2. Here is how to support Dennis and make our economy
get back on it's feet.

Give our mortgages and our credit card debt to a new
government bank that can earn 5% interest, a new revenue
stream, from and to the people, over 30 years on all of us. 
And employ us in public works, and teach us service training,
competency training, and ethics trainings, and all kinds of
development skills, anyone who has a brain left and not
currently on psyco-pharmaceuticals(PPS).  Herbs are okay. 
Regarding (PPS) lets give funding for these folks who want to
get off the psyche meds. 

Then money will be coming in immediately.  We are all happy. 
Banks can do their thing, because it is all relative.  

Private industries should not have a say in a Bailout, they
are not part of our government.  Government is legally
mandated and organized to provide us with services, and goods
that keep our values and societies vibrant and healthy. 
Governments need revenue streams to do so, and that is
supposed to be from sales and property and income taxes, but
we have toxic investments bringing cities and states down and
that has to stop.  

This new government bank, I heard talk about, sounds like that
way to create a new and great revenue stream. Maybe we can
then sidestep the corrupt banking industry that caused this
ruckus.  Let them grow from our abilities to pay again.

I was surprised to learn that we have some great services that
we pay for with our taxes, like our parks, our sanitation, our
health, our education, our legal justice system, our treasury,
our social security.  We pay for this all with our taxes, and
we also pay government a revenue stream when we go to museums,
pay the utility bill, the water bill, the garbage bill, the
traffic ticket. 

Lets develop healthy monetary compensations for hard work and
ethics, the willingness to be trained, developed and grow both
ourselves and our company, our group, our band, our family
with some integrity and gain the strength that comes with such
a stand.  Like $30K out of high school gets people in their
own studio.  $50K after college and trained for management. 
$60 if develop a new income stream, and 5% of the profits. 
$70K if you account for and analyze all of the data with clear
financials and internal controls that work and pass audits.
$80 if you manage large groups of these people successfully,
plus 10%.  $90 if you manage managers in a region, plus $15%. 
ETC, reasonable and will get the real reason for this problem,
lower wages, back in decent track.  Fuck all the schemes. 

On Another note: 

Since when are we in a political rather than a legal world
when it comes to those in power, especially in the state of
Illinois? Do we not have to follow the rule of law in the
Senate of Illinois?  Can they allow a monkey court to
terminate Blago with the rules they put forth that violate his
ability to stand a real trial and defend himself?  

What duplicity is this?  Even Rachel Maddow caved and falls
for the foam at the mouth of those who do not hold the rule of
law to be the rule of the land.  The man is innocent until
proven guilty.  And he has rights to be respected enough to
bear his own witnesses in his defense.  What the fuck is going
on in Illinois?  And how dare the press continue to ridicule
Blago without addressing the negligence of the press in
investigating why they are pulling this bamboozzle on the seat
of the governor, maybe all future governors?  

Can someone tell me what is the point and why they do not give
this man the respect that comes with his office until proven
guilty of something.  Mr. Fitz did not indict and did not get
an extension so all of that is hearsay and crap out to smear
this guy.  We gave Bush respect, and he was a lot worse than
this guy.  This guy stood up to Bank of America for the
workers of that place, and they got their pensions.  This guy
gets results.  Is that why they are mad? Mirror, mirror on the
wall, who is the fairest of them all? 

Are we just going to sit back and watch a guy fight for the
rule of law and learn what we still have?  Or are we going to
fight for what we know is ours?  Are we blinded by jealousy
cause the man has hair? 

That, even if unconscious, would be insane.
