In any case we should demand a full disclosure of the $700B package purpose and distribution.
I think that this bailout will prove to be the biggest scam in US history.

Living in Washington for ten years has given me a certain perspective on things. Everyone--coast to coast--inveighs against the "idiots in Washington" and the "criminals in Washington" and all I want to do is climb to the tallest peak and scream back at them "WHO DO YOU THINK SENDS THEM HERE?"

Because everyone thinks Congress is responsible for the mess, yet they send their own representatives back, year after year. It's always someone else's fault.

We have to fix this disaster ourselves. We may not have caused it, but you can be sure that whoever caused it isn't interested in fixing it. We have 1) to protect ourselves to the best of our abilities and 2) cause everyone who was 'in charge' during this debacle to join the growing ranks of the unemployed. I'm not sure we can wait until 2010, and I'm not sure we can do it peacefully. I do know that the forces of reaction are merciless. The brave men who founded our republic had courage--but a lot of them had also come to the point where they felt they had nothing to lose. Perhaps that's what it takes. We may be on our way.
Revolution anyone?

Mirabo?

Danton?

Robespierre?

Guillotine on Pensilvania Avenue?

Total BS.

We have our system which worked well for over 200 years.

It will still work if we know how to use it.
