Allen Greenspan suggests nationalizing banks

What source are you talking about? All I see is a bunch of left-wing blogs discussing possibilities and theories. That hardly constitutes proof of violating tax law. I live in Alaska, remember? If there was an issue of tax evasion it'd be news up here.

Here -- I can use your research methods to prove things, too!

Besides, your expressed concern on this issue is downright ridiculous considering the Dem's readiness to blow of documented tax cheating by the Treasury Secretary.

Expatriate, just wondering, do you read the Anchorage paper? ABC news, WaPo, NYT aren't exactly left wing blogs, did you really read or do you just like lying.

Likewise CNN. Is everywhere a left wing blog except Faux?

JTapia yes there is a difference.

One instance is breaking the law, it's considered a felony. The other is being either irresponsible or unlucky and it's called bankrupcy. Think about it.

I still don't understand why you're so worked up over questions about her finances, when you're so willing to overlook the Treasury Secretary, Tom Daschle, et al. Those were actual cases of tax cheating, vs just people wondering about whether something might be wrong. Your credibility is pretty thin on this issue.

I know you're really struggling for a boogeyman now that Bush is gone, but you need to let go of the Palin Derangement Syndrome, too. She's our governor, not yours. She must've really posed a threat to the Dems to have so much effort still being spent trying to bury her on a national stage.

I thought that's what you would say.

There is a huge difference, that I can agree with you on.
Where I disagree is that the IRS is taking property from people for not giving them their money that they earned. Mabe they had a just reason also such as an unfortunate circumstance, irresponsibility, typo or just plain old laziness.
The folks in foreclosure are losing property(or should be) that doesn't even belong to them yet. They have that property because someone allowed them to borrow money for it. That someone is a Lender at some bank. That lender made the choice to make the loan so they should be responsible for the failure of the borrower to repay that loan and as such should enforce the provisions of the mortgage contract. It is not the Governments place to give the Lender money so they wont have to foreclose and sell the property for far less than they loaned for it. That, in turn, allows the property value to remain at an inflated level so that now, other properties are also appraised at that inflated level and no one will buy them at that price and wala....banks need bailing out again because folks that can not make their payments can't sell their home to avoid foreclosure.
I don't know how long it has been since you have read a real newspaper but these people aren't filing bankruptcy, the Government is backing their mortgages. The Government is doing exactly what caused the Banking mess to begin with.
You think about that. Tell me where I am wrong.
