    I have mentioned before that Barry views this as 'found money' to be used for new programs, not to pay off the deficiet as orginially claimed.

    Money from the TARP that has been returned by the banks will be "recycled" to support spending elsewhere. But I thought this needed legislative approval first?

    The money got "earmarked" after the President declared that it had to be passed faster than light -- it was that urgent -- even though most of it wasn't scheduled to be spent (and hasn't been) for several years.

    What the damn rush was, in that case, nobody can say.

    But we do know what we ended up with.

    The world's largest-ever fucking SLUSH FUND.

    It will not be piddling millions or even a couple of billion which gets siphoned off, mysteriously and untraceably.

    It will be tens of billions.

    We have to take Congress back and it has to be on some pretty damn specific terms.

    One of the MAJOR things we HAVE to do, immediately upon reclaiming power from these disgraceful Democratics, is REPEAL as much of the hideous stuff they have done as we can.
