                  Congressman Phil Hare (IL District 17) and Congressman Bruce Braley (IA District 1) had a joint news conference in Moline IL on Friday March 27. The QC Rail Initiative hosted the event to celebrate the Quad Cities congressmen signing a letter to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood urging him to make the funding request for $22.7 million that will bring AmTrak service from Chicago to the Quad Cities. After the remarks and open questions both congressmen were asked if they were familiar with HR1207, aka Audit the Federal Reserve Bill introduced by Congressman Ron Paul (TX 14th Dist) currently with bi-partisan support. http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h1207/show In addition both Hare and Braley were asked their thoughts on the possibility of the US currency moving into a global currency. This question was asked in light of recent statements by Treasury Secretary Geithner that have supported a global currency move (stated to the Council on Foreign Relations http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0309/Geithner_open_to_China_proposal.html?showall ) and at a recent congressional hearing when asked by Congresswoman Bachmann (MI __ Dist) where he switched his position to not supporting the US joining a global currency. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9DgMG-_6Ls

                    Saturday May 30, 2009 - Sold out show at the Adler Theatre in Davenport, IA. The intro is the pre-party outside the Adler that was held that Saturday evening. The music of the live band for the pre-party Dead Roots is playing in the background. Great turn out for the pre-party and of course you can't do better than a sold out show at the Adler. The camera work is a bit shaky (did not have my tripod) but the sound is amazingly good for such a small handheld video camera. From the Reader's pre-concert coverage: It would be easy to accuse Brent Havens of exploiting two things: the fondness people have for some seminal rock bands, and symphonies' need to diversity their audiences. But his "The Music of" series - which matches a community symphony orchestra, a live traveling rock band, and classic songs - comes from a place of knowledge. Havens, who arranged the songs for orchestra and conducts, began with Led Zeppelin in 1996 and has expanded the repertoire to include Pink Floyd, The Doors, The Eagles, and Queen. The project has included more than 150 shows, two-thirds of which have been Led Zeppelin, Havens said. When he presents the Music of Led Zeppelin for the Quad City Symphony Orchestra's Spring Pops concert on May 30, it will be readily apparent that he knows the band.

                      Over 500 people gathered from Noon to 2pm in downtown Davenport, IA as part of the nationwide protests against excessive government spending and what many perceive as threats to citizens' rights as guaranteed by the US Constitution. This video includes seven interviews with protest attendees including an 11 year old whose sign read, "Even an 11 year old knows Obama is wrong." When asked what Obama was wrong about, the young person replied that taking money from those that work and giving it to those that do not work. One protester carrying a sign that read "Democrats are spending our grandchildren's future." He is asked what he would say to critics that point out the Republicans spend just as wildly when they were the majority. One protester claims that Obama is a puppet of the Bildeberg Group, Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations, and that Americans who voted for him have been "bamboozled."
