Bailout Rescue Derided

The Senate of the United States may be trying to rescue the bailout plan, but the vast majority of our self-selecting Readers Who Comment continue their opposition.

Dan Balz and Jon Cohen write this morning that a new Washington Post-ABC News polls finds registered voters divided over the plan. That said, 88 percent of them are also "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" that Congressional rejection could "lead to a more severe economic decline in this country."

That said, a majority of those who commented on the article just don't get the need for a taxpayer-funded rescue mission. There are the usual political jabs (Republicans are responsible for this or Democrats will just make it worse), some wistful yearnings for a world that doesn't (and probably never did) exist and anger.

We'll start with freelyb, who wrote, "What an incredible disappointment...the friggin' Paulson proposal is back on the Senate table. It was such a good feeling, that "no" vote by the House, that accompanying 24 hours during which it seemed that the voice of the little people had been heard. For a brief moment, it almost appeared that hope for a moral society had a basis in reality..."

And rich15 said, "...I know almost no one who supports the bailout... Almost all believe that the undeserving are being bailed out. Local banks and credit unions are still doing business as usual and do not have many bad loans. So where are these panicked people, we don't know any of them."

junglegym asked, "Wait, how come we're still alive? Bush said if Cong didn't pass it, the economy would tank, we'd all....DIE! How come we're ok? Really, anyone know?"

Nataya1 said, "I keep wondering why the war is not seen as one of the reasons behind this financial crisis. It has been one of the key contributors to the ever expanding federal deficit... A responsible end to the war will be one of the pieces that we need to help resolve this economic crisis."

danmonkey wrote, "You can spin this any way you want, but the undeniable truth is that this mess has happened on Dubya's (and thus the Republican) watch. Can you spin your way out of that?"

MET9 wrote, "...The idea of taxpayers loaning money to banks and investment institutions in order for them to loan it back to taxpayers (with interest attached) in order to make a profit for themselves is just wrong. Such a thing should never have been suggested to America by anyone in our government..."

tim591 said, "The sky is not falling and the people should thank the republicans for killing the bill which is nothing but a scam on the taxpayers. Let the market decide and correct itself. The failed institutions should be allowed to die...There are private capitals like Warren Buffet who will come in to solve this mess."

guytaur1 suggested that "Part of the Problem is the right wing ideology of rewarding the wealthy. If People were paid a decent wage then they would not need to resort to credit so much. A Fair Days Pay for a Fair Days Work should be the ethos of the people..."

cwbenson2000 asked, "...Who would you rather have in your community, a man who is up at 4:30am, standing on a corner looking for work or a whiner who is sitting on the courthouse steps at noon looking for a handout?"

theaz said, "We have the very people that caused this huge problem, now trying to fix it and cover their tracks and the Bush Administration is complicit with it!..."

paloalto wrote, "my prediction: when the dust settles, we will see that some individuals and groups have made vast profits on this bailout"

We'll close with dijetlo, who wrote, "Wow, Republicans blaming Democrats for deregulation of the financial markets. What next, cats barking at dogs?"

Message from the wealthy to the American tax payers:
"Thanks for the 700 billion. See ya later, suckers!"

It's about credit and debt. My great grandfather (according to grandpa) would have prefered to go hungry rather than go into debt. He bought everything for cash, period. Now so much is bought on credit. It actually inflates the cost of everything by the overall interest rate (plus the cost of defaults and theft). Who pays? We all do, we pay higher prices for everything so the credit companies can skim their piece off the top. The country see's an increase in consumerism which sounds good, but how comfortable are you that 2/3rds of our economy is consumption based. That's just crazy. It wouldn't have happened if the credit companies weren't pouring billions into enticing folks to buy something before they could afford it. My hope was that folks would see the writing on the wall, that using credit and piling on debt are hollow and hopeless. I don't hear folks taking the perspective that much of this is our own fault. If we were more responsible and yes a little more conservative in our spending, this would not have risen to the level of problem it is. It's never too late to start. I'm cutting debt, I encourage you to do the same.

Anonymous - you hit it on the head there:
"Seams simple to me. If Bush is for it, I'm against it!!" especially given the fact that for the past eight (8) years, whatever the american people really wanted Bush Vetoed, and what we truly didn't need or want - Bush blindly signed into law.

Another thought.

The full import just hit me: BOTH major presidential candidates suport and therefore most likely voted for the bailout. Now what? I thought we had a legit good guy in Mr. Obama...

So. Cynthia Kinney, anyone?
With Koppell and Goetzman for Sec. of the Treasury!

Does anyone else see an interesting juxtaposition of the very experienced Marine Brigade now stationed in the US under Northcom to help with "crowd control" and "unrest" and this wild rush to bailout? Will the Marines be called out to control us (aka citizens of the US) when we finally understand what the bailout means to us if it finally passes? Hmmmm....

I was right about the Senate passing this bill. Most senators are in the category of rich fat cats that will lose the most if this 'crisis' continues, and benefit the most if it gets passed. So their approval is only to save their own butts, not that of the average tax payer.

I am against the bailout. The focus by the Bush Administration, and the Senate has been on the junk securities and saving the institutions that traded in them; not on the farther reaching effects that such a bailout would have on the entire economy. Frankly, this bailout is likely to cause even more problems in the wider economy. And it still doesn't fix the problem that caused it in the first place!

Funny, funny, stuff.

Seriously - the changes to the lending regulations and laws were made in Clinton's time, and most were handled my Clinton administration appointees. The laws passed in 2000, and I doubt Bush could have done much for those laws prior to taking office.

Don't blame Bush for this. It diminishes the things he should rightfully be blamed for.

But don't let me distract you from your misconceptions.

Dear friends,

I hope that you are all well and do not have much pain and torment in your lives, and that you and your families are healthy and happy. I am writing you today because I am troubled as many of you are about the state of our nation and of the direction that it is going.
As you may or may not know, I have been working in the mortgage loan origination business since 2000 when the government eased up on the lending rules and allowed many new borrowers the opportunity to get a loan and get into a home. I and many other people were very excited about this opportunity to open the door to home ownership to new home seekers, but there was a draw back. These loans were great to “get in the door with”, but REQUIRED the new home owner to correct some problems on their credit, or acquire new income as to re finance into a stable loan program. These risky loans were stable for 2 -3 years then would increase in rate up to 6% more than the start rate for 3 years. I, like many, presented this opportunity to my clients seeking a loan for a home, but HIGHLY STRESSED the REQUIREMENT to correct the individuals credit and refinance out of this loan in 2 years. Anyway, many have done this, but many did not. And this is the reason that many have had more difficulty making their house payments. A house payment in the beginning for an individual with this “risky loan” would look like this;
a $120,000 house would have been about $900 without taxes or insurance, but after the initial 2-3 years could go to $ 1500 in three years (not including taxes or insurance).
This exurbanite payment has broken many people’s budgets and has lead many to an inevitable foreclosure. Anyway, I am writing you today because I have gotten out of the loan business as of May 2007 and I am now in graduate school and will be for the next 7 years. I left the industry because I was tiered of the difficulty and of the futility of my efforts.
I write you today because I am so upset by the current administrations attempt to bail out the very ones that have taken the risk to make more money by making those loans available to my clients and the clients of other loan officers and others our country. These loans were a risk from the start. My clients knew these loans were TEMPORARY and were not to be kept, but to be refinanced after they corrected their credit or other changes. Many of my past clients have not made these corrections and are in need of real help. Real help is not giving the money to the CEO’s of the mortgage companies and banks so they can make new loans, but allow the home owners that are struggling with their mortgage loans; ex ARM’s ( adjustable rate mortgages), and possibly facing foreclosure to RE FINANCE their current loan and allow them to keep their home. This will stop the foreclosure process and decrease their payments so they can make their credit card payment, other loan payments and have the money that is needed to live life with their families. This will bring more money to the economy and help other financial institutions get payments for loans or credit cards.

Do not give the money to the ones that have been collecting the exurbanite interest for these loans. They have been pocketing the money for 12 years now and will also pocket this money too. If you were a cocaine dealer, you would not put a cocaine addict in charge of your warehouse…

If you help the consumer directly you will help the economy in more meaningful, longer lasting and substantial way. If some of the riskiest banks fail, then they fail because of their practices, management, and greed.

I was inspired to write to you today because of a simple little thing that I read this morning. It was a part of a simple pap let written 160 years ago and because of its relevancy to our current economic and administrational situation could have been written today, October 1, 2008. It fore tells about the practices that have brought about our current political and economical situation to where it is now and it also fore tells what will happen. Let me share a mind shattering section of it that stopped me immediately in my reading and encouraged me to write to you today. Keep in mind that this was written in 1847.

“ A similar movement is going on before our own eyes. Modern bourgeois * (are members of the upper and merchant class, whose status or power comes from wealth) society with its relations of production, of exchange and of property, a society that has conjured up such gigantic means of production and of exchange, is like the sorcerer, who is no longer able to control the powers of the nether world whom he has called up by his spells. For many a decade past the history of industry and commerce is but the history of the revolt of modern productive forces against modern conditions of production, against the property relations that are the conditions for the existence of the bourgeoisie and of its rule. It is enough to mention the commercial crises that by their periodical return put on trial, each time more threatening, the existence of the entire bourgeois society. In the previously created productive forces, are periodically destroyed. In these crises there break out an epidemic that, in all earlier epochs, would have seemed an absurdity – the epidemic of “over production”. Society suddenly finds itself put back in the state of momentary barbarism; it appears as a famine, a universal war of devastation had cut off supply of every means of subsistence; industry and commerce seem to be destroyed; and why? Because there is too much civilization, too much means of subsistence, too much industry, too much commerce. The productive forces at the disposal of society no longer tend to further development of the conditions of bourgeois property; on the contrary, they have become too powerful for these conditions, by which they are fettered, and soon as they overcome these fetters, they bring disorder into the whole bourgeois society, endanger the existence of bourgeois property. The conditions of bourgeois society are too narrow to compromise the wealth created by them. And how does the bourgeoisie get over these crises? On the one hand by enforced destruction of a mass of productive forces; on the other hand by the conquest of new markets, and the exploitation of the old ones. This is to say, by paving the way for more extensive and more destructive crises, and by diminishing the means whereby crises are prevented”.

Isn’t this exactly what is taking place now. the government is threatening wide spread destruction due to the economic crisis that we are currently in. That your stocks, 401 k’s, employment, your wealth is in jeopardy and unless you give them the power to spend tax dollars from the poor and working class that “they” ,the upper classes wealth, will diminish, their stock and wealth will crash and “ you need to help them” because they own your home, your job, your ability to survive. And if we don’t help them what do you think they will do? What they always do when they want more – invade new markets. What do you think is happening in Iraq, Afghanistan and potentially Iran. Opening up new resources to sell off. Real estate and natural resources.

We can do something about this and it starts by telling them no!

NO to the bail out.
NO to the occupation of foreign countries for the ability to take their resources.
NO to a new arms race to build and sell military weapons, because that is the next move for “them” after this fall out in the housing market. (Side note: isn’t it a funny coincidence about the fall in oil prices over the past few weeks.)

NO! NO! NO!

The market needs to slow down.
It needs to adjust.
In needs time.
It needs to correct the policies and practices that got it into this “crisis” that we are faced with.

Let business take care of its self! Isn’t this the motto of the capitalist, the ones who means to profit and pay less, or no taxes. And now wanting tax dollars to save them!!! Ridicules…

We need to get a hold of our selves and see where our life styles are taking us. Is it possible to hold off on wanting more and more. We need to realize that it is us that are allowing these crisis to continue to happen. We have a slave’s mind and a slaves lifestyle that keeps us killing our self for more and more and by doing this we kill others – literally.

Slow down. And look at your life. What is it that you want, why do you want it. life is important to me as I am sure it is important to you too, but we have to know what is important. For example; many say that I need a house to live in, but does that house need to be 5000 sqft , granite this, stainless that, gold plated here, platinum there, for 2 – 3 people. What do you NEED. Some where to live, or something to attempt to give you self worth. What about family, what about knowing them, what about using that extra money to create “time”. When you as parents die, your children will not remember the stainless this and that, gold here and there. They will remember how you were not there. How you were always worried about the accumulation of new wealth and the sustaining of your current debt.

Slow down.

Where are you going with this. when and where does this quest end. Have you thought about that??? How do you end this lifestyle that has you chasing your tail. What do you sacrifice, and WHY do you sacrifice it??

I love you all and I know that the only way that we can get though this is together, but that means that we all stop and re evaluate what we are doing and why we are doing it. Remember the words from that pap let that I shared, well those words ignited a revolution of the minds of the people 160 years ago and they changed what was happening in their life time. We are faced with the same issues even now, and those words are more relevant now then we would care believe. It will not stop until we stand together and stop it.

My love to you all.

I am running for Congress to save our nation from this collapse.

If you go to my website and watch the video of me on the front page, I warn of the coming collapse. This was recorded at Montgomery TV access in May. If you had been to my website in late 2007 you would have also seen the warning.

The best kept secret in America is the banking monopoly that create our money as debt.

Please go to my website and watch "Money as Debt". None of the media is explaining how the $1.3 quadrillion dollars worth of dervivatives is collapse the world money system.

Andrew Jackson called them a den of vipers and thiefs.

Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves.'

Well, they did it. I haven't talked with a single person who wanted this bill. Oh, wait, that's right, the American people are really just moronic simpletons who don't understand the bill. They just want to eat the rich and if it is renamed, we will see the light and finally understand all that complex math that these dirtbags understand so well. Comical thing is, I NEVER HEARD A SINGLE SENATOR OR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE discuss the real implications and details of the bill the whole time, and my SUPPOSEDLY MORONIC neighbors have been breaking it down endlessly.
AMERICAN PEOPLE!! There is only one thing to do now, because no matter what party you belong to, they obviously don't heed your imput, even when you are shouting!!
Call your representative tomorrow and advise them that you are voting them out - Senators, Congressmen and women, and that you are voting for a third party candidate for President. Yes, I know Barr is not everyone's choice, but at least we can give 'em the finger.

Great business managers or owner s removes themselves from the immediate stress of a pressure situation and make educated, informed decisions to ensure a positive outcome rather than a reactionary, emotional one.

So how is it that a monumental decision of spending billions of taxpayer's hard earned money is even close to being up for vote in a matter of hours or days? A government who is unable to pass health care reform for years can make this decision in days. Is it because health care reform does not benefit them? After all, they all have stellar health care programs at the expense of the tax-payer. A government who cannot come up with comprehensive programs for education, job creation, illegal immigration or fix a broken welfare system that is a constant drain on the American taxpayer for years is ready to vote away our tax dollars. These issues have been bogged down for years, yet as soon as they face a situation that affects their own net worth, they are ready to spend our money to bail out the criminal actions of an industry that has been running out of control for some time. There has been outcry of pending failure of this bubble bursting. Economist and analysts have been warning for a considerable amount of time of this very thing. Wall Street and the banking industry has been running amok with accounting frauds, poor lending practices, outrageous salaries to upper management, scandals and a blatant disregard of what is best for the country as a whole. Government continues to mislead the American tax-payer by caving in to special interest groups and lobbyist for the benefit of big money on Wall Street or organizations who do not promote accountability and responsibility, but instead want a hand-out at the expense of the American tax-payer.

Working Americans who are so busy trying to make ends meet, taking care of their family and their obligations, cannot keep up with all the actions and inactions taken by their government and still be productive. It takes so much time get to the truth of what is really going on, it is mind boggling.

The real truth is, there isn't anymore. Middle America needs a bail-out. However, we are not asking for hand-outs, we are asking for the chance to do it ourselves. We are asking for jobs , not credit so that we can make money to pay our bills and take care of our families. Job creation and an end to jobs going overseas or to illegals. We have always been willing to be accountable for our actions and our own outcomes. We need education opportunities so that our children can keep up and excel in the global world they are very much a part of. We need health care options that put our well being as a priority so that we can continue to be responsible for our outcomes rather than the current system that focuses on the bottom line for stock-holders and CEO's .

Most importantly, we need our hard-earned money to not be taken away s to "prop up" a failed system or to benefit those who are unwilling to take accountability for their own outcome. We do not believe in rewarding bad behavior nor do we believe in being punished for good behavior. It is the very fiber of our being and it what makes us continue to get up every morning and do the right thing, despite the ever constant onslaught of obstacles that are put in our way.

Note the Preamble to the Constitution, which all Americans are
supposed to agree with if they live within its sovereignty:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union,

(1) establish Justice,
(2) insure domestic Tranquility,
(3) provide for the common defence,
(4) promote the general Welfare,
(5) and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves
(6) AND our Posterity,

do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Question: Would a re-investment by the tax payers in the original mortgages
stolen by Wall Street so that they were protected in the local communities
and states where the property actually is and the capital from that revenue is
returned to the taxpayers of those communities, would the 700 Billion
qualify as enhancing any of the Preamble's six covenants?

I am against the bailout. Of any kind. I prefer to suffer a sharp recession, which will be for the long term health of the U.S. economy, than prolong this situation that reminds me of Soviet structures (it kills competitiveness as it supports failing companies). With the bailout there will be inflation and unemployment and other odious things. It will not be without consequences for the average citizen.

I would like to know the contents of the letter from G.W. Bush, that the U.S. ambassador delivered to the president to a certain E.U. country, which has everyone there talking and wondering. This is a small country, not an economic locomotive.

If we're going down anyway, at least we should have the satisfaction of rich Wall Street fatcats suffering along with us. As an added benefit, perhaps if we're sufficiently broke, we'll stop meddling in other people's business overseas, also, which might well make us safer here at home without needing to spend billions on homeland security.

GOP Republicans (Bush, Cheney, Rice, Paulson, Guiliani, McCain) and those contributing members of Congress, Wall Street Speculators, and Cabinet who took part in the most Monumental Fraud against the American People owe to Our National Treasury.



GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET SUPERCAPITALISM AT ITS WORST

Executive salaries, CEO bonuses, grand robberies of the U.S. TREASURY in the $MILLIONS, $BILLIONS, and $TRILLIONS.

GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET SUPERCAPITALISTS robbed the AMERICAN PEOPLE of a $Trillion. RULE OF LAW states that the AMERICAN PEOPLE will be protected and all private properties, money, and wealth domestic and abroad owned by GOP REPUBLICAN SUPERCAPITALISTS taking part in robbing the U.S. TREASURY (AMERICAN PEOPLE) will immediately be confiscated and returned to the U.S. TREASURY (AMERICAN PEOPLE).

INSIDE JOB AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL:
GOP REPUBLICAN WHITE HOUSE ILLEGAL WARS AND
WALL STREET CRIMINAL DEREGULATED SPECULATIONS

You asked for it and you got it. GOP REPUBLICANS INSIDERS McCain, Bush, Cheney, Paulson, and Rice were hired by Super-Capitalists (Super Wealthy GOP REPUBLICANS) to start Illegal Oil Wars against Oil producing Nations and DEREGULATE (eliminate AMERICAN PEOPLE PROTECTION) the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (White House, Congress, Supreme Court), TREASURY and WALL STREET. These INSIDERS did exactly what they were paid to do. Past GOP REPUBLICANS (Nixon, Reagan, Bush I) and current GOP REPUBLICANS (Bush II, Cheney, Rice, McCain, Paulson) have a credibility factor of zero. Americans no longer believe them, the World has never believed them and now they are done. They came in with the 9/11 attack upon the AMERICAN PEOPLE and leave with the Wall Street $1Trillion attack upon the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Wave after wave after wave the GOP REPUBLICANS attack the AMERICAN PEOPLE based on the premise of disrespect for anyone who is not a GOP RICH REPUBLICAN. Either you are in their group (GOP RICH REPUBLICAN) or out (debt ridden worker bee / victim). GOP REPUBLICANS view the AMERICAN PEOPLE as gullible sheep perpetually fattened with debt and led to the subhuman existence slaughter. When slavery (free labor) ended GOP RICH REPUBLICANS attacked and enslaved the people of the world through unbalanced trade. Now that foreign sweatshops are demanding better pay and treatment, GOP RICH REPUBLICANS are attacking the AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS. GOP RICH REPUBLICANS are banking on the idea that the AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS are non-thinking drones fat with artificial food, high on Wall Street sponsored imported drugs (legal / illegal), and choked with clutter, debt and noise.

Through massive GOP REPUBLICAN SPONSORED DEREGULATIONS, GOP REPUBLICAN CEOs, Treasury Secretary, Wall Street Speculators, White House Administration, Cabinet Members, and their insider friends each walked away with more than $20,000,000 annually of money stolen directly from the U.S. TREASURY (AMERICAN PEOPLE). After eight years of GRAND FRAUD AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL, thousands of GOP REPUBLICANS ROBBED OUR UNITED STATES TREASURY OF $1TRILLION (ACTS OF TREASON AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE).

The AMERICAN PEOPLE will hold ALL GOP REPUBLICANS INVOLVED in these ACTS OF TREASON accountable before a TRIAL. ALL GOP REPUBLICANS INVOLVED in these ACTS OF TREASON will have ALL OF THEIR PROPERTIES (corporate and private, domestic and foreign sheltered) CONFISCATED, SOLD and RETURNED to OUR NATIONAL TREASURY (AMERICAN PEOPLE). The UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION (WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE) shall prevail, despite the criminal efforts of GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET SUPER-CAPITALIST CRIMINALS.


CONGRESS WILL NOT ADJOURN UNTIL AFTER THE GOP REPUBLICAN PARTY FIX THEIR COLOSSAL MESS

GOP (GOOD OLDBOY PRIVATEERS)


Britain has nationalized its banks. The U.S. has nationalized Wall Street and will do the same for U.S. Oil if it hits $6.50 a gallon in two years. The Treasury and Oil are too crucial for national defense to be left in the hands of self serving speculators' private greed. The United States greed based society is over. We will copy Britain or Germany’s mixed economy system based heavily on the People government oversight. Speculators and gamblers cannot be trusted with the American economy. Wrong is wrong and wolves cannot be hired to protect cash cows. Today you can gamble in Las Vegas with your credit card (money that you don’t have); Wall Street high leverage speculation is the same thing.

Three weeks ago, some Americans stupidly said that we don’t need to consider World Opinion during the 2008 presidential election. It is now clear that America and The World are closely connected and that we need to consider how the World perceives our decisions. The World does not like John McCain and will not cooperate with McCain. Europeans and the World view John McCain as an old relic bent on returning the World to perpetual hostility.

No one wants another Cold War, except McCain. Palin’s childish perceptions are not worth mentioning, especially with the World watching and laughing at McCain’s choices. Russia does not want another Expensive Cold War, but it will play ball if McCain kicks off. While Bush and McCain are building military bases in Poland, Russia is speaking with Latin American Oil Nations about refining and cutting out U.S. Oil Companies. Next Russia will build military bases in Latin American in response to U.S. bases in Eastern Europe. McCain and Wall Street weapons manufacturers are the only ones who want to profit from a new Cold War. In reality, no one benefits from a new Cold War. The American People, Russian People and World People will be injured by a new Cold War. Expect European demands to be rid of all U.S. bases in Europe. The American People, Russian People and World People want peace and cooperation from the United States led by Barack Obama.

The World loves Barack Obama and has signed a letter of intent to cooperate with America under Barack’s leadership. Throughout the World young presidents are emerging and none of them want to return to the bad days of the Cold War (bomb shelters, high interest rates, disproportionate military spending, nuclear buildup, general fear). Nobody wants the return of the Cold War, except McCain and Wall Street weapons manufacturers. The American People are nationalizing Wall Street to prevent weapons manufacturers from dictating unfavorable terms to our economy. Again the American middle class must see pass their ignorance and the emperor with no clothes (Bush, McCain, Palin, Guiliani). Americans must vote for it’s best interest, which includes a favorable World Opinion. America And The World Will Vote Obama to avert financial and military catastrophes.

Let’s not forget that China, Saudi Arabia and India together hold over $1 Trillion in American currency. Do you think that China, Saudi Arabia and India have votes in the 2008 American election? The CEOs of American companies and Wall Street Banks heavily invested with funds from China, Saudi Arabia and India know that foreign governments will be exercising their strong votes in our election. You can thank McCain deregulations and GOP Republican American job outsourcing for dissipating Our American votes.

Obama has 8 years experience as a State Senator, 4 years in the US Senate, taught Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago, etc. Obama’s very high intellectual capacity allows him to analyze situations and make sound decisions. How can you even compare Palin’s GED from Moose Community College credentials to these?

GOP REPUBLICAN JOHN MCCAIN WALL STREET DEREGULATIONS
GOP REPUBLICAN JOHN MCCAIN ALSO WANTED TO PRIVATIZE SOCIAL SECURITY (BONEHEAD)
GOP REPUBLICAN JOHN MCCAIN sponsored landmark legislation in 1999 that removed the walls between banks, investment firms and insurance companies. GOP REPUBLICAN JOHN MCCAIN bill allowed a company like AIG to expand beyond its traditional insurance business (which is still profitable) into exotic new extremely high risk products that brought the company down and created this colossal mess.

WALL STREET SRO - SELF REGULATORY ORGANIZATION
THE GOP REPUBLICAN RUN Government (GOP President, GOP Congress, GOP Supreme Court) looked the other way, while GOP REPUBLICAN Super-capitalist Obscenely Rich WALL STREET SRO Speculators Robbed Our U.S. TREASURY and Forced the $Trillion Debt Upon the AMERICAN PEOPLE.


Average Americans are becoming poorer, because GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET super rich SPECULATORS and corporate CEOs are paying themselves, business partners, friends, and family members at least $20,000,000 annually from MONEY STOLEN FROM THE U.S. TREASURY. These major crimes committed by WALL STREET SPECULATORS AND CEOs have gone beyond greed and into acts of treason against the AMERICAN PEOPLE. Seize the stolen money and properties valued in the $TRILLIONS back from these super criminals for attacking America. Those stolen $MILLIONS / $BILLIONS / $TRILLIONS belong to the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

RULE OF LAW states that the People of the United States will be defended. Those who attack American Citizens will be prosecuted. WALL STREET SPECULATORS and CORPORATE CEOs dictatorship over the AMERICAN PEOPLE is over. Average Americans are not going to accept WALL STREET CORPORATE CRIMES anymore. Rights of Citizen and Average Workers of the United States will be enforced. The AMERICAN PEOPLE will always come before corporate interests, because Americans Love America more than Wall Street Speculators love greed.


GERMANY, FRANCE, ENGLAND HAVE GREATER CITIZEN-WORKERS’ RIGHTS, TRANSPARENCY, OVERSIGHT, AND DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY THAN GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET RUN AMERICA. AMERICA WILL HONOR AMERICAN CITIZENS WITH DEMOCRATIC WORKERS’ RIGHTS, TRANSPARENCY, OVERSIGHT, AND DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY.

GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET $TRILLION FRAUD AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

Direct impact of GOP McCain sponsored deregulations
Bankrupt and floundering
Failure of the investment bank
Government's takeover

GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET's business model has collapsed

Greed and fear routinely govern GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET financial markets and GLOBAL CRISIS.

GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET (giant investment houses, brokerage firms, hedge funds, "private equity" firms) irresponsibly TRADED the savings of average Americans (placed LAS VEGAS STYLE BETS on extremely high risk stocks, bonds, and other securities).

DUBIOUS MORTGAGES were PACKAGED into BONDS and SOLD and TRADED. Investment houses had huge incentives to increase LEVERAGE (OBSCENELY HIGH BORROWING).

GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET compensation is heavily skewed toward annual bonuses, reflecting the profits traders and managers earned in the tune of lavish base salaries and obscenely high annual bonuses of $20,000,000.

GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET relies heavily on OBSCENELY HIGH LEVERAGE (OBSCENELY HIGH BORROWING). $3 Trillion (stocks, bonds, other securities) backed by only $80 billion in shareholders' equity while the $2.8 Trillion was LEVERAGE (BORROWED).

Leverage (huge borrowing) can create huge debts (huge principal and interest obligations)

GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET is a manic machine for gambling.
Traders and money managers are given huge incentives to do whatever would increase short-term profits.

For decades, GOP REPUBLICAN JOHN MCCAIN sponsored legislation that broadly deregulated WALL STREET banking and insurance industries.

GOP REPUBLICAN JOHN MCCAIN swept away Consumer Protection legislation and opened the way for a less restricted high risk financial marketplace.

While the GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET boom continued, government (White House, Congress, Supreme Court) looked the other way.

GOP REPUBLICAN Congress resisted tougher regulation and permitted WALL STREET to run out of control at obscenely high LEVERAGE (OBSCENELY HIGH BORROWED MONEY) RATIOS perpetrating intentional fraud against the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET leaders intentionally deceived customers and lenders into taking hazardous risks for short-term rewards regardless of the long-term dangers to the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Mortgages went bad. The powerful high leverage went into reverse. Losses eroded firms' capital bases and raised doubts about their survival.

Financial firms took major stupid and wasteful risks that severely damaged the American Economy and impeded economic recovery.

GOP REPUBLICAN STOCK MARKET $TRILLION FRAUD has deepened consumers' pessimism, fear and reluctance to spend. There may be more failures of FINANCIAL FIRMS.

GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET financial crises resemble the GOP REPUBLICAN illegal miscalculated war.


How were we ever made to believe that the now-collapsing GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET model ever made sense? Common sense should have told us that making RISKY BETS with HUGE AMOUNTS of BORROWED MONEY was a DANGEROUS GAME; if the bets pay off you make money beyond your wildest dreams, but if they go bad you face utter ruin.

Common sense should have told us that betting fortunes on meaningless fluctuations in stock, bond or currency values (McCain sponsored deregulated hedge funds) was about as productive as a trip to Las Vegas. Common sense should have told us that buying and selling exotic securities based on other securities based on bundles of mortgages that were treated like mere numbers on a balance sheet (no recognition that the whole iffy construct was based on real people living in real houses that they might or might not be able to afford) was not an intelligent endeavor.

Somehow, we all forgot that "HIGHLY LEVERAGED" is just another way of saying "DEEPLY INDEBTED." Now we've had a wake-up call, and maybe the erstwhile Masters of the Universe will have to stop playing with imaginary money and go back to using the real stuff.


RULE OF LAW WILL ENFORCE CONFISCATION OF ALL GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET SPECULATORS’ AND CEOS’ PERSONAL PROPERTIES RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR ECONOMY’S MELTDOWN. All money and properties of the Super Rich CEOs and WALL STREET Speculators domestic and abroad will be confiscated and returned to the United States TREASURY and the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON ANGERED BY SARAH PALIN’S REMARKS

Comments uttered by Sarah Palin has angered Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton who described Sarah Palin as an opportunist with no qualifications. Senator Hillary Clinton also stated that John McCain and Sarah Palin’s records on women’s rights are abominable. The country cannot withstand anymore George Bush failures cloaked in McCain/Palin. Asking Sarah Palin to become Vice President is like asking the grazing moose behind her trailer to pilot the shuttle.

National Organization of Women (NOW) Endorsed Pro-Women’s Rights ticket Obama / Biden for their outstanding work bettering the lives of women.

During her first term as Mayor, Palin went on an intense firing spree by sacking, or requesting resumes and resignation letters from the chief of police, finance director, public works director, and librarian.

In October of 1996, Palin consulted the city librarian about censoring "objectionable" books. The librarian was shocked and responded that the books were selected "on the basis of national selection criteria of libraries this size" and would resist all efforts to ban or remove any books from the library. A few months later Emmons received a letter from Palin stating that she had been terminated from her job. Emmons was reinstated the next day after public outcry.

Long time Alaskan acquaintance described Sarah Palin as a malicious, conniving opportunist, a reckless spender, and power abuser. Initially Palin supported the 'bridge to nowhere' project and even wore t-shirts that supported the project. When she realized that the project was not supported by the public she decided to back off.

Palin is an avid pro-lifer. Teen pregnancies are a major dilemma facing the nation today. The government spent $1 billion in supporting abstinence-only sex education programs since 1996. In the case of Palin's daughter, such programs are failing us. Palin is comfortable with giving her own daughter a choice, but wants to take away that choice from the rest of the nation.

By picking a young, attractive and vivacious woman as his partner in crime, McCain hoped to pull in all the disappointed Clinton supporters. This was his crucial mistake, because Sarah Palin is the antithesis of Hillary Clinton. She stands against women rights and would reverse women's rights by fifty years. Women are not as gullible as McCain and his advisors had hoped that they would be. Just because McCain placed a young woman in front of the crowd does not mean women will automatically vote for her without any question. Women will soon realize that Sarah Palin is an anti-choice, homophobic, polar bear, wolf, moose, and deer killing machine.

Sarah Palin is incapable of writing a speech. The speech given by her at the Republican National Convention was written long before she was considered for McCain’s running mate by the computer. McCain had never heard of Palin until after the computer printed her name one day before his announcement.

The thought that Sarah Palin will do anything in the White House is unsettling, because she is a unhinged lunatic who will mess up and give the public the perception that women cannot be in power. Hillary Rodham Clinton and women throughout the country are very angry that Sarah “moose hunter” Palin is in such an important position. Four out of Sarah’s five best friends have committed to Barack Obama.


GOP REPUBLICANS ARE AUTHORITARIANS WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN FREE SPEECH OR DEMOCRACY. GOP REPUBLICAN ONLY INTERESTS ARE POWER AND MONEY.


GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET SUPERCAPITALISM AT ITS WORST

Executive salaries, CEO bonuses, grand robberies of the U.S. TREASURY in the $MILLIONS, $BILLIONS, and $TRILLIONS.

GOP REPUBLICAN WALL STREET SUPERCAPITALISTS robbed the AMERICAN PEOPLE of a $Trillion. RULE OF LAW states that the AMERICAN PEOPLE will be protected and all private properties, money, and wealth domestic and abroad owned by GOP REPUBLICAN SUPERCAPITALISTS taking part in robbing the U.S. TREASURY (AMERICAN PEOPLE) will immediately be confiscated and returned to the U.S. TREASURY (AMERICAN PEOPLE).


PALIN FAILIN RETURNED HOME TO 2,000 ALASKAN PROTESTERS WHO CHEERFULLY CHANTED "O-BAM-AH.

Gov. Sarah Palin returned home to 2,000 protesters outside the Anchorage library who wanted to correct the widespread impression that the Last Frontier endorses her candidacy.

"Last week a group of women were sitting around talking about this perception that all of Alaska supports Sarah Palin. We apparently hit a nerve and started a movement,"

A sense of festival obtained. There was a woman in a polar bear suit representing "Polar Bear Moms Say: No Palin Failin." Drivers on 36th Avenue saw a little girl waving a sign "Don't Ban My Books."

"My mom is from Alaska. She's a working mother. She's good looking," said Nolan. "So she seems to be qualified to be vice president."

Asking Sarah Palin to become the Vice President is like asking the grazing moose behind her trailer to pilot the shuttle.

PRESIDENTIAL AND VICE PRESIDENTIAL CHOICES

I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight.....

If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're 'exotic, different.'

Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, and its a quintessential American story.

If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick.

Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.

If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer,
become President of the Harvard Law Review,
create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters,
spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor,
spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people,
become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee,
spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13
million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign
Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees,
you don't have any real leadership experience.

If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years
on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less
than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000
people, and cook caribou/grizzly/wolf stew, then you're qualified to become the country's second
highest ranking executive.

If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters,
all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.

If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress,
and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month,
you're a Christian.

If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including
the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

If , while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only,
with no other option in sex education in your state's school system
while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant , you're very responsible.

If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm
to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family,
your family's values don't represent America's.

If you're husband is nicknamed 'First Dude', with at least one DWI conviction
and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and
once was a member of a group that advocated: the secession of Alaska from the USA,
your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.

BRITISH PRIME MINISTER BROWN SUPPORTS BARACK OBAMA

LONDON - BRITISH PRIME MINISTER GORDON BROWN voiced support for UNITED STATES DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BARACK OBAMA, saying he would help Americans struggling with an economic downturn.

In a move seen by some British media as a break with a political convention requiring foreign leaders to remain neutral ahead of US elections, BRITISH PRIME MINISTER BROWN praised MR. OBAMA as a fellow “progressive politician” who would help ordinary Americans in tough times. With eight weeks to go before the presidential election, MR. OBAMA and his Republican rival John McCain are neck-and-neck in domestic opinion polls.

BRITISH PRIME MINISTER BROWN described the race for the White House as “electrifying” and said: “It is the DEMOCRATS who are generating the ideas to help people through more difficult times.”

“To help prevent people from losing their home, BARACK OBAMA has proposed a Foreclosure Prevention Fund to increase emergency pre-foreclosure counselling, and help families facing repossession,” he wrote in an article in The Monitor magazine, a monthly political publication.

Will the GOP Republican get rich by selling America party take credit for any of their disasters? GOP Republicans are successful at failing and hurting OUR COUNTRY in the eyes of the WORLD. Can we really afford to ignore what the ENTIRE WORLD THINKS OF US?


How does the WORLD perceive AMERICA led by Barack Obama? Extremely favorable.

How does the WORLD perceive AMERICA led by John McCain? Extremely negative.

FOUR MORE YEARS ANYONE?

Eventually, Americans will realize that doing the same thing (electing GOP Republicans) will not yield different results (stock market disasters, economic disasters, world view disasters, failed foreign policy disasters, failed domestic policies disasters).

Spraying perfume on a new GOP Republican Pig will not create a bright and shiny candidate. Garbage in equal garbage out. GOP Republican garbage in yield (stock market, economic, foreign relations, domestic policies) garbage out.

McCain has perpetually been a failure from school until now.
Palin Failin has perpetually been a failure (with a hillbilly hockey mom accent) from day one until now. Her bear hunting Arctic outback kids prove it.

Do you really need someone to tell you these basic facts? Under the Freedom of Information Act, all of this information is available free if you choose to type in the questions.

Lets prove to the Europeans and the World that we are not stupid, because they think that we are after two terms of Forrest Gump Bush.

D Student Crash Every Plane McCain and Hillbilly Trailer Palin Failin are not reflective of the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

If Palin Failin had a brain, then she would have considered the immense responsibilities demanded of the Office of the United States Vice President or President; and politely declined McCain’s crack induced invitation. GOP Republican Party is a joke.

REPORT SAYS GOP REPUBLICAN OIL AGENCY RAN AMOK

INVESTIGATION OF GOP REPUBLICAN OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET

INVESTIGATION OF GOP REPUBLICAN MINERALS MANAGEMENT SERVICE OIL MARKETING GROUP


GOP REPUBLICAN Government officials in charge of collecting BILLIONS of dollars worth of royalties from OIL and gas companies accepted gifts, steered contracts to favored clients and engaged in drug use and illicit sex with employees of the energy firms, federal investigators reported.

Investigators from the Interior Department's inspector general's office said more than a dozen employees, including the former director of the OIL royalty program, took meals, ski trips, sports tickets and golf outings from industry representatives. The report alleges that the former director, also netted more than $30,000 from improper outside work.

The report from Inspector General contains fresh allegations about the practices at the beleaguered royalty-in-kind program of Interior's Minerals Management Service, which last year collected more than $4 billion worth of OIL and natural gas from companies given contracts to tap energy on federal and Indian lands and offshore. The revelations come as Congress is set to consider opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and areas off the coast of Florida for drilling.

The royalty-in-kind program, based near Denver, allows energy companies to pay the government in OIL and gas, rather than cash, for the privilege of drilling on government land. It has been the subject of multiple investigations since 2006 by the Interior Department's secretary, its inspector general, the Justice Department and Congress for alleged mismanagement and conflicts of interest.

In the report released yesterday, investigators said they "discovered a culture of substance abuse and promiscuity" in which employees accepted gratuities "with prodigious frequency." The report cited one e-mail from a Shell Pipeline representative asking a woman in the royalty office to attend "tailgating festivities" at a Houston Texans football game: "You're invited . . . have you and the girls meet at my place at 6am for bubble baths and final prep."

Besides Shell, the energy company employees mentioned in the report worked for Chevron, Hess and Gary-Williams Energy. The social outings detailed in the report included alcohol-, cocaine- and marijuana-filled parties where certain employees of the Minerals Management Service were nicknamed the "MMS Chicks" by the energy employees. The companies paid for federal workers to attend football and baseball games, PGA Tour events, Colorado ski trips, paintball outings and "treasure hunts," investigators found.

"The OIL INDUSTRY holds shocking sway over the ADMINISTRATION and even KEY FEDERAL EMPLOYEES,". "This is why we must not allow BIG OIL'S AGENDA to be jammed through CONGRESS."

The current director of the Minerals Management Service, said that he takes the report "very seriously".
Employees identified in the report told investigators that they didn't think ethics rules applied to them because of their "unique" role in the agency and that they needed to socialize with industry representatives for "market intelligence," according to the report. Those employees, some of whom have been transferred to different offices, have been recommended for internal administrative action.

The inspector general's release comprised three separate reports, including one devoted to the program's director. It alleges that Smith improperly worked part time for Geomatrix Consultants, an Oakland, Calif.-based environmental and engineering firm, and marketed the company to government clients.

Additionally, the report said that the director had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a subordinate whom he paid to buy cocaine, promising her a bonus in return. The director admitted to the sexual encounter.

The director, who now works for a private OIL company in Denver, did not respond to requests for comment. Investigators referred their findings to federal prosecutors.

Justice officials also declined to comment on their decision about the criminal case against the highest-ranking official named in the report director of the Minerals Management Service, who worked in Washington. She is accused of improperly arranging a million-dollar deal for two retired employees.

The wife of the procurement policy administrator for the WHITE HOUSE OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET, retired from government service Jan. 31. She declined to comment on the report. She told investigators she had a "personal issue. The Justice Department's decision to charge created a rift with Interior officials.

One of the two retired employees pleaded guilty in July to a federal conflict-of-interest charge related to the investigation. Another employee has been under investigation for similar conflict-of-interest allegations.

Before he left, Mayberry created a job for himself by writing the job description and the criteria for selecting the winning bidder, court documents show. He started a company out of his Texas home and was awarded a $150,000 contract in June 2003. He later hired Dial, the report said. Mayberry's firm collected $788,000 worth of contracts.

The royalty-in-kind program, which started as a small pilot project a decade ago, has been touted as a way to simplify the way OIL AND GAS COMPANIES pay for the right to drill on federal land and offshore. Instead of calculating the profit from a well, they can simply give the government one-eighth to one-sixth of whatever they take from the ground.

Revenue rose quickly, from $1.5 billion in 2004 to $4.3 billion last fiscal year. But the growth occurred "in an environment with relatively unstructured in-house oversight," the congressionally convened Royalty Policy Committee said in a December report. Previous reports have said that companies were allowed to revise their million-dollar bids for projects indiscriminately, that government workers routinely failed to seek out legal advice on complicated deals and that the agency used outdated computers and a $150 million software program that resulted in royalty money going uncollected.

A lawyer who represented states and tribes entitled to a cut of the royalties, said it was nearly impossible to get accurate numbers from the agency. "They kept hemming and hawing," she said.

In late 2006 questions arose over its handling of leases written in 1998 and 1999 that allowed major OIL companies drilling in the Gulf of Mexico to avoid BILLIONS of dollars in royalty payments.

Former Interior Department auditors accused the agency of failing to bill companies. "We weren't allowed to audit them. It was disturbing," said an auditor who sued the federal government for not collecting royalties. "You couldn't see what was going on."

The minerals agency director said that the harm done by the royalty employees was to public trust and TREASURY, and acknowledged that financial considerations were given to firms that gave favors to federal employees, and he said the contracts will be audited.


Do you really question the motives of GOP Republicans Criminals? America must Immediately Nationalize U.S. OIL and Gas For National Defense.

Navy pilot John Sidney D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain III should have never been allowed to graduate from the U.S. Navy flight school. He was a below average student and a lousy pilot. Had his father and grandfather not been famous four star U.S. Navy admirals, D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain III would have never been allowed in the cockpit of a military aircraft.

His father John S. "Junior" McCain was commander of U.S. forces in Europe later becoming commander of American forces in Vietnam while D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain III was being held prisoner of war. D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain III's grandfather John S. McCain, Sr. commanded naval aviation at the Battle of Okinawa in 1945.

During his relative short stunt on flight status, D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain III lost five U.S. Navy aircraft, four in accidents and one in combat.

D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain III lost jet number one in 1958 when he plunged into Corpus Christi Bay while practicing landings. He was knocked unconscious by the impact coming to as the plane settled to the bottom.

D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain's second crash occurred while he was deployed in the Mediterranean. Flying too low over the Iberian Peninsula, he took out some power lines which led to a spate of newspaper stories in which he was predictably identified as the son of an admiral."

D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain's third crash three occurred when he was returning from flying a Navy trainer solo to Philadelphia for an Army-Navy football game.

D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain's fourth aircraft loss occurred July 29, 1967, soon after he was assigned to the USS Forrestal as an A-4 Skyhawk pilot. While seated in the cockpit of his aircraft waiting his turn for takeoff, an accidently fired rocket slammed into D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain's plane. He escaped from the burning aircraft, but the explosions that followed killed 134 sailors, destroyed at least 20 aircraft, and threatened to sink the ship.

D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain's fifth loss happened during his 23rd mission over North Vietnam on Oct. 26, 1967, when D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain's A-4 Skyhawk was shot down by a surface-to-air missile. D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain ejected from the plane breaking both arms and a leg in the process and subsequently parachuted into Truc Bach Lake near Hanoi.

"Demands for military information were accompanied by threats to terminate my medical treatment if I [D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain] did not cooperate. Eventually, I gave them my ship's name and squadron number, and confirmed that my target had been the power plant."

When the communist learned that D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain's father was Admiral John S. McCain, Jr., the soon-to-be commander of all U.S. Forces in the Pacific, he was rushed to Gai Lam military hospital.

The communist Vietnamese figured, because POW D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain's father was of such high military rank, that he was of royalty or the governing circle. Thereafter the communist bragged that they had captured "the crown prince."

For 23 combat missions (an estimated 20 hours over enemy territory), the U.S. Navy awarded D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain a Silver Star, a Legion of Merit for Valor, a Distinguished Flying Cross, three Bronze Stars, two Commendation medals plus two Purple Hearts and a dozen service medals.

D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain had roughly 20 hours in combat. Since D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain got 28 medals, that equals out to a medal-and-a-half for each hour he spent in combat. There were infantry guys -- grunts on the ground -- who had more than 7,000 hours in combat where I'm sure a prison cell would have looked pretty good to them by comparison. The question really is how many guys got that number of medals for not being shot down.

D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain has been an unchecked master at manipulating an overly friendly and biased news media. The former POW turned Congressman, turned U.S. Senator, has managed to gloss over his failures as a pilot and collaborations with the enemy by exaggerating his military service and lying about his feats of heroism.

D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain has sprouted a halo and wings to become America's POW-hero presidential candidate.

Former naval officer and the owner of an OOIIILLLL-trading company that inked defense contracts worth $1 billion is the modern presidential money man. The law forbids high-level supporters from writing huge checks, but with help from friends in the Middle East D Student Obscenely Rich Wall Street OOIIILLLL Millionaire Crash Every Plane McCain is receiving large donations.

If FOX NEWS does not clean up it’s filthy RACIST acts of discrimination, then American and European audiences will B O Y C O T T FOX RACIST NEWS.

Barak Obama proved why November's presidential election will end in a 50-state sweep. John Crash Every Plane McCain has no chance. It's like George Bush climbing into the ring with Mike Tyson; one thundering left hook and the Crawford Caligula would be sprawled across the canvas. "No mas"! The same fate awaits the crabby senator from Arizona. The polls are skewed to look like there's a political horse-race going on. There isn't. It's a complete rout. There's one well-toned thoroughbred striding from venue to venue electrifying the ever-increasing throngs, and one doddering, old mare limping towards the glue-factory. Someone should put a stop to it before Crash Every Plane McCain gets hurt.

At the Victory Column in Berlin's Tiergarten, Obama extracted Old Glory from the burn-pile and gave Brand America a desperately needed shot of adrenaline. 200,000 ecstatic Germans jammed the streets in what turned out to be the political shindig of the year. Many of them were waving American flags and chanting, "Obama, Obama, Obama". It was like Jack Kennedy had risen from his moldy sepulcher and made his way across the pond for one last rousing ovation. Obama has the very same affect on crowds. Its a gift and he knows how to use it to great advantage.

"People of Berlin, people of the world, this is our moment, this is our time," Obama boomed. "I know my country has not perfected itself, we've made our share of mistakes and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions. But the greatest danger of all is to allow new walls to divide us from one another."

What can we say about Obama's oratory skills that hasn't already been said? He is one of those unique characters who knows how to tap into the collective psyche and put them under his spell. He is the closest thing to a Pied Piper we've seen in the last half century. Whatever one thinks of his politics, his speeches are a welcome reprieve from the simian blabbering of President Dimwit.

"I speak to you not as a candidate for president, but as a citizen; a proud citizen of the United States and a fellow citizen of the world." (Roaring applause)

JOHN Crash Every Plane McCain: Maverick or Freak?
Have you taken a look at the crowds at a Crash Every Plane McCain event. Usually, there aren't any. Typically, there are more journalists and cameramen then people; and even they look bored. It's the truth. He generates no enthusiasm at all. None. He may be the most uninspiring, tedious, pure-vanilla candidate of all time; a complete dud. I challenge anyone to recite from memory anything John Crash Every Plane McCain has ever said in his 40 years in office. Time's up! When Crash Every Plane McCain begins to talk, its a signal for women to pull out the nail-files and for men to figure out how they're going to get out of cutting the lawn this week. Really. No one listens.

And the people that do manage to drag themselves to his speeches out of a sense of obligation are (you guessed it) scowling white guys with baseball caps pulled tightly over their ears or nearly-ambulatory Korea-era Vets who think the United Nations is a communist front-group that's planning to air-drop blue-helmets into Duluth to take over the United States. Tin-foil hats anyone?

Popularity and charisma, how does one survive in politics with neither. That's the question, and it may be the biggest mystery of Crash Every Plane McCain's candidacy. He's just not a likable guy. No one ever talks about hanging out and having a beer with John Crash Every Plane McCain, because they know that he might go "Jackie Chan" and start busting the place up. And he's utterly impossible to listen to. His high-pitched squeaky voice is about two octaves higher than a dog-whistle and twice as annoying. So how is he going to beat Obama. It's a total mismatch.

Crash Every Plane McCain is the perfect candidate for the GOP Republic party that has completely collapsed. He's like the "Jolly Roger" on the front of an iodine bottle; Brand X. In 2000, the Republican Party boasted it was the "party of ideas". What ideas? The Republican Party has never had ideas because the corporate mandarins and blue-blooded kleptocrats that run the party are suspicious of ideas, ideology, doctrine, philosophy or anything else that veers from their primary objectives of crushing the poor, despoiling the environment, carpet-bombing brown people wherever they may be, and enriching themselves. That's all they care about. The task of the right-wing think-tanks is to treat "war and tax cuts" like they're ideas. They're not. But war and tax cuts ARE the two foundation blocks of the Republican Party. There's nothing else; there never has been. Don't look for ideas; there aren't any. GOP Republican get rich quick by defrauding the AMERICAN PEOPLE, robbing the National TREASURY, sending American jobs overseas, and raising the national debt.

Hold Bush, Cheney, Rice, and Crash Every Plane McCain accountable for the crimes they've committed during their time in office.

Obama is not a candidate; he's a phenomenon. Obama is an explosive, vital, charismatic politician. When he speaks people feel better about themselves and their country. And, they're more hopeful about the future, too. That's what makes him unbeatable.

Crash Every Plane McCain, on the other hand, is the perfect embodiment of his party; a rusty, broken-down hulk that's been stripped of its engine, its fenders and all its moving parts. Even the steering wheel is gone. It's a dead-loss; nothing is salvageable.

Crash Every Plane McCain is in way over his head. This election is going to be a real embarrassment for him. It's too bad. He should be back at the Phoenix Rest Home shooing kids off the front lawn instead of waiting for the ax to fall in November. It's a rotten way to end a career.

For those who need others to do their research for them, here are some links for you to check out:

History of ARM:

http://www.answers.com/topic/adjustable-rate-mortgage

Banking Dictionary: Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM)
Residential mortgage in which the interest rate floats up or down according to changes in an index rate. Adjustable-rate mortgages usually have lower initial interest rates than fixed-rate mortgages, so there is an opportunity for substantial interest savings over the life of the loan if rates remain steady or decline. Adjustable-rate mortgages first appeared in the 1960s but did not gain wide popularity until the 1980s, when lenders began promoting ARM loans as a low-cost alternative to thirty-year, fixed-rate mortgage loans.

Glass-Steagall Act:

http://news.goldseek.com/GoldSeek/1209999600.php

However, in 1999, the US Congress repealed the Glass-Steagall Act and America was once again vulnerable to the highly leveraged shenanigans of Wall Street. This time, however, it was not only the US but the entire world whose futures were to be bet and lost by Wall Street gamblers.

Is 700 billion dollar plan really necessary? Wouldn’t it be better if the government shuts down the stock market, say for a month or so? Isn’t buying up the bad mortgages of banks going to unleash that amount of money in the markets on top of the billions released in last three months or so? Would the banks start to loan out the money to any tom, dick or jerry after what has happened to their loans in the past? Wouldn’t that lead to heightened inflation? Does anybody remember 1933 Germany when it took a bag full of money to buy a loaf of bread? Congress needs to step back and let the stock market go where it wants to. Banks will loan the money to deserving clients if banks want to stay in business regardless of the bail out. This market meltdown is a fabricated crisis cooked up by Bush administration just like Iraq war or terrorism threat to get homeland security bill passed by Congress.

When today's on-line Post appeared around midnight there was listed under "Opinion" a brilliantly useful article called "The Trickle-Up Bailout" by

Jonathan G.S. Koppell and William N. Goetzmann, professors at the Yale School of Management. Koppell is director of the Milstein Center for Corporate Governance and Performance and Goetzmann directs the International Center for Finance.

Immediately there began a series of 141 almost all supportive and worthwhile comments by registered commentors.

However now the article has disappeared from the Opinion list.

What remains includes the amazingly foolish column by tv celebrity George Will.

And we now have "dot.com" which, though its heading is "Bailout Rescue Derided", makes no mention of "Trickle-Up Bailout" and its comments.

This is a good example of the really important media manipulation which Chomsky writes about.

Finally at 12:54:45 a rare ugly comment on "Trickle-Up Bailout" says:

"The other thing is the authors are not members of congress. Maybe just school teachers. The could just has well write for "Playboy". I wonder if they get paid by the word?"

The blame game is answered simply. How did we get in this mess? 1999, when the portions of the Glass-Steagall Act that banned mixed banking were repealed due to pressure from commercial banks wanting to re-enter the lucrative stocks biz. That act was put in place after the great depression to prevent what is happening now. In 1999 Bill Clinton was president. So if you feel you must blame someone, blame him. The fact is, in 1999 the groundwork was put in place for for this mess to happen. It was just a matter of time.

How did we get into the sub-prime mess? Another post depression invention. The adjustable rate mortgage, first used in the 1960's. In the mid 1990's the sub-prime market started using the adjustable rate mortgages to lure more people into home ownership based on the assumption that the value of homes would always go up, salaries would go up and inflation would not be a factor. History has shown that this was not the case and in 2007, it started to fall apart.

The question we have to answer now is, do we want to keep rewarding those that caused this mess or take the tough stand to say "no" and let the market do what it has always done, level out on it's own. Without costing the tax payers a trillion dollars or more.

Let credit restrict. It will not blow up the economy- it will, however, blow up businesses that take huge risks and will, unfortunately, make it harder for start-up businesses (huge risks in and of themselves). Sorry; but it's not worth 700 billion more dollars so that you can get a business credit card.

I agree with most citizens that this is happening too fast to be legitimate. Also the people who are handling the bailout are the same ones who assisted in the failure.

I am against the bailout. I just hope the others against the bailout truly understand how bad things are going to get over the next few years. Overextended American consumers and the government can no longer live beyond their means. The adjustment period of going back to credit basics will cause even more econonmic contraction and will be tough. Good luck everyone. Our parents and grandparents got through it; we can too.

Bailout:

This is fishy. Why the rush? Did they want to do this so hurriedly that we didn’t have time to think? Why the closed door meetings? Why were private investors not given a chance to buy up these toxic mortgages very cheaply? Were our creditors pressuring us? Were conflicts of interest involved? Was it political? And forget about the taxpayers ever “profiting” from this deal. I think they’re trying to scare us.

This is strange. This smells to high heaven.
