Another $80 Billion Bailout? Ho-Hum, Yawn. Next?

By John W. Lillpop

Have America's so-called leaders lost their collective minds? Is Washington, D.C., now a Sanctuary City for the criminally insane?

After tightening the screws to make it as difficult as possible for average Americans to achieve debt relief through bankruptcy, the Bush administration, with the implied consent of the U.S. Congress, is throwing scores of billions of dollars of taxpayer money at Freddie, Fannie, Lehman Brothers, and now AIG.

Private, for profit entities, each and every one. Private, as in free market capitalism and all of the good things we love to brag about.

Why are Democrats, the alleged oversight party, not marching through the Halls of Congress to protest the systematic theft of the American Dream by crooked investors?

Why are the CEOs of Fannie and Freddie not bound in hand cuffs and shipped to Guantanamo Bay for some well-deserved water boarding?

Why are the head honchos of IndyMac, Countrywide, Lehman Brothers, and AIG not planted in ditches and stoned to death like wayward Muslim sisters guilty of being gang raped?

Just who in the hell in the U.S. government signed that $85 billion check to AIG? Add that vermin to the ditch and stone him as well!

How is it that all of the "reforms" implemented after Enron failed to prevent the once-in-a century rip off of American taxpayers?

Why do the late Key Lay and inmate Jeff Skilling look like Red Cross volunteers compared to the thugs making headlines these days?

Why is George W. Bush still allowed in the Oval Office?

Why are we the people still tolerating this abuse at the hands of corrupt bankers and politicians?

Is the time for another American "tea party" nigh?
