Let’s go behind the curtain of the puppetmasters who are pulling the strings of their two puppets. Let me explain it in NFL terms for Joe Sixpack . The Federal Reserve is like the NFL who sets the rules for the game. The NFC represents one party, the AFC represents the other. Though they play against each other, they both play for the Federal Reserve/NFL. Both parties read out of the same playbook:“50% of my friends are for the bailout, 50% of my friends are against the bailout and I stand with my friends.” One party is funded by Muslim/terrorists, the other by Mafia/liquor but all their money comes through the Federal Reserve! Its win/win for the Fed/NFL. Win/lose for one side but all loss for the American people b/c the Fed prints fiat (unbacked) currency to keep the game going, resulting in inflation. Now history repeats itself like it did in Germany with the Weimar Republic, with both parties and Americans in general looking for a savior to fix it. Go to thenextstrike.com .

Herb Sandler is right, it was Wachovia's stupid management and egomaniac Ken Thompson who overpaid for his company. As a former Wachovia employee, I could not do any type of equity loan or line of credit if a World Savings mortgage was in first position. That was Wachovia policy, yet these idiots thought it was a good idea to buy a company whose loans we would not take second position to. Ken Thompson and the Board of Directors of Wachovia should be indicted!!
