Sell out

/ 21 September 2008

Why are we so eager to sell our future? Why do we want to bail out bankers who robbed our country with money that belongs to our children? I am utterly baffled by the $700B bailout being proposed by the US Treasury. It seems a bald attempt to pay off friends of this corrupt administration. I’d rather let them crash and burn. Either way this is going to hurt me, quite a lot, I imagine. This plan does not in any way guarantee success, demand reform, or allow the public to participate in any “upside” win downstream. On the other hand, it does hand Treasury a blank check and puts their actions above the rule of law. “Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.” Haven’t we had enough of that already. I say “no!” to this outrageous money grab. Let’s look for an alternative. Let failure be failure and let’s pick ourselves back up again. Not to mention, let’s prosecute some of the robbers for what they’ve done.
