    Iceland’s economy tanked before ours, brought on by the same deregulation and shoddy untrustworthy banking practices that would bring us down soon after. Iceland’s economy is now booming. The reason? They punished the bankers and bailed out the taxpayers.

    Of all the reasons the Justice Department has given us to loathe them, the fact that no one has been indicted, let alone prosecuted, is the most important failure of all.

    And, I believe, refused to pay back what was owed to other countries. At least that’s what I read in the press.

    The economy is fine. The monetary system by which economic exchange of labor is accomplished is broken. When your government raises your cost of living by $1500 per year to fund giving you an extra $900 per year as an welfare entitlement for your cost of living, you are being lied to and stolen from while having nothing to steal except your trust in the government and your faith in the monetary system.

    poignant………………….not! Bors-Sorenson-Rall worshipers, crawl out of your parents’ basements to love this tripe. Make sure you’re wearing something Euro-trashy, and by all means, don’t bathe.

    When a poor man robs a rich man while wearing a mask, that’s theft. When a rich man robs a poor man while wearing a suit, that’s capitalism.
    Maybe it’s time for us to “stand our ground”?

    You conservatives are way, way off base on this one. A lot of it happened because the clients were lied to about the loans, and assured that they were earning enough money to buy the house. In any real-estate loan transaction, you’ve got a loaner who has done thousands of loans and knows what’s reasonable, and a client who usually hasn’t done it before and trusts the professional. Blaming the client for not knowing that it was an unethical loan is like blaming the guy who buys a car with a bad water pump. “GM is innocent! He should have checked the water pump before he bought the car!” No, we have a right to expect cars that work, and that loan payments are presented truthfully. And if that isn’t happening, that’s where government is essential to police the business, because business has proven incontestably that it can’t.

    So we should be doing Neighborhood Watches on Wall Street and K Street? That guy with the briefcase and the Italian loafers looks suspicious.

    OK, capitalism aside (and what the financialists are doing is as much capitalism as butchering a steer is surgery), I like the table-turning and calling a thug a thug no matter what he looks like (thugery is as thugery does.) Especially like the “culture” reference. Veritas!

    MStevenson58: Overlooking the almost weekly buried story in the papers about another home stolen with forged documents or the occasional home foreclosed in spite of being free and clear.

    Trust me. I can fix it. My dad is a TV Repairman and he has this awesome set of tools. ( Sounds like a time to worry. )

    “wealth envy, class warfare, no real facts just victims, yep, this is a liberal fantasy strip. Obama will be pleased with his media mind numb Minoans.”

    So, Harley, you’re saying that there has not been a wave of illegal foreclosures?
