The Bailout

As most of you know, Natalie loves staying on top of CurrentEvents. A few weeks ago, I heard her singing to her dolls, "NObama, NObama, I doesn't like NObama" in a catchy little tune. She's obviously been listening to all the talk about the disastrous, obviously partisan stimulus package. We were upstairs the other night, and she came running out of her room holding her silver piggy bank, which was a baby gift from one of T's cousins.


"Here, Mommy." she said, holding it out to me. "You can put your monies in here so Obama doesn't get it."


So young, yet so wise.


Why didn't he nominate Natalie to a cabinet position? She certainly doesn't have the tax problems that Tom Daschle, Nancy Killefer do. And Chris Dodd, Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, has had six months to produce his mortgage papers to no effect.


Natalie's solution to the bailout? Keep your own money in your (piggy) bank and let the dimwits who took out mortgages for more than they could afford fail in their investments; otherwise we'll soon be bailing out toddlers who took spills off of tricycles they were too young to ride, kindergartners who took loans from bullies for lunch money that they can't repay. The list goes on.


I think I'll write my Senator (little good that will do) and let him know just how outraged I am at this ridiculous pork package they're ramming through. I look at my precious girls' faces and it breaks my heart that these morons in Washington are going to make my children and their children pay for these mistakes. Thanks a lot.

Ditto. How the voice of a little 3 year old can be so RIGHT. Give Natalie a big hug and kiss from me and keep up the good work. She's such a sweetheart to look after her families financial situation.
