That's a figure of speech so don't start loading the ammo.

But really, I wanted to punch the television when I heard this:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, evidently with a straight face: "This is not about a bailout of Wall Street. It's a buy-in so we can turn our economy around" and protect the assets of ordinary Americans.
It's BS on a stick is what it is.

I can't wait for one of them, most likely that nimrod Harry Reid, to tell us this is an "investment" in our future.

I still keep feeling this bile in my belly that this same federal government that created the GSE-s that generated all this "crippled" paper is now exacting a price to re-guarantee this "crippled" paper when they had previous allowed they implied guarantee on this same "crippled" paper to lapse.

Yes Virginia, there is greed on Wall Street, but, last I checked, it’s still a crime to commit fraud on both the rich and/or the poor.

When the government sets up a "snake oil" enterprise, all the people, both the rich and the poor, who are represented by this government, are responsible for the actions of their respective "snake oil" representatives in making good on their claims, so don’t think of this as a bailout, but rather restitution.

I realize that restitution requires assumption of responsibility, and responsibility seems to be the most difficult concept for any public official (and the public, rich or poor) to assume.

And, yes, politicians have a way of creating temporal shunted history that always seems to stop just short of the point where they screwed things up, causing us to have a problem to deal with now.

Hey, it’s just like the Democrats social security trustbox. You know, the one where someone borrowed all the money we put into it, but left nice little IOUs that said "don’t worry... we took it for a good cause (earmarks for our fat-cat friends). Don’t fret because the taxpayers will pay it back."

I love these "screw you twice" deals. In the spirit of social security, now we’re using taxpayer funds to bail out the Democratic fat-cats who ran Fannie, Freddie, Countrywide, etc., and in the event they don’t pay everything back, gosh, we’ll screw the taxpayers again by putting a tax on these firms (which they’ll mark up the cost of business and pass onto us again).

Somebody please get these crooks out of office. My ass is hurting from this Congress.
