Hair Of the Dog
Why is it that every politician's prescription for forking the world up is more of the same? The economy is not currently screwed up enough? No, politicians (in particular, but not exclusively Democrat) want to add credit card, auto and college loans to the bailout.
Every politician's prescription is step five "Punishment of the innocent". Make the good citizens bail out the bad ones and the politicians and the bankers once again.
Part of me says the bankers were just doing what the politicians demanded. But they didn't use their power to stand up for right against Washington, ACORN, and LaRaza. They took the profit from this while it was available and built their mansions in the Hamptons and Palm Beach. There is blood on their hands too. They are complicit.
It does make me wonder how bad things have to be before they will let us just heal. Or is there even such a point?
I didn't do it. I didn't ask for it. I don't even want it.
