One Nation Rally 10-2-10 Photos

Find more photos like this on Living Legacy Journal

A few photos for those who couldn't make it. This was a spectacularly important event. I was highly disappointed in the lack of media on-air coverage. There were plenty of news trucks but few decided to air the event on prime time news. The only journalist that gave it proper exposure was Ed Shultz of MSNBC. This is one of those events…

The Official White House Web Site

If you haven't gone to this site you are missing a wealth of very well presented information.

They may also be influenced by other sources that don't serve the interest of the American people at large but only a select few (extremely wealthy and powerful). I know that this site is designed to disseminate the Obama Administrations… Continue
