    And now prepare for the full stinking blossom of the Supreme's decision to allow big money to vote with two voices;  it's a subplot of the Swift Boating propaganda device. 

    It's like Bin Laden dressing an American in his own robes, complete with bombs attached, and shoving him out in front of a bunch of GIs hoping that the GIs will hit one of the bombs usually attached to Bin Laden.  These bastards plan to find incumbents in the 2010 elections who will support financial and consumer reform and run ads against them painting the incumbents as Wall Street and 'fat cat' huggers, you know, themselves.

    McConnell, and the GOPs have already started this ball of crap rolling by claiming existing proposals to be protection of Wall Street and big banking, which is diametrically counter to the truth of the proposals.  Does your head hurt yet?  If you want real financial and banking reform, take the time to find out who's saying what about whom and keep the pressure, and support, on them to do the right thing for us.  We should have learned our lesson from the Swift Boat infamy. The big moneyed interests can't buy our democracy if we don't let it.

    I know...this is going to get awful. Lies upon lies upon distortion upon smearing upon nasty ugly low-down gutter-snipe politics.

    But they don't hate.....SIGH.

    Lee Atwater must be doing one hellofa purgatory...or maybe he came back as a poor sinlge mom....see how it really is and how badly he hurt them.
    Or he could come back as a minority--see how that feels. I know! A legal Mexican immigrant. Then his devisive ways can some back to haunt him...since he pretty much ruined it all. Once gutter politics worked, it has never stopped. And now they can fund it? And how do you fight it? You have to be just as bad.

    And really, why does it work? That must be our fault!
    Cause look who is highest rated "news"...we must like the hateraide.

    I doubt that you have heard from the mainstream media and press that wall street execs and Goldman Sachs contributed $33 million to the Obama and Democrat candidates in the last election. By the way they also contributed $600,000 to some republicans too. It would be interesting to know who got the money and how much. Are these the same guys pushing finance reform?
    Did you know that the Finance Reform bill ,if passed will not include regulations on Hedge Funds. The George Soros and Goldman Sachs hedge funds made millions on oil speculation and the mortgage crisis.
    Obama promised to rid Washington of the lobbyist, instead he has at least 30 lobbyist in his administration, did you know that.
    Hold on to your wallet, here we go again.

    The private sector is still looking for the promised jobs.

    Geez.  Drinking from the fountain of misinformation seems to be in vogue.

    Team Obama is pushing for complete and total control of the American Banking Industry by the Federal Reserve.

    Do the GOP Bashers have any idea who owns the Federal Reserve or how it works?  Do you?

    There have been plenty of laws on the books to regulate Investment Banking.  And Republicans and Democrats alike have chosen to ignore enforcement or kill existing regulation.  It was Bill Clinton that signed of on removal of Glass-Stegal.

    It's popular for the uneducated who have no idea how the financial system works to choose to Bash the GOP.  And the GOP isn't any different than the Democrats.  Both are on the Bankers Payroll.  Obama is bought and sold.

    Every time someone in Congress tries to shed light on the Fraud that is the Federal Reserve the Private Bankers merely buy off the people they need to kill the bill.

    Barney Frank is a Joke.  Dodd is a Criminal.  Are we to believe that he truly thought everyone was getting Jumbo Mortgate loans at 3%?

    Geithner and Bernanke are Obama's buddies.  Bernanke is another puppet and Geithner a Tax Cheat.

    Team Obama is full of Investment Bank Appointees.  Educate yourself and you won't come off as so foolish!

    Obama is a Fraud.  And there will NEVER be any real financial reform until the Federal Reserve is Abolished.

    Who do you think will pay increased banking fees?  The Investment Bankers?  Hardly!

    And where does their money come from?  From Government Contracts, From State Retirement and Union Retirement Funds.

    It's all just one big Party of GREEN.

    So Bash the GOP all you want... it makes no difference.  Because when it comes to money Republicans and Democrats alike are simply bought and sold and traded just like securities by the Wealthy Banking Elite.

    We should start a movement to just turn off the channels when they start to junk up our programs with their propaganda.  Let the Wall Street huggers like the two intervening conservos listen to them; since they represent only about 20% of this country, they and their banking pals can have small smores parties.  I will stock up on some good books and spend more time with my friends.

    Both parties are so in bed with Wall Street that they are all continuously spreading financial STD's.

    Don't bother with facts Mike, since "only 20%" of us will appreciate it.

    You are aware that Obammy was the biggest recipient of donations from British Petroleum and Goldman Sachs ain't ya?

    I'm thinking the Bamster be talking out his behind when it comes to big business supporting candidates!

    But at least he's consistently bogus.
