This Economy is Crazy

Here you have a story about how budget cuts are threatening to end Amber alerts and sex offender warnings – things that can save lives and are desperately needed then you have stories like this one:

where a bank begged the govt. for $8,000,000 to survive then blows $4,000,000 on Christmas staff parties. This second story is from England but the US has seen the same kind of audacity. Here is an example of American slaps in the face: AIG – http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601103&sid=ajC0ofGADFu0&refer=us , http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,426783,00.html , http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,438681,00.html , http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/WallStreet/story?id=6223972

That’s like reaching deep into your pockets because you feel bad for someone holding up a “Will work for food” sign and then watching them go into a liquor store with your money in their hand.
