    also, this is comforting...

    The two jets are Gulfstream 650 planes billed as the "fastest," "widest" and "most comfortable" "private jet ever with superior cabin amenities, an optional stateroom, and 12 interior designs to choose from," according to ABC News, which revealed the purchase.

    As the tears splash against my keyboard...as my mind races, attempting to catch up with your wisdom...I am left here, with a sense of wonder. How could logic have been missed by the masses for so long? Why have we all not heard the call of your wise gray cells before?

    I, personally, am glad to have such a harbinger of truth in this world of partisan spin. YOU sir, are truly a breath of fresh air to those who search the world wide web for a voice....

    you ARE that voice, the one.

    Your wrong, totally wrong, it was Blarney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Bubba Clinton. Oh wait i forgot about Jimmy Carter and the Dem congress from two years ago, that caused this mess. Theres plenty of blame to go around. Don't be stingy and selfish with your finger pointing. :rolleyes:


    But seriously you would think that these guys would learn, from oh last week for example with AIG. :confused:

    Brilliant post, well thought out and researched.. the reason he has to fly this way is for command and control capabilities wherever he is.. see Bush after 9-11... this are decisions made to protect him and the country.

    Two things...JP Morgan is one of the only well run firms and they were forced to take the TARP money. I think they should buy the jets.

    They will be paying back the 25 billion the government forced on them before they buy the jets.

    JPMorgan to Repay TARP Money Before Buying Jets - DealBook Blog - NYTimes.com

    Also, Gulfstream is a US company that sells US made products. They have 9000 US employees that they have been able to continue to employ with only small layoffs. I think that if JP Morgan pays back my your our money they should be able to buy those jets.

    don't tell me whats profound or not..........what's profound is your failure to recognize sarcasm or the ability to separate true opinion from satirical ones...........it is because of your bias

    OH!....its all making sense. See people ... what Tanked is doing here is a bit of reverse dramatic irony. The joke is on the reader, as his posts are pure sarcasm. This pretty much invalidates all of his posts in a single statement (quoted above) as actual opinion or fact. He actually knows more than the reader, and until now...has been shading his sacrasm from us all.

    man, you are truly breaking the rules and crossing all literary boundaries. I applaud your strength and courage in these truly inspiring posts.

    Oh captain, my captain....




    note to the reader: this post is ALSO pure sarcasm.

    I saw this report last night, and the company is not buying these jets with bailout money apparently. They have planned this for after they have repaid the $25 billion they recieved from the gubmit.

    Note to Tanked as usual.....


    THIS is how you present an opposing view on a posted subject that presents a stance using logic and facts.


    Note to RW...

    at this point...even if this is true....with out 24 hour news cycle and population conditioned to jump to conclusions, I doubt people will be able to grasp this. The masses will just see it as rich, greedy corporate execs living high on the hog we are funding. I also read last night that JP was almost forced to take this bailout money. How does that make any sense?
