Stopping a Financial Crisis, the Swedish Way
By CARTER DOUGHERTY
Published: September 22, 2008
A banking system in crisis after the collapse of a housing bubble. An economy hemorrhaging jobs. A market-oriented government struggling to stem the panic. Sound familiar?
It does to Sweden. The country was so far in the hole in 1992 — after years of imprudent regulation, short-sighted economic policy and the end of its property boom — that its banking system was, for all practical purposes, insolvent.
Sweden did not just bail out its financial institutions by having the government take over the bad debts. It extracted pounds of flesh from bank shareholders before writing checks. Banks had to write down losses and issue warrants to the government.
That strategy held banks responsible and turned the government into an owner. When distressed assets were sold, the profits flowed to taxpayers, and the government was able to recoup more money later by selling its shares in the companies as well

I am in 2012-why are you in 2008? Sweden is lowering taxes for their 2013 budget. Get up to speed here.

Conservatives never call women fat, ugly or old. Sluts? Yes of course if the loose shoe fits

The left, on the other hand, viciously attack conservative women looks.

How much money did Romney make from that company he had to grind up fetuses for profit? There are always exceptions to pro-life where greed's concerned.

Did you ever wonder why Obama voted "present" instead of actually voting on legislation?
Well, here it is in Saul Alinsky's rules:
"From the moment the organizer enters a community he lives, dreams... only one thing and that is to build the mass power base of what he calls the army. Until he has developed that mass power base, he confronts no major issues.... Until he has those means and power instruments, his 'tactics' are very different from power tactics. Therefore, every move revolves around one central point: how many recruits will this bring into the organization, whether by means of local organizations, churches, service groups, labor Unions, corner gangs, or as individuals."
"Change comes from power, and power comes from organization."
And, today, our Congress has been infected with this bullshit. A member of Congress can actually vote "present" and still be counted as part of an assembled quorum.
That's high on the list of bullshit Obama infected Washington with that has to go. We hire members of Congress to vote on legislation. So, make them vote.
... "present" Give me a break.

Transcript: President Clinton explains Iraq strike

CLINTON: Good evening.

Earlier today, I ordered America's armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.

Their purpose is to protect the national interest of the United States, and indeed the interests of people throughout the Middle East and around the world.

Saddam Hussein must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons.

I want to explain why I have decided, with the unanimous recommendation of my national security team, to use force in Iraq; why we have acted now; and what we aim to accomplish.

It's symbolic of the Democrats wanting to replace the concept of the "several free states" with an all-powerful government. They replaced each of the 50 states with a single symbol representing a single person. That's just like some dictator wannabe making statues of himself.
And the Democrats just lap it up....

The Senate has now ditched a public option completely, and the House bill structures its version of a public option in such a way that its premiums would likely be "somewhat higher" than those of private companies, according to an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office. The plan would pay health care providers at negotiated rates, not at substantially lower Medicare rates. Plus, the CBO predicts that the plan would attract less healthy individuals. Furthermore, the public option wouldn’t be available to everyone, at least not at first. By the third year of implementation of the bill, the public plan would be available only to individuals who buy coverage on their own and to small businesses with 100 or fewer employees. Those businesses and individuals would be eligible to buy coverage through the "insurance exchange," which would include several private plans and the public option. Larger employers could become eligible to buy plans through the exchange at the discretion of a "health choices commissioner."

If this type of public option were open to everyone, health care experts at the Lewin Group estimated that it would attract 20.6 million people, 12.5 million of them moving off of private insurance.(The Lewin Group, whose studies have been cited by both political parties, is a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group but says it operates with "editorial independence.") The CBO analyzed the latest House bill specifically and predicted that only 6 million would join the public option.
