Stop what you're doing and take one minute to sign the Taxpayers Against a Wall Street and Mortgage Bailout online petition


8,200 signatures so far today. Come on folks - and fellow bubble bloggers - let's get that to 80,000

Sign here. It's easy.

To: President Bush, Senator Hillary Clinton, Senator Christopher Dodd, Senator Charles Schumer and members of Congress

Please do not support the efforts to bail out mortgage holders and mortgage lenders with my tax dollars.

As a responsible citizen, I do not believe it is right for you to ask me to pay for other peoples’ financial excesses, especially since a bailout encourages lenders to continue making predatory loans, with the assumption that taxpayers are on the hook. Further, we believe that the liability of the mortgage mess should NOT be shifted to GSE’s Freddie and Fannie.

I appreciate the goal of helping people to have access to housing, but any proposed bailout will only reward lenders and borrowers who acted irresponsibly, and it will punish people who work hard and diligently manage their finances by not buying houses which they cannot afford.

The housing market has begun a process of correction. This is necessary in order to keep housing affordable in the long-term. Let the market correct so we can achieve stability again, and people are able to save and afford the house of their dreams over time. That really is the true American Dream.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

Online petitions are just like online polls. They have no tangible significance on anything. The ballot box is where people can make a statement.

AND REMEMBER, THE ECONOMY IS COUNTING ON YOU!!!

THANK YOU...

Online petitions are a waste of time! The ballot box is too vague!

I dont understand why its not 800 Thousand on it already...I hear the complaining about it at work and on the street but nobody seems willing to step up.

America should be marching on the White house in response to this crime against the honest taxpayer.

F*ck Bush.

Hopefully the Chinese will 'entertain' him when he arrives for the Olympics.

Oh, I forgot: F*ck Cheney twice as hard as Bush.

The Big House Crew are keeping a cot warm for both.

very concerned said...

Under the contracts clause in the US Constitution, the government has no right to abrogate private contracts. Oh, wait. It's just a piece of paper now.

Awwwww, man. Why such deep hatred ? Didn't you Americano voted for this Saint twice in a roll ? Don't you Americano have one of those yellow shitty stain ribbon sticking in the back of your chicken-coop SUV ? Man, where is the Americano's love for the SHRUB leader ?

.....

What will it take to restore the Americano nation AKA the land of the Snapper Turtle to its former prosperity and security ?

Probably not in Dubya's lifetime.

The correction will have to be severe and painful. Joe6Pack + JaneZinfandel will have to lose at least 100 pounds each in their filthy bodily fat, retrain in their piggy food consumption habit and practice restraint in their hog-fun reproductive orgy. Can it be done ? Yes, but bitterly and painfully the exercise will be.

And if there is even little shred of Dubya's worshipping residing in Joe6Pack's + JaneZinfandel's donkey brain, then all bets are off.

Why ? The simple equation next will prove that the Americano is as toasted as a snapper turtle skewered on a green Chinese bamboo stick, sizzling nicely, fat popping, juices smokeing, dripping aromatically on a bed of red hot charcoal, as long as Dubya is still sitting in the John's Throne.

BUSHY = Real-Public-Cuunnt !

So, are we roasted yet ? Is it done nicely already ? How will the Americano survive with an Escalade and $5.00/gallon gasoline price ? How is the Hicks family coming along ? How is uncle Cracker Nuthead doing out there up in HillBilly's land with the sheeps and the goats ?

The petition sounds like a plea from the surfs to the land barons. Do you think they will listen to this squeeking? It should be a fearful declaration to the corrupted pigs who were elected as public servants.

Properly twisted logic says:

If you can't afford your payment, the govern-mint should bail you out.

OK....got that....but if you can't afford your payment, you must need more help (and I need more votes).

Here's the plan...you won't have to pay income tax anymore. We'll just double up on the other folks, 'specially if'n their house is paid for...they must have plenty, I figure.

Satisfied yet?

Don't forget me, this fall, ya' hear?

Hillbamacain & friends
