You dumb shit, banks could ALWAYS take back collateral in case of borrower default
He never argued otherwise. He said that deregulating the banks caused them to give out subprime mortgages to high-risk applicants. He's right because that is exactly what happened.
You should reference fact rather than fiction. North Korea may be a better example. If you want to know if that place is peaceful, just ask any North Korean.
Lol. And how many North Koreans have you ever spoken to, you massive hypocrite? You talk about the difference between fact and fiction and then in your very next breath arbitrarily decide the opinion of North Koreans.
Most North Koreans will tell you that they live in the best country on Earth and that you hate their freedoms, because indoctrination works the same in Korea as it does in the States.
Except the question of whether these abuses exist (at least on an extensive level) has not been answered.
Yes it has. Guantanamo Bay is in Cuba specifically because it is illegal to torture prisoners on US soil. Not ten days ago I watched a documentary series about Vietnam where ex-soldiers described regular gang rapes and the systematic killing of civilians to satisfy the government's "body count" statistic which was the official basis for how well the war was going. Wikileaks became famous overnight on the back of a video showing a US attack helicopter gunning down Afghan civilians in cold blood.
Hermann Goering proclaimed that although "the people don't want war," they "can always be brought to the bidding of their leaders.
And how exactly do the leaders achieve that without making the people want war?
Remember how beloved the Viet Nam war was?
The Vietnam War had high public approval in its infancy, for exactly the same reason the Iraq War did. The government lied to everyone.
While tens of millions of it's citizens starved
It seems like you are trying to conflate the Holodomor (a purposeful effort by Stalin to commit genocide) with the actual effects of Soviet Communism on poverty. Liars like you do this a lot. You simply love distorting facts so that they read backwards. Please do explain in detail your theory that taking a country's wealth from the hands of a few select elitists and redistributing it among the entire population causes the population to starve, you idiotic, backward Conservative cretin.
How succesful was the Soviet Union at ending extreme poverty (post-Stalin)?
The short answer is that the Soviet Union was extremely good at eliminating extreme poverty. The long answer is that they were extremely good at eliminating extreme poverty without actually solving it.
I'll be absolutely honest. The constant efforts of Conservatives to turn black into white irritate the living fuck out of me. Everything which is a demonstrable problem with pyramid systems, such as poverty, crime and homelessness, you mythologise to be a product of Communism. You are a lying idiot, Winston. It's as simple as that. Look at your own statistics, not under Stalin, but right now!!
About 15 million children in the United States – 21% of all children – live in families with incomes below the federal poverty threshold, a measurement that has been shown to underestimate the needs of families. Research shows that, on average, families need an income of about twice that level to cover basic expenses
So 15 million children in America are living in extreme poverty at this very moment and you are throwing mud at 1950s Soviet Russia? You are flat out a joke, Winston.
The reason the left hates him is due to his completely untouchable debating strategy.
Lmao. His "completely untouchable debating strategy" is to lie more than Adolf Hitler. Trump tells lies faster than it takes fact checkers to prove he's lying. By the time he gets busted for lie number one he's already onto lie number four.
Is it any wonder that people have such contempt for the American right wing, when you openly conflate lying and infantile personal attacks with intellectual debate?
That is all Old Testament stuff, so it also applies to Judaism and Islam, in addition to Christianity.
That is precisely the point. It applies to all major monotheistic religions, so why are you only attacking Islam? Why are you comparing Muslims to Nazis when your own country is stuffed full of fundamentalist Christian Conservatives who literally believe Hitler was right? You are writing long walls of text because, when expressed simply and precisely, what you are saying is stupid. It is the very definition of hypocrisy and double standards.
By contrast, there are thousands of instances on record within the last decade of modern Muslims actually enforcing Sharia with death penalties.
So again, what you are saying is that the only religion which follows the Christian Bible is Islam, yes? You are a complete and total retard, a bare-faced liar and everything you say contradicts itself. You began your post by claiming an equivalence between the monotheistic religions, and within a single paragraph you are back to attacking Muslims again.
How is it even possible that you could be so much of a hypocrite to attack Muslim countries for having the death penalty, when your own Christian Conservative country also uses the death penalty? I'm interested in how such total, wanton abandon of reason is even possible? Are you somehow under the impression that Christians no longer do bad things? Perhaps you would like to have a look at these?
Christian militias in Central African Republic burnt witches at stake
Christian Churches and Genocide in Rwanda
The Srebrenica massacre, also known as the Srebrenica genocide (Bosnian: Masakr u Srebrenici; Genocid u Srebrenici), was the July 1995 genocide of more than 8,000 Muslim Bosniaks, mainly men and boys, in and around the town of Srebrenica during the Bosnian War.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
