  1. More bailouts will probably come after LEH and the auto industry. Like energy policy, Washington has done nothing about these growing problems, even though they were seen coming down the tracks.

    Taxpayers are never at the negotiating table when these deals get done. They are widely dispersed and ripe for plucking. Ultimately, you would be surprised if taxpayers didn't get stuck with the bill. We'll continue to be the suckers. And we'll get told, "it's for your own good." You wanna kill somebody when you hear that.
