When I started this blog I had no idea we'd be here today. The economy in this country is in its worst financial crisis, maybe ever. I just want to get out how we are feeling about what is going on in the world today.
First we are retired and live on a fixed income. We were very frugal during our working years to be able to have what we do now. We also feel the pain of our children and grandchildren who are working and many do not know if their jobs are secure or not let alone their retirement.
Second I have a sister and brother in law who just had to move to another state to take a job because, "They couldn't afford him anymore." This is the kind of thing that will be happening for many Americans.
Third we also have in our subdivision in our community about 15+/- empty, forclosed or houses that have just not been completed for lack of funds. The American people are hurting and they want to use our tax dollars to bail them out.
Who are they?
and the like whose CEOs still get their big salaries while the average American gets shafted! And the government won't interfere with their income, but they don't care that we are homeless, hungry or jobless. Shame on American polititians, the president, Congress and others who are doing this to the American people. It feels like rape and pillaging.
We are against the bailout. This is wrong. There is criminal activity at work here and the powers that be want us the taxpayer to pay for this. It is wrong. Let the market take care of itself. Those who are in control of the market should be held accountable for what has happened there.
We are retired Americans who are tired of being the people who bail out America as the rich get wealthier and we get taxed.
I would like to know why the media is not reporting what the American people are saying and what we want. Instead the media is reporting what the benefits of the bailout is or is not. This is irrelevant to us. We don't want our tax dollars used to go to something that we don't know will work. And we don't think it will.
