5 things that Piss Me Off & Show Why We're In Trouble

1) Congress is making plans to pass mandatory health care for all Americans. Yet Congress won't eat their own cooking. Anyone ever seen the plans that Congress has for themselves? If not, click here...they have great options, of which 75% are paid by the hardworking taxpayers of the US. I am not in favor of any of what Congress and the President are trying to pass.

2) Goldman Sachs, after sleeping with the government by putting their criminal CEO Henry Paulson in as Treasury Secretary, had the walls cave in on them and depended on the American taxpayer to save them via the TARP fund and becoming a "bank" instead of an investment bank. So how do they repay the taxpayer? By trying to pay back only 1/2 the TARP funds they received and keeping the rest of their RECORD profits to dole out to employees who ran illegal trading schemes that gave them an unfair advantage. Remember how Halliburton was in bed with the Republican administration of Bush? Goldman has managed to be in bed with both Obama and Bush administrations.

3) The BS employment rate...I mean the BLS unemployment rate, which the government says is 9.5% but anyone with half a brain knows is much higher than that.

4) Banks are making record profits but are not lending at all, or making you bend backward, take it in the arse, and then tell you they promise they'll call you in the morning.

5)That until the public had an outcry, the Treasury Department had a job opening for a "humor expert cartoonist"". The job offering has since been cancelled. Among the duties included:
Humor in the Workplace programs that will discuss the power of humor in the workplace, the close relationship between humor and stress, and why humor is one of the most important ways that we communicate in business and office life
