Palin’s Personal Email Hacked

Posted by Ryan on September 17, 2008

Word has come out and verified that Sarah Palin’s personal email account was hacked around 3-4am this morning.  The nut-job perps posted personal pictures, her children’s email addresses, and other email addresses.  Not only is this completely out of bounds, it’s also very illegal to invade someone else’s private email account. 

The nut-jobs involved in this illegal activity have apparently justified their position by saying that perhaps some public communications were made from her personal email account that could be used in the increasingly ridiculous and blatantly partisan Troopergate non-scandal. 

Even if all the allegations were completely true, what these nut-jobs did was illegal and hopefully arrests will be made and perp-walks will abound.  This kind of thing needs to stop (notice Obama, McCain nor Biden had to deal with this kind of personal invasion).

AIG Bailout Shortens Path to Socialism

Posted by Sal on September 17, 2008

The AIG bailout by the Federal Reserve involves the FED “loaning” AIG $85 billion in exchange for nearly 80% equity in the company.  Now, it is within the Fed’s charter to loan money;  however, the fact that the Government has now nationalized a major private insurance company (although the Fed denies that this is what was done) is tantamount to socialism.  There seems to be a gradual move for the government to take over these large companies and run them, when it was government “oversight” and regulation that caused this crisis to begin with.  There is simply no legitimate reason that AIG should have this and not Lehman Brothers.  The move is may have been necessary from a practical standpoint, as the failure of AIG would probably have caused several other major U.S. companies to fail as well, but it is a dangerous road we as a nation are embarking on with this new corporate socialism.
