Last Chance to Stop Wall Street Bailout and Bicycle Credit Bill

The senate passed the bailout, with Obama and McCain virtually holding hands and, as we have said, when push comes to shove there is really no difference between the men; government is their answer.

McCain a fiscal conservative? Right.

Your last chance to stop the Wall Street Bailout and Bicycle Assistance bill is in the house. Let your member of the house of representatives know how you feel...though it no longer appears any of them care.

Good luck, and do not underestimate the value of luck in a socialist economy, which is where we seem to be heading.

Some of what McCain and Obama supported in senate bill:

  • $223M for Alaskan fisherman

  • $192M for rum producers in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands

  • $128M for auto racing tracks

  • $33M for companies operating in American Samoa

  • $10M for film & TV production

  • $6M for producers of wooden arrows



It is a porker, and we are on the hook. This spells doom for the economy, unless you are getting a couple hundred million for your fishing or rum business, or to build race tracks.
