Wondering what FDR would do?

Decades ago a lawsuit was brought against the Fed by Louis McFadden and the case may still be pending! Or perhaps it ought to be. Read more here:

And here’s a quote from FDR from his second inaugural address of Jan 20, 1937:

“I see one third of a nation ill-housed, ill-clad, and ill-nourished. The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.” –Pres. F. D. Roosevelt

He’s seeing what i’m seeing! But can you imagine a GOPer with that kind of social conscience? Or an elist snob of any stripe or spot?

Now you know that Compassionate Conservatism can’t and won’t allow a “welfare state” such as Christ teaches in the Bible, charity being a dirty word to make ‘brother’s keeper’ merely a quaint anachronism to be dispensed with in today’s ‘modern’ world.

“30s to 08″…

New Deal are you for real?

Bush and Cheney standing by.

Bwa-ha-ha!!! it’s Souplines Across America! (insert black cape of usury.)

Let’s see…on Bush’s Watch America is experiencing:

9/11 attacks engineered by his family’s associates, failure and loss, overextension, misdirected war efforts, fraud, violence and revenge, and I’m sure you can think of things to add to this list.

And you know I’m inclined to take Cheney at his word: things are going very successfully–for the rich.

So what are the odds that Cheney is one of the bettors who caused the subprime housing foreclosure/credit squeeze/market’n’dollar meltdown we enjoy today?

Toxic investments made with no regulation or oversight–brought to us by Congress, world bankers, the Fed, Wall St, and White House wheeler-dealers…scams now known as Credit Default Swaps. And the odds are in Dead-Eye’s favor that he’s one of the gambling bandits behind the mask and raking it in.

Breedy gasdards.
