I cringe to think that by Monday we will have saddled ourselves with another near-trillion dollars in national debt. Have you noticed that now the auto industry, credit card issuers, and street hot dog vendors are clamoring for a piece of the bailout? While I applaud John McCain for standing up to the president and others who insist that government must keep business from drowning, I believe that Bush,
his party the Dems, Sec. Paulson and the Great Grasshopper Conspiracy will win. At least in the short term.
You're not familiar with the Ant and the Grasshopper fable, 2008 version? Let Michelle Malkin introduce you:
With what looks like imminent passage of the Mother of All Bailouts (following on the heels of a year's worth of government-funded rescues of private homeowners, lenders, insurers and automakers), Washington has turned Aesop's famous fable about prudence and hard work on its head. The time is ripe for a revised 2008 edition of "The Ant and the Grasshopper:"Read the fable. There will be a test.
