Holy Economic Plunder, Batman!

Hopefully President Barack Obama brings his bat cape, mobile and...oh yeah, Robin. Looks like he's going to need it because it appears we are under siege.

Was Paulson's "the sky is falling" reaction in September really an attempt to win the Academy Award for best actor in a real life drama? Sure seems that way.

President Bush and Mr. Paulson's calculated move to make "sweeping changes to two decades of tax policy" which "escaped the notice of lawmakers for several days, as they remained consumed with the controversial bailout bill" was not the act of panic stricken people trying to save the economy....that's for sure.

It's looking more and more like Paulson and Bush deliberately planned to send the economy plunging into the nearest iceberg, leaving we the people, to go down with the ship. (Remember all the people locked away in the hollow, lowermost portion of a ship, floating partially submerged and supporting the remainder of the Titanic - oh yeah, I think that's called the hull - that's us.)

"They basically repealed a 22-year-old law that Congress passed as a backdoor way of providing aid to banks." -- George K. Yin, the former chief of staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation, the nonpartisan congressional authority on taxes.
Keep in mind it is the job of leadership to qwell the panic, not create it, as Paulson did when addressing the American public, practically foaming at the mouth, telling us we must ACT NOW...right now, or ELSE! And then, he and his cohorts disappear into the "Riddle Factory" for a couple of days and present us with three pages stating that he must take over the world in order to save it.

In addition, keep in mind, there were warnings galore from the very highest levels of government, from non-profit organizations such as NACA Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America and from so many others like John Bogle, Daniel Schecter, Jared Bernstein, Naomi Klein, -- and speaking of icebergs, the names I just mentioned are only the tip.
No use, Joker! I knew you'd employ your sneezing powder, so I took an Anti-Allergy Pill! Instead of a SNEEZE, I've caught YOU, COLD! - Batman
Robin: "How about rushing the place, Batman?"
Batman: "Shh. I think not, Robin. All they've done so far is stolen a few items, attempted to kill you, me, and Batgirl. No, I think they plan something really big."
Obama better take his allergy meds!
