The Credit Card Companies Were Right
OK, I was wrong about this bankruptcy bill that was dictated by the banking and credit industries. When the credit card johns came around waving millions of dollars, and their Congressional Harem (formerly known as senators and representatives) duly bent over and spread their cheeks, I was skeptical.
But now I realize they were right; there are some absolutely immoral, useless, blight-on-the-gene-pool deadbeats out there. And this new bankruptcy bill is exactly what we need to crack down on these lowlifes.
This is just too sleazy and underhanded for words. Who could imagine United Airlines actually being shameless and slippery enough to try declaring bankruptcy in order to get out of paying for their employees’ pensions. Every time you think our Feudal Lords couldn’t possibly sink any lower, some corporate sleazebag comes along and sinks even lower.
I’m sure this is exactly what the banking and credit industries had in mind when they pushed for this bankruptcy bill. Thanks to this new law, United Airlines employees will be able to keep their pensions after all. The top executives of United Airlines thought they could wriggle out of their responsibilities, but the banking industry has put them in their place. Nice try, Dickheads!
Again, I feel really guilty about all the names I’ve called the banking and credit industries in earlier posts. On behalf of all the grateful United Airlines employees, I think we should all……uhh……hm……wait, this can’t be right……What?!? The bankruptcy bill doesn’t apply in this case??!!??? But…
OK, this, this doesn’t make any sense. So they’re saying, uh, let me get this straight now…a family (or single person) cannot declare bankruptcy — no ifs, ands or buts. You lost your job? Too bad. You’re a victim of identity theft? Get over it. Staggering medical bills? Get a grip.
Oh, you’re a CEO with a 7-figure salary and you don’t want to sacrifice any of it for your lowly workforce? Awww, we understand. Now dry your eyes; everything’s gonna be just fine. You can declare bankruptcy and still go on about your business, and you don’t have to spend any more money on pensions for that sniveling workforce. Fuck ‘em if they can’t take a joke.
