    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It's one of the ways rightwingers try to derail discussions that make them uncomfortable.

    No criticism necessary... simply pointing out why no one has responded to that post, and provided a reason why. I've said the topic expanded, as topics do sometimes.

Where that failure goes bankrupt and is sold off will open the market to other businesses to take it's place and perhaps, learn from the mistakes of the others who came before them. What was learned in this bailout was, if you get big enough, you don't have to be responsible or accountable for bad decisions; the government will save your ass. A horrible lesson.

By responding and answering such a post would be acknowledgement of wrong doing on the Democratic side and that's just NOT part of the partisan talking points.

    Few names you might recognize followed by the number of checks they bounced. Oh yeah, source : Business | The List: Bickering House Hurts Itself -- Final True Confession Tells Little About Scandal | Seattle Times Newspaper

    Richard J. Durbin, D, 12
    Barbara Boxer, D, 143
    Maxine Waters, D, 5
    Henry A. Waxman, D, 434.
    John Jr. CONYERS, D, 273
    Steny H. Hoyer, D, 3

    So...what does that say about Dem leadership?
    If you truly want to go down to the mud and be really partisan and affiliate that guy with the entire movement, well there you go and there are some serious leadership names in the above list.

    It's just like the excuses when a Dem gets caught with their pants down. eh, they aren't the ones argueing that cheating is wrong.

    This thread is not about check kiting or bailing out banks that are about to go under. please stop derailing this thread, which is about ONE Teabagger who is trying to blame a bank for giving him a loan.

    They are in equal responsibility with a bank being foolish enough to lend someone more money than they can repay.

    Poor people didn't beg banks to create sub-prime loans. Sub-prime loans were invented by banks to take advantage of rising housing prices and sold to people who were higher risk because they were placing a bet that the value of the home would rise quickly and the person would sell the home before the interest rate spiked.

    So, yes, the person making $30,000 a year applying for a $500,000 loan is responsible. But so is the idiotic bank that created such a possibility in the first place.
