    Actually it is the duty of our Government to maintain order and domestic tranquility. Otherwise why have any rules or regulations? Why have the FDIC guarantee bank accounts from fraud and robbery? Why have a police force? Life does have risks- every man for himself!
    It is not the job of our federal government to bail out banks. Please find me that where it is stated that is one of the federal government responsibilities.

    Of course there will always be risks, SOCIETY works to minimize those risks and keep innocent people from harm.
    Forcing taxpayers to pay for bank bail outs is not a function of society, nor does it keep anyone from harm.

    But seriously, do you think TARP made life free of risks???? Now when it comes to jobs what do CONs always claim- their leadership creates jobs.... so yeah i'd say it is the Gubmint's job to ensure an even playing field, a fair labor market, safe working conditions, honest business practices and jobs for those willing to work... (ever read the GOP party platform????)
    Of course not, TARP was useless. No it is not the job of the government to interfere, nor is it the taxpayers responsibility to pay for the mistakes of a business. I don't know where you're getting these crazy ideas, but it sounds like you don't understand the limitations of the federal government.

    I don't think that's true. I've been around here for a while now. You aren't fooling me.

    I think you are referring to all conservatives. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. It's nothing new, but anyways, it was very tasteless comment to make.

    They're going to get chewed up if they move on Baghdad. I think they've hit about the limit of what they can expand to right now, especially given that they also have to support ops in Syria.

    CON game- the Government should keep the economy stable by first not stripping away all the regulations put in place to correct from the last time the free hand of capitalism jacked the economy off a cliff and then by not allowing millions of Americans to lose their jobs because the same smucks who would never hurt their corporations (according to the CON capitalism primer) did just that for short term gains. (those CEOs and money managers should be charged with criminal misconduct but sadly most of those laws were stripped out)

    It is very much the job of the federal government to 'bail-out' account holders, either if robbed or the bank itself conducts fraud. the FDIC protects account holders. Please find for me where the courts have ruled the FDIC is unconstitutional.

    Society does in fact protect banks, jobs, homes, health, your loved ones- NO ONE can go it alone- we depend on ambulance crews (taxpayers are 'forced' to pay for them), firefighters (again more 'forced' taxpayer funding), but also the facets that keep this nation more than a cabal of individuals fighting over the scrapheap from other nations that do band together.

    Of course the Government should step in (should act proactively to prevent market crashes from short sighted capitalistic greed) and prevent a massive collapse of our economy from hurricanes to derivative scandals.

    I don't know where you get your concepts of governance- cut throat capitalism and a level of society that goes back to kill or be killed hunter gatherers...
