Was it the poor who crashed the global economy with unregulated gambling?

mortgage-backed securities, and credit default swaps/insurance? If so, did they get nice 7-figure bonus checks for crashing the economy, like the bankers awarded to themselves?

    Yes, the neo-con way of thinking: blame the poor. The rich are faultless and our friends the big banks and corporations would do fine if they all died and we had just the middle class to tax and to buy things. Them damned old poor people ruin EVERYTHING!

    It was those unfortunate unwashed poor and uneducated louts who lost all of their welfare checks to video poker that torpedoed our economy. Get real, please. Let's get rid of these losers by sending them to a vocational school where they can learn how to put golden parachutes together for the truly deserving. I am sick and tired of hearing the same communist defeatist drivel from you Groucho Marx and John Lennon advocates. I myself am hot to trot for Trotsky.

    if a casino plays a game it can't win... is it the casino's fault or the people who play when the casino goes broke?

    simply put, these banks should have known better and they violated many basic banking rules...
