Position Wanted

Yesterday, I got a very interesting e-mail. The sender seems to be wanting me to hire him for a job, and included his resume'. Looking it over, I don't think I'll hire the guy.

Barack H.Obama
P. O. Box 8102, Chicago, IL 60680 (866) 675-2008

Objective:
To be hired as President Of The United States

Harvard Law School, 1988-1991. J.D., magna cum laude.

Experience:
1983-1984: Business International Corporation. Rewrote articles and reports from foreign services for domestic clients.

1984-1985: New York Public Interest Research Group. "Community Organizing." More details available upon request.

1985-1988: Developing Communities Project. Director. Raised money, hired staff, gave it up because felt like wasn't achieving anything and enrolled in law school.

1993-2004: University of Chicago Law School. Visiting Fellow/Senior Lecturer in Constitutional Law. No articles published, no outstanding achievements.

1993-2002: Davis, Miner, Barnhill, & Galland. Associate Attorney. Sued the state of Illinois to enforce the Motor Voter Law. Represented non-profits and other organizations. No other particulars available, but general client list of entire firm available upon request.

1995-2002: Chicago Annenberg Challenge. Chairman (1995-1999), Board Member (1999-2002). Helped raise and oversaw over $150 million to help improve Chicago's schools. Steered most of it to cronies of fellow Board member William Ayers (who hired me). Final results showed no improvement in schools we sponsored versus those we did not, but greatly increased the influence of Ayers' progressive/socialist/communist/Maoist cronies and their agendas.

Got on the bandwagon for a far-reaching ethics reform bill that did almost nothing to clean up Illinois' legendary corruption. Voted "present" instead of "aye" or "nay" whenever issues that might have forced me to take a side came up.

2004-2008: United States Senate. Junior Senator for Illinois. Showed up occasionally before announcing candidacy for president. Got on board for law on nuclear proliferation.

1. If you think Palin is more qualified then Obama you are living in a dream world. Obama is far more qualified and understands the issues. Palin is clueless.

hcddbz:
If you think Palin is more qualified then Obama you are living in a dream world. Obama is far more qualified and understands the issues. Palin is clueless.

As I understand the MSM Obama executive experience comes from running a campaign for president. Palin has run 2 executive campaigns where BHO has only run one .
Palin has run and won both campaigns and BHO has not yet won so she is more qualified.

She has served in two executive government positions.

McCain did run a fighter squadron and has also run two Presidential Campaigns

Palin has grasp on the US Constitution of the USA something that both BHO and Binden have shown a clear lack of understanding. Since the Presidents job is to support and defend it Palin and McCain both seem more qualified.

Taxes are to raise revenue for the Government to carry out functions as outline in the Constitution not for fairness so again McCain/Palin understand the issue.

President needs to support and Defend the USA against it enemies. Not to strip it of money and power while men stand in harms way McCain/Plain.


2. Vice President is only the eaisiest job if nothing happens to the president. Given McCain's age and boughts of cancer it's foolish to put someone as unqualified as Palin on the ticket

J-O-B-S is a three letter word

Article 1 deals with the Executive branch.

I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man

You cannot go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. Oh, I'm not joking

You don't know my state. My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state is the eighth largest black population in the country. My state is anything from a northeast liberal state,"

"I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. "And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."

"It's time to be patriotic ... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut."
(does that mean that the 30-40 with no tax liability are also un patriotic does it also include war fighters in harms way? )


Nuff said.

3. If you want to continue this argument I can list at least half a dozen honest prominient republicans who admit Palin is ungrossly qualified.

Sure we call them RHINOS they do not like her because she is conservative.

I can list a liberal democrat that thinks BHO is not ready for prime time Biden.

You said, "I think he can be ready, but right now I don't believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the- job-training."

That BHO own running mate has no faith in the top of the ticket speaks volumes.

Here is a bit of a story that has a revealing end.
________________________

the possibility of another terrorist attack, this time using chemical or biological weapons. Plans have been made, and we've already been assured that should such an event take place, our cities, our counties and our states are ready to handle the crisis.

So, it might be a good time to remind everyone that just such an attack has already taken place once, in one of America's largest cities. That time it wasn't terrorism, but what took place was every bit as devastating -- and it could happen again.

It was July 12th, and for the most part the city was bustling about its business as usual. No one but the victim paid much attention when Ethel Young became one of the first to be stricken. What Ethel and the rest of the city didn't know was that hundreds of others had been exposed at the same time she had.

Her first symptom was nothing more than a severe headache; soon, however, Ethel found herself almost incapable of standing or moving about. When severe nausea attacked her, she had no idea that within 48 hours of exposure all of her systems could start shutting down ompletely. By the time she realized how bad her
condition was, Ethel Young couldn't make it across the room to call for help.

That same day, Leonard Hymer, Robert Yankovich, Edward Hoffman and Lydia Payne, among many
others, were also exposed. And they too began the process of dying.

Robert Scates, head of the city's mobile emergency services, soon realized that he had a serious crisis on his hands. Already his emergency crews had been out on the streets for 28 hours at a stretch, not once returning to their base stations, dealing with one death after another. So Scates called his superior. Begging him to force a recall of all medical personnel, Scates explained that the increasing calls to his station were jamming its switchboards. His boss hung up on him -- but not before telling him to quit being paranoid.
It would be the start of a very long week in the city. Before it finally ended, more than 700 people would have died. Moreover, the fact that this horrifying, large-scale event ever took place is one of America's best kept
secrets.

By the third day of the attack, hundreds had already died. City hospitals, and there were many, started closing their doors to new admissions; their staffs already had more of the dead and dying than they could possibly handle. Twenty-three hospitals in all refused to take any more of the exposed.

City police and their squad cars were drafted to start carrying newly discovered dead bodies, many already in a state of decomposition, to local morgues. The backup of police cars bringing in the dead was so severe that filling out each body's paperwork often cost the officers an hour and a half -- precious time they
could have been using to find those who'd been exposed, but were still living. The magnitude of the crisis and its potential danger to the living became apparent when the mayor quietly offered anyone on parole a full pardon -- in exchange for helping to dispose of the bodies.
Finally, the city's morgue, one of the largest in the nation, suddenly found itself out of room for the dead. In order to store those bodies still awaiting death certificates, the city morgue was forced to rent refrigerated
meat trailers.

At that point, the city's Chief Medical Examiner decided that enough was enough. Edmund Donoghue informed the mayor that it was time to call a state of emergency. Further, he warned, the public should immediately be informed; everyone's aid should be enlisted in finding the victims and getting them help before it
was too late. But, although 400 people had died by then, the mayor rejected Donoghue's advice. Instead, he demanded a statement characterizing these deaths as stemming from natural causes -- at the same time prohibiting the Medical Examiner from releasing any exact numbers to the press.

With that, the media finally got hold of the story. However, instead of alerting readers and viewers to the tragedy taking place in their midst, the media took sides politically about whether the mayor or the medical examiner was right. And that very day, another 100 Americans died.

And then, in the middle of all this death, much of the city lost power, complicating matters and
blocking rescues even more. At this point, the Centers for Disease Control got involved to sort things out. It didn't take them long to make their decision: The Medical Examiner had been right. The mayor, however, purportedly to "avoid alarming the population at large," had engaged in a cover-up of serious proportions.

At that moment, a bit of almost hysterically comic relief was briefly introduced: Mary Gade, head of that state's environmental protection agency, issued a report that praised the local air quality.

This city had paramedics working 28-hour shifts, hospitals refusing to take any more of the stricken, and a Medical Examiner screaming for disclosure and help. Unfortunately, it also had a mayor demanding that any reports call a staggering number of deaths "natural," while forbidding the examiner to disclose the actual
number of those killed. And all the while, almost every day, another 100 expectant fathers, loving mothers,bright sons and baby daughters died.

It is believed that from July 12th to the 19th, 739 individuals died in this city. And the count was probably higher, all told; according to Dr. Jane Dematte of Michael Reese Hospital, many of her patients were still dying from the event's effects weeks later. Such drawn-out deaths were not included in the official final
count. By the end of that one week, however, so many people had died that the mass grave in which the city hastily buried them measured 160 feet long by 10 feet wide.

Now: Do you know the city, do you know the event, and do you know the year?

There is an Obama connection in all this. Want to take a guess before I come back and post the rest of the story?


Ok, now for the rest... (Below threshold)
Larry:


Ok, now for the rest of the story.
_________________

The city was Chicago, and the year was 1995.

Seven hundred and thirty-nine people dead in seven days, many buried in a mass grave, and it all took place just seven years ago. And more than likely, you've never heard a thing about it. But, I hear you asking, what caused these deaths? What on earth can anybody be exposed to that starts breaking your body down in just 48 hours? A simple heat wave, that's what.

Seven hundred thirty-nine dead in seven days, in just one American city. It makes you think that this West Nile Virus may have been just a tad overblown.

And the mayor who lied about the facts and kept important information from citizens when it might have saved many lives? The same mayor who would win re-election that year, by an overwhelming majority: None other than Richard M. Daley. That's the same mayor who, ironically, headed the U.S. Conference of Mayors the very next year. And the year after that, 1997, Daley was named Municipal Leader of the Year by American City and County magazine, a Public Official of the Year by Governing magazine and Politician ofthe Year by Library Journal.

Some heroes emerge, in looking back on this story. The paramedics themselves, the police officers ferrying the dead, and the city's medical workers must have gone through hell, knowing that they could expect no help to provide care for the unending onslaught of the dead and dying. And their leaders did their best; Robert Scates, head of the city's paramedics, recognized the crisis on day two and begged for help, but was denied. Edmund Donoghue, the city's Chief Medical Examiner, confronted the mayor with the crisis and was ordered to hush it up.

But the reality that was suppressed then is some history we might do well to remember. Seven years ago a heat wave hit Chicago; it lasted only one week, but on just the second day paramedics were going 28 hours without returning to their stations. By the third day 18 hospitals had closed their doors to all new admissions. The city's morgue finally had to rent refrigerated trucks to store the dead. And all this resulted from a crisis that struck and killed fewer than 1,000 people: officially, only 739 people died in seven days.

Now, I'm not a Mensa member, but if something that our technology can so easily deal with causes that much of a meltdown in a city's emergency system, how are we to believe that we can ever be prepared to cope with the results of a chemical or biological attack?

What's worse, if it happened, would anyone ever tell us? After all, Chicago has kept this secret for seven years. And that was far from the only time this has happened: 1,250 people died in the heat wave of 1980. And during one week in 1963, more people died in America than were killed during the attack of September 11th: four thousand, six hundred and fifty.

So we've known it could happen. We installed the emergency crews because we knew it would happen again -- and still, it took Chicago by surprise. And then the city was able to bury the facts so that no one knew - no one learned any lessons from Chicago, unless it was how effective a communication blackout can be.

Nature, at least in terms of fatalities, would seem to have been a bigger threat to our citizens than terrorism.

We've all seen horrifying images of certain natural disasters' destruction in the news. Nature's impact on our social systems, however, hasn't been much in the spotlight; so perhaps it's not surprising that the nation hasn't yet learned how to deal with the aftermath of natural emergencies. On the other hand, it's hardly reassuring to reflect that the first thing that came to one city leader's mind when crisis struck was pardoning criminals -- if they would help him to dispose of the silent dead, silently.

[that was an extract from Ed Wallace's "Backside of Amercian History."}

Now what was Obama doing in 1995? How many of those who died did not have air cooling in their homes? How many were black and/or poor.

And what did Obama have to say about it?

One thing is for sure, Obama was making a lot of noise at the time about his first book. And of course, Thomas Ayers was the CEO of ConEd, the power company.

It should be obvious. Here was a real tragedy. People died. There was a coverup. They died from the heat. There was a power failure during the worst of the heat. Most who died were from the minority and poor demographic.

Hyde Park was not one of the hard hit areas.

So what did Newly minted State Senator Barack H. Obama do about the scandal? That should have been obvious from the story; Obama did exactly nothing. Oh, wait, he did do something. Google Obama 1995 and see how he spent his summer. Just to save you the time, he promoted his book.

And do keep in mind that traditional media was mute on the subject. Perhaps it was the influence of Thomas Ayers or Richard Daley.

From a net worth of $800,000 to over $8 million since he's been in the senate, earning what per year and only worked 143 days for that. He understands how to crook the system and screw America by taking $600 million from his friends the terrorists/family members and dictators (mostly one and the same) of the world. If anyone is stupid enough to think he collected that amount of money from the 'poor' blacks in this country I have some land to sell them. You can view it in about 30 days when the lake drops a few more feet. Have to hurry though, it goes back under water in Jan. If the welfare system, which 90% of the blacks ride, is paying that well there should be some massive cuts.
