I Have A Plan...
The situation as it stands:
Wall Street had been holding its breath, pricing in, and "banking" (betting) on an effective Stimulus Plan, and a new and sensible Bank Rescue Plan. Well, neither are happening, and now we've continued with our regulary-scheduled collapse.
Geithner is a total fucking schmuck, clearly unwilling to properly confront the real problems of his Banker-Buddies' greed, their unwillingness to be honest about the shittiness of their piece of the Big Shitpile, and unwillingness help their borrowers, and those others on the hook in order to help themselves (see Banker's Greed). So many better candidates for the roll, and it's too damned early in the Obama Administration to replace the pinch-faced piece of shit, dammit.
OK. Don't Worry. I have a solid plan to fix Geithner's epic failure.
Since Geithner has just proven that he has no clue as how to actually address the rising crisis-- outside of rewarding his rich buddies, setting palettes of cash on fire, and renaming the Paulson TARP to something more pro-actively vague-- I recommend the following supplemental plan, The Monkeyfister Reality Adjustment Plan Supplemental, MRAPS, if you will (and you just might).
MRAPS's general outline is as follows:
1. Ditch the re-named Paulson TARP.
2. Hire Nuriel Roubini and Joseph Stiglitz immediately as Co-Secretaries of Treasury, or Primary Treasury Advisers, or whatever works Constitutionally.
3. Follow their advice to the letter.
Secondary roles for Roubini and Stiglitz will be to alternate shifts sitting right next to Geithner 24/7:
-- Every time he comes up with another idea similar to today's plan, they will broad-hand slap him across the face, and tell him to, "Shut The Fuck Up."
-- Every time he tries to help his rich, failed, golfing buddies, and keep them from being punished as they should be, they will punch him square in the cock, and tell him, "NO!"
I think that this will provide very immediate and positive results.
