Ahh our financial crisis.

The financial sector, when it makes money, believes in capitalism.
When it loses money, $$$ BAIL US OUT $$$ = socialism. Fun.

The problem is that our current institutions act like banks, get run on like banks, get bailed out like banks but aren't regulated like banks.

Unregulated capitalism is bad. Unregulated capitalism is mob rule.

I disagree I support a free market, but when subprime loans are packeted as securities and sold to other nations to be funded, it's simply just taking advantage of the system. The federal banking system is at fault really, so we can place more regulations all them for all I truly care, but government spending is a joke. 53 trillion dollars in medicare and social security promises, for srs? They act like they can just print money at the cost of the value of the dollar, oh wait.

It is not a statement, it is a question. That is what the "?" at the end means.

No, it was inquisitive. I find the policy prescriptions and voting records of the two senators to be virtually identical. They differ only at the edges.

On health care they both see it as a gov't responsibility to ensure universal health insurance coverage. They both see the need to inject the federal government into private health insurance decisions. They both further skew the market with mandates.

I will rephrase if it makes you feel better... What substantial policy differences do you find between Clinton and Obama?

Why do you keep posting the same thing about Nostradamus all over the section? On the scale of valid professions, his rates somewhere between a telephone tarot card reader and a meteorologist.

There's so much nonsense here lately, it's puzzling.

Most of his stuff is vague enough that you can shoe-horn things to fit them if you think hard enough.

Watch me as I become Nostradomus...During the year of the blah, a big event will happen and multiple people will be affected by it....here's 2 for the price of one....sometime in the next 300 years, a man will do something no other man has done before...

I can play Nostradomus too! I predict there will be dozens of hurricanes / tornadoes / cyclones this year that will kill lots of people I also predict the International Space Station will come crashing down to earth - within 50 yrs
