  1. Please ignore all the dupes and rubes that estimate the Federal bailout at a meager 2 Trillion.

    The running total, according to Bloomberg: 12.8 TRILLION.

    How does 2 Trillion in Toxic Mortgage Paper equate to 12.8 TRILLION in bailouts?

  3. Unlikely.

    Obama aggressively supports the UN and Internationalism.

    According to FOX News, the G20 end game is to "harmonize" global regulation of financial markets. Which is just a nice sounding euphemism for IMF control of the US FED and SEC!!!

    huge chunck of that bailout figure is "committed" capital, not actual cash paid-out. probably less than 20% has been paid. This is a non-trivial point. But, I agree the situation is dire.
