President Zero

President Obama, from now on President Zero, has demonstrated the success of Democratic political strategy of the past 30 years, a strategy best exemplified to day by the most powerful man in the administration ... Rahm Emanuel.

Martha Coakley exemplified this strategy in Assachusetts: Ignore the common American, kowtow to the rich powerbrokers, insult people needlessly.

Let's review key points of Obama's winning strategy:
  • Do nothing to hold Bush administration war criminals accountable for their crimes.
  • Reward Wall Street for its crimes.
  • Pack your administration with advocates for Goldman Sachs and the Clinton-Reagan-Bush programs of deregulation, like Larry Summers, Ben Bernanke, Timothy Geithner, Peter Orszag, Austan Goolsbee
  • Blow off liberal economists and related thinkers like Joseph Stiglitz, Paul Krugman, Brooksley Born, Michael Hudson, Elizabeth Warren, Nouriel Roubini, . . . .
  • Charge the American people to support Wall Street billionaires's bonuses.
  • Do little or nothing to aid average workers in the work economic downturn in generations.
  • Fight disclosure of White House visitor logs until forced to by bad publicity.
  • Stop disclosure of US war crimes at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib by, among other things, keeping secret photographs of American atrocities.
  • Repeatedly exclude labor from discussions on the economy.
  • Repeatedly exclude advocates of single-payer from discussions on health care reform while including lobbyists and executives for big health insurers.
  • Coddle right-wing extremists, conservative Democrats and self-serving bigots like Joseph Lieberman while excluding or actively badmouthing progressives and liberals.
  • Fail to end the war in Iraq.
  • Expand war in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
  • Continue extraordinary rendition while paying lip-service to closing Guantanamo and ending torture (but actually allowing it at Bagram, Afghanistan)
  • Continue Bush violations of the Constitution by denying due process rights to prisoners at Guantanamo.
  • Continue outrageous prosecutions of people like Syed Fahad Hashmi.
Such is the strategy of Democrats, 'lead' by Obama, President Zero.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started to get real money.
It gets down to choose a correct companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
