  The nerve of some people!
I was watching the news yesterday...I still have a lot of time on my hands...and I saw the "big three" in front of congress begging for money.

It wouldn't be so bad if they went up there with their hands out at least looking a little contrite, but these people show up, all flying in their own corporate jets looking for money! One of the talking heads said that GM had 7 of these jets! Seven! And they're looking for a handout?

The UAW, that's United Auto Workers for those that don't know, said they're not giving up anything. What a bunch of crap. This union is one of the biggest problems with the "big three". How the hell can a company compete when they have to pay their employees somewhere in the neighborhood of $75 an hour? These union members have a better retirement plan than the military! Well, honestly, most companies have a better retirement plan than the military...

And these congresspeople ain't any better! They give money to companies like AIG and what do they do with it? They have expensive get aways and leave the taxpayer footing the bill! The automakers are trying to get us to pay the fuel bill for those corporate jets and us little folk are stuck holding the bill.

I say BULLSHIT!!! Take care of yourselves!

You know, I pay my mortgage every month. I drive a car that's been paid for for years. I'm currently unemployed, but I'm not looking for a handout! I'm looking for a way to make it right and I'm sure I'll find it...eventually!

I think I'm gonna use some of my free time and send an email to my congressmen asking for my bailout! I don't need $25 billion, I could get by with just a little piece of that pie! Maybe, a mil, or even half that! $500,000 would work just fine...


Anyway, I feel better now.

Have a nice day!

hear hear! i'd be thrilled if someone handed me a bunch of cash, but there's always a price to pay. the folks that made the poor lending decisions and the ones who lived beyond their means need to be held responsible for themselves. period. i've worked four jobs at once to pay the rent and feed my kids; i've no sympathy for the "poor" bastards. financial education and accountability should be taught early on, and consequences need be maintained. here's a thought about the Big 3 and UAW... hell no. the UAW won't give up anything... except their livelihoods. guess they'll figure that out when they come to work to find the doors padlocked.

fun stuff... :)
