    This is why comedians should never make economic policy.

    This kind of thinking will just cause another banking crisis.

    Thanks Bill....now go back to making up funny lies for profit.:cool:

    I believe some of the libs want a collapse of the economy.

    The prick, Bill Mayer could be among them.

    ummm... wrong-o again, buckaroos... as usual, a pathetic effort at demonizing the "enemy". :cuckoo:

    Bill Maher said what a lot of people are saying... move your money out of a "too big to fail" bank and invest it in your local SMALL community bank.

    But you know, y'all would actually have to think for yourselves to pick that up, I guess.

    BTW, muddy, it's ENCOURAGE ... not INCOURAGE.

    And for the record, no, I didn't watch the version of this you posted because I can't get youtube at work. But I saw the video after I googled what you were saying and it was posted elsewhere.

    BTW... Maher isn't a "liberal" much as I know you love using that word as a pejorative. He's a libertarian.

    funny... and I think it's the right wingnut "ihopehefails" crew who want the collapse of the economy so they can try to get a political benefit from it.

    guess it depends where you're looking from...

    And I'm Rosie O'Donnell.


    All you got me on was a typo. I realized it after I'd entered it but didn't have the time to change it. I was in a hurry because I had to go to work.

    He's telling people to begin a run on the big banks which in case you haven't been paying attention...means a collapse of the banking system.

    Maher is spouting Marxist principles.

    His flawed logic only works in a dream world created by despotic regimes.


    It's how Scumbags like Stalin, Castro, Chavez, Obama, and Putin gain power....by fooling the masses into thinking the rich are the enemy.

    With the exception of my mortgage I've been using a small local bank for about a decade now and it's great. They almost don't know the meaning of fees. They don't even charge me for checks or processing them either. Yeah, technically there's a small monthy fee for checking account maintenance but it's so small it's insignificant. A while back I needed a couple of cashier's checks and there was no charge whatsoever, and very competitive interest rates for savings, CD's, ect. Best bank I've ever been associated with.

    A prime example of the effects of Marxism.

    "Screw those rich Fat-Cats".

    "Power to the people!!!!"
