Shorter Yves: Stress test kabuki

Naked Capitalist:

It is pretty clear 100 people and a few weeks (or even a few months) is grossly inadequate for a bank the size and complexity of a Citigroup. Citi has operations in over 100 countries. All 100 examiners can do is make queries along narrow lines, and work with the data presented. This scale of operation won't allow for any verification or recasting of data. There isn't remotely enough manpower.

Lord Eschaton:

believe this is what we in the professional blogging biz call "trolling," but I'll bite. The Left, including yours truly, will create an epic 360 degree shitstorm if Obama and the Dems decide that cutting Social Security benefits is a good idea.

Shorter Sirota: Don't tell me to STFU. Tell everyone else to STFU.

[Welcome, Open Left readers. See response here. UPDATE: To be clear on the sequence, Sirota tells Clintonites to "slither back to their ratholes." Pushback occurs, via posts like this, and email. Sirota then calls the posters stalkers. The sequence of bullying followed by STFU will be obvious to anybody who experienced the primaries. -- lambert] Read below the fold...

Action Alert: National Call in Day for HR 676, single payer

The third Call-In Day on February 12th will target Representatives and the White House.

This Call-In Day has four objectives:
1. If your Rep. hasn’t already, tell them to co-sponsor HR 676.
2. If your Rep. is a past co-sponsor, thank them and urge them to co-sponsor again.
3. Urge your Rep. to attend the Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Health Care’s Congressional forum on Wednesday, February 25, 2009, 2:00pm-4:00pm, 2226 Rayburn House Office Building, to explore the serious flaws in the Massachusetts health plan and why it cannot serve as a national model for providing universal and comprehensive care.
4. Tell President Obama that you support national, single-payer healthcare.

City Council Committee Shows Support for Universal Health Care

The Seattle City Council's Culture, Civil Rights, Health and Personnel committee voted today to move resolution 31111, supporting universal health care, out of committee for a vote by the full council.

If the council passes the resolution, it will do so to show support for U.S. House Representative John Conyers' bill, H.R. 676. If Conyers' bill becomes law it will "create a single-payer, publicly-financed, privately-delivered universal health care program that would cover all Americans without charging co-pays or deductibles," according his Web site.

David Sirota, meet David Sirota

Poor David Sirota is being eaten alive by "Hillary sycophants," with their troubling "I told you sos."
