Vision, Mission, and Strategy

AIG did and now they reap the results. How many more will follow Mr. Jenkins lead, now that Congress has decided to play moral dictator over .1% of the bailout money going to people who it seems, for the most part had nothing to do with AIG’s meltdown? If enough of them do, I think the end result of such a movement within the company will be clear: complete government takeover.

Watching this travesty play out in the media and in Congressional hearings, makes Secretary of the Treasury Geithner’s move to gain authority to seize business that are “at risk” all the more chilling.

Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke pressed Congress yesterday to give the federal government unprecedented new power to seize financial firms beyond banks whose collapse could jeopardize the world financial system.

Nowhere is there a description that defines what they mean by “at risk.” Geithner just wants the power to do it and right now, he does not have it.

Last month I wrote a post about the herding toward communism. In that post I desribed it as a gentle herding. Not anymore. The federal government under the triad of Reid, Pelosi, and Obama are stepping up their movements, probably in hopes of accomplishing their agenda before the American people wake-up to the fact that we’re now a communist country.

To date, we have the insurance giant AIG, auto companies, banks, and now, there’s a move to resuce newspapers; all the while, they’ve been trying to gain control of energy, either through excessive taxation or regulation. In short, all the things that make the economy go. Control the economy and control the message to the people, you control the people at all levels of their daily lives.

What more is there to be said?

    Geithners plans, and wants for Government control over Financial Institutes is indeed a worry. The quickest way to enslave a People is to control their Wallets, such goes for institutes as well. The “Track Record” of the Government in spending, not to mention Geithners lack of ability to keep his own house in order (Taxes), is proof of why this shouldn’t happen–but then this attempt, not to mention policies (Mexico City), and nominees (Geithner, Lynn, etc) shows that this Admin. has little, if any interest in Helping “The People”. The “Pied Piper” has not led the mice out of town–He has brought in Rats, and given them the power!

    Heh, Pied Piper works just as good as “dance with the devil. ”

    I heard something else on another blog. Somebody termed it trickle up dependency; that that is what we’re trading for trickle down prosperity. Made sense to me.

    The GOP has finally released their counterproposal to end the recession:
    –Roll back the Hoover tax cuts
    –eliminate volcano monitoring program…and volcanoes
    –end War On Octomom
    –Shake down Mexican DrugLords & sell their weed to Dennis Kucinich
    –Make Airport Secuirty convenient SelfService
    –Invest SocialSecurity fund in lucrative credit default
    leveraged bundled swap options
    –Eliminate Idaho and Delaware
    –free large soda with purchase of unleaded gasoline
    –log off Yellowstone, sell lumber to Japan
    …..dunno, might work! 😀

    Now, now, BB, I happen to like Idaho. Delaware? Not so much but it’d sure be hard to properly align the stars on the flag if we lost a state.

    Kucinich would probably benefit by a little of that stuff… as long as it isn’t laced with PCP or some other halucinogen.

    I still don’t believe you’re as liberal as you claim to be. I find them so humorless most of the time, but, you… you always find a way to make me laugh even when I totally disagree with what you’ve said.

  • Joe says:

    As A Resident of Ohio, I can honestly say that we cringe every time Kucinich opens his mouth, sooo–I doubt if 5 acres of the “Prime” stuff would help Him!
