    Sorry, but your link doesn't work, AND I'm tired of telling you to not post articles in their entirety. In addition, I don't recall even once you discussing anything you post onthis board. You just post an article and leave. That's called spamming and will not be tolerated. In other words, participate or your articles will be deleted from this point forward.

    Thanks,

    Gunny

    It's in the Guardian (left leaning newspaper). It's by Naomi Klein (author of No Logo). And it's not just the Bush admin that approved the bail out.

    Did you have a point to make, or are you content just to hang wallpaper?

    When you have a thought of your own, let me know.

    Now we have to wait until he s going to say that he was sorry about that, saying that he was sorry about Iraq because he used the wrong intelligence took him 4 years. I guess you have to wait another 4 years then.

    I like that analysis.

    I'm getting kind of tired of all the threatened cliffs, I say we jump already and start back at the bottom.

    Well, I probably don't mean it, but it sure does sound like the boy who cried wolf a lot.

    Foreigners often bitch we don't know about them, yet they write this drivel that shows they don't understand the US system.

    The opposition party (Democrats) control the purse strings with majorities in both houses, 'Bush' can't do ANYTHING they disapprove of.

    Really Brits, get a clue before trying to write about the USA.

    I've yet to see this discussed in the evening psudonews. Thanks.

    Interesting that the current administration's Treasury Dept is attempting an end around of congress in the hopes Obama shakes the money tree for them.

    Must be some bank merger bargains out there that absolutely must get done in order to save civilization.
