On-Line Family from Susan Mangatal and
all of us at Arious Entertainment -
week was a distressing, and an important one for all of us here in
Our taxes were due on Wednesday, April 15, 2009.
all the hardships many of us are undergoing due to the horrific
economy, scores of us really didn't want to think about these
“freaking” taxes, much less file them. However, as it
has always been...WE MUST FILE!
year I made it on time, and the outcome of mine simply did not
leave a smile on my face, just an aching head. Of course,
this left me thinking about our "crooked" government
officials, who for years HAVE NOT been paying their taxes.
you may know, about 2 months or so ago it seemed everyone
President Barack Obama nominated for positions in his
cabinet/administration had not paid their taxes (for
many years.) For example, it has been reported that
President Obama’s nominee to head his Health and Human Services
Department (Tom Daschle) somehow missed $128,000 in taxes and
another $15,000 in penalties and fees, along with a few others who
withdrew their nominations due to their tax evasions and
importantly, the head of President Obama’s Treasury Department
Timothy Geithner admitted to not paying his taxes for a number of
years; which was “brought to light” as a result of his
appointment hearings with the Senate Finance Committee.
Imagine a known tax cheater/evader is the head of America’s Treasury Department and whose
responsibility is to overseas the Internal Revenue
Service. Mr. Geithner after claiming the reason for not
paying his taxes was an oversight practically received a "pat
on the back," welcomes, hand shakes, and was allowed to pay the thousands he owed. Most importantly,
he was appointed and allowed to become the head of one of America’s significant and
influencial job -- running the Treasury
you believe that these government officials, the people we voted
to represent us; the people who write and administer laws; the
people who have access to great tax advice; the people who earn
enough and certainly can afford to pay taxes - have been breaking
the tax laws without a care in the world. They are truly
hypocrites and what many of them have been doing is fundamentally
wrong! And guess what…they are the same ones who persecute
Americans for not paying their taxes. How truly
appalling…don’t you agree?
the folks who make up the government are extremely corrupt and
greedy. They obviously get away with all their wrong doings and continue
writing and administering our laws, while the citizens (poor or
rich) suffer tremendously and is jailed for tax
evasion/non-payment…what a shame!
be quite honest, I was tempted to join the many who attended TEA
parties that took place all across America
on Tax Day (Taxes Enough Already Movement). Americans
angry over taxes and the economy attend anti-tax “tea
parties” around the country on Tax Day, Wednesday, April 15th.
Rallies used the dreaded April 15 – the U.S. deadline to file
income taxes as a hook to vent about government spending and
corporate bailouts in a homage to the Boston Tea Party. The
Tea parties were promoted by FreedomWorks, a conservative
nonprofit advocacy group based in Washington DC
and led by former Republican House Majority Leader Dick Armey of Texas
who is now a lobbyist. This organization is said to have
been originated through online social networking sites such as
Facebook and Twitter and was exposed exclusively through Fox News.
As much as I have been
"stressing" and "tripping" about this issue,
you can imagine I came to my senses quickly after realizing that
in addition to protesting against taxes, many who are involved with these TEA Parties are not happy with
President Obama and his policies and have found a way to shout
their displeasure regarding him, his policies and all that he has
been doing. It is built on too much hate especially
for the current administration, so I must
find another way to express my disgust about this entire tax
On a more happier note, I
am pleased to share with you the following
This weekend will be
historical and exciting for my country Trinidad, because The 5th
of The Americas will be held in
Trinidad and Tobago
beginning on April 17th through the 19th.
The Summit of The Americas
brings together the leaders, Presidents, Heads of State and
Government of the Western Hemisphere (all countries of the
Americas) to discuss common concerns, seek solutions and develop a
shared vision for their future development of the region, be it
economic, social or political. The major summit taking place
in Port of Spain T&T will focus on developing feasible solutions to
the challenges facing the Hemisphere and delivering tangible and
measurable outcomes for all citizens.
Barack Obama, his wife First Lady Michelle, Secretary of State
Hilary Clinton, and a few others from his Administration will be
in Trinidad for the Summit. This is President Obama’s first opportunity to address
33 other Heads of State from the Americas, and it is an important
moment for him to set the tone of his administration’s policy
toward the region as well as to re-engage with the region; which
is an important factor that needs to be mended due to the void
created by the Bush Administration (who left the US relations with
the countries of the region in a disastrous condition.)
Additionally, President Obama will have the opportunity to address
the leaders of Latin America directly while offering his vision on
US Latin America relations to the world.
In past summits progress
was made which provided a solid basis for developing a
focused, integrated and results oriented Inter-American Agenda
that encouraged the effective engagement of civil society, the
private sector, indigenous peoples, afro-descendants, woman, youth
and regional institutions in the Summit Process.
of the Americas theme is: “Securing Our Citizens’ Future by
Promoting Human Prosperity, Energy, Security and Environmental
The main objective of the Summit is: a
commitment to hemispheric integration and collective
responsibility designed utilizing a process to address the
problems and challenges that the Americas face in order to jointly
seek solutions that will improve the quality of life of the
citizens of the Americas along with their security and economic
As you can imagine my family in Trinidad are
really thrilled that President Obama will be in the country this
weekend. While talking to my Mom over the Easter Holiday,
she talked a lot about the preparations taking place in the
country. The increased military personnel from many
different countries, the ships that are docked in the waters
around the country, and even the craziness that is taking place
with the picking up of the homeless folks from the streets and
getting the place "squeaky" clean for this important
It was so funny when my brother told me he
wished I would hitch a ride on Air Force One and travel home with
the President so I can visit him, his wife and his girls. I
explained to him that his wish will not come true, and I
absolutely didn't have it like that here in America. LOL!
Read President Barack Obama's Letter regarding
the Summit in Trinidad.
US PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
AS WE APPROACH the Summit Of The Americas, our hemisphere
is faced with a clear choice.
We can overcome our shared challenges with a sense of
common purpose, or we can stay mired in the old debates of
For the sake of all our people, we must choose the future.
Too often, the United States has not pursued and sustained
engagement with our neighbors. We have been too easily
distracted by other priorities, and have failed to see
that our own progress is tied directly to progress
throughout the Americas.
My administration is committed to renewing and sustaining
a broader partnership between the United States and the
hemisphere on behalf of our common prosperity and our
We have already begun to move in a new direction.
This week, we amended a Cuba policy that has failed for
decades to advance liberty or opportunity for the Cuban
people. In particular, the refusal to allow
Cuban-Americans to visit or provide resources to their
families on the island made no sense - particularly after
years of economic hardship in Cuba, and the devastating
hurricanes that took place last year.
Now, that policy has changed.
The United States-Cuba relationship is one example of a
debate in the Americas that is too often dragged back to
the 20th century. To confront our economic crisis, we
don't need a debate about whether to have a rigid,
state-run economy or unbridled and unregulated capitalism
- we need pragmatic and responsible action that advances
our common prosperity.
To combat lawlessness and violence,
we don't need a debate about whether to blame right-wing
paramilitaries or left-wing insurgents - we need practical
cooperation to expand our common security.
That is why leaders from Santiago to Brasilia to Mexico
City are focused on a renewed partnership of the Americas
that makes progress on fundamental issues like economic
recovery, energy, and security.
The global economic crisis has hit the Americas hard,
particularly our most vulnerable populations.
Years of progress in combating poverty and inequality
hangs in the balance. The United States is working to
advance prosperity in the hemisphere by jumpstarting our
In doing so, we will help spur trade,
investment, remittances, and tourism that provides a
broader base for prosperity in the hemisphere.
Collective action. We also need collective action.
At the G-20 Summit, the United States pledged to seek
nearly half a billion dollars in immediate assistance for vulnerable
populations, while working with G-20 partners to set aside
substantial resources to help countries through difficult
We have called upon the
Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to maximize lending
to restart the flow of credit, and stand ready to examine
the needs and capacity of the IDB going forward.
And we are working to put in place 21st century rules of
the road to prevent the abuses that caused the current
While we confront this crisis, we
must build a new foundation for long-term prosperity.
Our hemisphere has bountiful natural resources that could
make renewable energy plentiful and sustainable, while
creating jobs for our people.
In the process, we can confront climate change that
threatens rising sea levels in the Caribbean, diminishing
glaciers in the Andes, and powerful storms on the Gulf
Coast of the United States. That is why I look forward to
pursuing a new Energy and Climate Partnership of the
Americas that will help us learn from one another, share
technologies, leverage investment, and maximize our
Just as we advance our common prosperity, we must advance
our common security. The United States will strongly
support respect for the rule of law, better law
enforcement, and stronger judicial institutions.
Security must be advanced through our commitment to
partner with those who are courageously battling drug
cartels, gangs and other criminal networks throughout the
And our efforts start at home. By reducing demand for
drugs and curtailing the illegal flow of weapons and bulk
cash south across our border, we can advance security in
the United States and beyond.
And going forward, we will sustain a lasting dialogue in
the hemisphere to ensure that we are building on best
practices, adapting to new threats, and coordinating our
Finally, the summit gives every democratically-
elected leader in the Americas the opportunity to reaffirm
our shared values.
Each of our countries has pursued its own democratic
journey, but we must be joined together in our commitment
to liberty, equality, and human rights.
That is why I look forward to the day when every country
in the hemisphere can take its seat at the table
consistent with the Inter-American Democratic Charter.
And just as the United States seeks that goal in reaching
out to the Cuban people, we expect all of our friends in
the hemisphere to join together in supporting liberty,
equality, and human rights for all Cubans.
This summit offers the opportunity of a new beginning.
Advancing prosperity, security and liberty for the people
of the Americas depends upon 21st century partnerships,
freed from the posturing of the past. That is the
leadership and partnership that the United States stands
ready to provide.

Earth Day - April 22nd is a day designed to inspire
awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment -- an annual U.S. celebration of the
environment and a time for Americans to assess the work still
needed to protect the natural gifts of our planet. Earth Day
is a time to celebrate gains we have made and create new visions
to accelerate environmental progress. Earth Day is a time
to unite around new actions. Earth Day and every day
is a time to act to protect our planet.
Earth Day has
no central organizing force behind it, though several
nongovernmental organizations work to keep track of the thousands
of local events in schools and parks that mark the day. It affirms
that environmental awareness is part of the country's
consciousness and that the idea of protecting the environment --
once the province of a few conservationists -- has moved from the
extreme to the mainstream of American thought.
Earth Day 2009, will mark the beginning of The
Green Generation CampaignTM. Earth Day 2009
must be a day of action and civic participation, to defend The
Green GenerationTM’s core principles:
Earth Day Network will commemorate Earth Day 2009 in Washington
DC at the National Mall with a large-scale event. On April
19th from noon to 6pm, like in years past, hundreds of
thousands of people will take Metrobus, Metrorail, walk, and bike
to the heart of the nation’s capital to witness the official
launch of The
Green GenerationTM and show their support for
responsible, brave environmental policy that helps us face the
challenges ahead. Earth Day will bring together families, adults
of all ages, civic leaders, entertainers and other community
members to celebrate Earth Day and share a common commitment to
make greener life choices and stem the tide of climate change.
The event will feature top talent The Flaming Lips, Moe., Los
Lobos and Dj. Spooky. Confirmed speakers and celebrities include:
EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, Chevy Chase, Matthew Modine,
Representative Edward Markey, Majora Carter, Reverend Yearwood of
The Hip Hop Caucus and Steve Thomas, former host of This Old
The event includes an Eco-Roadshow with exhibits from
non-profits, companies striving to go green, government agencies
and foreign embassies. Exhibitors will be located in the main
event area, between 4th and 7th streets on the National Mall, and
also on the corner of Maryland and Independence avenues, right by
the Museum of the American Indian
