Thought for the day

Posted: March 31, 2009 in faux liberalism, government hypocrisy, human rights, obama

Why are contracts sacred when they’re signed by executives but fungible when signed by unionized line workers?  And why is Obama treating the car companies so differently from the way he’s been treating the banks and finance sector?

    This is what lots of inquiring minds want to know. This is all the talk on the left. We need less Wall Street, more Main Street. Of equally amusing import is the way the Right is freaking over the firing of the GM CEO, admonishing Obama for setting a “dangerous precedent”; don’t they remember when Paulson fired the AIG exec?

    Get this: some fiscal conservatives are complaining that GM owes 20 mil to the UAW health care pot–hey, that is the exactly equal amount of severance Wagoneer received. There’s the cash, right there.

    I’d say “unbelievable”, but I’m afraid my capacity for amazement has pretty much been exhausted by now. By now there are no depths of indecency that these people will not plumb, nor heights of hubris that they will not ascend. It’s time they were brought down to our level and kept there.

    The best way to punish a rich bastard is to make him a poor bastard.
