Terrorists are pissed about the bailout because it is helping the economy. That's not what THEY want. The problem that most people have now is that they don't realize what is actually there for them to use! Most people don't realize how much money there is out there. During economic times like this, there is more money to be had than ever. Because of the bailouts and economy, lenders are bending over backwards to bail you out too. Believe it or not, there is people getting tons of cheap money nowdays to start businesses, buy homes, pay off debt, and more. Bailouts for Everyone
