U.S.of F.

How We Became the United States of France

Admit it, mes amis, the rugged individualism and cutthroat capitalism that made America the land of unlimited opportunity has been shrink-wrapped by a half dozen short sellers in Greenwich, Conn. and FedExed to Washington D.C. to be spoon-fed back to life by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson.

Was it done on Purpose? Larisa Alexandrovna writes at the Huffington Post:

This manufactured crisis is now to be remedied, if the fiscal fascists get their way, with the total transfer of Congressional powers (the few that still remain) to the Executive Branch and the total transfer of public funds into corporate (via government as intermediary) hands.

One thing is sure, those who still think W. really is a small-government conservative at heart should put their remaining life savings into white flags.

Conservatives who hoped that the Bush team would leave a legacy of smaller government, freer markets and fewer regulations can officially kiss that hope goodbye.
