What ever happened to failure? The businesses you speak of should have gone through bankrupt chapter 7,11,13 and would have been fine. But no, that was not the case. They were bailed out by successful business/taxpayers and have yet to repay the loans contrary to what the mainstream media has inundated the public with. As for the federal reserve, it was not in the constitution and was created by who? Democrats in congress. We should buy what we can afford and leave it at that. Not print money whenever our congress feels the need. It not only deflates our currency but depletes our security as a nation as well!!
