The Regime Diversion

I truly wish all Americans would back up and think. Our President and his Minions in both houses of Congress have a stategy of Diversion. Remember the old saying the Hand is quicker than the eye ? Where it applies to regime is as follows.

They are using their abilites to write bill after bill after bill. They Vote, Vote, and Vote. When the State Controlled Media points out one paticular Bill for scrutiny, there may well be another 25 running under the Radar and all more outrageous than the State Media Target.

The Wall Street Overhaul bill, currently being voted upon is a classic example. ABC NEWS (State Run Media) has just given their update at 3:07PM during the Introduction to the Sean Hannity Radio Show. They have announced that even Democrats are unhappy with some of the wording as well as no controls over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This Headline is drawing more attention to this (another) 2700 page bill and draws attention away from the suprises that are yet slowing bubbling to the surface regarding Obamacare. Which I also would add, Bubbles as slow as a Gulf Oil Well.

BREAKING NEWS: Just announced, The Regime has given US TAXPAYER funds to support a YES Vote in Kenys, regarding a Constitutional Rewrite.

So now we are using our Taxpayer funds to influence voters in Kenya. But remember, we could not afford a Cost of Living Increase for the Social Security Recipients. They could not afford the $ 250 one time payment for the lack of a COLA.

Here again, this just breaks and the Financial Overhaul moves from the spotlight. Of course no other News agency beside FOX will report the Kenya story.

More Bad news which the State Controlled Media won't touch, the Congressional Budget Office announced today that 2010-2011 will have more foreclosures than the last 2 years. 1 house out of every 78 homes in the United States will go into Foreclosure.

Do you, Dear Reader see this pattern. While I am trying to write this Opinion Piece, the "Breaking News" Muddies the waters.Just a note, trying to keep up with this Regime's management of the News.

Please, Let's Fast Forward to November !

A Quote of Lincoln all Politicians should follow

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves"- Lincoln

Bill Haslam as the Next Republican Governor of the Great State of Tennessee

First let me say I like Zach Wamp, always have. His office has helped me on a couple of issues and were always prompt and courteous and got the job done

I have decided that Bill Haslam will be the best choice for Governor based on very important point. He has ran a very successful business. His father, Jim Haslam started Pilot Oil Company with small Service Stations. Gas, Cigarettes, Coca-Cola Machine, Tom's Peanuts, and Someone to pump your gas. His vision into the Self Service Market helped catapult Pilot Oil Company into what is today. Travel Centers, Convenience Stores, Multi State Operations.

Bill worked and ran the Company for 23 years then ran for Mayor of Knoxville. He has had a very successful Term as Mayor, running Knoxville like a business, period.

After 2 Terms of Bill Bredesen and some really bad Governor's before him,( Remember Ray Blanton?),the time has come for the State of Tennessee business as usual to end. Stop the crony operations, clean out the partisan boards that create Czar type County "Governor Reps" that dole out the favors to the good old boys. When it came time to "clean up Tenncare" Governor Bredesen threw Me and others like me under the Bus.

Here's the Kick in his wisdom, We were paying a monthly premium for our prescription coverage. It never was the same, sometimes 50 dollars a month, somtime 350, but never ask those geniuses why, they would send you a letter stating your appeal is being considered and you will not lose your Tenncare now. Really makes you want to ask questions.

The reason I know that Bill Haslam has to have a keen business mind and a quick thinker, my father was an Exxon Distributor in Blount and Knox County for 30 years, AS my Dad did, the Haslam's had to deal with shortages, rationing, wild price fluxuations, Personell Issues, Federal and State and City Regulations, and the list goes on and on. My Dad's Career was cut short by Colon Cancer at 58 years of age. The Company was sold by my Stepmother and that was that.

Some have criticized the Haslam's for "Being Wealthy". I appreciate any successful business person and if they accumulate some wealth, fantastic.

If Bill Should happen to lose to Zach Wamp, I will support Zach for Governor, but as for now, I want a Successfull Business Man Running this State..

Thank You,

Mitch Thurmer
