  •  I find the use of "fuck" so intelligent... (0+ / 0-)

    ...don't you?   It really advances your argument.

    And I think you should answer my questions before you demand I answer yours

    •  Oh Jesus. What are you a Mormon? (0+ / 0-)

      If youre a profanity puritan, ill avoid speaking freely. I'm from Brooklyn. "Fuck" is like "the" around here...common speach.

      Because congress can make laws doesn't mean they should make laws.    And who, exactly will benefit from this law, and why?

      If this crisis hasn't illustrated to you that Congress needs to make some laws, I don't know what will. Who will benefit? The american taxpayer who wont be on the hook for the fuck-ups of a few bankers. There is absolutely no reason why government needs to be in the position of saving bankers who screw up their investment choices. We have no choice now, because we cant go under. But we should never put the american taxpayer of saving failed bankers ever again.

      What "american capital pool" are you referring to?  Most of our capital is coming from China and the Middle East these days.    Is this advantage from some lower cost of capital?

      Pension funds. Mutual funds. Bank savings. You know...the wealth produced by the largest economy in the world. That is, minus that which is sent overseas via the trade deficit. Of course, as you point out, we borrow that back and use that too.
