Blanche gets it…Barney don’t.

Look, I will admit upfront that I can not find my ass w/both hands when it comes to the world of finance, stocks and derivatives..not to mention hedge funds.

Say what you will about the bluedog Blanche Lincoln, hell I take her name in vain a LOT. She is a c#nt on healthcare and many other social issues..but the bitch (I mean that in a good way) gets it on Financial Reform.

On the other hand, Barney Frank is rolling over. I can’t friggin believe it. He wants to weaken the FR bill even more…wtf dude????

Dylan Ratigan has some great guests on daily that are specialists on derivatives, stocks, investors and the whole ball of wax when it comes to fixing our banking system.

Video when it becomes available…meanwhile read this on his msnbc page and this on HuffPo…about how Dodd, Frank and others are basically caving in to Big Banking and the markets, stock and otherwise.

The bill and various amendments are being debated now. The fuckers are pulling the rug out from under Financial Reform. It’s downright fucking pathetic m’dear reader.

I just got home after a week w/my father. I poured a stiff drink (it was after noon) and turned on my favorite political show lately, Dylan Ratigan. All it did was stress me out…and I just spent a week stressed out with my father who keeps having major senior moments. Sigh…heavy sigh.

Video is out.

About Dusty, hells most vocal bitch

I am a..brown Cali bitch that is quite the opinionated,political, pain-in-the-ass, in your face kinda girl that also loves baseball and music to a fault. Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.--Albert Einstein-*

  1. The Size of the Derivatives Bubble = $190K Per Person on Planet (circa 2008)
    and even now its $700 trillion; thats a casino thats 50 times the US GDP…

  2. Dude…it's the elephant in the room….or gorilla..I don't care which.

  3. Hope you are doing better with your dad.

    The banking lobby is strong, very strong.

  4. The dims are rolling over because they were told to-even Barney does as told. Of course non will ever admit to it. There is a thing they haven't cave on when the going got tough.

  5. I'll just say hey, reason I have not a clue….. All I know is we always get screwed.

  6. This comment concerns the unemployment extensions, and how the Right feels that it is just allowing people to sit on their asses. Now, there are some who, due to the spouse still working, and the benefits from their state being enough, that the job search might be less than frantic. 

    But John Kyl, a representative in my state of Az., has a lotta nerve to try that one here. The UI here is $240 a week; I used to drink that much each week, fer crissake. And remember, thats the very maximum, so you had to have been making fair wages for 18 months before the layoff just to get that much. Even with the wife making good money, at least for Az., I definitely got antsy anytime the layoff check came. 

    These fuckers just have no idea how we normal, non-millionaires, live today. Not a clue. 

  7. Trog: I also live in Az. Our state is a third world FAILED state. Kyl, and Mc CAIN are both a disgrace.
    The blatant and veiled racism is this state is beyond belief. Az. will be one of the last states to get out of the recession. That is if we ever do at all. Cave people could have shown better leadership than what we have now. The people in our state are hurting big time, and these fuckers only care about getting re-elected. Shame on them, and shame on the state of Az.

  8. trog, it only takes 41 assholes to constipate the entire country:

    Stabenow: “Republicans Want This Economy To Fail”– In a depressing briefing with reporters, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) charged that Republicans basically are holding back measures to extend unemployment insurance and create jobs in a cynical ploy to help their chances in November by crashing the economy and blaming the Democrats for it.At issue is the large tax extenders/jobs bill, which has been whittled down consistently over the past few weeks, with Republicans continuing to offer a united front against the bill.
