The Great Train Robbery of 2008

The bailout is getting wild. It is over a trillion bucks pledged by taxpayers to bail out everything from AIG to The Big 3 to Fannie & Freddie Mae to Citicorp.

[Next thing you know Moe, Larry and Curly will show up looking for a bailout for their plumbing business. What a classic episode that was "A Plumbing We Will Go". If you saw it, you know they needed a real bailout] Click here for You Tube link:

Seriously, I am beginning to believe this whole thing is the greatest scam and heist of all time. Today, Drudge had a headline that the federal guarantees were up to almost $8 Trillion bucks.

Hell, if you added up every homeowner's mortgage balance in the USA, it would only be about $15 Trillion. Are we paying off the home mortgages for half of the country? If so, count me in - I want mine paid off too!

Aunt Zeituni and Where Your Tax Money Goes

I heard Senator Obama's Aunt Zeituni is an illegal immigrant who has been living in govt-funded public housing for 4-5 years. So I wondered how much taxpayers fork out for public housing here in the Philadelphia area. Here is the scoop below; the info is right from their website:

"The Philadelphia Housing Authority, also known as PHA, is the biggest landlord in Pennsylvania. We develop, acquire, lease and operate affordable housing for city residents with limited incomes. Our funding comes primarily from the federal government.

We house about 84,000 people in 13,400 housing units in the City of Philadelphia and we employ 1,150 people to deliver services to our clients. Our budget totals $347 million.It’s our policy to serve our customers without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, having AIDS, physical handicap, or disability."

Let me do the math for you. They spend $25,900 per unit year after year after year! [How much is your mortgage payment?] Yet I assume the same stinking lazy asses get free public housing year after year after year.

Look at it this way- every three years the taxpayers send the PHA One Billion dollars to house these 13,400 families. That is $78,000 per unit over three years. The average home in Philadelphia could be bought for about $150,000!

This is a great example that shows why the taxpayer is going broke!

People Wear Blinders

Great comment on Althouse's blog. The commenter was responding to an Obama supporter who wished the Republicans would give Obama a chance. Here is the comment:

"Once again: Where have you been the past eight years? Do you read blogs? Have you ever heard this guy Keith Olbermann? Jack Cafferty? Half the columnists at the NY Times? You reap what you sow. "
