I want my money!

Filed under: rants — unwriter1 @ 9:26 am

What kind of a government is it that gives money to banks that can’t handle money? What kind of an idiot gives billions of dollars to a company that is failing? They don’t use that money to bail out their company, they give it out in bonus’s to their CEO’s. Does it make sense to give money to a bank that can’t handle money? No! We don’t have jobs. The poor keep getting poorer, so what does the government do? It gives billions of worthless dollars (Keep making it, they have the paper. Back it up with gold? Unheard of).  What do these idiots spend the money on? Do they create jobs? Do they give to the poor? No, they give it out in bonus’s to birdbrains that took the company downhill.

We are the idiots because we voted these (expletive)’s into office. They do not think much of the common person because all we would do with this stimulus money is waste it by buying things, like food and housing. We might even feed our children. Washington DC is farming central, at least for hogs because there is a lot of porkbarreling going on.

We live in an age where a person is washed up at 40. It does not matter how much education we get. Employers want people that are twenty years old with thirty years experience so they can untrain them and retrain them in their own methods. I say this because people will get school loans to get an education that they can’t use to find work. Then the government collects every extra penny you have to repay those loans. They do NOT care about you. All the government is concerned about is money and the rich.

  1. You have Hit the NAIL right on the head!!! I agree 100 percent. If you are rich, the government gives you big tax breaks, and lots of money if you have a problem. (Then the owners of this failed corporation or bank can go on a wonderful government paid vacation.) They (the government) will bail out the big corporations. I have a neighbor who has a ranch. He is worth at least a million dollars and just for being a farmer, they (the government) gave him another million because he had a bad year. Plus I am sure that he has insurance that paid for his failed crops also. But the smaller farmer, who tries to make a living on his farm is not eligible for government help, and many of them end up selling their farm that has been in the family for years. There is something drastically wrong with this country. I am so glad that you wrote this article. Maybe it will stir up enough people to stand up and get things changed. Yes, this is another thing that makes me mad!!

  2. Ron, that’s a nice, spirited post! I will point out that I certainly did not vote the head idiot into office, and my congressmen were split as to their vote (I wrote to both of them). And, I agree with you. If our government was run like a business should be run, we’d be in a lot better position.

  3. Word of warning, Ron…although your blog is filled with truths, posting political opinions will result in a decline in your readership. I created a separate blog specifically for my rants because every time I posted something like this, I lost two or three people who stated they found my opinions offensive. I guess some people just can’t respect that we all don’t share a similar brain.

    Yesterday, I was so angry about what I’d seen on TV, I blogged about something other than books and writing on my ‘author’s blog’…yeppers, and this morning, I lost another reader who found my truthful post just too darn offensive. I hope she can get the sand out of her ears when she finally pulls her head out and takes a good long look at what is right in front of her face. It seems people want to pretend everything is just sunshine and roses… too bad it’s not. Only in fiction! I guess that’s why there are so many of us writing to escape the madness.

    Sorry to go on and on, but you impressed me with your courage to speak out.

  4. I agree that the bailouts have been all handled poorly. And the banks and investment companies still spend big bucks on bonuses and perks. What a mess has been made of the financial, political, corporate, and social fabric of our country.

  5. Hi Ron,
    I am an Aussie, but I can relate to what you are saying, our government has been doling out billions of tax-payers dollars too. And guess who got the lion’s share?

    Regards
    Margaret

  6. I only have one thing to say, rather than complain, do something about it! Not you specifically Ron, I’m talking about those people who don’t make any attempt at anything and then complain they don’t have what they want or need.

    You wrote a good post, but in my mind, it is society itself that is driving us to the road of destruction, not just the government.

    Practice what you preach, is my policy.

    I’m handicapped, on welfare and a single mother, and while I’d love to get a job, I think about people like my father who are on the verge of losing their jobs and feel, I’m better off where I’m at.
