United States of America
These are troublous times, even here in flyover country. I want to express my deep appreciation for your willingness to devote your time and treasure to help America out. We are in the midst of a global economic crisis of earth-shaking significance, that remains widely misunderstood and unappreciated by most Americans. As we still remain without challenge the economic leaders of the world, and the best hope of any citizen of any country for improvement of his own circumstance within his own lifetime, either by trade or immigration, you are choosing a difficult path. With a return to sound economic principles, we will have no other issues.
Our current continuing economic crisis, which we now call the Great Recession, actually dwarfs the Great Depression in it’s widespread effect. Remedial action has been undertaken by both George Bush and his administration, and by Barack Obama and his administration. Their understanding has been as childlike and simplistic as their actions have been amateurish and ineffective. You both represent the clearest understanding of basic economic issues, and I hope to vote for both of you. I’ve just finished ‘House of Debt,’ with a prescient interview with Elizabeth in 2008 when you were the sole voice of reason. I greatly enjoyed the Apprentice shows when Donald was able to successfully direct Geraldo and his herd of weasels in accomplishing wildly successful and beneficial outcomes for the community. Neither of you need to offer any apologies. America needs your effort.
My own lot, since my retirement from active work life, has been to take on a role as judicial activist. I’m currently representing USAG and managing the prosecution of a minor mortgage servicer at 5USCA 14-51224, only because I have standing in the matter and the position of USAG remains vacant today. I would be the first to welcome eventual intervention by the DOJ, but expect to remain overall case manager. I will be making some small recoveries of diverted treasure and returning it to America, but more importantly I will be helping to delineate more clearly the boundary between the necessary and valuable service of the FIRE component of the economy, and the unnecessary and repugnant, and illegal, predatory behavior that remains much too widespread.
I do not ordinarily donate money to politicians, as they are such a weaselly group. I know neither of you are in need. Please accept the enclosed dollar as an expression of my esteem. You’ll be in Austin one day, I’ll buy lunch if you have some free time. Please pencil me in. Catfish Parlor! Meat with No Feet!
