can we stipulate we know w/ certainty that not to act concerning bailouts
will have resulted in normalcy / stability in markets? why hobble your
argument with such predictive foreknowledge? (respectfully) I agree the financial compensation was egregious and unconscionable . the compensation ironically a result of the hands off policy (fiscal) breed into capitalistic blood.

most of the compensation were deals and contractual obligations pre-bailout.
as of this writing several of the bailouts have paid the govt ( tax payer)back with interest. public knowledge. I don't need to defend him.

international engagement ? I like some of Ron Pauls ideas .but man, he projects no engagement.

the republican guards have hogtied the bill of rights and Obama too.
and act like they belong in another country. what's up?

the democrats obviously have republicans in their ranks.
I want transparency and laws against members of congress benefiting from
prevaliged insider information just like the ones that apply to you and me.

I hear you and will consider the open meetings and blocking committie. observation. meanwhile , you have inspired me to check out the federalist papers, that may provide insight into what's up at the supreme court.

thanks for the welcome

and continuing rant... :dance: we all need to take some personal responsibility
concerning our debt to savings ratios and twisted consumer expectations
in this land of milk and honey.

when was it decided we all had to own a home that's 5000 sq feet?
who sold us that bill of goods? and why aren't there houses for every budget
that even our loyal vets can afford? back in the day notwithstanding any
toxic materials like lead or asbestos, houses were built to last and
had windows in all the right places. 800 sq feet 1200 sq feet ranch style
in the 40s, 50s, and 60s homes of that size are zoned out of existence
in order to feed the energy monkey. and the greed monkey.
where does the energy to heat and cool and light these homes come from?
they are the benefactors of adversarial conflict around globe today.
about the housing bubble. sorta.

You are right about one thing, the idea you need a 5000 sqft house, and that the little 800 sq ft. simple affordable house is extinct. That is becaue we have become an instant gratification society, wanting everything at our fingertips, no waiting, everything right now. We have also become a society that wants to live entertained every day of their lives. If they can make the payment, they can have it today, and if the house has some equity, I can borrow from that to have all the other things, cause I can make the payment. Both have a job, and we can get overtime, and we can easily make just one more little payment, and get something else. Now we have a house we can't afford, upside down because we spent the profit on toys that depreciate. Overtime got cut off, now we are in trouble, but we can run up the credit cards until they max out, and when they do we will transfer balances into new cards for a special rate. We can buy that new living room set and not make a payment until 2013 now, so thats not a problem either.

Oh no! the plant shut down and she lost her job. No problem we will get unemployment, cut down to the minimum payments every month we will get by. Meanwhile the boat will have to sit in the yard, and the motorhome we can plug in and use in the backyard, and let the kids live in it illegally cause they are both out of work. He still goes out dirt biking on the quads on Sundays, still have to have fun. Another $200 weekend day on the card, its only a couple dollars for the payment.

Sooner or later something doesn't get paid for, and that 12 months no int just kicked in the last years interrest if you don't pay it off completly. All the credit card are maxed out, you were late on 3 of them, so the interest of 9% just leaped to 21%, becasue the agreement is to never be late to retain the 9% rate. Your credit score tanked, and now you are in a pickle. Now you are screwed, because the housing market just collaped when the jobs disappeared. Supply and demand of housing depends on the jobs, now you are so upside down from loans plus the appraisal dropped, you are ready to walk away from the house now. No problem, you can just live on the streets in your motorhome, that the finance company is ready to repo too.

People are stupid, and they live beyond their means, and those people do not deserve to be bailed out. It is their own fault. Those of us who were not stupid, didn't abuse our credit, pay for all those losses in our rates. I don't feel sorry for them at all.

that was good. i didn't think I'd live to see the 'perfect rant' but that was
it. ! :clap: will have to be retweeted and dedicated to a lot of
Americans. above comments

old Ron Paul newsletter . I haven't read them in detail.
but some content w/ his name on the news letter appeared racist. will be interesting to see, in any upcoming debate when asked, if he denounces them. his prior defense was that he didn't write them .( nor should he be responsible for his signatory from content that is distributed in 'name' only. ) controversy was 90s and repudiated.(ghost writer) note to self. will have to research civil rights record... moving forward. I'm going to have to start a twitter account, every twit will feature only an twit pic . mission statement will be something
like.: the transformitive power of love through imagery (cr)

happy holidays...seasons greetings ,and thank you for your hospitality greeney2

Thanks ricardo, hope you and your family have a wonderful Holiday season too. Glad to have you as a new poster and that you are getting your feet wet jumping right in. We need new and fresh opinions and subjects, so you are welcome.

About my rant, the very sad part about it ricardo is that I worked with several people who were exactly like that. They just refinaced their home every few years, bought all the things I said, and were financial disasters. On top of that with all their debts, he was one to say he never had enough to start a 401K plan. I told him you are stupid not to. The company matched 50% up to $35 weekly. Not putting $70 a week into the plan to get the $35 is stupid, plus would be in tax deferred saving. He would not listen! He reciently retired, however he had nothing to show in home equity, sold it to get out from under it, to rent an apartment, and retired with no 401K plan. The classic example of credit abuse, and no bank forced him to do it. Only his own stupidity.

I'm disappointed too. (specifically Obama ) weighted 83% on middle east performance. (overall.) potential to go higher , if goals met. metrics.

too bad we both can't come up with more candidates. that's sad 🙄

Obama
S.C. justice Ruth bader ginsberg
petraeus
gates
spitzer?
hillary as potential running mate( vp)
bill Richardson ?

there has to be more out there.

Checkl it out....Rev. Wright; Saul D. Alinsky; Frank Marshall Davis, a communist; Paul Robeson; William Ayers (The Obama-Ayers incestuous money trail); White grandparents 🙄 .

Ya, I'd say he's picked up bad advice...:wtf:

Talk to yourself much, ricardo? ❓ :think:
