Govt and the private, capitalist financial industry each did their fair share of damage in causing the crash. It's easy to point fingers at one and not the other but doing that is incorrect.

Don't know why I'm even posting this because I feel like we have had this convo a dozen times before.

Hey Patrick Chewing? How about his whole reason for starting the war in Iraq being the claim that Saddam Hussein had WMD and was tied to the Sept. 11 attacks?

This is being seriously discussed? The verdict on the Bush Administration is rendered by the fact that the only person that mentioned him at the Republican National Convention was his brother. The value of tax breaks for the rich can be debated. Starting a war that costs hundreds of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars by accident cannot. He was a terrible President.

The better question is why is the Republican's base of middle American poor-middle class people so in favor of making the rich richer? Do they really buy into the 'trickle down' nonsense that has been time and time again proven to be utter bullshit?

Makes no sense to me whatsoever.

A lot of liberals are rich themselves. Doesn't the right try to position the left as the Hollywood elite?


Why does the right care about no one but themselves?

If you don't question the official story at the very least after watching this vid above, then there's something wrong with you. But of course you won't watch in it's entirety and will either ramble off to some bullcrap as usual or won't post at all.. typical.
