    I must add, Nobody makes bankers do anything they do not want. When the Feds were fixing the crash, the government was forcing the banks to buy up securities to help fix what they created. Some of the bankers refused unless their salaries and bonuses were guaranteed by the government. We were talking a second great depression and they wanted their fucking bonuses. They got them.

    The Fed did that.

    They were. By the Fed.

    A bit. When the lies started coming out of them to shift the blame away from government, I stopped watching.

    Just as usual. Congress displayed a blatant disregard for the truth.

    Sure they were. Congress was doing everything it could to wash its hands from it.

    Greed was certainly a factor, but not the cause, of the crash. The cause was the Fed.

    Yeah. So?

    No need. We both know what swaps are.

    Yup. To offload their bad loans onto some other fool, or so they thought. They didn't realize they were building a massive shorting market, and enough people called bullshit and won big.

    I was possible to pay them off. They DID pay them off. That's what killed so many banks.

    No, they didn't. ALL of them were paid off.

    The Fed caused the crash. Then they claimed to 'fix' it.

    WRONG. The Fed simply lowered the margin again.

    The Great Depression was a direct result of Hoover and FDR. It didn't end until AFTER WW2!

    Downturns are normal. The 1929 crash would have corrected itself in a year or two if Hoover and FDR hadn't messed with it. These two are what made the Great Depression Great.

    Into the Right is showing utter ignorance again. Really knows how to prove a point. Just say "lie: over and over. There might be other rightys who share your tiny knowledge base. Perhaps they think that mess you just posted was a compelling argument. I cannot imagine how,but rightys on this board are running on empty. Just like you.
