There is no lack of government oversight.

 

It's just all to frequently looking in the wrong direction or in bed with that which it is supposed to regulate.

IMO is was big government at it's worse with bad rules to provide a false sense of security

 

 

for expample, too big too fail empowered financial institiutional to extend credit amongst themselves without much attention to each others balance sheet on the basis that the governement would step in and cover any losses.

 

Has too big to fail not exist, then they would have done a better job of policing eachother in the form of tighter lending limits and higher interest rates - for risky banks and rewards of lower cost of funds for well capitilized banks.

 

 

With Enron, I have to say is was a case if stupid accounting rules and little enforcement that let a simple fraud (a few fake signatures) have a massive affect on Enron's balance sheet.

Drafted a resolution to send to the NAACP last night, it was delivered this morning in KC. Glad to see them stand up for themselves.

 

St. Louis Tea Party Coalition ResolutionJuly 12, 2010

Whereas, the National Coalition for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded to advance the position of minority groups, and

 

Whereas a hallmark of the NAACP has been to do the important work of identifying and exposing remaining vestiges of racism and discrimination, and

 

Whereas the NAACP vocally stands against the discriminatory and harmful practice of labeling people with a broad brush, and

 

Whereas the NAACP decided to launch their 101st National Convention with a resolution condemning the Tea Party movement and labeling millions of their fellow Americans who subscribe to the movement as "racists", and

 

Whereas the "Tea Party movement" is a label applied to patriotic Americans who have expressed their political free speech in the grand tradition of all that is American, that being the spirited expression of viewpoints in a 100% peaceful manner, and

 

Whereas, it is a hallmark of America that we settle our disputes civilly and avoid the gutter tactic of attempting to silence opponents by inflammatory name-calling, andWhereas the very term "racist" has diminished meaning due to its overuse by political partisans including members of the NAACP, and

 

Whereas, the NAACP had an opportunity to preserve some semblance of legitimacy by standing up for Ken Gladney, the victim of a vicious racist battery conducted by a black avowed communist, even labeling him an "Uncle Tom", but chose instead to use the opportunity to mock the St. Louis Tea Party, and

 

Whereas, the NAACP has refused to denounce the New Black Panther's call to murder white cops and their babies, and

 

Whereas, the NAACP does its entire membership a grave disservice by hypocritically engaging in the very conduct it purports to oppose,

 

Now therefore be it resolved that the St. Louis Tea Party condemns the NAACP for lowering itself to the dishonorable position of a partisan political attack dog organization, and,

 

Be it further resolved that the St. Louis Tea Party calls on similar organizations to join in unanimous condemnation of this despicable behavior, and

 

Be it further resolved that we demand that the NAACP withdrawal their bigoted, false and inflammatory resolution against the tea party for any further consideration, and

 

Be it further resolved that these organizations call on the Internal Revenue Service to evenly apply their standards and consider the tax-exempt status of the NAACP considering the degree to which they are engaging in habitual partisan political behavior.

 

Adopted unanimously, this day, July 12th, in the year of our Lord, 2010.

The "year of our lord" is a good touch too.

 

Do you have any opinion or thoughts on the subject of the resolution, or the reasons it was written?

in general I find this recent spate of Right wing demands for groups to denounce things to be childish.

I'm of the opinion that that resolution is so far beyond stupid that I kept waiting for a .410 reference.

in all fairness.....

 

Now therefore be it resolved that the St. Louis Tea Party condemns the NAACP for lowering itself to the dishonorable position of a partisan political attack dog organization, and,

 

that's pretty funny,

the 410 crowd can't wield irony like that.
