How To Blame Bush/McCain For Your New Great Depression
If you own a house, it's now worth negative nothing. If you're a renter, your landlord is probably already in foreclosure and you will soon be homeless. Got some investments, maybe a 401k or whatever? You really don't even want to look. Got one of those fancy jobs with benefits and health care and such? You will soon be unemployed, living in a Hobo Jungle down by the railroad tracks in the darkness on the edge of town. Happy Monday, everybody! But how can you blame this on McCain and his boyfriend George W. Bush?
Lehman Brothers is gone and Merrill Lynch is just the latest loser to be consumed by Bank of America, which will soon be the only bank in America, until it also collapses and citizens are forced to eat their dogs.
The S&P 500 is down more than 20% since October, one of every ten homeowners is either in foreclosure or months behind in payments, and another 100,000 financial industry jobs will be gone by the end of this grim quarter. It's un-American to blame any of this on greedy, dumb Americans -- whether the part-time service worker with $25,000 of credit card debt or the mortgage-securities geniuses who destroyed hallowed Wall Street firms by betting, retardedly, that real estate prices would just keep climbing, forever, and that people would keep making the house payments, despite having less income.
So let's blame it on these assholes:
- John McCain: Ha ha, google "bank collapse McCain" and you will find some fun results that old Walnuts had hoped were forgotten forever, because who remembers boring things like the Savings and Loan apocalypse or the Keating Five? Also, one of his sons just fled the board of a failed bank in Nevada!
- Phil Gramm: Hateful old banking industry Texan crook was/is John McCain's Economy Czar. He's the one who called America a "nation of whiners" for being sad because of the New Depression. He also sponsored the deregulation that created the financial collapse. Gramm is also a vice-chairman at UBS, which is about to collapse, too.
- George W. Bush told you to go shopping after 9/11, and you were stupid enough to do it. You are now a gazillion dollars in debt for a bunch of already-obsolete consumer electronics and clothes that no longer fit, because you are fat, because poor people are fat because they can only afford bags of 49-cent greaseburgers, for their food.
