Arrogance -

It was always obvious that the Bush family had no ability to understand the financial choices, and difficulties of the average American. McCain showed a similar disdain for the economic facts of life for most Americans. Just move in to one of your other homes if you lose one or it is destroyed. Marie Antoinette looks like a saint in comparison with Bush's comment that if you can't afford medical insurance, you can go to the emergency room. I thought I couldn't be surprised or shocked by these goof-balls, but reading that the chief executives of the Big Three flew to Washington D.C. on a corporate jet after their criminal behavior in the mis-management of these car companies is beyond mind-boggling. They won't even see the stark facts now.

There are 24 daily nonstop flights from Detroit to the Washington area, yet Richard Wagoner, Alan Mutally, and Robert Nardelli arrive on a corporate jet to ask for a hand-out that they say they deserve. They also feel they have done nothing wrong. It is difficult to understand a country that could produce, and allow to reproduce, people so out of touch with reality. I remember when Ronald Reagan released people from mental institutions in CA. Problem solved, he said. There are no mentally ill people here, and perhaps in comparison to his own disturbed thought process, or lack thereof, there was some truth in that, but I think we need those institutions back so we can put those whose ego maladjustment is such that they are deluded enough to think they are god, in a place where they belong.

Ronald Reagan's dissolving the mental health care system when he was governor of CA led to the homeless problems we still endure today.
