This is crazy. We give them money to get them out of financial trouble and they turn around and buy a jet. I say it is time we pull the money back from them and tell them to go belly up.

It makes me wonder what exactly the other financial institutions and the auto industry are doing with their bail out money.

It makes me sick TRD, because most of it is going right into the pockets of the suits that caused this mess.

These freaking people have no sense of right or wrong. So they got caught with the plane, glad they did.

But how many CEO and other white hat multi million $ "bonuses" have already been deposited in off shore banks?

Absolute truth. They've already taken the whole world on a ride ... and the ride has only just started.


Gonna get much bumpier down the road .... fast.

So they canceled the purchase once the public found out about it. In the reports yesterday, they were saying they would lose millions if they canceled the purchase. Now, we find out that yes, they would lose the deposit but would most likely get it back once another buyer is found.

More and more, I hate these damn banks.

These CEOs and corporate execs seem to have an addiction to money, greed, and extravagance.

I am also sure we will hear more.

Not to mention this jet is made in France. CitiBank isn't even helping the American economy.

As I said all along, it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder.
