Uuuuggghh. I woke up w/ a migraine and have been fighting it all day. I am just gonna turn off the TV. All the cheap money, cheap mortgages, irresponsible lenders and buyers . . . all the toxic securities, etc. etc. brought us to this point.

I don't like this bill but I am worried about lines of credit and my 401 K and the mutual funds I own . . . and inflation skyrocketing. . . Sorry . . . self preservation.

Probably the best thing to do right now is pay off all your debt and keep everything in CDs.

Turn to C-SPAN . . . there are Legislators who voted NO b/c they believe there are other innovative ways to address this situation.

I have to believe our elected officials are capable of finding a fair way to address this credit problem . . .
