They are regulated, but they wet the bed. Them fools had to ask for 700 billion dollars. Time for castor oil, we can't trust them. We can not base our prosperity on them. If I was Obama I would have let the depression happen then locked up everybody who caused it. I would have been the real socialista. Muahahahahahaha! *evil music*

If your point is that no business at all is getting done. Heck. That makes us less government types just jump for joy, unfortunately its just not the case. The government is still passing plenty of new laws and bills this year.
just because quoting myself is fun:

from NBC:
Quote:
WASHINGTON Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts helped move sweeping financial legislation closer to passage Monday, announcing that after some misgivings he will support the regulatory overhaul after all.

Brown joins Sen. Susan Collins of Maine as two crucial Republican votes for the legislation.

Democratic leaders were still looking to secure the 60 votes needed to overcome procedural hurdles. They were awaiting word from Sens. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, and Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, who supported an earlier Senate version of the bill.
3 of the 4 Republicans are from the New England region, I just don't understand why they don't just admit they are Democrats and move on.

Re: For JTF's Reading Pleasure: "What is the Tea Party"

Since this is the Tea Party thread, I though it was worth mentioning that Harry Reid is now leading in the polls against Tea Party candidate, Sharron Angle.

He also has a double digit lead among women. A few months back, some people here thought Reid was toast. I guess we'll see.

This one's definitely gonna be a dog-fight. Millions of DNC/RNC $$$ rolling into this election. I think Rasmussen on July 13 had Angle 46 Reid 43. Reid's negative attacks have been successful in raising Angle's unfavorable rating a great deal.

They really blew it...before the Angle nomination and Chicken Sue candidacy I was 90% sure Harry was a cooked goose. Now I am 90% sure good ol' Harry is going to be around next year. There is so much material to hammer her on it's not even funny and the fact that she won't do any interviews outside the conservative TV and Radio circles is only going to hurt. You don't just preach to the choir if you want to win.

Re: For JTF's Reading Pleasure: "What is the Tea Party"

I think more than anything, for me, it speaks to the viability and future prospects of the Tea Party movement. Last summer all the media could do was obsess about the Tea Party and how they were taking the country back. Problem is they want to take it back to the 1900s. What a difference a year makes.

I think the Tea Party has a great basic premise, smaller federal gov't, less spending. But it's candidates have to become more politcally saavy if they're going to win elections in battleground areas. They've got to be smarter in responses to questions, learn how to track to the center for general elections, and not get pigeon-holed by strict ideology.

The Tea Party is making a lot of enemies on the left so they're definitely a threat. We'll just have to see how Nov. plays out to determine their real impact.

The real enemies of the Tea Party are the Republicans.

Agreed. RINOs and the Republican establishment are definitely no friend to the Tea Party either.

Re: For JTF's Reading Pleasure: "What is the Tea Party"

If the standard for being a threat is liberals mocking you then color me yellow. The real enemies of the Tea Party is their uncontrollable stupidity. Lots of nice sounding "ideas" but no practical solution.


Enjoy your weekend fellas.
