Paging Naomi Klein

In response to the recent convulsions in the financial markets, our leaders in Washington are prepared to hand $700 billion to the Secretary of the Treasury. Just how blank is that check? Here's how blank:

Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.
No. Hell no.

Go here to contact your member of Congress and here to contact your Senators.

Cf. The Shock Doctrine (the video version).
