    I would never authorize a blank check bailout the way Obama did, it is foolish and naive. I would have attached strings to getting the money, so that they would have to prove they are being good corporate citizens.

    Kind of like how welfare recipients should get their money with strings attached, to prove they are good public citizens.

    By your logic there we should drug test all taxpayers because they are the ones that dictate how welfare is provided.

    And btw, you would have caused the failure of the world monetary system. Let's first separate investment banks from commercial bank, than I will join you in letting the investment banks fail.

    I would've argued against that...before the bailout.

    Now I'm shutting up.

    What? That doesn't follow my logic at all. My logic, or my claim, is that if someone receives a free handout, they should expect there to be strings attached.

    Also, I wouldn't have allowed the banks to fail, that's not what I said either. I would have given them the money, but with conditions attached. For one thing, they should be required to show us how they are spending our money.

    They get paid in return for a service provided.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your post. I'm also not clear who said there are no requirements already that have to be met to receive welfare?

    How does peeing in a cup prove that you are a good citizen?

    Face it dude, it's nothing but a scam.

    Bull****!! They ran those banks into the ground, the government gives the banks hundreds of millions of dollars to stay afloat, and the bank CEO's give themselves a fat bonus on the taxpayers' dime. They are not providing a service. They are committing welfare fraud. Sure, there is no law against it, but it is exactly what they are doing, and none of your weasel words in defending these con artists is going to change that fact.

    It's a drug test. Taxpayers would rather that welfare recipients not do drugs.
