President Bush Successful

Posted by Reed on Tuesday, October 7, 2008

President Bush has been successful in:

  • doubling the national debt;
  • leaving our country with a projected 1/2 Trillion dollar annual debt for next fiscal year;
  • giving top 1% of taxpayers a $1000 per week tax break;
  • permitting credit market businesses unrestrained risk taking that resulted a $700 Billion bailout;
  • creating a bailout situation so large there is no money remaining: to repair our health insurance crisis; to initiate energy infrastructure improvements via science and technology; to upgrade and repair our physical infrastructures (highways and bridges and dams; air traffic control…); or to improve and maintain our education infrastructure;
  • leaving us at precipice of severe recession (maybe depression) so awful economists and financial analysts are reluctant to discuss it because they do not want to create fear.

Yes, President Bush has successfully emasculated the financial health of United States for years to come. What President has done more to do a worse job at leadership and executive oversight while not keeping fundamental economy strong – while not keeping the middle-class strong?  No one. Bush is in a league of his own.

Yes, President Bush, we will remember your poor leadership and management.

Senate Vote Misguided, maybe Foolish

Posted by Reed on Thursday, October 2, 2008

This is draft of email I sent to each of my Ohio Senators. Yesterday they both voted in favor of rescue plan. Yes, I’ve added rhetoric for effect (we can’t not vote forever!). It seems our Senators want to keep helping the cheating culture. It appears more and more, every day, majority of Senators are part of the cheating and dishonesty. I pray, despite Obama’s affirmative vote he is an honest man.

Stupid and Foolish: That’s how you voted.
HELP MAIN STREET – DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.
I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR YOU
    or your hand picked replacement, ever. (see below).
You are cheating Main Street!!!!!!
You are aiding and abetting Wall Street crimes and cheating culture.
I am sufficiently well educated to understand your vote is misguided at best. I say foolish. You are trying to instill confidence by pushing a rope! I agree with Robert Reish (http://robertreich.blogspot.com/2008/09/bailout-of-all-bailouts-is-bad-idea.html).
You are throwing Main Street bones (increase of FDIC insurance, tax cuts) because they do essentially nothing to help current crisis.

HELP MAIN STREET – DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR – with law passed by the time rescue package is passed (Friday?) is only way for you to redeem yourself.

Bailout Healthy Main St – No Money for Garbage Wall St!

Posted by Reed on Wednesday, October 1, 2008

If you like this, copy and paste to your representative. You can find your representative at http://www.visi.com/juan/congress/ or http://www.congressmerge.com/ . Remember to keep your emails short and concise if you want any chance of them being read. Remember to put your headline, your main point, in first short sentence.

Bailout Healthy Main St – No Money for Garbage Wall St!
  Main St is: Individuals, small and medium businesses.
Dollar for dollar!
  At least bailout Main St in same amount as Wall St.
GOODIES (throwing a bone) IS NOT REAL HELP to Main St.
No more George Bush crap economics.
I believe situation is severe.
Making Main St PAY TWICE for their businesses, homes, automobiles, and student loans IS WRONG.
Let the businesses that made bad decisions fail or be bought.
Let well managed businesses take place of poorly lead ones even if replacement businesses are currently smaller than big garbage.
