Blagojevich: This is why we hate politicians
Recent events concerning the Illinois governors criminal behavior further point out why the public despises politicians. Rod Blagojevichs unfortunate choice of words did him in.

Sense of entitlement is ruining the country
Theres a huge difference between our current economic crisis and the Great Depression. In the 30s, people didnt wait for the government to bail them out. This was before the liberal-socialist revolution of the 60s. People in the 30s knew the only way to survive was with hard work. Today, both individuals and corporations not only feel entitled to the government bailing them out, they are outraged when it doesnt happen. Were all in for a wicked lesson in economic Darwinism, for only those with the ability to adapt and adjust to a new American economy and society will survive.

Auto bailout: Why the fuss?
Approximately 20 years ago, Lee Iacocca, who was then head of Chrysler, asked our government for a loan. It was given to him without the production going
on today, and not only did he repay it, but it was done before the due date. Perhaps I am missing something, but why is this loan different from the one in the past?
