There are subjects I know a lot about and others I know very little about. And the high-wire financial mess we're currently in falls clearly into the latter category. But I know enough to be troubled that we appear ready to give upwards of a trillion dollars in unfettered and unreviewable spending authority to the ... let's face it, the Bush administration, the folks who did such a bang up job in Iraq and New Orleans.This morning a friend told me it's like the Iraq War all over again -- Shock & Awe, followed by an occupation of Wall Street, and all with no exit plan.
Make those who are to be rescued agree to some conditions so that this will not happen again. Otherwise, this is basically giving Wall Streeters (who are to be fair friends with both parties) a lot of money for nothing in exchange.
We'll be publishing more of your emails. So please let us know your thoughts.
