Blatent Fear Mongering

Listening to the rhetoric of an impending catastrophe and that we are in a disaster, I can't help but think that this is nothing more than fear mongering. Fear is an effective, but utterly useless form of motivation. And President Obama is only continuing the drumbeat started by former President Bush and his Treasury Secretary. We passed the $700 billion TARP funding using the same arguments. And we can already see how that performed. Shaping up to be a gigantic waste of our future tax dollars.

I recall a phrase that my mom used to say, "I'm going to do something, even if it's wrong!" I firmly believe that is the current mantra from our Federal government.

Mark my words. This path of a dominant Federal government, combined with it's socialistic economic policies will result in the near term with increased inflation, the governments best friend.
