Bailing water or bailing HOPE?

I'm usually not a political type, and hate to discuss it anywhere... but this isn't political ~ it's finances and not just mine as I am a taxpayer, but everyone's....

This bail-out of the financial institutions angers me... that so much money will be used for assisting those financial organizations is not fair...

WHY?

When americans were encountering difficulties in paying their mortgages, these same loan offices didn't try to help them. They just tightened the reins and made it more difficult, till they foreclosed on their homes. Many families lost their homes and their lives.... lives were shattered and nobody did anything to help these people. Nobody cared and the lines of homeless grew, and these lines included children.

Now these same institutions that refused to lend a caring ear to americans who were experiencing the most difficult times of their lives, are in the same "boat"... and LOOK who is bailing them out?

Let them go to the streets like the people they foreclosed on! Let them lose their belongings, their dignity, their routines and their lives. Let them start living at friends' homes, and/or on sofas and possibly the street....

Who cries for those who have lost their homes? NObody....

Remember this when you pass them on the street - look them in the eye and give them a smile or a bit of food. The next day it could be you or me....

Who will help us then?

  1. Mmmm Why are they being bailed out? Because, the rich have a vested interest in the banks and financial institutions. That’s why. This is not being done to help the average person but to help those who can afford to play the stock market.

    I agree with you.
