we can live beside the ocean
linger far behind
swim out past the breaker
watch the world die ~ Everclear, Santa Monica*
Do you think the 700,000,000,000PLUS is not going to be given to Paulson? Because no matter how much the people are against it, it's going to be passed by Congress because Congress, other high members of Government and Captains of Industry are involved in Class Warfare against You. They are tied to the Upper Ruling Class which dominates and controls the nation.
Average American Warren Buffett explains why he invested 5,000,000,000 to Goldman Sachs, "If I didn't think the government was going to act, I would not be doing anything this week. I might be trying to undo things this week. I am, to some extent, betting on the fact that the government will do the rational thing here and act promptly. It would be a mistake to be buying anything now if the government was going to walk away from the Paulson proposal."
So the news stories at first will highlight the steely resolve of Congress. And there will be some "heated" C-Span moments with accusations, prepared speeches, wild gesticulations designed to invoke the reverental feeling of awe in you for your Representative or Senator, but it's all a facade. It won't matter how many letters, phone calls and emails Congress receives. After a few weeks (maybe a couple months) of this charade, everyone will get on board and allow The Ruling Class to set up to the podium and declare, We are passing the Rescue Plan which will also help you the little people. And there shall be much rejoicing!
But if, for some reason, the people don't accept their god appointed place as footstools for their economic and social betters, The Ruling Class will whip up some other non-issue or a New War to divert your attention and pass through whatever tax steal they wish, while you were sleeping.
