Wasn't there a guy who posted on here a few months ago... maybe it was the guy taking pictures of these odd graphs on his computer screen. something about the time wave or something. I swer it was probably that guy who was saying the stock market would crash in Sept 08...
It was either him or... oh wait I think it was ACTUALLY Benjamin Fulford. Look at this I just found out of pure dumb blind luck:
Bejamin Fulform on Looming US Bankruptcy
This isn't the statement I'm talking about, but regarding Sept... looks like Benjamin Fulford is concerned. I have always believed this guy... and wow, I'm a little speechless because I think he called it POSSIBLY.
Edit to add: "possibly" at the end.

Understand the topic? DNC regurgitation? Are you kidding me?
Do you remember back in 2004 when one of the major platforms Bush ran on was the fact that "American Home ownership" is at an all time high, and all Americans should be able to own a home".
Well, he got his wish. Due to historic DEregulation, by a REPUBLICAN congress and REPUBLICAN White House, the chickens are coming home to roost.
You see, all of those bogus mortgages that people were so easily able to attain were bought up in record numbers by firms like Lehman, Merrill and others. Heard of little institutions like Fannie and Freddie? Right...
So don't sit there and tell me I don't know anything about the topic. A little introspection would serve you well.
As a result, the so called "free market" capitalism that the conservatives have toted since the Regan administration has completely become a "socialized" form of monetary system.
LET ME REPEAT - the Republicans have forced the free market into a socialistic financial system where companies can run themselves into the ground by ripping off Americans and then TAX the same Americans they ripped off to foot the bill while the CEO's and shareholders put cash in the bank.

The Republicans didn't set the interest rate to near 2% avg. for the last 2 decades. And Democrats have had control of congress outright, for 2 years. Don't toss Fannie and Freddie out like they are creations of a free market, FDR created both of them, ever hear of the "New Deal"? Democrats love to talk about how wonderful that stupid idea was.

And you might want to look a little deeper into history, rather than distrubute hand picked statistics to support your personal conclusions.
Like I said, you can't have a rate that low, for that long, and think nothing will come of this. Democrats, and Clinton have the same amount of blame for the current admin.
