Emergency Session

Once again we have called an emergency session of Poose Congress to alert everyone of the latest blunder of GW the Chimp. We URGE your pet humans to sign this petition. Why should the tax payers bail out the richest, greediest companies of this country. (Instead that money should be used to feed homeless pooses and people and of course pay off our credit card debts!)

Oh... we decided to let Disneyland keep the statue of Johnny Depp at the Pirates of the Caribbean. This was a much more important issue to fight for!



Congress is on the brink of making a one-sided deal to give George W. Bush a blank check to bail out his pals - offering nearly (or perhaps more than) a trillion taxpayer dollars to Wall Street to cover its bad debts. That works out to somewhere between $2000 and $5000 from every American family. So what do the taxpayers get in return?

Nothing. No new regulation or oversight to help avoid this kind of crisis in the future. No public interest givebacks to help people whose homes are in the hands of the banks. Perhaps most shockingly of all, the taxpayers get absolutely no share in the profits if and when these finance giants bounce back, even though we are now assuming a great deal of the risk.

This is worse than a bad deal - this isn't a deal at all. This is a blank check to some of the richest companies in the world.

I just signed a petition calling on key members of Congress to impose a few sensible conditions to this bailout in order to protect the American people -- I hope you will too.

Please have a look and take action.

Thanks for the update. We are hoping and praying that it really is just a couple more months of the Chimp and not a few more years with McChimp... Sigh.
