    I actually think that if a company takes the bailout, they've left themselves open to government interference, a bad idea indeed. However seems Obama has a broader plan in mind:

    Actually that would slow inflation at least.

    Actually the government is not supposed to co-op property, but get out of the way. Seriously wrong.

    Exactly.. It's so very unconstitutional.. somewhere in the Bill of Rights, it specifically prevents the federal government from taking private property... but, yeah, like this administration uses the Constitution for anymore than an asswipe.

    Also, kitty, inflation comes from expanding the money supply, not from anywhere else.

    the federal government does not have the power, nor the right to subvert private contracts which fall under the sovereignty of state laws.

    That is called a 'state of nature', good luck with that.

    I was not referring to 'regulations' on banking or other financial venues, that falls within the charge of government. However, they do not have the right and/or responsibility to tell people or corporations how to comport their lives.

    well, from what I understand, this is where the problem came with executives and stock holders even have complained.

    this is more complicated than what meets the eye and should be a change in regulating insiders stock and what they do with it....
    basically, the insiders have been playing a game that hurts their stock holders and company business, is simplist way of describing it....the way they have recently, within the las 10 years, structured their pay and bonuses with stock options is my understanding of it, so i wouldn't panic yet....on this....
