    The t- partiers CNBC- generated, refrain :D . The t- party is blaming the poor even though the banks lobbied to have 20:1 cash on hand ratio's for their gambling. Where was that douche- Santelli when Bu$h II was handing out trillions?

    Try reading a book cons. I read this one late last year: The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine [Book]
    I'm currently reading this one: Griftopia: A Story of Bankers, Politicians, and the Most Audacious Power Grab in American History [Book]
    The banks succeeded, through their lobbying efforts and their TeeVee channels to make the t- partiers think its the poor- black and mexican's faults :eusa_doh: :eusa_shhh: :lol:

    CNBC & Fox are playing you people like the stooges that you are :(

    Are you seriously suggesting that someone who buys a house they can't afford has absolutely no responsibility for their predicament whatsoever?

    The financial institutions didn't care. Why do you think they were signing foreclosure notices w/ auto-pens :eusa_eh: They got their fee's and their riding high as ever at the expense of t-party 'merka. The demand for luxury goods and the stock market are "managing" ;) Wall St thanks you. These are the same people Boehner is referring to as the "job-creators" LOLOL

    I remember Bu$h II touting "merkin home ownership" to all who would listen. The politicians are complicit in fleecing you little people too. They work for the banks, not for the people.

    That'll be because the honest answer is a tad inconvenient and would require criticism of the party!

    Party before country is the acceptable way of the Democrats now.

    I never expected a coherent response from Randians.

    Right. And Obama is not trying to single out B of A, Right. You are here to throw stones, not to reason.

    You might try a coherent premise if you are seeking a coherent response.

    Good on you if you read that. I'm on my 2nd book about the financial shenanigans which ONLY hurt the middle-class and poor. This is a non-partisan issue. Its more about the top 5% and everybody else. The first book i read is by this guy:
