Tea Party Rep (Joe Walsh) Blows Gasket at Town Hall Troublemaker: 'This Pisses Me Off!'
Fox ^ | 11/08/2011 | By Lee Moran, The Daily Mail

Posted on 11/09/2011 11:59:37 AM PST by Responsibility2nd

The bizarre rant from Illinois congressman Joe Walsh came after he was grilled during an informal surgery in a bar about the lack of regulation which ultimately allowed banks to bet against their own customers.

Cutting off the man, the father-of-five yelled: 'I am tired of hearing that c**p. Don't blame the banks... that p***** me off.'

As your name suggests, I too am wide awake and cannot for the life of me figure out when the word surgery became synonymous with meeting.

Joe Walsh
Sheriff Joe

“Joe” always has been a good solid American name.

Surgery can be Brit-speak for an office. But how ridiculous! I read this over and over again and it doesn’t make sense - even with that explanation.

That means that the surgeons wore blue jeans, and t-shirts while operating on Joe, were having beer while doing so, and had Joe’s butt on the grill, cooking, all at the same time.
It’s known as multi-tasking. Hope that cleared things up for ya.

Walsh missed an opportunity. There is no shortage of regulations on banks and other financial institutions. They are drowning in them.

Somehow we are going to have to counter this false “deregulation” meme. New regulations are BELCHING out of the White House every hour.

I sometimes think of running for office. Then I think about what happens when my rather long fuse finally reaches the end...

I can easily see myself in this conversation:

Advisor: The President would like your support on XXXXX.

Me: F*** the President.

Advisor: The mike is on.

Me: Whooops.

This nation needs more like Joe Walsh in Congress. Walsh was 100% correct in that clip. It’s about time the true blame for the banking mess is exposed and the ignorant sponges who continue to parrot the lies of the left face more shouting down.

Unfortunately, the banksters, making all these lousy bets on economic trends around the world (derivatives), are part of the problem. When the bets start going bad, the banksters are going to lose money. Notational value of all these bets around the world: up to 1.4 QUADRILLION dollars. Actual value in the end: far below that, I would presume.

Bailouts, anyone?

Joe Walsh needs to chill and acknowledge that the banksters really are part of the problem.

As the young woman said to Joe Walsh:

"The banks lent money to people they knew couldn't afford it."

It's called "fraud". And the Banksters' lobbyists knew that they could "persuade" CONgress to pass the losses off to the taxpeasants.

That's just what they did. Imagine that.

It’s about time the true blame for the banking mess is exposed and the ignorant sponges who continue to parrot the lies of the left face more shouting down.

Let me get this straight: Financial professionals (the Banksters) loaned money to people they KNEW couldn't afford it (NINJA loans, liar loans) because it generated fees and bonuses for the banks and the Banksters, and it's the fault of "the ignorant sponges"???

According to your logic, every professional in any field should be able to lie like a rug to their customers to maximize their profits, and if the customers lose out due to the lies and chicanery, they're just "ignorant sponges"...

Look - the problem is that the Banksters have reached the same lofty status that Big Bill Clinton achieved. They're too big to be prosecuted, AND THEY KNOW IT.

The "regulations" are a red herring. It's the "or else" part that's not being enforced.

As an example, Wachovia (now part of Wells Fargo) failed to follow US anti-money laundering laws. You or I would be doing HARD TIME for such violations. Any Banksters at Wachovia or Wells Fargo? Not so much...

How a big US bank laundered billions from Mexico's murderous drug gangs

Have you heard of the Community Reinvestment Act passed in 1979? It all but forced banks to offer loans to high-risk people, or else risk being prosecuted themselves for "discrimination". The banks then said to Uncle Sugar, "Well, are you going to back us up when the inevitable defaults hit?" And Uncle Sugar said, "Of course we will. Utopia here we come!" And it all spiraled downhill from there.

You’re right. It is a big mistake to defend the big banks. They would never have gotten so large in a free market. They are a few of the winners chosen by government policies.

First, banks were forced by government to make high risk loans. They were threatened with legal action and loss of FDIC membership. They were promised backup support from Fannie and Freddie. They had two choices, try to make the best of loaning then off-loading the loans or face bankruptcy. The major fault is from a meddling big government.
Second, the complete lack of basic financial acumen by the general public led them like sheep to slaughter to take on debt above their ability to handle it. Couple it with the general public’s living way above their means and they were destined to fail.

He’s right. Dodd and Frank set the rules that the banks had to comply with and look at the mess.
