The Big Takeover

Thanks, Douglass.

This article is quite revealing and is well worth the time it takes to read.

It illustrates how truly nefarious and secretive the bailouts are and how taxpayers are being saddled with the excesses of billionaires.

I would rather see our economy suffer and recover than see our government bankroll the losses of out-of-hand investment banks.

The following list is hyperlinked in the Rolling Stone article, and it, too, is quite revealing:

If newspapers wrote investigative pieces like this instead of Administration-generated pufff pieces they wouldn't be going out of business.

This is a good article from Salon, which is not exactly a vast right wing conspiracy source of information, relating to Larry Summers and Tim Geithner and their sources of cash:

The title (Larry Summers, Tim Geithner and Wall Street's ownership of government) says it all.

This is a complete fox and henhouse situation.

Where are Ron Paul and former (deceased) Senator William Proxmire when we need them?
