The Clintons asked GM to build a green car SIXTEEN FRIGGIN YEARS AGO.  Instead, GM chose to build SUV’s that not only guzzle gas, but also tip over! I don’t think they should be privy to one penny of my tax money.  F ‘EM!  They’ve had 16 years to do the right thing for America and they’ve chosen not to.

Let’s take that bailout money and invest in a greencar company or at least an American smartcar.  Set one up in Detroit overseen by U Michigan engineers.  They know a little something about cars.

The whole point of capitalism, is that it rewards those with foresight and good ideas, and punishes short-sighted dimwits.  If we continue to bailout the dimwitted, the cream will never have a chance to rise.

A rose is a rose is a rose.

A “rescue” is a bailout + pork.

And They All Look Just The Same

When you have a big house made out of ticky-tacky sitting in the middle of freakin nowhere in an exurb where it takes a ton of gas to get to work, there’s nothing for your kids to do without being driven somewhere, and you can’t even find a decent cup of coffee – and that crap house sells for half-a-million dollars, something is very wrong.  Because that house has no actual worth.  No-one wants to live there.  So throwing $1,000,000,000,000 at the problem will keep that house selling at that half-mil price point TEMPORARILY.  Eventually, something that is worthless will sell for close to nothing in any capitalist society.  These exurb developments are the slums of tomorrow.

The bailout is designed to give some buffer time for the very wealthy to liquidate their worthless assets in an artificially sustained market.  That is its only purpose.  The market will probably fail soon with or without the 1-trillion bailout.   It’s quite sad to see the Dems going along with spending your money this way.  It seems that we need a clean sweep of Congress.

Oh Where Oh Where Did The Free Market Go Oh Where Oh Where Can It Be

Hi – could y’all please call your president and congressmen and tell ’em to stop throwing our money down a black hole?  Thanx!

(I just heard George Bush say that all fraudulent short sellers will be caught and “persecuted”.)

Hey here’s a crazy idea: why don’t we take those trillions of tax dollars and invest them in tech, green energy, and education.  And actually get a return on our investment.
