Obama will go on TV stating that everything is ok, and he will talk to Putin. within 30 days we will be living in caves, eating our neighbors, and fighting in thunderdome for gasoline.

Don't forget the strongly worded letter! He'll firmly community organize their asses.

Can we do so physically? With big bulldozers?

Killdozer may still be in a evidence locker somewhere, maybe we can rent out time on it. I know more than a few guys that would love to drive big construction equipment for fun.

Heck we may even be able to recoup some of our national debt. You know, do our part to support Hope and Change!

Why is it that one of these "the peoples" isn't considered to be The People?

Because, for a most non-gun people (and a few Fudds), 'feelings', 'social justice', and 'transferrence' are more important than law.

Also; they are smarter than you, so you should just do what they say. And like it.

People don't think anymore...I was amazed when I heard people saying they wanted GM to go bankrupt. So, wipe out millions of jobs, and kill the last domestic manufacturing capacity the country has.

I'm amazed people don't know what the difference is between a business shutting down and what a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy actually does...

Chapter 11 affords the debtor in possession a number of mechanisms to restructure its business. A debtor in possession can acquire financing and loans on favorable terms by giving new lenders first priority on the business's earnings. The court may also permit the debtor in possession to reject and cancel contracts. Debtors are also protected from other litigation against the business through the imposition of an automatic stay. While the automatic stay is in place, most litigation against the debtor is stayed, or put on hold, until it can be resolved in bankruptcy court, or resumed in its original venue. An example of proceedings that are not necessarily stayed automatically are family law proceedings against a spouse or parent. Further, creditors may file with the court seeking relief from the automatic stay.

By short circuiting the process, we likely prolonged the pain and the end result will less optimal. But hey, the community organizer said it was the way to go, so fsck the process.
