What do you want to ask me? – President Barack Obama

The White House, Washington
 

 

Good afternoon,

Today, I was in Michigan. Yesterday, it was Colorado and Nevada. Before that, it was Iowa and Arizona. The day after I delivered my State of the Union Address to Congress, I took off to connect with ordinary Americans around the country, talk more about our Blueprint for an America Built to Last, and get some feedback.

That’s why I’m writing you.

On Monday we’re going to do something a little different. At 5:30 p.m. ET, I’ll walk into the Roosevelt Room across the hall from the Oval Office, take a seat, and kick-off the first-ever completely virtual town hall from the White House.

All week, people have been voting on questions and submitting their own, and a few of them will join me for a live chat.

What do you want to ask me?

This is going to be an exciting way to talk about the steps that we need to take together at this make-or-break moment for the middle class.

We have to foster a new era for American manufacturing — rewarding companies for keeping jobs here at home and eliminating tax breaks for those who ship jobs overseas. We have to invest in homegrown energy in the United States — starting with an all-out, all-of-the-above energy strategy that’s cleaner, cheaper, and full of new jobs. We have to build an economy that works for everyone — where every hard working American gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and the rules are the same from top to bottom.

I’m ready to get started, but I know you have questions and ideas for ways to help. So let’s hear them:

Thanks,

President Barack Obama

Coming soon to a tire store near you

January 22, 2012


Yes, those are ‘spoke’ like connections to the inner part of the tire from the outside tread ‘wrap!’ The next picture shows how odd it looks in motion…

Makes you wonder how the ride feels doesn’t it?

These tires are airless and are scheduled to be out on the market very soon.
The bad news for law enforcement is that spike strips will not work on these.
Just think of the impact on existing technology:
A. no more air valves…
B. no more air compressors at gas stations…
C. no more repair kits…
D. no more flats…
These are actual pictures taken at the South Carolina plant of Michelin.

UTILITIES IN CAHOOTS TO OVERWHELM CONSUMER ADVOCATES: THIS IS WHAT WE’RE UP AGAINST

Dear Friend,

PSC Chairman Kevin Gunn thinks that Ameren Missouri and Kansas City Power & Light may be coordinating rate case filings in order to overwhelm consumer advocates and is launching an investigation.

“I have some concern over the possibility that rate cases have been timed to overwhelm the resources of the commission staff, the office of Public Counsel and any other intervener,” Gunn said in letters to Ameren and KCP&L Attorneys. “That would be especially troublesome if there was evidence of communication between the utilities, or internal utility communications, to file rate cases closely together.”

“Gunn has vowed to make sure the state’s investor-owned utilities aren’t taking advantage of a weakened consumer advocate. Regardless of the outcome of the inquiry, he said, ‘I want to make it clear that we’re paying attention.’”

This kind of action is what we’re up against.  We need your help to make sure that the Public Service Commission stands up for consumers.  Contact the PSC to encourage them to investigate these utility companies closely and then share this message with a friend.

We need your help to fight back!

Sincerely,

The FERAF Team

With corporate and special interests already spending millions of dollars in this year’s presidential race, fair and honest elections are more important than ever.  Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is working towards that goal.

I told President Obama it’s time to nominate new commissioners to the Federal Election Commission.

Will You Support Call Center Jobs?

Dear Daniel,

Thank you for writing Congress supporting the Call Center Bill! Since I emailed on Monday, over 12,000 people have sent messages to their members of Congress asking them to support the Bill.

Now, to demonstrate the strength of our support, we’re planning to start delivering the messages to Congress by hand next Tuesday. We’ve set a target of 25,000 messages, but we won’t reach that target unless we get some help to spread the message far and wide.

So here’s what you can do: will you forward this link to your friends and family so that they can support call center workers too? www.cwa-union.org/call_center

Members of Congress are telling us that they want to know that their constituents support the bill before they take a stand, so getting your friends and family to send a message will make a real difference.

Please send this link to your friends and family to stop American call center jobs from being shipped overseas.

p.s. Both Democrats and Republicans have shown interest in supporting this bill, so please let your friends know no matter who their members of Congress are!
