Matt Tabaii (or something like that) wrote a series of articles regarding the "global" meltdown which hurt everyone including our pissy little country at the bottom of the world. He writes in an accessible vein that the common man can understand and get some form of grasp on the sheer greed of the BIG monetary institutions that care not a whit for the human condition ....... scumbags from the top down to the lowliest trader,knowingly ruining peoples lives under the auspices of profit at all costs. The reason I tend to have an interest in this complete mess that changed the power vacuum of the planet ....... our present traitorous Prime Minister (who is looking like being re-elected this year) made his millions as a commodities trader for Merrill Lynch,the heap of shit !..... hey,as the U.S writhed in the throes of meltdown (as those at the top liked to call the common man being tipped on the street ....committing suicide etc) who was buying up Government Bonds ? No ?....one small hint then ......... very inscrutable lot ... who now own around 80% of the U.S.A.!!!!!!! Try and find pictures of Obama with their leaders...... in the right light you can just see the strings attached to him !
That's why you need government regulation. We turned out backs on the lessons learned from the Great Depression. Capitalism, if lead to its own devices causes boom bust cycles and if taken to the extreme causes many injustices. This was true before the Great Depression.

The Great Depression was so devastating that even the people who ran our financial intuitions at the time were affected, not only financially, but due to the mass misery caused and social upheaval it caused. This led to laws and regulations that prevented it from happening again. Over time we kept peeling back the rules and regulations ... if a little less regulation is good, more must be even better, right?

The world has also changed and the financial industry is more complex than it was now. We probably need additional rules and safe guards. Maybe it will take another Great Depression for people, including people in the industry, to see the need for this. Even after the recession they want weak reform. I have no faith in our politicians from either party. They are ALL controlled by lobbyists with their own short term self-interests.

I don’t have a party. I’m independent, but I'll tell you what I believe to be best:
Rather than more and more and more government handouts that just keep people poor and incentive poor decision making that leads to people being poor, outside of a fairly basic safety net, I prefer directing resources into programs that increase opportunity for people. Giving someone handouts doesn’t increase opportunities for them. It just makes their life better in poverty. I’d rather get people out of poverty.
It's been my experience that 100 percent of the people that say this are getting some type of government assistance. I'm not accusing you of getting government assistance, but that has been my experience

I think they are both bad Presidents, actually. I also don't think Obama is a socialist. A poor leader; yes; a bad President; yes.

That wouldn't have quiet the effect you intend. If you post a well thought out post like that, they won't even think it is coming from a dumb a$s troll like you.

It'll never fly. Regulation? Ahh holes like Craine think we are to overly regulated as it is. They want less government, though he does like to fly on commercial flights and drive on roads and highways so I'm not quite understanding why he harps about regulation. Anyway, nice try

I don't see anything wrong with encouraging people to work for a living. I think they are much better off and have more money. It just irritates me the number of people who are living on government assistance that want everybody else to get a job. Kinda like- "You go get a job you sorry sunofabich er they'll cut my check". Of course they are always completely entitled to their welfare.

Of course now I'm not talking about social security here. I'm a firm supporter of social security even though is a socialist type program created by liberal democrats I think its the best government program in the history of the world. Before social security a lot of old folks starved to death when they couldn't work anymore. If you're one of them people faking or exaggerating a disability to draw benefits of course that would be different. Some conservatives say a lot of people gonna have to die in their early seventies to keep the dam thing solvent or else we'll have to cut every bodies checks ten percent in 2035. And of course anybody made it to eighth grade knows most people draw out ten times more than they paid in but be that as it may at the end of the day its a fine program

@ the current rate I would have to live to be 82 years old to draw out what I put in - not counting interest. "Self employed" makes a difference. I paid
both 1/2's.

Hey big boy, be very careful when testifying in congress for overstepping your executive powers what you say or you could be held in contempt of congress and your pension fund could be defunded and that would really
pizz Michelle off.
LMAO!!!

PS: You know she's got use to living the life of luxury and traveling the world at tax payer expense. Spending $ 3,500 per night and more
just for herself. You mess things up now and she'll cut your dothingy off,
then you can't have as much fun with the boys.
Still LMAO!!!
