    I've never seen anything out of Roger that would lead me to think that he's not in favor of a free market system.

    Absolutely correct in that assessment as far as I am concerned. Major overhaul of the financial industry is needed some of which includes transparency of the derivatives market. A bill in the house supported by Representative Frank is filled with many loopholes and virtually has no teeth at all.http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...d=a7fAFtZGaGAk

    Another problem as I see it is this constant revolving door of Wall St. executives (primarily Goldman Sachs) shuttling between positions of huge importance in Government and then back to Wall St. Just this week another Goldman Sachs exec was named chief operating officer of the Securities and Exchange Commission's enforcement division. Adam Storch,who was the vice president in Goldman Sachs' Business Intelligence Group, is assuming the new position of managing executive of the SEC division. This follows a long line of similar appointments ie: Neel Kashkari, Hank Paulson, and Tim Geithner. Until the crooks are taken out of position of enforcement we will continue to see the destructive market cycles that have plagued us for the past 10-15 yrs

    The SEC has always been a bit dirty. After all, the first chairman was Joseph P Kennedy.

    I expect that must be just like being stung for a lefty when trying to posit that President George W. Bush isn't all that bright. It was really great when during the election when the left tried to posit that kerry was the smarter of the two and President George W. Bush had the better overall college transcripts.
    I don't recall Bush ever releasing his transcripts

    Dumbya too dumb to get into law school?


    The Starr Report: October 12, 1999
    Despite Yale diploma, George W. was
    rejected by U of Texas Law School

    By Linda L. Starr
    George Dumbya Bush was rejected by the University of Texas Law School in 1973 after he had supposedly graduated from Yale, an Ivy League school! How can this be true when at the time his father was the congressman from Houston? Is this more rumor-mongering by liberals out to besmirch the Golden Boy of the GOP?


    According to another Bush friend, Doug Hannah -- son of real estate developer turned space rocket [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]entrepreneur[/COLOR][/COLOR] David Hannah -- Dumbya was pretty cavalier in his 20s about girlfriends and drinking. When his younger brother Marvin was just 15, Dumbya took him out drinking and partying. Upon running over a neighbor's trash can on the way home, father Bush called him into the den to discuss what happened, Dumbya challenged "You want to go mano a mano right here?" Terrific family morals exhibited here especially since Barbara states there was no need to question Dumbya's behavior back then.

    So I guess the other points made here don't register with you, Roger?

    You can't see the forest for the Bush regards,

    A simple, one line, internet search will give you all the articles one could want.

    President George W. Bush was smarter than kerry. Not by much, but when we are measuring the greater brainpower that the left likes to bestow on their candidates, even a point or two would be an exponetial increase.

    Hum... Buzz,

    Don't think my my question was directed towards you. Think I was asking Roger and as of yet I have not heard a chirp, though I do have ringing, and other strange sound in both ears due to tinitus.

    I am a realtor not that it is any of your business. And I do not believe Obama is taking us into socialism any more than Dumbya did.


    RNC mulls accusing Bush of 'socialism' Nick Juliano
    Published: Tuesday December 30, 2008


    The divisions taking hold among Republicans are becoming more severe as the party prepares to accuse its outgoing president of embracing "socialism."

    The slur that conservatives were so fond of lobbing at Barack Obama during the presidential campaign is now being directed toward President Bush and GOP lawmakers who supported federal bailouts of the banking and auto industries.

    http://rawstory.com/news/2008/RNC_mu...lism_1230.html

    Republican leaders in both the House and Senate supported the Wall Street bailout, and GOP presidential candidate John McCain infamously "suspended" his campaign to return to Washington and whip up support for the bill. A Republican-led filibuster blocked the auto industry bailout in the Senate, but Bush decided to use some of the previously approved $700 billion to grant loans to the car companies.

    I have no problem calling some of President George W. Bush policies socialist. His prescription drug benefit could easily be called a social program.

    The bailouts clearly are.

    Bailed-out bank CEOs still living large while many Americans suffer

    Banks that sucked on the public tit of government bailout funds continue to ladle out lavish perks and benefits to the very executives who led them into financial chaos and, in too many cases, the federal government is sitting back and letting it happen.
    While cash-strapped Americans find themselves slapped with 29 percent interest rates from the banks that they helped bail out as taxpayers, the financial institutions hand out huge bonuses and fly their top execs around on private jets and pay the tab for luxury hotels and fancy "corporate apartments."
    They ride around in chauffeured limos, play golf at exclusive country clubs with their employers picking up the tab and see little of the pain and suffering that they helped inflict upon many Americans.
    Perks for top executives at troubled banks rose an average of four percent last year. In the meantime, Social Security face the coming year with no cost-of-living increase in their benefits and millions of Americans will lose unemployment benefits when they run out soon.

    Wasn't it Dumbya that bailed out the banks?
