    It's all public...Go look.

    I wouldn't expect you to go searching back either. What does me looking this up except make you sound stupid? That's not enough satisfaction to waste a long time searching.

    If I make a public statement claiming credit for something I did, I have enough pride that I would care to prove that I'm not just lying.....& would make the effort to back up my claim.
    (But that's just me)

    I admit to having a big mouth & often just shoot from the hip. If this is one of those (rare ) occasions when I am wrong, I am man enough to admit it so.........Go ahead & prove me wrong.

    It's trivial. There's no point except to prove you wrong. It's not worth the work.

    And I expect in the final analysis the AIG and financial bailout will end up costing the taxpayer nothing. With interest, we could actually make a profit. Certainly, most of the large recipients are more than capable of paying the money back once the economy turns.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    It still doesn't compare to the amount of money that we could have made had we saved that money and invested in companies that were doing well.

    Why should the government invest in companies that are doing well? What's the point?

    They shouldn't. They should have let us do with the money what we wanted.
