Judge Rules Tobacco Companies Must Take Out Ads Saying They Lied About Dangers Of Smoking

Each corrective ad is to be prefaced by a statement that a federal court has concluded that the defendant tobacco companies "deliberately deceived the American public about the health effects of smoking." Among the required statements are that smoking kills more people than murder, AIDS, suicide, drugs, car crashes and alcohol combined, and that "secondhand smoke kills over 3,000 Americans a year."

Obama Shouldn’t Back Down Vs. the GOP
Elections are supposed to have consequences. So why does the GOP think it can strong-arm the president into compromising on entitlements without first giving in on taxes?
The party that lost the election—lost the presidency, lost Senate seats, and yes, held on to the House, but lost seats there, too—doesn’t get to dictate terms.

Question for you. Can president nobama get thru his tax and spend program thru with out support from the house? Your solution I am sure he should bypass the constitution and issue an executive order, screw the system? Your kind of government?

Banks might have lowered rates or reduced down payments, but borrows still had to prove they could make the payments.
Any bank at anytime could make a bad loan & sell it to Fannie/Freddie. So why didn't they? Why do you think it would only be CRA loans? It shows your argument to be stupid.
It starts with three Republicans, Graham, Bailey, Leach.
It was investment houses getting into the housing market by buying questionable mortgages & bundling them to create investments. These investments were quite popular & created a demand for mortgages.
None had anything to do with the CRA.
Republicans opened the gates & then sat back & watched what should have been a housing problem become the driving force to becoming a near financial meltdown.
When you right whiners start blaming the CRA, you just probe how uneducated & uninformed you are.
There are none so blind as those who will not see. The CRA, the Obama/ACORN lawsuit, Clinton forces F and F to accept subprime mortgages, there's your causes.

In many case borrowers DID not have to show income, you're mistaken or lying.

No, not at ANYTIME could a bank fob off a bad loan to F and F, Clinton changed that to make it possible.

The government changed the rules, they forced lemons on the lenders and guess what? They made lemonade and stuck us with the bill.

Without the subprime loans and the complicity of the ratings agencies, there would be no financial shenanigans.

Without sub prime mortgages, what would the lenders have sold?

Good loans?

The CRA started it all.

RealDave you did say an honest and open discussion…Right? Than you do agree that the senate should present a budget and Reid should bring up Republicans legislation pass by the House sent to the senate that Reid has set on for the past two years to allow either an up or down vote?
"TSM"
Even "real dumb" is bright enough to realize that if Reid brought the 30 + bills passed by the house and sent to the senate were voted on most if not all would pass. That is the last thing he wants to see happen. "real dumb" hates honesty and transparency.

<quoted text>I think we should just get rid of millionaires. Round them up. Put them in camps. Romney could be first.
It is time to get rid of millionaires. Send them packing. Who needs them. They’re nothing but trouble.
President Obama has proposed a new tax on them. You’re probably thinking the same thing I am: Will this be enough to let millionaires know how much we despise them? I’m afraid not.
When the recession first hit, we knew millionaires were the culprits. They’re always behind the problems in this country. Many of us can barely sleep at night knowing that millionaires are lurking out there with hearts full of evil and pockets full of money.
Most honest men are careful to never let their net worth get anywhere near seven digits, but not millionaires. They use dark tricks like “saving” and “investing” to make their money grow to unnatural levels. It’s time someone put a stop to it!
Some say that we should just ignore the millionaires -- that they don’t harm us. Such people are naive fools, because millionaires ruin our way of life. In these tight financial times, they’ve already taken all the good jobs, which is why you and Lily have so much time to post on here all day, every day.
How many times have you or Homer applied to be a CEO to find that the position has already been filled by some millionaire?
And then they come into our neighborhoods, flashing their riches and stealing our women. Who knows what else they’ll do given free reign?
I saw this horror movie -- I forget the name -- where a billionaire dressed up as a bat and beat up poor people. How far is that from reality? Probably not far enough. In the least, I’m sure millionaires spend their evenings sitting in their Rolls Royces or dirigibles, hugging their bags of money, while pointing and laughing at our small bank accounts.
And the worst thing is knowing where millionaires got all their money: They took it from us! Millionaires create these nightmarish things called “businesses” that do nothing but find new ways to scam us out of our money.
Long ago, people were happy to live in dirt huts, but then millionaires and their businesses tricked us into needing things like indoor plumbing, electricity, cars, TVs and computers -- just so they could get more of our money. To afford these things, some of us end up working in those despicable businesses millionaires create. It’s a never-ending cycle of misery.

You got that right - the majority voted for a loser, president nobama. And you again you are right, they did not get their jobs back. Thank you democrats, the new norm;
- 8% unemployment
- More deficit spending
- More folks on food stamps
- Declining household incomes
Ypour kind of country. Enjoy!!

PS: I can hardly wait, it is not the loser nobama's fault, it is Bush's fault. Your only answer.
I wonder if way back during the Depression if there were Repubs like you all bitching "it's been 4 years and Roosevelt hasn't helped us get out of this yet". You Repubs would NEVER pass a history class.

Did you read the article from San Jose state economics dept?

"Although some people erroneous attribute the financial crisis to this mortgage default insurance and/or to securitization, these practices are perfectly legitimate and appropriate for financial markets. The problem arose because Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac were the key institutions in providing mortgage default insurance and in buying subprime mortgages. There were abuses of the derivative instruments that should have been punished by the market but were not because the perpetrators were ultimately bailed out. "

It's all there dave, read it.

Of course, to you right whiners, adding to the debt under Bush was not an issue at all.
Try some honesty, if the repubs wouldn't have passed part D, do you expect us to believe the dems wouldn't have? Since when did not having the cash to pay for something ever stop the dems? What funded the extension of unemployment payments?

Banks are in the business of making money, there were justifiable reasons for denying loans in certain areas. Why didn't all the rich black athletes, singers, rap stars, actors, get together and make loans to their brothers? Some of the rich whiteys could have chipped in too. I'm sure Buffet had a couple of billion to spare.

According to ImaginaryDave and his herd, anyone who starts and runs a business is a crook. Furthermore, the Boy Messiah is the one who will punish those crooks - except for those who are his campaign financing buddies.
