I realize this may sound terribly naive, but is this bailout episode fairly unusual? I can't remember another time during my life when the public was really opposed to something, and the feds just went ahead and did it anyway. Up till now, I really couldn't "see" the government actually implementing counterinsurgency against Americans, but now I can.
Can some of you old timers enlighten me? To clarify my position, I know there were riots during the Viet Nam era etc. But it wasn't as if the public wanted out of there 90-10, right?
