When President Barack Obama signs the Financial Takeover Bill, expected next Wednesday, July 21
It will signify the end of the greatest, most successful experiment in society ever accomplished by mankind.  It has been brought to its knees, headdown on the block, awaiting beheading.

Our Founding Fathers risked their lives and fortunes to be rid of the arbitrary rule of a British monarch, King George III.  234 years later we are under the arbitrary rule of a meglomaniac, inexperienced president and his crony Congress.  Our Constitution granted every American citizen the freedom to seek his or her own happiness as he or she decided for him or her self.  (Get that politically-correct gender stuff?)  Those same constitutional freedoms have been usurped by unelected, idealogic bureaucrats given permission by the micromanaging Congress, filled generally with lawyers unfamiliar with actually working and accomplishing in the so-formerly-called "private sector" (please look up that anachronistic term).

Those bureaucrats will be telling our citizens what to eat; what clothes to wear; toys to play with; cars to drive; how to get well; how much money to make and what products and services to offer (as of now, this is for companies only); what loans to get; how much money to keep after paying taxes on whatever monies these individuals choose; and on and on and on.

These people have as much power over the common citizenry as George III and his aristocracy.  And they are just as arbitrary. 

From the thin air of so-called environmentalism, President Obama has ruled that the electric-car industry will be born, with hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars spent.  The most-efficient energy source for transportation, gasoline, will be regulated away by fiat.  Arbitrary?  Most definitely.  No one asked me if I want an electric car.  (I don't.)  American citizens will be forced to purchase health insurance; it is not a huge leap of faith to see the government forcing American citizens to only purchase electric cars.  Evidence is that most citizens don't  want to buy them.  A $7,500 bribe of taxpayer money is only the start!

And doubt not: all this legislation is to achieve one end: dictating the rule of so-called-progressive politicians on American citizens.  These "laws" are all fuzzy and non-specific in order to attract campaign contributions for Democrats (so-called-progressive politicians) from lobbyists trying to buy advantage and to encourage lawsuits by tort/trial lawyers who tithe a portion of their vast, uncountable riches to those self-same Democrats, incorrectly labeled "law" makers.  The final nail in the coffin of American capitalism comes from the other major financier of Democrat/progressives: labor union bosses.  In exchange for their power over government workers, they finance the campaigns of Democrats who set their wages, perks and retirements.

My personal wake begins today for American freedom. 

The Democratic Party has successfully launched and won the takeover of the American economy and society.  With it, they will preside over the dismantling of the AMERICAN (and World-wide) DREAM, may it Rest in Peace.

Super-sad American

Financial Takeover Accomplished, Government settles with Goldman

On May 24th I wrote in my blog, this one,, ("Goldman discusses settlement with SEC"):

"Another conspiracy theory: Obama sues Goldman, Sachs to provide the far-left media with fodder to push 'public opinion' against banks, bankers and Wall Street, no matter any reasonableness of evidence. To add substance the government is "investigating" Morgan Stanley for something or another. The story is the end game. Obama desires to grease the skids of his financial industry takeover and the governmnet actions pave the way. And the slurping, pandering media is nothing but a willing propaganda arm for him. And, gee whiz, the Senate passes his bill with four Republicans supporting it. But wait, it's not law yet. The Senate must reconcile its passed bill with that of the U. S. House of Representatives. It'll be another month, month-and-a-half to gather in all the campaign contributions for the November elections, then the 1,500-page bill will most certainly pass, with settlement of the Goldman suit following soon thereafter. And the 'investigations' of Morgan and other banks will slip unnoticed from Justice.

Justice. The Rule of Law. GONE!"

Well that was then, now here it is.  On  July 15, 2010, a little over my declaration of May 24's "month, month-and-a-half", and presto!

From Reuters: Fri Jul 16, 2010 1:47am IST:

"REUTERS - The U.S. Senate on Thursday gave final approval to a sweeping bill to reform financial regulation, sending it to President Barack Obama to sign into law."  (And it's up to 2,300 pages.)


(Also from Reuters (, 2:14 P.M. July 15, 2010, Pacific Standard Time):  "Happening Now:

Live Coverage: Goldman Sachs settles with SEC
SEC says Goldman to pay record $550 million to settle CDO-related charges"

But of course...Reuters then writes: "SEC says timing of settlement unrelated to passage of financial regulation. Full coverage of regulation here: by at 7/15/2010 9:05:30 PM2:05 PM"

As I predicted, Obama sues Goldman to pass his financial takeover bill, the legislation passes both Houses of Congress and Obama settles with Goldman.  If this isn't disgustingly corrupt, I don't know what is.

The American people are the Business Community

This is what is wrong with our country. No, it’s not the president making profound verbal pronouncements, never backed by action nor truth, nor appointing commissions to come to conclusions (after elections) that shield politicians from decision-making. No, it’s the philosophies that are implicitly stated in this article. ["Revisiting the Regulations Affecting Business", The Wall Street Journal, Monday, July 12, 2010, page A4.]  “..[T]he administration faces pressure from the left not to bargain too much away [my emphasis] to corporate interests [again my emphasis]”. In this scenario “business interests” in the minds of “the left” are evil, greedy graspers who simply seem to want more of something the administration possesses and is able to bargain away. Then, more explicitly, is the following comment by the White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel pitting the “business community” which, of course in his mind wants to diminish and undercut the “health and safety of the American people” which the left, of course, again to his thinking, wants to protect: “The president has said that he is interested and open to the business community’s perspective on examining regulations [whatever that means!], but a lot of important equities [whatever that means!] need to be weighed against each other, such as the health and safety of the American people—and no one interest outweighs another.” So President Obama sees the business community as being one “interest” and the health and safety of the American people as being another and the two of them being at absolute odds with each other. What about the unique concept of the “business community” [a distinct monolithic entity in the view of the left, as opposed to millions of separate entities, each with individual needs and desires, which is reality] being part and parcel of the American people, which, after all are the owners, operators and workers of the “business community”. Only in the eyes of liberals are the two separate, each fighting the other in an inevitable conflict to the end. The reality is that liberals need this (widespread) notion in order to gain and retain power. Republicans – and conservatives – seem unable to articulate this fact. The truth is that the “business community” – AKA the American people – have created wealth for the world and the United States government by its innovation and entrepreneurship. The American people ARE the “business community” and our government, purporting to represent us, should demonstrate this (not to mention understand it) and not simply exhibit headline-gaining, but empty “broad policy reviews”. Our country is facing unprecedented competition from a world of countries which have learned from us; rather than facing them squarely in the marketplace, our leaders are throwing the game to them.

Visualize union leaders working closely together with corporate leaders to gain a competitive advantage over, say, Chinese companies, with the wealth from success flowing back to the United States and into the hands of the American people. We are a people together. If only our politicians understood this!
