Yes, they're calling it the "rescue plan" now because it sounds better than what it really is - "money that is stolen from the tax payers to give to the millionaires and billionaires."

The stocks rallied today and they say it like it's a good thing!!! All the middle class and retirees had to bail out of their stocks last week because they couldn't afford to lose more but the rich bought them up. Now the stocks go up and the ones that own them are the rich because much of the middle class had to sell theirs!!!!

DEPRESSION IS COMING MARK MY WORDS!!!!!

I'll tell you what would turn this around in a heartbeat and that is if our president could get off his lazy ass and hunt down Bin Laden and smoke him out. We would have some confidence and pride back.

I tell you there is nothing that pisses me off more than this piece of **** out there on the loose. We need to do whatever it takes to find him and kill him.

Al Qaeda does exist but it is only a loose association of terrorists that is not nearly as organized or powerful as this administration portrays them. Bush plays up your fear of this in order to push his agendas. It looks like it's working on you too, Anthony.

Another depression is almost guaranteed if McCain gets in office.

Am I the only one who believe we can turn this ship around? :confused:

I get down about it too sometimes and you just have to cheer up. It's not the end of the world. Go outside and see how nice it is. If you think about it we have pretty good lives compared to the rest of the world. Even our bad economy is worse than most countries at their best.

This will turn around and I know it. Relax and don't worry it will pass. ;)

not everyone is being stupid about this. for the first time in a long time it was reported this week savings rates are up and debts are going down. as much **** talking everyone like to do about americans being lazy and not being able to adapt doesnt really apply here.

we ARE changing are habits and cutting back in this economy to live within our means and the numbers are showing it.

A depression will only happen if we have Republican leadership for another 4 more years. Bill Clinton proved to us how Democrats know how to manage finances and the economy.

Leave it up to the pros - the Dems.

Anyone who thinks the Republicans can handle the economy when they have never balanced the budget within the last 50 years needs to wake up. If you look back you will see when there has been Republicans as president there has been deficit spending and Democrats have always balanced the budget.
