The TARP agreement says the money given to the financial biz "is not reviewable by any court of law"! Everyone on this board sees the bullshit (I don't agree with everything the gov. is doing), but then they draw entirely wrong conclusion! The whole country has to support the financial industry. The gov. has been instituting programs like the TARP, and the will DO IT AGAIN, or ANY TIME THEY FEEL LIKE IT. Traders will not stand in the way of Warren Buffett, but they will go short against the largest economic entity in the history of mankind. And they KNOW that very same entity can, and will, bend, or break, any rule to further the bullish case. That is the most important point of all! Yes, the fix is in. ON THE LONG SIDE.
