Elizabeth Warren SHOULD NOT be on the Senate Banking Committee [View all]

Today we read that Professor Warren, despite her alleged status as one of the nation's top banking experts, may not be appointed to the Senate Banking Committee.

Thank goodness!

Professor Warren is a well-known agitator who only expertise is on the subject of how banks destroy economies and lives. She knows nothing of the manly business of making money. Sure, banks destroy economies and lives - but that's not their purpose. Their purpose is to make money, and any destruction that they leave in their wake is merely a necessary part of making a living. A really, really good living. Really enormous, bigger than you can possibly imagine. Huge. Ginormous.

And that's what government's here for, isn't it? So that bankers can make even more money, so eventually they'll make enough to create a job.

We need sensible Democrats on the Banking Committee, folks who know how the world really works. Not Krugman-firebagger types like Professor Warren. As Occupy-crushing NYC Mayor Bloomberg said, if Warren gets a lick of power, she'll "close the banks and get rid of corporate profits, and we’d all bring socialism back, or the U.S.S.R.”.

Well, we don't want the U.S.S. of R. here in the US, no sir. We'll keep our precious bodily fluids to ourselves.

I hope you'll join me in putting pressure on our elected representatives to keep Professor Warren away from anything important. Our precious bodily fluids are just too precious to put at risk.

Sincerely,

Third-Way Manny
