I dunno about you, but I'm getting pretty pissed off at all the money that I, as a taxpayer, am having to shovel out to cover the losses of irresponsible Wall Street giants, now estimated at up to $1 trillion. I sure didn't get a chance at all the profits made by these firms when they were flying high, making billions in fees on loans they knew they shouldn't have been making.
These bailouts are wrong, period. They are doing them because our entire economy is based on a sham of fiat currency and debt, and I understand the desire to keep the balls in the air as long as possible. But it is criminal to set up scenarios where private companies can make risky moves, keep the profits when they succeed, and get public bailouts when they fail.
