Partially because they forget that some of us are watching. Not doing anything about it but by damn were watching them.
How is this Habee- The Government is going to do what it wants with the money it receives, regardless of what people want done with it.
I find it ironic that people believe they have a say in what money can be used for what, when government doesn't listen anyways.
Because most taxpayers obviously think they are not taxed enough, yet.
Arrgggh. Because the government took them over and thus the government is responsible for their debts.
Waiting for the righties and Evan to log on and faint dead in their tracks when they see that
I think we should all get a look at the people who contributed greatly to the destruction of our economy.
A lot more went into destroying the Economy than just these two companies. And, to point fingers at any one thing, negates the irresponsibility of everything else which was the cause.
Just a thought.
Good point, Cagsil. There are so many elements and people involved that I don't have enough appendages to count them all!
But what these 2 companies did by loaning money to people who had little or no chance of paying their mortgages was instrumental in the starting the snowball down the hill.
YEA, BUT WE INCREASED HOME OWNERSHIP BY....OH WAIT THEY ALL GOT REPOSSESSED....
I know this is off-topic (sorry), but I was out of town and off the grid for about eight days, and during that time Cagsil seems to have reversed his forum absence. Sounds like an interesting story. Would someone please share a link so I can catch up on what I've missed?
Things changed and specific timing on other things have been made, so participating in the forums could still be done. It's been worked out that I can still be here and have time to work on other things. Thank you for your interest, but that's all that changed. Btw- you could have contacted me directly, instead of making it public here, but to each their own.
Thanks for the explanation, Cagsil. Yes, it's true I could have found a different way to ask. But I do remember that it was a very public departure, so I guessed that it was possibly a public return as well and there may have been other posters who also missed any story, if there was one.
I know that you are very loved here, and I am sure you were missed intensely in the forums during your absence. It couldn't have seemed like the same place without you! Welcome back.

With the economic downturn in the US auto industry, it is evident that all the auto companies are suffering great losses. The Congress has also demanded a better chalked out plan from the companies saying that they will be granted aid only if they have a well defined plan. Is the Govt. attitude...

Are US taxpayers paying their fair share of the income tax?
