"Now Mr. Car Maker, we see that you are going through troubling times, and we are willing to help, but you have to see the hypocrisy of begging us for money and then coming to see us in those big corporate jets."

"Yes, indeed, Mr. Car Maker. We will help you...but you just HAVE to give up some of that awful 'executive compensation.' You're just making way too much money, and the American people won't stand for it."

"Why Mr. Car Maker, if we're going to help you keep your company afloat, you're going to have to share some of your corporate dividends with us. That's the least the tax payer can expect from you fat cats."

"After all, Mr. Car Maker, if you hadn't just won life's lotto and gotten chosen as the CEO of this big auto maker, why you'd be just like the average American: unambitious, status quo, yucking it up in front of the TV with your adult beverage, just getting old and fat."


Those same congress persons, without fanfare, justification or consultation, voted themselves a $93,000.00 each INCREASE in their petty cash fund to be used at their individual discretion.

I sure am glad they can spot hypocrisy when they see it.

The enormity of this nonsense is beyond comprehension.

PCC: Even minds as fine as yours and mine can't grasp it. How on earth can we expect the "average" American to understand it?

Tapline, you are exactly right. If we get Government-run healthcare, we BETTER stay well! We certainly won't be able to afford getting sick!

Howdy bro. Joe!
