    I haven't been around for a while and am trying to catch up on my thread reading, but I have a quick question.

    I'm not looking for your reasoning, just a simple yes or no.

    Should we give any more bail-out money to the banks?

    NO!

    No.

    more? they never should have gotten a cent to begin with. The whole concept was just a big fat placebo.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Let 'em go bust. We'll have a shorter bust with a stronger banking system when it's over, if we clear out the dead wood now.
