Thought for the Day

One thing that no one seems to have mentioned about the huge bailouts of "companies too large to fail" is that these same companies have been drumming it into our heads for years that they are "multinational" or "global" companies. So, when it comes to giving credit cards and home loans to illegal aliens or decidedly un-American ads in foreign countries, they have proven beyond a doubt that they have grown far beyond our borders.

So why are they in Congress begging for handouts? Why aren't they in begging in Mexico, since that government was in favor of the loans to their citizens abroad? Why aren't they at the UN's doorstep? We supposedly have to be seen in a better light by other nations - why not give them a stake in managing the companies that reside within their borders? If these companies are too big to fail, shouldn't they have at least a bit of self interest? Why, we could go arm in arm with the European Union, working together for a global brotherhood in the rescue of these poor oversized companies - it's a win-win for all!

The coffee will kick in soon, and I'll be back to normal quick, I promise......
