    The price of gold shot up this week, and silver moved proportionally. Headlines are screaming for gold to hit $10,000 or $50,000. Does this alleged new bull market have legs?

Hope you didn't pay full price. You can get them below retail on ebay. Or used ones by those who bought the hype then figured out they have a fairly useless toy.

TARP I passed despite the howls of outrage and specific, "don't pass this bill (TARP)" demands bythe electorate...

Tarp II will pass also...

The Congress and everyone else serves at the pleasure of Wall Street and the TBTF banks.

Count on it.

Isn't it likely that BAC and the other banks will just settle with Pimco, et. al. for a fraction of the amount?

He might.... buy at 50 cents (or whatever).  Would you, (a) settle for 55 cents after a couple months and a little negotiating time, or (b) grind it out in court for a couple years (racking up $$$ in legal) for the hope of getting par.

Yes, if the Republicans even think about another bail out they are going to write a very strongly worded letter to John Boehner.

I don't believe there is political will for it on either side. People in the know (who understood what was going on...and some that didn't! lol) were pissed we had the first TARP... post Dodd-Frank, people will want the institutions brought down. There is no repeats with this shit, not if you want to keep your seat.

I like Whalen's idea on the subject...

No debate, no hand-wringing trying to get Dems on board... They'll give the Dems and everyone else the middle finger salute as they trot it over to O, who will sign it while looking for his balls.

Ehh, if Republicans controlled the House in 2008 there might not have been TARP 1.  It was Democrats carrying water for a lame duck President.

"Following today's news of an imminent lawsuit to be filed against Bank of America by such entities as the New York Fed"  In order to meet the reserve obligation, BofA will use the discount window.  It will exchange more toxic assets for cash to shore up its reserves.  Back door bail out.

Bofa will end up in the hands of GS or JPM in less than 3 months.

I vote they will end up in Govt control.  The real concern here is how quickly this will spread to Wells Fargo (Wachovia/Golden West) and JP Morgan (WaMu/Bear Stearns).

Last year I had predicted that Citi will go to GS.

Now it looks that you may be right. GS is most likely the one as it does not have any branches.

It will never happen...the days of TBTF getting bigger, fatter and more systemically dangerous, are over.  Dimon should get his RV and take his daughters on another cross country trip.

Not a chance.  Both are smart enough not to touch the Countrywide corpse.  Not even if it were sanitized.  What would GS want with (a) the little people (i.e. retail banking op) or (b) all the people they turned down for a job, i.e. Merrill.  JPM wouldn't want the anti-trust scrutiny (yes, that's laughter in the background).

More likely, if one of the big banks bit the dust, we'd get a look at all the deep flaws of Dodd-Frank, and Ben & Tim would have a bank to add to their conglomerate of car, mortgage, and insurance companies.
