    Oh puh-lease....just shows how little you actually know. There was never a "Libbos" running things in 2009-10. You had the Party of No....refusing everything...and you had a handful of conservative bluedogs joining them as well. So what we got stuck with was the same failed GWB ideas that got us into this mess in the first place.

    The policies of the party of NO is what is leading to the destruction of the middle and working class. The GOP will not be happy until they have led this country into feudalism.

    Or it could be that funding two wars costing $1T out of pocket (and likely $3T overall ... Cost of War to the United States | COSTOFWAR.COM or The Iraq War Will Cost Us $3 Trillion, and Much More), one completely elective, through tax cuts wasn't particularly good idea. Sorry, but 9/11 did not cause 8 years of $300-500B deficits; poor leadership and bad policy did.causes of the deficit.jpg

    What you are failing to understand is that it wasn't "liberals" who controlled the Executive and Legislative branches (no matter what FoxNews wants you to believe).

    You have quite a few bluedog conservatives in the Democrat Congress....the rest is made up almost entirely of moderate Democrats, with very few Liberal Democrats. The Executive Branch is left-leaning moderate at best.
    .
    The reality is....the blue dogs combined with the party of No, didn't allow for any "liberal agenda". We got the same failed Republican ideas that got us into this mess in the first place.

    Until there is a fundamental change in our government, we are going to continue in the vein that we are heading, which is the destruction of the middle and working class. This is exactly what the 99%'s are seeing and why people in this country are fed up and have had enough

    SHORT MEMORY; Recall when the Tea Party started how the media called them "old crazies" and the like. Has anyone noticed the difference in the overall appearance of the participants as well as their tactics. Which group looks like a bath would be an improvement and which group is defying property owners be refusing to leave and smokin dat weefa and cwak? One of the sorriest elements about the Viet Nam era protests is the drug addicted, lazy, jobless filth that joined the marches for the sole reason they had nothing better to do and the received free food and drinks. Now they grand kids take up their cause.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Thanks! Good on the protesters! I think its great they have put the reinstatement of the Glass-Steagall bill at the top of their demands. Letting commercial banking combine with investment banking was a bad idea and created banks too big to fail because they were speculating with people's life savings, and they will continue to do so as long as we allow it.

    I have a crazy idea for those who are against the OWS movement:

    The Volker rule will go in this direction. We also need to make sure that companies like Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs which are investment houses not banks can't change their designation just to get under the Fed umbrella when they get in trouble.
