    Wrong.
    Do you even understand how the top 1% got wealthier?
    Hint: It wasn't from being bailed out.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Why do you think they should give you something?

So she is sitting in a 6 million dollar home etc but has a decent but not huge income of say 190K a year--enough to maintain her comfortably and pay the 39K property taxes. her income put her in the upper middle class but her wealth-which produced ZERO income made her "very rich".

    Now many parasitic liberals would say she ought to pay a huge tax each year on that "wealth


    that sort of mentality disgusts me

    The government lifted regulations. The government didn't force any banks to do anything, nor did it hold a gun to Jamie Diamond's head and make him foreclose on the homes of soldiers serving overseas whilst violating the Civil Relief Act. Whatever happened to accountability and holding people responsible for what they do?

    You could have made a case for why one narrative was superior to the other.

    But you didn't.
    You resorted to going after the person instead of addressing the ideas. Again.
    I may be wrong.

    They threatenend banks who would not set aside traditional underwriting requirements in making loans, i.e., those who did not loan to unqualified buyers.

    The "ownership society" was a miserable, liberal failure at social engineering, and totally at the feet of the government.

    Wrong. Do you not understand that honest wealthy people are struggling in this economy? The only people that have it made, are the one's that are too big to fail, and they can keep ****ing the rest of us over. We paid for their mistakes. We bailed them out to save our economy and jobs, and they are still ****ing us and living as comfortable as did before they destroyed our economy.

    Government interference in the housing market destroyed the economy.
