We don't need no damned regulations.
Did the Wall Street bankers need any?
Did the Gulf of Mexico oil drillers need any?
Did the West Virginia coal mine owner need any?

U.S. loses $1.3 billion in exiting Chrysler
NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- U.S. taxpayers likely lost $1.3 billion in the government bailout of Chrysler, the Treasury Department announced Thursday.

The government recently sold its remaining 6% stake in the company to Italian automaker Fiat, wrapping up the 2009 auto bailouts that were part of TARP.

Even though that means $1.3 billion will not be recovered from the bankrupt Old Chrysler, the Treasury called it a "major accomplishment."

In the 90's there was a faulty pipeline on the Flathead reservation. The oil company ignores repeated requests by the tribe to fix the problem. Once the tribe levied a $10,000 a day fine for every day the pipeline was not fixed they got very quick action! Too bad the federal government is not as proactive. Maybe it has something to do with those pesky campaign contributions?

You are a moron. TARP was put in place by Bush. Why aren't you sticking up for the right of oil companies to pollute rivers like the big business bitch you are?

Bush gave us $6.5 trillion in deficits all rubber stamped by
the congressional Republicans. We should worry about $1.3 billion?

Obama, with his stimulus plan and with Bush's
$700 billion TARP, probably saved American capitalism..

But let the mush-brained morons concern themselves with $1.3 billion.

Knuckleheads.

NO pipeline, high-tension lines, roads carrying potentially dangerous shipments of oil, chemicals, nuclear waste etc. should be within 100 miles of ANY national park.

This is an eco-crime, and the spill-pigs at Exxon need to be held ACCOUNTABLE. Jail time for their execs would be a good start.
