    How so?

    The only example I could think of is if a politician is influenced by personal monetary gains by a lobbyist. That is against the law, though.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I'm going to have to ask you to prove that.

    Here's a hint: in the olden days politicians would have real jobs. But the lazy slobs capable of generating votes came in and decided working as a rep was the best job around. Don't have to bend down to pick up stuff, no heavy lifting, no real effort at all except when Congress is in session, the perfect job for lazy, incompetent slobs. If you can't connect the dots between terrible leadership and decades of decline, then you're missing an integral part of the picture. All they have to do is manipulate politics and gain votes for the idiots back home. That's all, there only responsibility is to themselves and their ability to continue getting votes to secure a fantastic lifestyle and retirement. As the base level, that's all anybody really wants and that's all they are seeking in Congress.

    That makes a helluva lot of sense.
    Huh??? Not sure how you reached that conclusion!

    Those companies who wanted to make more profit have gone to these countries. That's nothing against the law, but it does create other problems that need to be solved. Problem that are new, and have no historical action to rely upon.

    Wall Street went down because of greed resulting from deregulation. That in itself has bankrupted your country.

    Actually there's a lot more to it than deregulation. Not even touching on the stuff with the monetary system and the Fed, you still have strong links between members of government and Wall Street. Goldmach Sachs case in point, big time Goldman people running the financial show last year in the Bush administration. And yet, they're still doing and Obama is doing nothing to stop it. Oh Obama, oh Obama the invisible President, where have you gone Obama?

    Not sure how I reached that conclusion? Well, I took a look at reality. That's how...

    And, now Liberalism is going to send it right on over the edge.

    Do you think people in charge of regulating are divine or something?

    They are equally prone to greed because they are still people.

    The only example I could think of is if a politician is influenced by personal monetary gains by a lobbyist. That is against the law, though.
    aaaah....the law.....enforced by men prone to greed, enacted by men prone to greed.

    Here's how awesome our SEC regulators are: they are so awesome that they themselves are not continually checked for insider trading violations or conflicts of interest, it operates on the honor system.

    wall street went down because of greed and deregulation? You clearly recite liberal talking points without actually understanding what you are saying.

    First off, markets came down because they were too high.

    They were to high because of government regulation.....namely the Federal Reserve regulating interest rates creating bubbles that would ultimately pop.

    And our country is not bankrupt, we still have far more collective wealth then Canada has.....is your country bankrupt?

    Collective wealth? That sounds like the term a communist may use. "Collective" well got news for you, unless you're going to rob everyone in America to contribute to the "collective fund" for paying off our foreign creditors, then what good is "collective" wealth? What are you talking about? We have a huge glut of homes on the market, people enslaved with mortgages higher than the value of the house, overinflated assets in our portfolios, how is that really wealth? Are you talking about gold? are you talking about manufacturing capacity? This crisis is no small deal and to compare us to Canada, who is in far better start position than the USA, I just don't understand it.
