GM Bankrupt, New York Freezing, Obama Blowing our Money-Welcome to Summer!
In a not-so-surprising move today, GM filed bankruptcy. In an even more not-so-surprising event, the Dow is surging ahead and having a great day. At the time of this post (2:00 p.m. CST) the dow is up 235 points. But no worries, as you have probably heard the US Government is going to own 60% of the company when it emerges from bankruptcy, after giving it another 500000000 gazillion dollars to assist it in its restructuring.
Once again, the government saves the day. But wait, if the Dow going up after one of our biggest industries files bankruptcy isn’t weird enough, there’s more…
Much to the shagrin of Al Gore and his ilk, there is a freeze warning for New York today–yes TODAY! But wait, don’t say no to this post yet, there’s even more…
Our fiscally conservative President, only weeks after telling us all we need to “have skin in the game” and we need to “tighten our belts” and we all need to participate in giving more, decides to take Michelle out on a date. Not just any date though, a $24,000+ date. Yes, instead of catching a show in the Presidental box at the world-famous Kennedy center, he decides to get 3 planes, 2 helicopters, staff, press, limos and all and hike it to New York city for dinner and a Broadway show. One of the patrons in the restaurant allegedly overheard our President say something like “Let Them Eat Cake! HA HA HA HA HA.” Hmmmmm….
So let me be the first to welcome you to what will assuredly be a fantastic summer of fun, excitement and hypocrisy. I mean just look at Michelle…
She got so exicted for her rich night out that she forgot she was a fashion icon and grabbed a purse that matches Air Force One, but not her dress. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
Congrats GM, Dow, NY and of course, BHO for making the first day of our summer months weirder than the last 5 months.
