Jump.....

Back during the 1929 financial crash it was said that

some Wall Street stockbrokers and bankers jumped from


their office windows and committed suicide when


confronted with the news of their firms' and clients'


financial ruin . . . Many people were said to almost feel a


little sorry for them . . . . . .?



In 2008, the attitude seems to have changed somewhat:

What next?? The auto industry?!? And, at what cost to the American public?!

I'm fed up...................

Ditto, sister.

I heard some jackhole on the news today saying that by 2012, our society will be worse than the movie Mad Max. Times 10. I think he voted for McCain.

It's all a disgrace. Even better when the GM Execs flew in on their private jets and it was announced they make 28 million a year. They can jump too.

It's terrifying times, I agree with Kimberley, the GM execs disgraced me. Coming to beg with tin cup in hand getting off private jets, shame on them..

I think it's time certain leaders remember or learn that they need to lead by example. They are part of the problem, not the solution.

You know, it's about time. There needs to be regulation on wall street...no, I'm not proposing Communist or Socialist regulations(although the crazies think anyone with a brain must be a fucking Marxist)...what I am saying, is even Alan Greenspan said his 'idea of self regulation' failed.

If 'we' can't self-regulate responsibly($28 mill for a salary is not responsible) then there needs to be laws in place to govern how business is conducted.

It's just not morally right to take these kinds of salaries and lay off thousands of people because your 'business plan' has flaws.

Not only is this country fast approaching financial bankruptcy, but it is clear to me that there is also a moral and humantarian bankruptcy impending...

disaster.

Thanks Bush.

(before anyone flames you, or me, I need to say that there is responsibilty on both parties sides, but remember Clinton left office with a surplus, Bush is leaving the White House in FORCLOSURE)...

I love that picture, had it on my blog. Of course the Bush administration is not taking any fault in this, it was all started by the Clinton administration per them.
