Zero hedge eh?

Grasping at straws isn't a sufficient description here. More like outright panic and desperation.

I think spending money demolishing abandoned shacks is an excellent way to improve investibility of an area and therefore create MORE housing, not less. Of course as a Republican you define a "house" as anything more than a cardboard box so I can see how in your eyes this would create homelessness.

Yeah right Iwog nice try. The Antifa are the show and tell part of the Democrat platform.

Thank you for the contrast. My coherent explanation that Antifa is an anarchist organization and therefore couldn't possibly share any connection whatsoever to big government Democrats and your brilliant rebuttal of "nice try."

You people are not fucking qualified to vote. You are willfully ignorant of even the most academic and easily verified facts. I keep proving it and so do you.

Antifa is a group that believes in anarchy and communism which also makes them hate all forms of government including Democrats.

Some random fuckstick moron on the internet calling Antifa "Democrats" is identical to calling Trump a Nazi.

Although it defies rational explanation, the person who posted this comment simultaneously believes that Democrats want more government while Antifa (Democrats apparently) create riots to protest for NO GOVERNMENT.

This is yet another data point which demonstrates Republicans are not qualified to vote since clearly a political force fighting for zero government can't possibly have anything in common with Democrats however in his mind they are the same thing. It's also exactly what I mean when I keep saying idiocracy has arrived.

You realize that "backfires spectacularly" and "having a big impact" aren't mutually exclusive right? Uh right?

Nice try.

Obama's policy towards banks was obvious as soon as he announced that his administration would consist of people very different than those advisors in his campaign whom he hinted would be his advisors. When Podesta asked Mike Froman of Citigroup to vet Obama's Cabinet, as we now know, thanks to Seth "Russia" Rich or whomever leaked or hacked the emails.

You could have put Elizabeth Warren, a woman who's credentials in attacking the banks is legendary, into the highest levels of a Clinton administration. At the very least, she and her substantial constituency could have modified policy to a great extent.

Instead you gave the government to Goldman Sachs.

See here's the problem and if you were honest, you'd admit it. You STILL believe Donald Trump was telling the truth when he said he'd clean the swamp. You cling to something that has already been proven false long after the election. The banks you hate so much run the shop now. Stay tuned to see what you've done.

Conspiracy to file False affidavits on countless counts should have landed people in prison.

Well since you're such an expert, maybe you can explain why the federal government and all 50 states declined to prosecute for criminal acts? But only Obama right? Cool....lets hand the government over to Goldman Sachs because fuck you.

What you did equates to making the banks president because they weren't adequately punished.

Conspiracy to sign false affidavits is definitely an offense that carries incarceration as a penalty, esp. if practiced across state lines.

It was law breaking on a massive scale that was totally pardoned for peanuts.

Actually it was prosecuted for billions of dollars. The deal with robo-signing was that no one ever disputed the validity of the huge majority of foreclosures. While i'm sure it grated upon your sensibilities, the very VERY few who were actually harmed by this practice were well compensated. Some even with a free house.

Mostly it was a crime of streamlining some very daunting red tape.

Anyway so lets say you are correct and some people should have gone to jail. Republicans are your solution now with a cabinet bought and paid for by Wall Street? Fucking brilliant.

Not punishing the crime is as bad as committing it.

You can't possibly believe this. It's an asinine statement.

So the jurors in the OJ Simpson trial are guilty of murder?

Still falls under modern history.

Except it has fuck all to do with who you vote for today which means it's a ridiculous point.

Starting with Reagan's glorious war on Grenada, a British commonwealth nation that wasn't at war with anyone, Republicans have been the party of state sanctioned international murder.

There are millions of Americans who believe this is a feature and not a bug. They don't realize how ridiculous it is.

Trump will take down every agency, every member of the press, and even every secretary in his cabinet, and anyone else he deems a threat. In the minds of his voters, this fucking idiot clown will keep credibility over everyone else. No matter how respected they are or how accurate their criticisms, Donald Trump the narcissistic twitter dipshit will always be right and everyone who opposes him will simply be fake news or worse......the enemy.

This is the sewer of American politics now.

iwog is in denial. Nobody committed any financial crimes, and we are not borrowing 700B a year 9 years after the crisis. How can you be against feudalism and not recognize that Obama's and Holder's actions after the crisis helped us get here?

Right.....it's Obama and Holder who caused it all a year after it all happened.

Fucking brilliant. Read what I wrote above. Also what crime should bankers be prosecuted for? Name it.

Are you telling me Holder couldn't find ANY banksters to prosecute 2009-2015? That in the aftermath of a financial collapse, easy prosecutions don't fall out of the sky like mana from heaven? Compare to the much smaller S&L Crisis of the 80s.

I also asked about Holder's current employer.

I'll ask you again. FOR FUCKING WHAT???????

Rating junk bonds AAA is legal. Writing liar loans is legal. Investing bank reserves in Wall Street is legal. It used to be illegal but Republicans made it legal. Shorting securities while selling them to chumps is also legal.

All the core functions of the banking meltdown were legal. All the core functions of the banking meltdown are the result of 30 years of Republican deregulation. Not only are you missing a crime, but you're assigning blame to the wrong side. Furthermore, and this adds yet another atrocity to the mountain of gross stupidity on the right, the few regulations that Democrats WERE able to implement after the crisis are now being dismantled by YOUR FUCKING REPUBLICAN PARTY!!!!

But what the hell do you care? Ego.....am I right?

So far there is no evidence, just a nothing burger. As a lawyer you should know what "judgement" is reserved for, and what "pre-judgement" leads to.

Why don't you fucking listen for once in your life. You personally supported a six-year investigation of Bill Clinton which resulted in absolutely nothing. Now the special prosecutor has been investigating Trump for about six weeks, and you're ready to claim there's no evidence?

How the hell do you know there's no evidence? What we know for sure is that every member of the Trump Administration has lied repeatedly and contradicted themselves on practically every issue connected with Russia. This isn't speculation, this isn't fake news, this is simply reality.

If you want to squeal that there's no evidence against Donald Trump when the investigation has barely started, you're not only disingenuous but you are completely blind.

Obamacare and Medicare D were both very expensive federal health care entitlement programs.

Obamacare included extensive funding. A tax on investments and increased taxes for the rich.

Medicare D included jack shit for funding and Republicans simply borrowed the money.

This is the difference between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans are stupid, incompetent children when it comes to managing the economy. Democrats are far FAR better.

You tell us what crime did Trump commit that MSM has already given him guilty verdict on in liberal public mob lynching mindset.

I think Donald Trump is guilty of sedition. I think evidence will show that Donald Trump accepted Russian help in winning the election in return for concessions. Donald Trump himself praised Putin during the convention which had many Republicans wonder what the fuck was going on.

That's what I think he's guilty of but as much as you and others like you have tried to crush this investigation, despite supporting an investigation into Whitewater that lasted 6 fucking years, stones will continue to be overturned and we'll get to the bottom of it.

As I've said before, just like the Iraq war, these sins aren't going to wash off. The damage you have personally done to your country will be on you.

One of these days you should try adding some actual content into your threads.

Democrats are the only ones who managed to balance the budget. Democrats are the only ones who actually fund expensive programs they support. Democrats are the only ones who avoid useless wars. Democrats have consistently led governments that resulted in economic expansions while Republican successes resemble the 2008 banking collapse or if you want to go back far enough, 1929.

Republicans are absolutely incompetent when it comes to leading the economy. The ONE example you morons always point to is Ronald Reagan, and he only achieved growth by deficit spending on a scale never seen prior in world history.

Seriously everything you believe is always the polar opposite of what reality actually is.

How many banksters did Eric Place Holder prosecute, and who does he work for now? hahahah

What was the crime exactly?

Anyway the lack of prosecution is certainly identical to giving them power inside the federal government. We all know that.

However this once again begs the question what the hell is Trump president for? If he can't drain the swamp but instead fills it up, if he can't make deals and instead flails helplessly like a stuck eel when congress tries to repeal Obamacare, if he can't repeal NAFTA and instead supports it with no more than a blowjob from a Canadian minister, if he can't build a wall and instead claims it was all metaphorical, if he's a narcissistic little spoiled twitter tumblr baby who alienates the entire world against us, what the fuck did you make him president for?

At least of Clinton was president she would have had Elizabeth Warren looking over her shoulder constantly.
