Obama Threatens to Nationalize All Banks; Investors at Orange Alert
The Investing Class has been thrown into a state of sheer panic. Terror! According to that commie in the White House, they might not get bailed out and coddled and wetnursed by taxpayers the next time their companies are on the brink of collapse.
Panic in the Suites!
Obama’s financial reform agenda has some eerie similarities to that three ring circus formerly known as Health Care Reform. During this yearlong circus, HMO lobbyists and rightwing inbreds were screaming “Freedom!” and “America!” and “the death of this once-great nation!”
And from the other side we kept hearing that the health reform bill is nothing but a billion dollar giveaway to insurance companies and the pharmaceutical industry. It does absolutely nothing for consumers except force them to buy health insurance — which may or may not actually cover them if they have the nerve to get sick.
And now the financial reform proposals are generating this same hysterical point-counterpoint.
Warning to all investors! Government bureaucrats meddling in the economy. Etc. You know the drill.
These new proposed bank rules are completely empty. Toothless. Phony. Just more smoke and mirrors.
[sigh] So which is it?
And now, this exclusive report: A copy of the Pittsburgh Police Department’s job application form has been leaked to the press.
“Looking for a few good bigots. If you never got past the fourth grade, you’re White and your parents are first cousins — We Need You!” Perverts, psychopaths and ex-convicts welcome.
There must be a few lurid jokes in here somewhere. Go ahead — insert your own.
