Bailout Joke

Last week the porn industry had the audacity to ask Congress for a $5 billion bailout! Think I'm kidding...check out this story. The entire "bailout" was a joke from the beginning, another twisted chess move in the game of corporate abuse and greed. Seriously, who gets to run a business in the ground and then get a $350 billion bonus from the taxpayers - with no accountability might I add. There has been no real accountability from the financial institutions who received this money and Congress has no idea how the money is being used, none. Oh and one more thing, President Bush is in the process of asking Congress for the remaining $350 billion. Yeah, since the financial institutions have done such a fine job with the first distribution, let's give them the remaining. Are you kidding me?! Dreadful, just dreadful.

Amen to that, sister. I truly think that Congress should enact some sort of clawback of all of the bonuses that these past executives got for building these financial weapons of mass destruction.

You're not kidding. Wow. This whole bailout mess is truly getting ridiculous.

Did you see those quotes? "It's time for Congress to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America and invest in it????" What?!

Where is our nation headed? Lord, Lord.
