Bail Out Packages?
To be honest I don’t remember how it all started, who went first, who said what about who. But here are some things that people like me hear. Notice I said hear, because we are always writing and only halfway listening. The other half is hear-say. Well this is what I hear and this is what I say.
Hear Say: You need help staying in business. Your business is a giant vehicle manufacturer. Your first step in the right direction according to you is laying people off.
You Say: Without us the economy will be worse.
I say: What? Hold up. You just laid working people off, you charge too much for a car, One of your cheap cars is equal to more than two years of what I make.
Hear say: Your CEO’s get over a million dollars in bonus money more than once a year. Fancy cars, private jets, and sushi in France’ with the mistress.
You Say: You’ll cut back, they will drive hybrids. Yada, Yada, Yada.
I say: What? How about you bail yourself out. Sell all the jets, cut all the bonuses, sell all the fancy cars. Try giving some hard working people their jobs back. How about you make a cheaper car that real everyday hard working people can afford without selling their first born. The more of those you make the higher your profit. Think about the “real” people that make this world tick. Yes you worked hard to get to where you are, but so did we.
On to the latest.
You say: I need a bail out, our porn is not selling.
Hear say: You need a bail out, because seems that under age naked girls are offensive to their parents. And causes problems. Hard to make it with only one person running the camera, and profits are down.
I say: What? You want a bail out so you can continue filming teenagers who will one day regret their decision for letting a guy with a camera film there boobs. I say lay the camera down and walk away quietly your lucky to have gotten away with that crap in the first place.
Last but not least!:
Bail me out!
Just like the previous two bailouts I talk about, I too have made poor judgments. I too have too much on my plate…some of it at my own hands. I don’t film people 1/2 naked drinking, and I don’t greedily spend millions just because my name is so and so CEO. I am a mother who often works three jobs to support a family of four. Two of those being a 16 year old son and a 15 year old daughter. My partner became ill 4 years ago which mentally, physically and financially has been more than a little demanding.
So I Say: You don’t know what sacrifice is until you tell your kids, sorry no presents again this year for the third year. And if our government is going to be so quick to bail out people who just don’t use their brains, maybe during your mindless wonder you can pass some of that bailout money to people who actually need it…….and I don’t mean people who had one of their 5 houses foreclosed on. I mean working mothers, and fathers who bust their but just to watch you waste our tax money on your stupidity.
