    When smart citizens BRAG that they don’t read the opposition’s view, and their news sources are proven to be tainted in a series of cases, we have a full on nation-wide propaganda network and political cult behavior in play.

    One more Obama behavior that tracks history’s worst despots.

    This summarizes how bad it’s getting: “Help Kickstart WWIII”

      Completely irrelevant, I can see why BR is questioning whether he should keep comments open.

      As with Alex Jones, if you had a valid argument (that was on topic) – it was lost to the over-sensationalism of your message, that video was a ridiculous waste of my time, there are valid complaints about Obama to address, none of them are in that video.

      “Anything Obama wants” – He just turned the Syria decision over to the House & Senate., not
      one of the last four presidents has done that, and you infer Obama is a “despot”, it’s your usual – ridiculous, non relevant to topic.

    So a relatively inexpensive moratorium on house foreclosures and evictions that lasted until the mortgage holder could get a job paying enough to service his mortgage would have prevented the crash. The FBI was already onto the fraud aspect. Imagine that. Saving the “little guy” would also saved the “big bucks guys” too… and much better.

    Courtesy of Larry Summers, Sandy Weill and friends, removing Glass-Steagall and allowing loopholes in the CFMA enabled the massive banking cartel that owns our government to basically take out an $80K loan from every U.S. household to fund executive bonus packages, then forced each household to pay it back.

    If we object and want the money back, Fox & CNBC call us “Socialists”…wealth disparity & household debt is at levels not seen since the Great Depression.
