    typical attitude of a big government statist. Unless you are willing to pay as much taxes as I currently do, your silly rants have no merit or honesty. Your attitude is parasitic and this crap that its ok to tax people who are more productive and industrious than you are to the point that they have a few more bucks than the 47% who suck on the public tit is disgusting

    I see you have not addressed the fact that my comment was dishonestly misquoted

    Redistribution from homeowners to lenders and other financial institutions making record profits, paying our record bonuses, under regulations they spent decades shaping with $billions spent lobbying and campaigning. But it was all the fault of someone else.....

    Sheesh, it should be obvious the "equity and fairness" stuff is just the bones thrown to the proles as a small price for what the financial behemoths wanted. Like the cost of tipping the valet at a five star resort.

    You literally just made that up. How absolutley ridiculous.

    Clintons Fannie Mae Vice Chair appointee Jamie Gorelick publicly lobbied banks in the late 90s to sell the GSEs their Subprime loans so Fannie and Freddie could turn them into Securities.

    And the GSEs were happy to oblige. Freddie Mac guaranteed the first large block of Subprime loans in 1998. 380 Million dollar worth.

    In the end the wound up holding Trillions of dollars in Subprime securities and loans.

    Fannie and Freddie were the only two Financial entities put under SEC investigation for their part in the Subprime mortgage crisis.

    In 2004, 2006 and 2011.

    The banks.....Lol.

    Really?

    Remember, we're not talking about America. We're talking about the world. The theme is that the 1% of the wealthiest will own more than half of the world's wealth, not the US wealth.

    Just how is the world economy set up?

    your wasting your time.

    they see it as not fair that you worked saved and invested carried low debt or no debt and worked to be successful to where you got.
    all they can see is that you somehow cheated someone else out of their due and that you should be forced to pay simply because you got lucky

    it had nothing to do with your skill or knowledge or drive to work it was all luck.

    It's not what you have. Lots of people are rich. My oldest brother married into a very well to do family, but we don't hear them talking about how much better they have it. It's how you brag about your wealth and accomplishments that is sickening.

    true, modern American liberalism (better known as reactionary parasitic statism) is a never ending attempt to hide butt hurt envy with a facade of "social good" and " economic fairness"

    That, and the fact that some people believe that there inheritance is an "accomplishment", as if they did something to earn it.

    ah Poor thing. I am sorry the some place, some where I posted something that accentuated your feelings of envy. Its a piss poor argument to support confiscatory statist policies because someone made you feel bad about your own failings
