More proof that Barack Obama and his treasury secretary Tim Geithner are in bed with AIG.
Two weeks ago Barack Obama stood before America and feigned outrage at AIG for doling out millions in bonuses to executives after accepting billions in federal aide. Later it was revealed that Obama and Geithner knew about the AIG bonuses even before blessing AIG with another $30 billion of your tax dollars last month.
Now, according to CNN: One of the people named to Obama’s newly formed Task Force on Tax Reform is a member of the AIG board of directors. We’re not exactly sure if Obama’s task force will accomplish much of anything. But we are sure that more of your tax dollars will disappear into it.
If Barack Obama, aka George Bush II, gets his way, your laptop can be searched for illegally downloaded mp3s or movies the next time you pass through airport security. Even if you don’t have illegally downloaded files on your machine, your hard drive can still be searched anyway. Is this the Change you were hoping for? This government sanctioned invasion of your privacy will add another one or two hours to the already lengthy security lines in airports. So make sure you get to the airport at least 4 hours prior to your departure time.
The Obama Administration is currently negotiating the ACTA Agreement with several international partners.
The proposed agreement would empower security officials at airports and other international borders to conduct random… searches of laptops, MP3 players, and cellular phones for illegally downloaded or “ripped” music and movies.

As you know, rap artist T.I. was sentenced this morning to 366 days in federal prison. But the good news is he won’t be required to report to prison until May 19 at the earliest. According to T.I., prior commitments prevented him from reporting earlier than May 19.
