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

The Crisis Continues

Despite Chris "I have a muskrat on my head" Dodd's announcement that there was an "agreement in principle," there is in fact no agreement.  It seems that Dodd's announcement was more about trying to blunt Senator McCain's effort to actually accomplish something, than moving a solution forward.  Isn't that just special?  The Wall Street rally today will be met with another slump tomorrow.  

Let me be perfectly clear: Chris Dodd is a worthless criminal who has been a major recipient of mortgage industry favors from Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and Countrywide.  He, and many of his Democratic Party cohorts on Capitol Hill are very much responsible for a big chunk of the mess we're in.  To think that these asshats are going to be the source of our economic redemption is as valid as the notion that the moon is made of cheese.

There is a plan on Capitol Hill, that has been published for nearly 10 days.  The author of this plan however was not at the White House today.  Senator McCain, you would do well to call Senator Clinton on the phone, bring the Congressional leadership of your party to her office with their desire to insure Wall Street companies willing to underwrite this bailout, thus sparing the taxpayers the burden of yet another economic mess a la the savings and loan debacle of the 80's, and hammer out a bipartisan agreement.  Reid, Dodd, Frank, and Obama will no doubt protest.  Too fucking bad.  I sincerely doubt that the Democratic Party desires to lose control of the Congress, and the election all at the same time.  Put their feet to the fire. We all know Obama lacks the experience, and the gravitas to pull it off.  You and Senator Clinton can.  Do what must be done.  Now is the time to act.

And for you lurking Asshat worshipers here's a little truth serum:  There was no Obama call for a joint statement with McCain.  Obama lied.  Quelle surprise!  Here's another bitter pill for you to swallow: Treasury Secretary Paulson begged McCain to come to Washington to get the Republicans moving behind the plan.  Here's how it went down according to Bob Schieffer: 

So much for this being a stunt.  There will be no agreement unless McCain gets the Republicans on board.  Sorry Pampers, adults only.  No asshat children allowed.  You can go down to Mississippi for the debate and show everyone how well you can work the paddle ball.  Have fun!
