My Issues with Bill Hennessy, one of the Tea Party founders

Bookmark and Share

First, I want to say that I appreciate that Bill Hennessy, one of the founders of the Tea Party, allowed my comments on his blog. Here is the thread and I will post the comments here as well with some thoughts.

But please understand that I have issues with Bill and the Tea Party in general. If he responds to any of my concerns I would be appreciative, but as it is he, unlike some mainstream conservative websites, allows the freedom of thought and that is important to all discussions and all learning.

My concern was first posed with this comment to the above link:

You know the problem that I have with you Bill? Actually, it is in the form of three basic problems.

1. The government is not in charge. The international banker cartel is in charge. So for you to say you are giving the power of government from government to the people is disingenuous. We have a problem with corporate fascism, not communism. The middle class was robbed by corporate ponzi fascism.

2. Wall Street is bleeding and wants social security. They are losing the boomers, the money is staying on the sidelines, and 401k money is being withdrawn for hardship. Wall Street greed is fueling the CNBC push for social security money. Quit helping them and don’t allow the banks to divide the old from the young.

Wall Street has a scam, and that is to divide mainstreet so that mainstreet gets all confused and cannot see that these bankers are the evil ones. And I mean starting with the private Federal Reserve Bank, and the Basel 2 central banks who allowed hiding bad loans in 1998. They allowed off balance sheet banking Bill. That and the repeal of Glass-Steagall were the root causes of the credit crisis, Bill.

3. The government may have pushed loans for the poor. But those loans make up a small portion of loans that have gone bad. And the banks set up a system for the problem with bad loans. The repeal of Glass-Steagall, that allowed insurance to be written on the bad loans, allowed banks to write loans on all manner of credit scores with lies and with no documentation. You know who spearheaded the repeal and the scam? Phil Gramm, a Republican. And the vote was 90 to 8 with a pox on both parties, Bill! They all ought to be prosecuted if they gained one thin dime from the repeal, Bill.

Option arm loans and jumbo loans had nothing to do with the original subprime loans. Henry Paulson said those were contained, and if those had been the only bad loans he would have been right. Turns out they were a small portion of the bad loans. So quit blaming the poor people for the credit crisis Bill!

So interested in your response if you could give us something to believe in here.

Comedy, hear me out. There will be more coming. There are issues here that will put the US in jeopardy if the Tea Party has its way. And BTW, Fox news is wrong to blame the borrowers and not the banks, primarily, as being the force behind the ponzi bank loans. The driver of the car is to blame, Comedy.

Buildings are quite expensive and not every person is able to buy it. But, credit loans was invented to help different people in such hard situations.

It looks like there are issues going on between the political parties and it is not the right thing to share this in a social media. Authorities need to show more unity in thier activities for ensuring the devolopment processes are going well. best place to buy diamond rings
