Sept 14th, 2008 will go down as a monumental economic event in Unites States history, having massive global implications.

In the last few hours 2 of the remaining 4 investment banks (Bear Sterns would have been the 5th) have essentially failed.

Lehman Brothers founded in 1850, is one of the few currently important companies that is older than McCain, just filed for Bankruptcy, and Merrill Lynch, another American icon was forced to be acquired by Bank of America to avoid a certain global economic collapse.

And while I was watching special coverage on CNBC, since the other major networks were busy with coverage on the likeness of Sarah palin on Saturday Night Live, they showed a shot of the White House.

As you can see the peoples house, has a screen covering the entire view of the front entrance.

Here is video of this screen shot, watch about 30 seconds and you will see this.

I wonder what historic precedent would precipitate the authorities at the peoples house to erect a screen blocking the view of the who was entering and exiting at 9:30pm EST?

It appears to me the White House looks more like the Kremlin than the peoples house that George Washington help build.

What is the White House hiding? I mean, is Jeff Gannon visiting? Or is it the PM of China?

What do you all think of this radical act of secrecy by the Bush/McCain administration, which is eerilly reminsceint of how the Kremlin did buisness.

On a night when America needs leadership and courage, we have them cowering behind a fabric screen in OUR HOUSE.

What a disgrace!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
