8,000,000,000,000


There was $29 billion for Bear Stearns, $345 billion for Citigroup. The Federal Reserve put up $600 billion to guarantee money market deposits. With the bail out package of the auto industry, all told, the price tag so far: $7.2 trillion. Now comes President-elect Barack Obama's economic stimulus plan. The bill is getting awfully close to $8 trillion...

Where the heck is my share?

I think you'll find it all in the Bahamas or Swiss bank a/cs of all the very highly paid CEO's of Corporate America that ripped the American public off in the first place.
They should be taking all those assetts off the crooks first!

We should all get a new car, at least, since we are PAYING enough for them...

What is this word 'share' you speak of?

Really. Where's my bail out? I didn't refinance myself out of my house, I didn't get taken in a scheme or scheme any takers. I paid my taxes, worked hard, behaved myself and now I can't find work and I struggle to make ends meet. Where's my fucking bail out?

I still have no clue why we are giving companies with bad or poor business practives money to continue. I would think you would take that money and give grants to people with great ideas to start new businesses or good companies to help them grow and expand.

Have a fantastic weekend. Still thumbing through my recipes.

I thank you all for your comments!
I am a bit tired these days, state of hibernation of sorts, so I will not comment individually.
At least Chrysler is making an effort, of yet again pushing out an electric car after all the other previous attempts got destroyed, literally!
We'll just have to wait and see how serious they are this time around...
