No, moron, YOU are the cause of the worldwide recession, since conservatives are the world’s village idiots. They put Bush (and the New World Order banking criminals) in power, kept him in power in spite of all his stupidity and treason, and even reelected him.
I wonder why you didn’t mention how superior their countries were before you scum attacked them?
Denmark better than the U.S.
Which Is Better: Government or Private Spending?
At one extreme is Denmark, where well over half of all spending is done by government, and yet its people report themselves the happiest in the world.

You clearly don’t understand the causes of the recession. One of the causes can be traced back to Jimmy Carter. The recession isn’t the result of any single cause. It’s a culmination of many causes. Some of the causes can be laid at the feet at Democrats, some at the feet of Republicans and some of the causes are the result of actions of the public.

The most often overlooked cause was the gutting of the Glass-Steagall Act. The passage of the GLB act under President Clinton allows the banks to speculate with the mortgage funds. The Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 prohibited commercial banks from being involved in investment banking. This is the fuel which allowed the crash to expand as it did.

Carter passed the Community Reinvestment Act which required banks to make loans in low income areas. That forced banks to engage in the business of offering high risk loans. That caused the subprime market to expand. Clinton further expanded the Community Reinvestment Act. That accelerated the growth of sub-prime loans from $35 billion to more than $1 trillion.

Now bring the GLB Act signed by Clinton in. By gutting Glass-Steagall with the legislation it allowed the speculation. GLB was a Republican bill. Then Congress (under Democratic control) allowed Fannie May and Freddie Mack to repackage the loans and resell them on the open market, Here comes the investment speculation.

Sub-prime loans because very profitable as a result. So profitable no-doc and low-doc loans became common. The banks didn’t care, they were planning to sell the loans anyway. Potential home owners too advantage of programs which allowed them to pay interest only during an introductory period. That allowed them to buy much larger homes they couldn’t otherwise afford. We saw that with the high default rate once the introductory period was over. That introductory period also fueled the growth of sub-prime investments. Combined pressure was put on housing supply driving the price of home to artificially high sales prices.

Then it all came to an end. Housing values decreased as much as 50% leaving many home owners under water and millions of homes unsellable unless someone was willing to incur substantial losses. Because of the greatly reduced value communities were left with a dwindling tax base.

There are many causes beyond this point including the devaluation of the dollar. No one single cause could have triggered the event.

Who’s at fault? Democrats, Republicans, people trying to make a quick profit “flipping” real estate and people attempting to live beyond their means. You choose to blame an imaginary new world order.

I answered your post, but the Nazi-Republican moderator kicked me off.
THIS IS A WARNING. As I've said many times before, the Fed stockholders bought our mainstream medis in 1985, and it's only a matter of time before Topix is also tightly controlled.
We've all seen numerous posts by many people who have complained about their posts disappearing.
When my links (PROOF OF WHAT I CLAIM) disappeared, I started using this:(next post) before every link, so someone could at least tell me and I could replace it.
This sick Nazi Topix moderator is so afraid of the truth that my entire post disappeared.
I've seen terrible posts get through, so it's a lie when they post:
"Please refrain from posting profanity or offensive material.
Be polite. Inappropriate posts may be removed by the moderator."
What the Nazi moderators find offensive is the TRUTH. They didn't find any problem with your Republican name-calling though, did they?
We need to all make a commitment that, when we lose free speech on Topix completely, we'll stop using it, and those who don't must never click on any ad.
You're not American if you don't value free speech.
The Nazi-Republican moderator? You’re funny.

The moderator isn’t afraid of truth, the moderator apparently doesn’t like your nasty tempered ignorance.

EVERY intelligent person knows what I’m talking about. Conservative idiots don’t because that would be too much like WORK, to have to read and think for themselves. They’re so lazy they just want to be told what to think, so simple-minded that they can’t conceive of any other way of thinking, and so arrogant they actually think they’re right. For example, you said nobody knows what I was talking about - how can you be that stupid? How would you think you’re speaking for everybody? Use your brain for once.
So, as far as your requests:
1. You wouldn’t believe anything I say.
2. I don’t have time to explain it for everybody who doesn’t get it.
What I do, is to refer people to a site where they can find plenty of links to sites created by intelligent people who have done the work.

Funny, it’s the lazy left supported by the hard working conservatives.

So you've been promoting a better plan, eh? To whom? Topix bloggers? That did us a lot of good now didn't it? I'm sure our politicians are on here right now hoping you grace us with your intellect.
You don't have to respond if you're busy looking out your back window for those black helicopters. We know what your state of mind is here on Topix. LOL!
Of course it didn't do any good with conservative posters who are too gutless, lazy and stupid to fight back, and that includes contacting their politicians and making their demands known.
You assume everybody else is a loser, but many have spoken out, and politicians are responding.
But that's not what you want to hear. You want to brag that poor-little-you are helpless but have no problem attacking those who expose your cowardice.

No, most people are missing the big picture.
Yes, mistakes were made by many people, but all those mistakes worked together to produce the Recession.
The first most obvious mistake is assuming that all those political and financial experts are idiots who didn’t see the obvious.
You also have to ignore the fact that bankers, who traditionally have only issued mortgages to those who qualified so they weren’t stuck with homes, suddenly all decided to push those who weren’t qualified into buying homes.
Then you have to assume that bankers wanted homes that were producing NO income instead of almost all interest income from mortgage payments. Also, that the poor little bankers just couldn’t see the benefit of selling those empty homes at a loss rather than taking a complete loss by bulldozing them to the ground.
Plus you have to assume they wanted empty homes, which meant they had to pay the taxes and insurance, they had to try to sell them, and they wanted to take the losses.
You have to assume they weren’t expecting the taxpayers to bail them out of their stupidity, greed, and other felonies, and that they‘d get away with huge financial rewards for their crimes.
You have to assume they didn’t know that they wouldn’t be prosecuted while the rest of us have to live in fear of being prosecuted for crimes they say we INTENDED to commit.
This is just a part of the list of stupidities the idiot masses believe.
The fact is that all that is evidence that the Recession came from those who own us.
Only the idiot masses would ignore the New World Order, even though their heroes, Bush Daddy and Bush Jr. TOLD THEM repeatedly to accept it.
Why? Because if Republicans and T(Treason) Party morons accepted that, they’d have to accept the fact that they’re fighting like he11 for traitors, and WORST OF ALL, THAT LIBERALS WERE RIGHT!
The idiot masses would rather die than face reality.

You claim most people are missing the big picture yet you decided the blame was to be borne solely by Republicans. And in your reply you claim the liberals were right. They weren’t, in fact the left took the first steps in the direction of collapse.

The conservative's lies were allowed, but the liberal's truth was deleted by the moderator.
Conservatives just can't fight the truth, so they have to make it go away, or deny reality.
The proof is that it disappeared on the Politics forum, but still exists on the Top Stories forum.

Yes, most people are totally ignorant of the existence of the Fed stockholders and their crimes of treason, and assume it’s part of the federal government. They’re too lazy to check it out, and conservatives refuse to think for themselves. Without that basic info, they are totally clueless airheads.
The Fed is all about exterminating people and promoting greed. The Republican idiot masses are all about spitting on the homeless, promoting civil war, and promoting the greed of the Elite, even though it destroys their own families financially.
AGAIN, the entire Recession was based on fraud and treason at the top, and it could have been stopped if the Traitor Bush Jr. had just signed an Executive Order, but he was promoting the New World Order, just like his da-da.

The conservative's comments were so far from polite it was ridiculous, yet they're still there.
I’m often angry and verbose, yet my comments aren’t deleted -- except when I inform the public about treason and some anal conservative scumbag just can’t take reality and wants to play mommy-daddy for conservative liars who bytch endlessly about suffering under a nanny state.
Conservatives prove repeatedly that they have no moral code, it’s a system that changes depending on whether it’s a conservative or liberal being talked about.

You want legislation based on "feel good" politics with disregard to personal freedoms that require a moral code of self responsibility.
