"The public transportation here are paying their bus drives $90K a year?!?!!? "

I have one question. Would you like to make 90K a year? I bet you would.

Unfortunately for you Zero was personally involved in the mortage fiasco. He was on a team of lawyers that forced Citibank to give bad loans. Ever heard of the Community Reinvestment Act. For all his faults Bush at least tried to rein some of this stuff in. So did McCain. Ouir troubles are a direct result of the idiot policies that Obama supported and voted for. So, no, Obama gets no pass.

It's really time for you liberals to stop blaming others for your policies.

Hell those policies started as far back as the Clinton era. It just took time to screw up everything. Especially NAFTA, which drove more businesses out of the country than any Union every organized.

Clinton's legacy:

Revisiting NAFTA: Still not working for North America’s workers

Actually the CRA started under Carter but no matter. Obama did his best to forward it.

People always get paid what they are worth. I don't get pissed at what anyone makes. I'm happy for them. If the job is so great, go be a bus driver and make 90K then. It will probably take you 40 years to get there, but leaving out half the story is half the fun!

Just because I'm Black, it doesn't mean I'm a liberal. You have got to stop stereotyping me.
