Subject: WATCH IMMEDIATELY BEFORE IT IS DELETED....


Illegal Obama "Propped Up" By Congress!
If you never watch another video, watch this one,
this proves the Democrats(And some Republicans)
know Obama is not an American and is serving illegally
and unconstitutionally and the efforts they made are
recorded in the Congressional Record, attempting to
change the Constitution so he could serve legally.

EVERYONE who cares about and loves this
Constitutional Republic absolutely MUST watch and
forward this video!!!!!! This one must go viral.
I won't be surprised when the people of this country
begin calling for an Impeachment.
This guy and his cronies have been intentionally
deceiving the American public and his friends in
Congress have been propping him up..
Where are our elected representatives,
especially the Tea Party candidates?

Obama's Hidden Past



Quote:
Uploaded by skyspeedr on Apr 15, 2011


Information about Obama's hidden past is finally coming out due to the diligent research of www.citizens4freedom.com and Donald Trump's investigation into Obama (And it's NOT about the birth certificate issue.). This video, recorded from The Power Hour radio show by Joyce Riley, exposes the FACTS they have uncovered about Obama's past that may be surprising, even shocking, to some. Manipulation of political figures by the ruling elite is nothing new. In fact it's the documented history of how the British Empire (the mercantile elite class of Britain) was able to control the world (and still do). Knowing information like this and keeping it suppressed while financing them to high political office is how the controlling elite of the world are able to completely control the puppet politicians in America and deceive all but the most astute studiers of history.



Obama's CIA Connection

Wayne Madsen, a Washington, D.C.-based author, columnist, and investigative journalist specializing in intelligence and international affairs, has received word from a source in a foreign intelligence agency allied with the United States that there has been talk by some within the Obama White House that he is under threat. What particular stories have inflamed the White House are not known but the warning conveyed by the source, who has connections within the White House, was stark in its directness: "They want to kill you." Wayne Madsen has recently spent months tracking down the Mafia and CIA connections of Barrack Obama and appeared on the Alex Jones Radio Show on April 18th to talk about them before leaving the US due to the threats on his life

From an e-mail......didn't check snopes, but posted
as received........

Here's is another hoax thrust upon the American people by the tree huggers, the EPA, and the environmentalist.

Cost to operate a Chevy Volt


Eric Bolling (Fox Business Channel's Follow the Money) test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors.


For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.
Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9 gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles. It will take you 4 1/2 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph.


According to General Motors, the Volt battery hold 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery on 120 volts and 4 1/2 hours on 220, cost is the same.


The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity.


I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh.


16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery.


$18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery.


Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine only that gets 32 mpg.


$3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile.


The gasoline powered car cost about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000.


So GM and the federal government wants us to pay 3 times as much for a car that costs more than 7 time as much to run and takes 3 times as long to drive across country.


REALLY?


The battery pack warranty is for 8 yrs. The cost to replace it at todays cost is $8,000 it is estimated that in 8 yrs the cost will be $12,000 to $15,000 and the system will be outdated or obsolete.

Looks like flawed mathematics on the reporters part. Still, the battery cost scares me from ever getting one of those overpriced golf carts.

Yeah, and you would have to drive it at least a couple of hundred of thousands of miles to break even on the extra $20k spent on it. (assuming it saves you the 10 cents a mile or whatever it is....and doesn't cost more to replace the battery)

At current gasoline and electric prices, and assuming the economy numbers given by this obviously biased report (something the snopes report didn't fully rebut) you would be correct. However, gasoline prices are extremely volatile, and electric is very stable. Resale value on hybrids is exceptionally high. The economy numbers from other sources suggest a reasonable electric-only range of 35 miles, and gasoline-only economy of over 35mpg. It is most economical at or below the average person's driving profile, and would likely save money for about 60% of the population.

It wouldn't save me much money - I put in 100 to 250 miles at a time for work.

Going into a grocery store I overheard a couple of guys comparing their preppy green cars. The best mileage was 35mpg, I smiled inwardly as my 96 Prism has done 40mpg on trips and routinely does 34-36mpg. My investment less than $9K new.
