“Fall of Central Banking -2008
Rise of Capitalism -???”

Viper on Jun 22, 2011 at 22:01:55

“Actaully it was the central banking system that may have contributed to the problem, because it did not use the regulatory power it had, since as Greenspan said he thought the markets could self regulate.. and he has NOW said he was wrong...

That central bank also saved us at least for now. Only reindustrialization and getting rid of repugenomic failed BS can allow for that..

The private banking system assts were backed up by (67%) since the 30s when they failed during the great depression of Hoover.

“We don't have socialism. What we have is much closer to Chinese style communism. Our government is primarily concerned with corporate interests. H-1b work visas is a prime example.”

“Oh man, you seem to understand this issue sans the comment about some sort of "stimulus effect" of QE2. The only "stimulus" of quantitative easing is padding the pockets of rich bankers and helping politicians along with their pet projects.”

“The day that we employers just give up on giving low skill workers an opportunity to make ANY wage. Lucky them. I guess no job is better than a low wage job in your world, huh?”

sassiestkat on May 25, 2011 at 14:12:54

“Hi, with all due respect, where did I say that? I really wish people wouldn't make statements that I neither said nor implied. I never said "don't work because no money is better than some", what good would that do? It would be detrimental to the individual and possibly their family, if they have one to support, and the welfare system, which btw, I don't even happen to believe in as a gov't funded institution. I take the Libertarian Party's stance on it.”

“(1) President of the United States of America is not running the world.
(2) How did you arrive at the conclusion that he is racist? Or does freedom equal racism through your utopian lens?
(3) Dr. Paul has a long history of helping the poor and underprivileged. Though you wouldn't know this because he doesn't advocate Marx's view of social welfare.”
