So the bailout failed a couple hours ago, and the market is more or less in a freefall. In the 20 minutes that I've been watching, the DOW has fallen about 80 points.

What do you all think about this? Who are you blaming?

also chickens coming home to roost, we're all gonna die, no one is safe, VOTE RON PAUL GOLD STANDARD, see you fuckers in the bread lines etc

Quoted from http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26884523/:
WASHINGTON - The House on Monday defeated a $700 billion emergency rescue for the nation's financial system, ignoring urgent warnings from President Bush and congressional leaders of both parties that the economy could nosedive into recession without it.

Honestly, I'm still getting my mind around the fact that all this is happening. I haven't gotten to the point of blaming anyone yet, but when I do I probably won't know who to blame. I'm sure you'll all tell me whom I should blame, though.

It's really annoying to me that the conservative asshats of Congress can't realise that without this bailout plan, the economy's going to head swiftly downhill.
Quoted from MSNBC:
Despite pressure from supporters, not enough members were willing to take the political risk just five weeks before an election.

This is going to have an impact on my life, but I'm just not sure of the extent yet. I might actually vote for Obama after seeing the way McCain made such a big deal about his campaign being suspended to lead congress to passing this and now completely ignoring it.

Plus I hate Sarah Palin and McCain will die within four years, but that's Off-Topic.

Better?

The sad thing is, that someone will use this in a mudslinging competition in a few weeks.

Whoa, the news just said this was supposed to be the last day of work for the House for the year. And they went home around noon today.

What the fuck? Why would you just leave after you fucked over the entire nation? I fucking hate politicians, oh my god.

They had better use it against the people responsible! Any senator or representative who voted for deregulation any time in the past 16 years should be held accountable for it during this election and the 2010 election. It's absolutely their fault that we're in this mess in the first place.

p.s. this is an issue of insolvency, not liquidity, that's why the bailout would cause more trouble in the long term. let's let our failing businesses fail instead of propping them up, and pick up the pieces instead of kidding ourselves about the economy for another year

When will you (as a nation) learn that intervention does not equal socialism, that socialism does not equal communism, and that communism does not equal evil?

We won't.

And Agon, when the failing businesses are the mortgage holders for half the nation, something probably needs to be done.

Who the hell's going to pick up the pieces? What about the millions of people who have their retirement in mutual funds? Just let the market sort them out?
