Ignore the Senate; Support the “No Bailouts Act”

While the Senate did cave to the financial terrorists, the fight is far from over. In fact, a new alternative has emerged.

Take action!
Support the
“No Bailouts” act!

The “No Baiouts” Act “would impose a securities tax equivalent to one quarter of one percent of profits and empower the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to deal more effectively with bank failures,” according to John Nichols at The Nation.

Take a look and see for yourself. It is an alternative and it has the support of former heads of the FDIC. Then, take a moment, hit the link above and sign the petition. Even if you don’t think this is the best plan, perhaps it IS best to challenge Congress to pursue every alternative? I certainly think so.

Quotable: Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
from “Rime of the Ancient Mariner”

Tell the Senate: “America won’t negotiate with financial terrorists”

Write Congress!


Call Congress!

On the chance that the Senate is going to plunge us into the reality of being the world’s largest, stupidest socialist state this evening, I thought it might be wise to listen to a bona fide socialist like Herr Schulz.

According to that NY Times article linked above, House Minority Whip Roy Blunt (R-MO) “said one reason he was more optimistic was that lawmakers are hearing less vocal opposition from their districts.”

This, coupled with the drumbeat from every single msm outlet on television, might push this idiocy into law. I cannot stress this enough: this is a form of extortion and we are about to pay the blackmail. There is ample cash out there to be had, both in savings and in the huge printing runs by the Federal Reserve and the European Central Banks. We are being held up and we must say no to the financial terrorists on Wall Street!

Please, take a moment to (again!) contact your reps! The vote is scheduled for less than five hours from now. Remember, non-form letters carry much more impact!

The language of my letters (written today) to Congress (feel free to copy/edit/paste), after the jump.

I originally had this included with the previous quote, but it deserves it’s own headline.
