Most American tax payers could not give a definition of the term "opportunity cost". Just as most Americans could not tell you what al-Queda was, prior to 9/11, 2001.

The growing number of government loan guarantees and bailouts of failed corporations and financial institutions is nothing short of a conspiracy between elected politicians and wealthy special interest power brokers to steal tax payer's dollars without representation.
