    Back in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it.

    They failed and it closed.

    Now we are trusting the economy of our country and our banking system to the same nit-wits who couldn't make money running a whore house and selling whiskey.

    Amazing.

    Be fare.

    The Whores were probably a little upset at having to pay taxes for the first time and probably didnt work to their potential.

    Any bank seized will most likely be bought by another bank.

    Agreed and therefore bought by another bank.....

    FDIC FTW

    Otherwise we can just have all the bank employees lose their jobs and customers lose their money. Yes, yes, that sounds better.

    I would recommend everyone watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0zEXdDO5JU and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYhDk...eature=related (part 2).

    It basically shows a visualization of the credit crisis and why everyone would be affected when these banks do go under. AIG for example, is a world-wide stable insurance company with this hedge fund attached to it. They took on so much bad assets (insuring the sub-prime mortgages) that it's bringing down the stable part of the company. AIG and other companies like Bank of America, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, etc. play a huge role in our economy and the flow of money that they essentially are "too big to fail".

    The credit crisis is linked to everyone from an individual person, to a small business, mortgage companies, banks, hedge funds, etc.
