    Well what do ya know, a few of these legislative lifers fineally mustered enough sack to snuff this bogus bill, hmmm….I wonder if it had anything to do with the oversight committee, or perhaps the doing away with the golden parachute, Oh wait, The oversight committee is the same fools that got us into this mess, and instead of wiping out the golden parachute, we’ll just attach a little tax on em and no one will notice. Good grief, there is so few politicians with even a pinch of ethics left….Sad, but hey, Ive got my little one vote to use coming up…..Ha

    The best way to protect we on “main street” is to get rid of the multi-million dollar finance execs who were instrumental in getting us into this mess. Surely “they” knew a long time ago this was on it’s way. NO BAIL OUTS.

    VOTE NO!!
    Give away money for Rum, Wool, Arrows, and Auto racing
    You are kidding!!
    Stand up for the real People!!!
    Historians will now be able to look back at 2008 and say this was the time when the
    acceptable level of stupidity and greed reach it’s pinnacle. This time will be proof
    to the rest of the world that democracy can be subverted by it’s leaders.
    The proof is in the fact that not one of the politician has come forward with an
    alternative plan to save the economy. Other than to burden the future generation
    with a ridiculous amount of debt.
    While the Bush administration was trying to stop a rampant arms race in the Middle East. A arms race that would have ended in the destruction of the oil supply to the United States and economic disaster. The chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Rep. Barney Frank and others allowed banking institutions to subvert current lending practice with the sup prime mortgages. That Barney Frank allowed this to happen in hopes of bringing down the United States economy and placing the blame at the feet of the Bush administration is vile to say the least.
    The Bush administration should have been more vigilant. The Bush administration
    did have a lot on it’s plate. During crisis one does not expect his is greatest threat to
    come from someone on the home team. 10/2/08 A day that will live in infamy
    if this bailout burden is passed to the future generations.
    Thank you for your VOTE FOR ME
