  1. What is this obsession with what we are in is called? Does it matter when you pay your bills? When the government is planning on and has already bailed out those who are not only operating a business by making bad decisions but they are doing things that are against the law. When Maddoff has been stealing for over a decade tally is currently at over 50 Billion, when Dreier has been involved in identity theft and stealing and his firm can file for bankruptcy, when Bank of America who has the top two ranking for identity theft is given bailout money? The bailout money is not free, it is paid for by you and I. The tax payers of this country need to stop this now. We should say no more. What are your thoughts?
