This comparison does not work for our country's economic situation today. The internet changed all that by having observers everywhere all the time.

We do not have price controls for the small businesses. Remember Nixon? And, Nixon did the right thing.

I think $700BB+ should have gone for infrastructure and $50BB should have gone to the banks. I actually think the banks should have been left to their own devices without any bailout. If they collapsed, then so be it, if they survived ... that's the capitalistic way.

Well said. We can't keep screwing our own children by spending money borrowed from China as though it were growing on trees. If America knew how Pelosi spent the $750 Billion plus Stimulus their would be rioting in the streets (except in the "blue states".
