    Should I respond to the conjecture, the baseless speculation, or the ignorance of how the US Government operates.

    I know.. My avatar does suck, but I have it as a response to all the people who groundlessly call me anti-American.. Just have to put it up for their satisfaction..

    Anyways, if you don't agree with Pete a personal attack is just a very stupid way of showing that, and actual answer would be better, even no answer at all..
    Where I am from debate etiquette dictates "do not take the person, take the opinion/post".

    Any response like yours would be judged as "less developed"..

    Certainly. I could say the same in a lot of case, but I just was disappointed by you, because I expected more from you than groundless post/opinion/personal attacks..

    I would not be surprised if it came from hordes of other people, but from you

    Anyways, enough of this.. You seem to be against the bill? But why?

    I was utterly against the bailouts and think those funds could have been better spend in a stimulus package. I have problems however with the stimulus package, the tax cut parts of it, which I consider throwing more money at the economic bonfire. If the stimulus package is to work it should only be directed at government programs such as infrastructure spendings which against leads to job stimulation and other economic stimulation.

    I dont support the stimulus package, because I think it will do more harm than good, considering you cannot afford it.

    the economic patriot act. Nobody reads it, but they pass it anyway because they are told that bad things will happen if they don't.

    Make Congress Read Their Bills Before Voting
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You're a liar. This bill hasn't been available to read for over a week. It's been redacted several times, and the final version wasn't available until 12 hours prior to the vote.

    Obama's campaign promise was transparency. He would make sure, bills would be posted in their entirety, on his website for the American people to read, 5 days prior to it being voted on.

    Obama's been in office less than a month, and he's lied about everything so far.
