    They hate Obama more than they love America. It's right there in black and white.

    Because in the long run when econmies go into these depressions?

    BIG CAPITAL increases its percentage of owership as a result.

    YOu know how people like to tell us that there is NO pie to divide?

    That's not exactly true when it comes to ownership of the mean of production.

    While it is true that in a thriving economy, the pie keeps increasing in size?

    In a shrinking economy it isn't.

    What IS changing during those times?

    Who owns what, that's what changes.

    When times are hard assets, that people were buying, but now cannot pay for, lose market value.

    That's when big money picks them up at bargain prices from people who must sell them or lose everything.

    Mitt said we should let foreclosures proceed.
    Huge surprise...people like him will buy them and rent them out.

    Its true. Big smart money always wins no matter what happens. In 1929 the big smart money sold short and made out like bandits on people's crushed dreams.

    And there's nothing wrong with an individual taking advantage of a bad market to make a buck - what's wrong is when we as a people allow them to fuel the fire that caused the market to go bad in the first place.


    Inequality in society is perfectly OK so long as it betters all. For instance, if we can pick between economic system A and economic system B, and in A, you make 20 times as much as I do, but because you are driven to make a bunch of money, you provide a job for me, and in the end we both make more than we would in system B - system A is just and right. On the other hand, if we're in system C, where you make 200 x what I do and I'm no better off than I would be in system B - that's not right.

    Yeah, sure. We're all hoping our 401Ks and home values continue to spin downward. It's so much fun losing money.


    Sarcasm off.

    Back to reality -

    God, you're a fucking idiot.

    Do you think the U.S. defaulting on its debt burden would have caused home and 401k values to go up?

    they just dont get it.

    They refuse to take in new information unless it backs their already historically failed ideas.
