“a stealth government bailout of the mortgage industry is well underway”
<A HREF=”http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/laland/2008/03/the-big-housing.html”‘Helicopter Ben’ Bernanke and the ‘Bankers’ Bailout’

hmmm…how stealthy is it to throw 200 Billion of taxpayer’s money at it? Thump!

First the bond rating agencies don’t downgrade and then the Fed takes up the loans as collateral claiming that they all havel still good credit ratings

methinks Helicopter Ben will soon start to autorotate

the Banks will most likely take the easy money and further inflate the commodities bubble
