I work for the federal government and have no investments...I'd love to see the economy teach the republicans a lessor for permitting corporations to fist-**** the middle class.

now that we're in this predicament (incurred during democrat congressional majority) we need republican policies to further deregulate and lower taxes for high-incomes to create jobs for the working class to "build their investments."

The middle class taxpayers have made all the investment and will get 0 return. What a load of crap. I need to seriously consider moving out of the country. I dont deserve to pay for this.

Sorry but I couldn't resist inserting a link to last night's 60 Minutes show:http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/...n4502454.shtml

50 to 60 Trillion Dollars in CDS (Credit Default Swaps)? WTF? FWIW, that amount is 5 to 6 times the US debt!

Smart Wall Street minds invented these "swaps" so as not call them insurance and therefore not be subject to regulation. Banana Republic 101. We've got local bankers in jail for much less than that!

And for those who thought this was only a US problem; watch what's going on in Germany's financial markets.

After seeing that program last night I have a small question: since all those financial institutions lost all those Billions; who the **** made those profits? Where are those profits?

I was using teh ironing. I know that since deregulating energy and cable TV, my bills have skyrocketed. However, I rest easy knowing that someone raising the price, and charging me more, is somehow contributing to the ease of my day-to-day life. Don't ask questions or doubt your leaders, shut up, drink Budweiser, and watch American gladiators, America is alive and well.

I'd like to know what America learned from this. More importantly, I want to know what our government will do when these companies get back in the black, to sell off the debt. Most importantly, I want to know what the government has planned for the tax payer, when these companies start turning a profit. We're paying for it with $3600 per citizen, and I can't wait to receive my dividend payment from my investment. However I've assumed that this bailout was for the tax payer with the whole "main street, not wall street" phrase which both parties throw around.

I dont understand how this is such a big problem if 94% of America is paying their mortgage. How the hell can just 6% have such a huge impact?

Because the mainstream media says so. It's the standard differential between what's real and what's perceived..

The company's executives, democrat US senators, and a few people in the US house.

I dunno about the 6% figure, but also most of these problems are in high cost markets (FL, CA, etc)...
