I love how they arrest the organizer, instead of the other ones that are blocking the entrance.

If you're dealing with a snake, it's best to start at the head.

Maybe we should skip wall street, and head straight for congress, and the likes of the crooked koch bros.

[-] 1 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Get ready for cries of "This isnt political" haha.

Kochs are Wallst. D/R writes the legislation for them and friends.

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Koch bros are a lot more than investors.

Im guessing they dont have too much to do with the production of things.

Darden Restuarant's owners dont exactly write the menu.

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Yes, they're more into buying off the EPA so they can pollute at will.

[-] 2 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Lobbying, yes. Without a doubt. Billderberg crew. Fantastic people.

And regulating all the competition out of existence.

Every city has one power plant. That is no accident.

Piracy on land. With gov approval.

Im going to guess you wouldnt sell out. Im hoping not.

So why the tolerance for those that actually charge you more money than you make?

[-] 2 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Correct (campaign bribes). How much is your signature worth?

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Your article says clearly "after rejecting an earlier version" which is what I said.

Do you understand now. Repubs created the economic failure, colluded with the banksters for the mugging, dems rejected it, markets crashed, dems improved it, then passed it even though they didn't want to.

Why did dems pass it? because the banks threatened to freeze all lending.

Those are the facts, that ain't partisan that is honesty.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Your the one who brought up pelosi, & Obama. So you are partisan as much.

Difference is I listed the facts of how dems in congress defeated it, market crashed, the changed it,and passed it.

You left that out. And you forget to mention Bush was the only Pres who created the tarp and spewed the fear mongering to getit passed.

banksters and repubs mugged us and rolled the dems. To play down therepub guilt is the hight of dishonesty and partisanship.

Whom bailed out wall street and the banksters?

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

The taxpayer was bilked when the wall st banksters (along with their repub tools) threatened to stop all lending unless they got a trillion bucks.

So we the people bailed them out when the corps (w/repubs) mugged us.

Right?

[Deleted]

[-] 3 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Did you bail them out?

No. That was both R&D presidents.

Nobody voted to bail out those criminals.

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

It was the peoples money. It was pols that the people voted in.

And only one President (Bush) colluded with the banksters, wrote the tarp, spewed the bankster fear mongering conjob that the economy would freeze up unless congress approved the trillion dollar gift.

So yeah WE all bailed 'em out. Without wanting to but yeah me & you.

[Deleted]

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Both R&D have been complicit in the bailouts.

Nobody ever was asked if it was what they wanted to do.

And I'm not American.

Australia's stimulus package actually did stimulate the economy.

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

So did ours. Unfortunately our repubs waterered it down, and blocked every other stimulus/jobs bill and state repubs fired almost 1 million state workers

Even still we've had slow growth since the small stimulus went through and hopefully will get more passed the traitorous repubs.

And as I recall the tarp it was a repubs program that helped repub constituents. And dem's were brought along with threats.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi immediately signed the package, which allows the US Treasury to buy up billions of dollars in bad mortgage debts choking the US economy, and sent it to Mr Bush for his signature.

"I really want to commend Barack Obama," said Ms Pelosi, a Democrat, adding that the Illinois senator had helped reassure lawmakers in tough re-election fights.

"He really gave them confidence that this was the right thing to do," she said.

Senator Obama said while campaigning in Pennsylvania he was glad "we finally got this dealt with" and called on the Treasury to carry out the plan in a way that "protects taxpayers" and helps avert further foreclosures.

The Senate passed a revised version of the bail-out package 74-25 on Wednesday.

Eventually after the dems added some transparency (not enough) and mechanisms to ensure pay back, as well as cutting the total amount and adding money for labor anddem interests they passed it.

Cause Dems were smoked by the repubs and their banksters puppet masters.

Thats what I remember.

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

What you "remember" is irrelevant.

Deal with facts, of fuck off.

This isn't a place for partisan shit like you're spreading.

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Pelosi didn't create the economic crash like Bush did, She didn't collude with the banksters on the bailout, She didn't write the Tarp, She didn't spew the fear mongering to get support

Pelosi did reject Bushs tarp and forced improvements that would help some liberal labor interests and stimulus and insist on payback, and cut Bushs original request.

Otherwise yeah they were the same.

Whatta joke you are.

No she just participated in insider tradings and made millions doing it. Guess what happens when you insider trade VQ and make money - that money comes from somewhere....it comes from people losing money - people that weren't privy to the insider information she was - schmucks like you and me...the average joe's. Pelosi is a snake.

[Deleted]

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

The article also says that Obama was congratulated for agreeing with the terms of the bailout.

Pelosi is just as much a criminal as bush, though not in the same leaque as Cheney.

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

You didn't read the link, did you?

I'll post the opening paragraphs for you.

US LAWMAKERS hope for investor optimism after President George Bush signed a historic $US700 billion ($908 billion) Wall Street bail-out that still will not be an instant fix.

The House of Representatives voted 263 to 171 to pass the largest US government economic intervention since the 1930s, after sparking market and political turmoil by rejecting an earlier version of the bail-out on Monday.

"I am hopeful that we have gone a long way towards restoring confidence in our markets," Democratic Senate Majority whip James Clyburn said.

Deal with facts.

Because you don't seem to have a clue.

I proved my point here. And proved you wrong.

So you decide to call me a liar. LOLZ

[Deleted]

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

WTF are you talking about??

R&D are both complicit in the bailout, and I just proved it.

[Deleted]

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

To play up the R guilt is partisan.

You are partisan.

You deserve your own partisan blog.

You deserve better than this place.

You need to consider your MO of being here.

[Deleted]

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

I understand perfectly.

You are still playing partisan politics when all evidence points to R&D being a meaningless ploy played out by the oligarchs.

Understand?

[Deleted]

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Did you read my link?

Obama was congratulated for okaying the bailout.

Maybe your eyes are just like your brain? Sliding left all the time.

Wake up and smell the roses, chum.

R&D are symbols only. Beneath the hype, they vary only in colour.

I know, right? What a bunch of shit.

[-] 2 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

The real test is always once one gets punched.

Anyone can throw a few punches. How does one act once punched back?

That will be the test.

I hope she goes right back after posting bail.

Any idea what happened to the rest of the tape?

[-] -1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Nope.

The depopulation agenda is starting to show through the cracks in the oligarch's trojan horse.

War without end allows unlimited test subjects for "vaccines", not to mention the spreading of depleted uranium around the globe, which will also save a motza on veteran pensions, because they won't be living long after dealing with that much radiation exposure.

On your Pelosi comments. She was wrong! Was she the only one? Who supported the changes to that corrupt system? Who voted against that change?

You didn't weigh in on the far greater crime of the repub created world economic crash. or the repub collusion with Wall st to write tarp, fear monger to get support, threaten further economic crash if dems didn't roll over.

That's ok with you I guess. You are clearly only concerned with small time partisan attacks.

[-] 1 points by john32 (-272) from Pittsburgh, PA 1 year ago

How come every time i say something about a dem you open the flood gates on the repubs and spew the entire historical record? I'm not the one sitting here claiming republicans are innocent. But it makes your skin crawl, you can't stand the idea that a dem would be mentioned in a sentence for a horrific thing they've done...it's partisanery at its worst.

Keep up the fight of the duopoly - you're doing a fantastic job spamming this site. You and your buddies.

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Your silence on the FACTS of repubs crimes in this thread, while jumping on some minor, questionable but legal, activity (ALL pols took part in) of Leader Pelosi is the real partisanship.

It is a transparent distraction from the massive repub/wall st crimes we are still recovering from (no thanks to the traitorous obstructionist congressional repubs).

How's dat for horrific?. You ain't gonna opine on dat are you?.

What about the almost 1 million fired by state repubs during this unemployment crises? Issat ok? Oris the dem jaywalking a bigger issue for you.

LMFAO. whatta joke

Actually bipartisan agreement on allowing mortgages to be used as international deriviatives.

You are such a hack. Embarrassing.

Hey, they voted for Obama - DEAL WITH IT!. Like I stated in previous posts - voting for the same person expecting different results is moronic and insane. And she decides to cry when the handcuffs are put on - wow - what a wimp.
