The Wall Street Bailout bill, that the wealthy US senators passed last evening, has 150 billion dollars more in pork and earmarks than the original Paulson rip-off bill. The Senate saw fit to steal 850 billion dollars from American taxpayers when there was no real crisis. What was/is the big hurry? Apparently, Bush and Paulson had planned this well in advance, waiting for just the right opportunity to present it to Congress and the American people, right at the end of the elections. The original 700 billion BAILOUT BILL was WRITTEN ALMOST TWO MONTHS EARLIER. McCain's main campaign rhetoric was based on no more pork and no earmarks. But, McCain just voted for the biggest pork and earmark package of his career. What a surprise.

And, let's not forget about Obama who sold out middle class America with his yes vote-where the ever expanding middle class Americans will be responsible for paying most of this Bail Out back through our taxes. Obama solemnly encouraged us to accept the Bail Out plan and his decision to vote yes for the biggest Wall Street bailout in American history. Now Obama, if elected, can sit back, renege on his campaign promises, and continue shafting "We the People." He and McCain tried to convince Americans that we "needed" to pass the BAILOUT BILL, blamed on crooked government officials, of which Obama AND McCain have both shown themselves to be. The American Senate has become one big Organized Crime family with much less loyalty. The only ones that stood to lose were the ones who had large investments in the market, which would have rallied back if left alone. But, that would have meant that the fat cats would have lost a few months of interest on their investments. The entire thing was constructed by Bush and his cronies, a way for him to leave this country in the worst shape it's ever been in. What did he stand to lose? He was on his way out. It was one last attempt to plunge that corporate knife into the backs of the American people who have grown to hate his guts. Although. I'm sure he protected his own investments. I know one thing for sure: Someone stood to benefit from this lie and it wasn't us.

Our middle class has been expanding like the fat gut of those that rule over us, and we will have a lower standard of living for the rest of time. In the end, it will bring this country to its knees, opening the way for invasion of foreign countries.

The two party system, Democrat and Republican, only divides us as a People, thereby conquering us as a whole. This BAILOUT BILL did not even go into committee. The back stabbing, Bushwhacking Dubya, (short for double-crosser) gave our jobs to foreigners, and now we pay taxes, our hard earned money, American taxes, to foreign banks.

Fear mongering has become the catch phrase of the twentieth century. This is the way our so called leaders get the sheeping people to follow along with anything the Bushwhacking Congress wants to force on us. Our voices are no longer heard on Capital Hill. While still paying for the Great Lie of the Iraq War, a war designed to take our focus off Bin Laden, a friend of Bush, having visited him often at his ranch in Texas, they want to shove us into another war, one we cannot afford. We, as a nation, have become thieves, warring against smaller countries to get their oil. It no secret. And, it won't end until the rest of the world stands against us. That's a lot closer than you think. It's also no surprise that we have been misdirected away from the main reason we started this war, the capture of Bin Laden. It was all one giant lie. I wonder how much they paid Bin Laden to take the fall for the other great lie... the attack on the Twin Towers?

One way the American people can recoup some of this money is to take away the fat retirement check from Bush and Cheney. What a savings that would be. How many times have they been heard to say, "No more unnecessary spending?" Duh! It's ALL necessary to them.

From all the rhetoric, the empty talk of our 'leaders', I have decided that the definition of a politician is: BIG FAT LIAR!

Recently I helped work on a book of fiction that has finally been published. It is called "The Census". It can be found on Amazon by doing a search for The Census by Dane Swank. The author, Dane Swank, has woven a story that revolves around (more...)
