Once again the majority in Congress appear to be preparing to take the fatal leap of the lemming. What's the matter--isn't eight years of lying, subversion, and destroying our constitution and country not enough? Now apparently this administration, in collusion with Congress, also wants to destroy citizens of this once-great country totally while subsidizing this rapacious greedy bunch on Wall Street.

Does that give anyone pause, time to get the cognitive juices flowing. Why? If this Congress and this administration put "We the People" into further fatal debt, they will have insured a nation of slaves. There will be no money for social programs, which will be dismantled, no money for infrastructure, Bush will have succeeded in making us a Third World country.

If the financial centers of this country collapse, please do not think anyone living in My Trailer Park will care. We are a bunch of survivors, innovative, creative, used to surviving with little. But they would make us all slaves as well as our children and grandchildren.

What can we do to stop the carnival in Congress with Bush as ringmaster? Has everyone collectively gone insane, is there something in the water in Washington besides the lust for power and money? They must stop trying to save us, their help is toxic and lethal.

That's just the view from My Trailer Park.

When they say, "It's complicated," look out. In the old days they use to put you in jail for "check kiting." Now they call it short selling. When you go to Las Vegas you know the house never loses; on Wall Street it's called derivatives. You can't pay off a credit card with another credit card, but you can on Wall Street. One trillion dollars for Wall Street, $2.1 trillion for the war in Iraq. Kiss healthcare so long--bridge repair? sorry--improved education? tough noogies. Your parents left you sweat equity, sorry, "We are selling that to China. "We are in this great global economy," you know. Job? What job? It's your fault, idiot. You bought the house when you had a job and energy cost one-third what it does now, and you come crying to us, the billionaires? Get away. We sold your mortgage to China, go argue with them, They want their monies now.

Three pages of facts, figures and history, and not a single complaint about--not even a mention of--Barack Obama. It's as though this would-be next president of the US has never existed.

You know what such reporting does? It makes Obama to be Bill Clinton, and James S. Henry and his reader to be Monica.
