When something is being wrecked, all that government can do is speed up the wreckage. When something needs fixed, the government is its usual slow self. That's good news for the military and bad news for Wall Street. Wall Street wrecked our local economy and this was once a powerful economy that did much to defeat Hitler and win World War Two. Keep crashing Wall Street. We support the troops. We built the LST's here and could build more for the future. AIG is hunting big game in the UK on borrowed noney and borrowed time. Socialist insurance men, what a joke it all is. I could use some more capital. I'm sure the capitol doesn't give a hoot about me. Why should they when there is a country to think about? My plan was rejected and it was a great plan and still is. I guess I'll get sent to the new work camp or concentration camp when Washington gets around to carrying out the rest of the bad plan. Billions will be made and lost. In God We Trust
