when the sun is shining
and wants it back the minute it begins to rain."

    and a Life Insurance salesman is a man who is betting you are going to live while you are betting that you are going to die. And I'll be generally you protect his interest since you do every thing to continue to live.

    And when the banker goes into the red because of risky investments using their depositors money, they want the taxpayers to pick up the tab. I guess a banker is the one person in the game not allowed to lose.

    Welfare is when the government bails out the people. What we have now is corporate welfare because the government is bailing out corporations. When little people get assistance either unemployment or welfare, they have to stand in lines to get each check and make an accounting for themselves to prove that they still deserve to receive the check. Why should these rich bastards be treated any better than the rest of us. Make them stand in line too. Make them sell off their assets to make ends meet also. We are always treated as though we are less of ma being. Make them know how we feel. After all it is our money that is bailing them out and they would never bail us out. How about those scum bags footing some of the bill too. Had enough? I have!
