Last week we were all intertained with the leftist liberals screams of how the world would end if we didn't bail out wall street, and managed to panic enough of the congress into spending 700 billion dollars to buy up bad mortgages and bail out the greedy wall street firms. The market continues to fall this week, which kinda tells ya what real business people think of the bailout plan.
Obama has increased his lead in the polls, so its a pretty obvious indicator that the Leftist liberals have sold their snake oil, and convince everyone that they are poor and deserve more and everyone is now heading out to their local welfare offices to sign up for the the govenment give aways.
California afte years of having the leftist liberals entrenched in government here is now formally applying to the government for a bailout load of 7 billions dollars. Whats interesting to see is that Nancy Pelosi (a represenative from California no less), feels we should wait to see who wins the election, and is troubled that the request comes from a state with a Republican Govenor. California is so broke, we can't pay for government services, the leftists refused to cut spending on any of the welfare programs, and Arnold refused to raise taxes, although he did sign a bill to increase the sales tax another full percentage point,, supposedly a temporary measure for three years----yeahh rightttt!! Today none of the financial institutions will buy new bonds, so we need to be bailed out. Many other states will soon be looking for bailout funds from washington----and of course the leftists love that as it gives them what they want total control of the country, welcome to the socialist states of America.
----Meanwhile, back at the Ranch, life goes on-----least now we can blame the leftist liberal democrats for the mess we are in for the next few years.
