Yep, it may suck, but in the end we will all be better off. Especially this stock! Plus, we will finally throw these Republicans out of office and get this country back on track.
Enough is Enough
CRAMER? Ok you really understand the market. A regular pro. I suppose thats why you sit around posting on lame boards like this? Not very pro on your part. Cramer, the guy who said you'd be nuts to sell Bear Sterns at $67 last Novemeber. I'd say you watch a little too much Cramer.
Another downtrodden prolatariot speaks. Bush Bush Bush. Your own crappy station in life is your own doing, not some bunch of polititians, and this whole current financial mess is all about stupid people taking loans they can't afford, given by greedy bankers who were pushed by stupid democrats. IT'S A FACT. If you recall, republicans attempted passage of a bill in 2005 to moversee this coming mess, with these two retarded entities run by idiot beurocrats, which you guys shot down. Better to shut up and let people think your a fool then talk and prove it.
Why Republicans don't get it.
Also, the economy is always better when we the people do better. Stop this insanity of debt now!!!
Ignore Republican right wing crap at all cost. They got us in this mess, and we have to bail them out, AGAIN.
Hang in there guys, the insanity is almost over.
The article is certainly valid, but so is the previous poster's comment about being forced to make loans to people that cannot pay them. Just because McCain's campaign manager has a relationship that should be questioned, it does not mean that the previous poster does not have a point. He certainly has a very valid one.
Legislation that causes bad business decisions is still stupid.
Funny political twist, considering this entire mess was caused by Fannie, Freddie, and the democrats FORCING them to make loans to people that can't pay them. When the republicans try to pass an oversight bill in 05, the dems reject it saying it's a ploy to stop the poor from owning homes. A democrat congressman just aanounced an apology. Give him credit, cause those other morons like Frank and Pelosi will never do it. jack a s s.
BBT among the few elite banks. Bailout will only add to value as smaller institutions will be acquired. The bailout, although punitive, only helps the market & BBT.
Stay confident my friends.
Explain real S-l-O-W to me how the bailout benefits BBT.
Seems to me it will keep banks alive that should be dead. Now these banks will be competing with BBT with high deposit rates and lower interest rates on loans. Seems to me this hurts BBT on what they have to pay for deposits and can charge for loans.
Futhermore, if these banks are allowed to fail BBT stands a better chance of picking up choice assets at firesale prices.
I don't see how more competetion and a lost opportunities helps BBT.
Since clearly I am S-L-O-W explain it to me slowly and use small words.
