Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

So there was never a Carter recession?
Bush's unfunded spending, Bush's unfunded tax cuts, Bush's unfunded wars had nothing to do with it.
Nope.
It was all because some gullible people believed their bank when they said they could afford that mortgage.
No there wasn't a Carter "recession", the labeled term of economy in that era was "stagflation", a stagnant economy coupled with inflation--AND a MAJOR OIL embargo (due to mid-east dependency).

But ya know what, there were still JOBS...because I had about three or four over the course of those years lol.

I don't think "gullible" is an appropriate term either. IGNORANT seems more apropo (even if it isn't a very nice descriptive). Should banks (or ANYONE) take advantage of people like that? NO-and shame on those who do! BUT, therein again-we arrive back to the concept of people accepting PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for that which they two-step willing into themselves as well.

And for the umpteenth time---WE did NOT "start the fiyahs"..."they were always burning since the world's been turning" (to quote Billy Joel). My God duh A Vey, are you not old enough to remember the oil wells Saddam set afire in the early 90's, and are you that blind as to ignore the FACTS of all the bin_laden initiated pre-9/11 terrorist attacks??

KEYSTONE Duh A Vey?

The oil has to roll from somewhere...might as well be northern continental. LESS hassle that way.

Yeah ago like they are just going to sit there and leave the gun in the car. Teenager aren't that dumb. All I know is from reading all the news stories down there he thought he saw a gun and feared for his life. Why would he pump 9 shots into a car on his son's wedding day otherwise?

Never saw someone so scared of old white people.

What happened?

Gramma stole your shoes?

Grampa took your bike?

You guy are MORE afraid of "old white people" than you are of the jihadi's.

Or would you be sad it was not you shooting them?

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.
The redline area CRA loans were statistically more sound than the voluntary loans. Financial institutions worked the system - increasing their CRA loans to improve their rankings. Put credit where it is due - in large part it was the lender practices with risky VOLUNTARY loans that caused the problem, not the legislation that did not prohibit those practices. The financial institutions weren't making lemonade - they planted the groves.

The police found no weapon in the car or the area and the news videos have police and witnesses all over the place. Why was the guy out of his car? Why did he bolt, driving 150 miles to his home where he was eventually arrested?

His attorney introduced the shotgun story___jacksonville.com/

Interesting is that Angela Corey of George Zimmerman fame is the States Attorney for JAX.

Not real versed on weapons. Are sawed off shotguns legal? Did the white guy have it in his car? SO easy to speculate as we weren't there. A tragedy all around.
