Learn how to point those things, guys. Stick with what you're good at, like blowing up wedding parties and killing innocent men, women, and children.

Big deal! I could lead police to someone who didn't kill Kennedy, myself!

Do you have a reading disorder, Line? Fannie and Freddie were a SMALL SHARE of the subprimes.

Let me repeat the fact I stated earlier:
In 2006, for example, more than 84 percent of the subprime mortgages came from private lending institutions and the share of subprime loans insured by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac decreased as the bubble got bigger.

Got that through your thick skull, Line? 84 percent of the subprimes were NOT from Fannie or Freddie, and the share that WERE from Fannie and Freddie DECLINED AS THE BUBBLE GOT BIGGER.

Are we clear now? Good.

Plus you're broke and/or unemployed, thanks largely to rampant (and unpunished) criminality on Wall Street that is enabled by both the Republicans and Democrats.

You're not paying attention. Both parties are bought and paid for by the 1% . Both the incumbents AND the challengers are in their debt because they both depend on their campaign contributions.

Look at Obama. He was not an incumbent. He promised to reform the worst abuses by the Bush Administration. For example, he said he would end the Bush tax cuts. But we know how that turned out, don't we? Those tax cuts on the rich are still in effect, and Obama has continued the pro-Wall Street policies of the Bush administration.

The Democrats are not blameless. They are bought off just like the Republicans.

It's not an "ideological blame game," but let's give the "credit" where credit is due. All three authors of the Financial Services Act of 1999 were Republicans. The Congress that passed the Financial Services Act of 1999 was Republican controlled in both House and Senate.

However, the fact that the Dems did not re-enact Glass-Steagall or something like it during the first two years of the Obama administration demonstrates why Occupy is necessary: you can't vote against the banks. BOTH parties are owned by them.

We got WTO-like riots predicted by JumpStart above, and Sid is predicting the closing of Macy's.

I should remind you guys of Yogi Berra's famous warning: "Predictions are hard, especially about the future."
