Skip to comments.Fire Reid Already
Posted on 07/29/2014 10:12:01 AM PDT by Kaslin
Shortly before the market crash in 2008, when oil prices were at all-time highs, Harry Reid, Democrat Senate Majority Leader, sold his investments in the energy industry-- according to his public filings-- and bought the healthcare industry instead.
Thanks to the ensuing banking panic caused by skyrocketing oil prices and their subsequent crash, Barack Obama was elected president of the United States. Obama, history now tells us, made one of his first tasks to enrich Wall Street and healthcare companies through the fundamental transformation of healthcare into a government owned subsidiary.
And now you know, in a thumbnail sketch, how Harry Reid became a millionaire through public service. Hes repeated that variation until wealthy. Thats how a guy who has been living on the public payroll most of his whole life as Reid has, lives at the Ritz Carlton in Washington, DC.
And thats how Harry Reid has been operating for years.
Whether its former aides working for green energy companies and suckling at the public treasury in the forms of loans and subsidies, or the great market timing that you happen to have when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid keeps cashing in on his celebrity. Its too bad he cant use that investing acumen to bail out Social Security. Or pay for Obamacare. Or create a functioning website.
And thats really the point, isnt it?
For a group of people who have screwed up our economy, public policy, and politics over the last 8 years-- voting for wars before they voted against them, voting for everything before they pay for it, or even read whats in it-- Obama, Pelosi and Reid certainly know how to take care of themselves. I predict Obama will become the first former president to be worth a billion dollars.
And its time for them to go.
All. Of. Them.
From the lickspittles on the GOP side that wink and nod because they plunder too, to the private people like Al Gore who enrich themselves on the public stage, they promote a concept of fairness that only applies to you and me --never to them.
After spending trillions on an economic recovery that never happened, Main Street is still struggling under the load of new rules and regulations that the government cant even follow. Yet still they require the compliance of citizens absolutely.
Or theyll sic the IRS on you. Or the NSA. Or the FBI. Or any one of a number of public security forces now operating within the federal government.
This while Obama plays golf, and Reid and Pelosi play the stock market with money given to them by the Federal Reserve Bank.
The Federal Reserve meanwhile spent $4 trillionincluding $1.6 trillion in housing-- trying to create jobs-- but still didnt have the money to bailout the banking system, as a reserve bank is supposed to do. The federal government has spent literally trillions more in regulations and rules and laws that stop job creation, yet somehow you, me and everyone else who pays taxes aren't paying our fair share. Companies are fleeing abroad with capital, even as politicians point the finger of blame at institutions; institutions mind you that have a legal responsibility for profitability even if politicians believe themselves to have no legal responsibility at all.
Obama, Reid and Pelosi promote pension plans and healthcare schemes and subsidies that would land anyone else in the private sector in prison. They preach, and scold and interfere in our lives. They tear us down and tear us apart.
And we cant go on this way.
Because while you and I struggle, they get promoted to the Ritz Carton in Washington, DC.
Why would they change?
You need to fire them.
All. Of. Them.
Otherwise it will get ugly.
I mean even uglier than now.
Thanks for this thread - - - ‘bout time!
Can’t say anything good about ‘dingy’, so might be best to say, “Yes, do it already!”
I’m looking forward to hearing them speak about the “late” Harry Reid.
Find a way to get his own base to turn on him because it’s not going to happen with the Republicats in office right now. We just have a bare remnant of real Republicans; the rest are RINOs that almost seem to have been planted by the DemoRats themselves to rig the system.
Dingy Harry along with many others are corrupt to the core.
Maybe I’m wrong but since 0bama grifted his way into the WH it seems more and more of these corrupt turkeys don’t care that it’s known.
Much like 0bama they’re open about the corruption and are arrogantly in-your-face hostile about it.
I long for the good old days, when "get a rope" was the saying in vogue.
A considerable number of folks here on Free Republic are working hard to see to it that Harry Reid is once again the Majority Leader of the Senate come January. That makes no sense for Conservatives to be doing that, but they are and been quite vocal about it.
Unfortunately I think you are correct. They just don’t get it
Bump to read to spouse.
There was a golden chance to fire Reid in 2010... we know how that worked out.. two years to go.
Two that I’d like to refer to as “late”.... Reid and George Soros.
Let’s not forget to add Mrs. Pelosi in that group.
I say we go straight to 'ugly'.
“There are no sides. There’s no Sunnis and Shiites. There’s no Democrats and Republicans. There’s only HAVES and HAVE-NOTS.”
Every time I hear that line, I think of Harry.
Yep....the PURIST Freeper voters will make sure that Reid and Pelosi are in charge of everything because SOME of OUR side isn’t CONSERVATIVE enough sometimes!!!
The problem is the party in charge, not the senile old fool who is their frontman.
