Big Three and the US Senate

Perhaps a more appropriate title should be:  “Two of the Big Three getting  Minuscule Amount of Relief. 

I’m still pretty torn about bailing out the Big Three.  I do think their CEOs should be fired.  So should much of their top managers for that matter.  They’ve done a crap job.  They do not deserve the outrageous amount of pay they get nor their bonuses.  However, I do not think putting 3 million more people into the unemployment line sounds like a good idea. 

I also find the political posturing that is taking place right now to be a lot more than a little sickening!  Seriously.  Other than DeMint (SC-R), which one of the 5 Republicans making waves about the $14 billion auto bail out said one word about the $700 billion Wall Street bailout?!  Did any of them cry out when AIG continued to party on the tax payers dollars…uhhhh…NO!  No they did not.  Bastards.  And does anyone else find it curious the Alabama senators are so adamant about calling off the bailout???  Isn’t it Alabama that has a HUGE Toyota plant?  Just asking!

I also wonder why no one questions blue collar job loss, but a junk bond salesman loses his job and man oh man it’s a big deal. 

Just one of my many angry rants of today.
