Crooked banks, more Church news, Bob Greenlee berates council; we need healthcare Gale Norton!

Dear Internet,
I love this town.
Well, today we had gays protesting the Catholic Church, because they wanted membership. Really?? I thought they hated the church because of it's anti gay, anti abortion stance. A church run by a patriarch pope.........doesn't exactly seem the place for rainbow radical gay types. Incidentally, I refuse to buy all of the politics. To me this is just another radical leftist group who are trying to force their religion on a conservative ancient religion....Christianity. I'd like to see this action group try it with the Muslims......... I mean, they cut peoples heads off......big and little.

Former mayor Bob Greenlee came out for Seth Brigham ( sort of) in his column today. He berated the city council for being the spineless weasels they are. That had to be hard for Bob. He hates political advocates who come to council to speak each week. So do most of the council. They hate the public. But Bobs political Republican sensibility shown through when he wrote and stood behind the constitution of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! He quoted the first know that part about " redress of grievances to government". Two weeks ago Seth tried that ole first amendment trick in his underpants.........Well it didn't work. The council was not be criticized........They used police state tactics......and had that pesky patriot arrested and jailed......that'll show him and the rest of you. Do not question. Way to go there Bob.

Tonight 60 Minutes on CBS, the number one rated TV show in history, completely and totally destroyed all of the big banks who screwed America. Nice. Completely by co-incidence, I watched Michael Moores, "Capitalism; A Love Affair". Moore had come to the same conclusion over the past 20 years. Now, I am a capitalist, but these lying cheating Wall Street Crooks all deserve to be in prison for what they did. We have a few here in Boulder............and they are doing it all over again with the 1 trillion dollar bail out. But Moore pointed out that President Roosevelt's laid out a 2nd bill of rights in his 1944 state of the Union address..........You'll notice, it is exactly what president Obama is trying to get passed right now. Roosevelt was successful in passing Social security, minimum wage, labor laws, and HEALTH CARE, but he died before he could get the 2nd bill of rights passed. Who could possiblY be against this in a capitalist society? Here it is:

Franklin D. Roosevelt
“The Economic Bill of Rights”
Excerpt from 11 January 1944 message to Congress on the State of the Union

We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. “Necessitous men are not free men.” People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.

In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all—regardless of station, race, or creed.

Among these are:

The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;

The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;

The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;

The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;

The right of every family to a decent home;

The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;

The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;

The right to a good education.

All of these rights spell security. And after this war is won we must be prepared to move forward, in the implementation of these rights, to new goals of human happiness and well-being.

America’s own rightful place in the world depends in large part upon how fully these and similar rights have been carried into practice for our citizens.
