Reminds me of my teenage daughter... ask me for money for one thing and turn around and spend it on something else. Best part, we can't challenge Paulson, because good ole Barney Frank put a clause in the legislation that states no one, including congress, can challenge, question or otherwise inquire about the spending of the $700B TARP program.

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( http://goo.gl/44kQUQ ) too my friends and family.
