Blues from the Economy — Bailing Out — on March 21, 2009

We are hurting in the money department

No, wait! The love of money is the root of all evil! So are we less evil because we don’t have any. Or were the Fatcats who got us here more evil?

Go figure…

ki6amd: I have to wonder… why aren’t people mad at the people giving #bailout to #AIG ? Oh, Obama is involved… I forgot #bailout
