McCain Unmasks AEI as communist front organization....

Boy, the game is sure getting fun...

Just a little bit of googling, and you can find How the Democrats Created the Financial Crisis: Kevin Hassett ] and as it notes,
(Kevin Hassett, director of economic-policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, is a Bloomberg News columnist. He is an adviser to Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona in the 2008 presidential election. The opinions expressed are his own.)
so it should make for some fun reading.

When it starts with
The financial crisis of the past year has provided a number of surprising twists and turns, and from Bear Stearns Cos. to American International Group Inc., ambiguity has been a big part of the story.

Why did Bear Stearns fail, and how does that relate to AIG? It all seems so complex.

But really, it isn't. Enough cards on this table have been turned over that the story is now clear.
...
you would sorta expect that there might be some connection between Freddie and Fannie Mae that will explain how it is that Bear Stearns failed....

But the writer does not waste time with that heavy lifting...

What we do find is a reference to a bill that could have done some sort of Regulatory Oversight of Freddie and Fannie, but the evil Liberals hate god and bash america.

So we started with the conclusion in the article's title and arrive at that conclusion, irregardless of the minor details along the way.

What I also found was:
People vehemently say that McCain was a champion of regualtion despite his voting record and point to S. 109, a bill introduced in 2005. The bill was introduced by Charles Hagel on the Senate floor and several months later, after it had gone to the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, McCain announced a in brief speech in the Senate that he was a co-sponsor of the bill.
...
I found the committee’s rules of procedure for the year 2005 and the Republican chairman alone, without any vote could have launched an investigation into the financial trouble of the day that the bill was supposed to address. There was no investigation.

According to the rules the Democrats were powerless to block anything coming out of the committee to be voted on by the Senate but the was no such vote. All it took for the bill to get out of committee was a majority, which was held by Republicans. Instead the Republicans on the committee amended the bill in a way I have not been able to discover. It was reported to the floor where it was never even voted on.

[ cf McCain Plays Politics: S. 109 is a Red Herring ]
WHAAAT? He typed in that ridiculous Jon Stewart Font...

But could it be that when the American Enterprise Institute is TRYING to sell us the Myth of the need for Excessive Brutal Jack Booted God Hating America Destroying Governmental Regulation that they may have modestly over played their hands???

Thus that the pretensions of advocating this HIDDEOUS AND HEINOUS Excessive Brutal Jack Booted God Hating America Destroying Governmental Regulation simply shows that the AEI has always been a communist front organization just waiting for the day when it would be allowed to impose the Komrade Mom, in the Komrade Momovich!!! In the Hopes of destroying our white christian america.

Ok, so it is possible that the AEI may merely be bad farce done poorly by the new generation of Karl Roverian Draft Dodgers who just have not thot through that Attacking The President, in this issue, means that they are stabbing the Troops in the Back....

OH ME!!! OH MY!!! HOW CAN THAT BE!!!!

Why that is clearly more proof that the AEI is a communist front organization that the Red Hordes have been palling around with....

So who knows, maybe along the way the folks who have been preaching Free Market Fundamentalism may need to be investigated by the Department Of Homeland Security, since, well, Paling around with known terrorist organizations bent upon the destruction of our White Christian America is not a gooder thing. Just ask Sarah, When she's ten feet Tall.......

And to think that Abbie Hoffman didn't live long enough to see the Yippies running for the White House, with a Hookah Smoking Character....
When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said;
"FEED YOUR HEAD

[ cf White Rabbit Lyrics ]
Any question???

October 20th, is the majik day...

If you want to have a vote that can officially be ignored, remember that you need to be a registered voter before October 20th!!!!

After that they can just ignore you for even less reasons...

Remember, ignoring is what the troops are fighting for....

Communist Armed Agression Ends Freedom in UK!!!

Communist Paid Agents Seeking to Destroy Freedom Run WILD in the UK!!!
The British government has announced it is partially nationalizing three British banks with up to $63 billion of taxpayers' money. Prime Minister Gordon Brown promises the unprecedented bail-out is an important step in thawing out the frozen money markets. For VOA, Tom Rivers in London reports.

More New Chants....

Why Wait!
For watergate...
Not like we need a reason to try to rationalize the process any more than is already occuring....

McCain is talking about trying to get his dope smoking peacenik Dirty Stinking Hippies to give up the Bong and try to return to something approximating a rational discourse, and then he gets his new troopergate news, and decides that it is so time to go with a factualLikeResponse that is FactualFree, with none of those ugly TransFactuals.....

So yes, as we march forward into the new Hundred Year War, supporting the glorious victories of the free market and free trade, we must support Captain Free Trader Market as he trades any of the traders who would not trade freely in the market with which ever is the currently viable for domestic political consumption only dictum!!!

Clearly the GLORIOUS VICTORY of the Yippies to turn the GOP party into the Stoner's Rule post surrealist people's collective of WackaDoodleAge... is a step forward for the Karl Roverian Draft Dodger culture that has been feeling guilty about having back the Peace Candidate Richard M. Nixon, because they really did not expect him to down size the war in vietnam, and force them to come up with some better excuse for their lives than merely being the anti-anti-war types who's whole reason for being is merely to be the anti-anti-war types who back the Peace Candidate.... Even if he is the Peking Pay Master's Puppet Toady...

At least now, we know that simply because it is unEthical and illegal, doesn't mean it is something that should not be done....

So, Hey Hey, Hoo, What's the Dope You gonna Know!
Why Wait!
For watergate...

Karl Rove Draft Dodger Kultur Makes Brilliant Break Through...

mer Goldman is a very pretty girl, slender as a model. Never still and very restless, the expected loss of her freedom fills her with anxiety. For months before she refused to be drafted into the Israel Defence Forces she went to a psychologist every week to prepare for what was to come: incarceration in a cell in a military prison. A narrow cage for a songbird.

I met her several times during September, in an apartment, with other girls who are conscientious objectors. Together they would hand out flyers against Israel's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza at the gates of a high school like the one she completed a year ago.

What if americans had to live out their actual beliefs???

What if it was more than merely chanting the korrekt Khristian-Zionist Dogma???

But it worked on Full Metal Alchemist...

It is the alchemy of finance to try to manufacture aggregate liquidity out of thin air. And those who do practice this alchemy need to be licensed by the mage who holds the Philosopher's Stone itself.
[ cf Ben Bernanke and the Philosopher's Stone ]
What???

There might be a relationship between the liquidity farms... and, uh..... the use of the Majikal Special Sauce that is needed to make that Liquidity Grow Huge and Firm And Turgid and ready to be harvested, only when it is fully primed....

Or at least polynomial expanded....

Why does McCain hate palin?

Senator John McCain has fallen out with his vice-presidential running mate about the direction of his White House campaign. McCain has become alarmed about the fury unleashed by Sarah Palin, the moose-hunting “pitbull in lipstick”, against Senator Barack Obama. Cries of “terrorist” and “kill him” have accompanied the tirades by the governor of Alaska against the Democratic nominee at Republican rallies.
...
McCain believes the attacks have spun out of control.... However, his campaign has stepped up its negative advertising against Obama.... “Some will say, jeez Sarah, it’s getting negative. No it’s not negativity. It’s truthfulness.” The crowd bellowed its appreciation with chants of “Nobama” and “Go Sarah Go!”
.....
Per Baxter, McCain’s starting to wonder what history will say about how gracefully and honorably (there’s that word!) he lost the election of 2008, while Palin’s starting to position herself as the candidate of 2012. Hey, maybe. There’s just a little too much "blame the scheming dame" aroma hovering over the narrative to make me completely comfortable with it - not because of towering gender sensitivity but because these lazy tropes often obscure more complicated realities...
[ cf McCain and Palin: Plausible Deniability ]
a great question to ask....

but is it even relevant any more???

Should we just close down the empire and call it a day???? Say that we had a lot of fun, but it is time to just let things go what ever way they do when an empire implodes from within....

TERRORISTS INVADE HOUSE OF LORDS!!!!

It is shocking!!! just shocking!!! to think that the house of lords would oppose the detention of persons for arbitrarilly long periods of time by the government without actually being charged with anything. It is not like the UK was planning to adopt the american policy of "well what about detaining them for seven or eight years"...
Prime Minister Gordon Brown abandoned plans to let police hold terrorist suspects for up to 42 days without charge, after Britain's House of Lords voted against his government's proposals.

The Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties voted against the extension in the Lords, the upper, unelected chamber of Parliament, alongside lawmakers attached to no party yesterday. They voted 309-118 against the Labour government and in favor of an amendment to legislation keeping the current 28-day limit.

Following the government's defeat in the Lords, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, in an unscheduled statement to Parliament, withdrew plans for extending the length of pre-charge detention. A new bill, which includes the measures, is written and ready to be made law if it is ever needed, she said.

[ cf U.K. Drops Anti-Terror Measures After Lords' Rejection of Plans ]
Well... there you have it, radical left wing extremist God Hating America Bashers in the House of Lords oppose Truth, Justice and the American Way, and clearly are stabbing our troops in the back on the orders of Osama Bin Biden...

I think that america would be perfectly within the Divine Mandates of the Bible to install their own House of LORDS who will do nothing but the Divine Will of God as clarified by God's One True Profit Dubya!!!

Anything less and the Terrorists Win!!!

{ Ok, so I was rather hoping that this would have been the law lords v. the evil liberals of Labor... but we can not always get the headlines we want, and so must make them up as we keep mission accomplishing... }

Do you do WingNut Demonology???

Well there are two contests afoot, one at The G Spot: Warmest congrats to Paul Krugman, plus: a challenge to readers and the fun one at Crooked Timber Is Having a Contest!.

So if you meant to kreep out the world with why you hate Krugman, it is not too late to be trendier than thou ab out how you always hated the President, and wanted to stab the troops in the back, because you hold to the true belief that there could never have been any economic concern, and that clearly therefore those who supported the president's totally insane plan to rescue the economy hate freedom.... or something like that....

Remember, when attacking Krugman, that it is important to show how much you mean to stab the troops in the back by attacking the president to attack the troops!!! That will show that you have a lot more Karl Roverian Draft Dodger Kultur than the rank amateurs....

Is your state offering a Barack Osama Ballot ???

well I thought My stoner friends had been practicing being NeoConClownCarCrew, but gosh kids
Hundreds of voters in New York have been given absentee ballots on which they could vote for "Barack Osama" for the US presidency.

The absentee ballots in the US state spelled rival John McCain's name correctly, the Associated Press reported.

"Osama" in the US is most often associated with Osama bin Laden, leader of the Al Qaeda terrorist group.

Democratic candidate Barack Obama has faced an uphill battle convincing some people in the heavily Christian US that he is not a Muslim.

[ cf 'Barack Osama' for US president ]
Gosh, I wonder if the ballots in my state will be that cool too....

Think what value that is adding to the after market for collectors....

You know, sort of our own National Bail Out Programme, where we create liquidity on any form of Liquidity Farm, without any of them nasty brutish governmental regulations...

National Get Smart Day!!!

The law creates an intellectual property czar who will report directly to the president on how to better protect copyrights both domestically and internationally. The Justice Department had argued that the creation of this position would undermine its authority.
[ cf Bush signs controversial anti-piracy law ]
Remember that under Unitarian Executive Principle, when there is doubt about the Unity of the Unitarian Executive, then one is in League with Satan when One Opposes the Greatness of Great Leader, and the Greatness of Great Leader IS GREAT!!!

Which is why the Kommisariate of Smartness will take over the sections of the Ministry of Protection of Smart things, as clearly the Justice Department does not have the smarts to know better than to attack the President to attack the troops!!!!

All Great the Smartness Hail!!!!

Anything Less and the Terrorists WIN!!!!
