    Actually he is right, they do get welfare, it's called bail outs or stimulus. I was just making fun of his three word quips that lack very much substance. I guess I should have choosen "yes they do" instead.

    And their lending profitability potential is unlike anything we have ever seen in since the existence of lending itself!
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    You are aware APDST that government transfer payments help keep crime rates (more so fraud and theft) low.

    I don't think he's aware of any of the basics here other then "blame libbos for everything."

    You don't even know what planet you're on. Go look up some more acronyms to make yourself look smart. Good luck with that.

    lol.

    Let's review a little history here.

    The bailouts started under Bush. The largest bailout was orchestrated by one Henry Paulson. Now, while Bush was clearly a liberal in many aspects, you seem to be unwilling to admit this. And Henry Paulson is not a liberal by any real measure.

    Watch:

    Are you so busy trying to hide your partisanship that you're incapable for having a real conversation?

    All I needed to do was correct your spelling to turn that around.

    So are you going to be consistent or a hypocritical partisan hack?

    You don't even know what planet you're on. Go look up some more acronyms to make yourself look smart. Good luck with that.
    Amusing coming from a user who 1) can't read properly and 2) has yet to disprove a single thing I wrote.
