We need to try anything right now. We already know the Democrats couldn't reduce the debt. It is time for a new approach. Right now doing something is better then what the Democrats did, which was doing nothing.

not short selling.
NAKED short selling.
.
a complicated Wall Street transaction known as "naked short selling" in which billions of dollars have been made by manipulating the market with huge bets placed on falling stock prices.
the end of paper stock certificates being physically transferred -- an event made possible 30 years ago by computers -- results in shares being sold electronically that are never actually delivered. Deals are being constructed based on "borrowed" stock with share counts much higher than the real amount.

Of course repubullies want to get rid of this law, they want Wall Street and its "too big to fail" banks to cause another 2008 disaster by eliminating all regulations that stop them from their gambling fun. They don't give a damn about how their actions and deregulations effects you and me. Maybe a total destruction of the U.S. and its economy IS what they really want. They could then kill all our constitutional rights as citizens and have a total oligarchy of the rich. Mitt is their favorite for a reason.
Time to read Naomi Kline's and Naomi Wolf's books.

Obama has violated more Constitutional rights then any President up to now. He, and Holder still have to do away with the second Amendment. I am so glad the Supreme Court ruled on that one a couple years ago, but that won't keep Obama, and Holder from trying to violate that one as well.

This is a sign of the pillaging to follow. Only a Mad Man champions a market with no regulations. A run on the banks could cure this nonsense.

The vulture capitalist and his Stepford wife? I guess she does have a lot more experience supervising the household staff than Michelle does. I wonder, did they have different maids at each house or did they bring the help with them? Willard has a lot more experience firing people, a job he really likes, than the President who has always focused on hiring.

He cannot do away with the second amendment, but he an Holder created Fast, and Furious to curtail, and restrict how many guns Americans can buy, they tried to do the same with Ammo, but that didn't work either. They are just looking for an opening to gun grab. Give them 4 more years, and another Supreme Court Justice, and your guns are gone. Why do you think we have fast, and furious?

Is this what they're telling you on Republican T.V this week?

You're pretty gullible!

You can't do much anything to prevent his four more years, other than whine and stomp your feet in defeat. Romney has the chance of a ice cube in hell of beating Obama in Nov.

"Deficit reduction," ROTFLMAO! What disingenuous BS!

All you need to know about the Party of Lies, otherwise known as the ReTHUGlican Party, is that any bill or policy they oppose will be called "job-killing" (even though they have no intention of creating jobs) and if they're looking for an excuse to kill measures they hate such as Dodd-Frank, they will call it "deficit reduction," even though they don't give a damn about reducing the deficit, either.

ANYONE who votes ReTHUGlican is either pig-ignorant, or the enemy of America's future. Period.

Which ones would you say he's violated? More than one, please, and show us HOW.

Needless to say, Obama's proposed NOTHING which would violate or "do away with" the Right's precious 2nd Amendment, the only ont that counts (other than the First Amendment, and then only when it applies to Righties).
