Santelli's tea party

Count Mrs. Marathon Pundit and I as among the people who did not get our nation into this housing bubble mess. We've lived in the same home for 10 years, we pay our mortgage (which we made sure we could afford when we got it), and we pay on time.

Fortunately for us, we have not had any life-altering events that prevent us from making payments

We are not real estate speculators.

Millions of stupid people thought they could get around the system, and non they're paying the price for it. And I'm not talking about the people who've had bad breaks such as job losses, health issues and the like.

But they represent the minority of those who got us into this housing mess.

CNBC's Rick Santelli is fed up. He's calling for a new tea party.

So is Anne Leary of Backyard Conservative.

There is lots of blame to go around, of course, but what pisses me off is Santelli is one of those assholes who keeps blaming the poor in this country for the downturn of our economy, when it’s guys like him who have made MILLIONS BY SUCKING OFF THE SHADOW ECONOMY TIT and can’t understand why our nation has spun out of control! They’re the ones who are to blame and who are the losers.

Assholes. I’m so sick of them. Could someone please round up the greedy fuckers of our nation and shove some tea bags up their asses so they can have a party as Santelli suggests in his little rant? Thank you!

What is happening today in the stock market and in our economy was already underway under George Bush, you know, the president who didn’t do a damn thing to plug the hole in the ship. Had his neocons in the House & Senate in 2005 passed laws to regulate the banking industry, our economy may very well be a ton better today. Instead, we have President Obama who is being blamed by the greedy wingers like Santelli for trying to make right with the American people, which tells me that Wall Street and the companies associated with it don’t give a flying rats ass about this country. At all.

Santelli is the loser. And a maggot. The End.

Santelli and douchebags like him are as much to blame for our sorry state as anybody.

Once all the stops signs and speed limits were repealed, so banks and credit cards could charge as much interest as they wanted, and the derivatives industry turned into an explosion of bets on bets on bets, the finance industry sucked all the oxygen out of the economy.

Santelli hates 'losers', but you better believe he loves 'suckers'. Don't be one.
