EESA bill branded as bailout

This is my take on the hubbub going on in the senate. I personally never understood senate shit and house crap, how the democrats have control of the house, etc. but it seems obvious to me that it is a republican bill which is asking for $700KKK.

That Universal Health Care or Obama's version of it would throw off kilter the insurance industry, does it seem ironic that the mortgage loan industry would be feeling the brunt of the economic blowout? What I mean is, it sounds like the republicans are abusing their power in legislating by intruducing a ludicrous bill asking for so much money almost as though they expected it to be vetoed (or whatever it was the house did to id to make it die). If the republican party had an honest spokesperson, I think he/she would say in a sarcastic tone, "See? And you guys [Americans] think that Obama's plan for 'change' is going to be received positively? Open your eyes. Universal Health Care is BS!"

…for a secure retirement, for the education of their children, for jobs and small business credit.

I was listening to Nancy Pelosi's press conference (on C-Span) after the voting took place and recall an obiter dictum come from her lips stating something about rewriting (editing) the bill. Somewhere in this train of thought, she had suggested $34KKK (give or take 1KKK) to be allotted for education.

Actually, some of the most vocal opposition to the bill came from Republicans. As whole, the Republican party is against raising taxes (which the bail out would have required) and against heavy government involvement (which the bail out definitely would have been). That being said, there were plenty of people on both the Republican and Democrat sides that were both for and against the bill.

The bill wasn't introduced to abuse any power in legislating. It was introduced in an effort to keep the US economy from completely tanking and pulling the economies of the rest of the world with it. Other countries are already taking a hit economically from this entire mess. Britain just bailed out their largest bank. Other countries are presently considering similar measures.

Yes, I know. It's obvious that the economy is taking it's toll on some of the more popular lending organizations. It's my attempt to illustrate situations about current events in a humorous manner that I succumb to believing my own twisted interpretations of what is going on in the world. Too lazy to spend time in a quick study of Henry Paulson's face structure for a caricature, I figured I would just ramble on.

Do you remember when currency was being used to show hidden images of the twin towers by folding them in an origamy technique?


Who'd've thunk it?

Thanks for bringing me back to reality.

I had never seen the origami technique thing before. People seriously have too much time on their hands if they can sit and figure that stuff out lol
