    Why did the GOP want Americans to go without Health Care Reform, and why do they now want America to go backwards without any financial reform for a better American economy?

    They want power. Power over ideology and over duty, honor, and country. :evil:

    Why do you think more regulation is going to fix problems when those who are overseeing said regulation are too busy watching pornography to do their job?

    We dont have a lack of regulation problem. We have a lack of honesty problem.

    The current draft doesn't reform the financial system, unless one considers institutionalizing even more power for the government to bail out firms a reform.

    I don't.

    Government will always resort to more spending when faced with a financial crisis that may impact their electability, power and influence. The banks are simply nothing more than scapegoats.

    Perhaps because what's being passed off as reform isn't really reform.

    I don't think that's ever crossed anyone's mind on the left. Any time the government does something it's good as far as they are concerned.

    A while ago, we re-painted our guest bath and installed new lights and a new mirror. We did so to match the new floor that had been installed about a year or so before that.

    This weekend it rained so i went to work and raised the fixture higher so I could raise the mirror which was too low to see my reflection without stooping over.

    This whole project was a Republican Party approach. Pick out the few things I wanted to correct, then correct them. If one of them went awry, correct that one part. Simple.

    Using the approach of the Democrat Party, if I noticed that i wanted to make some improvements to the guest bath, I'd have disconnected all of the water and power from the house, torn the house down, used the existing foundation, built a house big enough so that if the house was ever sold, no matter how the large the family was to move in, there would be enough room.

    The old foundation would not bear the weight, but that's not really the concern of a visionary

    Following that, I'd set up funding through burrowed money to assure that the house was always supplied with power and would commit all of my resources and savings to this pursuit at the cost of every other part of my life. If I found that this was not in my best interest, it would be too late and I would have already hired attorneys to assure that if i ever tried to back out of it even marginally, I would be put out on the street but still have to pay for it.

    This is the Democrat method. Suicidal.

    Shelby was resisting discussion about when they might begin debate but Dodd kept pushing so he finally said maybe the end of this week, beginning of next.

    They have to be so freaking, tediously slow about everything.

    Republicans only want control so they can screw up America in their fashion, not in the dems fashion.

    We shall see how the voters like the party of no at the polls.
