we should just make our own policy

so, i don't know if it'll really be the biggest financial crisis since the great depression or we're all going to die or what... either way, the best part of any political crisis is overhearing the statements by my insanely over-conservative coworkers.

today's winning comment (and I overheard this from a real person, not making it up): "I can't believe the feds can't help but throw more of our money at another problem. So wall street is tanking? Why do they deserve our money? I say let the economy collapse, maybe it'll finally teach them a lesson!"

I thought of asking the guy what he thought the "economy" was. he works for the same company I do, so I'm not sure he's thought about where money to buy airplanes comes from (the economy), what keeps his savings account from being worth more than a loaf of bread (the economy), why his house is still worth more than what he paid for it (e... yeah) but I just let it go.

well, we have to do something - this is not a slump, this is threatening to be a collapse. I would prefer something more systematic, like putting back stuff similar to the New Deal polices that we've been demolishing since Regan, to repeated bailouts.

Warren Buffet invested 8 billion into two flailing companies since this crisis has started. The man is not known for throwing money away.

You have to give some serious thought that something is potentially bad when Bush is for it. Has he been on the right side of anything since he has been in office?

Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats should have scratched their temple and done a double take when they found out this was supported by Bush, the man they love to hate and call him wrong on everything. Its him and his cronies that are cooking up this "crisis".............
