I saw a story on the national news last night that $13.5 million was spent to restore the orginal flag of the U.S. I am thinking What ? Wow! We could have used that on so many other more important, more emergency type situations right now. This is totally ridiculous along with numerous other non right-here right-now situations that people need.
Parks, libraries, new roads, the Big 3 flying in their multimillion dollar jets to where ever their hearts content. This is so outragous! Workers at GM making $71.00 an hour! What? Why? Plus benefits!? If they can't save enough of their hourly wages for benefits that is crazy, no wonder they are all in hot water! Who makes that kind of dough for screwing in screws all day or setting windshields?
If the Big 3 can't figure out their problem they don't deserve any bailout!
And neither do all of these other people with their hands out! If they couldn't pay for it then what makes the govenment think they can pay for it later? With so many people losing their jobs, how are they going to be able?
We are self employed and saying our prayers right now that we make it through these rough times as we have been there before. Other people have too, but for some reason they forget that "history repeats itself " and return to their old ways, such as driving gas guzzling trucks and SUVs. Where we have always conserved, others just can't seem to understand that those "hard times and rainy days" will be back!
