Congressional Republicans Want to Give Wall Street Another Chance to Wreck the Global Economy

That is the position of most Senate Republicans, who want to let the banksters operate in a rules-free environment.

Because, you know, it worked so well in 2008 and in 1929 when the banks and Wall Street were allowed to do whatever the frak they felt like!

They think they've figured out how to make it a Great Depression for just the non-rich, and no *real* people have to jump out of any skyscrapers.

Tremendous profit in a financial collapse, you know. Chinese word for crisis, and so forth.

Oh puh-leeze, here you go with those FACTS things again. Listen. Our Lord and savior Von Mises and his Holy son Hayek say that the problem with Wall Street in 1929 and 2008 was TOO MUCH regulation! For true! Nevermind that there are no, well, *facts* to support a statement, we have faith, faith I say, and your secular "facts" simply are wrong if they violate the holy scriptures of Von Mises and Hayek and their Austerian program to force austerity upon, well, other people (certainly not upon us with our cushy right-wing think-tank jobs and our six-figure pensions at age 52, what, you think good Republicans like us should suffer the same way as the little people? Puh-leeze!).
