    Dalai Lama Advice that was sent to the White House,

    Obama White House, STAFFERS please let this important information rise to Barack and Chief Of Staff Rahm Emanuel. China is very upset~~~WONDERFUL!! China is always upset when truth is revealed. China's REAL reason for forced settlement, and take over of Tibet is only one word COPPER, free cooper when you steal it. A BBC reporter quoted sources, the mountains of Tibet are very high grade cooper ore. China "take-over" uses locals as very cheap labor, nearly free cooper, for the corrupt bastards. PLEASE meet with the Dalli Lama, treat him like a head of state, he is. All documentaries on Tibet and the D.L. show him as mentally brilliant, with great wisdom!! I met him once!! NO CHINA "DEALS" we will talk with anyone on the planet we wish to!! China bullies no one in the FREE WORLD~~stand very tough!!! This is your golden opportunity to show the world the truth, and prove WE RUN OUR AFFAIRS~~PERIOD!!

    Here is my take on the people who are telling governement to stay out of their life:

    If you do not want government involvement in your life, don't use the streets, don't use the public schools, don't use the post office, and this one is really important...wait for it...DON'T TAKE MEDICARE! I think I will not watch the news for a while. Too annoying to hear people rant about nationalized this and that.

    If what gov Patterson said is true, then it sounds like it is typical politics. It sounds like someone is trying to hurt his credibility. It's probably one of his opponents supporters starting those rumors. As for Joe Jackson, he must know something that the people don't know, because he talking about conspiracy. But I think he was right that the charge should've been more serious. The doctor should've got charged with murder. Michael Jackson R.I.P.
