Obama: Creating the Next Enron?

This doesn't look good.

It becomes readily more apparent every day that the far left shriekers of the Huffington Post, Daily Kos, and Raw Story never really worried about tyrannical fascism arising in this nation. They're real concern is that it might not happen when they were in power. Now that President Obama has unilaterally granted himself far more power than Bush and Cheney ever dreamed of, the same people who worried about a police state are sitting merrily at home without so much as a whimper... shining their badges.

To paraphrase Matthew Broderick in a movie whose name escapes me at the moment, "Really? I talked to God just last night and he didn't even mention Obama!"

The movie GEJ refers to is 'Lady Hawke'...

Compared to what is in the making now, Enron will look like an exercise in rectitude.

Enron, for those who have forgotten, went still nominally involved in...the bankruptcy process. It was an IMMENSE company, but was not "too big to fail". The bankruptcy courts did with it what they have done with other big companies: applied the law. Works every time it is tried.

This illustrates the basic problem with liberalism. When faced with any problem there is the overwhelming compulsion to do something, anything. Instead of taking a short term loss while finding the best possible solution to Chrysler, the Obama regime would rather create a long term disaster than be seen as inactive. It's "there ought to be a law" syndrome.

They cannot leave anything alone. Even if any action might create chaos. We are faced with an administration and Congress that will lurch from one ill considered action to another. This is far from the last catastrophe we'll see, The only question is whether the lapdogs can hide their responsibility.

Ken, I think you have identified a major difference between liberalism and conservatism: the former have to take action, even if that action is counterproductive. After all, if you try something and it fails, then you have an obligation to try to fix what you screwed up, plus you still have the original problem to address, and so it expands geometrically.

A conservative, on the other hand, believes that when it is not neccessary to take action, it is neccessary not to take action.

By "conservative" of course I am discounting RINOs, who apparently differ from liberal Dems only in the slightly slower pace they wish to establish Leviathan.

Even Hitler didn't go as far as taking over corporations, he only made them work for the government. Who would have thought that Obama has gone farther than Hitler?

They are shining their badges and I am cleaning my guns. Also been busy reloading some ammo.

Happy was alive, a brave move, can not lose confidence, as long as you do, and always have their own world, not to give up, never give up. At the same time, good people will give others encouragement to others filling in when others need help, help others. When a friend's success in the blessings of friends, there is no jealousy, not to harbor bitter resentment, remember everyone is in fact very good. Let us work together to have a better world.
