Thank god for Dennis Freaking Kucinich. As I watch with slack jawed bewilderment as Congress rewards "crooks, speculators, and greed hounds" [quote from Ralph Nader] rather than addressing the problem of the crisis in the form of the underlying mortgage issues. All the while I am forced to listen to idiots talking about why this bill violates "free market principles" as if the free market is god and didn't help get us into this mess.
Then there is Dennis Kucinich the only one making sense in this whole kettle of fish. This was the Democrats time to shine. This was a simple majority vote, and they have the majority. That's it. It's that simple. IT IS THAT SIMPLE. The Democrats should have asked themselves, "How can we, right here right now, kill Reaganomics and go back to the New Deal?" in other words, "How do we fix the economy?" And they concluded that the best way to do this was to pass GEORGE BUSH'S BILL! To more or less give $700 Billion to ONE GUY, allow golden parachutes to those that drove these companies into the ground, and give the government "oversight" in the sense that we can occasionally, when allowed, peak over the edge of the ledger right before the secretary of the treasury shuts the book and leaves the room.
Obama has received from Goldman Sach's alone, $583,000 during his presidential run; McCain $178,000 [Ralph Nader's figures]. Does anyone really expect any kind of due diligence on oversight? Does anyone really think the people funding the overseers will ever be put under the microscope? I don't care if you are an Obaminion or a McCanaanite, a Democrat or Republican, call the presidential candidates along with your Senators and your Representatives. Demand they all GIVE THAT MONEY BACK. It's time to take back the Corporate States of America.
God Bless Dennis Kucinich, Ralph Nader, the truth speakers, the brave, the righteous, the uncorrupted.
