I believe I am as deserving of a bailout as anayone. What do I have to do? Be AIG or build motor cars or something?
The terms of the bailout are sort of limited to “qualifying U.S. banks, savings associations, and certain bank and savings and loan holding companies, engaged only in financial activities.” But since the $700B bailout package is now down to $60, Karl Rove's former boy Jeb Mason gets to pick and choose which companies he'll approve or whack. They include automakers, banks, S&Ls, cheesemakers, Credit Card companies and they all get in line and beg at the hand that may or may not feed them.
And if the government runs out of money? No worries. Jeb's got a printing press and they can just print more.
I need an official lobbyist to go get me a piece of that pie. I work hard, I know my business, and I want to keep my home. So there.
