Why is that when American Express gets behind, the government bails them out?

And when the American People get behind, American Express sends us nasty letters?

  • This did give me a good laugh because it is very true about ALL lenders. They seem to be lining up at the government bank for a handout. I am not fond of the bailouts at all. I think companies should be made to swallow some of their BIG benefit packages and be glad to get a paycheck like the rest of america. There is no pencil pusher in this whole wide world worth all those millions of dollars in benefits they reap each year. I say let them have paid holidays, 1 week paid vacation, no company benefits like a company card and spending account, etc. etc. Do you know that most company executives make more a year then the President of the USA???????
