Interesting email I got from the people that run the internet grocer:

This will probably earn me some more "unsubscribe" requests .... and I don't usually do this. But the 2008 presidential election is so close, and the info in this email is so accurate and succinct, that I decided to copy-and-paste it and send it to you guys. It's a reply I got from our October newsletter. It's definitely worth reading and passing around!

This [bailout] bill is nothing short of socialism. Let's take a look what was added to the "rescue bill." Guess the goverment just had to add "incentives" to get the bill passed. I call it Black mail. Why hasn't Pelosi called for an investigation into why these companies failed? Enron cronies were arrested for fraud, weren't they? Who is checking into this mess? No one! Lord help us all!
New Tax earmarks in Bailout bill
- Film and Television Productions (Sec. 502)
- Wooden Arrows designed for use by children (Sec. 503)
- 6 page package of earmarks for litigants in the 1989 Exxon Valdez incident, Alaska (Sec. 504)
Tax earmark “extenders” in the bailout bill.
- Virgin Island and Puerto Rican Rum (Section 308)
- American Samoa (Sec. 309)
- Mine Rescue Teams (Sec. 310)
- Mine Safety Equipment (Sec. 311)
- Domestic Production Activities in Puerto Rico (Sec. 312)
- Indian Tribes (Sec. 314, 315)
- Railroads (Sec. 316)
- Auto Racing Tracks (317)
- District of Columbia (Sec. 322)
- Wool Research (Sec. 325)

Who is Penny Pritzker? -

Pritzker is the national finance chair of Obama’s presidential campaign. She’s from one of America’s richest families, the founders of the Hyatt hotel chain, and is herself the 135th richest person in America.

She also has an ugly history as the former chair of Superior Bank in Illinois, which (1) was created thanks to a giant S&L bailout by the government; (2) then helped invent the securitization of subprime mortgages; and (3) then collapsed in 2001 thanks to massive financial chicanery.

Interestingly, she lives in a fancy Chicago neighborhood just a short stroll away from Austan Goolsbee, a University of Chicago professor who’s one of Obama’s main economic advisors. It’s really quite wonderful how Goolsbee can maintain his deep admiration for the Free Market while living a few blocks away from billionaires who use massive government power to create and subsidize their businesses. / site / news.cfm?newsid=20144349...
Let me explain my opinion, as gleaned from Fox News Radio 97.1 FM.

Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, champions of the underprivileged and downtrodden, decided everyone should own a house. Their desires were bolstered by Chris Dodd, Charlie Wrangle and Barney Frank. Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac were specifically developed to handle these housing loans and mortgages.

In order to increase business and profit, buyers were directed to overstate their earnings and appraisers were directed to appraise above actual value. Banks were threatened with penalties if they did not grant the loan. For the record: Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac were generous to their friends.

Chris Dodd got $700,000.

Barack Obama got $700,000.

From Bruce: Maybe you've heard that a lawsuit has been filed (by a Democrat, BTW), and a federal judge has ordered, Obama to produce a genuine copy of his birth certificate to prove he is eligible to run for president. Apparently there's enough evidence "out there" showing he's not a natural-born citizen, and therefore not eligible to run for president.

At least we live in interesting times!

guess I should invest in the wool industry. I think the only way those clowns will even touch a bill is if you tie a pork chop or 2 to it.

The first bill was a real crap sandwich ...The second bill was a crap sandwich without the bread and a side order of more crap.
