After reading this thread, I got to thinking about the failure of the bailout plan,
and the resulting continued downward spiral of the stock market. Was this simply punishment for the House rejecting the bailout bill? Was that why
the vote was so close? Because I refuse to believe that with the public outcry against this bill, that any congressman who would like to keep their
seat would vote for it? There were tons and tons of calls and emails sent to representatives before the vote, with many threats of losing votes as
Did some of those members who voted in favor of the bill, know what the consequences would be if it failed? Certainly some were in the profiteers
pockets, but such an event as a stock market crash could induce public panic and more outcry. Were the powers that be playing their wild card?
I wonder about blackmail from other countries. Its wierd to me that a couple weeks ago, Bush was telling us how strong the economy was. Then suddenly,
BOOM! Its armegeddon if we don't hand him $700B with no questions asked.
I think there is somethign going on, much deeper than Bush, congress, or the MSM is leading on.
I TOTALLY believe this is blackmail. It didn't pass and the stock market tumbled. Congress took the day off yesterday and almost all of the gains
came back. Now they are in today and it is down more than up. Wall Street is pulling strings through manipulation at the least and I am so angry.
Is everyone still emailing their representatives ?
