The Pot Calls the Kettle Black

Talk of the AIG bonuses are all over the televised news, internet blogs, and even Facebook.

What’s so exciting about this money? Why, it’s 165 million dollars! That’s 165,000,000. Alot of money, isn’t it? In fact, through some simple division, those bonsues cost each taxpayer  55 cents(165,000,000/303,824,640 American citizens). Outrageous! You know that quarter you found on the street the other day, and the next quarter you find? Both will go to AIG employees in bonuses. And you’ll still owe them a nickel. How dare they spend this money? Aren’t you glad that President Obama is pursuing every legal path to block those bonuses?

Actually, if you think about it, President Obama has also been spending taxpayer money through a binding contract with the American people. In fact, just recently, he signed a bill worth 787 billion dollars. (that’s 787,000,000,000) That bill has created $2590.31 in national debt for you and each of your children. (787,000,000,000/303,824,640 American citizens) You know that quarter you found on the street the other day? Throw it back. It won’t help in paying that sum off.

In fact, since you’re the government’s cosigner on every loan they take, you owe an equal share of 11,019,358,248,648 in national debt. Your equal share is payable in a friendly payment plan called inflation. You and each of your children owe $36,368.81 in government created debt. If you want to buy something, you had better buy it now, because you won’t be able to afford it once they raise taxes and start printing more money. But just think, if it weren’t for our government borrowing so much money, and making so many regulations, where would the US economy be now? Read Stossel’s article about it.

So next time you hear President Obama making angry remarks about ‘corporate greed’ at AIG, just think of what he himself has done, and of the 3.6 trillion dollar budget he proposed recently. Can anyone say ‘The pot calling the kettle black‘?

As long as you’re here, be sure to thank the few congressmen who voted against increasing your debt.
