Bailout Fallout

It now appears that the $700 billion financial bill that was shoved down our collective throats by Congress, against the will of three-quarters of Americans, is not going to necessarily be used for what the Bush Administration told us it would be used for; i.e. buying devalued securities from weak banks to help get credit flowing. Now, according to recent reports from the Associated Press, some of the money might be used to buy other banks, give raises and bonuses, and other fiscal foolishness. Now, insurance companies and maybe automakers want in on the gravy train. Jesus Christ. How much of this are we going to stand for? Are you sick of this bullshit yet? Are you?
