    Man if I had the time I would make a youtube vid for the financial firms.

    Please someone make a youtube video replacing the lyrics in tune with the financial bailouts.
  3. 2.69 B shares... 86% owned internally and by institutions.

    Asking for $70B bridge loan (Just to stop the bleeding)

    They are asking $26 per share to bail out shares that have a present market value of $2.60.

    I see no benefit for the government to intervene.

    I believe something will be done, if there isnt anything done it will have a huge impact on the entire system. I could just imagine the chaos if they go under, LEH was bad but with would be WORSE. Alot worse.

    Will the top management be asked to return their bonuses for the last 3 years too?

    If they are not asked, then will the taxpayers have the right to walk up to their properties and families and get their monies back.............ANY WHICH WAY THEY CAN????????????????????
  7. If something is done, will it be at a premium, or a takeunder?
