A bitch is beyond sorry that my sick ass hasn’t been posting much this week! I don’t get truly ill very often but when I do it usually is a full blown festival of Ebola. But I’m feeling much better now thanks to the fantabulous horehound flavored old fashioned hard candies Brother Rob Thurman gave me to shut my loud as hell cough up. They really work and aren’t as nastified as cough drops…plus a bitch just adores the word horehound.
If someone had sent this bitch a prediction detailing the events of the past month I would have told them they had lost the damn mind, but truth truly is stranger than fiction and the world is rapidly going to shit.
Yesterday Congress went from rejecting Paulson’s bailout plan to agreeing on principles detailed in a revised plan…to being summoned to a ‘let’s wrap this shit up with a photo op’ meeting with Bush and his minions only to have insurgent House Republicans toss out their own sorta-plan mid wrap-up meeting…shudder…which resulted in a lot of shouting, a bunch of post-meeting spin sessions and absolutely no fucking plan to address the nation’s economic clusterfuck.
From what a bitch has been able to gather up, the House insurgents want Wall Street to pay for their own bail out...
…and a bitch can only wonder who the fuck doesn’t.
Hell, this bitch is still waiting for Iraq’s oil revenue stimulus refund check to show the fuck up.
It’s safe to say that everyone would like Wall Street to handle their bitness their own damn self…the question is whether that’s a realistic possibility.
When I heard about this revolt this hard working American immediately had some questions.
Can we have some fucking details please?
For example, who among the Wall Street herd has agreed…and by “agreed” a bitch means signed the fuck up and given access to their money filled coffers…to pay for the private bail out?
How much power, if any, does Congress have to force Wall Street to pay for the bailout of all these fucked up from the floor up institutions?
When would the first checks show up…how would the frequency of payments be decided…would Wall Street pay in advance and Congress withdraw the money or would Wall Street control the bailout…would Congress draft the plan and use Wall Street’s money or would Wall Street take this shit completely over?
Oh, and if the reason for demanding that Wall Street fix this shit is that Wall Street created this shit…and this bitch loves how that conveniently ignores the role deregulation played in this drama…then isn’t that also a reason to not put the nation’s economic future in Wall Street’s hands?
Everybody look what's going down.
