Friends, I have read the papers and determined this financial crisis is now over. No problems left the the Big O hasn't solved. I note the following: We have special moeny being given to the IMF in the amount of $250 Billion....that should be about enough to fix the world economies when we just spent $12 trillion through the FED and Government guaranty/bailout programs Our AIG investment had an initial cost of $80 billion. We have spent about $170 billion on fixing AIG so far and the American taxpaer will get a handsome return on their so called investment that was twice as expensive as anticipated when we made our first investment. Only in government can you be off by more than 2x and still call it a successful investment. Federal employees got the highest bonus in government history. I can only assume we had so much cash left over from our investments and left over taxpayer money laying around that they wanted to spend it rather than refund it....all in the name of stimulating the economy. Medvedv is calling our President his "Comrade". World peace wrapped up in one g20 meeting. This boy from the "hood" knows his shit! We will have a national service to help indoctrinate our children, just like Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, and Moussilini. Would we really ask for more from our leaders in Washington? No. We need a grand and glorious leader and we should make him our permanent leader, just like Chavez.
