    I have come to the conclusion after much thought, on this bailout, that with the passage of this bill our country will fundamentally change from a republic to a government controlled socialist democracy. It's truly a sad day in American history for us all, from this point forward, the Govt. will be in the mortgage, banking, and insurance business. No more will responsibility be looked upon as value to be cherished, a person that pay's their bill's and works hard to buy a home, and see to it that their children have a better life than they did are made meaningless by a bill that say's it's okay not to pay your mortgage, your fellow American that pay's theirs will pay it for you. It validates the people on Wall Street that made millions at the expense of bad business decisions by throwing them a life life. It say's, don't worry if your a bad business man, the American people will pay for your mistakes. So who's to blame you ask? Well after much thought on the matter, I have come to the conclusion WE ARE!!. We are because, we voted for ALL those in congress and the White House for the last 35 years that have looked the other way, and accepted Millions from these companies, in the form of PAC donations, free rides, etc. We continued to Vote for these people who were to look after out interest. both DEMOCRAT and REPUBLICAN!! However now these same people are telling us, it's okay, because, now Mr./Ms. American we are going to take 700 Billion of your money to bail out all these people.If they really wanted to send a message, then what they should do is tell the people on Wall Street there is a thing called bankruptcy in this country, and to the mortgage holders its called the same thing.

    I really have come to the conclusion that this bail out is a very BAD idea. So the economy suffers in the short term, so be it. However, whos next in line? The Airlines, Retail Stores, Starbucks? I mean where does this crap end? What happened to when you made a bad business decision you went bankrupt. Anyone ever hear of Eastern Airlines? giant airline , operated for years went down the crapper. I personally don't care what party anyone belongs to on this one, this bailout is marking a shift a big SHIFT in the way out government operates and I'm frankly surprised people don't see it. The funny thing is, in congress they are already in line to add pork to this bill, for healthcare, roads, and little pet projects. So no way I want to support this bill. I liked the post though, thank you

    You know Willow, I have never said that this mess is the sole responsibility of the democrats, but I can tell you this it damn sure isn't the sole responsibility of my party (republicans) as well. To me it's rather two-faced for any candidate to stand up there and point fingers at the other and act as if they have always been for the little guy while knee deep in this mess like the rest of them. So what are we left with now? we are left with this massive bill that wants to bless those that have been "irresponsible" rather than do their jobs and regulate. It allows people the ability to run to congress each time they make bad financial decisions rather than bankruptcy court where they belong.

    Only a trillion einstein.. 2 trillion is way out of the ballpark.. try picking up the paper and give it a read... seems that you have an issue with both comprehension and the facts...
