By Proxy "The Little Congress That Cried Wolf"

 
Poor Little Misfit Congress Christmas Story Sunday, December 16, 2007

UPDATE 10/7/08 - Why Paulson is Wrong Luigi Zingales Robert C. Mc Cormack Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance University of Chicago (listened to Mr. Zingales on Washington Journal CSPAN radio with Greta on the way to work Monday morning 10/6/08..."He makes sense out of the bail out scheme and I sure hope congress took notes when he testified yesterday.)

Nader Warns Against Mammoth Bailout Wednesday, September 24, 2008

When it was critically apparent for the House and Senate to exercise rational behavior, fiscal common sense, simple humanitarianism and sound practicality; the 110th Congress could not, would not and will not help their country men and women. The “bill” that finally passed the House, feels like treason. At the heart of the mess that Congress made, yes they did, is a big black cut out where the American citizen should be beating. The heart of this land, the American citizen is forced into Code Blue. DOA. My knee jerk reaction when Secretary of Treasury Paulson threatened complete annihilation of our system, was to be against his recommendation of a $700B infusion into the financial market. It smelled funny (not ha-ha) and it sounded bad. When bush took to the airwaves, I became vehemently against the bill. Bush has been bad for the US in every way possibly imagined and unfortunately unimagined, for an entire 8 long grueling years. McCain was completely wiped off my radar as a consideration for president. I don't like his politics, but then again I don't like the politics of the other guy either. McCain showed me something that I absolutely detest in any politician, he showed me a twisted maneuver of his own selfishness. Instead of coming to the people truthfully to explain the situation, he caused public confusion over his sudden “I'm suspending my campaign and won't do the scheduled debate with Sen. Obama” power wrestle. Weird, just plain weird! He caused a lot of grief for the people who worked tirelessly to put that debate together and caused many of us to scratch our head in disbelief. Airplanes Sen. McCain, we have airplanes that get us from A to B in a matter of minutes to a few hours around the nation!?! What was McCain thinking? Whatever it was, I don't want any of it in my next president. No way, No how, No McCain. Gov. Palin showed her face when she saw nothing wrong with VP Cheney’s self proclaimed mini kingdom of presidential and congressional power mongering. He probably has done much worse, but we won’t know all of the details until some truly brave patriots put Impeachment into the halls of Justice. When Governor Palin said she saw nothing to oppose, nothing about this two term VP who has adorned himself with the power of a co-presidency, It was at that moment she emerged as the NeoCon thoroughbred in the race. Dangerous to the frayed fibers of our US democracy after eight years of a bush reign. I agree with Sen. Biden that Cheney is the most dangerous VP in known history. Palin more than McCain strengthened the connection between McCain and the Bush administration...wink -- wink! Palin is the creation of the NeoCon’s that created the bush administration. We need a third party, and maybe a fourth party. The democrats have failed to listen to the majority, so maybe Ralph Nader will move quickly to the fore front of this presidential race, now. The one thing of many about Ralph Nader, is he is honest. He Is honest. Wow, imagine the concept of staffing the 111th Congress with honest, common sensed, hard working, democracy loving - We the people - kind of elected officials? Just imagine? The debate brought me to the place of thinking about Ralph Nader and Cynthia McKinney. Who would’ve guessed. Biden got me with his raw emotion and Palin got me with her smart ass remark. Between each one of their answers I was thinking “Writing in Hillary” and “where is Ralph Nader?” Where is Ralph Nader in the Presidential debates? McCain and Obama are why I want Hillary for my President. I looked up the word “Plutocracy” yesterday, after a CSPAN caller used the word to describe the “BAIL OUT.” Last year I had to look up the word Oligarchy. What ever the word is to really describe the condition of our country, the seeds of the disease seems to be coming from a most powerful place. Every time some mouth piece comes out to publicly defend the undoing of one of our founding fathers foundational fences, I think…hmm--hmm, their being paid to say that. One thing I am smart enough to discern about the last eight years of a NeoCon government, is that they are all about “SHAMING” the American people in to a deep dark hole. I would like to hold my head up in pride again. I would like to have my country back and I would like my government to be about the people again. A Third Party may be the only way to get there now….Pride in America depends on who our next President will be. The leader of the free world must be a sound role model for "all" Americans. The leader of the free world must have integrity, be truthful and equally as important, be honest with us and for us....a President Nader (on the ticket) or a President Clinton (write in). You decide on America's pride.


Pondering these things daily….

Is this how bush ran things in Texas?

Why does Gov. Palin sound Minnesotan?

Do racist people actually get a thrill from making things up about Sen. Obama and his wife?

Do paranoid people get a thrill out of making things up about Sen. Obama?

A third party could enforce the U.S. Constitution's separation of church and state.
