The Oracle

The Secretary of the Treasury - Paulson- has an estimated net worth of $500,000,000 (Five Hundred

Million..that's right).....Is THIS man a good choice to be totally in charge of the biggest federal bail-out in history?.....Or should it be someone more middle class, someone more 'average joe'?......On the other hand, he has an excellent background in finance and economics and management....YOUR thoughts?
The Oracle:

To give you an idea of just what 700,000,000,000 (SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION) dollars is, one newscaster said you could buy 14,000,000 (FOURTEEN MILLION) Rolls Royces.....

SST:

while I ponder your question, lease tell me what happened to your avitar?

The Oracle:

Don't know, they've got me in this bubble-suit, I think that QnA is getting ready to send me into outer space.....

SST:

alot of people are in blue suits. I have been away al lot with school this semester, I was amazed at all the new people and then the blue suits. Thought maybe you got in trouble are something, but nice to see you again

Rita:

I think we really have no choice, a bunch of smart people put our government in place and a bunch of chose people put others in place.

The Oracle:

Thanks Jay...are you new to QnA?......welcome!

SST:

I think there are many smart middle class citizens capable of doing the job. I think I would be more comfortable with someone I know has had to work for what they have. I have been to busy studying child labor laws and to tired to go research how he made his fortune, what I do know is those fat cats walking out with their pockets lined with cash and have billion dollar assets need to have to sell that stuff and come back to where they originally came from. maybe then they will appreciate what they have and quit screwing the middle class. take away there severance pays and sell their assets tax payers wouldn't have to flip the bill. And what excuse or they going to give us when this bail out doesn't work.
I have never been more upset with old george when he said the other day something to the effect that I know americans on main street have been working hard to pay their bills on time and some other crap and i wanted to pick up my tv and cram it down his throat. he doesn't know, he doesn't have a clue, he was born with the silver spoon, He can't even pretend to know what it is like to scrimp. Oh sorry about the rant but I am so disgusted with this whole situation

The Oracle:

s'ok to rant......I understand all too well where you're coming from- and where I've been.

SST:

I am not at that financial level now, but at the rate our government is going they are going to send us back. I think when you have had to work for everything in life you have you appreciate it more and your eager to help those more willing to help themselves. I can't imagine ever forgetting where I came from. I just have this feeling that we are bailing out the wealthy and not the middle class. Since there was so much deception in the housing market it seems that some of these people that lost their homes should have it removed from their credit ratings so that they could go out and purchase another one. I mean the ones who can truly afford the payments on one.

Rick:

he doesn't have a half billion by not understanding how money and finance work. He a great choice.

The Oracle:

Good point....but does he understand how money works for the big guys or the little guy? (He was formerly CEO of Goldman-Sachs)....

Porkenstein AKA Pork, Porky, Porkens:

I'd prefer someone who knows very well how to handle money. Sounds like he does.

The Oracle:

Yes, but who's?

Frog:

Let me ask you a question. Say you need open heart surgery. Do you want some elitist from the medical establishment who has spent all this time in medical school and hospitals with other doctors to operate on you? Or would you want someone more middle class, someone more "average joe"?

Blue Gypsy Rose:

McCain is the MAN who has tried to prevent the biggest disaster in financial history from happening....Once again he put the love for America and her citizens first, before his political career...He just did the most heroic deed of his entire life, but Americans keep on fallowing the Democratic Piper ( responsable for the crisis) to complete failure.

Blue Gypsy Rose:

"Democratic Piper" defines, not just Obama, but all Dem. leaders, from Pelosi and Reed to the less powerful ones, whose greed and corruption got us to this situation... They keep on fooling the naive voters making them believe they are going to solve the problem they have caused, by giving ACORN the biggest chunk of our money to waste again and again and again!.....

Frog:

What the hell are you talking about? You're making absolutely no sense.
