We keep hearing about how this is such a huge "world credit crisis" but yet we are the only ones being asked to pony up a trillion dollars for the sake of bailing out the rich investment banks. I don't see the Russians or the Europeans or the Canadians or the Arabs tossing in any of the trillion dollars me and you are being asked to toss in. Why not? I guess their people are not as stupid and gullible as we Americans and their leaders would never ever get away with such a rip off!
