Remember when Soon-To-Be Ex Speaker Pelosi promised to “drain the swamp” of corruption and I cynically said that all that meant was she wanted to fill it up again with Democrat corruption?
Well, here are the latest alligators to add to the swamp.
Alligator #1: General Electric, owner of NBC (for now), with a CEO who is on a Board of Economic Advisors (with the AFL-CIO Union Boss and others) to the President.
Alligator #2: Government Motors (GM), bailed out by taxpayers. Given millions of the money to the Union and to develop “green” technology. The purveyors of the “green” wonder the Chevy Volt- The pseudo “all electric” car.
They are having a love child called Corruption. 🙂
It works like this: GE has promised to buy $500 Million dollars of Chevy Volts from GM, thus raising the sales figures for this “hot new car”.
17% of GM is owned by the UAW now because the government that took them over said so, a union fused at the hip of the Democrat party since before I was born. So a little payback will undoubtedly leak back to Obama for his 2012 re-election campaign.
Just like there cousin the August bailout of Teacher’s Unions.
Then GE is granted a $2 BILLION contract while Obama is in India for airplane engines.
Plus GE is going to be at the forefront of the “green” light bulbs that will be mandatory in a few years because the incandescent light bulb will be banned.
So you buy $500 Million dollars of electric cars, get $2 Billion in airplane sales. And Obama gets a union kickback in the process.
But don’t worry, Liberals and Democrats are anti-Big Business. They hate Corporate America. The greedy, capitalistic pigs!
I have come to the conclusion that they hate just hate Corporate America that doesn’t kickback ,or cowtow to THEM, or they have a Union that votes and supports them.
Those are good Businesses.
After all, Obama did bailout GM to save the UAW not to save GM.
The Stimulus was designed to save state workers’ pension funds or at least delay the inevitable. Those were the jobs worth saving and creating. 🙂
Unions are good.Government Unions are great.
“Green” Jobs are the best. (Both kinds of green, by the way) 🙂
So what if it’s corrupt. So what if it’s quid pro quo.
Kickbacks are good if you’re a Democrat.
As long as you’re the beneficiary. Otherwise, it’s just corrupt. 🙂
At least they aren’t Republicans, because that would be bad. 🙂
So corruption is good as long as you benefit and you can control it.
Now that’s “draining the swamp”.
And “rich” people are good as long as they are liberals, Like George Soros.
And “big business” is ok as long as they kick it it back to the Democrats,like GE.
And Unions are always much better than non-unions because of their overwhelming support for Democrats.
And Government Unions are the best, because they are dependent on the government for their jobs so they are loyal to a fault and will vote for self-preservation no matter what.
So corruption is good for Liberals, as long as they control them.
Isn’t that special! 🙂
Meanwhile, your average joe schmo who works in the private sector and pays taxes is a “moron”, and “idiot”, a “domestic terrorist”, a “racist”, “stupid” if they object.
