Eight years past…

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

It is now eight years past the time to panic folks. Coming from someone who did not vote for the current crime family running amok in the White House, we should have panicked when he was sworn into office. We should have panicked when he started this illegitimate, ghastly over-priced, ugly war. We should have panicked when we caught him in any number of his lies. We should have panicked when Dick Cheney shot his friend in the face. We should have panicked when the voting was rigged. We should have panicked when an entire city was allowed to drown alone. We should have panicked many times, I did. But now is NOT the time to panic.

It is well over 18 months past the time to panic about finances and the economy. We have been in recession folks. The past year has been riddled with the mortgage crisis, the price-gouging at the pumps, at the grocery stores. We cannot allow our fear to drive us into dealing with the idiocracy. Bush is trying to scare us into hastily signing a $700 billion plan that is neither sensible nor guaranteed. We have been lied to one time too many times by this Administration. We cannot afford to allow them to make a $700 billion get-away. They are basically trying to rob the country’s wallet before they leave office.

We must not freak out at Bush’s ridiculous warnings. Where has he been the past 18 months? Busy soaking up the oil revenues, while we pay exorbitant prices at the pumps and lose our homes, our pensions, our jobs. It is their deregulation policies which got these financial institutions (and us) into this mess. Let them sort it out themselves. If you are itching to do something, to give $700 billion dollars towards a solution… urge your congress men and women to pass an emergency $700 billion public bailout, along with some corporate regulations. Pay the money towards the mortgages for everyday citizens. This will help the crisis. This will help the fundamentals of our economy. If a homeowner can keep his home, then he will take care of it and improve it and increase his home value and thus we go forward rather than backwards.

Bailing out irresponsible corporations with no guidelines, no oversight, no rules, no judicial review, makes NO SENSE, unless you are a greedy corporation or you are going to be leaving the White House soon and want to ensure you can purchase your next job to the tune of $700 billion dollars.

This corporate bailout is NOT the answer.
