    Hank's (Paulson)Hollywood Script

    "Ladies and gentlemen we have been 'had' By Our Own Elected Congress !"

    A new script is rumored to be making the Hollywood rounds. Here’s the plot: In the midst of a heated presidential campaign, a senior New York Democratic senator (Shummer) pens a letter, which ultimately leads to a run on a bank called IndyMac.

    Then, mere weeks prior to Election Day, the Treasury secretary warns that a market meltdown is inevitable if his plans to address the crises are not immediately implemented.He also scares the president, Congress and nation half out of their wits with terrifying talk about catastrophic economic consequences that will ensue if a $700 billion bailout bill is not passed pronto.

    He speaks, too, of an outright economic collapse if Congress fails to act. He tells the country that the money must be used to purchase assets from financial institutions — or else. A sufficient degree of fear is generated for the Treasury secretary’s demands to be met. But intriguingly in the process, the political dynamics of the presidential race are altered. The Democratic candidate assumes the lead and ultimately scores an Election Day victory.

    Immediately following the election, the Treasury secretary announces that his rescue plan — the one so urgently needed — isn’t necessary after all. Is the bailout bill negated? No. It turns out that the $700 billion won’t be used to buy troubled assets, which the public was told would fix the ailing credit market, but instead will be sent to banks and finance companies, which handle credit cards and auto loans.

    The Treasury secretary explains that this is the fix the credit market needs. No talk about how it will encourage people to buy more stuff that they can’t afford. Since banks were the ones originally designated for the bailout bucks, the Treasury secretary additionally allows companies to become banks, so they can ride the gravy train, too.

    How are things faring for the Hollywood-D.C. screenplay? Not too well. According to veteran Hollywood insiders, studio execs are passing on the script because it’s just too unbelievable. Not as unbelievable is the latest news that Michael Moore is trying to keep his faltering filmmaker career alive by changing his upcoming documentary into a flick on the global financial crisis.

    When Paramount Vantage and Overture first announced Moore's film in May 2008, it was presented with a focus on foreign policy. But as the big news shifted toward the economy, Moore began describing his movie as one dealing with the global financial crisis and the U.S. economy.

    I really doubt that even if the whole economy had not tanked right before the election, that McCain would have won. McCain never had a chance. He was voter repellant among conservatives and the Democrats and Moderates he always "reached across the aisle" to pissed on his foot. He was never going to win and I never really wanted him to win anyway. I just did not want Obama to win even more.

    The whole thing stinks.There isn't a choice or a chance with this Republician RINO riddled burned out hulk of a party.Where are the conservatives of old like Ronald Reagan and perhaps Sarah Paulin ?Ronald Reagan was a 'real' person and Had a layback way of dealing with the radical twisted fruit cakes .He was always able to laugh at their serious insanity and raging anger over his administration .
