Politicians: right now I'd rather line them up and slap them than vote for any of them.
Economics: The only way I'd support this 'bail out' is if they wrote into the legislation that those found culpable would be publicly flogged, and left penniless. That goes all the way down the greedy chain to some real estate agents I know of that spent the past 10 years or so selling houses to schmucks that couldn't afford them, and bragging on how much commission they would make - even if the home ended up in a default.
Investing: why do we even bother. It seems like opening the statements is one of the most stressful things I do every month.
