Let me just start out by saying I am not happy with what our government is doing. I am not happy that a disgusting amount of money is going to companies that do not deserve our money.

Don’t quote me, but with 700 billion dollars every American could receive somewhere in the neighborhood of $2000 a piece. That would be some economic stimulus plan….huh?

Apparently our banking system, which has been in place since the Great Depression, is failing. There are two reasons that I can come up with: 1) bad business practices and 2) corporate stealing.

Banks have been giving individuals loans for decades. These loans range from money for college, money for cars, and money for homes. Somewhere along the way, these financial institutions have given loans to those who do not qualify.

I am in shock at learning that some of these companies have qualified people that haven’t even proven they have jobs! Whenever I have applied for a loan, I’ve had to jump through hoops to prove not only that I was employed, but also that I made a certain amount of money.

What perplexes me the most about this “bailout” is that many are suggesting that there is severe mismanagement in these companies. If mismanagement is the case, then these companies should not be bailed out. The business practices of these companies should be re-examined.

As a taxpayer, I am tired of my money going to: programs that haven’t worked in years, programs that morally I am against, and companies that pay their CEOs, COOs, and CFOs millions of dollars a year.

Congress is doing everything in its power to hurry this legislation through before educating the taxpayers who’s money will be paying for these bailouts. We are being told that this will help our country, but how will this help our country when our financial system is going down the drain right before our eyes?

Recession-depression…..For crying out loud, we haven’t seen a real recession since the Reagan years.

And on another note: Read the book of Revelations. Seriously….is this what we are heading for?
