Marcy Kaptur kicks ass on the blank check

September 25, 2008

In an interview of some astronaut, that I saw a long time ago, the interviewer asked; “Suppose you only had ten seconds of air left.  What would you do?  The right-stuff guy answered; “I’d spend eight seconds thinking and two seconds acting.”

A friend of mine in high school grew up in a logging camp.  He told me; “If I had ten minutes to cut down a tree, I’d spend seven of them sharpening my chain.”

So we’ve got this big hairy financial crisis, and the only solution is to make up some big-assed random amount of money and throw it at the problem and run away screaming.  And it has to be done RIGHT NOW!

Seriously, what’s the rush? The game we’re playing is stacked in favor of fat cats.  Fine-tuning the rules makes some sense, but Rep. Kaptur is pitching a whole new game:

Ohio is lucky to have Marcy Kaptur, kicking ass and taking names.

    How about this. Yes we will take the mortgages off you- all the mortgages good as well.  We will recalculate based on a ‘no profit’ interest rate, and look at what the mortgagees have already paid, and run it from here.

    It would be interesting to see what the costs of a ‘socialized’ mortgage would be ie principle+cost of loaning the money+ admin costs.

    I went to her website and told her how much I appreciated her comment. Which is saying something to how truly great I thought her comment was.

    “You have to sign now to get this deal!”

    Hey, I think I’ve heard that on a used car lot!
