    I read this earlier. The thinking is likely keeping this quiet so there is not a run on the banks or a threat of their stock prices falling any further.

    i know, yah?

    and speaking of the banks and all. iceland is on the verge of bankruptcy. an entire country. is on the verge. of bankruptcy. that's pretty intense. i forget the name of the bank, but there was this one bank that became so bankrupt, that the peoples who banked with them could not withdraw any money whatsoever.

    Ok, so I figured out why they won't say where the money is going...because they themselves don't even know where it's going! Essentially the TARP has turned into a $700 billion cash giveaway where companies can take what they want and use the money "for what they need to use it for," I'm assuming this means free vacations.

    I would like to send out a big heart-felt fuck you to all baby boomers who have made the next 10 years of my life as difficult as possible while trying to set yourselves up for easy retirement at the cost of my future. Karma is a bitch, the worst of luck to you.:squintfinger:
