not really a Fatwa, but kinda

Ok, you may remember I did a piece called ‘Fatwa‘ recently about my perceived enemies and how I wish them ill.  Frankly, it’s childish… yet effective.  I talked about my hatred of terrorist sympathizer and state enemy Robert Novak.  Then he got brain cancer.  I talked about what a monster hemmoroid Alaska congressman Ted Stevens was, for too many reasons to bother elaborating.  He is now on trial, and will likely die penniless, out of office, and humiliated.  I am not saying that was my wish, but that is what is happening. *** see update

Most recently, I added the deplorable Rev Fred Phelps (God Hates Gays) as someone I wish to see just plain die.  That hasn’t happened yet, but my confidence in my track record is secure.  So, there is another name I would like to add.  I don’t seek to see him dead, as he is a tad less odious than Phelps.

SEC chairman Henry Paulson.  This guy made zillions working for one of these investment banks (Goldman Sachs, look it up).  He made 38 million that year.  Fine, that is his business, good for him.  Then, like a genius, President Bush tapped this guy to be in charge of all of Wall Street.  Makes sense, right?  I mean, who knows Wall St better than a dude making 38 million a year?  Well, he was hired to be the top cop.  He took the job.  He eliminated control, oversight, and regulation with the help of his free market GOP buddies.

Then, despite warnings for years… did nothing.  Now, he is responsible for the biggest financial meltdown in the history of the United States.  Great work.  So, was he fired?  Nope.  Did he even apologize?  nope.  In fact, he needs to borrow 7 Billion from you.  Yes, the guy who just caused the world economy to drop into a recession, and lost a few hundred billion of our GNP wants a loan.

How is this guy not in prison?  How can we have ANY faith in our leadership if we let them loan the guy who broke the economy more money.  I mean, you pass the same bum every day.  You don’t still give him money, do you?  His sign says “need money for new clothes”, but every day for 8 years you gave him cash and he never showed up in new clothes.  You sense maybe he was spending the money on booze.  Ok, whatever.  That is his business.  Now that same bum just asked you for 7 billion dollars.

Yeah, I want Paulson fired.  Then, put on trial for egregious abuse of tax payer dollars and trust.  I can’t way I want him dead, but until he takes some accountability, I certainly do not wish him health.  Now, Mr Paulson… the ball is in your court.  You can ignore me, like Novak did, and get brain cancer.  Or…

*** apparently, I am more effective than I thought.  Stevenson died in a horrible plane crash while awaiting trial.  I didn’t want him dead, just out of office and away from power.  Fred Phelps, on the other hand, I want dead

  1. Dear ‘Trav’,

    Thanks for your feedback. You bring up two salient points in your comments, which I appreciate.

    firstly: do not EVER correct me

    second: good point. I want them BOTH on my shit list. Who I talk to about getting that updated?
