White Noise Insanity

Politicians…don’t piss down our backs and then tell us it’s raining!

Have you met the guy who is handling the $700,000,000,000 bailout money?

Posted by kayinmaine on October 9, 2008


It’s not Henry Paulson, you know, the bald guy who can’t look ya in the eye when he’s doing a press conference and the guy who used to head Goldman Sachs. Nope, it’s his Mini-Me, Neel Kashkari, who worked with Paulson at Goldman Sachs and now works with him at the Treasury! Basically, the Evil Twins of Goldman Sachs is going to be handling America’s money. Nice huh?

Here’s a little background of who Neel is:

From Time.com:

• Kashkari grew up in Stow, Ohio, an Akron suburb. As a high school student, he was a fan of heavy metal bands like AC/DC, whose lyrics dot his high school yearbook. He is 35 years old.

• He comes from a family of scientists. Father Chaman has a doctorate in engineering, and won a Presidential award for his work in getting water to African villages. Kashkari’s mother, Sheila, is a retired pathologist, and his sister Meera, specializes in infectious diseases.

• Accordingly, Kashkari also studied science, getting his masters in engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

• He and his wife Minal live in Silver Spring, Maryland, with their dog Winslow.

Feeling like Sarah Palin’s son is the one in charge of $700,000,000,000? He listens to AC/DC? Hysterical.

And here’s his connection to George Bush/Dick Cheney because you just knew there would be a connection!…

From Energy Risk USA (emphasis mine):

Neel Kashkari is Senior Advisor to U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson, Jr. He provides counsel to the Secretary on key policy matters and was one of the architects of President Bush’s “Twenty in Ten” energy security plan.

Prior to joining the Treasury Department, Mr. Kashkari was a Vice President at Goldman, Sachs & Co. in San Francisco, where he led Goldman’s IT Security Investment Banking practice, advising public and private companies on mergers and acquisitions and financial transactions. Prior to his career in finance, Mr. Kashkari was a R&D Principal Investigator at TRW in Redondo Beach, California where he developed technology for NASA space science missions such as the James Webb Space Telescope.

Originally from Stow, Ohio, Mr. Kashkari graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a BachelorA’s and Master’s degree in Engineering. He also received an M.B.A. in Finance from the Wharton School.

Just thought you ought to know this information. 😉

    Good information….and so it goes on…just give the job to yet another memeber of the Bush/Cheney crowd….do we need CHANGE or do we need CHANGE!!!!
    If the American people can’t see how badly we need Sen Obama to change all this crap then I don’t know what they are thinking….because obviously their brain cells are disappearing fast!!!

    We need real change, Carol! Voting for a Bush-wannabe, George McCain, will not cut the mustard! We want Obama/Biden in the White House to bring sanity back to our country! 🙂

    John McCain made a remark on the debate…albeit a mistake I’m sure..he said “my fellow prisoners”
    I’ve been thinking about that and you know he is right!
    At this moment in time we are FELLOW PRISONERS due to the mess
    McCain and the Republican party have got us into…..we are locked in a cage of their making….irresponsibility and greed!!!
    Yes, McCain was right, the only difference being he is the JAILER keeping us all down!!!

    I see you’re yelling too this morning, Carol. LOL It’s contagious!

    Oh yes, it wasn’t a Freudian Slip when Johnny said ‘my fellow prisoners’, because really, the American Taliban (the GOP) has always thought of Americans as their slaves/prisoners/enemy combatants/POWs. See? They hate all Americans including their own members, except, they like the ones who are white and uber loyal.

    Hitler would be proud of today’s American republic Party.
