Are You There George Orwell?

I don't do politics on this blog...just doesn't make sense. Besides if you look at my profile or have read some of my posts you can guess my political leanings but I came across this news story yesterday and it just blew me away. I thought I was cynical enough not to be surprised at anything that happens on either side of the political spectrum but this truly surprised and frightened me.

A business that declines government "help" should be applauded by the taxpayer. A business that accepts money from the government and wants to repay it with interest should be applauded by the taxpayer. What's wrong with this picture?

In this linked article, disregard the mention of any political names and parties. Concentrate on the facts and I ask you....regardless of your party affiliation or politics..is this a road we want to go down? I have searched the web for more information on this situation but I could find nothing beyond this article. I frankly hope it is inaccurate but I don't think so. Someone tell me I'm wrong!

Are you out there George? Tell me I'm wrong!

Thanks for visiting

I've read and enjoyed your blog for a long time. I did as you requested but when Fox News is involved, facts aren't always facts. I won't do dueling links with you.
Have a great day and I look forward to future travel/lifestyle posts.
