The $5,000 Protest Hank Paulson Fellowship

UPDATE: I got 5 up votes so I am working on getting the project going. Technically Kickstarter may be a bad choice. I am planning to take an ad out in the U of C student newspaper at personal expense Chicago Maroon for one week advertising something like: Earn 0.2 Bitcoins per hour protesting the Federal Bailout plans of 2007-2009.

I propose a crowdfunding project: a $5000 cash fellowship for a University of Chicago student. The student must agree to 14 hours per week of protest, with appropriate signage in or around the Paulson Institute. The student must also maintain a weekly blog of commentary. The fellowship is only open to University of Chicago students so that no trespassing laws are violated. If I get 5 up votes I will set up a Kickstarter page and update.

The proximate cause of TARP is Treasury Secretary/Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson . He is widely considered the chief architect of the bailout . George Bush said his goal in passing TARP was to save the free market by abandoning free market principles.


During the election Ron Paul spoke out on the coming bankruptcy. It took two votes to pass TARP, and it only passed because Hank Paulson got on his knees and begged Nancy Pelosi to pass TARP . Ron Paul voted against it twice.


After his time in government Hank Paulson walked free, was lauded and currently enjoys a senior fellowship at the University of Chicago and founded the Paulson Institute .


Despite this massive attack on the heart of American principles, Hank Paulson is treated with respect at the University of Chicago .

Surprise! Hank's Magic $700 B Show Cost You $7 Trillion!

Hank, a no-count, 2 bit gambler has yet to break even. Hank "Bazooka" Paulson prepares to draw blood from taxpaying donors ~ Magic show tickets = $7,000 each. [10 extractions will soon be required ~ $7 Trillion to inject into the butts that disappeared the whole damn world economy.]

$700 Billion Bank Bailout was Secretly $7 Trillion Published November 30, 2011. Washington.

In 2008, President Bush, Secretary Paulson and Chairman Bernanke crafted a bank bailout program they termed TARP or the Toxic Asset Relief Program... [ A tarp cover up. ] It was created in the middle of the night, over a weekend, because if they didn’t act by Monday they said, there wouldn’t be an America anymore. With confusion and fear in his eyes, President Bush handed the reins of power to the former CEO of Goldman Sachs. And instead of limiting himself to the $700 billion Congress grudgingly approved, Hank Paulson printed $7 trillion dollars, funneled it through the Federal Reserve and handed it over to the world’s biggest banks with no strings attached and in total secrecy.

The vetting of the recipient of this scholarship will be crucial to ensure that you don't get a troll.



What would the Founders do?

Does Paulson Have Personal Responsibility for TARP?

Why does no one hold Hank Paulson personally responsible for TARP?

If I remember right

He had it set up if he does this TARP deal, he has no legal accountability.
