Anger, Lawlessness Fueling U.S., Global Economic Revolution?

March 26, 2009

Some might say, “The ends justify the means.”

Some might say the “anarchists” seen at global economic leadership conferences are now getting what they wanted; what they protested for.

Today two Washington Post reporters said the President of the United States is “attempting to harness public anger over the financial crisis” to pass his budget.

Obama Buys Into Anger, Fear as Political Tool

Are we setting the future course of the United States and the world based upon anger?  And if so, is that a good way to plan our future and the debt burden for our children and grandchildren?

And hasn’t the president himself fueled this anger expressing “outrage” at the AIG bonusus that were protected in his stimulus and known about for months by the Fed and Treasury (and Chris Dodd)?

So now the president wants to “bypass the traditional media and speak directly to the people?”  Why?  To fan and further fuel the anger?

French Worker Release Factory Head After Lay Off Threat

French workers released a manager of U.S. manufacturer 3M held hostage for two days in a labor dispute over layoffs, the company said Thursday, amid rising French unemployment and public outrage at employers.

A new poll indicated that French worker frustration remains high, with a majority of respondents predicting more violent incidents in response to the economic crisis. The hostage-taking was one of many recent efforts by French workers to protest the downturn.

Workers at a 3M factory in Pithiviers locked manager Luc Rousselet in an office Tuesday, demanding better severance packages for those laid off and better conditions for those who keep their jobs.

After discussions Wednesday that ran into the night, Rousselet was released overnight, company spokeswoman Catherine Hamon said. Rousselet, unharmed, then left the factory grounds.

Pelosi, Rangel rushing to tax AIG and other bonuses 90%; This caused a revolution once…

March 19, 2009

Punishment by tax is unconstitutional becaue that is the kind of trickery pulled to punish our Founders the colonists: by the King of England.

So are the Democrats sure they want to vote on a 90% tax for AIG and others like them?

Guess who loves this good thinking?  Nancy Pelosi and Charlie Rangel.

These guys are eating my lunch….

Second idea; the Democrats want to rush this to a vote in the House: the same kind of brainless conduct that brought us the stimulus and the AIG bonuses in the first place.

“Give me a f *&$%# ing break.”

Democrats are rushing through a legally questionable tax on employee bonuses from bailed-out firms to paper over the failure of the Obama administration and key lawmakers to stop those payouts, Republicans charged Thursday.

“The Democratic bill brought to the floor today is constitutionally questionable,” said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind. “It’s obviously a transparent attempt to divert attention away from the truth that Democrats in Congress and this administration made these bonus payments possible.”

Democrats rushed a bill to the House floor on Thursday to levy a 90 percent tax on bonuses paid to employees with family incomes above $250,000 at companies that have received at least $5 billion in government bailout money. A vote was expected later Thursday.

“We figured that the local and state governments would take care of the other 10 percent,” said Rep. Charles Rangel of New York, chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee.
