But they discriminated against blacks. The courts said so.

So, the courts voted in favor of requiring banks to issue bad loans.

Bad home loans are of two kinds. The first is where the borrower lacks the financial resources to repay the loan. The second is where the property is worth less than the loan and/or is likely to decline in value, such as in depressed neighborhoods.

Once again, politics trumps sanity.

Most people do not have a choice. Defined benefit pension plans are largely history outside of government. And virtually all government pension plans are hugely underfunded.

Over 80% of capital gains are from those with over $200k in taxable income.
Less than 13% of all tax returns show any capital gains income.

"Our Ridiculous Approach to Retirement"

"Seventy-five percent of Americans nearing retirement age in 2010 had less than $30,000 in their retirement accounts."

"Almost half of middle-class workers, 49 percent, will be poor or near poor in retirement, living on a food budget of about $5 a day"

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/22/opinion/sun...

You are such a dipschit...I want you to tell me why tens of millions of people can't figure out how to invest and retire with more than 30K?

Are they dumb, is it discrimination, or just bad luck?

I get it. You are saying:

A white family is a good loan

A black family with similar financials is a bad loan.

Now, read this very slowly because evidently you don't get it.

The banks loaned money to white families and not black families even though their financials were equal.

California assumes that its invested pension funds will produce a return of 7%-8% every year, because otherwise the state would be unable to fund the plans. Eventually the state will either default or lay off current employees to pay pensions.

Meanwhile, just party on.

In case you haven't been keeping up with current events, the Democrats are proposing to begin seizing private property to fund their redistribution of wealth government. I'm thinking you can't see the obvious flaw.
There is a finite amount of private property. Funding entitlements is infinite. There will be a time when there is no more private property to seize. So, just how will the redistribution program be funded then?
And, this is right out of Das Kapital. You'd know that if you could even define the word "Marxism".
Only someone who is so ignorant they can't even define "Marxism" isn't convinced the Democrats are Marxist communists.
