Good times

Any time you meet a payment. - Good Times.
Any time you need a friend. - Good Times.
Any time you’re out from under.
Not getting hassled, not getting hustled.
Keepin’ your head above water,
Making a wave when you can.

"And I know that many of you here are watching how the United States government will address the problems in our financial system."
George W. Bush said in his last speech before the United Nations as President of the United States Tuesday. Having been buffeted by questions from all corners as to what he was going to do about the disaster he and his party had so assiduously worked for all these years, he reassured the world:
"I am confident we will act in the urgent time frame required.''
Did anyone ask why the hell he didn't do something 8 years ago; why did his party continue the easy credit rip off; the supply side shell game; the deficit spending, the deregulation, the tax cuts in time of the most expensive war in 63 years? Did anyone need to?

Temporary lay offs. - Good Times.
Easy credit rip offs. - Good Times.
Scratchin’ and surviving. - Good Times.
Hangin in a chow line - Good Times.
Ain’t we lucky we got ‘em - Good Times.

GW only did what his masters at the Federal Reserve made him do. He followed the script to a T.

All this was inevitable and I've been saying that for years. The man has been a puppet all his life and McCain would be another one.

I'm not so convinced that Obama is any more or less independent than the rest of the junta.

When do you think the collapse is coming?

Capt. Fogg said...

Well the GOPsters claim it's a depression by Tuesday if we don't give them the trillion dollars. Either way I think we're in for years of pain.

But of Course Obama has his weaknesses and failing, but we're comparing Barney Fife to the Terminator. Even if Obama sat there and did nothing we'd be better off than with the crooks and liars McCain brings with him. He hasn't had time to become as corrupt as the Bush machine and McCain isn't going to tamper with the mechanism.

Did you see how he swore Rick Davis had nothing to do with Freddie Mac and how it turns out Davis was on their payroll for 2 million a year until this month?

Lies, lies and corruption.

What difference does one candidate make if we still have the Federal Reserve?

Capt. Fogg said...

The president hardly has powers do do anything candidates claim they will do if elected.

The Fed didn't start the war, the fed didn't push through decades of deregulation that allowed decades of corruption and in fact we've been doing fairly well for the last 60 years or so.

The Fed didn't override the constitution, or invent supply side economics or a regressive tax system and in fact I don't really see it as anything but part of the general atmosphere of corruption. I'm not willing to advocate anarchy just because the government is corrupt.

i think the fed gets its bum rap fro 1) it was created by a dem congress w/ a dem prez, so o course the gops smear it, 2) it admittedly did a lousy job during the run-up 2 the gr8 dpression, n didn' really get the hang o monetary policy till decades later, n 3) its various heads, including even, yes, the vaunted greenspan, screw up now n then.
