A male fairy tale!

Once upon a time, a Prince asked a beautiful Princess, “ Will you marry me?”
 The Princess said, “ NO!”

   And so, the Prince lived happily ever after; rode motorcycles; made love to skinny big breasted women; hunted and raced cars; went to naked bars and dated women half his age; drank whiskey, beer and Beefeater Gin and never heard bitching; never paid child support or alimony; ate what he wanted and screwed cheerleaders and kept his house and guns; never got cheated on while he was at work and all his friends and family thought he was friggin’ cool as hell; had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up .....
The end

Why is the USA Bankrupt?

It's easy to dismiss individual programs that  benefit non-citizens until they're put together and this picture emerges. Someone did a lot of research to put together all of this data. Often these programs are buried within other programs making them difficult to find.

A Feel Good Story !

Ex-Soldiers Recruited by U.S. Utilities for Clean Energy Jobs
Facing a labor shortage, five of the nation's biggest utilities have signed on to recruit veterans into renewable and traditional energy jobs
By Maria Gallucci,  SolveClimate News,  Aug 2, 2011
Solar thermal installation/Credit: The Wild Center America's electric power industry is angling to get some of the 200,000 troops that return annually from active duty to take on the bevy of jobs needed to lead the transition to a clean energy economy.
Five of the nation's biggest utility companies have signed on to develop Troops to Energy Jobs, an initiative unveiled this summer by the Center for Energy Workforce Development (CEWD), a nonprofit industry consortium in Washington, D.C.
"There have been flavors of military in the CEWD's efforts over the last five years, but this is really the big push," Ed Legge, a spokesperson of the program on behalf of the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), told SolveClimate News.
The ramped-up drive to get more veterans into clean and traditional energy jobs comes as nearly 250,000 technicians, engineers, line workers and plant operators are expected to retire or leave the workforce by the end of the decade, according to CEWD.
A June 30 report by the Bipartisan Policy Center found that between 30 to 40 percent of the country's 400,000 jobs in electricity generation, transmission and distribution could be available by as early as 2013, largely because of retirements.
At the same time, transitioning active-duty troops, reservists and guardsmen who have served since Sept. 11, 2001 face higher levels of unemployment than non-veterans across the country.
"This isn't good for veterans — or our economy," U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu said in a statement on the Troops program.
"While many veterans are looking for jobs, many energy companies are looking for skilled workers" as they upgrade aging electric infrastructure, boost energy efficiency and develop and deploy renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar power, he said.
"To compete in the global clean energy race ... we need to diversify our electricity portfolio to rely on a broad set of energy sources," he said. "All of this will require skilled workers."
The CEWD was formed in 2006 by electric and natural gas utilities, unions and trade associations like EEI to ensure a pipeline of qualified workers ahead of anticipated labor shortages. Its member utilities account for roughly 75 percent of all U.S. electricity production.
Legge said that Troops to Energy Jobs is the center's largest initiative yet and is its first concerted effort to reach out directly to America's service members.
"Troops to Energy jobs is the outgrowth of what CEWD and [utility] companies have already been doing," he said.
The program will run as a pilot for the first two years as participating utilities cull ideas to develop a national model for attracting, training and employing veterans in the U.S. electrical sector.
Legge added that the utilities are still "connecting the dots" on how to carry out their vision and have not yet set a target for the number of potential participants.
Pilot participants include Columbus, Ohio-based American Electric Power; Richmond, Va.-based Dominion Resources; Atlanta's Southern Company; San Francisco-based Pacific Gas & Electric Company; and Phoenix's Arizona Public Service.
Thomas Farrell, president and CEO of Dominion and EEI's chairman, said that veterans' extensive military training gives them the strong work ethic and leadership skills ideal for high-pressure energy positions.
Those transitioning from the service are safety-focused, disciplined and civic-minded — qualities the energy industry needs to meet its workforce demands and build, maintain and operate infrastructure," he said at the initiative's July 11 launch.
Robert Powers, the CEWD chairman and president of AEP Utilities, said in a statement that "many veterans may have some of the skills and background already needed for starting a successful energy career, but they might not realize these opportunities exist nor have the information they need to navigate the system to find the right fit."
The five utilities will start to bridge that gap by taking clues from their own existing efforts, such as PG&E's PowerPathway program. Working with community colleges in California, the power company so far has prepared more than 100 veterans for entry-level jobs in the electricity industry.
AEP offers job incentives for its employees in the military, including pay differential and benefits for reservists and National Guard members called to active duty, plus a 10-day leave to spend time with family heading to or returning from service.
Joe Cisneros, AEP's director of workforce diversity, told SolveClimate News that the utility will partner with veteran outreach organizations to carry out its leg of the pilot project at a yet-to-be-determined location within its 11-state service territory.
He added that AEP already has training alliances with vocational and technical schools across those states to prepare students for positions as mechanics, equipment operators and technicians. The programs could also serve to train veterans for the Troops initiative.
"Many veterans have developed transferable skill sets and gained experience during their military career that allows them to easily transition into our industry," Cisneros said via email.
Some 2,500 of the power company's nearly 20,000 employees left in May 2010 under voluntary separation plans as AEP and most eletric utilities were hit by reduced energy demand and higher fuel prices during the global economic downturn.
"As the economy bounces back and more employees get ready to retire, we want to make sure we can replace them with the most qualified people we can and that includes veterans," he said.
Nationally, Troops to Energy Jobs will leverage resources from the Department of Energy, including its National Training and Education Resource. Educators and employers can use the online curriculum to complement hands-on training for jobs in energy, green buildings and weatherization.
The DOE's smart grid workforce initiative has also allotted nearly $100 million and leveraged $95 million more in private funding to train 30,000 Americans to implement smart grid technologies nationwide.
As part of that program's Power4Vets arm, Bellevue, Wash.-based IncSys has developed real-time simulations for training smart grid operators and is covering the cost of the program for all accepted student veterans.
"There are people coming out of the military with the same work ethic, with some of the same skills and with the same pride in what they do" as the electric sector, EEI's Legge said.
"The whole idea is ... how do we identify them, locate them and direct them?"


                           “The Constitution is not an instrument for the
                             government to restrain the people; it is an
                             instrument for the people to restrain the
                             government - lest it come to dominate our lives
                             and interests”.
                             - Patrick Henry -
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months &  8 days to be ratified! Why?  Simple!  The people demanded it.  That was in 1971... before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.
Of all the amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land... all because of public pressure.
                        Congressional Reform Act of 2011    
1.   No Tenure / No  Pension.
            a.) Congressmen/Congresswomen (ie. elected
                  officials) collect a salary while in office and receives          
                  no further pay when they are out of office.
2.   Congress (present & future) participates in Social Security.
            a.) All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the
                  Social Security system immediately.  
            b.) All  future funds flow into the Social Security system, and
                 Congress participates as do  the American people.  It may not 
                 be used for any other purpose.

3.   All elected officials in the Legislative Branch will be responsible for
       their own retirement plan, just as all  Americans do.

4.  Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.
     Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI, or 3%.

5.  Congressional health care will not be an exclusive product. They will  
     participate in the same health care system options as the American
     people do.

6.  Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the
     American People, without exception.

7. All “contracts”  with past and present Congressmen are void,
    effective 1/1/12.

8.  Absolute Term Limits:
            a.) President = two (2) terms; 8 years
            b.) Senator = three (3) terms; 18 years
            c.)  Representative = five (5) terms; 10 years

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

Think  maybe its time.?

Why the Atomic Bombings Could Have Been Avoided
by Mark Weber

“Ctrl” + left click on this link

“America's leaders understood Japan's desperate position: the Japanese were willing to end the war on any terms, as long as the Emperor was not molested. If the US leadership had not insisted on unconditional surrender -- that is, if they had made clear a willingness to permit the Emperor to remain in place -- the Japanese very likely would have surrendered immediately, thus saving many thousands of lives. ... General Curtis LeMay, who had pioneered precision bombing of Germany and Japan (and who later headed the Strategic Air Command and served as Air Force chief of staff), put it most succinctly: "The atomic bomb had nothing to do with the end of the war."

You may well be asking yourself why is Hutch featuring a historical slant on the first use of the Atomic Bomb. Please do let me explain.

Utilizing a reading method taught to me by Father, read the last few sections and paragraphs of this essay first. This way you know exactly how the article comes to conclusion.

I have been writing about the Military-Industrial Complex and how strong its grip is on the U.S. Economy. Having stated that Dwight Eisenhower warned us about this very outcome, I can now offer more insight, and perhaps proof, that he did have dire misgivings on this subject even prior to becoming President. I was not aware, however, that other notable leaders of our Nation also shared Eisenhower’s trepidations.

At a time when our Country is at the edge of an “economic” abyss, reigning in the gluttony that is our Defense spending seems like an opportunity we should not pass up. The corporate stranglehold on our Body Politic needs to be broken, and Defense spending is as good a place to start as any. Mind you, I am not targeting Defense spending exclusively. Absolutely every Government Program and Agency needs to be highly scrutinized and audited in order to bring our National spending in line with our National revenue. Do I hear a Constitutional Amendment in our future? Why not Legislate the Federal Government to do what most of us strive for?
