I know, I know I don't have the proper educational papers to state this and I lack the indebth understanding of the total picture of this economic downfall, frankly I don't care. But I do gave a few suggestions. First every person who receives a check in the United States has to but United States Savings Bonds equal to 3% of that check. That way we pay off the loans the Oman is setting up and we the people get the interst on those trillions. A win win for Americans and a stick in the face to Oman and China. Second all home loan principal amounts are cut by 33% and you can refi at 1%. This is open for 6 months. That gives every working, home owning American money in his checking account that will be used to purchase a different home or items they need. All fuel costs fixed for two years at 1.50 a gallon for gas and the same for fuel.
If you have any better ideas fire them up, the fools in Washington think that printing a few trillion will fix every thing, however after Christmas the bills will come in and you are the Santa that Gets To Pay Them.
