Classless Warfare


Dear Mr. President;

Given the State of affairs, I would feel remiss if I didn’t take the opportunity to weigh in…I'll start and end with one question. My question is relatively simply.

Why wouldn’t the Federal Government consider opening the Discount Window to 'Me the People'?

Surely, it would stabilize the housing market thereby setting a floor on plummeting valuations of the middleclass’ most valuable asset… Unless of course its by design...

…It would buy time for the Employment dilemma to smooth out. Considering America's economy is based on the fact, 75% is consumer spending, the nation's prosperity is intrinsically linked to access toward growth; People can't spend what they don't have…Unless of course that part of the scheme...

Why wouldn’t the Federal Government consider opening the Discount Window to Average American People?

…The Romance of the Middle Class has taken on the undertones of a Shakespearean tragedy. It has morphed into a battle of their willingness to sacrifice 'luxury' in exchange to raise a family. It actually exceeds the desire to achieve wealth…Now we're hatching a plan reminiscent of the cartoon characters of Boris & Natasha and Rocket J Squirrel & Bullwinkle.

…At 6% per year, I would gladly pay the Federal Government interest on a loan that takes a stake in the future of this once great nation. Wouldn’t you agree most Americans feel the same? Unless of course Jamie Dimon objects.

I believe most Americans would deleverage their debt, to get their personal financial house in order, and do historically what Americans do best…and that is, to do what is next and what is best for the future, our nation's future, our children's future, our Grandchildren's future…Wouldn’t you tend to agree?

Meanwhile, In the alternate Universe;

We have a ringside seat for the Government latest installment of Clown School. Sound man, Que the Bozo theme music.

In the words of Bullwinkle..." Hey Rocky, Watch me pull a Rabbit out of my Hat" to which Rocky reply's; "that trick never works."

Surely consumers will spend when the illusion is created equivilent to pulling a Rabbit 'outta your hat'. By this I refer to the illusion the economy will be turning around just in time for the November 2012 deadline. Disgraceful.

With respect to hope, last week I said to my daughter, "No one knows what tomorrow will bring; What other possible reason could you need to look forward to opening your eyes come dawn?" Dear Mr. President; Would you help me sell that message ‘cause I’m sure it didn’t get through?

Surely, you would agree there is only one thing worse than a Government that loses faith in its People…?

The People losing faith in their Government. I think we are dangerously close.

To those running for office with the sole intent to remain in office simply because it's a good gig, I simply say this to you: All hacks off the Stage. Throw the bums out. Alvin Greene for Senate. I'm OK with that.

Some people are destined for greatness in spite of reality. Every now & again circumstance forces a man to stand up. Exactly what is it you are waiting for Mr. President, November?

How low in the pecking order is Middle Class America? You Sir should be ashamed.

In the immortal words of CNBC's Mr. Jim Cramer..."You know nothing!"

Get off the Television & get to work or you too shall join the ranks of the unemployed. The State of the Nation can be summed up quite simply...

Pathetic leadership on both sides of the isle will be rewarding accordingly, that is a promise. Pick a side.

Thank You Sir,

      Beautifully done, a commendable political piece that should be offensive to none, yet it makes a sound point (or points) nonetheless.

      There's nothing like a good Rant to blow off a little JP4 eh? Much obliged American Romance. I was going back & forth on this one...Glad I trusted my instinct. I'll take my own advice by getting off the stage being the hack I am.
