corpoRATe welfare mothers line up for more government cheese as obamessiah serves up speech fondue
Here’s a suggestion for real hope, change and responsibility:

Well Cricketeers, it’s no secret that I have been against the corpoRATe welfare bailouts from the start. I said they wouldn’t work, and the proof of that just keeps coming. This from the zoo youk times:
U.S. Pressed to Add Billions to Bailouts
By EDMUND L. ANDREWS, ANDREW ROSS SORKIN and MARY WILLIAMS WALSH
Published: February 23, 2009
The government faced mounting pressure on Monday to put billions more in some of the nation’s biggest banks, two of the biggest automakers and the biggest insurance company, despite the billions it has already committed to rescuing them.
The government’s boldest rescue to date, its $150 billion commitment for the insurance giant American International Group, is foundering. A.I.G. indicated on Monday it was now negotiating for tens of billions of dollars in additional assistance as losses have mounted.
Separately, the Obama administration confirmed it was in discussions to aid Citigroup, the recipient of $45 billion so far, that could raise the government’s stake in the banking company to as much as 40 percent.
The Treasury Department named a special adviser to work with General Motors and Chrysler, two of Detroit’s biggest automakers, which are seeking $22 billion on top of the $17 billion already granted to them.
All these companies’ mushrooming needs reflect just how hard it is to stanch the flow of losses as the economy deteriorates. Even though the government’s finances are being stretched — and still more aid might be needed in the future — it is being forced to fill the growing holes in the finances of these companies out of fear that the demise of an important company could set off a chain reaction.
The basic free market economics lesson is, if management makes bad decisions the company SHOULD go out of business! Really, those feckless appaRATchiks in washingtOOn threw good taxpayer money after bad and expected these companies to mend their ways. It hasn’t happened. These corpoRATe crooks are back looking for more handouts. And statusquobama is more then willing to oblige.
Speaking of that latest ethically challenged corpoRATe spokesmoron in the oval orifice, did ya catch any of his televised speech last night? I did, and it left me wondering where this guy goes to buy his phony sincerity. Really, if you wanna learn to project world class, soy based, fair market, industrial strength, faux sincerity, obamessiah is the study for you!
In this little speech he gave he hit on all the usual sentimental bullshit every damn crap artist politician I’ve ever heard speak spews. The nonsense patriotism, the references to the glorious past that never really existed. In all it was a standard, substandard bull job, start to finish with only the addition of those famous obamessiah loose change poetics and excuse catechism.
DAGNABIT! What really pissed me off the most was his refusal to admit that his dirty dem party was involved in what he insists on referring to as the “inherited” budget deficit. By wrongly claiming he and his party were not involved in the out of control military budget and corpoRATe welfare spending., he refuses to take “responsibility” which is a word he seems to believe only applies to others, and not himself and his dirty dem party. Let me be clear here. The dirty dems are just as guilty as the filthy repubs concerning the mismanagement of our federal budget and the rest of our economy. That goes double for the rest of the pig rich corpoRATeers!
SONOFABUSH! The filthy repub response given by swami bobby jindal was even worse. It was the classic filthy repub Stupidcide™ rope trick, with all the same old failed right wing agenda bullshit. I’m glad to see that the repubs still haven’t figured out that they have no idea what the hell they’re talking about. As clueless as the dirty dems are. They are still twice as in touch as the idiot repubs. A shame that this is all just smoke and mirrors rhetoric. The plan remains massive corpoRATe welfare and out of control military spending, the rest of us are screwed.
The following is a public service announcement from ClapSotronics:
laBAMAnostra and laBUSHanostra agree:
- That the disaster of a war should continue indefinitely. laBAMAnostra has the same exit strategy as laBUSHanostra did, no exit strategy what so ever! The corpoRATe pigs agree the current war should be escalated and additional wars should be started whenever possible!
- That the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel spending on ever larger pentagon budgets should continue and money “should be no object” when it comes to the funding of military death and destruction! paygo my ass!
- That the thieving corpoRATe insurance companies (the rotten aig being only the tip of the corpoRATe iceberg in the insurance larceny business) should be able to continue to pocket almost half of our health care dollars via the waste fraud and abuse filled current “free market health care system.” This ripoff comes in the form of over the top corpoRATe insurer “administrative costs” and corpoRATe drug pusher profiteering even as the rest of us are badly served by their wealth care, NOT REALLY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM!
- That the wal-fare system (click this link to see how I defined the wal-fare system in an earlier post) started by the klinton klan co-presidents slick willy and hillary dillary doo (she a former walmart board member and both former co-presidents are now made members of laBAMAnostra) and made ever worse by the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel funding of so called “faith based” organizations should be able to continue to poverty pimp we poor folks into ever deeper poverty! Punitive policies that force us into slave labor, low wage “jobs” and sermons are no replacement for the basic human needs based system we should have!
- That the inherently dishonorable corpoRATe criminals should be allowed to continue to “self police” as the idiots in washingtOOn chant the tired deregulation mantra!
It’s time to put an end to deregulation and the kid glove wrist slap treatment they get by regulating the corpoRATeers and RICO statute CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I are sick of the two parties of the apocalypse and their talk, talk, talk!
