Stop The Bailout MADNESS!!
Posted by jeremiasx on October 2, 2008
Isn’t it just so refreshing that the Congress can’t find a way to balance the budget, OR fix America’s broken healthcare or education or infrastructure systems, but they CAN AND WILL meet in the middle of the night to give away trillions of dollars…erm, uh, respond to this “new” crisis no one saw coming which has been MANUFACTURED to collapse just in time for some sweeping government ‘reforms and legislation’ and continued BORROWING from foreign bankers…to keep our “robust economy” (Der FuhrerBush’s words, not mine) afloat for another week or so. *roflmao*
The farce continued today as our “elected representatives” convened in a special (partially closed) evening session to romance the American people into a royal SCREWING through a revised Senate bill that promises that yes, Americans will be insured up to $250,000 of their soon-to-be-worthless fiat currency in the vastly insolvent banks of the country and yes, if you have a mental illness (possibly due to your retirement vaporizing and after considering your prospects competing for that greeter position at Wal-Mart) you will get equally shitty coverage under the failed insurance system just like you had any other disease they already “cover.”
Just enough sweetening to almost make that turd sandwich slide right down before you consider the implications of piling another couple trillion dollars (after interest, since we pay interest on our OWN MONEY) is thrown into the FIRE…to burn away with the rest of the toxic mess. The American people are being misled on this deal, and kept in the blind. I couldn’t even find any links to this 400-plus page clusterfuck from any major outlets, unlike they provide for most other legislation. OpenCongress was down in the time after the bill passed, possibly as millions of other “interested 3rd parties” were either searching it out or perhaps well-paid hacks were DOS‘ing the shit out of it to keep “interested 3rd parties” HOODWINKED.
Behold, the American taxpayer in his current condition, tied up, caged, hoodwinked and stressed the FUCK out. And who makes up the cast of characters leading us down the primrose path further into Hell THIS time? Oh look, every major political figure on both sides of the spectrum! Pelosi, Reid, Boehner, McCain, Bush, OBAMA, BIDEN, etc. etc. Yes it’s a BIPARTISAN screwing this time, an orgy of ignorance and corruption, or possibly a lot of BOTH. The fearmongering drips from every major media outlet, and each tale of woe “if we fail to pass this” gets scarier and SCARIER. (Unlike the ‘Saw’ series..)
Harry Reid, in a performance that Jigsaw himself couldn’t have made appear more menacing, threatens America with the failure of an “unnamed major insurance company” which could only mean AIG in the frightened minds of municipal bondholders and pensioners worldwide. OMG. Can’t you see it?? WAKE UP AMERICA. It’s a MERCILESS shakedown!!!
”Give us the money, or we’ll shut down your state and local governments too!” Then the classic sales push, the TIME factor…we’re RUNNING out of TIME, OMFG we have to throw out the baby with the bathwater to put out this burning house! How quaint. These sons of bitches will stop at nothing to scare America into FALLING FOR THIS BULLSHIT. (AND YOU FALL FOR IT EVERY TIME)
This is our future we’re talking about people…do you want to use a wheelbarrow of money to buy a loaf of bread? If you support this thing, you obviously DO like the feel of a fat roll of WORTHLESS money in your pocket.
The saddest part…other than a few street protests most people will not take the time or make the effort to stop them. Most of you (if you even read this) will just sigh, shrug your shoulders and think to yourself that you didn’t have the ability to make any ‘real change’ anyhow, or you think (even worse) that your elected leadership has YOUR best interst at heart, the truly slumberous of you.
We’ve allowed them to do everything except anally rape our mothers while pouring sugar in our gas tank by this point. As disgusted as I am with the government, I’m THRICE as disgusted at the “CITIZENS.” Go back to sleep, sheep. Zzzzz.
PS: For those of you doing your part, or WILLING to do your part…thank God for you, bless you, and let us march on together toward the common cause of Liberty, Justice, and Equality.
PPS: If you want to do something…right now…email these reps.
