President Obama Acknowledges Wall Street and Washington Douche-baggery

Let’s never forget: Millions of Americans who work hard and play by the rules every day deserve a Government and a financial system that do the same. – President Obama

“Let’s never forget: Millions of Americans who work hard and play by the rules every day deserve a Government and a financial system that do the same. It’s time to apply the same rules from top to bottom: No bailouts, no handouts, and no copouts. An America built to last insists on responsibility from everybody.” – President Obama

thebrackpipe comment:  I’m fully behind Obama on this one. Was shared responsibility ever a value in this country. Just look at our government and our corporations (especially the financial industry)… for the most part, it’s a bunch of folks just trying to “get theirs” and willing to stop at nothing to do just that.

What happened to being grateful? For mutual respect? For THANKING a country that provides amazing freedom and opportunities by paying taxes to help it grow further? Instead, we have corporate crooks, financial crooks and industry lobbyists (the definition of crooks) and government crooks and… well, here we are.
