    1) tell the people not to buy so much stuff from the rich


    2) tell the government to steal from the rich at the point of a liberal gun and call it taxaction

    guess which method the liberal will prefer?

    ANd yet, the only liberal responses you're gonna get is the smug ones pointing out your typo when you typed "taxaction" rather than taxation.

    Ok. I took their thunder. You made a typo. Now, lets hear their counter argument!

    .good point. True story: I was on another board where a conservative purposely misspelled because he knew that was the only way to get a liberal to feel he was smart enough to comment.

    #3 Tell the CFTC to establish the regulations against energy speculation or fire the whole lot of them.

    whats wrong with speculation in any market?? You forgot to say because as a liberal you don't have any idea. Some speculate a market will go up and some it will go down. The net effect is to keep prices accurate so when most people buy they get a fair price. Thats a huge plus.

    Wanna 'get even' with the 1%? Don't buy the tabloids that chronicle their daily lives.

    You keep wanting to call this stanch ***Independent*** a liberal because ,guess what, Independents don't always agree with greed mongers. Unregulated speculation is a recipe for that greed mongering, self centeredd, piece of garbage theft. Does that answer your shallow minded question?

    independent means independent of intelligence and so cant decide. Thats just as stupid as deciding to be a liberal. Sorry I'm sure you're a great guy otherwise



    no party does so you have said something very stupid once again. Why not become a conservative so you can sound intelligent??


    unregulated speculation occurs every day in the stockmarkets, for example.

    some speculate the price will go up and some down. The net effect is accurate prices so when others buy they get a fair price. This is exactly what we want in all markets. As a liberal you will lack the IQ to understand that.

    Very sad but true. The self proclaimed 'goldem boys' have it all under control. They know what they are doing and all is well. Butt... the fruit on the trees is the 2000 recession. "Oh, well let's fix that with a housing bubble. Ge, it is only a matter of innocent speculation." "Oh gee, these f'in investors expect a monthly payment!" "Maybe we can gouge Joe Average at the pump every week to make our payment so they do'nt realize how lame we are." "Did. I say that?" "Must have have been some star dust moment, of course, I can't do any wrong. I am a golden boy." "Hey, where the hell is my bonus?"
