When I think about this Wall Street giveaway my whole chest tightens up and I feel kind of nauseous and start walking around in circles and all I can think about is bipartisanship, what a hideous concept! Bipartisanship means Barack Obama and John McCain sit down together and figure out how to continue the systematic dismantling of any structural mechanisms for care in this country. Sit down and figure out how more people can lose their homes and lose their jobs and lose their families and get gunned down on US borders and shut away in slave labor prisons and, yes, I know that's not literally what they talked about. I know they talked about saving the US economy, which means saving the US war on Iraq and Afghanistan, saving the Israeli apartheid system, saving Guantánamo and who knows how many other secret prisons and terror campaigns and wars.
Yes, let's just funnel $700 billion over to Wall Street and everything will be fine, that's right just fine! Nancy Pelosi says there's "plenty of time to do more," plenty of time for more dead Iraqi children she means. Nancy Pelosi - "my" representative - the person most responsible for continuing the war in Iraq as far as I'm concerned, the one holding together this mythology of bipartisanship which means continuing the status quo at any cost.
