the Robber Barons in Comgress have either given or committed in excess of a Trillion Dollars to "solve" this problem. On the day Congress showed momentary courage and refused to pass "The Bribe" the stock market went down. Now after all this money, guess what? The stock market is below 9,000.

THese people have zero credibility.
Currently, a person can serve ONE two-year term in Congress, or one full term in the US Senate, and receive their "retirement" pension for LIFE. Also, their spouses get free lifetime unlimited medical insurance coverages as well. Who pays for all of this largesse?
Well, WE DO.
When we elect people to "office" their aspirations for more power usually take precedent over any true "representation" of the people, they fail to recognize, and we fail to reinforce that said elected "representatives" are our EMPLOYEES. Nothing more.
It is time for a new tapayer revolt, we need to fire all of them and start over, mandatory term limits, WE, the people, should vote on THIER salaries and benefits, etc.
If they know ther eis an actual consequnece to them voting stupidly, they might not be so callous with their Employer's money.

That's the problem. They have no plan.

They have appropriated all this money and they have no idea what to do with it.

The high level plan is to buy up all the assets, but there is no disclosure on what the value of these assets are. So they have no idea what price to pay the banks. If they give them too little, the banks still fail. If they give them too much, the whole thing turns into an even bigger ripoff of the American people.

Now the government is considering buying stakes in banks. Apparently buying up the toxic bank assets with the bailout money isn't enough. American Capitalism is receiving the black eye of it's life as the whole world watches. Plan? They're making it up as they go.

In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.

nobody there seems to understand the term free market-the only pundits I heard speak against the Bailout where Neil Cavuto who said, "It's possible the cure can be worse than the problem." and Glen Beck. They're right.

It's like me cutting my head off to prevent dying of cancer. It Works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am proud to be represented in the Senate by Jim DeMint - who did not vote for this trash.

I called his office and asked him to add a voice-vote amendment to the bill repealing the 1986 machinegun ban.

Then said he unto them, "But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one."

Some context for Luke 22:36
The "garment" mentioned is the cloak worn by everyone and used as the covering for sleeping. It was such an important accoutrement of basic living that it could not be kept overnight as security for a loan. Guess that shows the significance of having a sword, even if it meant sleeping cold.

Better to perish in the struggle for freedom than live to see defeat.
