Pelosi and the Amerikan Socialists Speak Out

The Party Is Over


"THIS IS NOT A DEMOCRATIC BILL", Nancy Pelosi 9/28/08

That’s right. It’s over. San Fran Nan was in her faded glory today, laying down the new rules for all the comrades in the finance industry. Socialism has arrived with a heavy hand, and Nancy P was there to rub salt into the wounds as hard as she could while doing her end zone victory dance. The woman is a red. There can be no doubt about it at all.

“The party is over. The party is over for this compensation for CEOs who their golden parachute as they drive their companies into the ground. The party is over for the disparity in our country between the CEOs making almost immoral salaries and not being interested in lifting other people up. The party is over for financial institutions taking risks but at the same time privatizing any gains they may have while they nationalize the risks asking the taxpayers to pick up the tab. So we can’t even consider any legislation that the Republicans send us unless it ends, addresses, and reforms compensation for chief executives, officers; unless it has protection for the taxpayers, that’s our responsibility. Certainly we want to stabilize the market, but we want to do so at the same time as we protect the taxpayers. We want to insulate everyday Americans from the crisis on Wall Street. In order to do that we must have independent oversight. The party is over for this no regulation, no supervision, anything goes, so called free market which has taken us to this place. Clearly the Bush economic policies have failed. Do we need any further evidence?

Not to put too fine a point on it, but isn’t “no regulation, no supervision, anything goes” the basic definition of a “so-called” free market? So part of the Pelosi Fix will include a Ben ‘n Jerry’s salary cap for all the Big Bosses. And lots of Big Brother oversight and rules and regulations. Financial institutions take risks. That’s what they are there for. It’s called investing. And, please correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this bailout the government’s idea? Or did the big houses come to Uncle Sugar, hat in hand on bended knee?

Yes, I think these guys are paid way too much. By about 4 extra zeros on their paychecks. And I think the guys who trash a company and then bail with millions ought to be shot. And I think these incentive payments to executives is way out of proportion. But that’s what goes on in private business. It isn’t any of the governments business. So, while I might ordinarily agree with Ms. Pelosi on these items, I’m going to call her out and label her the nearest thing there is next to a communist. Because she WON’T stop playing the blame game on this. Lizzen up beyotch: you are ALL to blame. You. Reid. Bush. Wall Street. Washington. Fix the mess. Fix it now. Don’t add a single bacon slice worth of pork to the package. Not a dollar. And then resign in disgrace. Seppuku comes to mind, but I’m not sure you had any honor to lose in the first place, so that’s too easy an out for all of you. You ALL let this happen, made it happen, watched it happen ... and played partisan politics and blocked a myriad of bills for YEARS that would have stopped or at least mitigated this disaster. So sod off. You’re Firedtm. Now go away. Leave now, and never come back!

Shocking Video Unearthed Democrats in their own words Covering up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam that caused our Economic Crisis

Democrats in their own words Covering up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam that caused our Economic Crisis.

At a 2004 hearing see Democrat after Democrat covering up and attacking the regulations to protect Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (their Cash Cows) that are now destroying our economy because the Democrats let them cheat.

VIP Dems, especially Chris Dodd, got bargain mortgages through Countrywide, all this was reported last June. The Dems are two faced crooks!

If you do your homework, you will find that the Democrats passed laws in 1977, and then in 1998 that confirmed that mortgages will be backed by the US government (taxpayers). Even when the Bush Admin tried to change it, Dodd and Frank stopped the move. This is what happens when the government controls and forces loans to be given to people who cannot afford a mortgage. Reno threatened legal action if this wasn't done by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Not to mention the amount of campaign funding given to these folks and Obama by FM/FM over the years. No wonder people want this to keep going (Main St. vs Wall St.). Let the markets take care of this!

Listen very carefully the statement Pelosi makes, "This is not a Democratic Bill"!

Then you can draw upon the fact that since the government wants to get into the market indicates
even more Socialist behavior in the future.

Financial services US government bailout bill online

US lawmakers the financial service have posted on the internet their draft legislation for the $700 billion bailout to rescue the US financial sector.

The bill which is more than 100 pages long is posted on the websites of the House Finance Committee which you can find at and the website of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as they have been in-undated with worried people logging on both sites have been seriously overloaded.

US Homeowners Soon To Be Evicted By Chinese Police Under New Law

Treasury Would Emerge With Vast New Power --The secretary can choose to bail out foreign central banks. [This is absolute bullsh*t.] 29 Sep 2008 During its weeklong deliberations, Congress made many changes to the Bush regime’s original proposal to bail out the financial industry, but one overarching aspect of the initial plan that remains is the vast discretion it gives to the Treasury secretary. The draft legislation, which will be put to a House vote on Monday, gives Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. and his successor extraordinary power to decide how the $700 billion bailout fund is spent. Mr. Paulson can choose to buy from any financial institution that does business in the United States, or from pension funds, with wide discretion over what he will buy and how much he will pay. Under some conditions, the secretary can choose to bail out foreign central banks.

Still No Bailout - Lipstick on Pig Edition By Bob Fertik 28 Sep 2008 (1) Call your Representatives and Senators at 800-473-6711 or 202-224-3121 and say No Bailout! (2) Email them too. After a week of high-drama negotiations, Congress and Hank Paulson issued Bailout version 1.1, which is just the original Paulson pig with a lot of lipstick.

Golden parachutes here to stay --Advocates of financial rescue trumpet end to big exit packages for execs. But many leaving troubled firms that get help will still get to take a bundle with them. 28 Sep 2008 Many advocates of the proposed $700 billion bailout of Wall Street trumpet its limitations on large pay packages and so-called golden parachutes for some of the top executives at the troubled firms that will get help. Barack Obama and John McCain [both *useless*], in endorsing the rescue plan, pointed to the restrictions on Wall Street pay... Under the bill, Wall Street executives who already have golden parachutes are likely to keep them even if their companies get government help. "We're not abrogating contracts," said a Treasury official who briefed reporters Sunday.

The Rich Are Staging a Coup This Morning By Michael Moore 29 Sep 2008 The biggest robbery in the history of this country is taking place as you read this. Though no guns are being used, 300 million hostages are being taken. Make no mistake about it: After stealing a half trillion dollars to line the pockets of their war-profiteering backers for the past five years, after lining the pockets of their fellow oilmen to the tune of over a hundred billion dollars in just the last two years, Bush and his cronies -- who must soon vacate the White House -- are looting the U.S. Treasury of every dollar they can grab... Having read further the details of this bailout bill, you need to know you are being lied to. They talk about how they will prevent golden parachutes. It says NOTHING about what these executives and fat cats will make in SALARY... There is no direct ownership given to the American people for the money being handed over. Foreign banks and investors will be allowed to receive billion-dollar handouts. A large chunk of this $700 billion is going to be given directly to Chinese and Middle Eastern banks... The Dems handed a stolen election over to Bush. The Dems gave Bush the votes he needed to invade a sovereign country. Once they took over Congress in 2007, they refused to pull the plug on the war. And now they have been cowered into being accomplices in the crime of the century. You have to call them now and say "NO!"
