that the people who are opposed to the stimulus, bailouts, teaser loans, housing boom, low rates, easy credit, fed printing money, tend to be one or more of the following? 1. poor 2. welfare liberals 3. paleocons 4. short sellers The forth category is especially telling. Short sellers KNOW that the great depression was exacerbated because the govt. did nothing to protect the banks. Back in the early 30's there was no stimulus and no bailouts under Wilson so stocks plunged.
