    That's exactly what it was intended to be.

    Not only that, there's absolutely no constitutional basis for it. It's unconstitutional and hence illegal.

    It's called the First Amendment. Also, they lost their money. Boo hoo hoo. That doesn't give them the right to take someone else's money to make up for it.

    And of course they were ignorant. They didn't get out when the market started getting flaky, did they? And of course they're irresponsible, if they think someone else should be covering their asses now. And certainly they're whiny.

You are like dogs who lick the master's hand while he's beating you.
    It's suppoesd to be a free country. That means people who have money are free to use it as they please. If someone has more money than I do, and there's plenty of those, that's their business, not mine, and not yours.

    The government shouldn't bail them out, shouldn't loan them money, and shouldn't treat those people any different than any other citizen in any way. Read the Fourteenth Amendment if this concept is new to you.

    "unfounded"...ah, you must mean that you haven't read the Constitution, therefore you can't find what I'm talking about.

    We have no hope of saving this nation. Because it will continue to do what you say here instead of obeying the Constitution.

    Re: Obama: Like families, govt to make hard choices

    Now. What "hard choices" is Obama going to be making?

    Oh, he's going to cut WOW one hundred million dollars maybe from the budget. That's just sooooo difficult, isn't it? The federal budget is three terabucks, (that's three million megabucks) and he's going to cut a hundred megabucks out of it.

    Let's see...that's 3,000,000 - 100 = 2,999,900 megabucks left in the budget.

    That's such a desperate deed, I can't believe he's taking such an enormous risk. I mean, it's impressive. What family with an income of $60,000 could afford something like that? I mean, cutting the family budget by two whole dollars? That's incredibly difficult, isn't it? what are they going to have to do without to cover for it? Skip Netflix for a week? Drink five beers one night, instead of the whole sixpack? Wow, Obama is soooo impressive, isn't he?

    A hundred million dollars? Piffle.

    Cut:

    National Endowment for the Arts - it's up to what, $250 million or so?
    National Endowment for the Humanities - it's in the hundreds of millions, right?
    Corporation for Public Broadcasting - There's a free market in TV and radio, the federal government has no business taking market share. Terminate the project, auction the assets.


    Jeez, there's tons and tons of other equally completely unconstitutional items in the federal budget. Cut them.
