The 2008 meltdown was the direct result of a harmful combination of government law AND regulation.

That statement is so funny it makes me thinks you're trying to be a comedian.
Corporate greed had nothing to do with the meltdown?
I guess i'll reserve my critical acceptance for the things that Elizabeth Warren
has to say on the 2008 financial crisis, and put what you say in the same category as Glenn Beck,
Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity, the ravings of the lunatic fringe.
I'm sure you'll take that as a compliment.

Of course, none of the names mentioned, have anything to do with his posts.

Your Post was meant to be funny. Correct?

Note: I did get the Joke, and you may take that as a compliment.

Major pretty much correct IMO, but you omitted Greenspan's admitted incorrect analysis that the banks would self regulate do to self interest. Bad policy followed by unconscionable greed by the banksters. Regulation is required if this is to be avoided, there is nothing wrong with fiscal responsibility and a lot right with it.

Greenspan's 'thinking' that Capitalists would self-regulate themselves, is...

Of course Regulations are needed. The descussion is over How Much and Which Ones.

Speaking While Female.
Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant on Why Women Stay Quiet at Work


As this and other research shows, women who worry that talking “too much” will cause them to be disliked are not paranoid; they are often right.


Perhaps I should worry more about being liked, but I don't. Life is too short.

Men Just Don't Trust Women -- And It's A Huge Problem

Generally speaking, we (men) do not believe things when they're told to us by women. Well, women other than our mothers or teachers or any other woman who happens to be an established authority figure. Do we think women are pathological liars? No. But, does it generally take longer for us to believe something if a woman tells it to us than it would if a man told us the exact same thing? Definitely!


Something to think about, perhaps?

The Females, I was associated with, either in PD, or Educational Institutions, who spoke the most: I considered (mostly) to be among The Best. Same for males, including of course, myself.

The 'Don't Trust', is about personal relations. I also see this regarding women in these relationships.

Professionally... Same amount of trust/distrust, depending upon the individual. Not Gender.

What you are referring to is anecdotal evidence and your perception of what is going on.

However, the first article refers to several empirical studies that show that there is a measurable difference between how much time women are given to speak before they are shut down or talked over.

The second article is anecdotal (much like your example) however there is a study that shows that women are not trusted when it comes to giving business advice despite evidence that their advice is excellent. Investors don’t trust women, WUSTL study finds

Never been in a Business Environment. Just Police, and Educational. Military doesn't count, because there were very few women in Positions or Rank, then.

Perhaps different.

In your link to the article one of comments to it says.
"Too many greedy people. US people consume over 50 times the volume of Earth's resources than Ethiopians do."
A bit weird comparision but anyway:(

7 Billion Ethiopians, will also destroy The Climate.

To be for ALL Solutions, is Unintelligent.

To be against ANY Solution, is also Unintelligent.

Many times: The Cure is worse than the Disease.

As long as the underlying problem a regulation is designed to prevent exists, the regulation is necessary. If you can find a way past those problems without needing further regulations, great, make the regulations obsolete and I will be right there with you saying the regulation is unnecessary and needs to go. Until then, those regulations are necessary.

Understood. But...

Can many Regulations be either incorrect, nor necessary anymore.

Don't believe, that if one believes you should be cautious about Regulations: That person doesn't believe in Necessary Regulations.

The old saying - The Devil, is in the Details, does apply to ALL Regulations.

BTW: Do you believe ALL the, perhaps thousands/millions of Regulations, are either necessary, nor harmful?

Another 'Straw Man' ascertain.

So you just want less regulations. And you think that will help? Less regulations will make things a little cheaper, but they won't actually make things so cheap you can compete with other low wage countries, while you will compromise on some form of safety standard, be it environmental, workplace related or consumer related.

Those rules were invented for a reason, they are meant to combat a problem. I can assure you that in nearly all cases those problems still lurk beneath the surface and will return once the rules dealing with the problem are relaxed.

To be for ALL Solutions, is Unintelligent.

To be against ANY Solution, is also Unintelligent.

Was never an undue burden on me or company I owned or the ones I worked in. In fact complying with OSHA regs and having a safe workplace was in my best interests as was complying with environmental regs. Frankly those who scoff at those concerns don't deserve the benefits of the society they are using for their personal gain, IMO.

So you disagree with:

Why?

Straw Man.

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has issued a report that shows the macroeconomic impact of federal regulations. The study also reveals the extent to which manufacturers bear a disproportionate share of the regulatory burden, and that burden is heaviest on small businesses and manufacturers because their compliance costs are often not affected by economies of scale. - See more at: http://www.nam.org/Data-and-Reports/Reports/Cost-of-Federal-Regulations/The-Cost-of-Federal-Regulation/#sthash.XqrYv3Mb.dpuf

Sure. But do you want a situation where there are no regulations?

Is it Obama's fault your system did not let him introduce the right system instead of the system he had no choice to introduce.

Yes. It is his fault, and the Democrat Congress.

No Republican voted for this (Censored) Obama Care.

Therefore: All problems are Obama's and The Democrats Fault. It is THEIR Plan!

BTW: No, I am not against Universal Health Care.

Think of a Severely Battered Wife. Does it really matter is she, for whatever reason, decides to 'Drop Charges'?

It should be taken into account.

No!!!

Live in The Real World. Where Many Victims are scared, terrified, stupid , or don't care, or too scared to care (speaking of Domestic Violence) what happens to their children.

You wish to return to the recent, primitive, Excuse Domestic Violence, past?

Rape Victims? Robbery Victims? ... Victims? What other Victims, do you include?

[quote]Roman Polanski, they still can't get him back to face charges.

I thought Mr. Polanski just had to be sentenced as he plead guilty.


This is the latest.

Roman Polanski appears in Polish court for extradition hearing

By Kellie Morgan and Laura Smith-Spark, CNN

http://www.cnn.com/2015/02/25/europe/roman-polanski-extradition/


On more than one occasion, his victim has called for the charges against him to be dropped.[/quote]Does that not count for anything?

I also remember reading somewhere (CBA to find a link) a statement from his victim saying that the relentless media intrusion did her far more psychological damage than Polanski could ever have.

Actually, no.

The Prosecution represents The State, and The People's Interest's. Not the victim.

Think of a Severely Battered Wife. Does it really matter is she, for whatever reason, decides to 'Drop Charges'?

Or a Rape Victim, or...

If you want to drink sewage that is your choice but I choose to be part of the solution not part of the problem


Thanks for your extrapolation that if one objects to over regulation they obviously drink sewage. And exactly how are you 'part of the solution'.

When your ideas are shown to be incorrect...

The (you know what) starts with the infantile name calling.

SEWAGE???

That was the BEST you could come up with?

You're ideas, and philosophy, are sinking faster and faster.

No ES is a militant female feminist and voluntary moderator who should leave this forum!

jann, being a militant female or mod does not make her incorrect in her views and she should them.

Two ascertain's were made.

I personally don't agree with everything Thirsty believes.

But any disagreement should be pointed out, and explained.

Clyde I lived through it and Thirsty is wrong, his perception of reality and mine is very different.

Why, point by point, is he incorrect?

Noting Perception of Reality, is a 'cop out'.

I suggest everyone stop defending or trying to argue with this made up nonsense.

ES you are probably correct, the scary thing to me is the thought he actually believes what he posts.

Typical.

When The Lefts arguments are refuted and/or questioned:

The just say a curse (BS or worse). Or just say "wrong".

I personally don't agree with everything Thirsty believes.

But any disagreement should be pointed out, and explained.

Will this be possible from those opposing Thirsty?

We will see.
