Another One Bites The Dust

It seems that since General Motors chairman and chief executive, G. Richard Wagoner Jr., was unable to gain any real concessions from the United Auto Workers union and unwilling to put GM into bankruptcy, the government has decided that he must go before any further bailout monies will be given to GM. It was announced today that Wagoner will step down immediately. Wagoner will survive. Unfortunately, this is likely the death knell for the intransigent auto workers at GM who were just not going to be satisfied until they killed the goose that laid the golden egg.

Dumber Than Dirt

While visiting Africa, the Pope took the opportunity to reiterate the Catholic church's ban on artificial birth control including condoms, no matter that

More than 22 million people in sub-Saharan Africa are infected with HIV, according to a 2008 UNAIDS/WHO report. Nine out of 10 children with HIV in the world live in the region, which has 11.4 million orphans because of AIDS, the report said, and 1.5 million people there died of the disease in 2007.

Read the entire CNN.com article here.

This highlights how out of touch with reality the Catholic church really is.

Bonuses!?! What A Surpirse...

These guys in our government are idiots!!! That includes the current and past Presidents, the current and past treasury secretaries, and most, if not all, of the 535 members of Congress, past and present. It is not surprising that no one was aware that the AIG bonuses were already in place when it was decided to bail them out. No need to do any due diligence...Congress just decided to cut them a check for $170 billion dollars or whatever the exact amount ended up to be.

The reason I say it is not surprising is that they didn't bother to read any of the stimulus/bailout/budget packages. They didn't have time. They threw these spending packages together and voted on them before anyone could possibly read them, much less analyze them, no matter how large the check was going to be written for, ultimately spending trillions of dollars. They are writing checks so fast they don't have time to figure out what they bought; how much they lent; who they lent to; or which way is up.

The American people who elect these idiots time, after time, after time are going to get exactly what they deserve - screwed.

Rewarding Terrorism Obama Style

The United States is broke. We are borrowing against our children's futures, yet Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is giving $900 million dollars, hard-earned taxpayer dollars we don't have, to the terrorists in the Gaza strip. Now Hamas won't have to spend their or their supporters' (read Iran) money taking care of their people. They can use their money to buy rockets to continue in their quest to obliterate Israel.

Obama declared himself a supporter of Israel during the campaign. How exactly does this help Israel? Every American Jew who voted for Obama should be ashamed of themselves.
