I am so confused?
Well, here in America it was the darlings of the conservatives, those might warriors of Wall Street that brought the economy to its knees. I can't believe that someone who was on the "dole" could possibly cost society enough to take out those $billions of dollars.
Oh, but by all means! Please, as you always have, ignore the truth and wait for the next time. And... there will be a next time! S&L, insider trading, ENRON, Global Crossing, TYCO, internet bubble, wall street melt down, WEB 2.0 melt down. Sure, it is all the fault of someone getting something for nothing... like food for their kids.
You see, in America, people are finally getting wise to that garbage. Blame the workers, chase the woman using food stamps to see what kind of car she is driving... while we were being robbed blind to the tune of $billions... tens of $billions... hundreds of $billions!
That is why the Repubs and Conservatives got their butts handed to them in 2006 and 2008. We just ain't buying it anymore. Sadly, I doubt if my friends there blaming "Labor" can deal with something that doesn't fit on a bumper sticker.
Your American Cousin!
