What do you think will be the effect on America of the $700 billion Wall Street bailout, if it is enacted by Congress?

Chuck Rolles


Hopefully it’ll eventually solve the credit mess that we’re in. I don’t know how long it’ll take.

I have no idea what any of this means. I read somewhere that the Dow drop that we experienced on Monday [Sept. 29] is a 7 percent overall drop in the market’s value, and in 1987 the market experienced a 20 percent drop … and I don’t even remember that. So I don’t know … I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. The whole thing is such voodoo, it seems to be such a facade.

That’s a big question. I don’t know what it’s gonna do. I think it’ll possibly help us for a little while, and maybe make the credit avenues more available to people, so people can continue with their lives and stay in their homes.

I don’t know what’s going to happen. Hopefully things will be better … but they need to be very clear on how they’re going to do it, who’s going to take care of it.

I think the country is going to be in a better place over the next couple of years, and I hope it doesn’t set a precedent for future bailouts. I think it’s a lesser of evils.
