    Talking Could President Bush use the financial meltdown like he did 9/11? :P

    Hey gang - I just got my new TinFoil Hat (Version 6.0) and thought I'd take this bad boy out for a spin! Since the financial markets are melting down, I would like to put forward this concept:

    WaMu (assets $310 Billion) will be taken over by FDIC; since recent bank closures have cost the FDIC 10-15% (per the FDIC), this means the resulting $30 - $45 Billion hit on the Insurance Fund will all but wipe out the FDIC. This will cause great financial difficulties - perhaps even a "Catastrophic Emergency". Bush then puts into effect NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD 51 (News Archive - May, 2007...), which allows him to cancel the General Election, shit-can Congress and the Supreme Court and do whatever any other Tin Pot Dictator would do in these situations. And he will, of course, agree to lift this SPD 51 as soon as possible - as soon as the financial markets have stabilized. Which, as we all learned with the Iraq situation, will be never! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

    So.....how do you guys like my new Tin Foil Hat (Version 6.0) - pretty awesome, huh???

    If Bush tried to do anything to stay in power there would be revolt across party lines.

    He'd finally be impeached and removed from office!

    Does that mean people depending on the FDIC to back their WaMu accounts might not get their money?

    What I heard on the radio yesterday is that the FDIC will probably get more money from the US Treasury. You know, from taxpayers!

    Can't we just print some more money y'all?
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Bush can't use it ... but McCain might be able to if Obama falls into the trap of looking like he enjoys it is happening.
