That's right... another attack without a single shot fired or a single bomb dropped from an airplane, again, from The Far East... will once again Sink our Fleet of Battleships that have Supported Us & Our Country's Destiny for over 65 years-- our Retiring Baby Boomers.

Just when you think things couldn't get worse... they do, Day by Day.

Imagine a Titanic event with 100s of millions of passengers... floating in the frozen seas of the Atlantic... starving & slowly dying of thirst-- eaten one by one, hour by hour... by large schools of Sharks, when & whenever they feel the urge to consume their lifeless bodies.

I am Speechless after watching...

PBS' Frontline segment last night on May 16 2006 titled, "Can You Afford to Retire?"

An Recent FDR Moment that Got Caught in my Eye

Last Friday, May 5th 2006... my eye caught this delightful moment while watching Lou Dobbs on CNN,

DOBBS: A new opinion poll shows 73 percent of us believe the country is heading in the wrong direction. In 1933, America was definitely going in the wrong direction, then in the grip of the Great Depression. Yet a new president, Franklin Roosevelt, turned the nation's mood around, and indeed led the nation in a new direction.

Jonathan Alter examines the man and his time in his new book, "The Defining Moment: FDR's 100 Days and the Triumph of Hope." Jonathan Alter joins us now.

I love, first of all, you being here, but I love the word "hope" in a title. That's a wonderful thing we don't hear many people talk about these days.

JONATHAN ALTER, AUTHOR: Well, that's the kind of thing, Lou, that FDR was just a master at: Taking people who had given up all hope -- the country was curled up in the fetal position; 80 percent unemployment in some areas; the banks were all closed; we were on a barter economy; people literally think it's the end of capitalism -- not just a few people, but leaders -- and the end of democracy.

And Roosevelt is told by a visitor in his first week, you will either be one of our greatest presidents if you succeed, or one of our worst presidents if you fail. He said, if I fail, I'll be our last president. That's how grim things were in 1933.

And yet through leadership -- and that's what it is about today, that's what it was about then -- he turned it around.

The Immigration Crisis & The China Grab

Source: America First!
"Unfortunately, since the Summer of 2000... our Economy has faltered & the rest of the World caught a COLD. Businesses, large and small, tried to outrun the Recession and a good many didn't make it. Others looked for another release and they found it in China & India. The foothold they created there outlasted their expectations. Now, their long-term Wealthbuilding efforts are following their short-term pursuits in the Far East. Why would I invest millions & billions in the United States or any other low performing G8 Nation at 3.5% on Return, when I can invest the same amount in the Far East and make 9-11% on my investments? ... Common Sense Wealthbuilding.

President Clinton was a Lame Duck president since 1999, and we have had a Lame Duck president ever since--- Just like President Truman's sign on his desk read,"
