Meanwhile, you Bocajews have nothing in response except bigotry against the Roman Catholic Church, while worshipping all homosexuals except Roman Catholic priests.
What a terrible setback for the Australian people; yes, he's open for business, he'll sell the country to the Chinese.
They now have universal single payer healthcare and a high minimum wage; and I think free university education; not sure, but don't think he can mess with that. His views on women are sexist and backward, like most rightwingers who are so threatened by women.
Yeah

Paulson admits deregulation has failed us all

By MarketWatch
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)-- You know things are very very bad on Wall Street when a guy like Henry Paulson -- Treasury secretary, solid Republican, and former Goldman Sachs CEO -- joins the crowd calling for more regulation over the financial markets.
Paulson spared no one in his criticism Thursday of the excesses of deregulation that has now created the worst global financial crisis in a generation, threatening the health of the U.S. economy, the savings of millions of Americans, and the survival of some of the biggest financial institutions in the world.
Wall Street and Washington both failed big time, he said. Wall Street invented new ways to make money by selling securities so complicated that no one could really follow which shell the pea was under. Fortunes were made on the paper Wall Street sold.
At the same time, Washington's watchdogs were dozing, tranquilized by the false assurance that Wall Street would police its own.
It's been obvious for years now that Wall Street could not be trusted, and finally official Washington agrees. The markets need a tougher cop to make sure that money-center banks, investment banks, credit-rating agencies, hedge funds, mortgage brokers and the rest don't let their own greed and arrogance ruin it for the rest of us.
"Regulation needs to catch up with innovation," Paulson said, and he was backed up by the rest of President Bush's working group on financial markets, including Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Securities and Exchange Commissioner Chris Cox. Not a commie among them.
The housing bubble wasn't a flaw; it was a predictable outcome of a system that rewarded smart people small fortunes for conjuring up ways to persuade people to borrow more than they could ever hope to pay back. All the profits were taken off the table quickly, but the staggering costs are only now being paid by homeowners, shareholders, builders and the rest of society.
Paulson's proposals won't necessarily prevent a recurrence, but they are a humble recognition that the centerpiece of two decades of Republican economic policy have failed.
-- Rex Nutting, Washington bureau chief
Republicans have not strayed from their previous agendas other than to increase the probabilities of failure.
Yeah

Right wing nuts support austerity. Their worship for the 1% has produced dire consequences which these buffoons still seek to expand.
Buffet stated that we here in the USA are in a race, war within ourselves. War of the classes and his class is winning ! Want to know the score?

After the Mid East foreign policy disaster, maybe you need to stop the bluster and concern yourself with who is your candidate.
lol! Why? You people are already speculating who the non con candidate will be.

The funny thing is you can't talk about YOUR candidate! Obviously you don't have anyone better!

Let's start with equal rights for men in child custody cases.
Sure. What about it? I went through the procedure and ended up with all the kids and the house. Other males that are responsible conscious and rational have done the same. Maternal rights of the mother is strong as it should be as it is promoted by natures evolutionary trait for the survival of our species. Most males fail the empathy test and or several other prerequisites. When both parents fail then the child becomes the awarded to the state. So what is your Point?

The right wing nuts need to change history is even funnier when you consider the information is already out there, but they refuse to believe it and instead, substitute their opinions!
