BAFFOONS


Give us our jobs back?

Who do they think took their jobs?

Their jobs began their decline when Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and their friends ordered financial institutions to make loans to people who they knew could not pay them back.

Their jobs continued to decline when the government "helped" corporations with hand-outs called "stimulus," 80% of which never made it to the ones they were supposed to help. The rest of it went to "green" companies that promptly went bankrupt.

So, if among OWS' desires is to have work, why don't they just pay each other?

Or, they could select a few of themselves to be the hirers, while the rest of them are the hirees.

No, that won't work.

The hirers would then become the bad guys and make too much money.

Maybe some of them could think of something the rest of the world wants...something like the iPhone...and make millions on it.

Talk about irony...that would take the cake.

They don't seem to realize that it is people who take risks, make good investments, work hard and provide people with goods and services they want and need who form the companies that could give them a job.

Instead, they seem to think those people owe THEM something for no reason at all.

They ask the capitalists to GIVE them sleeping bags, food, shelter and then whine about how awful those capitalists are.

Like all liberal/progressives, they are complete fools.

liberals teachings are to hate the people who they demand they get free stuff from.
Shouldn't they be loving them already being they bear the bulk of the tax burden already so they can hang out on the street and demand more free stuff? I thought hippies were the movement of "free love".
They should be kissing those rich people. Kissing doesn't cost a thing.

Tear gas, anyone? Anyone?

This is nothing more than lazy people who don't want to work and will keep this stupidity up until the food, water and supplies run out. Otherwise, they have no qualms about wasting tax dollars.

Makes me sick.

You people have no idea what you are talking about.

This isn't some big mob of unemployed people camping out. This is a very well organized group of people who come when they can, stay as long as they can, to be replaced by others who do the same.

For the most part they are supported by other members of the movement who bring in food and pack out trash.

I know here in Kansas City, we have folks who go down to the Occupy KC site, gather up peoples bedding, take it to the laundry for them and bring it back clean and dry.

You just flat out have your "facts" wrong. But that has never stopped the Right from spewing goonbabble before, probably won't stop them now.

When did that happen, Joe? The CRA was enacted long before the financial crisis.

So let me get this straight, loans made under CRA rules by regulated banks defaulted at a normal rate and you don't believe there was enough liquidity in the system to absorb them as we have been absorbing them for decades? Are you that foolish or are you just pigheaded?


Hey malcontent, you lose sucker.

Joe, how about another economics lesson.

Gas is down to about $3.25 here. You contend that must be due to new supply or an anticipation of new supply. I believe you mentioned the future supply from the Gulf.

1. Has new supply come on the market? If so, from where?

2. If not, would you explain the dynamics which cause supplies two years out to cause such a sharp drop in very near term prices.

I look forward to your answer or your admission that you can't answer.

Joe said...

Ducky: You dim wit. The price of gasoline is always based on futures, that is: the investors' belief about what the supply of crude will be in the future. Sometimes days, sometimes months, but always futures.

Ducky's here said...

So that's your answer, Joe. Anticipation of Gulf drilling at least a couple years off is affecting near term pricing?

If you remember, you blamed the Obama drilling ban in the Gulf, which is now lifted, for high gas prices.

Joe said...

Ducky: It is lifted on paper, but oil companies are still restricted.

Hadn't you heard?

Ducky's here said...

No, I hadn't but even more curious in light of your theory.
