This is where the rubber meets the road.
Is there intelligent life in Congress, or are we being led off the edge of the cliff by a bus full of Bozos?
The idea that Ben and Henry have any interest other than helping their Wall Street and Banking cronies out and/or, worse yet, consolidating their control, is absurd. It is absurd, because that is all this bailout plan will do - besides completely destroying the dollar and making fools of me and you.
The semi-justifiable argument, as I have heard from main stream economic commentators the last few days, is that the bailout is not a good plan, but it is all we have and something must be done.
They are wrong that this plan is all we have, but they are right in that something must be done. Let these bums bite dirt!
It is hard to disbelieve conspiracy theories when everything seems to point that direction. You and I will not benefit in any way from this bailout. The depression is coming either way. What it will do is to help to consolidate power in the hands of the wealthy elite. We’re supposed to believe that giving the wealthy billions just before necessities like heating oil, gasoline, electricity and other essentials hit the roof due to rising costs and inflation is to our benefit in some way?
This conception is not only a bad idea to begin with, but section 8 of this legislation handed Congress by the administration states:
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.
This is typical of an administration who has done their best to undermine the judicial system and dispense with the authority vested in Congress. Now, they expect us to give total authority of our economy to former Goldman Sachs CEO turned Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and the Federal Reserve, with no oversight or accountability?
It don’t take no rocket scientist to figure this one out folks!
The question is, are our representatives in Congress smart enough to figure it out. If not, then we need to get rid of all of them - the Wall Street tycoons AND the people in Congress - and start all over. They can all bite the dirt for all I care! It may mean I’ll have to turn my front lawn into a vegetable garden, but I’m probably going to have to do that anyway.
Heck, even Newt Gingrich has this one figured out. In an article posted on the American Enterprise Institute Web site, Gingrich stated:
If there is a conspiracy going on - with the goal of world totalitarian control - and I, for one, have no reason to believe there is not, then everything falls into place. People like Henry Kissinger, George H.W. Bush and Adolf Hitler have all alluded to the fact that all you need is the right crisis to steer the public wherever you want to take them. Once you have them, as David Rockefeller put it, “prepared to march towards a world government”, you keep them in line by controlling their finances. Mayer Rothschild was blatant; “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”
- “It’s time to end the silence and clear up the confusion
- “Congress has an obligation to protect the taxpayer
- “Congress has an obligation to limit the executive branch to the rule of law
- “Congress has an obligation to perform oversight.”
- “Congress was designed by the Founding Fathers to move slowly, precisely to avoid the sudden panic of a one-week solution that becomes a 20-year mess.”
If Congress approves this unprecedented action, we will simply be one more step toward putting absolute control of our society in the hands of the power elite. Inflation, as well, will be unprecedented.
They DO have an agenda. Those who may disbelieve that need to do some personal research. Truth cannot be learned. It must be realized. The players themselves have stated their intentions over and over, but few seem to be listening.
This legislation is nothing but the upper 2% borrowing money from us to pay for their negligence or, worse yet, it could very well be a planned event toward an eventual goal of dissolving our national sovereignty by forming a North American Union.
How about we make a deal - the Federal Reserve will dissolve itself and our debt and give us back our gold, which they are holding as collateral for this debt that we owe them for allowing them the privilege of printing worthless money and charging us interest on it. Then we can distribute that gold to the people. Now THAT would be a boon to the economy!
