No, I'm not talking about Vietnamistan, er, Afghanistan, I'm talking about the economy, stupid.
Not content with sinking the American way of life with politically-drive economic banking policies, Congress has decided to start from scratch. The Congressional Black Caucus got $4 BILLION added to legislation by good ol' Fuck-the-American-Taxpayers Barney Frank's committee, because we didn't provide enough cash in the last go round to provide low-interest loans to unemployed homeowners in danger of foreclosure. He added $1 billion for "neighborhood revitalization programs."
Among the caucus' other demands? "Greater assistance for minority-owned auto dealerships and banks that lend in African-American communities and more government advertising in minority-owned media."
History, apparently, isn't a big teacher in Congress, once again showing just how stupid and arrogant our elected reps are.
