Unreal. Shameful. Infuriating.
These people *spit* want to take part in running our nation. The nation that flag represents.
WAKE UP, AMERICA!!!!!!! WAKE UP!!!!!!
of all people….Dick Morris just burned her good
I’m surprised Brock is still alive!!! His natural paranoia coupled with his horrid drug usage and homosexual promiscuity, ….. I would have thought him dead years ago. That they’re turning to this old burn-out reeks of desperation.
Trying to grab some last minute Bernie voters.
BTW, Sanders is not only Jewish and a socialist but also a fulll throttle warmunist! Ticking all the crazy boxes! You don’t wanna vote for a 90% crazy if you can get the 100%!
The left-voting section of the populace really should be running around in straitjackets all of the time. It would make them more identifiable and they couldn’t poke themselves in the eye with their fingers.
Well I finally figured out what Megyn Kelly did wrong, she forgot to hug Trump.
so much for the rubes for Trump theory…
…Trump polled the highest with people with a college degree
NH women chose Hell over Hillary
but to no avail: Superdelegates help Hillary to a tie
So the establishment can’t lose at the Dems.
Are there such superdelegates at the Reps as well? How does this work?
Yeh, sort of, but, not like the Dims. The Repub superdelegates are suppose to vote as the state voted. The Dim superdelegates could have delivered us Hillary instead of B.O., had they chosen to do so. Mind you, these are party rules and not subject to any rule of federal law. About 20% of the Dim delegates (nation wide) are “superdelegates” who can vote any damned way they choose, regardless of the expressed will of the people of their party.
NIRP future prognosis: – 1.5% and more
They will have to outlaw cash quickly. I’ve been hoarding some cash for quite a while now, as they turned deposits into unsecured credit to the bank in 2014. So, they need to force people to keep their money in the banks where it legally IS NOT their money anymore. Is this perverted or what?
Think it through. You are supposed to work for money which you have to keep in a bank where it never is legally your money. IOW, you work to be able to provide unsecured credit to a bank.
You never own money. Hmmmm…. that’s the definition of communism!
The one that really tics me off…
Banks give bad loans….we bail them out…..they keep the houses and resell them
We all got royally screwed on that one
BTW! Did you know? Ron Paul demanded an audit of the Fed. They somehow diminished it but a few bits came out – the biggest one of them being that during the financial crisis, the Fed gave 16 TRILLION USD of zero or low interest loans to the OWNERS OF THE FED. Which are a slew of banks behind which of course the old financial oligarchs like the Rothschilds lurk.
Pardon the website but I think their account of it looks good. Was the first one I just found.
Yes, we all got screwed, including the banks. Banks lose money on foreclosures. The only profiteers were the leftist politicians who used this issue to gain money and support.
All good reason to Vote Bernie. Everything will be free.
Yes! We will be free of guns, free of borders, free of economic growth, and free of hope.
how did the banks lose money on foreclosures??
We paid them the money they would have lost….they kept the houses, which were now free and clear and owned by the banks…and now they are selling them??
Small price to pay to keep some heads so full of childish delusions that they pour from every orifice.
Lat, banks are by nature risk averse and would never had made those bad loans on overvalued property if the federal government had not put a gun to the heads of the bankers. And ever since, banks have paid a hefty price in many ways for something they did not create. I have worked in banking and finance for over 20 years, and nobody came out a winner aside from politicians, and a few elites.
The bank I currently work for was fined tens of millions of dollars last year for a crime they did not commit. Because of Dood-Frank, bank profits have taken a real hit, which in turn is passed on to the employees and customers because of fiduciary responsibilities where shareholders are concerned. What the government givith, the government can taketh away.
Dodd-Frank is proof banks do not run our government.
Gator, we should probably make the distinction between local banks and the federal reserve system, or even some of our larger private banks.
Yes, the local “community national” or whatever, took it up the a$$. (A few of the larger ones, too.) Freddie and Fannie made out like bandits. So, too, did some of the larger private bundlers. As Lat points out, some of the bad loans were simply paid for and the homes put back on the market. Someone made a killing on that!
But, the smaller banks are in the same boat as everyone else. No one knows which way to jump because there is no way to jump. As you point out, they’re forced to make bad loans, and then swallow. Interest rates for savings are non-existent, so there’s no good capital churn in the banks today. Interest rates for loans are low, so there’s not a lot of upside for making the bad loans. I suppose banks should start issuing their own credit cards and start killing the stupid with credit card interest rates. There’s probably some money in that but, that’s just taking from the poor and stupid, so there’s not a lot of money there, but, there’s a lot of quantity, so, there’s that …….
The word “bank” has evolved over the last few decades. It doesn’t mean what many people believe it to mean, today. For instance, Ford credit company is a “bank” …. but, it’s not a bank. ……..
James, you are correct that “someone” made a sizeable profit off this mess, but it wasn’t those of us who actually work hard to provide support to our communities. I myself would never have been able to build my little piece of Heaven without the backing of a banker who risked his career to make my dream possible.
Even after 20+ years in the industry, just today my eyes bled after reading the latest CFPB regs, the likes of which that are incessantly being handed down from oh high with zero oversight. Even if I were so inclined, I would not be able to find the time to relay them all to you, it is the modern day Tower of Babel stretching ever skyward.
Unless you work at a bank, and have to deal with this perpetual motion machine of insane and abusive regulation, you literally have no idea what is going on. Not a clue.
Well, we’ve some clues, Gator. Mostly thanks to people like you who give us glimpses into the world of banking.
But, we’ve also other clues. If the banks derive their wealth from the deposits of the people, then, it must suck today. The smart money says to get away from the banks. There’s no point nor purpose to put money in a bank, today. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big believer in banks. We have to have them to grow an economy. They are a must. But, as they are, right now, why would one?
Consider the end user …… today I have a checking account. That’s where my paycheck goes. I’d rather the cash be put in my hand, but, that’s not the way of the world, right now. So, I draw out of that account. I don’t let it accumulate. Why would I? It doesn’t pay me to do so. I don’t put it in a savings account, why would I? It doesn’t pay me to do so. I perceive that the banks will go under before the US dollar.
Today, outside of a loan, what does a person use a bank for?
Now you are working my side of the street! 😆
The government is doing its best to be sure that banks are neutered, and humbled. Like any industry that the left despises, banks are being bullied into submission, if not extinction.
I find it amazing that people think that a checking account should be free. Does anyone have any idea just how much it costs to establish and maintain a checking account? Online banking? Mobile banking? Security for brick and mortar as well as cyber? Heck, it’s probably just elves doing all that work for free.
If “banks” go away, who do you think will replace them?
give them an inch..
…rather than slap them into shape…..they closed it
A Muslim man walks into a federally-mandated uni-sex bathroom….
…Lefties speed-dial their psychoanalyst.
And their psychoanalyst tells them they are islamophobe racist repubs. That is how they get their tigger on!
And yeah it isn’t funny, it’s true!
