The Definition of Insanity….

Well, here we go again.  Just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any more bizarre.  Have you heard who the new head of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is?  Mel Watt wass appointed by Obama himself to oversee the federal loan institutions.  This normally wouldn’t be a problem.  Except Mel Watt is a big ol’ buddy of Barney Frank’s and, as reported in the Ulsterman Report,

“The North Carolina congressman is a consistent, long-time supporter of affordable-housing quotas. He joined Barney Frank in 2003 to block the Bush administration’s attempt that year to increase government oversight of Fannie and Freddie.

In 2002, Watt  teamed up with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, Bank of America, BB&T, and UJAMMA Inc., to announce Pathways to Homeownership, a pilot initiative designed to give home loans to welfare recipients . . .

In 2007, a full year after the real estate market peaked and began to plummet under the weight of millions of mortgage defaults, Watt and Frank co-sponsored a bill forcing Fannie and Freddie to meet even higher quotas for affordable lending. “

Is this for real?  Isn’t that a little like the fox guarding the hen house?  Did Obama even THINK about this one or did he just pull the most IMPLAUSIBLE name out of a hat and go “Yeah, sure- I’m cool with that.”

Oh, and did I mention he’s a socialist?

Guess we’re looking at  The Great Recession Part Deux headed our way, kiddies, if not worse.

I cannot make this shit up.  If I was blogging on COMPLETE FICTION I’m not sure I could come up with a scenario that good.  And this all brings us back to the same question I’ve been asking myself for the last five years:  Who the hell is running the country?!?!?  Is there ANYONE in Washington that’s paying attention to this crap?  Aside from Ted Cruz and a handful of compatriots, does Washington just not give a shit about the American people?  I think we can safely answer that with a resounding NO.  With the exception of Ted Cruz et al, the “politicians” in D.C. have long since given up on the American population, a basic sense of honor, rational thought and having any trace of a soul.  There is no moral compass they follow, no rational explanation for their actions other than financial gain.  That’s what it is really all about for people like Reid and Pelosi and Graham and their ilk.  It’s all about the Benjamins.  As long as they have theirs, who cares?

This is NOT the country I grew up in.  And take a good look around, because it will be even more screwed up tomorrow.  I’m one person.  I don’t know what to do anymore.  So, I’m starting from where I’m at. My kids have more integrity and honor than ANYONE on Capitol Hill.  They were raised with a sense of self-responsibility and they know the difference between truth and bullshit, right and wrong.  They and other kids like them are our last best ‘hope.  And I hope like hell they can maintain the path they’re on-they’re the last chance we got…..
