WHY WHY WHY is no one calling foul on this.

Lehman Fails
Paulson says "Don't worry, everything is OK"
Goldman Sachs(Paulson's former and future employer) starts to falter
Paulson Proposes bailout saying it MUST pass, we are in a crisis
Saves Goldman
Promotes fellow Goldman employee Neel Kashkari to be the front man in charge of the 700 billion dollar bailout.

Recap.
Person calling shots has vested interest in the success of a former employer and the failure of its competition. Promotes someone else that also has a vested interest in the same.

Conflict of interests. Had this been a trial and Paulson or Neel Kashkari were the judge it would be a mistrial.

This disgusts me.

They certainly won't let their own fail will they?

Just irritated at the entire situation of it.

I'm moving to Marv's and going to live in a trailer. I call dibs on the flat land above the tank trap.

"In just five trading days this month, and in the fourth quarter, it is down about 1,400 points, or 13 percent."

Bank of America dropped 26% today.
