    Did this bill fix anything or did it just put a band aid on a cut that will shortly began to bleed again?

    I think this was another Chicken Little ploy and we all got taken to the cleaners again.

    Let's wait and see.

    Bandaid on a gushing aorta. Will not solve it. This bubble should have been allowed to burst naturally. In a couple of years we may be on the brink of collapse. This bill should have failed.

    Don'T worry..they are well prepared for the next crisis



    According to a report published Monday by the Washington Post, the Pentagon has developed its first ever war plans for operations within the continental United States, in which terrorist attacks would be used as the justification for imposing martial law on cities, regions or the entire country.
    The front-page article cites sources working at the headquarters of the military’s Northern Command (Northcom), located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The plans themselves are classified, but “officers who drafted the plans” gave details to Post reporter Bradley Graham, who was recently given a tour of Northcom headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base. The article thus appears to be a deliberate leak conducted for the purpose of accustoming the American population to the prospect of military rule.

    According to Graham, “the new plans provide for what several senior officers acknowledged is the likelihood that the military will have to take charge in some situations, especially when dealing with mass-casualty attacks that could quickly overwhelm civilian resources.”

    The Post account declares, “The war plans represent a historic shift for the Pentagon, which has been reluctant to become involved in domestic operations and is legally constrained from engaging in law enforcement.”

    We ? You mean the Fed. The Fed isn't we--it's our friendly banker.
