    @Gabe
    First, we agree on addressing the issues and I think this is disagreement for the sake of disagreement.

    Second, I don't give two $hits about what you've written, to whom you've spoken, and think your logic is attributable over -- we're equal as citizens and the only perspective that matters concerns that of the present financial debauchery and greed.

    I've been following these matters far longer than the last month, hence my "vocal bravery" when I see the rich benefit at the expense of everyone else UNJUSTLY. You obviously settle for less.

    What you call logic and sanity, I call roots of dictatorship, socialism, and the further divisiveness between those "with" vs those "without" of which only fuels "pain" globally to this second.

    My problem is summed up in one two words:

    ACCOUNTABLE TRANSPARENCY.

    There is none, there hasn't been any, nor will there be any unless people demand it, which you have only spoken softly. Even in all your commentary, you don't have answers, except speculation which as good as those of us willing to take the chance on alternative when only the rich benefit.

    There is more broken than a silly fiscal bailout, this is only the "battle of the moment" orchestrated by the "invisible hand" Ray Charles could see being yielded by the entitled (political and corporate).

    Im in favor of nothing but pure fundamental capitalism. Any less is self preservation at the expense of the future -- the future I will beholden to.

    Ive seen films of depression, my family came from it and my values are consistent with it. I'll take that risk watching those that don't share those values cascade back down to Mexico (or perish). Being simple, debt free and employed -- Ill gladly adapt and take that risk.

    NO BAILOUTS FOR THE RICH!!!

  • An Absence of Leadership [View article]
    I agree, however through peril comes GREAT leadership!

    Now is the chance for the United States to take a does of tough love, thus ending our "living beyond our means".

    This demonstrates that capitalism and free-market economy is worth eating crow over. We can get through this, but government intervention, particularly of the orchestrated "surprise" caliber of recent only makes China stronger.

    WE NEED TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE AND SAY NO GOVERNMENT HANDOUTS TO ELITIST BAD BEHAVIOR!

    Gabe, I respect your premises, though thoughtful I disagree.

    Why is it that ONLY taxpayers are being placed on the line here -- in a rush!?

    If you've been bringing up the problem for many years, you should feel vindicated that it is now in the spotlight, not supporting socialism of the rich as a short term "fear aversion".

    This crisis is bad news for sure, but great civilizations rise and fall based on tough love and the ability to look catastrophe in the eye and do the right thing.

    This is a short term fix for a long term problem that is being seized upon by the corporate elite, and that is deplorable.

    To add perspective: When Paulson and Bernanke were asked if "Wall Street owed America an apology" NEITHER ONE COULD RECONCILE A RESPONSE!!!! HOW BAD IS THAT!!!f

    You might also wish to shed light that even the great depression was only 4 years, and we ultimately had 8 decades of prosperity!!!

    I'm willing to take that risk again, and let our "living beyond our means" take a dose of needed tough love.

    SLOW DOWN AMERICA, GIVE CAPITALISM A CHANCE!

  • Barney Frank's Money Quote [View article]
    Now that this matter (derivatives market in general) has the spotlight, I urge government to stand away from the problem and allow the free market to fix it -- thats what fools all over seeking alpha fail to see:

    WHEN THERE IS A PROBLEM IN A FREE MARKET, IT CREATES ARBITRAGE, ARBITRAGE CREATES OPPORTUNITY, OPPORTUNITY MOTIVATES THOSE WHICH SOLVE THE PROBLEM AND GENERATES A PROFIT!

    Step back America, let the opportunists in, quit letting Paulson/Bush/Elitists get unbridled socialist entitlement to that market using your government!!!

    As proof: Ask your Congressional representative why the "small guy" on Main Street is being ignored.

    Self-preservation of the rich folks, don't be fooled -- YOUR LIBERTY IS AT STAKE.

    Also, why not set a constitutional amendment in motion that defines the benchmark of "too big to fail" which can further insulate the corporate elite from the rest of us.

    NO BAILOUT!

  • Bush's Speech: Surprisingly Coherent [View article]
    Stone Fox Capital:
    "Screwing over banks in distressed times is a form of price gouging. Why is that acceptable?"

    It's acceptable as summer is to winter. Banks have been predatory through aggressive lending to unqualified borrowers thus screwing me over with self-preservationist bailout.

    Quit subscribing to the notion that only good things come from government handouts.

    This is a short term consideration that YOU SHOULD BE DEMANDING TIME BE DEVOTED. Not some decades old surprise waiting to happen when the credit curtain was pulled away from the wizard.

    Is there a serious problem? YEP.

    Can capitalism fix it? YOU BET.

    Is the Bush/Paulson/Elitist plan a joke? YOUR PATRIOTIC ASS, AND ALL WHOM HAVE DIED FOR THE FREE MARKET WOULD SAY IT IS!

    Johndough110 your wisdom will die with you. Y

    ou are a sucker and should yourself move to Mexico so that an illegal can have your free house courtesy of this bailout.

    If you actually had two cents in your irresponsible skull, you'd quickly realize that a free market will rise from the ashes of this.

    You're no hero, you are a coward that subscribes to "Fear Magazine".

  • Bush's Speech: Surprisingly Coherent [View article]
    Felix (and others on here) you are all sell-outs. Please move to China immediately. Bush's speech was rehearsed and pre-recorded, dont be a fool that falls for a good speech when your liberty is at stake.

    We don't need this bailout!!!! All of the posters on here that are like "what other plans to we have" please move to China as your entrepreneurial spirit is deplorable -- not to mention you are a sucker.

    Let this situation rot in the short term. Now that there is attention to this matter let the market create itself!!

    QUIT SOCIALIZING THE RICH YOU FOOLS!!

    Have faith in the free-market, and buy a bottle of hot sauce to enjoy with your crow.

  • House Price Datapoint of the Day [View article]
    GOOD! Keep the values PLUMMETING!!!

    They were inflated to begin with and this is the recovery we need. Those of us whom made and continue to make prudent housing decisions will be just fine -- our reward will come when we land the houses of our dreams by earning them.

    NO FREE HOUSING TO ILLEGALS!

  • Curing the Credit Crisis: A Better Alternative Plan [View article]
    "More than anything else, the government must start being honest with the people."

    I could not agree more! Transparency, transparency, transparency.

  • Where's the Bottom? Still Anybody's Guess [View article]
    I've been taking a lot of time lately to consider "alternatives" that everyone keeps talking about. Out of this reflection, I feel as though Congress has all eyes on the financial crisis. This gives me much more confidence in that my interests both personally, and nationally will be served.

    However as much as I despise the socialism of the rich, I think it be prudent to consider that "rich" is simply a concept in which the rest of the world still frowns upon even me.

    I'm more and more confident that participation by all will "help" the problem, and now that the rush is mitigated in lieu of sacrifice, I'm ready to move on...

    This is my first investor crisis, and as such, have learned a tremendous amount, notably in emotion, and stability.

    Though the broader economy is yet another matter, we're all in this boat together, and i think more ores are rowing in the same direction after the last couple of months than the prior decade.

    My tone and attitude is changing, and the opportunist is coming back.

  • Can Hank Paulson Lead? [View article]
    Paulson said over and over: "We want oversight."

    What does that "mean" exactly?

    Does it mean we (the thugs) want the power to fix this or we want Congress to have the power? I say again, when asked if Congress could give less (I think around 150B was tossed around) and re-evaluate in December (presumably after a new administration), Paulson said, "that would be a grave mistake".

    I DEMAND TO KNOW WHY SHARING OVERSIGHT WITH CONGRESS WOULD BE A GRAVE MISTAKE!

    He's a salesman, and is trying to sell the American public their own right leg.

    Congress: For the first time ever, TELL THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION NO!

  • Can Hank Paulson Lead? [View article]
    Again, I have comments. No, Hank cannot lead --- he showed his hand when asked if he could do with less and he said that "would be a grave mistake".

    There is an invisible hand revealed when "all" is turned down for the sake of Congressional oversight. That just revealed that this is a grasp for power, all else is irrelevant if one cannot compromise with the simple premise of oversight.

    Quote of the day: Organized crime today is very organized.

    Challenge utterly EVERYTHING concerning the power of the purse. Take as much time as needed, obtain as much perspective as possible -- TO HELL WITH THE ADMINISTRATION'S CALLS FOR ACTING QUICKLY!

    So, where are the ceilings? $700B MY ASS!! THIS WILL BE TRILLIONS, JUST LIKE IRAQ!

  • Two Interactions with the Federal Reserve [View article]
    Interesting commentary.

    On a personal note, Ray Charles could see that the Federal Reserve is an executive branch extension into the Legislative branch's power of the purse... DUH! ABOLISH IT!!!
