It reminds me of that ICP spoof SNL did. I'm surprised 300 wasn't treated as an historical documentary by History. Pretty soon Science will start airing programs about creationism, and I don't mean debunking it.


HAHA...300 is ALREADY treated like a historical documentary to most people.:rofl:

Obama just gave one of the best foreign policy speeches in decades, and he did it in Israel on Israel. People whose livelihood depend on hating Obama are hailing the speech as fantastic. Obama has been thoroughly lambasted as an enemy of Israel or (somehow) even worse, ambiguous.

You should read it. By you I mean everyone.

When David Bernstein from Volokh calls it "fantastic", you know Obama crushed. If Obama said the sky was blue, Bernstein would say it was green.

I see you've since deleted the comment. And would you look at that? Bibi just sucker punched the living shit out of the single most prominent Israeli politician pushing back against American influence in Israel... and just happened to fix their relationship with Turkey (the only NATO member that's at all Islamist) at the same time. And Erdogan knows all too well that America just gave him a massive political coup for free.

http://www.bbc.co.uk...e-east-21902273

Bibi gets the screws put to him. Avi Lieberman gets crushed like a grape. Turkey and Israel will normalize relations again. And America looks like the good guy because we actually are the good guys here. Yea, words r dum n stuff.

LOL!!!!z this like the USA apologizing for accidentally drone"ing" civilian over in Iraq, Pakistan, and where ever we see fit.

This is why gov't and those who work in government are ALL INHERENTLY EVIL human beings, they get to get by by saying sorry and using tax money from the peasantry ( us working class ) to fix their problem..

Imagine if a regular joe can get by killing people and saying sorry and here is some money from "donations" I got, so please don't hold me accountable.

HEHEHEHEHEHEHEEHHEHEHEEEEE.....here we go again. How did we end up with soooooooo much bureaucracy and complexity? Don't get me wrong, I blame the banks just as much as the gov't for going along with the gov't "suggestion" to loan to those who can't pay, but insuring their loans with taxpayer money is crazy. How about letting banks ruin themselves by making poor decisions rather than forcing those poor decisions on them? No BAILOUTS for ANYBODY!!! Stupidity, greed, lack of self responsibility, and desire for "control" will be the end of us.

But egofed, the government pushed for people with low incomes to have an easier time getting home loans when Clinton was in office and that worked out splendidly with no repercussions.

Yeah, and large banks never used that as a cash grab to over-leverage themselves into creating credit default swaps to in-turn insure them without caring if they failed or not. I suppose it's just easier to blame poor people than the rich fucks that decimated the economy while not only remaining rich, but are RICHER because of it because they were the ones that engineered it.

I know you're into making superficial pithy remarks, but come the Fuck on.

edit: As for Clinton being a neo-liberal shithead president in the same vein as Obama? Color me NOT surprised. Republicans have a rep for wanting to dismantle the social safety net, but leave it to Democrats to actually DO it.

But hey, let's just blame rich people because that's the flavor of the day. Come the Fuck on. I understand you think democrats walk on water but at some point open your damn eyes.

I've come to a realization that many people see the banks as unable to help themselves. Meaning that rather than saying that they (the banks) could have held back and not loaned money to those who couldn't repay it, they get overlooked and the people who were given the loans are blamed instead. It's like blaming the water for your ruined floor when it's the pipe that broke and spilled water everywhere.

Why would a bank every deny a loan Clak? There are no repercussions to giving out loans to someone with shitty credit or low income. The banks just go "derp" and wait for that lovely government bailout.

You been on vs. for just about as long as I have and you know your post is complete bullshit.

There's been so much written about what caused the economy to crash and THIS is all you've gotten from it? Seriously WTFBBQ. Does everything have to be broken down into quick soundbites for you or something? Hate to break it to you, but shit is complicated...far more complicated than that conservative pseudo-libertarian drivel you're regurgitating.

So what he's basically done is prove my point, that banks aren't expected to act responsibility, just to be as greedy as possible. It's the government's fault for tempting banks into being irresponsible, they can't help themselves.

According to this, they never got the full $528 million. The loan was conditional and suspended last year when milestones weren't met. The article cites them securing $193 million in loans, but that doesn't seem to be all from the federal loan. I can't find any source that says exactly how much they actually got.

It's also worth noting that this loan was part of the $25 billion Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program that was passed by Congress in September of 2008. From what I've found, only four companies have secured (conditional) loans from it (decided on by the Dept. of Energy): Fisker, Nissan, Tesla, and Ford.
