That George. What a card! Such a live wire! He sure is a slow learner though. Or more likely, he just doesn’t give a damn. After Reagan began the deregulation of the financial industry, Ol’ George will administer the coup de gras before leaving office. After the $700 billion reward that was given to the criminals who brought the economy down, it would be reasonable to expect that all the regulations the republicans weakened, or did away with, were restored. But, no. Not Junior’s Administration. That George! What a hot shot! He’s pushing last minute deregulation measures that will give corporations carte blanche to ignore the American public’s health. George is also relaxing many environmental regulations. Those few Americans left that think George is a good guy? They should think again. One of the items on the corporate wish list is lowering the safety standards on the water than Americans drink. That George! What a corker!

Matthew Madia is a regulatory expert at the Office of Management & Budget Watch. He says that Junior’s push for across the board deregulation is "a last-minute assault on the public, happening on multiple fronts." The collapse of the Nation’s S&L’s, the deregulation of California’s Electric Industry, and now the disaster facing the nation’s financial industry, are all directly attributable to the Republican Parties mania for deregulating. The ruined S&L’s should have been a clue that maybe deregulation needs a second look. That perhaps it wasn’t some unfortunate accident that regulations controlling corporations became law. The republicans accused the liberals of interfering with the Free Market. They demanded that corporations be allowed to do their thing - make money to the exclusion of all else. They convinced a gullible, naïve public, that liberal democrats had hatched a diabolical, nation wrecking conspiracy aimed at ruining the American Dream.

And the hits just kept on coming. Regarding California, a few geniuses in Washington said that deregulation hadn’t gone far enough. If California had burned the rule book, then buried in at a crossroad, deregulation would have worked. John “Maverick” McCain wants to deregulate some more, but he better hurry and get elected before Junior has deregulated everything, including Congress. The “Maverick,” before the economy’s collapse said, “I don’t think anyone who wants to increase the burden of government regulation and higher taxes has any real understanding of economics and the economy and what is needed in order to ensure the future of this country.” After the collapse John blamed “deregulation” that caused “reckless conduct, corruption and greed.” Bereft of the ethical standards that God granted dogs, the “Maverick” has decided that Obama is a socialist, and in his spare time, a Muslim extremist. He may as well make stuff up. Any voter who can read knows why the “Maverick‘s” eyes are brown.

Incredibly, Monkey Boy is pushing at least 90, deregulatory measures. He’s changing or eliminating the rules by which employees take family or medical leaves of absence. He doesn’t like current law designed to prevent oil spills and their containment, and he is going to ease the rules governing real estate transactions. That George! What a sport! His deregulations will ease the limits on coal fired plants, oil refineries and chemical factories, relaxing their CO2 emission standards. While every nation on Earth, with the exception of Red China, is restricting CO2 emissions, Sport is increasing them! Current regulations that keep the mining industry from knocking the tops off mountains will be changed to BYD, or Bring Your own Dynamite. Catch limits in the fishing industry will be increased. Airborne lead restrictions will be relaxed, and across the board environmental regulations will be deep sixed. The “Good Ol’ Days” will return with the dumping of coal slurry into the Nation’s streams and rivers. Each whirling dervish spinning through the White House is a corporate lobbyist, rushing to get his industries rules relaxed.

Anyone who wishes for more deregulatory disasters, and is voting McCain/Palin, has got to be a moron. If definitive proof were ever needed that Bush is an imbecile here it is, in these deregulatory measures he’s pushing through before his tenure expires. It can be safely said that George ain’t too bright, as he squats over American and voids his bowels. Leaving the nation with dirty air and water would seem to most people a less than perfect legacy. But Monkey Boy is not daunted by such incidentals of how history will regard his contributions to humanity. George! A cool dude in a smooth mood! He says he doesn’t lose any sleep over the estimated one million dead Iraqi civilians he‘s responsible for murdering. Nor is he bothered by the thousands of dead and wounded Americans he’s sent to fight a completely, un-necessary war. President Obama must immediately demonstrate that his voters support was not wasted. He’s got to put some regulations back in place, and he must reverse Junior’s myriad attacks on the U.S. Constitution. He must also bring the Fairness Doctrine back that Reagan did away with. Fox News, Limbaugh, O’Reilly, Coulter, Hannity and Colmes, the army of morons who use the Nation’s airwaves to spit their venom, can no longer be allowed to go unanswered. The Fairness Doctrine will provide an alternative view so that all the lies and distortions that hate T.V. and radio are so routinely guilty of, can no longer go unaddressed.
