Another truckload over the edge…

Good morning, Netizens...

We can add another piece to this David Horsey cartoon which aptly depicts the bailout of the American economy, as Freddie Mac Acting Chief Financial Officer David Kellermann committed suicide yesterday. If you look somewhere down at the bottom of the cliff over which the dump truck has been dumping our taxpayer dollars, you may see his body there, along with various other dignitaries that have bit the bullet rather than face their ignominy, if not the disgrace of having led us to this place in history.

The real question, which so haunts me, is how much longer will the government, our government, continue tossing good money after bad over the cliff before someone, with the cajones to do so, says, “ENOUGH ALREADY!” and stops the show?

Of course, this begs the question who really runs the economy of this country: the United Auto Workers or the people? I've gotten into deep trouble for asking harder questions than that, but it does seem to be a logical and thus important question to me.
