Conspiracy Thursday - Obama: Broken Promises

Nothing like a little conspiracy theory to break up the monotony. Check out this documentary. It's from the same people that pounded Bush while he was in office.

AIG Bonuses... Why are you Surprised?

Everywhere you look, there is OUTRAGE about the bonuses that AIG executives will receive. OUTRAGE, I Tell You. IT IS OUTRAGEOUS!

For all of you that think this is outrageous, please do sit down and shut up.

What is outrageous is that the company got bailed out in the first place. It is outrageous to live in a country where the free market is dead. It is outrageous to have a leadership willing to sell its constituency down the river.

The ENTIRE PURPOSE of these bailouts is to make sure that the rich people that own these corporations, their bonds, their stocks, do not lose THEIR money. Any talk of helping the american tax payer is just a thinly veiled lie.

We are drowing in debt. How can the solution be to create more debt?

The only way this thing stops is if people are forced to SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES of their actions. As long as we live under a government that shields people from personal responsibility, we won't have any responsible people.

Of course these executives are going to take their money and run. Outrageous? IT'S OBVIOUS. These parasites have been feeding off the system forever. It's the only way they know how to live.

Do you really think that someone who has been irresponsible their entire life will suddenly become responsible when it's YOUR money?

The reason free markets work is because when the hosts die, the parasites are flushed out as well. But in this case, we are not letting the diseased hosts die. We are keeping them on life support. And then we act surprised when the parasites keep feeding.

Obama - Broke

Instead of posting about yet another failed bank, I thought I would take a more creative approach to convey my opinion of the current administration's efforts to resolve the financial crisis.

I came up with this, my version of Shepard Fairey's iconic Obama image. I affectionately entitle it, "Broke."

More Banks

If you check the Bank Closure Map, you will see that two more banks closed this weekend. I probably should have listed Citi and Bank of America as well... oh well. I'm sure we'll have plenty of time to get to them.
