It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Buy Out Bill Goes Down In Flames

Wow, Naughty Nazi Nancy really blew it today.  After the parties got together and cobbled a really bad bill together, Nancy flushed it down the crapper by trying to stick it in the eye of George Bush, laying the blame for this mess in his lap.  Naturally this pissed off a lot of Republicans.  Maybe that's because Congressional Democrats like Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer, Chris Dodd, and others, are wholly and totally responsible for failing to do anything about the abuses over at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  Can you blame Democrats for not wanting to kill the goose that laid the golden eggs?  Hell yeah you can, because we're looking at being screwed again.  We all still have size 7 poop chutes from the Savings and Loan bailout.  Blue Dog Democrats were not too thrilled with this bill either.  

The other version of the story is that Pelosi never had the votes in the first place and the vote today was a stunt to lay the blame for the failure on the Republicans.  And is it true that the media is trying to get everyone riled up about the days off for the observance of Rosh Hashanah?  Hey assholes, how long is the Christmas recess?  What do you think is going to happen in two days?  We've been faking it since 2003 when the first questions regarding Freddie and Fannie were being asked.   Go fuck yourselves.

So what the hell are the moron asshats in Congress going to do?  If it involves anything resembling sound policy and logic you can bet your ass it won't happen.  Now what they could do would be take a look at Senator Clinton's proposal on the subject.  This is one that ought to make everyone happy.  It creates a system of accountability, protects the tax payers, keeps the Treasury Department from being the wolf guarding the hen house, and moves swiftly to target the real sources of the problem.  Oops...too logical.

Or we could go with the Obama plan which is this:


or maybe his plan is hidden subliminally in this video...

I still like the Republican concept of sheltering the taxpayers by having companies willing to take on the toxic loans being insured by the government.  I think we have the basis of a real bipartisan solution.  If only Congressional Democrats would take their thumbs out of their asses, stop trying to protect Obama by shrouding Clinton, and embrace a workable plan.  Hell, the HOLC concept was even mentioned on National Pampers Radio today.  Too bad no one was willing to give Clinton credit for being one of the few voices to propose the idea.

So, do you want Congress to do something logical for a change, or keep taking it in rear?  Call your Senators and Congressmen.  Tell them to endorse Clinton's plan.  Let's get this done already.
