Man! Has it really been a month and a half? I guess I ran outta stuff to talk about after the Jon & Kate +8

spiel. But here’s a good one:

Congress voted out the Big Three last night.

Nothing.

Nada.

Zilch.

I’m pretty mad. I mean, they hand $150 billion to AIG, when they present no plan, no course of action.

But then when the Big Three, consisting of GM, Chrysler and Ford, ask for a (measly in comparison) $25 billion, and

come in with a game plan, and things they would change with their business to help their course of action, and yet

even after negotiating down to $17 billion, they’re turned down. Of course, with Congress aware that they would

be bankrupt within 3 weeks. And when AIG was handed their 150, they blew through the first $85 billion with no

profitable gain towards their company or their clients, and Congress handed them more money, no questions asked.

 

So what’s up with that guys?

AIG’s lobbyists get to you before Chrysler?

GM not pay you enough?

Don’t really like Ford’s 2009 models?

 

Yeah. That’s what I thought.
