Connect The Motherfucking Dots

April 23, 2010

Interesting:

Republicans are stepping up their criticism of the Securities and Exchange Commission following reports that senior agency staffers spent hours surfing pornographic websites on government-issued computers while they were supposed to be policing the nation’s financial system.

California Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said it was “disturbing that high-ranking officials within the SEC were spending more time looking at porn than taking action to help stave off the events that put our nation’s economy on the brink of collapse.”

* * *

The number of cases jumped from two in 2007 to 16 in 2008. The cracks in the financial system emerged in mid-2007 and spread into full-blown panic by the fall of 2008.

Republican lawmakers also accused the SEC of being influenced by politics. The SEC’s commissioners approved the Goldman charges on a rare 3-2 vote. The two who objected were Republicans.

Hmm. Now let’s think back a few years, and ask ourselves who would have been responsible for running the SEC and had a majority on its Board in 2007 and 2008? Who was completely dismantling the Federal regulatory apparatus, removing long-term expert professional civil servants and replacing them with depraved party hacks? Fuck if I can remember, because, you know, the world we live in only began in January, 2009.

    What really happened and who’s really responsible doesn’t matter. The repugnants will find a way to convince everyone that Obama is responsible, the evil socialist that he is.. Unfortunately, logic and politics don’t mix.


  2. Are you gonna give us the answers or just leave us hanging?

    Had to be Tip O’Neill…and probably Barney Faaa..Franks too, Hippie.


  4. I fault the nation’s top newspapers, news magazines, and television news with not speaking the proper truth behind all of these goatfucks that are coming to roost right now, such as the loss of non-profit tax-exempt status due to a little gift buried in the Pension Protection Act of 2006.
