    I just don't understand how people think these bailouts are a great idea. Don't people understand you can't just print more money and hand it out. It has to come from somewhere. Where in the fed budget is a trillion dollars coming from? People are fucking idiots.

    And don't get me started on nationalized health care. People love that as well. While I think it's a great idea, it's a pipe dream. Again, the taxpayers foot the bill for all the deadbeats who don't care. The reason a state like Hawaii can do it is because they have tourism. The tourists in effect pay for the health care with their tax dollars. That's just not going to happen on a bigger scale.

    Where are all the hardcore democrats that where pissed about the Bush administrations plan for a bail out? Its a shitty idea when Republicans pitch it but its the best idea since sliced bread when a Democrat wants it?

    We are screwed.

    George Washington warned us precisely about this. The political parties were just getting started when he left office, and he saw that they could rip the country apart. Here's a piece from his farewell address:

    it's not just tourism... it costs an absolute FORTUNE to live in hawaii.

    milk is $9 a gallon. gas is probably still over $5
    an 'average' house is 800,000.... of which is then taxed for property taxes.

    that's how they pay for it....
    basically, you CAN'T be poor and afford to live in hawaii...
    frankly, if you're poor, you can't afford to get there in the first place.

    yep, it's heading that way.
    I'm planning to pay $45,000 in taxes this year. yup... some low life's salary right there.
