My favorite read today on the 'Net?
The Courage to do Nothing by Melanie Morgan (hmm, I wonder why?)
...More from AmericanPower.com, summing up the situation as it exists, not as the liberals wish it to be.
There's a lot of talk suggesting the Bush administration's plan to rescue financial markets is "Republican Socialism" for "Wall Street evil-doers."
Protests were held this week to "bail out people before bankers."
Take note of the kind of folks involved:
A coalition of grassroots groups, including Credo Mobile, Code Pink, United for Peace and Justice and MoveOn.org are planning to express their opposition to Paulson's bailout plan and call for those clear principles this Thursday, September 25 in a rally and march at 4:00pm near Wall Street in lower Manhattan.
Protestors took to the streets outside the White House yesterday as well:
Inside it was all business: President Bush was meeting with the congressional leaders, Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama about the nation's financial crisis.That's the real socialism, revolutionary socialism that's in fact not commited to helping everday Americans but to overthrowing the hated "Bush-Cheney regime":
Outside, it was business as usual.
The chant was the all-purpose rhythm-and-rhyme that on any given day since the Vietnam War might be heard outside the White House.
But rarely is it applied to ... financial markets.
Nevertheless, while the meeting was taking place in the Cabinet Room, along Pennsylvania Avenue the $700-billion bailout for Wall Street was a magnet for complaint.
About 50 people marched in a circle, their umbrellas an array of color against a rainy sky and the early dusk as they shouted over and over:
Hey hey, ho ho
Bush bailout's got to go.
