  1. From a guy that has been wrong about every issue since Obama was elected. I thought the bailouts were good and necessary and would save homeowners. I already know you're plan: sit back and do nothing and not talk about anything about what caused it. Funny I haven't been to this board for months and the same threads are still going. Given the mostly inane posts contained in these threads, I am well within my right to state my opinion, which I back up with facts, not denial, the angle you are coming from. Anytime you want to post counterpoints to show how am wrong I'll be sure to read them.
  2. Do you have any idea what you are talking about? What we have now is not capitalism it's corporatism. That's a big difference. I love capitalism when we had it our nation was prosperous. To blame only the Republicans is ridiculous. Clinton passed NAFTA and Obama is working on the Korean Free Trade deal Bush couldn't get through. Obama appointed the commission to privatize Social Security, just like Bush wanted to do. We should stop subsidizing companies to offshore and then pay no taxes. At this point, I would take even the Clinton era tax brackets. 15 million jobs and counting lost should b
  3. We always were part of the global community. What's not feasible is continuing these policies. It's not cutting ourselves off. We had trade before, but I guess you overlook that,when America was actually prosperous. Our trading partners have the same safeguards in place themselves. We also should not be competing with slave labor wages. That is an unfair trade advantage. That is also not building up the world, but exploiting the third world for the benefit of a privileged few, who hoard their money,hamper progress and innovation.(think alternative energy) It has nothing to do with hustling. Yo
  4. Still trying to figure it out? Krugman didn't see this coming and doesn't address any of the larger issues that got us here. In fact, he still supports most of them. The truth is never going to appear in the New York Times, which is why they are bankrupt.Until the real reasons for the lack of jobs are dealt with there will be no changes. This is what happens when you have one-way free trade agreements that are nothing more than big corporate welfare bills to encourage the race to the bottom of the wage scale. The world never was and is not now flat. We also now have a nation of monopolies an
  5. Another thread and another debate that completely misses the larger points. The drug wars in South America do contribute to the violence in Phoenix,but, that is not even half of the people caught trying to cross the border. Now, what would drive these other people, not involved with drug trafficking, to still cross our borders? Could it be the free trade agreements that are in place in their respective countries? Free trade does not build other nations up, but exploits them, which the statistics for illegal immigration into the USA, readily back up. In case you didn't notice, the EU is colla
  6. U.S. suspects Goldman tip-off on Buffett deal: WSJ http://www.marketwatch.com/story/us-suspects-goldman-tip-off-on-buffett-deal-wsj-2010-04-23-032240 LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- The U.S. government is investigating whether Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS 159.78, +0.73, +0.46%) director Rajat Gupta informed the head of the the Galleon Group hedge fund about a pending $5 billion investment in the brokerage by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.A 118,400, +120.00, +0.10%) (BRK.B 78.89, +0.21, +0.27%) in 2008, according to a Wall Street Journal report Friday. The report cited a gov
  7. Goldman's White House connections raise eyebrows WASHINGTON — While Goldman Sachs' lawyers negotiated with the Securities and Exchange Commission over potentially explosive civil fraud charges, Goldman's chief executive visited the White House at least four times. White House logs show that Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein traveled to Washington for at least two events with President Barack Obama, whose 2008 presidential campaign received $994,795 in donations from Goldman's political action committee, its employees and their relatives. He also met twice with Obama's top economic adviser,
  8. What a joke. A civil suit with a possibility of a fine? I'm sure Goldman Sachs is really scared. This attempt to look tough on Wall Street is more sad theatrics from the Obama administration, since the numbers tell such a vastly different story. Make sure to tune into CNBC where former Goldman Sachs Jim Kramer or former Goldamn Sachs/Citi Group publicist Erin Burnett will tell you how this is no big deal and Goldman is not criminal in destroying the U.S economy. It was those damn poor people and families who wanted to own a home. Or maybe tune into MSNBC so Alan Greenspan's wife,Andrea Mitchel
  9. Naomi Wolf Thinks the Tea Parties Help Fight Fascism -- Is She Onto Something or in Fantasy Land? Naomi Wolf, author of 'End of America,' talks about why she has become an improbable Tea Party darling, and if progressives can learn from the conservative activists. March 30, 2010-In her bestselling End of America, Naomi Wolf outlines the 10 warning signs that America is headed toward a fascist takeover. Using historical precedents, she explains how our government is mimicking those of Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin through practices like surveillance of ordinary citizens, restricting the pres

  11. Senate votes to extend Patriot Act Democrats retreat from adding new privacy protections to the law http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/35571223/ns/politics-capitol_hill WASHINGTON - The Senate voted Wednesday to extend for a year key provisions of the nation's counterterrorism surveillance law that are scheduled to expire at the end of the month. In agreeing to pass the bill, Senate Democrats retreated from adding new privacy protections to the USA Patriot Act. The Senate approved the bill on a voice vote with no debate. It now goes to the House. Woody Guthrie~ All You Fascists Bound T

Climategate U-turn as scientist at centre of row admits: There has been no global warming since 1995 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1250872/Climategate-U-turn-Astonishment-scientist-centre-global-warming-email-row-admits-data-organised.html The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information. Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers. Profes
  13. So that we are clear you are utterly ignorant of the history of this country and the Republican party,here are some quotes and speeches. This is what some of the most notable REPUBLICAN Presidents and founders had to say about corporate power. Funny, it sounds nothing like Glenn Beck,Sarah Palin,Ron Paul,Alex Jones or the Tea Party. “Now, this means that our government, national and State, must be freed from the sinister influence or control of special interests. ... We must drive the special interests out of politics. That is one of our tasks today. Every special interest is entitled to jus
