    Here it IS, folks!!!

    Part 1 of a GREAT documentary (shown earlier, this evening, on PBS), on the timeline of The MELTDOWN!!!!!

    It starts-out with a group o' young, 20-something "cowboys" (with J.P. Morgan), who came-up with a plan to share credit-risks....with other banks.....that SNOWBALLED!!!

    Part 2 ends with the meeting John McCain called....to deal with an all-too-apparent Wall Street IMPLOSION....while he suspended his Presidential campaign.

    Shortly after the meeting begins, Presidential-nominee Barack Obama TOOK-OVER.....eventually, President George Bush RUNS-OUTTA-THE-ROOM....and, Presidential-nominee John McCain proceeds to utterly MELT-DOWN!!!!

    .....And, the Tea Party folks are still blaming Blacks, who took-out loans they couldn't afford.

    I watched it. Not how it went down. But your spin has pinache.
    Let's do a storyboard and take it to Hollywood.
