Should THE FED Bailout UO?

    Our economy is in the tank...we're in hyper-inflation.

    We have out-of-control greed and rampant cheating, skirting of the rules.

    Our government enacts policies without due diligence and without a shred of accountability.

    We have special interest lobbiests who push forward personal agendas without concern for the good of the overall game.

    Greed, bad decisions, poor planning and insufficient oversight have us in dire straights.

    UO is the perfect candidate for a FED bailout!

    All those burned-out houses in Luna are actually failed foreclosures.

    Ever since they nerfed the bags of sending my annual gold salary has been significantly less. With the cost of armor and artifacts going through the roof and all my neighbor's houses falling or catching on fire, it makes me very worried about how I will make it through this economic crisis. Something needs to be done about this!

    ROFL!!! :lol:

    The bailout isn't gonna work anyways. The reason these lenders and banks are going under is because the people who have the loans can't make the payments. After the bailout the same said people still wont beable to make the payments. None of the money is going to the people so how is that helping us. After the bailout the loans are still there and still need to be paid. The people still wont beable to pay. The money should goto the people like the $600 stimulis payment we all got at the beginning of the year. But we need more than $600 dollars. I can solve the unemployment problem. But the government wont do my idea because it would **** other countries off.
