Every seven or eight years capitalism finds itself in crisis, a crash happens, we get active and create regulations to stop it, and then the banking industry lobbies to remove these regulations and it all happens again.

It's legalized economic 'fascism', if that's what you want to call it...
but it's still within the realm of a capitalist system ( that's rigged )but one that's
based on bribery at the highest political levels, so yes.

There is a shadow government running the show outside the law ( if the Constitution is truly still the law of the land...it's in question. )

Capitalism is cyclical, socialism is terminal. The biggest threat to any form of economics is big government. It's the US government that has the American people in debt up to their eyeballs not the free market. The real financial collapse in the US will come from the federal government.

But not with “progressives” though. If you build it, “progressives” will come along and destroy it.

The greedy bankers have destroyed it again? How so? I love my bank, online banking, online bill pay, a free debit/credit card....it's amazing! I get more for FREE from my bank than I get from my $7000/year property taxes.

Please explain how the greedy bankers have destroyed the economy? The wife and I are doing great! If it wasn't for the greedy liberal politicians we would be doing even better.

Please explain....

"Bank deregulation allowed “noninvestment-grade companies” to grow much more than would have been possible before. But banking deregulation also created two banking crises—the Savings & Loan crisis of the 1980s and the sub-prime crisis from which the economy is still struggling to recover."(Michael Milken http://www.mikemilken.com/articles.taf?page=9 )

Back in 1983, the top 5% possessed 76 cents’ worth of debt for every dollar they earned. The bottom 95%, by contrast, had only 62 cents’ worth of debt per dollar. In other words, the bottom 95% were thriftier than the top 5%. By 2007, though, the two groups had changed places. The top 5% now had only 64 cents’ debt per dollar, while the bottom 95% had significantly more debt than income – $1.48 debt per dollar. The middle class didn’t get a bigger slice of the capital. It got a bigger slice of the debt.

Perhaps you could go to a bank and ask for a loan to start paying your fair share of the debt???

We have 38 acres with really good well water, but if we wanted to, there's a fortune of natural gas under us also.( pretty soon clean drinking water will be worth more than oil and gas ) :$
Sold a few acres of mostly hardwood timber a few years ago for 30 K, that's almost 1/3 grown back where I planted some pines. If hemp was legal I'd be in the rope business for sure.
