WHAT ABOUT BAILING OUT THE AMERICAN WORKER
Dr. Laurie Roth

There isn’t enough medication and laughing gas!!! What does our Government think it is doing? Are they trying to be put in a straight jacket and drool in the corner of a light pink room? Do they think we are in the other corner of the light pink room, staring cross-eyed back at them?
Nearly another 900 billion has been approved by congress for ‘emergency’ bailouts. This is money us tax payers will be forced to pay, but of course, I should have that teamwork attitude and help save the nation. We might die without this money and these emergency priorities. Right?
Lets look at some of these desperately important life savers stuck into the bail out bill. Film and Television Productions (of course that’s the first thing you think of when your raft is sinking at sea with sharks circling, what movie is airing Friday night); Wooden Arrows designed for use by the kiddies (With Terrorists threatening and attacking, all kids should have loaded wood and arrow sets) Let’s not forget the Exxon Valdez, there are pages of earmarks for litigants in the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill; We have to spend big bucks on Virgin Island Puerto Rican Rum; (Foreign rum is the first thing you need when losing your job and home) Then there is money for Auto Racing Tracks and Wool Research…..on and on the insanity goes!
May I contribute Mr. President? How about 2 billion for cuticle research. I want 6 billion to research shavers that don’t leave leg stubble within 24 hours; 10 billion to research and stop once and for all hair that grows on women’s chins; That is definitely a national emergency. Men don’t tend to like bearded ladies. Other funded studies should include, Dog Hair and its relationship to mental illness and the effects of moles on personality.
Oh it gets better as we tackle this hideous emergency that only Government can deal with.
Just this week a top Republican congressional aide talked about the over $800 billion economic stimulus measure could steer Government money to illegal aliens. So far the Democratic sponsored bill makes illegal aliens eligible for tax credits of $500 per worker and $1,000 per couple. Isn’t that precious? Of course millions here working illegally and breaking our laws should have us all pitch in billions to pay them for the privilege.
Where are the earmarks and billions to pay for and fix all the carbon emissions trauma we cause just by being alive, driving trucks and shining the wrong light bulbs? There has to be at least 20 billion for that part of our melt down.
Seriously, when you look at the humongous umbrella packages and pay outs to the “talented” money people of the AIG and Merrill Lynches types, then the good money after bad money to the big bankers, you have to pause and wonder. Is there any common sense left anywhere in our Government. I’M SORRY, BUT THE BIG, SICK, DEBT RIDDEN AND STUPID BANKS WHO PUSHED DISTORTED LOANS UPON LOANS UPON LOANS, SHOULD GO OUT OF BUSINESS!!! As it is with the billions given them now, it only stalls the inevitable and steals from all of us.
A real priority for spending bail out money to avert a national disaster
With all the talk of billions, now trillions to bail out idiot and fat cat things, not once has our Government talked about bailing out and following through on their long held pension guarantees. We have millions upon millions of workers who have paid and are paying in good faith into pension funds believing in the backing of our Government pension guarantees all these years. Last night I talked with a respected International Finance expert and adviser on my show who brought up the potential disaster of the pension plans being either dropped or sliced to very small. You talk about a national disaster and losses to our economy, now that would be one! If our Government insists on spending hundreds of billions of dollars for bailouts, forget the banks, do the minimum for car companies, tell the states to pull back and re organize BUT MAKE GOOD ON THE AMERICAN WORKERS PENSION GUARANTEES.
