Honestly I haven't had a lot to say about this recently but it has gone too far. Using what I would call scare tactics and another 'you are with us or against us' type tactic Bush addressed the American people about a $700 billion bailout package.
Frankly I don't buy it. In all my years I've never seen an address like that about the economy or what basically sums up to be scare tactics like if you don't do this then this will definitely happen. Ok so we are supposed to trust the economic advisors that, to this point, have been completely wrong and also are a part of the very government that had no oversight during this whole mess? C'mon we aren't that stupid!
I'm very tired of the do it my way or bad things will happen in politics, science, and just about every field this thought process has penetrated into. Granted the current situation is very concerning but how do we know this bailout is the answer and not just more money going to the wrong people in the wrong places at the wrong time?
Don't we have anyone out there in influential positions that can actually think something through without resorting to brainwashing and irrational knee-jerk decisions?
