    Backyard thugs in stripe suits, are sweating everyday to push through the biggest robbery in world history to bail out the Wall Street Criminals who created this economic apocalypse in the first place, but this time...their luck has run out, It's time to burn this capitalistic symbol to the ground, with it's entire zoo keepers and crook traders.

    This is the financial equivalent of September 11, to push their "Patriot Act" gestapo laws to take a last big bite of the taxpayers money, brought to you by the same thugs, who gave you 9/11 while you were watching TV with your mouth open and sleeping with one eye closed.

    They said providing healthcare for 9 million children, costing $6 billion a year, was too expensive, but there’s evidently no sum of money large enough that will save these Wall Street pigs, who have already fleeced the taxpayers billions of dollars with their fannie and freddie clown gimmick. If Wall Street is not destroyed, forget about any money for environmental protection, to counter global warming, for education, for national healthcare, to rebuild our decaying infrastructure, for alternative energy, as the next global generation will still be paying for this massive conjob.

    With Bear Stearns, Fannie and Freddie, AIG, Lehman Thugs, JP Morgan, Citibank trying to extort a bailout for their intentional crime, well in excess of $2.3 trillion will be distributed from the poor, workers and middle class to the scum floating on top.

    Who in their right mind would want to reward these low life parasites. It’s socialism for the rich thugs and dog-eat-dog capitalism for the rest of us. Burn their Wall Street Temple.

    This whole mess gives lie to the free market. The Feds are propping up stock prices, directing buyouts, subsidizing crooks and swindlers who already made a killing off the mortgage bubble.

    All in all, hearsay, hyperbole, exaggeration, no evidence, no facts, no support, a few lies, some hysterics, and the only thing correct was that this was socialism to give tax payer money to try and solve an issue.

    So we're against the bail out. Well good. Everyone is against the bail out. The only problem is, you are against for unsupportable left wing-looniness, we're against it for it being socialism, that you otherwise would promote.

    More astounding logic. Bush planned the whole thing right? So he could make a power grab, just to leave office.... way to think that through.

    If Wall Street is destroyed you can go ahead and forget about most of the economy.

    This is interesting. I notice you ignore the tax burden shouldered by the rich in your assessment. The fact is this, rich people and business pay the majority of taxes, thus rich people and business are shouldering the majority of this burden.

    1. The era of the United States as a “the world’s only superpower” is ending.
    The United States economy has not been this bad since the Great Depression. The rulers of the US hoped to retain global power militarily, through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as the country’s raw economic superiority slipped. But these wars cannot be won: opposition among the occupied populations, and growing dissent within the military, prevent any victory on US terms even as the death toll climbs.

    2. Beginning during the 1970s, manufacturing stalled, while government and investors focused on the financial sector: banks, real estate, and insurance.
    Increasing competition, strong unions, and victories of the Black freedom movement had begun to limit the profits made by US corporations and threaten the power of the ruling class. In response, employers shifted good-paying manufacturing jobs overseas and to nonunionized areas of the USA. As wages stagnated, and workers’ purchasing power declined, workers maintained a precarious hold on our livelihood through working longer hours, sending more household members to work, and buying extensively on credit. The globalization of US capitalism and growth of credit both fueled the financial sector, which provided fluid economic resources that could be quickly moved and re-invested – unlike a physical investment such as a factory or railroad.

    3. In 2008, years of government policies favoring the rich to play poker games provoked instability and sparked collapse of major Wall Street institutions.

    The "bailout" was to prevent another Great Depression, which just like this crisis, was caused by government meddling in the economy, not wall street. Get a clue, megabrain. :rolleyes:

    What will an economy, the world's biggest debtor, already under strains of a 7-10% actual inflation rate (vs the 3% marked down liar rate of the Fed) and where consumerism alone makes up 70% of the economy, do?

    Well the usual Fed policy of making more money sure as hell won't help the situation. Why did the Fed not tell the American Taxpayers that they, together with their Economic Hitmen were tinkling with the massive Housing Scam to fleece off with Billions of Dollars, shift this Money off-shore and then declare bankruptcy, and ask for monetary mercy by scamming more as a Bial-Out.

    Question : Who is this Barnanke & Thugs Inc. trying to fool.

    Most likely continue to lead the charge in innovation and technology highly advanced tech exports.

    The FED did tell you that. Remember when Clinton was in office and they came out and drastically changed policy. I remember it well. Maybe you should have paid attention.

    This is just the latest in a series of events that seem to indicate a move towards fascism in the U.S. by financial and political elites.

    Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, founder of the fascist model, famously declared that “Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.” Following in his footsteps, the fascists of today apparently aim to handover complete control of the government to private corporations and financial interests, by cracking down on dissent and civil liberties, cutting all social programs, stirring up racism to divide the public, and putting the country on a permanent war footing. This will all be much easier to accomplish once the banking industry has been allowed to pillage the US Treasury and put the entire country in debt to Wall St.

    No one cracks down on dissent and civil liberties. What rights have you personally lost lately? I would wager none.

    Seems to be with the recent bailout "Wall Street" is now in debt to/owned by the country, not the other way around.

    If Bernanke was honest…

    He would announce to the American people that they’re being lied to every time they are told that the mission of the fed is to fight inflation. He would confess that the fed is in reality the primary engine of inflation and that’s its main reason for existence is to monetize the federal deficit, essentially a corrupt wealth transfer device from the American people to politicians and their politically well-connected buddies in Washington. He would confess that most of the antics at the fed were smoke and mirror attempts to mask the inflationary mischief it was causing.
