I LOVE whoever is holding up this sign behind Paulson. That's the funniest thing that's come out of this whole mess.
As I'm sure you all can guess, Ashley is not pleased about this $700 billion bail out. Something about it just doesn't seem quite fair to me, and of course as a bargain hunter I cannot condone this type of behavior.
So you gambled on real estate and lost your ass and the gov is going to help you back up....I gambled on real estate, lost my ass, and I'm going to be forced to help you back up while struggling to bail water out of my own sinking ship....Hmmmm.
So, in my spare time (and I don't have a lot these days), I have come up with a new solution. Instead of giving the $700 billion to billionaires--let's give it to everyone who can't pay their bills!
In turn, they'll pay their bills and stop being homeless and banks will have money again and the world can continue to go round! Also, naturally any executive working at one of these failed corporations will donate their salary and assets (because you lose all that shit anyway when you go bankrupt...trust me, I've checked) to the deficit and they'll have to hope that our social service system works well enough to care for them in their time of need.
See? Easy as that. If I wasn't so busy doing more important things, like being a mother, I'd run for office.
