All this bullshit bailout talk has gotten me thinking about how f*cking-halfass backwards this whole situation is, as well as our country. The government gave AIG Billions of taxpayer dollars to do what with…give BONUSES to CEO’s???? WTF?
A bonus(in my definition) is meant to reward someone for hard work or a job well done. Common sense tells us that AIG’s business practice has been less than perfect. Who at AIG deserves a fucking bonus?(Rewarded for running a company into the ground????) I’m pissed that our government even gave them money. Fuck ’em!!!, they screwed up all on their own…but, the government steps in and hands them an unimaginable amount of money…
Can you even visualize that amount of money? I can’t(our mainstream media has numbed us to the real value of money, by constantly throwing huge figures in our face.)
If AIG posted record losses totalling in the Billions, why jump to give them un-earned money. Obviously they’re paying themselves too much compared with what they’re bringing in as a business. This is the catalyst of something bigger to come!
There’s no hope for improving our country unless WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE stand up and voice our opinions and displeasure in the way our tax payer’s money is being used and also the way our country is being governed.
The people running our government are getting away with all this shit because most American’s are so damn busy with work, bills, raising families and voting for American Idol, that they can’t see through the lies & wool that’s been pulled over their eyes.
In my honest opinion, a large percentage of Americans are willfully ignorant, they accept the way things are and rarely ever question authority, we call them Sheeple….and the few Americans who actually have common sense and voice their opinions are usually labeled as being un-American/patriotic. But, as Bill Maher said “I do think the patriotic thing to do is to critique my country. How else do you make a country better but by pointing out it’s flaws?”
About my thought process:
I do not side with any one political party or belief system, nor do I use labels to associate myself with any one group or ideology. I am always learning new things and my view point is constantly being updated and refined, so therefore I think it’s unintelligent to put my foot down and say that any one thing is totally/ultimately TRUE.
Life is uncertain, unexplained, and less than perfect!
