    the 2008 financial crisis wasn't caused by the big banks. it happened because too many people were buying houses they couldn't afford. and that's a fact.

    The best part of this is the workflow.

    Banks destroy the economy --> Bribed government bails out the banks --> Public fury leads to rise of the tea party --> Fox hijacks tea party --> Fox tells tea party to vote for Dump --> Dump unleashes the banks again --> ...

    It's so beautiful. It's like watching a plague spread while the victims burn the cats that would have controlled the rat population and saved them.

    We should have gotten rid of the stupid people before they destroyed the world.

    Note to self: do that next time.

    Also, the article stated many of these farmers are still recovering from 2008 and don't have the savings necessary to switch from soybeans to another crop, which could lead to massive sell off of farms and farm land.

    With the futures dropping, some are predicting a 400 point drop at opening tomorrow.

    Side note some people may not find interesting; I had a wonderful conversation at lunch with a co-worker who is from the Ukraine. Gave me some back history of his homeland and how Kiev and the Ukraine have evolved over the centuries. One interesting bit was during the height of old Russia, large groups of Ukrainians were killed. So much so that whole villages and towns were abandoned. So Russia started moving Russians into these towns. Then the Soviet Union takes hold... Then the breakup. Ukraine wants it's independence back. Only now, half of the territory of the Ukraine is Russian not Ukrainian. Russians, not knowing independence, wants to stay Russian. Putin takes power in Russia, and strong arms the Ukrainian Government by saying that the Ukrainian Government isn't listening to half of its citizens, the ones that want to stay Russian.

    Also, he explained how Moscow and those connected to Putin are very well off, but outside of that bubble, everyone is poor. There is no middle class.

    He then said he's noticed this country trending that way recently and that he "got out of that situation once, I'll leave it again if I need to," and then wished me a good rest of my day.

    This has been very true with most any leader in communist Russia.

    Well, with you wishing the farmers to go bankrupt, that's not exactly helping.
