How much to buy you Mr. Watt?
I'll chip in too! If we make a pool and have every unemployed American donate just ten cents, I'll bet that it will add up to more than the sum that Mr Watt is selling his country for.
These jackasses at congress are barely millionaires. All them put together wouldn't make a good goldman bonus.
This is a very impotant meeting.
Citizens needs a true Fed Audit
Remember what happened in the past when Wall St. didn't get it's way quickly (or had it's interests seriously threatened)? That's partly the lense that I view last fall's meltdown through. Could it be time to look out below?
It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.... Josef Stalin
Ron Paul would seem not to grasp the above principle. At 70 + years of age, he really ought to start to try.
Certainly you realize that it's all in how you cast your vote. I'm sure Stalin realized that too.
Well, one thing's clear, that if Stalin had ever invited a fool like Paul to one of his evening dinners at the Kremlin together with selected members of the Politboro, initially he would have given him free reign to express himself in the dinner conversation. He might even have showcased Paul while doing so. Deceived into the impression that his viewpoint was being tolerated, Paul would have been lured into a false sence of security. Only then would Stalin have moved against him, arresting and interrogating him and eventually seeing to his trial and execution. Something similar awaits Paul's legislation, already gutted into meaninglessness at this point. As to Paul himself, he is entertainment to the ruling clique.
And it's very likely had Spock not saved Kirks' life on Vulcan, Scotty would have made it to be Admiral.
And whoever planted the warfarin in Stalin's evening meal was voting, too. And in that moment undid 30 years of opinion making and propaganda in one fatal stroke. Pun intended.
And a most awful pun it is, comrade cougar-w. :-)
The drug story is, at best, apocryphal. There we're claimants to be sure, Beria, I believe, but these would now seem to be 99.9% puff. And Beria was shot, of course.
jeeze, does frank ever shut up
Frank just sold out...
A Barney Frank classic from '05 -
"What housing bubble?"
I think he mean's bought, took to a picnic spoiled gave everyone samonella and should have been thrown out years ago. But he may be a bit behind on current events.
sounds like it
Grayson was awesome.
Will admit there was a time that I thought Paul was a nutjob.
That time has long passed.
TYLER / Not-with-standing how this vote turns out, you and your staff should be complimented on your efforts in bringing this to the attention of the public. Good work my friend...
Frank: "blah blah politics blah blah partisan blah blah not my fault blah..."
Good Grief, Barney is a freak.
Look -- do not look away -- and know true fear.
Frank is chipping away at the bill up until the end.
Thank you Barney Frank for making me realize that this is a totally partisan issue. Jesus, can that idiot complete one sentence without uttering "Repubwican" or "Democwat"?
It's called "identity politics" and works at the macro level, thusly:
There is no "us" there is only "we" and we know who we are. And the rest of you suck.
This is why market is down today...message..."don't screw with us or else"
they have us by the balls
Be wary of Grayson .... he's not as smart as you think I am.... http://www.clickorlando.com/news/20007006/detail.html
Thanks for the link ZH, this has been highly entertaining.
what are the odds we'll get a vote at 4pm? just curious if this is a mere formality, or if there's more politics in store.
Also what was the procedural answer, I missed it - which thing is being voted on first?
Getting only static now. They break for lunch or something?
i think so...waiting for them to come back on line.
i would watch, but hearing Bawney speak makes me homocidal
hey assholes in Newton MA, vote this peckerhead out!
link to sign a petition against the watt bill and for a full audit
Fall of the Empire rebirth of the Republic.
End teh FED.
I just finished listening to the 1994 tape version of The Creature from Jekyll Island. Its amazing how prophetic it is . It explains everything going on today in the financial system to a T. I encourage everyone to listen to this or buy the book . Its basically the bible for the plutocracy, you know, its god’s work outline.
When you have an hour to sit in a quiet place put it on and listen will full attention. I wish I had remembered it last summer . I would have seen that I forgot the blueprint but they didnt, all a part of their cyclical plan.
Pass It on.
cool, thanks for the link.
So did they vote? I can't find any news?
