    Since most of the too big to fails are technically insolvent and bankrupt, this is no surprise. Just another way to keep the ponzi scheme going just like giving China WTO status in 2000 so they could buy US Treasuries to prop up our dollar.

    I'm sure which ever Marx brother wins the presidency this year will look out for our best interests.

    You're starting to sound like a one note symphony. Talking up your guy's a losing battle, so you talk down rveryone else.

    We are all allowed a minuscule amount of power to decide who gets elected. That's not fun when you picked a team likely to lose, but somebody has to win.

    We've had Santander (Spain) and Royal Bank of Scotland (UK) taking over banks here for years and maybe others so I really don't see any new news with Red China becoming involved with purchases. Am I happy about it...no...but it's not something that doesn't already exist.

    Neither of those entities have most of our national debt under their control.'08.
