why bother?

It seems to me this seven hundred billion dollar bailout that the Bush administration has sprung on the United States out of nowhere is the worst possible action that could be taken to try to correct the nation's financial problem.

The way I figure it, if we don't give Paulson the money and the authority that he is wangling for in an effort that even he admits is of questionable effectiveness, the United States' and the world's economies will suffer dramatically. The stock markets of the world will lose trillions of dollars of value, people will be cast into poverty and premature death around the globe, and the American taxpayer will be especially hard-hit by the depression that could result.

If we do give Paulson the money and the authority, the United States' and the world's economies will still suffer dramatically. The stock markets will still lose trillions of dollars of value and people around the world will be in horrible circumstances, and the American taxpayer will be crushed under the inflation and depression that will still result.

The only difference is that in scenario number two, the people who are currently in power and who are the ones who caused this catastrophe with their greed and their voodoo economics, will still be in power. They will still be wealthy, they will still be in control, and they will not suffer the consequences of their actions, they will be rewarded for them.


Let the fucking world crumble. Those feckless fat cats will make wonderful playthings for the killers that survive the collapse of civilization.
