Somehow, i get the feeling greedy people would still be greedy without government intervention. Problem is people need a place to live, without residence you are pretty fucked and a loan is the only real way to own property.

There is no one person to blame. The more people, the more variables, the more likely it is for someone to fuck it up. The plan had unforeseen consequences due to the unforeseen reaction by the banks. Everybody loses, though.

90% of blame rests with Barney Frank.

On a different note:
Every economist that they consulted while putting this so called "affordable housing" bullshit together told them that it was a horrible idea that would eventually devastate the housing market. As is typical of the government, they brushed them away thinking "you don't know what you're talking about." And every fucking one of them was right.

the main idea of the housing market came about when people were told to take out equity loans on their homes to invest with to make money from their home. This had an effect on people's expectations on what their primary home was. It stopped being a place of residence and became an investment. when the paper value of a home becomes a major factor in its attractiveness, and capital growth in a public neccesity is assumed, housing prices rise beyond the common person's ability to pay for them. For commodoties like gold this is okay because the day to day life of the little people is not overly affected.

Actually, this started because the Clinton my black sonistration pushed banks into a policy where everyone was "entitled" to have a loan to own a home. Some people could not pay back these subprime loans, causing banks to lose a lot of money and go bankrupt. The bankers are still at fault, though, because the government policy encouraged the subprime loans by allowing the bankers to collect a percentage from all loans given out. As a result, bankers gave loans to as many people as possible (whether they could pay or not), so that they themselves made money. According to my economics professor, who knows many of these bankers, they made over $400,000 a year on bad loans.

But what if the government had kept their nose out of it? THIS NEVER WOULD HAVE HAPPENED. See my point? Also, how is the bank at fault when the lender is the one who took that loan? Did the bank force them to take the loan? No, they didn't. You see, the government gave business a chance to make money off of stupidity. The government gave greedy people the opportunity to make money off of peoples' stupidity. How was that a good idea on the governments' part? If the government would have stayed out of it, we would be fine.

Look, i'm not to into politics because I know that this country is pretty much screwed no matter who we elect.

I know bush did a lot of things wrong for this country, do I know exactly what they are? no, I've been told them before but they don't exactly come to mind because I've got terrible memory when it comes to stuff like this. If I knew more I'd have a proper rebuttal. But I don't.

I know bush had a lot to do with our terrible economy, that much I can say. I'm not sure exactly what it was but I know he WAS involved. LIke I said before, i'm not placing all the blame on bush because not all of this is his fault. Obama is to blame to, no doubt about that. all i'm saying is that now everyone's blaming obama for everything and like bush, it's not all his fault.
User avatar #33 - proudnerd (09/06/2012) [-]
You say that it's Bush's fault, but why? Bush has been portrayed by the media as a scapegoat for years and years of horrible policies regarding lending. He actually had nothing to do with it, and that's the real tragedy here, that everyone mindlessly blames one man, but can't say what he did to cause the problem. I personally don't care for Bush that much, some things i support him on, others I don't, but I am not going to let a (mostly) innocent man take the blame for years and years of bad policy in congress.
I will agree that Obama didn't cause this either, but I don't really see much he did in helping the economy. His two biggest legislations were the stimulus and health care reform, neither of which really helped the economy. The real downer with Obama is that he conned the whole country. He pointed out that Bush spent too much and that he added way to much to the deficit, but then he got in office and did the same thing. He Promised that he would fix the problem, and he even said that if he didn't he wouldn't run for re-election. He actually said that, so that we would be sure he fixed the economy. I just wish he would have kept his word.

The Romans were not stupid. They were not so petty that they wouldn't write about something as incredible as a man coming back to life. The Romans didn't even have anything against Jesus. They weren't the bad guys. They didn't call for Jesus' death, the Jews did. Even if the Romans were afraid of looking bad, you'd think someone else would write about Jesus.
Just as there are methods used to date rocks, there are methods that allow us to date old writings. We don't even have the original writing from Paul, or and of the gospel writers. Or the copies of the originals. Or the copies of the copies of the originals. There isn't any real debate, facts are facts. The only thing that people are doing is trying their best to find more writings in a desperate attempt to prove their religion. Even if they did find them, it would only prove that they were written. Their are texts written about other demigods in other religions. Those have just as much supporting their truth as the gospels.

From what I make from it, that would make you a deist, not a theist. Deist being that there's a God who created everything, and doesn't interfere with his creation. If you follow Christianity (or any other major religion really), God is clearly a theistic one (listens to your prayers, intervenes at moments,...)

And do you mean creationism and evolution, or am I missing something? because the two are not complementary or anything.

Well then, if he CAN intervene, why doesn't he do it more often? Plenty of places in the world where divine intervention could be really helpful. Millions of people starving, natural disasters killing hundreds of thousands and leaving millions homeless, terrible diseases,...

If that were to happen, where would faith be? and I do think divine intervention has happened from time to time, but the big problems in our world arent pointless and for killing people. you see how people dying and diseases and such spurs people into action, brings people together, and breaks people into tears, which, isnt always a bad thing.
User avatar #274 - biggieboy (09/01/2012) [-]
Sure, bringing people together and spurring them into action are good, but if he can intervene, why would he let his favorite creation (according to the bible) suffer so much? Not even from what people do to eachother, but things we have little or no control over (like the weather and certain diseases)

You can't just say... K disprove me, I'm a christian... Okay.. erhm... the earth is round? want to debate that?... also the moon is not made of photons... do you still think mixed fabric and shrimp is the work of Satan and that people who get tattooed does it to defy the will of God.

Some Christians don't believe in heaven, hell and prayer either...

I'm an atheist, my belief concerning the spiritual is simple, it's non existent.

Why don't you tell me what kind of magic your deity does and what superpowers he's attributed with. And I'll do you the favor of not holding you accountable to what the bible actually says. Because I've tried this before, and it ends up with you whining about not all Christians doubt evolution.
User avatar #84 - proudnerd (09/01/2012) [-]
Well, you've put a lot out there to start with. I'm not sure where you got the idea that all Christians believe the earth is flat and the moon is made of photons, but I don't really see any evidence for that. Deuteronomy was largely for public safety and practically applied the ideas of God in areas that don't really apply now. The mixed fabric thing had to do with vanity (if you can where ugly clothes, then you're not vain), tattoos are vaguely in the same area, with a little bit of public safety because getting a tattoo back then wasnt exactly a sterile operation. But all of that doesn't matter now that Christ paid for those sins with his life.
I care not what some idiot Christians believe in doing or not doing, I am nondenominational and base my beliefs straight out of the Bible.
That's ok with me that you're an atheist, I just think you're wrong and would like to see if I can possibly change your mind. If not, that's fine, it's your life/eternity.
As for "magic" and "superpowers," He does what He wants. He is God, all powerful, and all knowing. I see him more from the "Divine Clockmaker" perspective in that he set everything up in the world, so that he doesn't have to step in very much, and actively works by urging people to do the right thing in their mind. And on evolution, i believe both Creation and Evolution can coexist, I just had this discussion a few minutes ago. Hopefully this link works, never linked a comment before:

Have you ever heard of Horus, Krishna, or Mithra?

As for that evidence, if you were to research the early religions of the mediterranean, you would be able to set up a timeline of when different religions appeared, and where the originated from. No one who ever wrote about Jesus even met him, all the gospels were written many years after Jesus' death. There isn't even any records written by anyone of that time that one man was going around performing miracles. By the way the story is told, that was a big event, even for the Romans. You'd think that they would write something about it down.
User avatar #171 - proudnerd (09/01/2012) [-]
How do you tell when religions showed up and disappeared? How? And the whole "the gospels weren't even written by the apostles" idea is still being debated. I don't see how you can prove they weren't written by the apostles. And the Romans would record that they killed a man who later came back to life? When they put him to death, they wanted to shut him up, and why would you record that in doing this, you actually fulfilled his greatest purpose?
