A 9/11 Moment

What is happening this weekend, in response to the economic crisis, is what the Middle Eastern unilateral wars of aggression were to the 9/11 attacks. That is to say, it is an ill considered plan, formulated by a small group of partisans, whose concerns do not coincide with the American people, rammed through a weak and ineffectual Congressional leadership. It will soon become apparent that this resolution trust rescue of Wall Street is nothing more than a ruinously expensive corporate welfare program, with no benefits for the average taxpayer. By that time it will be to late. The deal will be done. The system will be up and running and spewing out money.

Fool me once.
