Pardon me while I go on a rant.
I’m tired of all the banks. I’m tired of Wall Street. I’m tired of the bailouts. I’m tired of all the greedy goddamn suits.
It was recently reported in The New York Times, that Wall Street executives last year collected over $18 billion in bonuses. For what?
In most cases, there was no profit, just executives with their hands out to the American people – the taxpayer – to bail them out. They show their appreciation (actually, I think they could care less) by patting themselves on the back for a con well done.
I’m certain this greed was only encouraged by the greedy Bush Administration over the past eight years. Will Obama change things? According to a report yesterday, he’s upset about this irresponsibility too.
And don’t get Maureen Dowd started – I couldn’t agree more with her column last Wednesday.
I don’t know about you, but I earn every penny I make. I budget. I take the bus to work. I don’t buy things I would like to have, because I can’t afford them. I save until I can. I consider myself an American. I consider myself responsible.
Tell me: Do you consider these asshole executives taking billions of dollars from us American? Is this the new American way – to not be responsible?
I hope not. Let’s see if Obama can fix this sickening mess. Corporate Greed is an ugly sight.
