    Well there must be some proof, after all, you did claim that each job cost us $228,000.

    So how come you can know but I can't? You said I have no idea what would have happened. Neither do you.
    Ok really? They would have filed for bankruptcy re-organization. Pretty much everyone knows this.

    And then what would have happened to the economy in general?

    Do you know the difference between Chapter 11 and Chapter 7?

    By the way, of all the hypocritical, hilarious things you've said, this is the best one so far.

I do believe that i do know what would have happened without TARP, union contracts wouldn't have been bailed out, states would have had to come up with their own funding, some businesses would have failed and others would have taken them over and none of that would have been on the taxpayer dime. The fact that the largest banks were forced into TARP is quite telling

    why don't you read your own post, #714, and apply the whole 'caustic and baiting ' thing to yourself......

    Now, if Obama could just get EVERYBODY to stop looking for a job, we could get the unemployment rate down to 0 percent!

    People dropping out of the workforce altogether isn't the solution, folks.

    I don't dispute it. It's just pointless and obvious, that's all.

    I never lie and I try to make sure my statements of fact are accurate before I post them. You?
