    It’s Capitalism/Reaganism (US Fascism) that’s the mistake.

    The mistake is voting for the same failed 2-party system of endless
    lie-based war, poverty, pollution, and eradication of human rights. Most
    Americans don’t vote. Of those who do vote, the majority of them don’t even
    register as Democrat or Republican anymore. And polls show the majority of
    voters want an alternative option. Yet unfair election laws, media
    bias/media blackout, and an uneducated voting public perpetuate the failed
    2-party system charade.

    You should include Michael Lewis in the title. He’s done much more than
    just write The Big Short. I know it’s relevant now but he’s a celebrity in
    literature world.

    Stephen’s Hillary bias shows once again. He falsely claimed that Hillary
    wants to break up the big banks (she takes their $$, she won’t do it), but
    failed to mention that Bernie Sanders (who was on the show) actually does
    want to break up the big banks. BERNIE 2016 #FeelTheBern

    Stephen is advertising the shit out of this movie. First Carrell, main
    actor, then Adam McKay, director, then Michael Lewis, the writer. Who’s he
    gonna have on next? The Big Short’s costume designer?

    The banks wouldn’t have had to bailout if Rich just gave SweatyCowNipples
    their 200 cucumbers.

    Well, whatever we didn’t fix, and we didn’t fix anything, it’s coming
    around the corner to hit us harder. Soon.

    Yesterday the director says banks are too big to fail due to the way the
    system works and world chaos would follow if they were broken apart. Today
    the writer didn’t share the same doom and gloom but did point out that
    lobby money keeps these people running banks. The Animal Farm quote “All
    animals are equal but some are more equal than others” keeps repeating in
    my head.

    Of course on a video where talk about economic disasters brought about by
    government doing too much, Bernie Sanders is still getting complimented.

    I’m not supporting anyone in this election, but good God if y’all don’t see
    how fucked that dude’s policies are, especially in a deficit we’re in
    already.
