Please note news 


From the video: 

We used to drive downtown and say "This will be ghost town soon." We used to say 3 months, 6 months, predicting how soon those small competitor stores would go out of business "There were lots of unwritten rules; covering up for people working off clock"

"The U.S. economy is gradually recovering from the downturn, yet business leadership is more important than ever before. Although several sectors have begun to rebound or have halted their decline, profitability growth remains slow and fragile for many companies. As the recovery gains momentum, the responsibilities of good leadership have increasingly shifted from allaying employee fears and stakeholder concerns to inspiring confidence in future prospects. Managers who adapt to these changing trends stand the best chance of leading their organizations into a position of financial strength"....Continue Reading

My comment; In my view, there is a huge sea change happening, much like a birth of a child.

Those individuals and companies who tap into the new paradigm and ways of doing business will do well, while those stuck in the old system will face the consequences.  So all in the same day, one business may grow and be wildly successful, while another struggles to survive, or it will fold entirely.

The White House, Washington

Dear Friend, 

Anyone that's watched the news in the past few days knows that health insurance reform is a hot topic — and that rumors and scare tactics have only increased as more people engage with the issue. Given a lot of the outrageous claims floating around, it’s time to make sure everyone knows the facts about the security and stability you get with health insurance reform. 

That’s why we’ve launched a new online resource — — to help you separate fact from fiction and share the truth about health insurance reform. Here's a few of the reality check videos you can find on the site: 
There's more information and a number of online tools you can use to spread the truth among your family, friends and other social networks. Take a look: 

Health Insurance Reform Reality Check

We knew going into this effort that accomplishing comprehensive health insurance reform wasn't going to be easy. Achieving real change never is. The entrenched interests that benefit from the status quo always use their influence in Washington to try and keep things just as they are. 

But don't be misled. We know the status quo is unsustainable. If we do nothing, millions more Americans will be denied insurance because of pre-existing conditions, or see their coverage suddenly dropped if they become seriously ill. Out-of-pocket expenses will continue to soar, and more and more families and businesses will be forced to deal with health insurance costs they can’t afford. 

That's the reality. 

Americans deserve better. You deserve a health care system that works as well for you as it does for the status quo; one you can depend on — that won't deny you coverage when you need it most or charge you crippling out-of-pocket co-pays. Health insurance reform means guaranteeing the health care security and stability you deserve. 

President Barack Obama promised he'd bring change to Washington and fix our broken, unsustainable health insurance system. You can help deliver that change.Visit, get the facts and spread the truth. The stakes are just too high to do nothing. 

Thank you, 

David Axelrod 
Senior Advisor to the President

Can I Clean Your Clock? (Communist China Is Going to Take Us to the Cleaners in the Green Arena)

 Eric - 22 hours ago - 

Over the past decade, whenever I went to China and engaged Chinese on their pollution and energy problems, inevitably some young Chinese would say: "Hey, you Americans got to grow dirty for 150 years, using cheap coal and oil. Now it is our turn.

Green wind energy is available for free now, but only to residents living in New York and Texas. The rest of us have to wait until our state deregulates energy. Until then we have to pretend to be happy with energy monopolies.

Because these two states deregulated, consumers living there now have the power to choose where to buy their electricity and what kind of power to buy.. and that includes electricity made from 100% wind power.
