The Art of Politics

 

Jim Kirwan

 

01/10/08 "ICH" -- 30/09/08 -- - This morning Bush went back to the microphones to again trash the public for failing to approve of his strong-arm plan to bailout his buddies and to screw the people. ‘Politics must be kept out of this’ has been the constant refrain from the bunch of pretenders who appointed themselves to fix this problem. But “Politics” is not about democrats and republicans it’s about what people think, and it’s about anything that will directly impact the real and long-term futures or millions of ordinary people. What these criminals fail to understand is that: The act of breathing is political!

 

Overlooked in the dictator’s tirade was the fact that the negotiations in Washington are only between the White House, the congress and the Corporate Oligarchs that created this fiasco: Their ‘conversations’ and this legislation have shut-out the public; especially those that have everything to lose. Bush said again that he was trying to reach the American people and to get them to ‘get them on board’ as if the public could still be asleep. What is clear is that the public wants this problem solved; they simply do not believe that there is anything in this giveaway to the criminal-establishment that will change anything about their lives: except to make everything worse, for them!

 

This triad of criminals that are negotiating with themselves have all underestimated the public that has been bleeding badly since Cheney-Bush stole their first election. And now that the last act of this Coup has arrived, the public has finally drawn their-own line in the sand because they have realized that unless the public is ‘bailed-out’ they will die! There will also be no one left to do anything to create the huge profits which the criminals are fighting over. The Bushwhacker gave himself away when he said “it doesn’t matter how legislation gets done” because it does matter, greatly!

  

Bush went on about how ‘this ‘failure’ will affect job creation and the availability of credit to start new businesses and it would affect credit card rates and the savings of ordinary people’ and basically that by not agreeing to this blackmail of the public by the same people that created the crisis: the public would be hurting themselves. Bush failed to remember that there are no jobs creation programs, we have no opportunities, and that the banks and their owners have been playing Russian roulette with interest rates throughout the last eight years! There are millions of people in need of intervention now, to save their homes, to avoid bankruptcy, and to be able to keep a job to be able to feed their families. None of which this Paulson-Bernanke-Bush Slush-Fund for the rich will do!

 

Government’s job is to provide for the needs of the country—in this instance that would involve real and immediate help to those who lost everything because the government allowed these financial goons to play fast and lose with every rule of law and commerce—it is the government sanctioned criminals that should be left to die, and not the sheep that failed to scream, back when this all began. The ordinary people that the criminals used to create this monster, ought to be assisted with their survival and not further insulted by this government’s love affair with every criminal-scheme and con-artist that ever tried to buy a vote! There is nothing in this vile legislation that addresses any of the truth, of what must be done to fix the disaster that this government created from their own lust for profits and power in the short-run.  

“REP. DENNIS KUCINICH: This is a copy of the bill which will provide for a $700 billion bailout of Wall Street. It has provisions in it where it talks about helping homeowners, but when you read the fine print, you see it has language like “may” instead of “shall” and “encouraging” instead of “mandating” help for the millions of homeowners who are worried right now about whether they’re going to lose their home. There’s no help for them in this.

So what we have here is a rescue plan that essentially gives all the speculators a bailout and puts the bad debts in the custody of the government. The president of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank has said that this plan could create a fiscal chasm, says that the problem isn’t tight monetary policy, it’s the reckless behavior of some of these investors who have now found themselves in a position where a government bailout is going to help reward their bad behavior.” (1)

The stark reality that is never mentioned anywhere, is that what is called The government here, no longer represents the people of this country!

So when the government says “this money will be paid back,” meaning that the government will be paid back—the public knows that this means only that the criminals will profit even further and that the dying citizens will not get any of the real assistance that they must have immediately!

 

For this “government” to have so clearly misread both the import and the targets of this crisis, while at the same time refusing all input from the public that will be forced to pay trillions for the bailouts of those that are their blood-enemies: This constitutes yet another major-crime against the American public. Yesterday the DOW dropped 777.68!  This was the direct result of the public having informed the criminal-co-conspirators in congress that if the congress gives Bush and his co-conspirators what they say they want, then it will be their asses on the line as well as the war-criminals in public office! The badly-wounded public will take the losses rather than commit outright suicide by caving into what Bush says we all MUST do!

 

There has never been a greater failure in leadership, in this country, then what this collection of criminals and felons that Bush has assembled to “represent” the government of the United States has done to the public they supposedly serve. This problem too needs an immediate answer and several possibilities are out there in the wings, just waiting to be recognized. However since none of the triad in these ‘negotiations’ believes that any particulars in this GIVEAWAY should be shared, with the general public, then this legislation will continue to be rejected. The money being stolen here belongs to the taxpayers, not to Goldman-Sachs and this theft is ostensibly being done in the public’s name without offering the ‘public’ even any crumbs from the sumptuous table of our self-appointed owners.

 

What happened yesterday Mr. Bush, while you were slouching in your chair, in disheveled disarray, was that the public finally found a way to tell you and your buddies to go straight to Hell—that is real politics in action!

 

What is at stake here is who and what will be left standing after this outrage runs its course, I’m betting it will be the people themselves, and not that band of commercial-mercenaries that have claimed title to everything that all the rest of us have had to earn!

 

The sheep are getting restless, just as the new crop of replacements to continue this unholy Empire are trying to run for office—the timing of this collapse was intended to instill fear and doubt—but all this has really done is to show the public what “government of, by, and for the corporations” really looks like when things get up-close and personal!
