Let's Talk Bailout or Corporate Welfare
This is just another example of the rich taking care of their rich brothers. Hey when I screw up nobody comes and bails me out. I have to figure a way out the mess I created on my own. But not others this year I have watched the government come to the aid of people who bought houses they could not afford, instead of rewarding those of us who live in a prudent manner and now this.
I am pissed off and you should be to. Companies these days are led by accountants who say we can make more money right now if we send jobs overseas, especially us that are running the businesses because they don't try to look down the road some and see what may be looming. The days of the person that started out at a low level and learned a business from the ground up are gone so the world is now being run by accountants and those of you who think lawyers are part of the problem why don't you look at what accountants have done.
But truly let your elected officials know you are pissed off at the bailing out all these poorly run institutions and tell them it is time to start looking out for the people in this country.
Ride For Kids Raises over $70,000
Sam Clary of Troy, Mo., won the grand prize, a new Honda motorcycle.
Many thanks went to the event's task force leaders, Greg Hoette, Norm and Angie Riekena, John and Lorrie Lehmann, and Charlie and Shirley Barnett. Along with a wonderful crew of volunteers, they gave the kids a day to remember.
