Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, and Maxine Waters, there's a triple threat if I've ever seen one. The excitment on there faces makes me want to puke, at least just a little bit. In this picture the three queens of the congress are celebrating the passage of yet another bill that will tear our economy apart. Hold on to your wallets people. This is a financial reform bill, and it was designed by two of the biggest crooks on the Beltway, Barney Frank, and Chris Dodd. You must remember those guys, they're the ones who for years told America that Fannie May and Freddie Mac were in excellent financial condition, that is until they both went under to the tune of billions. Barney Frank was the one Senator who insisted that Fannie and Freddie make home mortgage loans to people that the bank knew would never be able to repay, and Chris Dodd, well, he got himself a super deal from Countrywide Mortgage. Unfortunately when it all backfired, and the mortgage houses all came tumbling down, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd denied knowing anything, or doing anything underhanded. So what better pair of Senators to choose to write a Financial Overhaul Bill? I have to say one thing for Barack Obama, he sure knows how to pick-em!!! Just look at this new Medicare/Obama Care/Medicaid Czar. Dr. Donald Berwick is another one of those appointees that is so controversial, that Obama had to appoint him while the congress was in recess. Dr. Berwick is so enamored with the UK health care system, that he actually used the words; "I'm in love with the health care system in the UK." If that statement doesn't give you pause, I don't know what will. Dr. Berwicks sneaky appointment by Obama, is just Obama's way of telling the congress that they are once again irrelevant. Good job congress, I'm thinking that maybe Obama is correct, congress is irrelevant. The old saying "with friends like these, who needs enemies?" seems more appropriate.
Actually, the fact that Obama is president, Pelosi is Speaker of the House, and Barney Frank and Chris Dodd are dictating financial rules to live by, doesn't bother me near as much as it used to. What worries me most, is the fact that there is enough of a majority of voters out there in America who consistently elect, and re-elect these people to office. The obvious lack of discernment, and the amount of passivity among the voters, scares me more than anything. America will never get back on the right track, if the people continue to be narcissistic, and self centered, and oblivious to forest because all they see are the trees. Sometimes, I actually fear that Americans won't wake up until there is a Mosque in every neighborhood, a Spanish only speaking church on every street corner, and the government controls their housing climate, what they eat and drink, what news they watch, and they are forced into sharing their home and food with two other families. Because, that is what's coming down the pike, make no mistake about it.
The road to Socialism is being paved with stimulus dollars. God Help Us
