      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. lol

    Because most taxpayers obviously think they are not taxed enough, yet. smile

    Arrgggh. Because the government took them over and thus the government is responsible for their debts.

    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. wink

      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.

            Also a good point. You can't cure a bad economy by throwing money at it. This has been proven time and again. It only makes things worse.

    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. wink Btw- you could have contacted me directly, instead of making it public here, but to each their own. wink

        Thanks for the explanation, Cagsil. smile  Yes, it's true I could have found a different way to ask.  But I do remember that it was a very public departure, wink 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.
