The Bailout!

4 Oct

Finally, the Congress passed the bailout bill. I, as everyone else, have been thinking about the bill and the consequences of not passing it the last few weeks. I do not know what is right but this is what comes from my heart.

We are today a country of angry citizens because we have been put in a situation that is not our doing. We are today a country of frightened citizens not knowing what tomorrow brings. We are today a country of outraged citizens that a government built on so many checks and balances failed in protecting our finances. We are today a country of worried citizens not sure whether we will have a job tomorrow. We are today a country of incensed citizens that people in charge to the till robbed us blind in front of our own eyes. We are today a nation of infuriated citizens that the people who robbed us blind were bailed out today at our expense. We are today a country of enraged citizens that the very people who robbed us are now in charge of the bailout disbursement. We are today a country of furious citizens that we will probably be electing the very same people who belied our trust to continue the same policies as if nothing happened.

We are today a country of wiser citizens who will hopefully make wiser choices and judgements in the future.
