Someone Please Bail the Rest of Us Out
What kind of sick country is this? And this morning on the news I heard that Congress is meeting to discuss a bailout of the airlines. Oh, poor airlines. Not like there are MILLIONS of unemployed Americans out there who don't have the benefits they deserve, not to mention the old folks who can't get their medication, or the teachers who have to work for free, or the kids, who because the school year is being cut short, won't get breakfast or lunch - or that millions of children don't even get the health care they need (if not for the wonderful state medical care program here, for the first 6 months of my baby's life, he wouldn't have had health care because we were underemployed and had no benefits - I will always be thankful for the OHP that allowed for my Kid to get the check ups and shots he needed - most states don't have anything for kids of people who work hard, but just don't make ENOUGH)... but god forbid the government not hand over another billion or so to the poor, hurting airlines.
