It is curious. Timothy "Duggie Houser" Geithner seems overwhelmed.

But just when it all seems confusing, the folks who brought you the Iraq bad guys card pack have come out with the Financial Crisis Card Pack.

I only hope that Barney Frank is on the list as he and the folks who pumped all that money out causing the bubble in the first place.

And while I am on it, here is a great summary of the problem by Peter Schiff. It occurs to me that maybe Obama is purposely creating a bigger problem in order to create popular support for greater government control and to usher in his Ultimate Marxist Solution. Whats next? Serial numbers on bullets to control guns? Will it be illegal to own gold?

You can buy bullets? Cripes, you can't even buy reoading equipment. It's gone off the shelves before it's unloaded.

Personally, I think AIG should have hit the dirt quickly. It would have been a mess, and it would be behind us by now. The message we are sending now is one of insanity.

meuon - I concur. Ron Paul and Peter Schiff have been saying as much too. I got bullets from cheaperthandirt.com ...

I can see his first day now...

Guys, this is Mr. Alexander. he's going to tell us what not to do. If he says "duck" then jump. If he says "buy" then sell. If he says "it's sunny outside," make sure to bring your umbrella... he should be a grand example of what not to do and how not to act.
