Hi, Margin. I wondered where you were.
Y'all are wasting your time on Markle. He doesn't really understand any of this; he just has his prepackaged talking points replete with right-wing propaganda. You see, everything that happened to the US when GWB was President was just fine and dandy. But once President Obama took office, all hell broke loose. Those of you who remember it differently need to take a pill and report immediately to Sector 4.
As you know Floridatexan, I've handed MarginCall his behind any number of times about the housing collapse. It must have really crushed his ego. He loves to think of himself as an EXSPURT on financial matters. He may be with regard to stocks and bonds but he doesn't know the optionee from the optionor in real estate. Wasn't it "Dirty Harry" who said that a man has got to know his limitations.
Unlike MarginCall, I don't NEED to be the expert about everything. That's why I hire people.
I'm sure you are an expert at filling in a HUD 1 and you probably have a title insurance company on speed-dial. You see, your profession is one of process. You are a paper pusher and hardly a glorified one. Your profession doesn't require an understanding of why the housing market crashed which is perhaps why you haven't really grasped what happened and who you should blame. You've blamed Democrats and poor black people...and probably Jimmy Carter at some point, I'm sure of it. You're right, I do understand stocks and bonds....and how financial regulation, the Fed and its institutional participants affect the economy, especially one of its largest components - housing. Your knowledge of housing seems to begin and end with "a quaint two bedroom, two bath home on a half acre of majestic oak trees". By all means, tell us how Barney Frank caused the housing crash as GW and the Republicans failed to use their majority control to alter the course of financial devastation because they were afraid of being called racists.
