Caught that on the news last night

And glad to know that I am not the only person disgusted by all of it.

The only good news to come of any of this mess is that they were able to hook the bailout to Mental Health Parity. THAT is something that has really been needed for some time.

I mean it is absolutely atrocious that thes ethings happen, AIG is now majority owned by the US governmment, meaning 'you' the tax payer.

Did yuo go and have and ncie week long holiday at a spa too?

Sick little 'kers need a swift boot. Yet another great effort by the Bush clan to see the rich folks through hard times and screw teh rest of America while smiling that classic "f'k you very much' smile of his.

Needs a swift kick in the teeth, I'll happily do it if someone coughs up airfare.

Now THAT would be a fun TR discussion, "Oz finally gets his shot at Bush." I can only dream.
