Let’s give bailouts to everyone

Maybe its time for neighborhood bailouts since it seems everyone else has their hand out. It started out with insurance companies and banks being bailed out. Then American Express needs a bailout.

I don’t suppose that would have anything to do with the fact that they offer credit cards to anyone who is breathing.

I have a dog that gets approved credit cards fairly often. She is a pretty good dog, but probably not a very good credit risk; but then her ability to pay may be as good as some who are offered a line of credit. It seems the people who borrowed money for houses they couldn’t afford need a bailout.

I wish I had known this was possible when I bought my house, and I wouldn’t have been concerned with buying a house that I could afford.

Next, we have states that need a bailout and then of course, we need to bailout cities too.

The auto manufacturers are lining up for their bailout now. Why should we stop there? Our neighborhood could use a bailout too. Not much, just a million or two would do fine. It seems that we’ve reached a point where no one needs to be accountable for their debts. Let’s just bail everyone out.

No need to worry, because the taxpayers can easily pickup the bill.
