Government Motors Corporation

President Obama's newly discovered prudence with taxpayers money and his tough-love approach to GM and Chrysler would both have more credibility if he hadn't demanded Rick Wagoner's resignation,
as well.

By imposing operational conditions normally reserved for Boards of Directors, the Administration is now bound to the infamous "Pottery Barn" rule: You break it, You buy it. If things go further south, the government is now complicit.

It also means that Wagoner, was perceived as an obstacle to whatever plans the Administration has for GM and that's the real source of concern...

Congress Now Wants To Give Treasury Chief Geithner The Power To Determine Salaries

Rep. Barney Frank D-MA Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee believes that Washington, not you and your employer knows what you should be compensated.

Last week Treasury Secretary Timmy Geithner pleaded that Congress give to him expanded powers to confiscate private businesses.

Congress now wants to give Geithner the power to determine the pay of thousands of American Workers.

A complete take-over of private companies---yesterday Obama, the new defacto President/CEO of Government Motors, seized control of the ailing auto company, after long time GM CEO Rick Wagoner, was fired over the weekend.

Free Market Death Watch has begun. Capitalism is dying under Obama's watch.

Union Workers: Obama Treated UAW worse than Wall Street

"Hope-n-Change" is not making or keeping too many friends.

Conservatives don't trust the Marxist, many Independents have lost confidence in him and now he has got the UAW and AFL/CIO angry with him, calling him a Fink.

Remember Judge Henry X. Harper, from "Miracle on 34th Street" realizing that if he ruled there was no Santa Claus, that he was going to be a "real popular fellow."

Obama has suddenly became a "real popular fellow" among his base, forcing the CEO of a private business out the door, the rank and file have accused the President of a "double standard" not applying the same rules to AIG which awarded bonuses for failure.

Nancy Pelosi: Time To Regulate News

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder announcing her intentions to hold hearings on the
issue of newspaper consolidations in the San Francisco Bay Area, citing anti-trust laws as a potential avenue to do something about this.

The Hearings would be by the Courts and Competition Policy Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee.

While clearly there are serious issues engulfing the newspaper industry in San Francisco and elsewhere, the problem isn't one of anti-trust laws. Pelosi has made her feelings known and would like to return to the Fairness Doctrine.

The industry has been changing for years but other than perhaps some limits on one company owning too many newspapers, television and radio stations in a single market, the government really should have no role in the business of news.

Speaker Pelosi, is determined to regulate what news we can read, watch and listen too, it would make it much easier for Democrats to get their agenda enacted if it wasn't for the 1st Amendment.

In January, I wrote here that Free Speech is essential in the pursuit

Obama Wants His Economic Plan To Fail

Does President Obama truly believe that he can castigate and condemn Wall Street on Monday's, Wednesday's and Friday's and then secure its cooperation on the other days of the week?

Does he not understand that when he ignites a public furor over AIG bonuses and then incites Congress to pass a punitive tax, he sends shivers down the spines of every other corporate executive that makes a lot of money?

Does he seriously believe that Wall Street investors will not worry that their winnings should they join the Treasury as partners in risky investments, would be subject to public abuse publicity and confiscatory taxation?

Of course he realizes that his rhetoric makes it unlikely that his program will succeed. He obviously gets it that the entire concept of public-private partnership is impossible amid a climate of waging class warfare, taxing the rich and heaping contempt on anyone who makes money.

Obama Uses Word "Invest" 18 Times To Describe Deficit Spending

In Obama's prime time press conference last night he used the word "invest" or "investment" 18 different times to describe deficit spending.

Last week the Congressional Budget Office analyzed the President's budget proposals and concluded the deficit would be nearly $2 Trillion Dollars this year and $1.4 Trillion next year---the cumulative deficit forecast over the next decade would equal to $9.3 Trillion Dollars and average 5.3% of gross domestic product. Debt held by the public would rise from 57% of GDP in 2009 to 82% of GDP in 2019

"Hope-n-Change" Seeks Expanded Powers To Seize Control Of Private Companies

The Obama Administration is asking Congress to expand their authority to seize non-bank financial companies such as insurances companies, investment firms and hedge funds in its expanding web
of power.

Treasury Secretary Timmy Geithner is scheduled to argue for the new expanded powers today during his appearance before Congress---when questioned by Michele Bachmann, as to the Constitutional authority to engage in the practices it has undertaken with AIG and other's, Treasury Secretary Geithner, fumbled around for an answer and never could cite the Constitutional provision that authorized the Dept. of Treasury to take any such action.

In a free market economy successful companies grow and expand while failing companies either reorganize or go out of business---the Obama Administration wants the authority to choose which companies should be saved which in its opinion may damage the broader economy.

Under the new authority, Treasury would be allowed to nationalize private businesses by purchasing assets, guanateeing loans, buying equity positions and renegotiate contracts including labor agreements.

Government bailouts of banks, insurance companies and mortgages have put Trillions of taxpayers money at risk during the past year and have resulted in the fiasco such as the AIG debacle which authorized paying executive bonuses for failure.
