What the Heck is Going on?

So I read today that John McCain is criticizing Obama for not coming up with a plan on how to fix the Wall Street crisis.  Fair enough.

But McCain’s plan wants to put all sorts of new restrictions and oversight on Wall Street banks.  This coming from the party of “small government.”

Then, in Congress, the Democrats are trying to limit the role of the Treasury and the Federal Governement in the bailout plan.  

So we have the Republicans trying to add more restrictions and the Democrats trying to reduce the role of the Federal Government.

If this isn’t proof that the two parties have merged into one, I don’t know what is.

    Yeah, go figure. Maybe it’s the “End Times!”

    Don’t you get the feeling we are being tricked into economic slavery?
    Remember how the Patriot Act took away so many freedoms?
    Take a look at some of the wording in this $700 billion bailout:

    “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.”

    Sounds a wee bit totalitarian to me.
