You Won't Fool the Children of the Revolution


You know something?

At the risk of sounding overly bellicose -- if this were a different time and a different place, the White House would have been overrun by an angry mob by now and George W. Bush likely would've been dragged kicking and screaming to the guillotine.

write or email your senators
and representative to vote no. You can get their email/snail

My email:
I urge the rejection of TARP [Troubled Asset Relief Program] bailout.
The rescue program as proposed will place the Secretary of
the Treasury above the law and answerable to no one. This also
has the potential to shield the people and organizations that are
responsible/accountable for this situation from both criminal and
civil liability. Any legislation that contains language such as
"Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act
are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may
not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative
agency," and "The Secretary is authorized to take such actions as
the Secretary deems necessary to carry out the authorities in
this act, without regard to any other provision of law regarding
public contracts." Is totally unacceptable. Indeed, I suggest
that anyone submitting such a proposal should be immediately
removed from any public office of trust and responsibility, as
they obviously have either no understanding or no intention of
abiding by their oath to "uphold, protect and defend the
Constitution of the United States."
Senator McCain's proposal for a governmental commission to
examine the causes for the current economic problems has merit as
long as the commission is a Federal Grand Jury issuing
indictments under the RICO, mail/wire fraud, and conspiracy
statues, with both significant prison time and asset forfeitures
resulting.
