In case you didn't know, our government is set to give the banking and mortgage industries a huge bailout consisting of billions and billions of dollars. And since when has the government ever given us the correct statistic for something like this? It's probably more along the lines of a trillion dollars.
Seriously, I could puke. If I was stupid and greedy and made big mistakes with my money, the federal government would tell me to kiss off, oh and be sure to have my creditors attach my wages. Write your Congressional representative (go here to email them) and tell them that you will never vote for them again and will work to help out their opponent in the upcoming elections if they vote in favor of this bill. It is too much money that we will be paying off for decades, and that allows the people who did the bad, stupid stuff to get away with it, leaving the taxpayers holding the bag. The government looked the other way when all this was happening, and now suddenly because it failed massively, they suddenly care. Cry me a river. Let the Republicans, who by the way favor "less government intervention" and are generally proponents of a free market system, allow the free market system to do what it was designed to do. Which is let private businesses that took bad risks pay for that risk by failing.
So who better to talk about the root of all this evil than Pink Floyd?
