A nice little video from one of my favorite YouTube personalities, Bob Thompson (a.k.a. Drinking With Bob). In his rants, he always tells it like it is - and never holds a thing back. No subtlety here folks, he just lets loose...
"You know who signed that stimulus bill? Barack Obama! Then he has the audacity to come out on TV the other day and be outraged. 'I can't believe these people are getting bonuses...' You signed a piece of paper making it possible for these people to get bonuses, YOU SCHMUCK!!!
Would you people WAKE UP! The government is playing a game with you, and no matter what freakin' number they roll, YOU FREAKIN' LOSE!!! You're worried about AIG? I'd be more worried about the GOV than AIG! Would you wake up! The only way we're going to stop this is to freakin' all grab a freakin' musket, and charge the freakin' White House! We're finished people! We're freakin' finished!!!"
If our dipshit politicians had half the balls, and a quarter of the common sense this guys has, we wouldn't be in the economic mess we're in now!
Note: I do not condone the idea of grabbing a musket and charging the White House. :P
It's not AIG. It's the GOV...
Partial video transtript:
"What's next? I'll tell you what's next...
AIG! AIG! Everybody's going nuts. I can't believe they're getting bonuses! I can't believe they're getting bonuses! Would you people wake up! AIG is a freakin' smoke screen to take your attention away from the real criminals in this country...the freakin' government!
The government is to blame for this problem. The government sits up on Capitol Hill, vilifying wall street like they're the problem. The government has been in bed with Wall Street from day one in this freaking economic disaster.
You know what one surefire way to keep AIG from getting bonuses was? NOT giving them a bailout to begin with! The American people knew this. The average citizen knew this. We said no bailouts - for anyone - on day freaking one. Did the government listen? No!
Bush, Bernanke, Paulson, Obama...they're all to blame. They were handing out money like it was going out of style and not paying attention to where it was going. This is like giving a kid a hundred dollars to buy school clothes and then getting mad when he comes home with video games and jelly beans. Are you kidding me?!!!..."
