Once a Chicago Thug, Always a Chicago Thug

If you are actually surprised at this news, you might want to re-evaluate just whether you should ever again vote in any election—ever!

Top White House officials last week pressed the chief executive officers of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Bank of America Corp. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. to stop lobbying against a financial-regulatory bill advancing in Congress, according to people who attended the meeting. President Barack Obama’s senior adviser David Axelrod and National Economic Council Director Lawrence Summers met with Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon, Bank of America’s Brian Moynihan and about 12 other executives at an April 6 event in Washington hosted by the Financial Services Forum

The problem with allowing the government to take over the financial industry, is that idiots like the Teleprompter-in-Chief will then decide that they have the brain power to know what is right and wrong for that industry.

During one exchange, executives raised concern over the administration’s criticism of the industry’s efforts to influence the bill, according to one participant. Summers responded by calling on the industry to cease running ads against the bill and to stop its lobbyists from trying to insert loopholes in the legislation, the person said.

Do you get it now?  You spent all the money on Obama (just how many millions came from Wall Street we will never really know) and now that he’s pushing things you don’t like you get to SHUT UP! And do you know why?  Well,

White House officials have expressed frustration with the industry for lobbying against overhaul efforts after a $700 billion taxpayer-funded bailout helped them restore profits and near-record compensation for executives. Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Bank of America are among banks that have repaid the money.

You got your bailout, and your bonuses aren’t being mau-maued (for now), so shut up and support The Greatest President Who Ever Deigned To Touch the Soil of Earth With His Shoe!

Introducing The All New “Progressive” Auto Lineup For 2010!

2008 Government-Subsidized Auto Show

A Car Czar must be appointed to distribute cash to our automobile industry so that we can protect it from the Capitalist evil of competition.

To highlight the urgent need for these measures and to emphasize the many successes of government-run automaking, we present the 2008 Government-Subsidized Auto Show.

“Every car came with a rear defroster to keep your hands warm as you pushed the car…” A triumph of Communist engineering!!!

Now get out there and make Socialist cars for the Party bosses!

Obama Media Campaign Workers Lose Positions

How good is it that the New York Times is looking to borrow money in a down economy with a shrinking revenue base?  Apparently the Schultzberger family will take out every penny before going to the government for a newspaper bailout.

And the Tribune Company (LA Times, Orlando Sentinel, Cubs, etc.) sure didn’t last long with their little buyout.  They go down in flames with $13 billion in debt and $7.6 billion in assets.

The Obama cheering section continues to get thinner and thinner in the dead stream media ranks.

Auto Company Bailout Proposal

Hey! Here’s a GREAT idea: Any executive of any company which has received any kind of federal support MUST purchase and drive an American-made car and donate their BMW, Mercedes, Lexus or whatever to the Salvation Army.

Since the 1950’s Japanese automakers have been concentrating on the quality of their products, having bought into the theories of MIT professor Dr. Edward Demmings.

And that the Germans had pretty much cornered the market on excellence in engineering.

All that US manufacturers have excelled in is marketing gimmicks and it has finally caught up with them.

The Germans and the Japanese (and the Koreans) have been building cars consumers want to buy. US manufacturers have been building cars that the companies want to sell.

Once again the federal government will reward bad behavior.
