Oppose the bailout NOW!!!

In case you missed it, here is the transcript of Bush convincing Americans that there are WMDs in Iraq...oh, sorry, that we need a Wall Street bailout.  I just wonder why Americans aren't screaming and yelling at this plan.  Many Americans don't have health insurance.  Mom and Pop businesses fail every day.  Folks from the aftermath of New Orleans still are waiting for the new and improved city that Bush promised.  And on and on.  Yet taxpayers are expected to bail out the theives on Wall Street that ran their companies into the ground. So they made bad investments.  If Mr. and Mrs. Average American invest poorly does the Fed come along and bail them out?  If Mr. and Mrs. Average American can't pay their credit car bills or car payments does the Fed bail them out?  


The answer is simple.  They are thinking about their buddies on Wall Street. They are thinking about the lobbyists who control them.  Or they are just plain not thinking at all.

Why does Dennis Kucinich ask for 5 minutes on the floor of Congress, speak for 1 minute and thirty seconds against the bailout, then get gaveled off the floor? And where are all the senators and congressmen that should be working? Kucinich was speaking to an empty chamber.  Can you not show up to work any time you please?

Why are Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich NOT the presidential nominees? Clearly they think outside the Washington box. They make too much sense. They are interested in protecting our rights. They see the mistaken thinking of the present administration.  

Write to your Senator and oppose the bailout.  Write to your Congressperson and oppose the bailout.

Too funny!!!

POEHLER AS COURIC: "And how do you do that exactly?"

FEY AS PALIN: "Every morning, when Alaskans wake up, one of the first things they do, is look outside to see if there are any Russians hanging around. And if there are, you gotta go up to them and ask, 'What are you doing here?' and if they can't give you a good reason, it's our responsibility to say, you know, 'Shoo! Get back over there!'

POEHLER AS COURIC: "Senator McCain attempted to shut down his political campaign this week in order to deal with the economic crisis. What's your opinion of this potential 700 billion dollar bailout?"

FEY AS PALIN: "Like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this. We're saying, 'Hey, why bail out Fanny and Freddie and not me?' But ultimately what the bailout does is, help those that are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy to's gotta be all about job creation, too. Also, too, shoring up our economy and putting Fannie and Freddy back on the right track and so healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reigning in spending...'cause Barack Obama, y'know...has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans, also, having a dollar value meal at restaurants. That's gonna help. But one in five jobs being created today under the umbrella of job creation. That, you know...Also..."

POEHLER AS COURIC: "What lessons have you learned from Iraq and how specifically, would you spread democracy abroad?"

FEY AS PALIN: "Specifically, we would make every effort possible to spread democracy abroad to those who want it."

POEHLER AS COURIC: "Yes, but specifically what would you do?"

FEY AS PALIN: "We're gonna promote freedom. Usher in democratic values and ideals. And fight terror-loving terrorists."

POEHLER AS COURIC: "But again, and not to belabor the point. One specific thing."

(several seconds of FEY and POEHLER staring at each other)

FEY AS PALIN: "Katie, I'd like to use one of my lifelines."


FEY AS PALIN: "I want to phone a friend."

POEHLER AS COURIC: "You don't have any lifelines."

FEY AS PALIN: "Well in that case I'm gonna just have to get back to you!"
