We absolutely have been fooled, threathen or setup for this. Look at the 700B wooden arrow bailout bill. Yea, give me 1 billion so that I can lend out 10 cents that the economy so needed to survive. At the end, the FED STILL need to setup a facility to lend to the commercial paper market directly, which is what the 700B supposes to do. Look at the 20B bonus pool they have for the investment bankers this year. The excuse for the bonus is to keep "talent". With talent like that, please don't work. Actually, send them to our enemies.
