This is getting ridiculous. I ranted about the bailouts before, I’ll do it again. SAY NO TO THE BAILOUTS! Now, Pelosi and Co. want to bailout the auto industry. ARE THEY FREAKIN’ NUTS!?! The most sensible comment on this actually came out of the White House:
While companies like Toyota and Honda were spending money on R&D for efficient, hybrid cars, Detroit was spending money on Hummers and gas guzzling trucks.
Now they want help because they made some stupid choices over the years. And to top it off, the freakin Dems are pushing for this bailout. This, on top of the news that the Wallstreet companies that received bailout money continue to spend on huge bonuses. In fact, news came out that AIG, which recently asked for more bailout money, spent $343,000 for a two day “sales meeting” at luxury resort in Arizona:
The company had already been under criticism for spending $440,000 for a weeklong retreat in California for top-performing insurance agents, just days after the U.S. government stepped in to save the company with a $85 billion taxpayer-funded loan.
Write to your representive in Congress and tell them NO MORE TAXPAYER FUNDED BAILOUTS!
Clinton donors are at it again, pushing veiled threats against anyone who doesn’t implicitly back Clinton. This is similar to the threats made in trying to get the Florida delegates to count. Enough is enough. Like Pelosi said, superdelegates should “back whoever emerges from the nomination contests with the most pledged delegates”. Obama clearly is winning the popular vote. If I’m a superdelegate, and a majority of my constituents voted for Obama, and I end up throwing my hat to Clinton, I’d be worried about looking like a traitor to my support/base. Where will the Clinton donors be then?
