The Senate Bailout Plan

I believe that it was Mark Steyn that first called the Senate plan the 'Armageddon Avoidance Act.'
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.

"Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed."

Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, "It is done!" Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.
(Revelation 16:12-21, NIV)
Our Senators are so talented that they could multitask efficiently while saving the country's economy from total collapse along with much of the rest of the world. They also reached down and touched the little people by including:

-- Wooden arrows designed for use by children
-- Motorsports racing track facilities
-- Rum producers in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands
-- Investors in the District of Columbia or on Indian reservations.
-- Building and renovating restaurants,
-- Book donations to public schools, and
-- Recipients of settlement payments from Exxon Valdez litigation 1
