Folks, you must, must, must read the Roll Call story about how House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt wants to worsen the market crisis, and talk down the economy. You must listen the audio link below to hear how Gephardt prays for more economic bad news so the Democratic Party can win in November. Roll Call reports that he thinks he could pick up as many as 40 House seats if these scandals "can be kept on the political radar screen until November."
They're going to make millions of Americans suffer, lose their jobs, and watch their life savings wither so Democrats can regain power over a nation they see as idiots, as I covered in Tuesday's inspired monologue Liberal Elitists Think America is a Mistake. All these wealthy liberals like Jon Corzine think they're entitled to rule.
But have you noticed that there's not a wealth tax? There's an income tax to keep people from becoming wealthy, but there's not a wealth tax. They love taxing people into average, middle class, or poor status so they'll come crying to Washington for help.
They're talking down the economy, which is up, and they're making a big deal out of these corporate scandals. Roll Call quotes another Democrat as hoping and praying for another WorldCom to hit in September!
This mad dash, with spineless Republicans on board, to pass the Sarbanes bill and other senseless legislation is going to end up doing more damage to the markets and economy than a bunch of crooked CEOs and accountants ever could. When Gephardt says he can pick up 30 or 40 seats, "if it plays out right," he means if everything gets worse. How rotten must your ideas be if that's the only way you can get elected?
These Guys are Praying for Mass Economic Failure
Rep. Max Sandlin (D-TX) said, "I think there's a good chance the Republicans will be turned out of power and the Democrats will be given a chance to get at this cowboy mentality in corporate America." They can't wait for their chance to deliver a deathblow to capitalism and corporate America - and to set themselves up as leaders of a giant, government nanny state. They'll stop the motor that moves the world that hires people and makes jobs, all for political gain!
This has been the Democratic Party since FDR. They are getting so arrogant they don't mind allowing people to actually see in print that this is what they really hope, want and think. One top strategist for the Democrats told Roll Call, "If you drop another WorldCom thing in September the Republicans are really [screwed]." How do you drop another WorldCom? You make one up! You lie! You simply issue a charge, fax it to CNN and the New York Times, and it'll lead every broadcast for the next three days. That's how easy it is to work for the DNC.
Of course, it's also easy to work at the DNC Screw America Factory because the Republicans aren't defending themselves. They're jumping on the bandwagon so that they're not targets for Democrats in the election campaign; they should know by now that strategy never works! Gephardt knows it, which is why he cited a B.S. column in the New York Times by Paul Krugman that accused Bush of shady land dealings and cronyism in Texas. The total lack of evidence didn't matter.
The Democrats at this very moment are not working to improve the circumstances that have damaged your 401(k). Democrats want you miserable and dependent. Look at what they've done to the African-American population in this country.
And don't think that the Dems can't keep this issue alive if there's no truth to it. They convinced people that Republicans wanted to rip school lunches from kids' mouths when they actually increased funding by 6.5%., and blamed Republicans for a government shutdown orchestrated by Bill Clinton and the federal employees union. They lied away an entire decade of prosperity in the 80s - and they'll try to lie a bad economy into reality too.
It's not that many conservatives want to "get" the big corprorations; they're just not going to see "going easy" on corporate America as "defending capitalism."
In many ways, there are NONE so anti-Capitalist and pro-Big Government as the largest corporations.
They would LOVE to have the sort of "crony capitalism" that many of the socialist democracies enjoy.
I agree. The strength of our economy is with small businesses. Corporations should be limited to be 3 levels deep, and outlawed from shutting down any business they take over for at least 3 years.
I don't listen to Rush as much as I used to btw. I still respect him--even more since his ordeal with his hearing--but he seems to me (just an impression, mind you) to have gotten off on a "high-falutin'" tear of late.
USed to, he'd have whole shows dedicated to individual people who pursued their dreams and gained success however they wished to measure it from that pursuit.
Now, we're more likely to hear about the mega-moguls that Rush knows. Yes, yes, all fine and good, but I don't look at someone like, say, Bob McNair the new owner of the Houston Texans NFL expansion team, as the same as the millions of Americans who don't have to keep current personal connections with Senators and Presidential cabinet members to further their business interests.
I mean, I'm not for "soaking the rich," but I figure they're all big boys and girls and can take care of themselves. I don't have to whine for them.
