Arizona: Don’t Look at the Light!

How many of you recall the scene from “It’s a Bug’s Life when a mosquito flies towards the pretty blue light in a trance like state while a second mosquito tries to warn him of the danger.  The light attracts the bug with its inviting blue hue and draws it in.  The bug so entranced by the light is powerless to resist.  Then…zap!  This is how I feel right now with the current Arizona immigration law and all the press it has received from the MSM.  That should be warning enough.  If the MSM wants your attention on it then perhaps something is amiss.
The hue of the emotionally charged immigration debate is simply too hard to resist.  We all know that the Congress has already stated that immigration reform will more than likely not be taken up in an election year because it’s too much of a hot button issue.  In case we have forgotten, our elected representatives in Washington care about two things; themselves and oh yeah themselves.  And yet we are all drawn to the light like the mosquito, not paying attention to the real issue on the President’s plate. 
That real issue is the financial reform bill.  He has taken the time out of his busy schedule, which consists of campaigning and more campaigning to sell this idea of reform to the masses.  Now when a Marxist is all for a financial reform bill in a capitalistic system, doesn’t that smell like trouble?  When you of hear things like “to big to fail,” or the breaking up privately owned companies that could be an economic threat if they fail, this should set off the unconstitutional warning alarms all around you. 
Just last Thursday the GOP decided it was time to end their filibuster so that debate on the senate floor could commence.  I mean it was in the news last week when the GOP filibuster was stalling the bill.  Try to find a story on it today.  Oh wait I did.  I found a really good article here.  It’s from Canada’s National Post…nice.  So we’re on the verge of passing the biggest financial reform since the Great Depression; a bill that will affect everyone, because last I knew, pretty much everyone uses banks, and I had to dig to find an article on it dated May 3rd on Canada’s National Post.  Does that strike anyone as just a tad bit odd?  I mean this is the same financial reform bill that President Obama, just days ago, was campaigning for passage.
Well I guess with all the other news, from Arizona’s immigration law to the gulf oil disaster; we just don’t have time for a bill that clearly the American people are for.  The pretty blue light…it’s so beautiful…ZAP!
We need to turn away from the light now and keep a watchful eye on this bill before Congress and the President zaps we the taxpayer.  I mean haven’t we been zapped enough by these politicians in Washington.  The more the American people know about this anti-capitalist bill the more they will reject it in its present format.  People we’re talking about the government taking over private property and breaking it up as they see fit.  We’re talking about a massive expansion of power for the executive branch.
I’ll leave you with this excerpt from the Financial Post

The financial bill contains goodies for Big Labour and “too big to fail” banks and financial institutions, at the expense of taxpayers and competing firms.

Obama has collected millions from Wall Street special interests, his administration contains many Wall Street lobbyists, and he supported the unnecessary US$700-billion bank bailout.  But now, he’s pushing a deceptive financial regulation bill with phony rhetoric about “reform,” claiming it is “not legitimate” to point out that the bill could lead to yet more bailouts and government takeovers.

And we thought he cared about the taxpayer and middle class.  Not so much.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    The more I learn about this bill the more it worries me. The idea of a perpetual bailout is is disturbing. This could push us far beyond any we have seen in Greece.

    It expands the power of the federal government way beyond its constitutional authority once again Trestin. That's never a good thing.

    BBBBZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZTTTT!! Thats my impression of us getting zapped. Nice post John, I like the article from the National Post, those Canadians know where we're headed.

    Thanks for stopping by USA. It's funny how the Canadian News seems to be much more informative than our own news. Maybe because they know as we go they go.

    I wonder how big one has to be to be "too big to fail?" Usually, when government intervenes, the big businesses can function better in a high regulatory environment. It's the smaller firms that have difficulty meeting regulatory requirements, and they can't absorb expenses as easily. And if they are big enough to be "too big to fail…"

    You're exactly spot-on Matt! Small Business is indeed going to suffer under heavy regulation and there is not a taxpayer life line. Additionally small businesses make up over 80 percent of our hiring base.
