The economy is really taking some hard hits as of late...

The most recent amt mentioned (17 billion dollars) is less than one half of one percent of what the bloated leech called the Federal government extorts out of us every year. If we bail them out the Union has to be reined in too. So far they have driven seven or eight airlines and the American merchant marine into the ground, and forced most companies to outsource overseas rather than pay what they demand.

Oh BTW, the bailout bill collapsed in the senate exactly because the unions still want to be able to jack up their wages.
