Let this be OUR Iwo Gima!
The culmination of activity last week in Congress, heretofore known as “The Week”, started winding down (or up, if you’re still optimistic) around 12:30AM on Sunday, September 28, 2008.
Under Cover of Darkness.
This legislation to bail out Wall Street Moguls is sheer insanity in the making, and it’s happening right in front of our very eyes….at least as much as we’re allowed to see. Late night meetings with lobbyists and politicians. Midnight sessions. False, arbitrary deadlines. Rush to judgment. Pressures abound. Gloom and doom are predicted.
We expect that legislation costing SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS that we don’t even HAVE, will be printed and voted on in as little as 24 hours. There will be no opportunity for opinion from those most qualified to render one. There will be no consultation of the country’s experts.
There will be NO explanation or consultation to the US Taxpayer. It will just happen. We MUST remember.
