I hope it's better than the joke he played on us. Did I say joke? Ooops, I meant fraud that caused the collapse of the savings and loan industry and cost the taxpayers $1.3 billion.

@SongFan svan (in English): You are not prepared!

Ha! good 'un, Goldfarmer.

So after farking up the S&L sector, causing massive economic damage and never seeing any real negative repercussions from his actions Neil Bush went on to have "a long and lucrative history working with Chinese state-owned companies"?

How very bootstrappy of him.

Huh. An industry collapsed, and somehow the taxpayers ending up holding the bag you say? I wonder how that happens in an economic system like ours. TAXPAYERS ended up holding the bag, you say?

Ah yes, the other Bush brother. The one who figured out that being a president's son is about 10x more fun and lucrative than being either the president or the heir apparent. 

Kind of figures he has a trolltastic sense of humour.

Genius runs in families.

It's only fair that stupidity does, too.

And unfortunately stupidity seems to reproduce faster and more frequently than genius does.

Oh, that Scamp Neil! It's always something with him -- getting herpes, corporate fraud, hanging out with John Hinckley Jr.'s brother THE VERY farkING DAY REAGAN WAS SHOT... 50 lashes with a wet noodle, Neil!

This is the Bush family we are talking about....

OF COURSE it involved Coke
 
2012-08-28 07:50:11 AM
Everyone should remember that Neil is the 'smart' one.
 
2012-08-28 07:52:27 AM
I though Neil died on saturday.
 
2012-08-28 08:27:00 AM
Does it involve strange Chinese wimmen who come to his hotel room, have sex and leave? Cause the very same thing happened to Prescott. Weird.

My father made China a Most Favored Trading Partner and all I got was this hat, mug, book bag and a couple of million in kickbacks.

Ah, yes. Neil "Silverado Savings & Loan" Bush, whom the US Office of Thrift Supervision determined had engaged in numerous "breaches of his fiduciary duties involving multiple conflicts of interest."

I have that bag with me right now. I work on a military base. It's my Glorious Leader Lunch Bag.

People ask me what it says.

I tell them; "We kicked round eyes ass at Pearl Harbour"

Over the years only a handful of people have said; "Hey, wait a minute..."

That's a small part compared to all the others that failed, besides he never had anything much to do with running the bank and was on their board. But people have to shiat on Republicans because they are supposedly evil, like the comment about the Communist uniforms, the left acts like their chosen bullshiat artists somehow were poor and were voted into office because they are so trustworthy.

One sides bullshiat artists are just as bad as the others bullshiat artists.

I forget where it came from but I remember reading a quote that's said "You can tell which side is trying to control you by which opinion is being silenced" I even find it ironic because if I remember it was about the church silencing critics hundreds of years ago. Everything comes full circle I guess.

Of course, people mock what they don't understand or simply refuse to accept.

One side is trying to be silenced by shouting them down, anyone with common sense would be asking themselves why but everyone just goes along since it agrees with their current value system.

They only care about making money.

Idiots run rampant in that family. Babs Bush should have visited Planned Parenthood, taken the moron gene test.

One of the NCOs in my unit used to build model warships. We were out floating around on a LHD and the squids complained because he was passing the time making a model of the IJN Nagato. So he made a USS Missouri model, whacked it a hammer a few times and put it up on display one shelf under the Nagato.

Ah, the Bush family - making America worse, one day at a time.

Remember when we all picked on Billy Carter because he had the audacity to exploit his family name to sell beer?

Man, compared to Neil Bush, I'd give my left nut to have someone like Billy Carter around.

Had to laugh at that.

I love all the contempt for anyone Bush. Yet the same critics regarding Obama counter with "Nuance". Extended war? Guantanamo Bay? Rendition? Killing an American citizen overseas in an assassination?
All terrible stuff if you are a Bush, but somehow acceptable if you are not.

The US Office of Thrift Supervision investigated Silverado's failure and determined that Bush had engaged in numerous "breaches of his fiduciary duties involving multiple conflicts of interest." Although Bush was not indicted on criminal charges, a civil action was brought against him and the other Silverado directors by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation; it was eventually settled out of court, with Bush paying $50,000 as part of the settlement, as reported in the Style section of the Washington Post.[4]

A Republican fundraiser set up a fund to help defer costs Neil incurred in his S&L dealings.[5]

yeah, sitting on the board and forcing the bank to make loans to an oil prospecting company that he was a partner in... which then failed to find oil and went bankrupt.. no that sounds legit... that's just how banks work.

How about this: We pass a law requiring a full legal investigation into the activities and backgrounds of potential candidates, and barring any with any unlawful activity or convictions from holding office?

I see this one hauled out every once in a while and it bothers me... yes there might have been democratic legislation that 'encouraged' banks to make a small percentage of loans to people who might otherwise have been turned down in order to buy a house. we will count that as a fact... however... what then happened in the subprime mortgage mess was that Wall street, specifically Goldman, Lehman Bros, Bear Stearns... discovered the unregulated world of CDO's and credit default swaps and drove the demand for any and all mortgages (since they were 'bundling' them into CDO's and selling them to institutional investors worldwide at A or AA ratings... ) to the point where most 'banks' became loan originators who just took a fee for every mortgage they processed and then sold the mortgage to someone up the chain... and since they didn't own the loan and the wall street firms didn't care about the quality of the loan... the guys on the bottom were encouraged to write bad loans... and collect a fee... the bad loan wasn't theirs to collect so they didn't care.

the subsequent meltdown and subprime crisis was not in the least bit the result of the new legislation... it was very much the result of greed and GOP deregulation of financial markets.

the only caveat would be that Neil never ran for any office... but he, Marvin and W all suddenly turned into financial wizards while daddy was vp and even more so when daddy became president... funny how that works.

it's almost like people were just throwing money at them...

Don't you think it's strange that not one, not two but THREE members of the Bush family farked up the U.S. economy?

Vote for Jeb.

Yeah, the Bush family should have been more like President Kennedy. You know, dropping the top marginal tax rate to improve the economy.
