The country has spiraled into a severe economic crisis in the past few days. Lehman Brothers went belly up. Merrill Lynch got bought out. Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and AIG got bailed out. Now there’s word that Washington Mutual could also go under, and that the FDIC may soon run out of money to insure accounts.
So how did this happen? What brought us to this terrible economic precipice? Who is to blame for lending out billions upon billions of dollars to unqualified homeowners and didn’t have the cash to back it up? Who played Russian roulette with pension funds and stockholder nest eggs? Who is at the root of the potential total collapse of the American financial market?
WHO DID THIS TO US?
I fucking knew it.
