banksters

It's worse than we think

This makes me so goddamn mad I want to strangle every stinking GOP apologist and enabler in sight. Their eight years of squandering our assets on senseless wars and special interests has driven this nation to the very edge of oblivion.

Blue Dog Democrats who subscribe to the same sick corporate agenda are no better.

McHenry wants states to file bankruptcy

And that bad advice is all the help states can expect from Patty:

McHenry criticized states for not preparing better for the end of the 2009 stimulus funding that the federal government poured into state budgets in the past two years.

"The era of the bailout is over," McHenry said.

More nonsense from the king of nonsense. This bankruptcy "solution" will erode states' abilities to prepare better, by making one of their tools (borrowing) harder to access and more expensive. But that second thing might be exactly what McHenry is trying to bring about:

NC's Rep. Brad Miller on fire --- finally

Brad Miller's letter to Obama's boy idiot Tim Geithner gets front page attention at Firedoglake.

If only the rest of Congress was willing to call these absurd bankers on their bullsh!t.

Congressman Miller:

I do not place a high priority on protecting the solvency of the banks if they are insolvent.

Damn right.

Big banks: You are insolvent and do not deserve to be spared the consquences of your greed by the taxpayers anymore.

Ireland is breaking up their banks. WTF are we waiting on?

And why didn't we do this 2 years ago?
