    ...and I gladly stand with him as a Michigander; he reminds me of that fellow you Brits have - can't remember his name just now - Thaddeus McCotter, Republican.

    I don't know the ins and outs of the US Bailout...

    Is the US Government now a shareholder in AIG (as was the case in the UK re: Banks), or was the bailout in the form of a Grant?

    If the former, then isn't breaking up and destroying the company in the current climate a little like selling low on the market? ie: Losing the investment.

    If the latter, then its a case of you've already lost a shitload.. do you want to risk any more?

    Okay, pay attention, 'cuz I'm only gonna say this once:

    The administration has already demonstrated it's penchant for removing obstacles and dealing with problems by merely altering their appearance or referring to them by different names, as in, "it's not socialism if it's B.O.", see?

    So then:

    The bailout was a "loan", but in name only.

    The government owns it, and anyone who would argue otherwise is an arse...devilsadvocate, I believe that's your cue.

    That's him.

    From what I've seen, he's pretty sensible.

    Ah, but if your desperate and in Debt you steal to feed the family rather than let them starve.

    The Politicians in power aren't quite ready to let the population starve.. although they will say they'll cut spending if they're in oppostion.

    My cue for what?

    If you have a mortgage on your home or a loan for a car it's not yours until you have paid off the debt.
