    Ah how sweet, we are helping the fat cats wean themselves from government regulation so they can pay execs high bonus pay again at the expense of the tax payers. Unacceptable for a company that should be dead right now if not for the forced generosity of the US tax payer.

    Damn they did get a sweet deal

    Run wild and reckless with lending.
    Pay exec's millions in bonuses
    continue bad business practices
    Ask for bail out
    give more bonuses
    acquire a few fail banks
    do little to change how you conduct business

    finally,
    Don't pay your taxes.

    This is crap.


    It's the American people that will eventually pay for the bail outs (currently China)

    The American people should pay no taxes.

    After all it won't be businesses getting the economy going, it's the people.

    Basically whatever he does he's better than the alternative.

    The alternative is a government of the people, by the people, for the people, unfortunately the alternative has decided not to run for an election for a long time, probably because of how corrupt politics are in general. A normal person would feel pretty ****** waking up knowing they screwed millions of Americans over for campaign contributions.
