AN ECONOMIC COUP OF AMERICA

Posted in Family, Life, News, Politics, Random, Thoughts, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on September 23, 2008 by mclassen

This just came across my desk and I find it alarming so I thought I would pass it on. Wake Up America!

We are witnessing a bankers’ coup d’etat. In the name of saving the economy from a crisis created by their own greed and immense profits, the biggest bankers have taken a country and a people hostage.

“Give us your money and tear up what’s left of your Constitution or we will sink your economy,” is the message from Wall Street and the Bush Administration. “Give us the power and money we demand or you will be left jobless from a new economic depression.

Under the pretext of the banking crisis, the Bush Administration is changing the way this country operates. This is not simply taking trillions of dollars from the people and giving it to the richest bankers to do with as they see fit.

Congress is poised to vote to give the Executive Branch of government, and specifically the White House’s political appointees in the Treasury Department, the absolute right to take our money and give it to domestic and foreign banks and corporations without any oversight of elected officials, from the courts, or from the people.

The new legislation states: “Decisions by the Secretary [of the Treasury] pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.” The Legislation allows the Treasury Department to appoint the same bankers who created the crisis to administer and dictate the use of trillions of our tax dollars.

We will not stand by and let the Bush Administration formalize its vision of a “government of, by and for the richest bankers.”

The new system institutionalizes theft on a grand scale. Lehman Brothers bankers will receive $2.5 billion in bonuses after their company went bankrupt last week, but the new dictatorial authority under the White House and Treasury Department has ruled out any relief for the millions of working families who are being foreclosed.

We live in a $15 trillion annual economy. Instead of taking our tax dollars and giving it to the already rich and powerful, these funds should be used provide to decent paying jobs, affordable housing, health care and a good education for our children.
There is another way!

Now is the time to hear the voice of the people. A spineless Congress authorized Bush’s illegal war in Iraq and rubber-stamped the Patriot Act. Now they are being herded like sheep again to give the White House and Wall Street dictatorial control over the people’s money.

Write your congressmen about this before It’s too late.

BRUCE WILLIS, OBAMA – CLINTON, KENTUCKY DERBY, FERRIS WHEELS AND CINCO DE MAYO

BRUCE WILLIS ROBS THE CRADLE

Bruce Willis has got a new babe, er baby, er Demi Moore look alike.  She’s a lingerie model, must have picked her out from a catalog, named Emma Heming. She also claims she’s an actress. Well, this ought to get her a role. She’s just 10 years older than his daughter. Bruce, can you say “Old Life Crisis.” Right now lawyers everywhere are lining up for when these two break up.

 

 OBAMA COMPARES CLINTON TO GEORGE BUSH

Hillary has apparently made the statement that if Iran launched a nuclear attack against Israel, she would obliterate them. Obama, who is clutching at straws anyway since the Wright problem, has fired back that the statement was reminiscent of something the Bush administration would say. I bet he had to work to get Hillary and Bush in the same sentence. Clinton is unrepentant. “Why would I have any regrets? I’m asked a question about what I would do if Iran attacked our ally, a country that many of us have a great deal of, you know, connection with and feeling for, for all kinds of reasons.” Yes, her connections and all kinds of reasons add up to campaign funds, can’t bomb golden geese.

ILLINOIS MAN ORDERS BEER CAN COFFIN

Bill Bramanti has ordered a coffin made out of cans of his favorite beer, Pabst Blue Ribbon. Yes, they did actually make it for him. Maybe he thinks he’ll hold carbonation better. Though he doesn’t expect to use very soon, he did throw a party Saturday where he he filled it with ice and beer. Yep, you guessed it, Pabst. When they bury him I think they should throw in a 12 to go.

SAD DAY AT THE DERBY

Our sympathies go out to the owners of Eight Belles and the fans of the Kentucky Derby. It’s amazing how history and tragedy seem to go hand in hand.

 SANTA MONICA FERRIS WHEEL SELLS ON EBAY

This proves once again that you can find absolutely anything on Ebay. The ferris wheel from the Santa Monica pier sold for $132,400 and will be relocated to Oklahoma City. Moving it will probably cost more than the ferris wheel. It is reputed to be the world’s first solar powered ferris wheel. Grant Humphries, the new owner, plans to put it in one of his community developments. Now you will be able to get a bird’s eye view of everything your neighbors are doing. I guess nude sunbathing is out.
