    It takes a certain level of privilege to not "give two shits" about politics. It other words, it must be nice not being part of a minority group whose livelihood is contingent upon the results of political elections.

    It's not a bad idea (within limits) and if it hadn't been for all the fraud, then it would have worked.

    That is a rather elitist and defeatist viewpoint "The country is so special that it needs special people and nobody is special enough." With that kind of twisted logic you end up with Trump

    Everything and every man, woman and child is flawed and that is why you should give two shits about politics.

    That soapbox is really big. Maybe you can donate it to shelter a small family?

    Yeah, its always a great idea, if you have high influx of investment money - to do nothing with it, let it create a stock market bubble, fail at regulating, then let it create a bust, that shocks the world economy, then fix it by quickly selling those toxic derivatives to 'friendly trading firms' around the globe, then not hold the people responsible accountable in any way - just trying to get the debts you've prepped them up with off the books. Because too big to fail right?

    Because the housing market was so great to turn into a speculative financial scheme... ;)

    I dont see how state regulation could have solved any of this, right?

    Read wikipedia on regulatory capture.. ;)

    It could have worked, though.. ;)

    What was the housing market ever not speculative?

    It can work, but not if you look the other way when there is obvious fraud.

    Alright- by that logic, the four-hundred-thousand-and-change CoVid deaths are on Trump's hands.
    Or does it only count when it's specifically Republican deaths that happen to literally spill blood?

    A problem of our times is, that it has become so speculative, that middle classes cant afford housing anymore. :) (edit: Where cheap housing mostly created out of wood isnt so much an option - at least.)

    Most politicians currently are at "but if boomers die off - that will be the turn around", which is great and all -- but still, f*ck you? You had one job, ... (Kind of thing.. ;) )

    Also the question was "it could have worked", vs. "you created a world wide economic crisis" I believe.. ;)

    In my lifetime I never thought I would see shock troops deployed by a sitting president and engaging in chemical warfare against fellow citizens. Joe Biden’s America is not who we are.

    Only been president for 1 day and he is going full fascist on portland

    yep, you're a poe
    you're literally just making random shit up to throw together into a poorly written dystopia fanfiction
    shock troops? chemical warfare? w a t ?
    also considering that today's portland protest is basically just a small mob of anarchist far-lefties that even I'd find going way too far ("we don't want Biden we want revenge"? seriously? revenge helps nobody.), you'd think you of all people would demonize THEM to hell and back

    gotta love how y'all trumpers see any protests against Trump or the bullshit he's caused as horrible riots but suddenly pivot to defend both the Portland riot and the Capitol one
    oh and act like a relatively minor response is "fascist chemical warfare" when AFAIK these are the ones where the police AREN'T using shit like tear gas and rubber bullets

    Federal agents directed by the president using chemical warfare on its own citizens. We need an international human rights group to step in immediately and investigate.

    Once again: WHAT chemical warfare?
    And also once again: Then why didn't you take that side when Trump had police gas and suppress peaceful BLM protestors for a fucking photo-op?
