I know many people are raving how there was a bailout to citigroup, and not one to the auto industry. But the “big 3” were awful as well. As many people put it, there’s a difference between the blue-collar corporation and the white-collar one. Both didn’t do well, but the white-collar always get the blank check.
“Government is the problem”... what a bunch of hypocrites! They like socialism, when it benefits THEM.

Does anyone truly see the logic in this? How in the hell did the fox get the key to the henhouse?
Surely there must be someone out there that has a modicum of sense and reason, that will tell the Wall Street Thugs to drop dead?
I am puzzled and amazed that the enigma of this global economic crisis, takes all the people it does to make sure that the Wall Street Thugs, get to keep their standard of living, while the rest of the world will now face, starvation, unemployment, depression and worse. Shouldn’t there be some penalty for the Wall Street Thugs, who have caused this mess and the government regulators who did not do their jobs of oversight of the banking sector of our economy?
I urge each and every person not connected with the banking sector of our economy to write, email and call their Senators and Representatives in Congress to ensure that the people who have caused this mess pay a hefty penalty for their malfeasance and crimes.
