    I'm listening to Fox & CNN on XM, and one would think that the Earth will surely plummet into Sun if this bailout doesn't pass. I've never been much of a conspiracy theorist but this is like that scene from "V is for Vendetta".

    Show them why we need a bail-out !!!"


    Am I being too paranoid or not paranoid enough?

    I was thinking sort of along the same lines...except I don't see CNN really selling it too hard. But of course I started thinking exactly how much they have at stake...and what WOULD happen to CNN and the rest if the market collapses?

    The whole thing seems like a scene from "V for Vendetta."

    It also has come to affect the stock market if anyone saw the numbers today, I was watching when it began to freefall when the people on Wall Street realized this wasn't going to pass.

    The late George Carlin is 110% correct on his take of things.

    George Carlin was NOT an economic guru, dude. Really. Nor was he the Messiah. He isn't the ultimate authority on every single topic in the world.

    You really need to get over him. He's dead. Find another idol.

    Follow the money, dude. Who's talking? Who pays their salary? Any vested interest in a bail out from them?

    Always follow the leash back to the wallet.

    We are in for a power tussle around here...

    Did I say he was an economic guru? No

    Did I say he was the messiah? No (Ironically he was an atheist)

    Did I say he was the ultimate authority on every topic? No

    But tell me where the hell he is wrong here MichelleAnn? Does he say something in this video that hurts your little psycho feelings?

    Also notice how he predicts about Social Security and Wall Street.

    I'm not wrong, but we all know you hate for me to be right.

    He was however, incredibly observant, and he never hesitated to call 'bullshit' on either side of the aisle.

    R.I.P. Mr. Carlin.

    Couldn't agree more Joe.

    If you watch the video, he is 110% right about what happens especially around 5 mins into it about what is going on currently.

    As I asked MichelleAnn, look at the video holeinthehead and tell me where he's wrong.

    He is 110% right and even predicted what is going to happen.

    This is what the OP was wondering if he was paranoid about. He isn't paranoid.
