And no, I’m not referring to an upset stomach, but this almost qualifies for a triple dose of Pepto, Rolaids, and Pepsid. If you are like me, you are watching your retirement funds losing over 25% of their value, and there’s almost nothing you can do about it.
One week after the Congress passed and the President signed the $700 Billion bailout bill to the credit markets, the economy of the world is tanking faster than a rock on steroids. Wasn’t this emergency bill supposed to avert this crisis?
Is anyone else out there thinking that we just got shafted again?
If anything, this continued fiasco should tell all of us that our elected officials don’t know what they are doing except to find ways of extracting more money out of us on the pretense of "helping" us. If this is helping, I would hate to think of what these clowns would do to hurt us!
Obviously, those who were elected are obviously unqualified to lead our country much less the financial sector. I advocate that we pass the hurt on to them – vote for whomever is not in office, i.e., do not re-elect anyone!! Register your dissatisfaction via the ballot box and vote these bozos out! Perhaps some new people will take it to heart and do a better job.
