    Was “Economic Terrorism” and “Fear Mongering” Employed on Members of Congress to Pass the Bailout Bill?

    Congressman Brad Sherman of California's 27th congressional district has now said some Congressional representatives were threatened with 'Martial Law' if they vote against the $700 billion bailout and the measure failed.

    Congressman Sherman said "Many of us were told in private conversations, that if we didn't pass this bill on Monday, the sky would fall, the market would drop two or three thousand points, another couple thousand the second day, and a few members were even told that there would be Martial Law in America if we voted no."

  • RECLAIMING THE ISSUES: BRING BACK THE ELITES


    MSNBC's Chris Matthews Friday suggested that Barack Obama is "elite" in part because Obama was wearing sunglasses:

    Can Barack Obama, a man of elite education if not elite background,break into the middle class and talk regular?  Can he talk to regular people in their kitchens tonight, in their living rooms? 

    [...] 

    Everybody thinks Barack is too cool.  In other words, there he is with the shades, getting on the plane.  A little bit too elegant, a little bit too proud of his own bearing.  Is that a problem, that he's just too cool for words.  In other words, elite.

    Chris Matthews is wrong.

  • How Wall Street Can Bail Itself Out Without Destroying The Dollar

    By Thom Hartmann

    For Grover “Drown Government In The Bathtub” Norquist, this bailout deal will work out very well. At a proposed cost of $4,780 per taxpayer, it’ll further the David Stockman strategy of so indebting us that the next president won’t have the luxury of even thinking of new social spending (expanding health care, social security, education, infrastructure, etc.); taxes will even have to be raised just to pay for the bailout.  It’ll debase our currency, driving up commodity prices and interest rates, which will benefit the Investor Class while further impoverishing the pesky Middle Class, rendering them less prone to protest (because they’re so busy working trying to pay off their debt). It’ll create stagflation for at least the next half decade, which can be blamed on Democrats who currently control Congress and, should Obama be elected, be blamed on him.
