You know The govenment has truly lost sight of who they are here to serve. They have given hundreds of billions $$$ to companies that were deemed to
big to fail. It started with bush and continued with Obama. (one of the few things negitive you will ever hear me say about Obama) They are both
Morons for doing this. Who did this help. I know I did not see anything from it. I'm still broke, living paycheck to paycheck. While these fat cat
CEO's and excutives are recieving multimillion dollar bonuses. (I know this is way late but I got get this off my chest) Where is our help. Where is
the help for the avarge american. The American that keeps your precious bubble of the week afloat. The american that drives the economy. And what
pisses me off even more is that they are talking about the bail outs worked. No they didn;t big busniess just hit the platau of how many people they
needed to fire to remain profitable. All these bailout did was:
1) Increase our national debt.
2) Make CEO's and Excutives even richer
3) Show the future CEO's and excutives that you can run your company to the ground and the people will bail you out.
4) Reward incompitance
I say we should have let the companies fail. They would have had to sell there assets at firesale prices and the companies that were doing good would
have taken them over. We could have used that money to do several things:
1) divide it between the states to build infastructre, fund new tech, education
2 Would have the money for Obama's health care bill
3 Just not printed the money which would not have caused the dollar to fall so rapidily in the world market.
Now lets get back to the people. Where is our bailout. We drive the economy do we not. We are the ones that use credit cards. Now I will say (and I
know this sounds mean and uncaring) that I do not feel sorry for the people that have lost their homes if they got a home that they could not afford.
If you make a combined income of >40k per year then you can not afford to live in a house that cost <500k. I just dont feel sorry for you. Your
monthly income is 2500 and your mortgage was 1800. WHAT THE *&^% WERE YOU THINKING!!!!!!!!! I dont feel sorry for those that decided to run hundreds
of thousends in credit card debt. WHAT THE HELL DID YOU BUY.?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! But I still think you did no worse then the fat cats on wall street and
you deserve a bail out just like them. Who do I feel sorry for? Who do I think deserves the most help? The people that could afford that <$500k house
but lost there job then their house. The people that lived within their means. and then the catagory that I fall into. I am currently $96,000 in debt.
Guess how much of that is C/C debt. $850. (no I did not leave off a zero) I have under 1k of C/C debt, but because of that there is really no help for
me, even though I'm almost $100k in debt. You see roughly 75% of my debt is student loans. I fell into that trap. I fell for the lie hook line and
sinker. We all have heard it. If you go to collage and get your degree you'll earn more money. A collage grad earns X amount more then a highschool
grad. Well Im here to say BULL. What they dont tell you is that if that highschool grad starts working straight out of school in an entry level
position, by the time you graduate from school they will be making approx the same as you, maybe more. And even if you do happen to make more approx
$3-$6per hour is going to end up going to you student loan payments and thats for 20-30 yrs. If you start working for lets say the government. 20yrs
then retire, on most student loans you will have to continue paying for another 10yrs after retirement. Is there any outside help for people with
student loans, NOPE!!!! You have to deal with the people that they say. the term that they set. You cant even get rid of it by claiming bankruptcy.
The rules governing these loans are screwed. They can take you to court with out telling you and garnish your paycheck with out any consideration of
what other bills you have to pay. No debt counslor will touch you. And if you die and your estate can not take care of the debt its passed to your
next of kin. What did we do to deserve this. oh I forgot we went to school to better our lives. Hey congress, Mr Obama well The F*&K is our bailout.
We didnt strecth our selves to thin, we didnt misbudget our money. My sister in law has no bills other then student loan, cell phone and insurence.
she pays almost $1000 in bills. $850 a month is student loans. How is she supposed to live with that. I have to pay $500 a month. Thats more then my
car payment and insurence payment combined. I was just able to get it lowered to $500 a month. Used to be $630.
We did nothing then do as we
were asked. From birth we are told get an education move out the Ghetto. Well guess what I was out the Ghetto then this loan payment hit and I had to
move back to the ghetto. Where is our help. Why do these millionairs and billionairs deserve your help but us "little people" get nothing. I WANT MY
F&^#ING BAILOUT. Hell I think that me and most of the american people deserve it more then AIG, Chrystler, GM,
Sorry just to get that off my chest.
