    Reagan didn't create the mentality - the CRA was the mastermind of Jimmy Carter back in 1977 Clinton just amended it 15 years later.

    Reaganomics had some flaws but it certainly fixed the economy - there are a lot of theories as to why the he fixed the economy with his plan and many are too complicated to get into right now as this being a simplistic thread, but I would be glad to discuss this idea in the future in the appropriate thread and debate.

    It fixed the economy but didn't help the middle or lower classes his reforms only helped Wall Street.

    Typical progressive...... Got any logical dissent other than "bull****" lol.

    It's not that difficult to understand that giving money er "loans" to a bunch of "poor people" that buy homes with the money and who cant pay the money back, turned right around and used their "assets (home)" as collateral to secure more debt (credit cards) and put everything on plastic for about a decade, then the second the banks wanted to recoup their money, they lost everything then the liberals painted them as "victims" of greedy banks...

    Why you think the economy was so great under Clinton? because he forced the banks into lending hence using the banks - not the taxpayers - as a form of social welfare.

    This is what you get when people don't pay loans back......

    When was the last time you saw a "zero money down drive away today" commercial? oh yeah they don't exist anymore because they were part of the problem.

    Conservatives, to me, are the managers, the rule-writers, the roadblocks. It was conservatism that needed to be overcome for womens rights to happen, civil rights to happen, gay rights to happen. All men are created equal- that's the liberal philosophy in a nutshell.

    1. Since when am I a "progressive"? Oh, I forgot, in your world, anyone who doesn't think exactly like you is a card-carrying communist. Or "progressive," since you seem to think those are synonyms.

    2. You claimed that liberals all are devoted to Obama and want him to be king. That kind of stupidity doesn't deserve anything more than to be called what it is. Which is BULL****.

    It amazes me sometimes how certain conservative posters create this ridiculous strawman liberal in their head, and attempt to use that strawman as a cudgel despite how poorly constructed it is.

    This article can be found at the Montreal Gazette.

    I hope more cities will choose to protest the anti-gay laws in Russia by doing this. Hopefully we can get more Canadian cities to do it as well as some American cities. Do you think that your/nearest city would raise the LGBT flag?
    Yeah cause flying that flag will surely make Russia change its policies.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Wall Street?

    You do realize Reagan crated a business friendly atmosphere? and honestly those who invest in the market are not "Wall Street."

    The problem with Wall Street was that there were a bunch of shady brokers out there that could convince to to invest in companies that didn't even exist or just convinced you to invest in "**** on a stick" and called it chocolate popsicles...

    Yeah there was a lot of trash on Wall Street but that was hardly the collapse or led to the collapse..... In the end local banks got screwed and had no choice to sell their debt to mega banks because the local banks got ****ed by Bill Clintons CRA amendments...

    In short Bill Clinton destroyed independent banks and forced them to sell to cover their own debt.

    You prove my point man....... Your damn profile says you're "slightly liberal" and anytime I throw the word "progressive around" smoke shoots out of your ears, then anytime anyone criticizes Obama you come running to his defense like some sort of minion.

    What am I supposed to believe when you do nothing but defend progressive ideas, side with communists and praise Obama with every opportunity?

    I don't know what you think you are but we certainly don't politically agree on anything and you seem to side more with progressives than any libertarian, classical liberal or conservative...

    I suppose my point is that just because you believe you're "in the middle but slightly lean left" doesn't make it so considering your activity on these boards.

    Business friendly by making it easier for corporations to buy each other out and make more profit not small business. Most middle and lower class people do not have enough to greatly benefit form investing in stocks, it only helps the wealthy.

    Cool story, bro. "Side with communists." You, sir, have positively no idea what the **** you're talking about.
