    As sickening as it is surreal. I will be calling my reps and voicing my utter displeasure at this business as usual attitude and suggest others do the same.
     
  2. We still have November 4th... suggest we all vote for the non-incumbent. If 90% of them got thrown out of office, perhaps they'd at least take notice.

    I agree.

    Wrote my congress-critter and senator who's up for re-election this year to tell them just that after they each voted for the bailout package.

    Only got a form letter reply "thanking" me for sharing my view with them.
     
  4. Remember how Paulson refused to restrict bonus for those receiving bailout funds?

    He's the biggest farkin' crook of them all.

    Of course not. Wall Street Welfare, the name of a new docu-movie coming out next Summer, is only one-way.

    I am actually more pissed off at anyone who supported or voted for the bailout, and now is complaining about these bonuses.

    Many people opposed to the bailout raised the moral hazard issue, and no one listened.
