General American sentiments and empathy concerning the kneejerk bailout plan.

The last time we saw legislation so ill-fitted to the ideals this amazing Constitutional Republic was when that most heinous piece of trash legislation called (ironically) “The Patriot Act” was cobbled together and dumped in representatives laps with no time for them to review the outrage contained therein. Nobody could not vote for something with that name.

It seems that capitalism is now without risk for those with the right “leverage”…


This was forwarded to me by a friend, I don’t know where it comes from, but I can understand where the sentiments behind it come from.

    I sure am glad that the bailout for the financial industry did not forget to help the Puerto Rican rum (runners) industry. Just immagine the horror, trying to face this economic re-valuation sober. Oh, wait… if the big wigs had not been drunk on something (power?) they would not have gotten into this mess in the first place.

    And now for a truely frightening thought…..The real problem is too much debt by too many people, governments, and companies. How many national leaders (political and other) have said “get out of debt”? The only one I have heard is Sara Pailin (sp?) What are the world leaders actually doing about this problem…finding ways for those that are already too far in debt to borrow MORE.

    The problem is we want it all and we want it now.

    Yeah, I have to agree. Nobody is blameless (except of course me!). Besides systemic greed and perverse incentives, the mindset of the average American leads us to be somewhat blasé about slipshod accounting, finance and business practices so long as we get what we want RIGHT THIS MINUTE…
