    Best Bail Out PLAN

    I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.

    Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in
    a We Deserve It Dividend.

    To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000
    bonafide U.S. Citizens 18+.

    Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman
    and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up..

    So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billon that equals $425,000.00.

    My plan is to give $425,0 00 to every person 18+ as a
    We Deserve It Dividend.

    Of course, it would NOT be tax free.
    So let's assume a tax rate of 30%.

    Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes.
    That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.

    But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.
    A husband and wife has $595,000.00.

    What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?
    Pay off your mortgage - housing crisis solved.
    Repay college loans - what a great boost to new grads
    Put away money for college - it'll be there
    Save in a bank - create money to loan to entrepreneurs.
    Buy a new car - create jobs
    Invest in the market - capital drives growth
    Pay for your parent's medical insurance - health care improves
    Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean or else

    Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+ including the folks
    who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company
    that is cutting back. And of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces.

    If we're going to re-distribute wealth let's really do it...instead of trickling out
    a puny $1000.00 economic incentive that is being proposed by one of our candidates for President.

    If we're going to do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!

    As for AIG - liquidate it.
    Sell off its parts.
    Let American General go back to being American General.
    Sell off the real estate.
    Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.

    Here's my rationale. We deserve it and AIG doesn't.

    Sure it's a crazy idea that can work.

    But can you imagine the Coast-To-Coast Block Party!

    How do you spell Economic Boom?

    I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion
    We Deserve It Dividend more than the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC .

    And remember, The Family plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.



    Ahhh...I feel so much better getting that off my chest.

    Actually, considering that 1 Billion is 1000 Million, not 1 Million Million, the actual figure comes out to $425, not $425K.

    I'll take the $ 425.00.

    It's more than I have, and it's more than they deserve.

    It doesn't do any good to keep posting it.

    My big question is; Why aren't the assets of these CEOs seized until they are cleared of all wrong doing!?

    If the IRS suspects you of tax fraud. Your bank accounts become frozen until you can prove yourself innocent. These CEOs that have caused this mess deserve nothing less!!

    Probably because our gutless elected officials know that their 'War Chests' would go dry and they would no longer recieve all the kickbacks.....

    Oh yeah, I lost a lot of money this week that could have purchased more ammo.....

    As noted in post #4, this is already running.



    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
