So in other words you are saying that

  • African Americans want Hillary Clinton because they are interesting in making money in the stock market.
  • They will vote for Hillary because she has taken money from Wall Street
  • In return Hillary will support policies that gives Wall Street an unfair advantage, protect them at taxpayer expense should their risks go bad, and look the other way when they break laws.
Well that works until the next crash happens and millions lose out while the bastards who caused it get even richer.

What is it you are saying?

That no African Americans own stocks? That none of them have pensions, 401K's or other investments?

Hillary will obviously NOT support policies that give Wall street an unfair advantage.

For starters - let's get rid of Citizens United. Corporations are not people too.

Responses.
  • What am I saying? Read the post you replied to.
  • I have no idea what African American's own beyond those I know. I assume that many own stocks and bonds. But no matter, the question is irrelevant.
  • You have no idea what Hillary will do once elected. But she has gone on record and stated that she won't bring back any type of banking reform like Glass Stegall. It's quite obvious why she takes this stand.
  • If it was up to me, the entire concept of a "corporation" would be removed from American Law. But that isn't going to happen and it's also irrelevant to the topic.

Really. What is your candidate's position (Trump) on Glass Steagall? I'm not sure he's even mentioned it but perhaps it got lost there amongst his hair spray concerns.

What is the importance of Glass Steagall on this economy?

Is it your opinion that Glass Steagall was the cause of the recession? You would be entirely wrong.

Topic is not about Trump.

But there is more here.

Robert Reich - Hillary Clinton’s Glass-Steagall

The topic YOU raised was Glass Steagall and you failed to answer any of my questions.

Are these your talking points for the day?

So because Trump hasn't spoken on it, it's okay that Hillary won't reinstate it?

Poster is bashing Hillary for her position on Glass Steagall and I am curious as to the view of the poster's chosen candidate.

Do tell what is wrong with that.

What is the immediate return on reinstating Glass Steagall?

I addressed everything you asked except for anything that is off topic.

It's clear that you would rather make the issue about me or talk about Trump rather than the fact that Hillary Clinton has been bought and paid for by Wall Street. And like Obama, she will insure they continue to steal from the rest of us.

There is no justification for supporting someone like this.

I see you added to this. YOU brought up Glass Steagall and you failed to answer any questions.

Time to let it go.

You have no idea where your own candidate stands on this issue (he's NOT for reinstating Glass Steagall, by the way) so stop bashing Hillary.
