    Why don't you stop squirming and obfuscating and just answer the damn question? Explain to me, specifically, who screwed us and how they did it. Are you incapable of this? Is that why you keep repeating your vague and meaningless sentiments about Wall Street greed and theft?



    Who are you talking about, specifically, how did they "**** the public", and what regulations would you impose in order to prevent said ****ing?

    I'd like specifics.
    Why would the answers have to be long and complex? Maybe because the financiers use long and complex methods to do their dirty deeds? They count on the SEC types to back off investigating when they see they might have to work at it, instead of just sitting in front of their computers masturbating.
    WHY ARE YOU so eager to cover for them? Are you one of them? Shouldn't you be working?

    Or is the evil media unfairly smearing the good christian folk on Wall Street?

    Instead of calling people stupid, why don't you share some of your super intellect and tell us how the media and the current administration are unfairly treating the financiers on Wall Street.

    And I did give you one specific, the elderly neighbor who got ripped off by his bank just so one of its employees could get a commission....
    I never said anyone was stupid. Stop putting words into my mouth.

    So, when are you going to explain YOUR position. This is a debate forum, after all, and one would be expected to actually define and explain their position when it is requested. You obviously cannot do that, so you just tell me to watch the news or some other nonsense, but this isn't about MY position, it's about YOU and the position YOU espoused. Do you understand how assertions work, or do you think you can just make them without having to actually support them with facts and logical argumentation?

    Whenever you're ready to explain your position without anecdotal evidence and inane platitutdes, be sure to let me know.

    Gee, I don't know, maybe because it's a complex matter when two sectors of the economy collapse and cause a major recession.

    What dirty deeds!? Why can't you be specific?

    They count on the SEC types to back off investigating when they see they might have to work at it, instead of just sitting in front of their computers masturbating.

    I'm not covering for anyone. I'd just like to hear you explain your position using specifics. Is that so much to ask!? Why are you on a freaking internet forum if you won't explain your position?

    Of course, the answer is that you can't explain your position, because you don't actually know what caused the collapse of the housing and financial sectors.

    And this has what to do with surfing porn? Nothing.

    The blame should really go to the network administrators who have no implimented the filters necessary to block such sites, which is commonly done in many other departments.

    So, some guy at a bank somewhere screwed over some person you know in order to get a commission and that's why the housing and financial sectors collapsed.

    Okay, I got it. That explains everything.

    Pathetic...

    P.S. - Bernie Madoff got sent to prison for the rest of his life. We already have laws against fraud.

    Name calling, labeling, etc.
    Yeah, YOU know how to debate....

    Madoff is a small part of a very corrupt system..
    The SEC is busy doing nothing constructive instead of seeking out the corruption and prosecuting those who enabled this mess.
    I hope Obama offers amnesty ( from jail time, but not restitution) to the first 500 who turn in their co-consprirators.

    You're the one who keeps telling me to watch the news or read the newspapers, as if I were some ignoramus. I find it pathetic because you're the one who can't even offer a substance-based and intelligent explanation of your position; I could certainly explain my position, but I never made any damned assertions or claims, YOU did, remember? I simply asked you to explain your position and got nothing but lame platitudes and condescension, which seems to be the only thing you're capable of.

    Anyway, this is just a waste of time. You have no position - just empty rhetoric and populist platitudes.
