    Pretty much.

    I wonder what their "gradualist" approach to abolishing slavery or repealing prohibition would've looked like.

    Fannie and Freddie should never be allowed to buy another residential mortgage again on pain of death.

    You knew that the GSE's now control 100% of the mortgage market, right? That's up from 40% precrash.

    You knew that right?

    To take Fannie and Freddie out back to be shot, as they should, would severely disrupt the already fucked up economy.

    Positive rep coming your way for point out that huge mistake on my part. I think it was 100% over the summer.

    Thank God Obamanomics is working!

    It's easy to bloviate when you're somewhat powerless. Now that they actually have to participate in governing, they need to take the outcomes of their proposals into account, not just the ideology.

    And Dodd thinks he isn't responsible since he didn't run for re-election...

    He can still be nailed.
