    The more I learn, the more I realize I underestimated the duplicity and sheer arrogance of Obama.

    Obama Wants a GM Bailout Tax on Bank and Insurance Customers

    Watch as the usual suspects defend Obama from my racist attack.

    Those companies are just going to turn right around and bone their customers. This is a shadow tax on consumers.

    Wow. The insanity is astounding...


    How much longer are we going to ensure that we award the irresponsible at the cost of the responsible. Does no one see what the outcome of such an inane concept brings us??

    Good idea. I would have preferred some arrests and seizures but at least this is something.

    Insisting that banksters set up an insurance policy against the kind of meltdown that they created in 2008 seems to like a good idea to me.

    Apparently you do not really understand the nature of the mess the Banksters made of the economy.

    Had the FED and TReasury not taken extraordinary steps thery took to bail them out, our economy's banking system would have melted down entirely. There would NOT have been an orderly retreat with bankruptsies and organizations going into recievership, there would have been bank after bank going belly up.

    Had the government not stepped in to save them, there wouldn't be a bank open in this nation.

    You need to stop reading BLOGS from dubious sources and start reading some books written by the people who were involved in that mess.

    It's the sort of thing that gets taken for granted. We had a real disaster in this country that was "staggered" in part by bold federal action. There were no bread lines or an extremely seriously crash in employment. While bad..it's nothing like what the country experienced during the great depression..but that was waiting in the wings.

    It's sorta like the guy who can drink water from the tap..but never makes the connection to a plethora of departments working tirelessly to keep the water clean.

    so... Obama wants to penalize corporations for taking TARP funds and doing with those funds exactly what they were supposed to do.

    Fucking idiot.

    You think it is a good idea to tax punish people that were responsible because other people were irresponsible? Why don't we just lock everyone up and stop worrying about guilt or innocence? It would certainly make things easier.
