Never Forget

Congratulations, America, your government's going to buy BIG SHITPILE for what is estimated to be the bargain price of $3, or 5, or 7 trillion dollars!(they really have no idea of the actual number) Because the thieves of Wall Street had built businesses that were TOO BIG TO FAIL!

So next time your government tells you that we can't afford universal healthcare, social security, medicare, paid family leave, childcare, Head Start, all those programs that benefit ordinary Americans who earn less than six figures, remember this day.

We can afford anything. Republicans and conservatives just CHOOSE to give their money to their rich pals on Wall Street.

Do you think the CEO of AIG knows how many houses he owns? Of course not. Like John McCain he is awash in wealth and is completely divorced from the problems of ordinary Americans. Yet we just lavished $85 billion dollars on his empty shell of a company, which paid him to pretend the sham mortgages were worth something.

Wall Street just ran a giant Ponzi scheme and the US government let it happen, then rushed in to pick up the tab.

And John McCain's response? The fundamentals of our economy are strong.

Every Democratic surrogate who appears on TV for the next six weeks must repeat that statement at least once.

The fundamentals of our economy are strong.
The fundamentals of our economy are strong.
The fundamentals of our economy are strong.

A man who would say that in the middle of the greatest destruction of financial wealth that the world has ever seen isn't fit to be President.
