Read what Robert Borsage has to say about the Republican leadership and the big banks. Click an the link below to read the full article. The Tea Baggers are organized and make a big splash in the media every day. People like us, who by far are the majority in this country sit by, don’t make a stir and the media ignores us.
Republican leaders — led by the perpetually tanned John Boehner, House Republican leader, and his whip Eric Cantor — are looking to sell themeselves to big bankers angry about financial reform.
Cantor says: a lot of bankers who supported Obama are feeling “buyers' remorse.” His answer? Buy us.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Boehner pitched Jamie Dimon, head of JP Morgan Chase for Republicans, arguing that Republicans are there for him, standing up to block any financial reforms, opposed to taxes on big banks, opposed to cracking down on speculation, opposed to protecting consumers. And, Rs have proven that they will stay bought.
Have the tea baggers heard about this? Seems like an odd alliance — folks justifiably outraged at the bank bailout with conservatives who are openly solicting bank money in exchange from blocking any and all reforms.

The only comments that I have been getting lately are spam, which, of course, are deleted immediately and not posted. It would be nice if those of you who read my blog and have some relevant things to say would post something.

Working on another project – I have about a hundred color slides of my dad’s paintings. What the titles of them, when they were painted and where they presently are were never catalouged. I am currently scanning them and putting them in a web album. You can view the ones I have done so far by going to this link: http://picasaweb.google.com/danvolper/PaintingsByIVVolper
I’m also working on a web page:
I am putting together some information on my father so those who are interested in his paintings will know a little more about him.
