We should not be bailing out banks, Insurance companies or car dealers or nobody with taxpayer money. Its taking from the poor and giving too the rich.

FBI planning background checks and security profiling

for future professional sports games Joe Biden attends. Enjoy the article. Sure guess Joe Biden will not be throwing out any opening season balls anytime soon. Hmmm.... that makes me think we may have to hear Rosanne Barr sing the national anthem or some other screaching big mouthed American Idol winner!

Guess the FBI better do the same for Barrack Odor so certain groups do not think white man is getting favored!

To our Senators and Representatives the calls to them were like 50 against and 1 for the 700$ Billiion dollar Bailout package, but the Congress still passed it anyway. I don't get it?

It is the responsibility of the Fed Gov't to provide a stable currency and confidence in the banking system. This kind "ballout" is not a new thing. It happened in the US in 1907, FDR did it in 1933 and in Sweden in 1993. It works, but it's painful.

For the banks, it's not a bailout. The Gov't bought senior preferred stock with a 5% dividend, that goes to 9% in 5 years. The Gov't got a very good deal. Wish I could buy in.

Bailout of AIG is a tough call. AIG is a huge life insurance company. Do you want ordinary people to loose the life insurance money.

Bailout of businesses like GM is too much. Doing this becomes a Gov't attempt to stop a recession. The Gov't can't stop a recession, they happen.

This makes it clear to me why no bailout money should be appropriated by this congress...

Congress is not resposible with Tax Payer Money

In spite of the overwhelming majority of Americans who told their elected officials, "NO" .
Congress and the Senate did it anyway.

How did that happen?
Why do we let in happen?
Most of those same people were re-elected.
Tells me that American's would much rather post opinions on a website than be involved in their own system of government.

Our government does not represent the people. Haven't you figured this out??? They represent the people who donated to their campaigns, you know those corporate donors.

There are only 2 things that will change our current government. One is a third party. The other is total collapse of our government and society. I fear the second is mostly likely to happen.

Ten-four on that! The two party system is too well established and powerful (they take turns screwing the public) to give a third party a chance. Plus, the public is gullible enough to vote for the party that promises the most.(and fails to deliver after being sworn-in to office)

This again is Corporate America or BIG Business making the working men and women of this country left to flip the bill for there irresponsible spending. Unless we as a people all wake and do it soon, we will be led into total gloom in an economy that seems to be destined to totally fail. When will people understand that when you Hear about this New World Government", or New World Order, why doesn't that make you think its a scam to take control of you and me and to throw out our constitutional RIGHTS! Those rights were won by our forefathers having to shed there own blood or lives so we can have today what we have. These Elites, whether you want to believe they exist in this country. Who do you think is running this country? Its a select few, richer and backed by MONEY which is corporate Bankers in this country and Europe. Why should we have to flip the bill for them passing bills to spend money that isn't even there? It's the "Interest" on that invisible money that will basically enslave us to have to pay these Nation debts off! What do you think our fathers before fought to defend us from such in this country years ago. Why couldn't this be going on again? If your not seeing whats going on, it's because you don't want to believe it. Just watch this video link i'm posting here. Just watch it, and see if this could be actually what is happening. It is hard to believe for us when we TRUST our leaders. It's what we'll do to defend us loosing everything we worked for every day of our lives to have here in America! Greed and Power seekers are causing all of this. Please, Do yourself a favor, watch the video i will post. Educate for yourself, watch this so you can decifer for yourself, if this really just can't be going on. Least it will give you a new look at what to watch for. Daily happenings in the news will show you that in this video it sounds just like what this Government is actually working there :AGENDA'S' for!
