Q: "Why the F are my tax dollars being used to make loans to banks, mortgages, failing companies?" This is BS, blah, blah, blah trillions of dollars, blah, blah, blah, medical, blah, blah, blah, housing, blah, blah, blah.
A: "Aren't you (and many other Americans) the same one that's bitched over the years about the trillions of dollars being sent out to help in other parts of the world? You couldn't fathom how our country could send billions of dollars out of the country to fight wars and help other countries when our country, our people, our businesses need so much help."
(Picking poison scene from "The Princess Bride")
So pick your poison, help on the homeland, and when it works, (or if it works for the skeptics) we will be paid back with interest, or send it all out and watch our country evolve into something I hope I never see happen in my lifetime.
