    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.
    For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
    To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task?

    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.
