America in Financial and Political Ruin

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Today from The National Post: Is this the end of America? I would say it could end in a matter of months. More and more of my friends and neighbors are stockpiling food and ammo. Some have cleaned out entirely and headed for unnamed retreats to protect their families. All we need now is the final fuse to be lit…

Meanwhile, our leaders are fomenting violence against executives and employees of AIG: We Want Names, Too, Chairman Frank. These were paid under binding, legal, Constitutional contracts and now they will be taxed at a 90% tax rate – the bonuses that is… Politicians are calling for executives to commit suicide, others are saying they should be murdered. Tours of AIG employee’s homes are occurring so they can be attacked and people are quitting AIG out of fear. Remaining workers of AIG unit endure abuse, may quit: The Buffalo News World and Nation. This is a freak show to borrow from Rush Limbaugh and Ed Morrisey at Hot Air. That describes it perfectly – it is a distraction from the 1.2 Trillion passed in the dark of night and printed as money to pump into our system. Deficit Expected to Soar to $2 Trillion This Year: Moneynews.com. From my list yesterday:

And, Glenn Beck was on a roll today pointing out that the whole AIG thing is
a diversion for the 1.2 T the government printed yesterday effectively borrowing from themselves to pay themselves. He compared it to the LAST antibiotic option before you die of a resistant staff infection. Good


Our government thinks we are idiots and they are playing us. Hiding this is like hiding an elephant in your living room. It won’t work. The Power to Tax Is the Power to Destroy – from Whiskey and Gunpowder.

UPDATE: Bonus claw back attempts anger bankers

Key excerpt:

The banker added: “This is like Russia 15 years ago. It’s like a McCarthy witch-hunt . . . This is the most profoundly anti-American thing I’ve ever seen.”

UPDATE: They Came for the AIG Bonuses, but I was not an AIG Employee…


Taxes for You and Me, but Not for Thee…

You really need to read this article: 13 companies getting bailout money owe back taxes. So, 4 or 5 of Obama’s nominees for his Cabinet are tax deadbeats and now we find out the companies getting bailout funds aren’t paying their taxes either. If it had been any one of us, trust me, we would go to debtor’s prison. But not if you are one of the liberal elite – there are different rules for them. Torch, pitchfork…
