    It`s more like if you give the man the bank and he figures out how to get in bed with the government and actually convince them and the public that if you are on the verge of losing a lot of money because of your own ineptitude that the world will collapse, then you can rob the world.

    Wake up, Andrew... bankers have been robbing the world ever since the business was conceived. It just gets much worse when they are rich enough to buy the government.

    So, if this were the situation as you suggest, you don`t fault the government for being corrupt as well?

    @Andrew

    It`s even more like forcing the banks to lower their underwriting standards (against their will), artificially increasing demand by flooding the market with cheap credit and incentives, and then buying up a huge number of bad loans to keep the cycle going.

    I can`t see how that could possibly go wrong.

    Assuming "Rob" is the only option, "Gun" the only tool, "Bank" the only target and "World" the only goal. You think so small, Grasshoppa. Why not the universe..Bwaaaaaahahahahaha.....

    So, we should take away the guns and nationalize the banks? Where have I heard.that before? Oh yeah, Germany, around 1933. Good plan, Adolph.

    Pfft! Nobody "gives you" a bank! Typical hippie idiocy... (sorry @SoD: I doubt you intended that message!)

    @AvatarJohn: Worked for Hugo Chavez too! One of the FIRST things he did was round up ALL the guns... then nationalize stuff! Now Venezuela has the LOWEST crime rate on EARTH (hint: sarcasm!).

    "you don`t fault the government for being corrupt as well?"

    Did I say that? Or anything remotely like that? I just double checked... Nope, sure didn`t. Please don`t assume so much so easily.

    Didn`t notice the question mark at the end did you? (<---- Question Mark).

    Are you familiar with how questions work? Well, when one person wants to ask another person something that the first person is not entirely sure about, the second person asks a question.

    yeah, right... okay, we`ll play your game.

    A question mark does not always necessarily denote a question, does it? It could be considered rhetorical, or sarcastic, or perhaps even challenging, especially when phrased as a statement such as "you don`t" instead of the customary questioning form of "do you" or "would you". In the future, if you are truly questioning as you claim, then you might consider phrasing it slightly less... how shall I say... dickishly?

    Yes - it does. A rhetorical question, which this was not, is still a question none-the-less.

    In the future, if you are truly questioning as you claim, then you might consider phrasing it slightly less... how shall I say... dickishly?
    The manner in which the question was phrased is perfectly acceptable per English standards. Perhaps it is you who should not assume so much? (<---- Question Mark*)

    *NOTE: This question mark denotes a question.

    @chalket:

    "A question mark does not always necessarily denote a question, does it?"

    Yes, it does actually. Even if it is "rhetorical, or sarcastic, or perhaps even challenging" a question mark denotes a interrogatory statement that carries the force of a question that must be answered. Henry Denham attempted to make a separate mark for rhetorical questions yet linguists phased it out in the 17th century. So we can not separate from text if @HumanAction was actually being rhetorical or not. Yet, rhetorical questions were still at that time, and still are today, a form of question.
    The rhetorical question mark looked like this,though. Basically, a reverse question mark.



    Does that answer your question? Lol

    awww, screw you both.
    @HA, you KNOW your comment was a challenge and not an actual question, stop being an ass about it.

    Except it wasn`t; you incorrectly assumed that. There will be absolutely no doubt about my intentions when I am trying to be an ass - see my second comment for an example of such.
