Here we go again.  Instead of fixing the problem, let's put our tails between our legs and throw money on it, just like we did last time.  Yeah, that'll get us outta here and out on the golf course.  After all, we get hundreds of millions of dollars every year to support our campaigns.

What the hell, it's not our money any way.  The taxpayers can afford it.

After being responsible for the care and feeding of such organizations as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, it's truly amazing Washington ever had the balls to criticize any form of welfare what-so-ever, no matter how ineffective and/or repugnant their programs may have become.


After all, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are no better than financial welfare programs for the already wealthy.  Those responsible for the day-to-day operations and management of these two behemoths have only one duty to accomplish in the fulfillment of their employment, and that is to collect any and all profits that can possibly be squeezed out of these two out-dated and obsolete financial gravy trains, for themselves and the shareholders.


Any and all financial liability, responsibility, indebtedness associated with their existence falls directly upon the tax payers of this nation. What a sweet-heart deal that is... for everyone but the tax payers of course. The top ten positions at these two organizations have annual salaries over $1M ea. And more than $240M in bonuses were paid out recently despite the blatant mismanagement and/or fraud that has been taking place for years at these two organizations.


Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac along with the Federal Reserve itself are nothing but glorified welfare gravy trains for the wealthiest citizens of this nation.  Actually, the fact of whether or not they are truly citizens is merely an assumption on my part.


It simply makes paying taxes that much more disgusting task to say the least. After all, it certainly appears that none of the taxes have been used for any form of law enforcement, certainly not in this country anyway, and most definitely not for our benefit and/or protection.
