“This is dangerous,” writes Thomas Friedman, the senior foreign policy columnist for the New York Times, in a column published Wednesday. “We have House members, many of whom I suspect can’t balance their own checkbooks, rejecting a complex rescue package because some voters, whom I fear also don’t understand, swamped them with phone calls. I appreciate the popular anger against Wall Street, but you can’t deal with this crisis this way.”
In short, the opposition of the majority of the American people cannot be allowed to stand in the way of a “complex rescue package” designed by “experts” like Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, Goldman Sachs’s former CEO, for the purpose of bailing out his colleagues on Wall Street and rescuing the fat portfolios of individuals like Friedman.

This should tell you what a joke this country is becoming. We already have the constitution and 4th amendment in place to protect our rights. Now we have to make laws to protect the laws that that are already there? How about just abiding by the damn founding documents?
What's next? 1st Amendment Protection Act? 2nd Amendment Protection Act? This is all so insane.edit on 28-12-2012 by Merlin Lawndart because: (no reason given)
