There is some doubt that a derivative bond bailout package, of the kind demanded by Paulson, Bernanke and Bush will be agreed upon by Congress. This is the best news I have heard in months. If such a bill is torpedoed, it will be thanks to a group of Republican Congressmen responding to overwhelmingly negative feedback from their constituents.
It could be, that Representative government is not dead in this country. I could easily embrace many of the conservative ideals of the Republicans. I just wish they would quit trying to turn the country into some sort of militarily enforced, corporate backed, holy roller theocracy, institutionalize racism and sexism and offer up high functioning morons, like George Bush, for the highest offices in the land.
I guess it's really true that nobody ever gets everything they want.
