The mortgage bankers speech that Peter references:
This is 2011, not 2006. As Walt Whitman once said. I am not interested in the past, I am interested in the future." Schiff's railing on the mortgage crisis is old news now. He is rambling in this video and basically pushing typical Republican rhetoric of lowering taxes, and cutting spending. I did find it amusing how Congress ignored him when he wanted to be a witness during their investigation on the past crisis.
But hey you Schiff groupies keep on truckin.
And I expect you trolls will keep on trolling.
Criticize Schiff and get an ad hominem response from a tool.
Your response made me chuckle with its hypocrisy of attacking me for my ad hominem response with one of your own.
There is a difference though. My being a "tool" is completely subjective on your part, but you being a troll is factual. You are a troll. Not always of course, but certainly in this case.
You don't like Peter Schiff. Everyone knows that. The blog post clearly indicated that it was a Peter Schiff video blog, so it's not like you were blindsided by it. Rather than choosing to ignore it, you decided to watch it. Maybe not all of it, but enough. Then you decided to reply in a way not to illicit a discussion of the video blog, but just a snide few comments to try to provoke an emotional response. Perhaps not the "classic" defintion of a troll, but close enough.
As far as your tool comment goes, I'd rather be insulted by you than someone I respect.
Well at least you got a chuckle since that was my intention to respond in kind. But let's be realistic, nearly all your blogs are Peter Schiff videos. Yes you are a tool or at the very least (as I called you) a groupie.
I rarely blog in your video threads. I happened to do so in this one. If you don't want critical comments then don't post them.
Watch his video again without rose-colored eyeglasses. He was rambling. In the end he talked about cutting spending and lowering taxes. Please that has basically been the Republican mantra.
Now throwing a 2006 video where he called it right took place 5 years ago. He told people since the market crash to avoid US equities. Well he and those following his advice lost out on a tremendous opportunity. He told whoever would give him airtime that the Federal Govt should do nothing and let the whole system self correct despite the brutal effect it would have. Glad no one listened to him there. Maybe Mel Gibson could survive thunderdome, but what about the 80 year olds just living off Social Security?
As I told Russiangambit, I am not interested if some anonymous blogger respects me or not. I take a basic approach on this website, I try to give people completely free financial suggestions. The only agenda there is hopefully I helped someone. I also call things as I see it and will call others out, which I have done and will continue to do so unless I get kicked off the site.
