This will be a very brief entry, one I could not resist.
I could not stop laughing, today, as irony upon irony played itself out before my eyes.
The $700 billion financial bailout bill was defeated in the House, today, NOT by Democrats, but, by Republicans, instead. When they went into session, today, the Congressional House of Representatives and their bi-partisan Congressional leadership and Administration thought they had the necessary numbers of votes to pass the bill with a majority Democrat and a very small minority, a handful of Republicans voting yes.
So, why did the vote go down the tubes, today?
What happened at the last minute to defeat it?
Basically, apparently, Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi suffers from a severe case of foot in mouth disease.
Just prior to the House votes, Pelosi couldn't resist some public partisan posturing and made statements attributing the present crisis to failed Bush policies.
This was just enough to anger a small handful of Republicans who ALREADY were opposed to the bill and push them over the edge to switch their votes at the last minute!
I don't recall the exact count, but, it was a slim margin. Somewhere between 12 and 20, I think.
Thus, Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi's few words and irresistible partisan posturing cost $700 billion and the entire stock market plunged 700 points!
I love it.
And, I could not stop laughing.
Poetic justice. Divine retribution.
It could not happen to a nicer Party and person, except, of course, the phony Obummer mafia campaign.
I can assure everyone, however, a bill WILL finally pass, at some point in the very near future. They will just rework it.
Of course, none of the solutions I offered in my blog, below, for example, and NO nationalization will ever happen, here, BECAUSE NO ORGANIZED resistance exists thanks to the Democratic stranglehold and their collaborative partners in class crime and betrayal, our Fascist union leadership.
May they all rest in peace.
The Democratic Party is dead!
Long live the King!
