A bailout, no matter what it`s for, is not a fix. It only puts off an even bigger collapse till another day. Get rid of the Fed. A transition from the Fed system, to a government run banking system can be made, yes there may be bumps and hills, but it can be done with only small damage done, not a total breakdown.
If anyone in Washington had a brain, they would be working on this right now. But, how many of them have a brain?

As a result, more than $4 billion in United States Notes were brought into circulation in $2 and $5 denominations. $10 and $20 United States Notes were never circulated but were being printed by the Treasury Department when Kennedy was assassinated. It appears obvious that President Kennedy knew the Federal Reserve Notes being used as the purported legal currency were contrary to the Constitution of the United States of America.

Isn't it ironic that these same corporations that want the taxpayers to bail them out of their bankruptcy were the same ones that pushed for more stringent bankruptcy laws for these same taxpayers? Where it has become harder for the ordinary taxpayer not only to file for bankruptcy, but even after filing he is still responsible for his debt? Correct me if I'm wrong.
