So the "blowback is here"? Is this the fabled "angry liberals" we have heard so much about?
Are far as "blowback", what did you all the house cleaning that happened in congress in 2010? Seemed like blowback to me, and not the liberal kind.
Obviously you care nothing about others. Have your read your hate-everyone posts lately?

Yes, the elections were a result of Obama playing entirely too nicely with the likes of your Messiahs. You know, the crackpots of the rightwing.

The GOPOX is splitting into two. It is fun to watch the shouting.

SUX, NRH, and people like you are the problem, You would both rather call names and insult people than work together for a common goal. Unfortunatly there are way too many out there like you. I can remember a time when both parties were civil and worked together. Not anymore. So I guess Defiant has it figured out, let you extremist fight it out then send the survivors to the middle east to fight it out with those extremist, then those of us who are willing to work together can fix our country and get on with life.
Patting yourself on the back are you. Must take some really long arms.

What, exactly, have you done lately? All you do is whine and moan about how much better a person you are than anyone else and then...ooops...wait...that is all you do.

So all we need is to pass this magic jobs bill, and all of our ills will be cured? I can see it now, spend a ton of borrowed money to fund green jobs (Solyndra, Fisker, etc) millions of shovel ready jobs (turtle tunnels, squirrel bridges, and whale mating studies, etc) and on and on, and all of our economic woes are cured! Wow, why didn't we try that before?....wait, stimulus bill what?
Extremist much?

Solyndra = Bush administration fast track
Fisker = Paul Ryan would have had them draw down the entire amount immediately without meeting benchmarks. Paul Pathetic Dork Ryan really earns his economic crank status.

So you are against wildlife bridges across busy highways? This is what you freak out about while ignoring Bush's $3 TRILLION in ineptly run wars based on lies?

Texan, that is where we disagree. You feel that the only way for the auto industry to survive was with govt help. I disagree. Would GM and Chrysler have suddenly vanished if they had not recieved a tax payer bailout? No. They would have gone through the bankruptcy process, restructered their debt, and continued on. Would there be some pain with it? Absolutely, but there was plenty of pain associated with the bailout as well. Plants still closed, jobs were still lost, and our national debt climbed, and none of the underlying problems were solved.
Dont drink the Kool Aid on Bain. And blaming Romney for outsourcing jobs is a bit simplistic. Obama's own business advisory group includes several CEO's with a long histroy of outsourcing. Im not defending the practice,(I think it is a huge cause of our econominc troubles), but dont blindly blame one person or party with doing it beacuse all major companies do it.
As far as "unamerican" goes, I think supporting a govt takeover of two major companies and 1/6 of our economy (health care) is unamerican. Its a huge step towards socialism, which goes against everything our country was founded on.
And, compared to what Sux throws around, I dont think Troll is to bad. You should read the filth they post.
How would the auto industry have restructured their debt.

Go ahead, lay it out.

I'm not an economist, nor do I work for the auto industry, so I dont know step by step how they would have restructured their debt. But I do know roughly what bankruptcy does and that it is used everyday, by individuals as well as business. Im sure that it would have involved restructuring contracts, obligations and debts to allow the company to keep functioning and come out of the process in better shape then when they started it.
People bashed Bush for TARP 1 and the term "to big to fail", but that is precisly what the auto bailout was, a corporate handout of tax payer funds (which just means more national debt).

I almost shot coffee out of my nose when I read this. This is one of the funniest things you have ever posted.
If wasting tax payer funds (just more debt, so its not real money right?) on a squirrel bridge or a turtle tunnel is good fiscal policy, then this must be bizarro world. How many "shovel ready" jobs did those projects create? Its a good thing that we just borrowed more money and added to our ever increasing debt (16T and climbing) so those cute little animals could safely cross the road.
You are to funny troll, keep it up. At least you good entertainment.

You complaining about my "hate filled posts" is pretty much the perfect definition of hypocrisy. Referring to Ann Romney as a ****faced *****, referrences to Romenys religion, calling Ryan a punk, etc, is the very definition of "hate filled post". Not to mention some of your other gems like "Republiscum", "Republithug", and many many more just as bad, or worse. Your hate is practically dripping out of the screen and you are nothing but the defintion of a hate filled poster, or posters. Heck, you even slam the people in here who might agree with you.
I think we all saw the "angry liberals" during the Occupy rallies and I think the majority of the country was turned off by your peers. Pooping on cop cars, riots, looting, murders, drug overdoses, rapes, child endangerment, etc, etc, etc. Quite the way to prove that your cause represents the 99%.
C'mon troll(s). Go back to your handlers and tell them they need to tone down the hate a bit in your DNC talking point memos. It's not working to well.

"Solyndra = Bush administration fast track"
Wrong. The loan to Solyndra was reviewed by Bush staffers and was going to be denied but Obama's staffers approved it and even fast tracked it, against recomendations from DOE staffers that it be cancelled because of several red flags. That 500 million dollar boondoggle sits squarely on Obamas shoulders, and no one elses, despite the lies you try and push.
And if you are ok with our govt borrowing money from one country to give to another countries industry and financing jobs overseas, while doing nothing more than adding to our own ever increasing debt, then you are delusional.

Obama has and is moving us forward at an accelerating rate. Observe the markets of Sept.6 2012.
Observe who he rebuilt the infrastructure to hold Bankers to strict derivatives regulations. Banker’s lobbied with over $200 million! to stop the Obama, Elizabeth Warren and Frank Dodds regulations from being implemented. Republicans are still seeking to deregulate them. Expose what their goals are and its NOT for our Main Street USA.
Elizabeth goes nose to nose right in the face with Wall Streets tycoons. Our lady tiger that has the Tycoons appreciate fear. She is not a BROWN nosing follower of the herded sheep.
2016 she will be a contender for president my predication. Observe her speech at the convention http://youtu.be/zNcbg1EU_bI U-tube speech.
This is one small example of how Obama will seek to continue to move us forward, up and out of the chaos of the republicans mandates.
Fiscal Year{ FY } in politics is from October to September. Bush presented Obama with a 9% constricting economy. Bush received a 5.6 Trillion surplus to budget debt from Clinton. So lets take that and subtract what Bush debts were, that he handed over to Obama. Surplus of $5.6 Trillion plus all debts incurred since October 2008 to January 2009 and we come with a 5.6% reduction in debt to GDP. In 3.3 years Obama is at 15.1% to debt of GDP, from a 20.7% increase to debt by Bush and going rapidly down into the abyss.
Stimulus plan to revitalize the middle class produced a beneficial return on investment. We have seen an impressive recovery in the equity markets from Bush’s stock markets lost of 14 years of gains. Markets had retraced the lows back to 1996 in less than 17 months. Greatest lost ,in market value, in our Nations history. Obama’s actions helped restore equity markets post a gain of 105% through April of 2011. During Obama’s first 27 months in office.
Making up most of the losses with gains to the DOW of 17.2%, S&P 500 25.3% and the NASDAQ 31.7%. Compare this to say Reagan first 3.3 years in office Reagan’s gains to ; DOW 6.86%, S&P 500 6.16%, NASDAQ 7.02%. Obama has surpassed most of his predecessors, including Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan!
Stimulus also stopped the decline in corporate profits that started under George W. Bush. Stimulus helped produce an increase of 22% per year in the first two years.
Obama has had the slowest growth in spending of any President in the past 60 years: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...
Latest up date to Markets; The Fed pledged Thursday to buy $40 billion in mortgage-backed bonds every month from large banks and other dealers in an effort to help free up capital and spur lending. The move is also expected to help push down mortgage rates, already near record lows, to further stimulate the housing market. The central bank said it would continue buying until the unemployment rate, which stood at 8.1 percent in August, decreases significantly.
Wall Street continued to cheer the news. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which surged more than 206 points after the Fed announcement Thursday -- climbed another 53 points Friday to 13,593, its highest closing since December 2007. Global markets also reacted positively: the Hang Seng index in Hong Kong surged 2.9 percent, the Japanese Nikkei 225 index shot up 1.8 percent, and the British FTSE 100 rose more than 1.6 percent.
Obama actually did his research on Eccles who got us out of the Great Depression. Something that some on this thread can not even fathom with apprehension never mind comprehension.
First repair the stuttering engine of your vehicle before taking upon yourselves to take a journey less you find yourself stranded in a ditch. Repairing cosmetic luxuries comes latter.

Predatory Lending
Components of the forces that promote inequality are in various forms and factors. One that had not only a financial affect on the populace. One that rustled, stirred down to the foundations of our America’s core values. Once glimmering dreams of property ownership was an ultimate desire to acquire. Once it served to build and hold fast our Nation secured. Sacrificed upon the altars of inequality. Homeownership and its security of investment from the least of us to the greatest of us. Now a hallow ghost to haunt our Nation’s halls. Clouds and mist shelter our once proud beliefs of Our America. Myths begin to rise to replace the factors of our infrastructures. Security and trust lay in taters. A deep wound once again inflicted by our few lusting for their greed.
Statesman, in various arenas, sought to address the illegal activates that resulted from this predatory financing only to be vanquished by the very forces they sought to hold responsible. Heroes of the common inhabitant are few and far in between.
Georgian’s were soon to discover their efforts to rein in rampant unrestrained growth would be made short of. Once allies in consumer protection battles found themselves separated, weakened and easily defeated. Agents once with the role of calling pools of F-rated and A-rated securities are now sustaining fraudulent lending practices. Laws of the land were passed that promoted avenues to address the fraudulent or inappropriate actions.
Gladiators of the reigning few dominated the fields. S&P threatening not to rate the mortgages. Securitization denied, produces an atmosphere of insecurity to future mortgages from obtaining credit.
S&P protecting its stations of its own insecurities. Such challenges spreading through out our sovereignties’ would disrupt their “rating” diminishing their profits. S&P’s strategy proved effective. As such challenges were quickly subdued through out our sovereignties‘. Results were massive fraud and inadequate lending practices. Indebtedness to financial products exploded. Interest rates change to the despondent of our culture. Pessimistic morality flourishes in such fertile soils.
“Buyer Beware” is an old adage that is not sufficient for our technology evolved society. Regulatory measures preventing finical products from being used to promote fraudulent, abusive, deceptive, and inappropriate products.
Banker’s soon came to realize that regulations were required. Their institutions would suffer from a growing distrust of individuals in relinquishing their monetary reserves to them. Individuals were not going to stabilize a complex financial institution that they and government cold barely comprehend. Yet the Banker’s resisted provisions creating an agency to address this issue.
Dodd-Frank bill, with Elizabeth Warren establishing the architecture’s foundations, was vehemently opposed to having one so knowledgeable to manage its functions. Her sin of her fervor to pursue the construction of such an agency for consumer protection, was unforgivable. Elizabeth Warren exposing bail out investments were detrimental as an investment. Government were receiving less than 50% return on investment.{Preferred Shares} Not good ,in the Banker’s eyes, of such a formidable adversary to remain on the fields.
Promotions for deregulator measures remain to pursue, by the Banker’s at the peril of all concerned.

Sorry to hear that. I thought I was having it rough for shooting too many cast bullets through mine. Still cleaning lead out of it.

I treat mine as if it is loaded at all times, because it is always ready for dispensing door prizes for home invaders. I usually stick to dry fire and live fire at the range. It's safer.

If it wasn't for stupid people, predatory lenders wouldn't make money. Maybe instead of running a nanny state with over-regulation , the government could spend less of our money on classes to teach people how to handle their own daily lives.

Those of us who live our lives responsibly are being burdened by the fools who can't.
