Maywood, California faces a second catastrophe -- this one, the water...
The City of Maywood, California is again facing a dilemma as the water has been found to be contaminated... but, today, headlines across the country blared that of 35 U.S. cities tested, 31 were found to have hexavalent chromium in the water supply...                    READ MORE.

In a statement
issued first by councilman Wesley Huntley and then clarified by Mayor Chuck Busby
the Quartzsite Council officially rescinded a decision made last year to accept a report by Lance Decker, LLC -- a Phoenix based consultant.  Decker's report, the councilmen stated, was originally requested to assist the Town's two Chambers of Commerce.
In fact, they said, Decker's suggested 'solution,' for the town to take over the functions of both Chambers of Commerce, only served to divide the
community.

Financial meltdown
c
ontinues as arguments ensue concerning the cause -- and potential fix --of world's economic woes continues. To further complicate matters, an election debacle is predicted that will likely infuriate both sides.
The bailout  [and its rejection]  has everyone talking: but is it concern for avoiding an economic freefall -- or the belief that the citizenry is not being represented that's driving it? Martial Law has been implemented. Even Congress is indicating their opinions are being ignored. Bernanke was warned by Ron Paul months ago [VIDEO HERE]of the looming crisis.




Gas shortages are causing additional stress in the south, causing citizens to wonder if current leaders can get anything right. Isn't the economy, the bailout and the stock market's roller- coastering through the past weeks enough?

Shock and disbelief are now the primary responses among those who thought complete disaster in the U.S. financial markets could never happen.

Are the 'whistleblowers' - Ron Paul among them - going to be the ones that foresaw the problems and worked to turn the tide amidst a majority that ignored the signs of trouble?

The Citizen's Coalition recently formed in Quartzsite is taking issue with the future status of the post vacated when Bennett relinquished his position citing 'personal reasons.'
 

Bennett's letter of resignation was presented to the council Wednesday, August 27th, and formally accepted at a special meeting held Wednesday, August 28th. Many spectators at Tuesday's meeting indicated they found the diatribe presented against Mayor Bennett offensive, even though the case against Bennett -- presented without interruption by Daniel Field-- did not appear to be without merit.

 

Bennett officiated during the first part of that Tuesday council meeting and excused himself for the duration of the session, leaving the room to the remaining members of the council and Town Manager/Attorney Daniel G. Field, to discuss the case against him in open session, with many townspeople in attendance. He did not attend Thursday's meeting when his resignation was presented for acceptance.

The FANNIE & FREDDIE Fiasco, and AIG, MORGAN STANLEY, WAMU and...

 

The bailouts are being described as amounts TEN TIMES THE NATIONAL DEBT. 10% of the banks are on the verge of failure...

The fact is, there's more money changing hands than is comfortable for most people: huge losses are being sustained by even the most savvy and frugal investors, the downturns keep happening and the pivotal 'turnarounds' that would typically allow losers to recoup are becoming fewer with ever lengthening periods of time in between.

Is it the 'redistribution of wealth' that's been a source of such concern of late?

Be sure to hit our FINANCE SECTION for information and even referrals... and stay on top of what's happening in the SCAM department: as times get tougher, more and more are scamming both individuals and businesses.

Drop in and check out the materials available to you from our new office on Central Boulevard. We look forward to meeting you!


Ron Paul has issued a scathing statement concerning the present state of financial irresponsibility on the part of U.S. leadership...          
                                 VIDEO    READ MORE

The Republican National Committee is  it at the center of a firefight in St. Paul MN as the RNC Convention got underway with McCain as the 'party choice' amidst a flurry of protests, with many protesters being arrested.

 

More than a few disagree that the numbers  of McCain supporters were tallied accurately, and it seems to be those people -- some politically prominent -- that are becoming increasingly vocal with 50,000 people expected to participate in the St. Paul protest.

 

Even their detractors agree that they may have a point: Why was Ron Paul -- the stated winner of every debate in which he participated - suddenly prevented from debating either McCain, Clinton or Obama?

Another point of contention is the current rhetoric Palin is spewing about Russia: while the world awaits her making her first real speech, her first remarks took many by surprise.

Those persons within the U.S. [and many of those abroad] who oppose further war involvement are greatly concerned that yet another war is evolving on yet another front.

 

Are their concerns justified?

What's behind the financial crisis?
