The crisis that needs to be addressed is honesty and integrity in government, business and finanace not a few billion or trillion dollars. I thought fraud was illigal and dishonesty was impeachable. Throw the bums out! Send theme to jail!

This is why the RICO act was put in place. This is an ongoing criminal conspiracy.

When will America wake up?

How can any elected official vote in favor of this bill when 99.9% of the general population are tell them not to?

Listen Up People, This is Important Our country is in crisis. We have been living on credit from the top to the bottom. The companies we have been doing business with did not plan their budgets on their actual cash on hand but on their purposed income from doing business with you and the interest you would pay them.

If you have a history of bad credit and skipping out on debt, no problem, they'll just charge you a higher interest rate. The problem is, they were blinded by greed and wanted their bottom line to look good. They began to feed on themselves. They took on more and more and more bad debt. We are now stuck in the cesspool of their conniving, scheming trap of credit.

The same as we don't have enough to pay them back, they don't have enough to pay anyone else back. I think we should all stop paying our bills, pull our money out of the banking systems and just pretend that everything in life is normal.

Do you remember a few years back Bush was pushing to privatize social security and let Wall Street have at it?

Do you remember just about a year ago when Bush was insistent that the economy was stable?

Do you remember lying to your parents when you had smoked pot drank beer or had sex and pretended that you would never do such a thing?

Come on people! Wake up! This is a crisis which is only going to get worse.

Look around you, join a cause, list your stuff on www.buymy____pile.com or do something to let the government know you're out here, you watching and you're not going to sit back and just watch them destroy our country.

If you're in the mood, organize a rally with help from these people www.truemajority.org Or just figure out something you can do to let it be known you are not going to take the "everything's fine" attitude of the government anymore!

I always told my children when they were young, If you hold a single stick in your hand and you bend it hard enough, it will snap in half. If you hold two, three, four, five, etc. It gets harder and harder to break. There is strength in numbers, the larger the number, the more strength.

Anyone who knows me knows I am not one to jump on the band wagon. I don't go with the flow and I have my own way of doing things. At this point and time though, dam straight, I'm driving the bus to the steps of the White House and yelling the loudest when the door opens! Let’s move people, let's move! We can’t afford to fix this

Dear Senator,

For the sake of myself, my family and our country, please do not pass this bail out. I did not create this situation and feel it is unfair to be asked to use my tax dollars to fix it.

Thank you, (Your name)
