No Bailout

Finger-pointing.
It's all the Democrat's fault.
It's all the Republican's fault.
It can't be the fault of predatory lenders, the financial leaders of our country, or Lehman Brothers.
It can't be the fault of the wage earner who bought a home that they couldn't possibly afford if they were being realistic.
The proposal to tax the population of the U.S.A. for 70 billion dollars has failed. For now.
Listening to George Bush's speech a few days ago got my goat. "We are going to bail out yet another tottering institution so that the great American people can get more credit." And owe more money.
Isn't that what got us into trouble in the first place?

Extremely good point. I am mad though that people think that the bailout would ONLY help the rich. It's not really true. The rich will stay rich. The middle class will get hurt.

I feel like I'm on a rollercoaster ride and I can't get off, feeling sicker with each turn. All we can do is wait and see what happens at this point. But hopefully some good comes out of this whole mess and we turn into a nation of savers instead of spenders of credit.

It's a catch twenty-two for us. We are small business owners and depend on people's credit to buy our homes, yet we know that it needs to be fixed.
