Bailout foes plan day of protests


money.cnn.com

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- The public backlash against the Bush administration's proposal to use tax dollars to bailout Wall Street could spill into the streets Thursday.

"People all over the country are up in arms about this," said David Elliot, a spokesman for grassroots advocacy group UsAction. "Our members are livid, and they're hitting the streets."

At present, there are 220 events planed in more than 30 states, according to organizers at TrueMajority.com. A number of organizations have contributed to the planning of the protests, including Democracy for America, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn) and labor unions.

This is economic socialism, just like what Mr Chavez did recently in his communist country. We are being scared into it the same way we were scared into the Iraq war. Ironically, the same people who did put orders on the stock market on 911, making money off the deaths of thousands of trade center victims and thousands of soldiers killed in Iraq, are the same jokers we are paying to bail out.
If we would of given the 85 billion [AIG] to the American people:
85 bil divided by 200 million = 425,000 to each person over 18 minus 127,500 in taxes= 297,000 to each person. We could pay off our homes, credit cards, college loans and buy an electric car. THIS would save the financial institutions, people that lost their homes, could buy new ones, and start savings accounts. This would only cost 59.5 billion dollars because 25.5 billion would go directly to the IRS. We can spend money more wisely than the bankers can. The 200 billion going every week to prop up wall street could have paid down the debt. That's just the AIG money. The only way they can keep us controlled is to keep us in debt. The bank robbers are raiding the last banks in town before they split town, boys get a rope.

I read something very intelligent in a post from yadda333 recently.

I think it is about time yadda333 had at least one flag.

yadda333, you now have your first flag. It has taken some time, but I think you have earned it


Have a great ATS day,
ET
