    Ask yourself why it was up.

    Because wall street is counting on a trillion dollar bail out.

    Not such great news if you ask me.

    The government had to bail out two huge companies, and today they strongly hinted that they’d bail out others . . . at taxpayers’ expense of course. It’s all part of a new approach that leaders in the White House and Congress are taking — it’s called socialism.

    Why is it terrible news. It is only up because we socialized the financial system. God that must tear you conservatives up!

    why wouldn't it be up? Your president just took a trillion taxpayer dollars to buy up the debt of some rich people.

    And you cons are still crying like little pussys that obama is going to raise taxes on the wealthist among us ? LOL.

    Are you going to pay for the bailout of bankers and CEOs? Or should wealthy people pay for their own bailout?

    Let me guess - you don't think rich people should pay for their own bailout, and you support McCain's plan to cut more taxes for the wealthiest among us.


    Do you even ask republican politicians to kiss you and buy you dinner, before they rape you?

    Good news for America is always bad news for Democrats. And vice versa.

    Is that what you do with the Demos before handing over your donations?

    Isn't it ironic? Eight years of Republican leadership have driven our economy to take drastic socialist measures? But given that the circumstances exist, the end result would be at the taxpayers expense one way or the other anyway, right? Maybe we can leverage something in our favor and even figure out a better solution, like making AIG provide health insurance coverage, as Jillian proposed earlier.

    Based on your post, I'm guessing you live outside the United States. This is certainly a sad time for America. Our Republic has been under attack for decades and it's just getting worse. Unfortunately, this will affect other countries which are free and there aren't that many in the world. Sad, very sad. BTW, where do you live?
