This is my local Representative, James A. "Jim" McDermott. He voted in favor of H. R. 3997 (The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008)- you know the $700 BILLION dollars, that would surely top a TRILLION in short order, with no limited oversight or accountability. Yeah, that fiasco.

Well, despite my pleadings, Representative Warbucks here voted in favor of the damned thing. Here's an easy rule of thumb- If this President wants it, it's bad for you. If Fox News is trying to scare you about it, think twice. Or three times, even. The Dems made good on all the lobbyist money they took in, and were it not for the Republicans (holy shit- can that be right?) this fleecing would have passed. I just can't believe there are so many DEMs that supported this.

Representative McDermott, you lost my vote, asshole. I wish I'd know you better, because I'd have campaigned against your sorry ass.

Oh, and if you want to see if your own Representative tried to sell you out, here is the link to the vote roll call.

I see some Colorado names on the AYES list. Assholes.

I'm gonna convert you to a liberal small government conservative yet...

The best thing about a crashing market, is that small, local economic markets will begin to grow again. Credit for all will stop being the American mantra.

If you have savings, you can loan it out to a local business at a decent interest rate of return WITHOUT giving a few boys at the top the ability to scoop off cash for themselves.

Crashing really will turn out to be a good thing, even for the environment, as highly leveraged corps fail and local mom and pop businesses come back.

If you had money in the stock market, you should have pulled it out three months ago. The bells and whistles were all going off.

You shouldn't be surprised. The dumbocrats and the retardicans are two sides of the same shit-encrusted coin (I recall we called it the butt penny back when we played poker here in Denver). Some're bound to do the right thing on occasion. It's way past due.
