I was reading this article yesterday about the nigerian 419 scam and how whenever they find a sucker, they go back to the same guy with another scam to try to get more money out of him(usually some kind of scam about how they can get his money back) Then something all of a sudden seems awfully familiar today when I saw this article http://finance.yahoo.com/tech-ticke...-Need-100B-Bailout?tickers=GM,F,TM,^GSPC,^DJI It basically says that the automakers do not need 25 billion, but they need 100 billion now. This seems to be the biggest scam in the history of the world and nobody is seeming to notice. It all started with giving a few billion to some investment banks...then it got more and more and now its just ridiculous. Spending 100s of billions of dollars to save companies that only ever net a few billion dollars in profits. Its like if you had a business that made 25k per year in profit...and next year it looked like you would go bankrupt. Would you take a 5 million dollar loan to try to save it? Well if you knew you would never pay it back, hell yeah. (in fact you would try to get a 10 million dollar loan or 25 million...whatever you could get your hands on because you know you could siphon off quite a bit of that cash along the road) But if you were a lender would you loan 5 million to someone like this? Hell no! Let them fail and give a much smaller loan to the guy who will pick up the slack when the first guy fails. This is what is happening now...its the biggest con in the history of mankind and its also one of the oldest cons. You find a mark and get his money, then you keep going back promising to get his money back over and over until you finally get it all. This is what is being done right now.
