Just Wondering

You know, being broke most of the time, the prospect of other people going broke isn't quite the grab for us that perhaps it should be. Just don't ask to share our coupons, OK? Besides, even if it is rich people going broke, dude, you get used to it.

Well, that being said, we admit we have been watching the journey of the Rich People Bailout bill now making its way through Congress under the kindly ministrations of Secretary of the Treasury Paulson, and one element of the bill brings a query to our otherwise preternaturally addled pate. The particular interrogative arises from Section 8 of the bill which goes something like this:

"Sec. 8. Review. Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency."

All of which causes us to wonder, what makes him so special?

I am sure we are all "just wondering" about the twenty-six firms being investigated by the FBI...
What is also not the grab it used to be, is the fact that perhaps , Davis, who works for McCain, is connected to some of it....I mean, do we have to keep repeating it, over and over again? As if Bush-Cheney wasn't already enough?
Now, McCain, under pressure with a ton of bricks falling, wants to postpone the debate and of course, that makes Palin, too.
These Republicans keep on refining their oh so inventive tools...and I am just wondering, if the public is finally going to get it.
After all....the electricity is gone; the gas is gone; and the plumbing is all shot to hell. And the real workmen are all jobless and losig their homes.
