Senate vote Wed. at earliest on bailout
Reuters - Sunday, September 28 10:14 pm

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Legislation providing up to $700 billion (381.4 billion pound) to bail out the U.S. financial industry will be voted on in the U.S. Senate no earlier than Wednesday, sources close to the discussions said on Sunday.

The House of Representatives will vote on the bill on Monday, said House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat.

But the Senate faces more complex problems in passing legislation. Before bills get to the floor, leaders must determine whether any senator is considering procedural hurdles to slow down action. And a Jewish holiday that starts at sundown on Monday will put off any Senate work through Tuesday.

"The earliest the Senate could get to it is Wednesday," said one source, who asked not to be identified...

Even in a so called Crisis nothing can get between a government employee and a paid holiday.

Good News! Time to make calls to the Senate, but we NEED CALLS NOW to the House.

I heard Mike Pence on radio this evening say he was voting NO along with about 75 other Republicans in the House. Please call your Rep and ask for a NO vote....whether Republican or Democrat. Remember, there are many many Democrat voters who are against this bailout just like us conservatives!

CALL NOW 800-828-0498 or 800-965-4701

Since when were Jewish holidays paid government employee holidays? No wonder Senate appears to be doing nothing all the time. They take the paid time off for all religions holidays, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddist etc.

It's no wonder there seems to be mass confusion among the senate dealing with this problem-- they were all off on holidays, stuffing their faces with fine foods and expensive booze at taxpayers expense, but had to cut their Ramadan time off short and fly back to Washington...

"Try a Yahoo news search for 'bailout protest'. Amazing. You may want to attend one. "

Yeah, no "bail out" let those nasty "big corrupt banks and businesses collapse in an orgy of greed.

Funny, it seems all those that would attend these 'protests' are people who don't have anything invested anywhere, or think their Mutal funds etc. are safe.

Little do they know that is is the shareholders, bondholders etc. big and small who loose everything first. If anyone thinks their retirement funds they have with a trust company isn't in danger, they are fooling themselves. These companies take those funds and invest them in stocks bonds bank shares etc. to make money. They loose- you loose.

Good to see there are at least some posters thinking clearly on this issue.

They loose- you loose.

They win - I still lose. That sounds pretty fair to me.

I am sick and tired of immoral, selfish, greedy people running the USofA. It has got to stop.

http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml

Click on US Senators or US Representatives, find yours, click on Contact (or on the name and find their contact information from their Senate Website) and email your letter.

I can't do it any more. I'm emotionally beat up. I sent emails to Senate Democrats on Saturday and Republicans and Independents on Sunday. I don't have it in me to keep fighting against these selfish, greedy people. They don't win, I just am tired of it.

Anyone who runs against Nathan Deal, Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson will get my vote. Change their diapers, clean their office out, find a fresh face willing to stand up for what is good, right and just.

Micah 6:8 I will show thee, O man, what is good, and what the Lord requireth of thee: Verily, to do judgment, and to love mercy, and to walk solicitous with thy God. (Douay-Rheims)
Micah 6:8. He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

I am Diogenes, the man who walked the streets of Athens, Greece, (or the Internet) during the day time, with a lighted lantern -- looking for an honest man.

Except I'm a woman, but who'd know the difference today? So I'm Diogenetta or Diogeneen or Senegoid. No one really cares anyway. The world is hell-bent on the destruction of the USofA. From the inside as well as foreigners who cross the border illegally to drain us dry. They don't care as long as they get theirs. They're no different from Pelosi and Frank and Reid and Dodd. They don't follow the rules and no one stops them. Because no one cares if this Country ends up bankrupt. At least "they" got theirs.

Well, la-dee-dah. I hope they're happy when the Muslims over run us or Socialism overtakes us and they find out that they're not going to be at the top of the food chain any longer. I just don't understand why people decide not to be patriotic. Humans befoul their abode. Even the grossest of animals don't poop and pee where they live. Pelosi and Frank and Reid and Dodd have shat in their own house and are covered in shat and don't even acknowledge it.
