I Don't Give A Bleep About - Bailouts For Large Companies

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_jx-KCnvjTuI/SOduXe1wr8I/AAAAAAAAOCw/DXJZrI4iSu0/s400/debt_bail_out.gif

Okay, you already know where I am going with this. I could care less about these whiny folks complaining about their companies losing money. Where the hell is my bail out? Hail, I need money too? I am in College and it seems like my College might even be closing, due to funds drying up. (I can't understand that mess either).

I am more then a little pissed off about the bailout last year of AIG, for the billion dollar bail out they received (I guess all that partying they did in Vegas and other places were expensive huh?)..

Then American Express Company (shortly afterward) was approved to become a bank holding company. This helped them to gain access to nearly a portion of the$700 billion dollars in federal funds,being pumped in financial firms.

So, why are we, the taxpayers, having to subsidize companies who don't know how to handle their finances? So I am more then thrilled to hear that our new PREZ OBAMA, has vowed to clamp down on the, "lavish lifestyle" of these bigwigs. Shit, I wish my company would give me more then $500,000 dollars a year in bonuses.

Hell, if I get a .25cents raise, I think I would be lucky. I am just glad I have a "piece" of job to go too. I mean these dudes/Dudettes retire with these enormous severance packages.

Meanwhile, folks in the "real working sector," have to fight unemployment just to get a check from the company that laid us off.

According to the Washington Post, "The Bush administration overpaid tens of billions of dollars for stocks and other assets in its massive bailout last year of Wall Street banks and financial institutions, a new study by a government watchdog says".

The Congressional Oversight Panel, in a report released Friday, said last year's overpayment amounted to a taxpayer-financed $78 billion subsidy of the firms.

IDON'TGIVEABLEEP wants HER MONEY BACK!! YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT! DAMNIT! I want what GEORGE JEFFERSON GOT, "A PIECE OF THE PIE."

THAT BACK THIS "ROTTEN CHEESE" you gave me MR. GOVERNMENT!!
