More debt?!?! My Money!!!!

September 23, 2008

Let’s see…a five-letter word for ‘happiness’…’Money’. Counting me money. Money sweeter than honey. Money money this, money money that. Profit will make me wallet fat! Ever wonder what the national debt is? Accordin’ to the debt clock, our debt is $9,733,598,354,817 and growin’ every minute. It’s about $9.7 trillion dollars….How do we have any kind of money? The government needs to run a tighter ship!!!! And look what’s going on with the economy and government:

Meanwhile, the Bush administration is pushing for a “clean” bill to be passed quickly and not be loaded up with provisions that would deter companies from participating.

“[T]he whole world is watching to see if we can act quickly to shore up our markets and prevent damage to our capital markets, businesses, our housing sector, and retirement accounts,” President Bush said.

Three cheers for feeling sorry for ourselves! Though it is true we need to pick up our economy, is this proposal really going to do the trick? A $700 billion financial rescue proposal….That is what they are plannin’ on tryin’ to pass. The government must love screwin’ up the economy…’Course, Bush and his crew have already done that so much, with the Iraq war and all, so perhaps it’s to be expected….

Honestly, though, has anyone looked at what is to be proposed in that proposal? Not only is it wastin’ two thousand dollars from every man, woman and child in the United States, no one can review it….

Basically, the government is handin’ over a blank check, handin’ it over and then closin’ their eyes and turnin’ their backs on what is going to happen with that money. And if someone finds out there’s a problem with it or notice that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is usin’ the money in any kind of way that he’s not supposed to or something, no one can do any thing about it….

How’s that legal? Rather, if they pass it, it’ll be legal, but can we already let our screwed up government squash our economy any longer? That’s me money walkin’ out the door!!!!! First, by the Iraq war, and now this, especially if it’s passed….

There’s gonna be some changes around here! Gonna and gotta, and the next president is goin’ to have a hard job…..
