Their just waiting for the US treasury open up the piggy bank. You don't have to be a member of any exclusive country club to know that.
    MY supplier hasn't cut me off and nobody I know has had any credit issues.

    Btw, have you seen the pork in this new version of the bill. Holy crap!!
    95 million for the rum industry. WTF? Millions to NASCAR. WTF? Wooden arrows for children? WTF?
    What pisses me off is we already voted NO! And what do they do? Bring back an even worse version. Our government working for us.
    Everything aside, This move is the most obvious and largest step toward socialism this country has ever proposed. We've been making small steps toward it for many years but this is most blatant and You and I have to foot the bill. That's BS. Let em fail. If something major is on the horizon, so be it. Maybe this country needs a swift kick in the *** to get things back on track.
    I color coded my replies:

    -Yeah, WTF sums it...NO debate, it's so bizarre I have to ask what the rationale is?

    - I truly hope your wrong. (I have to think you hope so too)

    - I agree, partly wondering if there isn't a strange irony in the fact that greed & unchecked capitalism has lead us down this road. (?)

    - Though I'm sure it's a crock, taxpayers are (somehow) s'posed to reap the benefits of any gained interest on the loans the gov takes over.

    - And...finally in response to your last:

    Part of me almost wonders if maybe the young generation deserves to go through it...like a wake up call.

      The sad part is that probably every one of us agrees this bill is worse than the original; yet this is the one that passed. I'm not for this bailout, but I find that this pork just adds insult to injury. I am pretty sure none of the regular people for the bailout want the extra $150B of spending either. Yet that is the BS that it took to get it passed.

        Irony - spending special interest "pork" money to get us out of a mess that was probably created in large part by special interest.

        Legal bribing.

          Statistically, only 13% of the country votes.

          I'm gonna take a stab that's because most don't care to wager on which crook should be nominated.

          I'll stop on that, you might have been right about breaching the topic of politics on this subject.

            I still think the money would have been better spent on building 400 NASA space shuttles

            So what do we do with 400 space shuttles

            Nearly one for each and every member of Congress
