  •  I knew actor Craig T. Nelson (0+ / 0-)

    was a Conservative but I ASSUMED (ass of me) the issues wouldn't come up on Jay Leno last night -- WRONG!!!

    He says no one asked him about the bank bailouts so he thinks he shouldn't pay his taxes. He spouted the "TARP hasn't worked" and "government doesn't do anything right" blah blah blah. I had to turn the channel because it was so maddening. I really do tire of generalizations of TARP -- which has had some good and bad effects and results -- and blaming government as a whole. I really do. There are amazing members at the state and federal level of government who do their damnedest to get work done.

    I think Mr. Nelson needs to be reminded that we are a representational Democracy and that we vote for people to make the bail-out types of decisions. We don't get asked because that's not our system. And he also needs to read this article.
