If any of you have been wondering what our boy Alan Grayson has been up to, here it is. First of all he shaved that ridiculous looking beard off.
Hmmm, this explains why he had that beard in the first place...
Second, he has taken up the fine art of visual prose, as this visually stimulating and humorous letter demonstrates.
It seems pretty clear what his re-election strategy is. Not a bad one if you are looking to corner the AARP vote in Florida.
Amidst the continuing carnival of debt, and putting aside the collective idiocy of Washington DC (Debt Ceiling), I found it somewhat disquieting to see just how much our government is trying to ape the short term priorities of Wall Street.
Look at them all kowtowing to the rating agencies. I mean who really gives a flying AIG what the rating agencies think. Why don't we just shut them all down instead of watching them pretend to have their hallelujah moment? Yes good old subprime Amerika is no longer a AAA credit. Do we really need those useless shit bags to tell us this?
Next, the idea that decisions have to be timed to the market. All weekend we heard about the financial mayhem that would follow if an agreement could not be announced before the Asian open.
Wow! What a climax.
This just goes to show how very very little little Chicken Geithner understands where and when the financial contagion will strike next. It also tells us that our debt addicted leaders are thinking spin and instant market gratification instead of long term planning for the future of the Republic.
That crazy Floridian Fraudclosurenaut Grayson seems to have it right again. Boehner can't deliver what the Democrats desperately need and the Democrats will commit public harakiri if they go along with putting the knife to SM&M without getting something tangible, instead of smoke and mirrors, in return.
Somewhere over the weekend, I read a comment about the Titanic analogy that was really spot on.
Unlike Washington DC, the crew of the Titanic did not have the benefit of months and months of advance warning and preparations for the approaching field of mega icebergs in which we now find ourselves smack in the middle.
