Therefore I say that it is a narrow policy to suppose that this country or that is to be marked out as the eternal ally or the perpetual enemy of England.
We have no eternal allies, and we have no perpetual enemies.
Our interests are eternal and perpetual, and those interests it is our duty to follow.
A lot of people misunderstand me and my positions and I see that happening with Jane Hamsher. I called her a sellout to her face on her own blog when she backed off the Strong (Medicare +5%) Public Option, but the position she’s taking with Grover “Drown Government in a Bathtub” Norquist is the exact opposite of a sellout and I feel compelled to offer a public defense.
In case you hadn’t noticed the big news this week, the ultimate Friday News Dump Black Hole, is that Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, Timothy Geithner, and Larry Summers have decided, without Congressional Approval, to give Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac not just 800 BILLION but AN UNLIMITED DRAW ON THE EXCHEQUER OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (those big, hi-falutin’ words Caribou Barbie mean basically every tax payin’, gun totin’, freedom luvin’, snow machine drivin’ ‘murican) so they can re-inflate the housing bubble.
Now I personally don’t own a house, but I know those that do and even they should be dismayed. Bailing out Banksters doesn’t create a single job.
So Jane and Grover are getting together to call for an investigation.
Do you support the rule of law for all, or IOKIYAD?
I have perpetual interests instead of eternal allies, but I don’t want you to sign a petition simply because in my little pond I’m a pretty big fish. As Armando says, I speak only for myself.
It’s a decision you should come to on your own.
