Economic Bailout

26 Sep

So…700Billion dollars. Let’s invest it on people making exorbitant amounts of money who have already showed that they can lose the money once. Never mind that a small percentage of this money could; alleviate poverty, 25,000 children dying of malnutrition everyday, bring clean drinking water to 2 billion people, eliminate needless deaths that could be solved with simple vaccinations or pill and bring education to children across the world.

Probably just venting and talking about something I don’t understand but…

…here are some other peoples thoughts:

    No one in Washington is listening…

    One of my oldest friends (over 25 years) is a staunch capitalist and neo-conservative. While he is not a religious fundamentalist (actually he is an atheist), he is certainly an economic fundamentalist. I, on the other hand, definitely lean to the left of center, and my friend places me in the “bleeding heart liberal” camp. Needless to say he and I have disagreed about almost every political and economic issue and event that has occurred in the course of human events. However, on the topic of the economic bailout, he and I are in complete agreement.

    JUST SAY NO!!!

    He and I are not the exception. As I have been spending time talking with my liberal constituents, I am finding little or no support for this bailout and the right wingers are already in open revolt over this issue. The elected officials of this country should be served notice that unless they are willing to listen to the people they risk eminent ouster from their political positions.

    We need to start thinking again and quit behaving like a bunch of amoeba in a Petri dish. The American people are strong enough to withstand the worst of economic and political times. It is time that Washington quits trying to appease their cronies and corporate benefactors and do the job they were elected to perform.

    Please call, write or email your representatives immediately. Do not hesitate, because we as a nation and a people are out of time. We need to stop the political and economic incompetency that has brought us to the edge of the abyss. Another 700 billion in the hands of incompetent business and banking is an outrage. Asking the American people to give them this money is criminal.

    I think this is the biggest rip off in the history of the USA
    They say if we don’t bail them (who every that is) out then we will hit rock bottm. Hell, I been at rock bottom. And you know what, when your at rock bottom you have something to stand on. And when you have something to stand on then you can stand up and make something for yourself.
    FUCK A HAND OUT
    FUCK A BAIL OUT
    How about a free market? Is a free market a new idea? I just don’t get it.
    Mad as hell about government and it giving away my hard earned money.
