Don’t Buy The (Bailout) Hype – Cont.d

Lest any of you thought that your uncle was just on a personal (and maybe delusional) rant, about the sham of a “Rescue Plan”, you should check out the videos from the link below.  They are of Congressman Brad Sherman speaking to the House about how Wall Street and pro-bailout senators used “fraud, bribery and threats of violence” to get the House to pass Bush/Paulson’s (very personal) piece of crap.  It’s shoddy legislation, that gives too much authority to one man (Paulson).  It’s full of loopholes, loaded with pork, and doesn’t effectively deal with corporate executives’ compensation (thievery).  And, guess who might wind up with the lion’s share of the $700+Billion???

We certainly DIDN’T see the desired result with the Stock Market!  It’s up a fraction today, but it could take years to recoup the losses . . . if they CAN be recouped.


PS.  The corporate media was complicit in this whole mess

Paulson’s Phishing Expedition (NOT Sarah Palin E-mail)

I get SO much great stuff in my e-mail!  This isn’t Sarah Palin related, but it certainly IS topical.  I have no idea who actually wrote it, but it deserves *publishing*.  If I find out the author, and they don’t mind taking credit, I’ll give them their due.   YUR

I call this:  Paulson’s Phishing Expedition

“Dear American:

I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude.

I am Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America. My country has had crisis that has caused the need for large transfer of funds of $800,000,000,000 US. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be most profitable to you.

I am working with Mr. Phil Gramm, vice-chairman for UBS investment bank, who will be my replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As Senator, you may know Mr. Gramm as the gracious leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s and the great creator of the Enron loophole in 2000, which deregulated energy resources. Understand that Mr. Gramm is an honorable man and this transaction you make is 100% safe.

This is a matter of great urgency. We need a blank check. We need the funds as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer these funds in the names of our close friends because we are constantly under surveillance. My family lawyer advised me that I should look for a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred.

Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction. After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.

Yours Faithfully,

Minister of Treasury Paulson”

How Many Newspapers Will Run This Photo?

This is happening today, 09/23/08, in Washington D.C., on a 35 foot ledge of the National Archive Building.  I, personally, think they should be including Karl Rove somewhere on their banner.  Dick and Duh-bya couldn’t have done . . . anything, without Baby Huey’s help!   YUR

(These men certainly are NOT slaves.)
