bailout money

everyone is concerned about the money going to gm to keep jobs AIG sent 90 bil to germany and china of their money from the bailout thats 3 or more times the money going to gm and not one american job saved.
dont hear anything about this. this money was used to pay insurance on bad investments.
our bought and paid for congressman from the southern states who used their taxpayer money to bring foreign manf. in say nothing about it, going on TV about GM sell better.
How much money do we give to the saudies and others, and maintain military in germany and korea for years and getting nothing in return. I dont think we even export any cars to korea, but they are sure flooding our markets, i would like to know about this trade agreement, somebody must have got a lot of money in their (reelection funds) to be used to employ all their family members, and payoff others

AIG should have been allowed to bankruptcy, and the hedge funds that bought the insurance should have taken the bullet, but the fear was it would bring down the whole economy big time. Autos? People buy what they think to be the best bargain. All things considered the imports are the better value when it comes to and individual's finances. Driving a mile down the road in an American made car can be pretty expensive. The economics and business model of American made iron got out of control and all it took was some decent competition and now we now see the result. GM will be back after bankruptcy but it won't ever be the old GM we knew. Health care costs and other legacy costs caught up with GM and Chrysler soon Ford is going to have to also deal with these things.

I caught a blip on CNN this morning which caused me to rub my eyes and wonder if I had read the banner correctly. It said, I think, that we (USA) are now out of money.
Out of money?

As long as there are printing presses the Detroit Duds will suck our tax money up. Of course there are consequences: Weimar Germany of the 1920s.

Correct. At some point the currency will devaluate into hyper inflation.
$400 barrel for crude, $10 gallon for gasoline, quite realistic actually. Possibly optimistic. The US government is getting close to trippling the money supply since last September yet the economy has shrunk.
Unfortunate that so many at the top of government are so stupid. I know believe I understand why native indians could take a herd of buffalo and get them to jump right off a cliff.

That is, I guess, what the left leaning voters wanted when they elected this socialist. I hope he is not a communist in socialist woolies.

Governments are unable to borrow money because the credit rating is sub-zero. The US Fed relies on creating new money as they are unable to raise and borrow the upcoming 1 to 2 trillion dollar deficit. In time this translates into currency dilution, otherwise know and devaluation of the dollar and inflation.
The course government is on right now is commonly agreed to a not sustainable.
Yes, the US government is broke, like GM it is running on debt with the added advantage money creation to dig even a bigger hole. But in the end it's ballon to will drop.

As I see it, the government can print more paper, or tax everyone more, or both.
And "both" is probably what will actually happen.
We cannot sustain the levels of spending, waste, charity, and incompetence that have gotten us neckdeep in ooze.
We are long overdue a massive overhaul of government...Not just a change in personalities, but a complete housecleaning.

nah, that's just one new thing, there's still a lot of cleanup to be done. And while Obama may mean well he's already made some missteps (CAFE for one)

Me, I am thinking anarchist for say 5 years. The whole concept of government in DC and Ottawa is now defunct. Let them close their doors in bankruptcy.
Why not let the citizens vote directly on the bills, financing, bailouts and the like? The politicians then would have to sell the idea to the people on how their money is spent. And not behave like freaking thieves.
Maybe even have annual votes. Just like employees do. We get to rate them and if they fall below par we get an election. (fire the loser).
It isn't like a horse and buggy has to go from LA to DC in 3 months to tally the votes.
And if it is verification you want because it is electronic, concurently post you vote to Rep, Dem, government, ABC, MSNBC, FOX all at once. So we know that government isn't fixing the vote.

Oh hell no. I don't think the average person has any concept of "enlightened self-interest" merely only "self-interest."
What we really need are elected representatives who are thoughtful, have the best interests of the country at heart, and fill their staff with real experts and listen to their advice.
Sadly qualities like "photogenic-ness" and "likeability" seem to have more weight than "intelligent"

I remember the hanging chads, but dont know that it would have made any difference in the final outcome. IIRC, there were recounts, but they did not overturn the vote.
The president is only one of the problems. There are 100 senators and 435 representatives, many of whom are self serving porkers.
I am not sure we can afford this level of "democracy".
