Sung to the tune of Elvis Presley's "Are You Lonesome Tonight", this is the anthem for hard-pressed Americans who have not an inkling of the financial travesties going on in Washington. Bank bailouts, insurance commpany bailouts, auto union bailouts, stimulus, TARP, Pork, TALP -- billions going down the drain so quickly that Americans, except for a select few, are not up to the task of participating in their government. It's amazing how little people know about the vast, unprecedented 3-Card Monte played by Barack Obama and his phalanx of academic flunkies. Here are just a few questions people should be asking themselves?
Why does the Government allow one financial institution to fail while it gives billions to another?
Why are the Government car companies competing with private car companies and using Our Money to run private corporations out of business?
Why should we believe Obama's economic team when they call some businesses "too big to fail?"
Why is the Government throwing billions at GM and Chrysler and the UAW while screwing over the secured debtholders?
Why does private equity fund Cerberus, owner of Chrysler, get a free ride from the Government and is not required to invest some of its own billions to "rescue" Chrysler?
Why should anyone buy a car from a government monopoly owned car company that competes unfairly with private industry?
