The House of Morons – US House Fails to Save Our Economy!

The US House where the Vote Failed!

The US House where the Vote Failed!

I need to take a moment to vent my frustration regarding the failed vote for the US bailout plan today (Monday Sept 29, 2008). I have always had faith in our government that in the end, they would do the right thing. Well, today they didn’t. They let the entire United States and the World down. While they were fighting about a 700 billion bailout package, the market tanked. And because of the drop in the market, instead of the taxpayers shouldering a 700 billion bailout package, they were hit with a LOSS of 1 Trillion dollars. That’s right ONE TRILLION DOLLARS! This effects the elderly, the middle class, the poor, everyone in the United States. 

 

Here is what the Congress did today. They had a train wreck and they showed up at the scene. There were people hurt and dying and instead of treating the people, they decided to let them all die and they walked away. What the Congress in effect did today was kill the economy world wide. What a bunch of Morons. Do they need to get a good slap up the side of the head? What is wrong with them?

What you need to do first thing on Tuesday morning is call your congress person and tell them to get it together and pass the bailout before there is nothing left to bailout! Tell them if they don’t pass it, then you won’t vote for them ever again.

This has really, really, really upset me, because it is going to hurt the very people these congressmen say they want to help. They just DON’T GET IT!!!!!    

GET IT DONE MORONS! AND GET IT DONE NOW!!

$15 to check a bag on your flight? What’s Wrong with this picture?

Posted by thetraveldoctor on May 21, 2008


This is getting ridiculous. American Airlines stated today, May 21, 2008 that it is going to start charging $15 to let you check one bag on your flight. How nuts is that. First they tell you that you cannot carryon items and they make you put them in your checked baggage. Now they tell you that you have to pay to check that bag that you can’t carryon! What is wrong with these airlines. If you need to increase your fares to cover your costs, then raise the fare, but don’t nickel and dime the customers to death. This is an insult to the intelligence of the everyday traveler.

I sure hope that no other airline follows American’s lead.  Let me know what you think.

Harrah’s Entertainment to Change Name

Posted by thetraveldoctor on April 28, 2008


Found this out yesterday that Harrah’s Entertainment is changing its name to Caesars Entertainment Corp. that is if the regulatory commissions grant the approval. Caesars Entertainment Corp will have three primary casino brands, Caesars, Harrah’s & Horseshoe Casinos. Don’t know why they are changing the corp name, but I guess that the Caesars name is a little more classy than Harrahs.
