I think a lot of the country's hopes lay in Libertarianism, and by default, RP. But I'm leery about waiting to see if he get's elected. Seem's like big action is needed NOW.

it's not that no one cares...it's what can you do about it. these transactions were done by the FED in the U.S. and the ECB in Europe. this was private lending with a "guarentee" backed by soveriegn debt. the voters (peons) have no recourse in these matters. representative governments no longer control capital or the movement of it.
the massive economic force that can be applied by disgruntled capital can, and has had, devastating affects on societies around the world. capital knows this, and that's why they don't care what you or i think about it.

Disgusting. Too big to fail? Right... see you later free markets in corporatist America. These bankers are greedy psychopaths.

Question: "All Other Borrowers - $2.639 trillion" - are these banks too? And which ones because that's a boat load of money there for a throwaway line such as that.

Just imagine for a moment the 140'000 per taxpayer would really be paid directly to the taxpayer.
Everyone could afford health insurance/ social security for life. Most people would put a large amount of their money to their bank accounts, so the banks would profit as well, no bailout needed.

And at the same time it would be a huge boost for the economy since everybody would get out and buy that new flat, the new car, pay back the student loans, fix their house and so on and so on.

I was just making a point that if passed out to tax payers, each would get $140,000. in reality we could not do that because it would instantly increase the money supply by 700%. Making all goods and services cost 7 times more than they do now.

and that will happen when hell freezes over...besides, can you imagine the push-back using the whole communist/ socialist arguements that capitalists would use? remember, capitalists have money to make accidents happen.

Ahh, but then those undeserving people would be getting a fat government handout, and it would corrupt their will to work, right? It it would probably addict them to more and bigger handouts, right?

Banksters, on the other hand, deserve that support since they and they alone stand between us and fiscal apocalypse, working hard every minute of every day to prevent it. And they are above getting addicted to anything, no sir, just once, and nevermore, right?

Besides, giving the people unearned money, pfff, they would just waste it on paying their bills and buying frivolous necessities, instead of spending it wisely on yachts, art, jewelry, and parties to influence lawmakers.

Sheesh, some people simply don't get it.
