    You are entitled to your opinion. I disagree and support its reestablishment. Not sure why anyone want's taxpayers to be on the hook for the bad decisions made by investment banks, AGAIN!

    I think he is wrong. But's interesting to see you support Krugman's analysis.

    Fair enough. I don't agree with Krugman most of the time...but sometimes...

    Taxpayers being on the hook is a seperate issue from the repeal of Glass Steagle. I am all for allowing failure to fail. It is the liberals who are not. See GM/Chrysler if you doubt me. I am more than OK with the creative destruction of capital. .

    I hope you don't mind my sweeping the clutter outta yer post. Explain to me how BO is responsible for a sub-prime bubble that occurred before he was in office? My way of thinking is he is attempting(with winger headwind) to clean up eight years of incompetence exacerbated by two meaningless wars.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Whipsnade, good try, but this isn't HuffingtonPost. You are whining at best.

    Oh yeah? Do you not earn a paycheck... because everyone's taxes went up this year. Face it, the party of higher taxes isn't going to go after their donors... unfortunately, the supporters of that party believe they will. But, who is the judge on who can afford higher taxes? What if it is my goal is to make sure each of my grandchildren have their share at $1 million? I can't have that dream? Yet, Sandra Fluke is on a crusade to see how many STD's she can contract in college as a 30-yr old and we are expected to bow-down and obey? So, financial gain is bad, but physical gain is just fine.

    Why is Charlotte's drinking water so awful? Along with NYC, Chicago, and every other liberal city out there? Capitalism supported by Republicans promotes devices to eliminate toxins from tap-water.

    More government spending equals less wars equals less spending? No matter which way you shake it, more government spending never equals less spending. Example: If the government spends $1trillion, there is no way it did not spend $1trillion.
    Most self-described liberals and progressives aren't nearly as liberal or progressive as they believe themselves to be.

    The single greatest threat to liberty is the collective belief that government grants it.

    I never said any of that. I would like an apology for claiming that I said things I did not say please.

    So you are in the misguided belief that Republicans would allow the big banks to fail?

    I listed a few very heavily regulated cities (one in which I live)... The drinking water is still crap, and your movement for "clean drinking water" has been alive and well in several liberal cities for decades. What is the disconnect man?
