Now, look at it carefully. Note that the "Race" question is answered with a continent answer. AFRICAN??
Are Egyptians the same Color as Obama? Libyans? Certain folks from South AFRICA, are they not African?
I lived during 1961. I know that the appellation for a person of Hussein Obama's father was NOT African. He was NEGRO. Not even Black. African American wasn't until the late 60s or early 70s. This makes me doubt very very seriously that this is real. I think the foot has just been shot on the altar of Political Correctness.

We borrow money from China to buy wind turbines made in China which will increase domestic electricity rates so that our manufacturers are unable to
A Chinese firm will supply three wind turbines that will be installed at the Field's Point Wastewater Treatment Facility on the Providence waterfront.Wind energy in Rhode Island is controversial, with manufacturers suing to prevent resulting utility increases.
Xinjiang Goldwind Science and Technology Co. announced Monday that it had secured a deal for the three 1.5-megawatt turbines with Gilbane Building Co., the project contractor. Gilbane was selected by the Narragansett Bay Commission, the operator of the treatment plant, to put up the wind turbines as part of a $12 million renewable energy project.
Goldwind is China's second-largest turbine manufacturer after Sinovel Wind Group, according to Bloomberg News. The Shenzhen-based company has nine factories in China and has the capability to manufacture 4,000 1.5-megawatt turbines annually.
The turbines at Field's Point are expected to supply between 55 percent and 60 percent of the treatment plant's power. Installation of the turbines is being funded in part by $750,000 in federal stimulus funds.
Let me see if I have Obama's wind strategy straight:
We borrow money from China to buy wind turbines made in China which will increase domestic electricity rates so that our manufacturers are unable to compete with China.Pure Genius. Or as they say in China, 你是傻子.

That meeting, motivated by what happened to sawyer last November, when a rough airport patdown ruptured his urostomy bag.
Tom Sawyer: "Off came the urostomy bag and urine."
An embarrassing moment that quickly gained national attention, motivating Sawyer to work with the TSA to make sure other travelers with medical conditions were treated with more dignity.
Tom Sawyer: "I was under the assumption that this would be an ongoing dialogue."
But after months with no further discussion, nor plans to reconvene, Sawyer feels let down and now questions the TS's intentions from the start.
Tom Sawyer: "I wonder, was this a dog and pony show? Was this just done to try and ameliorate what was done wrong, or are they really serious and just haven't had time to bring the consortium back together yet?"
Questions Sawyer would one day like to have answered by the TSA.
Tom Sawyer: "I really hope that they bring us back together again, because I just think there's so much more to talk about and I think we, we could help them."
Sawyer says he plans to continue to follow up with TSA officials until he gets answers. 6 News tried to contact the TSA but our calls weren't returned.

Asian demand for energy continues to rise as nations in the far east region — oddly lacking in “stimulus” spending — continue to boom. Supply, meanwhile, has fallen off, not only as a consequence of the turmoil in Libya and other oil-producing countries, but also thanks to the Obama-ordered moritorium on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico — and the recenly ordered moritorium on future drilling anywhere else off the American coasline.
Obama and his minions have been chasing the green jobs chimera for so long that it’s an instinct. They pompously suggest that Americans ought to trade in their current vehicles for pricey, government-approved matchbox cars, asserting still that there’s “no quick fix” for high energy prices. History, and very recent history at that, indicates that they are mistaken.

World Bank president Robert Zoellick warns that the world is one shock away from a full-blown crisis.
Here are my guesses where that shock may come from :
> European Invasion [ Libya or Syria ]
> Ethnic Massacres [ Africa ]
> Exponential Population Explosion [ India ]
> Regimes Overthrown ie Saudi Arabia [ Middle East ]
> Nuclear Nemesis [ Japan ]
> Economic Collapse [ PIGS ]
> Overheated Economy [ China ]
> Terror Exports [ Pakistan ]
> Food Shortages [ Developing Countries ]
> Radical Climate Change [ Worldwide ]
Feel free to add your own.There is no doubt that in 2011, a “ Black Swan “ event is around the corner

People are getting desperate. There are ten percent fewer middle class jobs than there were a decade ago and the competition for good jobs has become insane. More than 44 million Americans are now on food stamps and that number grows every single month. Millions more American families fall into poverty every single year.
It is time to face the truth about what is happening to America. Our economy is not growing and becoming stronger. Rather, the cold, hard reality of the matter is that our economy is very sick and it is dying. The seemingly boundless prosperity that we have enjoyed for decade after decade is coming to an end. Our communities are being transformed into absolute hellholes.
Those that are telling you that the U.S. economy will soon be better than ever are lying to you. The U.S. economy is going to go down and it is going to go down hard.
You better get ready.
he catered to customers who “normally aren’t concerned about inflation.”
His slogan — “the costliest men’s wear in the world” — helped his opulent clothing store become known as the West Coast’s one-stop Savile Row.
While drinking champagne presented by white-gloved butlers, customers could shop for $2,500 silk pajamas, $1,500 cologne, a $24,000 mink-lined topcoat, a $19,000 ostrich vest, $55,000 crocodile luggage or even a $120,000 Mongolian chinchilla bedspread lined with silk.
Who could afford such clothes? Warren Buffett and Bill Gates? Yes, but they don’t look like they spend so much money on clothes. The Post names a few customers:
From the moment in 1976 when Mr. Pakzad first opened Bijan, his Rodeo Drive emporium, three words bedecked the entrance: “By appointment only.”
The locked-door policy made clear that Mr. Pakzad exclusively catered to men who had money, power or fame — and usually all three. His clients included President Obama, Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant, Stevie Wonder, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Michael Jordan.
Wait, President Obama? That’s not the same Barack Obama who told college graduates not to “take your diploma, walk off this stage, and chase only after the big house and the nice suits and all the other things that our money culture says you should buy,” is it?
It happens that Mrs. Palin’s demarche coincided with a piece in the Financial Times by the president of the World Bank, Robert Zoellick, suggesting that a new international monetary system centered on the major currencies “should also consider employing gold as an international reference point of market expectations about inflation, deflation and future currency values.” The FT is such a Keynesian bastion that the Journal likened Mr. Zoellick’s mentioning gold in its pages to mentioning Sarah Palin’s name at the Princeton Faculty Club. The FT issued an editorial attacking its own op-ed piece, while Mr. Zoellick’s scoop so startled the New York Times that it brought in no less a heavyweight than James Grant of the Interest Rate Observer to write a piece on the virtues of the gold standard.
Alone amont general interest publications, the Drudge Report has been fronting the gold price almost daily. And now the Times itself is out with its a story about how the Fed’s quantitative easing has been a disappointment. It may have, as the Times puts it, “pumped up the stock market, reduced the cost of American exports and allowed companies to borrow money at lower interest rates,” but “those benefits have been surprisingly small.” Will any of this bring some humility to the Fed and its chairman? It will be something to watch for in his first big press conference Wednesday. No doubt it will be one of the most crowded press conferences in recent memory, and there will be lots to ask about. But one of the questions will be how in tarnation Mrs. Palin figured it out so far ahead of everyone else.
Sarah Palin for the Fed?
