Automakers want $22 billion

We are surrounded by people losing jobs. Clothing, fast food, construction, banks and a whole lot more are dying or at least writhing on the floor as the economy based on a fiat dollar comes to its predictable end. Yet as the flaming airplane plummets to the earth, the guys in the 1st class cabin continue to wheel and deal with other people’s money.

In the hallucinogenic world of Washington DC, printing up a bunch of Monopoly money to hand out to guys building cars that nobody will buy is an act they can sell to the rubes at a personal profit.

While YOU lost your $10.00-per-hour job and are fretting the source of your next bag of groceries, your elected buffoon has printed money for car builders with beginning unskilled wages at $28.61 per hour and the team above that dashboard assembler ranging up to $64,000,000 a year plus perks and bonuses.

Somehow that is supposed to be good for you.

No. It is supposed to be believed by you that it is in your self-interest, and not really a selfish act by a corrupt body as it appears to be.

Well, as P.T. Barnum said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.”
