One the one hand we have the stupidest and poorest Americans who bought McMansions by lying on their loan application and now irresponsibly walking away from their homes. On the other hand we have Wall Street and Paulson/Bernanke engaged in unprecedented fear mongering warning of an immanent Great Depression if we don't give Wall Street $700 billion on top of $300 billion already given. And they want this money IMMEDIATELY (no time to consider other plans, no time for debate). The Patriot act was passed in a day with no debate because everyone was shit scared. And that's how "they" are trying to pass this bill - by scaring everyone into an "urgent" bailout - it is pure terrorism.
