomes elusive when game-changing possibilities challenge your hugely profitable business.

    Last Friday, Menlo Park-based Geron said that federal regulators will let it proceed with the world's first human test of a treatment made from embryonic stem cells. Success in this preliminary safety trial could bring a type of health care reform that sounds like science fiction: drugless cures and treatments.

    Beyond the effects of injury and disease, patients also suffer from secondary conditions for which pharmaceutical companies market thousands of drugs.

    If you like math, multiply that savings by the number of diseases that embryonic stem cell treatments might be able to cure. You can start to see how profound this change to health care economics would be.

  8. Healthcare seems like it survived health reform pretty well...
