You've already given hundreds of billions to banking and finance companies -- and hardly demanded anything. Yet you balk at the very idea of giving $25 billion to the Detroit Three. Heck, you shoveled that exact amount to Citigroup -- $25 billion -- just weeks ago, and that place is about to crumble anyhow.

Does the word "hypocrisy" ring a bell?

The $70 per hour myth

As Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) pointed out during congressional hearings last week, "There is apparently a cultural condition that's more ready to accept aid to a white-collar industry than the blue-collar industry, and that has to be confronted." ...

One Trillion Dollar Deficit for 2008

"A trillion-dollar deficit is not only something you wouldn't have seen in an economic textbook, it is something that even a science fiction writer would not dare mention," said Stan Collender, one of the nation's most re spected budget analysts, who was a budget staffer for both the House and Senate and now works for a Washington corporate communications company. ...

That's over $3,000 for every American!

No Hurry?

President Bush has been noticeably absent from the machinations aimed at righting the nation's financial course. Analysts and key players differ over whether President-elect Barack Obama should get his economic team in place and take charge, or sit back and await his turn at the helm.

"Somebody has to speak up soon," said CNN senior political analyst David Gergen, explaining that he understands why Americans are growing anxious and yearning for direction and leadership. ...

The collapse of GM would cost the government as much as $200 billion should the biggest U.S. automaker be forced to liquidate, Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Global Insight Inc. in Lexington, Massachusetts, estimates.

A GM failure would mean “more aid to specific states like Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana, and more money into unemployment and extended benefits,” Behravesh said Nov. 15. ...

Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana delivered for Obama. Will he reciprocate?

2.5 Million Worthless Jobs

U.S. auto companies employ nearly a quarter-million workers, and more than 730,000 other people have jobs producing the materials and parts that go into cars. About 1 million on top of that work in dealerships nationwide. If just one of the auto giants were to go belly up, some estimates put U.S. job losses next year as high as 2.5 million. ...

1 million jobs lost at $1,000 is $1 billion dollars.

Isn't $25,000 per job a sound investment?

If 2.5 million jobs are lost, it is $10,000 per job!

Suggestion: Let Wall Street Stock Brokers, Fund Managers, Traders, ... work the production lines at the GM, Ford & Chrysler.

Nothing for 3 million jobs?

$700 Billion Bailout for Wall Street but GOP proposes NOTHING for GM where:

three million people would lose their jobs ...

Thursday, November 13, 2008


For all his defense of markets, Bush this year extended the reach of government by backing bailouts of American International Group Inc., Bear Stearns Cos., Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. His administration is also implementing a $700 billion financial rescue program which U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson yesterday shifted toward relieving pressure on consumer credit, scrapping an effort to buy devalued mortgage assets.

Still, Bush argued today that government intervention isn't a ``cure-all'' and that the crisis was caused by failures among investors, regulators and governments rather than the free-market model. He said steps taken so far by governments and central banks were thawing credit markets and stabilizing financial conditions, although he acknowledged ``more difficult days ahead.''

Officials overseas have heaped blame on the U.S. and the notion of unfettered markets promoted by Bush for sparking the turbulence.

Well Said

``It was interesting to watch him go upstairs,'' Bush said of Obama's visit. ``He wanted to see where his little girls were going to sleep. Clearly, this guy is going to bring a sense of family to the White House, and I hope Laura and I did the same thing. But I believe he will, and I know his girls are on his mind and he wants to make sure that first and foremost, he is a good dad.'' ...
The $54 Trillion Gorilla

As bad as it is, the situation could get far worse. At the House hearing, Rep. Jim Cooper, a more conservative Democrat from Tennessee, brandished a copy of the official Financial Report of the United States Government, which outlines the $54 trillion fiscal gap, primarily unfunded liabilities, ...
