For God's Sake, Congress, Take Your Fucking Time

So now we have Paulson and Bush arguing that Congress needs to shove through a legislative response to the markets right fucking NOW OH GOD NOW DO IT NOW, the exact same way it shoved through the Authorization for Use of Military Force in 2001. You know, the document that was meant to justify a war with the Taliban and instead authorized seven years of American forces occupying a large chunk of the Middle East? Oh, and let's not forget the USA PATRIOT Act blitzed through Congress in 2001 as well, which has been used to justify all sorts of unconstitutional dragnet surveillance on the domestic population of America.

Quick action in a committee is almost never good idea because something inevitably gets fucked in the process. To respond to such a massive paradigm shift in the American market with a quick fix is unconscionable.

For god's sake, Congress, take your fucking time drawing up that rescue plan, and don't let the lame duck quacking in your ear rush you into a poor decision.
