Lol and agreed. I cannot watch Geithner talk. Nor frankly Obama, as I couldn't listen to Bush either. The fact that they are all lying, all of the time, should be no surprise to anyone. They see lying as central to their work. BUT, the fact that so many people believe them...this I find difficult to bear.

It is always amazing congress goes to the source of the problem for the solution.

It boggles my mind how much these people talking about demand.  Demand is infinite!  We are 13 trillion in debt and these dickwads think there isn't enough demand?!?!  Maybe we are bankrupt?

the parallels that the institution (south park elementary) thinks timmah just needs some drugs and the normal people (south park students) think it is obvious that he is retarded is amazing.  you couldn't have a better analogy for congress relation to the america people and the country's current situation.

Double speak extraordinaire ! These motherfuckers make me sick. I have been in confernce in back room judges chambers where all the lawyers say " we are all honorable men hear" when someone suggest's they are lying in the court procedures and been threatened with contempt more than once? The entire system is a bad fucking joke and there are no honorable men at least not in power! The entire thing is all about money and power/control. Fuck em all. Let's start over tomorrow. Let the prosecutions/executions begin.

Timmeh, " You can't let large financial and auto industries fail in a major financial crisis.  It would cost far too many jobs."


My question to Timmeh is, if financial institutions (major ones) are ready to fail, would that not necessitate a 'financial crisis'?

In other words, is it possible for major financial institutions to be insolvent and not be in a financial crisis?

He essentially admitted that the financial industry cannot be a free market.  The panel completely let that one go...

Makes me want to cry... or kill, not sure which yet.
