Lawmakers: Financial bailout agreement reached




The bipartisan consensus on the general direction of the legislation was reported just hours before President Bush was to host presidential contenders Barack Obama and John McCain and congressional leaders at the White House for discussions on how to clear obstacles to the unpopular rescue plan.

I just got that too... why does anyone bother? No matter how much people complain, they do whatever the hell they want anyway... and if you complain loud enough, the two sides work out a couple "deals" to make it look like they are listening... but the jist of it still goes through.

I'm depressed, angry, and sick of this system. Somethings got to give.

Reminds me of bicycle tires when I was younger. You'd skid and skid and skid, knowing you were going to totally screw your tire over. It being so fun at the moment (temporary gratification) that you wouldn't stop. In the end, the tire pops and what do you do? Use a 50 cent patch, tons of glue and skid and skid and skid!

It's ridiculous how these politicians use the same rationale when dealing with peoples lives.

I wrote three representatives regarding this matter ... not to mention the bail-out. Now that they've accepted the terms, I can't wait for their replies to my letters.

I just hope they've lined their pockets-a-plenty because they're not getting my vote again. And I'll do everything in my power to keep them from being re-elected.

In what way?

The insatiable thirst to fulfill your needs, using people as objects and vehicles to get there, only showing your true true face after you've achieved desired goal?

whoa ... I better clarify for all those Google Apps that are cataloging web pages and sharing info with government agencies.

I'll do everything with in my power (LEGALLY) to keep these representatives from being re-elected if my letters are ignored.

I'd sure hate to be added to the 1 Million + Club that makes up our "domestic threat" list.

Why does anyone bother? UHMMMM, Last time I checked, no one IS bothering. We say, we write, we protest, we blah blah blah, all the while, we continue to conform to whatever we are told to do. That isn't bothering. Actions people!! Action!

Quit worrying about THEM and start living for you, your family, friends, and those nearby in the community.

The only way things are going to change is if we "shut it down" by not participating in it and pretending that they have the solutions. They have $$, several houses, several cars, several partners, blah blah. Our freely given belief that they have any powers or solution is THEIR solution to raping this planet and conforming its future into what they see as ideal. Withdraw only that belief and you withdraw from supporting an illusion. They need us to believe the illusion of security/freedom and quite frankly, I DO NOT believe them and their stated intents.


Just stop paying for their greed and you will start seeing solutions to YOUR problems and how all we have been doing is ensuring they have no problems... WILLINGLY


ANYWAY
point is, YOu don't NEED anyone to abolish the federal reserve. That is still waiting for someone else to do your dirty work. Abolish it in your own life if you feel the need to do so. That is the only solution right now. INdividuals taking control of their own life back.

That's the craziest thing I've ever heard.

How does one go about abolishing the Federal Reserve "in my own life"?

I work for an incorporated company. It's way too late for me to fall "off the grid". It's not about ignoring them. That just allows to do what they want - for example: Instituting a Federal Reserve, deregulating the banking industry, deregulating media ... where has that lead us? Into a two-front war on terror and left us with a broken economy.

To suggest you should sit back and not worry about it disgusts me and it's exactly what's wrong with this nation.

They best chance we have to BE INVOLVED in every aspect. Elect officials that support your own ideals.

WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMEN ON ISSUES OF IMPORTANCE TO YOU!

GET INVOLVED! Let them know that they don't have your vote if they don't represent you!
