    LOL. I see you understanding of corporate structure is on par with your understanding of quantum mechanics.

    Obama fired the CEO and put in who he wanted. Stock holders had no say

    Do you know what "analogy" means?

    Considering your extreme ignorance of this subject, I bet you don't know the size of the securities owned by the government of the firms involved do you?

    Not the point Obama abused his power. The government should not be running private companies as they did here

    Chappy,

    What specific provisions of the bill do you think address the "failings" of the "American system"?

    And could you clarify what you mean by "failings" and "American system"?

    digsbe,

    Specifically, what needs to be reformed, and what provisions of this bill address it?

    What's wrong with CEO salaries, and which CEOs are you talking about?

    What's wrong with how loans are given?

    The government isn't going to own the banks, they are just passing regulatory measures to help insure that we don't go through another financial crisis.
    You think the government can prevent "financial crises" from occurring?

    The banks will still be run by CEOs and staff members, they just can't hurt the American people anymore with foolish business and having the rich CEOs as the priority.
    What "foolish business" are you referring to, specifically?

    lol. Cute. You really have no idea what happened did you?

    Tell me, did the government tell GM how to run its production line?
    Did the government change their vacation rules?

    You have this insane notion that government providing material help = takeover.

    Re: Senate passes sweeping Wall Street reform

    I'm going to assume, since neither Chappy nor digsbe answered my questions, that they don't actually know what problems exist or how this bill addresses them, and were merely touting something they didn't actually understand.

    If they think I'm wrong, then I await their responses.
