Good ol' USS of A

May 17, 2009 

Just a review of the headlines in the past couple of months makes me wonder whether I missed the memo on the name change.

When did we change the name of our country from USA to USSA (United Socialist States of America)? The central government is exerting its power on free enterprise. Just check these news items: "Obama halves Chrysler's planned marketing budget," "Obama eyes bank pay overhaul; curbs compensation across finance," "The U.S. government has promised to buy up to 36 percent of Citigroup's common shares," "The Obama administration asked GM CEO Rick Wagoner to step down," "The majority party is sponsoring H.R. 676 that would create a single payer health plan in the U.S."

I am sure we will be seeing more news like this in the coming weeks and months.
