Guess Who is the Unemployed Politician?

leave a comment »


This progenitor of TARP and an all around machiavellian sfacime will find himself unemployed soon enough. I am sure his tin cup wall street cronies will find him a cushy job at some hedge fund sure enough, but to see him go is a reward enough.

Who is acting in OUR best interests? Bush et al are the judas goats

leave a comment »


Currently, the White House and Congress are working together to solve the financial crisis we are in because of the mortgage debacle. More time has been spent on policy that is based on politics, meaning, how can the politicians get the most benefit out of whatever they do in terms of popularity, votes, and ultimately money and of course power. The Vampiress Bella Pelosi, Howdy Doody George Bush and Uncle Fester Paulson are playing the part of the Judas Goat, leading us to the metaphorical slaughterhouse of socialism. It is no different than Al Gore preaching the world is coming to an end because of man caused global warming. He too is the Judas Goat that wants to lead us into the depths of socialism and global government. These characters are not acting in our best interests, they are not representing the American people in good faith, and they certainly do not have the fortitude to do what is right if they know what that is. A lot of people feel that the average american is getting screwed because the banks are getting bailed out and citizens are not, as with Wall Street vis a vis Mail Street. This is off the mark. People that are irresponsible, need to be accountable, and they have to demonstrate some form of trust. Just as someone seeks forgiveness and does not demonstrate true reconciliation through acknowledgment of their sins and living in way that shows they are not making those same mistakes, If banks and individuals continually have their hand out and make the decisions and mistakes we have witnessed time and time again, then we must not bail them out. Wall Street has not earned our trust, individuals that are looking for a hand out have not earned our trust and the politicians have not earned our trust, not only by their actions here in writing a check that our collective asses will have to cover, but in creating regulation and legislation that helped bring this about. None of the bad actors here are stepping forward with any type of mea culpa, and earnestness in making it right. They just want to make it look like they are doing something, take credit for it and leave us the bill. This just sucks. Thank you comrades Bush, Pelosi, Paulson et al. Please go to central committee and pick up your red berets.

The New Socialist Dictatorship

with 2 comments

There is a new socialist dictator and his name is Henry Paulson. The secretary treasurer is behind the bank bailouts, which will raise the national debt and saddle americans in order to pay for the golden parachutes and lifestyles of the plutocrats that run the financial institutions that are failing. Henry Paulson was head of Goldman Sachs and appears to be protecting his own at our expense. We now hear that he wants to extend the bailouts to foreign banks that have operations in this country. This dictator will saddle us potentially with 1 trillion in debt, and yet, he has to call Warren Buffet for advice, a robber baron that makes his bones in downturns and through other people’s misfortunes, not to mention it is unethical if not illegal for Paulson to be discussing what is in essence insider information. Didn’t Martha Stewart go to jail over that? To add insult to injury, Paulson is pushing congress to pass this buyout without knowing what it entails and the consequences. To understand how much power this guy wants, a quote from the bailout bill: “Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency”…“The Secretary’s authority to purchase mortgage-related assets under this Act shall be limited to $700,000,000,000 outstanding at any one time.” There is an old saying that the fish stinks from the head and this one does. These plutocrats have screwed up with the subprime debacle. Bailing them out is analogous to a co-dependent parent or spouse that keeps bailing out, covering for and making excuses for a spouse or child that has a bad drug problem and commits crimes. Right now we are at a point where tough love is called for, and it’s times for the banks to eat the shit sandwich. The problem is we have a new dictator in Henry Paulson that wants to bail out his buddies. Bush is showing poor leadership in backing this ill conceived plan. What do you think? Paulson is not an elected official, and Bush is a lame duck, but their plan will affect us for decades to come. Who do you blame? We have an election coming up and Barack Obama’s solution is more regulation and bureaucracies, definitely a step in the wrong direction. Right now I am waiting to hear from John McCain and the silence is deafening.

The Week in Review

leave a comment »

Well, socialists have been quite busy this week bailing out financial institutions and now we have Paulson, The secretary of the infinitely stupid, calling for a $700 Billion bailout package. If that isn’t good enough, the bald headed Keynesian pillow biter wants to bail out foreign banks that have operations in the US. Enough. I wonder why the banks get bailed out, but the DMFs that borrowed beyond their means do not? Not that I believe either side should be bailed out, but if it is our money, shouldn’t we at least benefit directly by this latest exercise in corporate welfare? I also find it highly problematic that Paulson calls Warren Buffet for advice. Wouldn’t that be giving a trader inside information? The incestuous relationship between the Federal Reserve, the treasury and financial industry should be enough to send anyone screaming from the room.

Caryn Elaine Johnson or Whoopi Goldberg is still an idiot. I still haven’t hear or seen apostasy on her part, and I imagine none will be forthcoming. If ignorance is bliss, then she must be the happiest person in the world.

All the eco-terrorists and other neo-com lemmings must be ecstatic about the CERN collider being shutdown for repairs. I am quite certain they will be happy that the Gluon footprint will not increase in the short term. It seems a transformer needed work. These devices use a lot of energy you know.

Everyone seems to be waiting for Joe Biden to stick his foot in his mouth again. We didn’t have to wait long, as referenced by his latest speech in Virginia. I wonder if Joe will ever find his coal-mining ancestors.

What’s all the hubbub with HRC, Saracuda, and the Stop Iran Rally? It seems that HRC didn’t want to share the stage with Palin, and in an effort to actually try to help Obama, not only pulled out of the rally, but had the organizers disinvite Palin, and HRC & Co. gave them cover with three lawyers writing letters on how having only one side represented may interfere with their tax exempt status. What rubbish. Score one for Palin with the Jewish community on this one.

Charles Rangel, the Democrat representative from Harlem seems to be having tax issues. It seems that in addition to owning four apartments in Manhattan, at least two of which are rent controlled, it seems the chairman of the ways and means committee failed to report income. Can you imagine renting an apartment in Manhattan for less than $500 a month? If not, Ask Charlie.

The story that seems to be lying low right now is the affects of hurricane Ike. Many people in Houston are still without power and other utilities. This does not seem to be getting the same play as Katrina. One reason is that Texas is a red state. There is no political capital there for Obama and his de facto public relations firm, the lamestream media.

Lastly, I will be changing the programming of my blog to some extent. I will be publishing commentary on a regular basis, MWF, and now I will produce a podcast that will be published every Sunday. To all of those who have supported my blog by reading it, I give my eternal thanks. The best is yet to come.

Thank you as always for reading this blog.
