    From 1933 (Glass–Steagall Act) until 1999 (Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act), the United States maintained a separation between investment banking and commercial banks. Once that separation was removed in 1999, the wealth of the nation got sucked dry with investment schemes that were once illegal. Removing that law only seems to have benefited the top 1% to 10% of the population.

    Its a stupid talking point that turned into something people actually thought was real across the board. Its not, there is no such thing nor was there ever such a thing as the American dream. Its just something people use to enforce their thoughts on how the country should be run. Nothing more.
    One of the most anti-American things ever said here.

    And one of the saddest also.

    You won't allow your ideas to fail. Its why people like you use the UN like you do and attack China for not playing along. You won't allow anyone to be able to get away from you. Its why when we live in another country we pay taxes back to this country. We are always in your reach and that is what you want.
    I have no idea what you are raving about. If you got that from my posts it is because you perverted the true meaning of them beyond all reality and turned them into some frankensteins monster version of my actual beliefs.

    Is that so? I bet I can beat it.

    Patriotism is only a way to quilt people in doing what you want them to do. People that use it try to put a connection in people to a country that doesn't even exist. It is trying to quilt people in thinking they should be responsible for everyone or help the country as a whole.

    Did I beat it?

    I need to see some proof of your idiotic claim that "the wealth of the nation was sucked dry"

    and what did that separation actually prevent?

    Well, unfortunately, lending standards were relaxed, and the CRA was strengthened as a result of deal-making between Dems and Reps, to garner support for the repeal. The entire debaucle was a recipe for disaster, and both parties equally share the blame.

    I'm talking about more than just you. I'm talking about the group you belong to and what they do and would do if the rich stopped holding up their belief system. Say I'm wrong if you want, it doesn't change how you present yourself and the actions you have been known to take.
