I'm getting the feeling that someone in the Bush administration saw this commercial:

...and decided they kinda liked the idea of " The largest transfer of wealth in the history of mankind". It has a nice ring to it, no?

The 700 billion figure is right there.

* Talk me down - please! *

That's such a large amount of money, I have no concept of just what all it could do instead of helping the rich folks who screwed their companies up. If the govt bails them out, they will probably get the nice fat bonuses, they're used to getting. So irritating..and frustrating.

I mean I've zero problem with people aiming to go green... hey that's great... but THAT guy?

Yep, the same. He's building a giant wind farm out west - I think in TX.

I think it's proof that the markets don't take care of everything - it's thirty years late and quite a few dollars short, but finally those who can are taking the road that leads us out of this mess.
