Ron Paul: The Do-Something Congress

Ron Paul: The Do-Something Congress

It has not been a good week for the Republic.  It took quite a bit of trampling of the Constitution, but the bailout bill passed, as I suspected it would.

The bailout failed the first time it was brought to the House.  Undaunted, the Senate pressed on by attaching the bailout as an amendment to another House passed bill that was pending in the Senate.  The new bailout version had new taxes, so according to the Constitution it should not have originated in the Senate.

What part of NO BAILOUT did you people not understand?

Seriously.  There are some incredibly dense fucking people in our world:

Barney Frank breaks wind at News Conference on Sunday, blames Bush.

Harry Reid.  George W. Bush.  John McCain.  Barack Hussein Obama.  Nancy Pelosi.  Mitch McConnell.  Christopher Dodd.  Henry Paulson.  Ben Shalom Bernanke.  Smug little bunch, they were until Monday, huh?

And let’s not forget the most ARROGANT Congressman of the moment:

“If you just solely rely on the phone calls we’re getting from home, listening to people who don’t understand the complexities of our marketplace and what we’re dealing with here, the easiest vote for you to make would be a no vote today. You have to go beyond that.” – Rep Gary Miller R-CA Dist. 42

Yes, indeed.  You just heard Lord Gary Miller tell us we were stupid.  Apparently, only the elected officials in Washington understand the complexities of the economy.  Give him a call now (202-225-3201) and tell him just how much you appreciated his demeaning and insulting comments.  Tell him Mobiüs sent you.

None of these self-serving, treasonous louts got the message on Monday – they’re back with a vengeance trying to push another Bailout package through Congress to fill the coffers of the impoverished Wall Street Moguls.  The Senate plans to vote on the $700 billion financial rescue bill Wednesday evening — two days after the House voted it down.

John McCain and Barack Hussein Obama.

Yeah, I know.  I already listed them.  But ya know, these two Senators want to be our next President.  And ALREADY, overwhelmingly, they are telling you they don’t care about what you want.  Already. Continue reading

Like a thief in the night…..

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. Continue reading
