no regulation required...the bankers should require a 20% cash down payment before granting a mortgage...a sound business practice.....
of course, the left would squeal that such financial responsibility would discriminate against minorities....
Yet again, I urge you to investigate the CRA, redline area loans and the G-L-B Act before you make more squealing noises about what you obviously don't know.

FEMA is not on everyone's mind.
The physical damage from the storm was minimal. The only problems are with the electrical infrastructure that didn't get updated with the 860 billion dollars Obama spent on "Porkulus".
It's only those Democrats that want to pretend Obama's empty chair abandoned the Americans fighting Al Qaeda in Libya never happened.
It seems the weak hurricane story is fading fast. Your political cow is running out of milk.
Back to the important issues....
Who in the White House told Susan Rice what to say all over the television networks and at the UN?
It obviously wasn't Obama.
Who is making the decisions our empty chair should be making?
Who do you think it is?
Christie seems interested

Republicans look at the disaster in the northeast and think 'how can we blame Obama'.
Let's start with Obama spending more money on "Porkulus" than the total spent on the war in Iraq from the beginning in 2003 through the end of 2010, and getting nothing for it.
No infrastructure built/rebuilt/upgraded.
A problem that has been known to exist since the first hurricane blew down the first power line hung from a pole in the air is, the power lines need to be put underground.
Did the power lines get put underground with the 860 billion dollars Obama spent on "Porkulus"?
Nope.
So, just what infrastructure did we get built/rebuilt/upgraded with Obama's "Porkullus"?
... nothing.
No shovel-ready projects completed?
... nothing.

If Obama had spent "Porkulus" money on actual jobs instead of stuffing full the pockets of Democrat cronies with more money that the total of money spent on the war in Iraq, then the power lines in the northeast would be underground today, and we wouldn't have 20 million people without power today after a weak hurricane passed through.

Yup. That looks like Obama's fault.

So, what you're saying is, the Romney reached into its own pockets and contributed 5,000 dollars to the relief effort.
How much did Obama's campaign contribute?
That is equal to the total number of votes in Congress for all 2 of Obama's budgets he submitted of the 4 we hired him to submit in the 4 years he's been golfing around the White House - ZERO.
That's NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH.
Yup. Typical Democrat. "I'm not supposed to help. I'm just supposed to tell you what to do to help. All of you have to do everything to help. I'm just hear to make noise with my mouth."
The Barack Hussein Obama Campaign? Romney donated out of his own pocket?

requiring a 20% cash down payment would prevent most of the problems regardless of any legislation....

if a bank feels that loans in a given neighborhood are too risky, regardless of the reason, then they should not make the loans....

for example, a prudent bank would not make loans in high-risk flood zones.....

I have not shopped at Walmart in many years. They do not provide a living wage to their employees, and do not provide them with the hours necessary to afford them the possibility of insurance.

I make it a point to shop local

The midget dkhead thinks 5000 is a lot of money.
Yeah azzhole, you're living the dream.
Too bad it's all bullshit.
5000 dollars is 5000 dollars more than zero dollars, which is the sum total of donations from Obama and his minions for relief for the people who are distressed because Obama wasted all the money in "Porkulus" and didn't upgrade their infrastructure by doing something like putting their electrical network underground.

Yup. Romney 5000, Obama f**k*ng zero... again.

More about the Hypocrite & Chief...

'Politics of insult' alive and well despite Obama's 2008 lament

Four years ago, then-candidate Barack Obama decried what he described as "the politics of insult." But lately, there have been more than a few insults flying on the 2012 campaign trail

You can send it to me in payments, I'll let you know the interest rate (for the duration of your pathetic life) you will owe me on that as well.
