    Ah, yes, the first “Repo Man,” with the alien in the trunk and the Mike Nesmith trademark of somebody blown so thoroughly to bits that all that remained was a pair of smoking shoes…

    Unemployment is up because public service employees are getting pink slips (teachers, cops, firemen, soldiers). As Obama fires government workers the Republicants are screaming “high unemployment!” but it’s what they wanted in the first place.

    Hmmm, well how about a lucrative job at Wall Street gaming the economy? If you make good bets, you get a big bonus. If you make bad bets, you get a big bonus. If you make disastrous bets, you get a big bonus and the government pays for it!

    Unemployment is up (near 15-20% in real numbers) because Obama is scaring the crap out of companies by his trillion dollar deficits and socialist/marixst policies. They will not hire until he is gone.

    @rvernon: What fantasy world are you living in? “Scaredy-Cat private sector”???…maybe it’s because it’s THEIR money and THEIR risk and they don’t TRUST our liberal tax and spend government to support a decent business environment. It’s easy for the ‘public’ sector to ‘invest’…because it’s not their money. As a taxpayer, I’m tired of paying more money and better retirement benefits to our public servants than I get myself….and it looks like the taxpayers in Wisconsin think the same thing. And I don’t solely blame Obama…he’s had plenty of help from his liberal party and way too much assistance from non-conservative Republicans.

    I think Obama could go to his favorite city Las Vegas and bet all this countrie’s money on 00 (and lose) and you’d still think he walks on water.

    WAKE UP!!!!!

    Not disagreeing…but you lose too much your customers and shareholders walk away. Of course, why in God’s green earth we bailed out the swindlers is beyond me.

    True, it is a bit of an oversimplification for the sake of brevity. It is entirely possible to get a bonus and a pink slip in the same month.

    The reason for the bailout? Well, they were “too big to fail,” weren’t they? Supposedly allowing the Wall Street criminal empire to fail would have caused an unstoppable cascade of failing financial institutions around the world. I’m not an economist, but it makes sense. Bail out the institutions? Okay, I can accept that. Not prosecute and jail these criminals? I can’t accept that.

    Nope…they weren’t too big to fail..and should have. We rewarded bad capitalists with an escape on our tax dollars. Their failures would have enabled better managers of finances to step in…Prosecution, although I fully agree with, wasn’t going to happen considering it was our own government (more Dems then Republican’s) leaning on investment companies to give loans to people who had no ability to pay.

    You’re being an idiot again by calling Sammysock’s comment ridiculous….sorry, but he nailed it on the head! What scares me is that from your post you seem to be reasonably intelligent and your inability to see how poorly Obama’s done.(and knowing there are many East Coast and Left Coast lib’s just like yourself) makes me really fear for our countries financial future.
