We need a bailout

I was going to remove the comment suggesting that "We need a bailout." It seems like its non-responsive. That said, I thought better of it. I feel like I have heard something similar to that a alot: Why spend all that money on car companies, banks, or whatever; How about spending it on me.

Well, what does that mean? I presume people want a check. Or, do they want Uncle Sam to pay their credit card debt and mortgage? What do you want? I don't have credit card debt, and I have a very affordable mortgage. I would be OK with the government paying it off, except I know that I will need to still pay the same amount in taxes or inflation (another form of a Tax)... So why bother.

I think that commenter was an advertiser who wanted to entice you to view his website.

I'd like Uncle Sam to pay for my vacation. :)

I actually feel more passionately about the auto bailout than I realized -- last night I was over at Mom's and we were watching the news. After a segment on the Big Three I went off on how I am fed up with some of the worst business men in the world expecting us to save them. But I do think there is one place the government needs to step in with this industry -- and it's an intercession with the labor union. Someone needs to tell the Labor Union that requiring salaries that are 6xs higher than the average salary is inappropriate.
