Senate: We had to burn Wall Street to save it

Don't let Congress put the Zippo to the economy
You have heard by now that the US Senate yesterday "reluctantly" passed a larded-up version of the $700,000,000,000 Wall Street bailout bill. I don't think they were reluctant enough. It is again time to let the House know that we don't want this bill sent to the White House. We know clueless George will sign it "reluctantly". This Congressional economic disaster needs to be stopped now.

The US House of Representatives' e-mail system is not working worth a darn. My efforts to contact Jeff Fortenberry keep getting bounced back, so I have taken the advice of a great blogger and gotten on the telephone. Thank goodness the phones in Congress still work.

Please! Spring for a long-distance call today. It isn't only seven hundred billion dollars at stake; it is the American free market economy that is in danger of being destroyed by misguided meddlers in Congress.

From Michelle Malkin: "The People’s House needs to hear from the people. Get your fingers dialing for Operation Hold The Line. Because so many of you asked, I’ve compiled the phone numbers for each and every one of the House GOP members who voted no on Monday. They need to hear from you again."

If your representative isn't on this list, odds are they will vote for the bailout. Call them anyhow and try to get them to change their minds. The phone numbers for ALL US Congressmen and women can be found here. (The House websites are jammed up for some reason, you may need to look up the number in your telephone directory or by Googling your representative's name.)

Get on the telephone NOW. These cats will listen. Remember how we stopped the amnesty for illegal immigrants? Its time to tell your representative to start representing YOU.
To quote the great Lady Margaret Thatcher: “This is no time to go wobbly.”
Question: Why should we trust the Congress with the lowest approval rating that anyone can remember to pass a bill that is bigger in dollar numbers than any such bailout ever? Did you know how Congress arrived at the $700,000,000,000.00 figure? You won't believe it:
It's not based on any particular data point," a Treasury spokeswoman told Forbes.com Tuesday. We just wanted to choose a really large number.
Believe it. Tell your congress-cats not to vote for it.
Addendum: Melodramatic leftist billionaire Warren Buffet says the economy is undergoing an "economic Pearl Harbor". He doesn't complete his fear-mongering metaphor by clarifying just who is playing the role of the Japanese in his mind. I'll help him out: this sneak attack on the US free market system is coming from the treacherous leftists in Congress.

If this awful bill passes it will indeed be a day to be remembered in infamy.
