How To Solve the Financial Crisis: Get Rid of the Liars

http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-solve-financial-crisis-kick-all.html

After 7 years of lies from Bush, Cheney, Pelosi and the gang, people have stopped believing them.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson said:

"Who you are speaks so loudly I can't hear what you're saying."

Its like a thief who has been arrested 5 times for burglary. Even though he says all the right things to the judge at sentencing, the judge is still going to throw the book at him.

If the thief is appointed to head a government commission on corruption, do you think people will have confidence in the commission or its proposed actions? (Paulson was the head of Goldman Sachs when they sold huge sums of mortgage-backed securities called collateralized debt obligations, which are part of what caused the financial meltdown).

NYPD calls on citizens for amateur video evidence

I don't think that they thought this through very far. I have a funny feeling that they are going to be swamped with video of corrupt public servants doing their thing. Do any of you have video evidence of criminal activity in the New York City area that the NYPD should be interested in investigating? I don't see any reason why professional video evidence can't be offered, too.

The URL for video uploads hasn't been made public yet. Please update this thread as soon as you see NYPD's URL published!

New Yorkers can soon take a bite out of city crime by uploading video or photo evidence directly to the New York Police Department, in a move welcomed on Thursday by civil rights groups.

"We're putting that technology in place to enable us to do that," said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, adding that the service will be available soon.

"It's a fact of life," Kelly said. "Everybody has a camera in their telephones. When people can record an event taking place that helps us during an investigation, it's helpful."

On the stump, Rudy can't help spreading smoke and ashes about his lousy record

Nearly six years after 9/11, Rudy Giuliani is still walking through the canyons of lower Manhattan, covered in soot, pointing north, and leading the nation out of danger's way. The Republican frontrunner is campaigning for president by evoking that visual at every campaign stop, and he apparently believes it's a picture worth thousands of nights in the White House.

Giuliani has been leading the Republican pack for seven months, and predictions that the party's evangelicals would turn on him have so far proven hollow. The religious right appears as gripped by the Giuliani story as the rest of the country.
