ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I have followed with interest the efforts of the government to spend billions of taxpayer dollars to reward the misfeasance, malfeasance, dishonesty, incompetence and criminal conduct of Wall Street, AIG, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, auto manufacturers and everyone but the citizens. The program proposed is a reward to those who have destroyed the economy of the nation.

As this debacle has progressed, I have lost substantially in my investment and retirement accounts. I find it appalling that the perpetrators, both business and government, are rewarded, while I, as a defenseless citizen, am hurt.

Indict the thieves who have put us in this position and call for the forfeiture of their unwarranted and criminal gains. This includes both the people who have run their companies into the ground as well as the enablers in Congress who allowed Fannie and Freddie to fail.

I would appreciate having the “bailout” directed to those who have lost as a result of the acts and omissions you are determined to reward.

May God protect this country from those who are motivated by greed and incompetence.
