C’mon John. You really can’t campaign and do other things? Essentially, you are saying that for the last two years while you have been campaigning, you have been doing pretty much nothing to fulfill your role as Senator? That is just silly. Again, every time i try to give you the benefit of doubt, you do something stupid like this. If you can’t walk and chew gum, I am pretty sure you are disqualified to be President. (Although, I have heard that Cheney chewed the gum while Bush walked during that test).
So that must mean I think more of Obama, yes? Not really. He is going to sign off on this absolutely ridiculous, foul, wrong, illegal bailout. I don’t know what is so hard to understand here. Either way, the average American has been getting pummeled and will continue to get pummeled. This is all about protecting the upper crust of our society. This loan does nothing more than cover the interest payment (or, in this case, vig). The core problems still exist and will not go away in short order.
Sure, this just might lessen the pain a little short term but it will also extend it indefinitely. The average college student will already leave college with a debt load of around 50 to 100k (for an in state school). They will also have probably followed the spending habits of their parents and have a nice chunk of credit card debt. How in the world, as a new taxpayer, are they going to be able to shoulder this burden?
This is our government at its most cynical and distasteful. There is no voice of reason nor will anyone ride in at the last moment and save the day. The sheer arrogance of it all is mind boggling. I suppose, in the end, it is the fault of the average US citizen for turning a blind eye to all of this for the last 20 to 30 years. While we were consoling ourselves with baubles, the horses left the barn…and then it was burned to the ground.
The religious seem to see evil as some sort of spirit or other worldly being. I would suggest that the truly evil are those that would sacrifice the well being of others for their own gain. And you know what? They don’t care. They have all convinced themselves that the average citizen (lemming) is so out of touch and clueless, that they are the chosen ones to deliver us to the promise land. I don’t think their is a more delusional group than politicians (other than TV evangelists).
So, I am sure we will hear later today that the biggest bailout in the history of the planet has been passed. The people that robbed the bank and spent all the money are now being given more money to open a new bank. What a beautiful country this is! And by the way, you small (and medium) business owners…you don’t get a dime of this. Times tough for you? Too bad, get over it.
U-S-A!!! U-S-A!!! U-S-A!!!
(We see you hiding Kennedy, Graham, Bayh, Brownback, Casey and all of the rest of you. Don’t want to get this stink on you, do you?)
