Give Everyone a $10,000,000 loan!

This article was posted on ZH by a poster and I thought it was an article that is very telling about where we are headed.

The author is Sheila Bair who was the chairman of the FDIC until just recently.

Writing something that clearly mocks the banking system that she was recently a part of demonstrates that not all players are agreeing with the FED's actions. Possibly more important, by writing this in The Washington Post, she is spreading the idea that banks are getting free money to many people. Once people start to wake up to the inequality of our banking system, change will follow.

I am OK with the idea of loaning everyone $10 million each.

IF I get the first loan! I would so jump into PMs..........

Heck, why a 10mm dollar loan? Why not just hand over 10mm dollars to all of us like they do to the banks and other nefarious people?
