Auto Bailout & Christmas Cheer: Billions for crooks, not one cent for workers

That's a big bad corporate lawyer named Drierer, arrested in Toronto yesterday. He's could be any one of my Princeton or law school acquaintenances. He's accomplished much. Made billions, eh? Erected a mini white shoe law firm. Such a posterboy for Big Law,Big Capitalism...oh and did I say he was arrested? But union autoworkers, now they are the true villians. Read on... I'm off to a string of Christmas HOLIDAY parties (as corporate America/marketing clowns have ordained) from K Street to NJ for the weekend, so I'll be scarce on the blog. Check me out as a regular contributor in I was wondering what "Joe the Plumber" would say about his beloved GOPs torpedoing of the auto bailout in order to screw the working man? The LA Times (in a last gasp of pre-Zell journalism) reported so. He's now already on record saying to fellow douche Glenn Beck that he felt disgusted after “being on the campaign trail and seeing some of the things that take place.”
So the Republicans love folk like my boy Drierer and Bernie Madoff . Scions of laissez-faire . Ummm...the GOP became socialists and have dispensed over $300 B from the TARP, no questions asked, to folk just a cut or two above Drierer and Bernie. Yet they go back to wingnut-sim and try to dismantle the UAW? Newsflash...even the workers hate the UAW. Umm...they hate it b/c they thought they were in bed with company executives. What's Joe the Plumber's take? Likely still anti-Obama? If so, I guess gaybashing, guns and the flag really ARE are more important than self-preservation and common sense. Imagine that. Perhaps the GOP is onto something. Or, Barack's about to pick up this one last stubborn demo?
New track. In a bizarre twist, it seems Fox personnel are acting more responsible on this Blagojevich thing regarding the President-elect, even Val, Rahm et al than the supposedly pro-Obama MSNBC and CNN. Thoughts?

Enjoy your weekends and Merry CHRISTMAS.

I do not know What kind of society you are building, but I am sure it'll not last.

European governments are legislating so for auto makers (european or not - think USA corporations) NOT to cut labor forces in Europe.

In your country you SEE working class people voicing concerns on such measures. Staying in Iraq so to BUY a fake victory is more important than securing people jobs?

If million of people loose their jobs who gonna buy Japanese or european cars in the USA, oiling the cogs of the economy?
-Not very much people, then who this move helps?

Sorry, Christmas really never meant a thing to me, this is not a place for childhood reminiscence though, Merry Christmas.

Apparently Dick Cheney lambasted Republican Congress leaders in a closed meeting about this mess and warned about being "Herbert Hoover."

That's very interesting.

Most smart people understand the scoop on the Rethuglicans. Note I said "smart." The average beer drinking sot has never understood how his heroes are fucking him.

You're wrong about Madoff. He may have been allowed to flourish because there is no regulation, but his punishment will be scary, for he bilked members of the Tribe, and the only thing Jews hate more than Louis Farrakhan is Jews who said they'd make other Jews rich, then turn around and bleed them dry. Some of the funds were supposedly benefitting Holocaust survivors, so you know they are going to kill him.
