I sure hope the American people can handle the blow brought by this government's economic bail out. However one wants to view it, it's a disaster. Our kids' kids' kids will be paying for this, not to mention our own immediate future has to carry around this trillion dollar life preserver. If you're in real estate, you're a dip-shit. At the very least, you're guilty by association. Go to hell. Take it from someone who admits that the financial world is pretty much greek to him: Rome is burning.
