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

McCain's Mortgage Rescue Plan Catching On

It is being reported today that a Rasmussen survey shows that 52% of those surveyed support Senator John McCain's plan for the federal government to use a portion of the $700 billion rescue package to help buy up mortgages to help keep Americans from foreclosure.  Mike Sunnucks of the Phoenix Business Journal reports:
Support for the plan crosses party lines with more Democrats backing McCain’s idea than Republicans, according to the Rasmussen poll.
Sunnucks also notes that Obama opposes the plan.  As I have said in previous posts, John McCain is embracing a policy he knows is unpopular with his party.  Why?  Because, as he's been saying over and over again, John McCain puts his country first.  He knows that his friend, Senator Clinton, is one of the most brilliant minds in the Senate, with a wonkish grasp of the economy that is so complete it is scary.  So when she writes an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal advocating a revival of the HOLC, McCain listens, and knows it will work.  McCain has history on his side.  Now it seems he is also drawing America to his side.  

While Barack Obama continues to try to let the ACORN/Housing Market plan play out, with the hopes that this will propel him into the White House and allow for an atmosphere of panic that he and his backers will try to use to their advantage if he wins, Senator McCain is taking a great political risk in order to save our flagging economy, and keep Americans in their homes.

This is the McCain the nation saw on the campaign trail in 2000; the risk taker, the public servant.  This election has never been about a lust for power as we see with Pampers.  It's about the smirking wise ass who ended up in a stinking shit hole in Hanoi, who emerged a humble man understanding all that he had taken for granted, dedicating the rest of his life to serving the country he loves.  He loves it so much that he's willing to embrace a policy that originated with a Democratic President, and was advocated recently by a Democratic Senator from New York that he greatly admires.  The contrast between John McCain and the Democrat nominee could not be more clear.

You Are Smokin' Today!!! Keep it up....wonkish understanding that is scary. Oh Yeah, Hillary has such a command of the economy that I could completely just say - go ahead - not like with Paulsen who is scaring the shit outta me.

Like Larry Johnson said when he met Hillary - she is scary smart.
