Water in the boat is the ruin of the boat, but water under the boat is its support.



Three of President Obama's nominees for cabinet so far have been found evading taxes.

The financial giant, Wells Fargo, which our government bailed out earlier this year, was now caught planning
a lavish retreat to Las Vegas. I didn't get to hear on the news what their excuse was, but I heard they tried to justify it.

A man by the name of Madoff, pulled an outrageous "Punk'd" on the investor market. Over the past decade he amassed over $50 billion dollars in investments with fraudulent intentions. I love practical jokes but I'm not laughing Mr. Madoff.

The Securities and Exchange Commission, despite repeatedly recieving whistle-blower tips, never investigated into Madoff's scheme. They are proud, however, that they've recovered $1 billion of the stolen money. Woop-ti-doo.

While Wall Street suffers dramatic losses, executives soar high, recently awarded $18.2 billion in bonuses. Who decides this stuff?

Looks like these big guys and girls in Washington, New York, and God knows every corner of this blessed Earth, are the water in OUR boat.

I just find it interesting how your average American is opposed to having a social state that helps out the little man with things like health and education.
And then they end up helping out the big corporations.
Oh well ...

Perplxintexan: I believe that this huge bailout bullsh*t is to get us all to nod our heads in the yes motion when he introduces more socializing things such as putting caps on incomes.... hmmm scary.

It's all orchestrated, we'll watch with baited breath.
