What I cannot figure out is where are the patriots protesting in the streets. Obismal tells Chrysler to merge, they do. Tells Wagoner to step down, he does. Gives 900 million (Yes kiddies, just shy of a Billion, that's Billion with a B, to Hamas.)
I read a comment made some 220 years ago bandied about lately. Paraphrased as follows: Those who give up essential liberty (Give the government complete control of their lives.) for perceived safety (The government will take care of me.) deserve neither.
As for these absurd bailout figures, If you just gave every last person in the country their cut, each person would have received 131034.48 so far. Now that would have stimulated the economy. I could have put that to good use. Bought a house and a car etc. How about you? Instead, Big banking and big insurance and now big auto companies reap the benefits. Not you and I.
In an unstable economy, we, the huddled masses yearning to be free, are having trouble just buying gas and food. Layoffs every where you look. And Obismal's plan is not a trickle down plan. It just lined the pockets of the already super rich. This trickle only goes up.
In response to a public outcry of foul, the government rams through a law that allows the government to take 90% of any bonus's acquired by these bailout recipients. First, we are only talking about 170 million here. Come on now. That is an infinitesimally small amount compared to the 3.8 trillion dollars handed out so far. What you should be shocked and fearful of is that your government just made a law targeting a class of people to take money from them.
I'll grant you that I don't have much sympathy for those guys but this was wrong. Done just to appease a crybaby populace that is protesting the wrong thing. These idiots protest a measly 170 million while Obismal hands out 3.8 trillion. Dumb da dumb dumb.
Talk about a great decoy. Look at those bad executives, taking bonuses. Terrible. Talk about a slight of hand.
I am telling you what is terrible is that our government and the Obismal have given away 3.8 trillion dollars with out so much as a gasp from the crowd and no strings attached. What is wrong with you people. Are you out of your freekin' minds. Why aren't you standing in front of the White house with your placards proclaiming the insanity of these handouts.
The insanity of putting a former Chairman of the Federal Reserve in the treasury seat. Nearly the first thing he does is ask Congress for the power to nationalize whom he pleases with the excuse that national security and the entire economy is at stake. Give me a break and a half will ya!!!
Hillary Klintoon as the Secretary of State for Christ's sake. Almost her first task on the job was to give away nearly 1 Billion dollars to Hamas. A known terrorist organization/government/group.
Where are the protests in the street for this. Helloooooo, Hellooooo, anybody home?
I still see people writing about global warming or PETA. For Christ's sake, Rome is burning and we are transfixed by every other thing but what is important. We have a usurper in the White House. Illegally occupied. No proof he came from anywhere, let alone this country. He has spent over ONE MILLION DOLLARS so far, to fend off the lawsuits to pry his birth certificate out of his grasp. He is single handedly dismantling the economy and the Constitution while we piss and moan about the UAW or how General Motors is going to spend their bailout. Give me a break!
Why is no one keen on how AIG is spending theirs or the banks that let out these incredibly crazy loans at the behest of the Federal Government, by the way. Where is that money going. Some 3 Trillion so far. More to come.
Bottom line here is that there are games afoot that we are not privy to. Power that is being exercised that we cannot see. It just seems like lambs to the slaughter. When we enter hyper inflation and we will, when bread is $15.00 a loaf because Obismal ordered more paper money printed and the dollar devalues by 90% to the point of being worthless, will you be in the streets protesting then? Or will you be in a line with your hand out. Begging, please sir, can I have some porridge?
I know these words were written before, but just turn around and you'll see that Rome is not burning, it's already burnt.
