    • Refreshing Honesty About Bank Loans
      I actually appreciate this, from the HSBC AM Global Head of Responsible Investing, Stuart Kirk: “At a big bank like ours, what do people think the average loan length is?” he asked. “It is six years. What happens to the planet in year seven is actually irrelevant to our loan book. For coal, what happens in year seven is actually irrelevant.” That’s honesty. […]

Welcome New Readers!

We’ve been checking our site statistics an have noticed a huge spike in the number of people who have caught onto PUMA Power.  We are Democrats and our mission and purpose is to wrest the Democratic party back from the young, ideological thugs who have temporarily taken up space with teh DNC.

Our message to you is simple:  You own your own vote.  You can cast it for whomever you like.  As a Democrat, you are under no obligation to support the ticket if you do not think it was won fairly.  As a Democratic primary voter, you went to the polls in your state and cast your vote in good faith that your intentions would be recognized and honored.  We now know this was not the case.  Your state spent millions of taxpayer dollars to run the primary for the Democratic party but the party felt no obligation to follow its own processes.  Your state extended the courtesy to the party but if you feel that the party did not act in good faith, you may want to contact your State Attorney General to lodge a complaint.  The way the primaries and convention were conducted stronlgy suggests a pre-determined outcome and it that is true, the primaries were nothing but a sham and a fraud perpetrated on voters by the members of the DNC.

Going forward, we will be forming a New Democratic Party for those of us who consider ourselves true Democrats.  We will be supporting and endorsing downtciket Democrats to ensure divided government in the wake of the McCain/Palin victory in November.  Please see PUMAPac for details.

And if you are so inclined, help us pay off Hillary Clinton’s campaign debt.  As little as $10 combined with all of the other contributions will go a long way to settling the obligations to small vendors.  The Obama fundraisers were supposed to help us do it but they reneged on their promises to do so.

Thanks for checking in.  We know it can’t have been easy for you during the convention last week.  We saw a brilliant, energetic, dedicated public servant get a pretty raw deal from her party.  But we are not wallowing in our beer.  We are motivated to take our party back.   So, find a buddy, hold hands, stick together and, united, we will make the powers that be the powers that *were*. You are not alone.

Roll Call!  Tell us where you’re from.
