All colors and cultures are affected by the nations preference for prosecution and community control.

It was much different when I was young__some of the really fun stuff back then would be a felony these days. Even when my son was young the system cut kids a little slack on the small stuff.

In some regions blacks have been hit particularly hard by the legal system, in other regions Hispanics and even Asians have been dealt with more harshly than white kids for the same legal infractions.

The result is that "we have" created a group of young people that are not employable in traditional government or private sector jobs and are left to drift around working half azzed jobs or hustling.

Add to that the growing number of children whose low IQ's are the result of drug addicted mothers.

More to the point, why should middle America hire the very people who are pushing for the government to steal their assets?

To be clear Homer does not mistake rightwingers for conservatives.
Galt believes in the use of exaggeration to illustrate leftwing absurdity.

Realtime does not have a conservative bone in his body, a total phony.

You nitwit!!

You didn't even read your own link!!!

""Sen. Richard Shelby (R., Ala.):[T]he federal government has [an] ambiguous relationship with the GSEs. And how do we actually get rid of that ambiguity is a complicated, tricky thing. I don't know how we do it.

I mean, you've alluded to it a little bit, but how do we define the relationship? It's important, is it not?""

Or this:

"Sen. Robert Bennett (R., Utah): I think we do need a strong regulator. I think we do need a piece of legislation. But I think we do need also to be careful that we don't overreact.

I know the press, particularly, keeps saying this is another Enron, which it clearly is not. Fannie Mae has taken its lumps. Fannie Mae is paying a very large fine. Fannie Mae is under a very, very strong microscope, which it needs to be.... So let's not do nothing, and at the same time, let's not overreact."

I see two Republiclowns defending Fannie and Freddy and being very casreful about making changes. DUH

Fanny was created in 1938, and helped millions of Americans buy homes after WWII.

Freddie was created in 1970, under Nixon.

It wasn't until Bush destroyed the economy that people couldn't pay their mortgages.

Bush's own 'ownership society' policies made loans to people who shouldn't have gotten them.

It all starts and ends with Bush.

In spite of your illiterate attempts to show otherwise.

Here's the facts, dufus:
Here is a link where you can actually read the quotes from the Democrats when they were negotiating with the Republicans with outright lies to get no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program that was an obvious failure in 2003:
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1222905743912...
Now, this will require that you think for yourself and draw your own conclusion about what the above facts mean:
In 2003 the Democrats supported Bush and the war in Iraq.
In 2003 the Republicans supported the Democrats' Marxist subnprime loan program.
Do you think there was a connection there?
Considering the fact that it was the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing loan program that collapsed our economy, what lessons do you think we should have learned from the above facts of history?
Now, "unfunded wars"....
Please tell us about the two different enemies in these supposed multiple wars.
Who was the enemy in each war?
And, please don't forget to tell us who started that ONE war.
And, you can congratulate our Armed Forces for a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED when they removed Saddam Hussien from power.
Now, go to this webiste and tell us about the annual deficits from the time the Arabs started that ONE war to January, 2007, when the Democrats took full control of all the purse strings of the government.
Then, tell us what the Democrats did to the deficit and total debt since.

A oil industry subsidy denier. Funny how Republican leaders talk about these subsidies. Even the head of the API says if we cut these subsidies, it would cost jobs.
If we subsidize the oil industry 2.5 billion a year & if there are 60,000 oil industry employees, how much of your salary is subsidized???
Quit suckling off the teat of government. Show you have some self worth. Get a job where you actually earn your salary.
Identify one specific subsidy available to the oil industry and not to other industries.

ALL subsidies should be eliminated.

For you, but then, you're an idiot!!

Obama's policies have rewarded me splendidly!! I did well under Bush, but far better under Obama!! Obama helped make me a millionaire!!

Of course, your fear and ignorance is what holds you back.

Had you not waited for the market to hit 6800, you might have made some money.

But you did and you didn't. LOL

Your being a loser is all on you.

Ryan/GOP cuts would throw a combined 600,000 poor children off of food stamps and Medicaid. Literally, Paul Ryan is trying to protect the defense industry by starving hundreds of thousands of economically disadvantaged children.
The “smarter cuts” that Rep. Ryan is touting would slash food stamps, and throw 300,000 children off the program. The cuts are so extensive that they would eliminate food assistance for 1.8 million adults and children. Ryan’s cuts would also eliminate Meals on Wheels, federal funding for child protective services, and healthcare for disabled adults and children.
Children may have a “right to life” in the Republican Party, but the conservative culture of life doesn’t include food. If kids want to eat, they’re on their own.
The only starving children in America are the school children forced to survive the school day on the inadequate Moochelle school lunch diet.

In Pennyslvania 2012 elections.

Democratic House candidates received 2.7 million votes vs 2.6 million votes for Republican candidates.

Republicans won 13 districts & the Democrats won 5.

Ummmmm. I wonder, how did that happen?

Two Democrats won by over a 80& % margin, one had over a 50% margin.

Only one Congressional race was won with less than a 10 point margin.

Its called gerrymandering or cheating., Rigging elections.

Something the Republicans know they need to do to win because they have no ideas & have a record of nearly killing this country under Bush.

'Galt believes in the use of exaggeration to illustrate leftwing absurdity.' You would think you'd be having a field day with these rightwingers. I guess Galt won't pick on the weakest of the herd.
