But make no mistake, the losses are real and Americans will pay one way or another.
Unless we say "no" and make it stick. If you have to, punctuate the "no" with a two by four across the forehead of any carpet-bagger who insists that the taxpayers have to pay for the reckless greed of Wall Street, not to mention the stupidity of the US Government!
Remember, the real ultimate cause of the collapse is the US Government itself, which gave hefty tax credits to corporations to make it easier to send high-paying American jobs overseas! Had the US Government given those same tax credits to keep jobs here, Americans would still be making those mortgage payments and everything would be fine.
