You, of course, were shocked when Chase Chairman, Jamie Dimon, announced that J.P. Morgan/Chase lost a 2 $Billion hedge fund bet. Rachel Maddow and Elizabeth Warren discuss this subject:
A love of tradition has never weakened a nation, indeed it has strengthened nations in their hour of peril; but the new view must come, the world must roll forward.
PERHAPS ROMNEY’S SUCCESS WAS JUST DUMB LUCK?
LET’S HAVE A MARCH ON WASHINGTON TO SPARK CONGRESSIONAL REFORM
I remember hearing commentary about gridlock in our Congress in the 90s. It continues today through the filibuster and the 60 Vote Rule. Even though Sen. Harry Reid is the democratic Majority Leader of the Senate, his power to advance the President’s agenda keeps getting busted in the…knees by the Republican Minority leader’s use of the filibuster. And, of course, the adoption of the 60 Vote Rule means that Democrats cannot pass legislation without some Republican Senators voting with their opposition, the Democrats. Sen. Mitch McConnell is Minority Leader and he keeps his troops voting as a block. This is a part of his campaign (war) “to make Barack Obama a one term president.” To Republicans JOB NUMBER ONE is to do nothing that might help Barack Obama. Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-OH), keeps passing laws that please his Tea Party co-representatives, but, have no chance in hell of passing in the Senate. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE ALLOWED THIS TO CONTINUE. Our do-nothing Congress has the lowest approval rating of any in history. Excuse me, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, but the DNC needs to galvanize national opposition to how the Senate and House do the people’s business. WE NEED A MARCH ON WASHINGTON AND THE OFFICES OF THE PEOPLE WE SENT TO DC WHO FAILING TO ACT IN OUR BEST INTEREST. The framers of the Constitution setup an admirable Congress. But, it has been polluted by stupid traditions that work against the people. THE DNC MUST ACT! IN THIS HISTORIC TIME IN OUR POLITICS. In closing, CONGRESS,
GO F*CK… REFORM YOURSELF!
Irreverent, but, funny as hell!
