Dear Prez and Dems: Wall Street wants your panties in a twist

I don’t know if anybody besides Wall Street Watchers have noticed that the Stock Market dropped for three days in a row and that “marked its worst single-session percentage drop in more than two months. ”  Well, maybe that’s not precisely true.  President Obama and the Congressional Democrats have probably noticed.   Whether they will quiver and moan or foam at the mouth is anybody’s guess.  Judging from their past behavior and the fear they exhibit upon viewing their own shadows,  they may fold again and beg forgiveness from the All Powerful.

(No, not the Deity.  Wall Street.)

I’d like to address all the Democrats for a moment:

You knew this was coming.  And if you didn’t, you aren’t the brightest bulbs on the porch.  Wall Streeters are attempting blackmail.  They want your panties in a twist, they want to see you shivering in your penny loafers because A) they’ve paid you good money, which implies they own you; B) if they made you–and they think they did–they can break you;  C) they’ve convinced you that the market runs the entire economy.

Do not pay attention to the Little Men Behind The Curtain. Go ahead and resurrect the Glass-Steagall Act, or bring to life something even better.   Yes, Republicans and Blue Dogs will call you  Frankenstein and your baby a monster, but you know better.   Really, you do.  You can’t allow Wall Street to hold you hostage to its evil plan; you can’t let Wall Street keep making the same mistakes that plunged our economy into ruin.  And you most certainly won’t win any more votes from Main Street by doing the Little Men any more favors.

Do yourselves a favor,  do us all a favor:  find the people who played with derivatives and default credit  swaps and what all else, take away their toys for good.  Then prosecute the bastards who broke the law, who defrauded plain ol’ Americans and pounded them into the ground with rubber mallets labeled “Death. by Debt.”  Remember The Guy In Orange?   Remember the folks who own and run World Savings?  Or who used to be Countrywide?  Yup,  them,  their buddies,  and the horses they rode in on.  Take wooden stakes, preferably some with nasty thorns, to the blood suckers.

But don’t let Wall Street scare you.  The Streeters may have more money, but we have more votes.

P.S.  Please do not assume that the economy is the only reason Scott Brown got elected.  There are way too many groups here under the bus for the voters’ wrath to be all about that.

Who’s the biggest idiot of the day?

Yeah, I know. I’ve been gone a long time.

There are limits to my patience.   I could not watch the Obama administration mishandling the progressive agenda by abandoning most promises made during the campaign without wanting to rant and hiss and scream.  That doesn’t make for good blogging, now does it.  (Not really a question. Hence, the lack of usually appropriate punctuation.)

Well, today I’m back for a quickie.  I’d like to say that Evan Bayh* is  carping dumbass fool  inane if he imagines that Coakley lost in Massachusetts because the Democrats’ agenda is too progressive.

Progressive? Where?   Show me progressive, Evan, you idiot.

Lemme see, Dems kowtowed to Olympia Snowe and heeded the growls of Blue Dogs in crafting the health care bill, which is now a tremendous flop, a giveaway to Insurance and Big Pharma because of some deal Obama made with those industries behind closed doors,  and looks to get even  worse. Witness:  allowing Catholic bishops to influence legislation with respect to abortion.   Now Barney Frank admits the bills deserves to be in the crapper, but still wants to work with Snowe & Friends.   Mmmmm, that tastes progressive!  ( My ass, it is.)

Bush II gave tons of taxpayer money away and Obama let the same jerks  (and their friends) who ran this country into ruin by repealing necessary bank regulations continue to wreak havoc and ruin.  Just you wait. It’ll happen.  The Dems let the banks continue to make the same mistakes and pay vast bonuses in the wake of  the country’s economic disaster just to show voters on Main Street that we don’t matter.   Obama’s only response to the banks’ largesse, sheerly political in nature and kinda dumb for a smart guy, was taxing the banks to allegedly pay back the American people when anyone with half a brain knows the banks will pass the expense on to consumers.  (Thankssoverymuch,  Barack.  You’re a chump peach.)

Naturally, Cosmo poster boy  Scott Brown is such a narcissist he thinks his win is B I G G E R than a slap in the face to Obama and progressives, while progressive polls show that voters who backed Obama are still behind the reforms,  but don’t believe the Democratic party can stand and deliver. Ya think?  It’s Massachusetts, Brownie.  That’s where liberals go to die.

Obviously, Evan didn’t know.  Or he wouldn’t have been so stupid and let it go to print.  Same with Barney, who used to be a liberal.  Goddess knows what happened to him. (Head injury?) And our fave poster boy, Scotty Brown.  I thought you had to be smart to get into law school. Maybe not.

So who’s the biggest idiot?  Well, the day is young yet.


* Just Google “Evan Bayh is an idiot” and you’ll see what I mean.
