    :D

    The sickening irony...our government is outraged, just OUTRAGED! that auto execs would DARE to fly in jets to Washington DC with hat in hand begging for money to bail them out.

    Then...

    That same government sends Hillary Clinton on a jet to China with hat in hand begging for money to bail them out.

    And Hillary and the Dems basically said human rights will take a backseat to the financial matters at hand. I loved that comment! Let's talk money and forget about all that human rights crapola. Ha ha.

    Yes...like we have been doing with Saudi Arabia for years and years.

    Crazy stuff. Oh...they support terrorists on the sly, have a huge number of terrorist camps in their country. That's ok, we need them.

    And then, to sign the bailout bill. Obama and Biden fly to Denver to make a huge ceremony out of it.... And they fly on separate planes. No jet-pooling for our politicians.

    Yep. It's what happens when we become dependant on other nations for our livelihood...whether it's because we want oil we don't want to drill for here, or for more money than we have by selling debt.

    We were warned about foreign entanglements. The founders were not referring solely to military ventures. They were also referring to things exactly like our dependence on the middle east for our energy needs and Mexico for our food and our debt to China.

    All anybody has to do is read Washington's Farewell Address.
