Barack Obama, our next President

I agree with that. When I said "moochers", I didn't mean to imply they are all intentionally moochers. The system is being adjusted to increase the number of people relying on the government, and to disparage the idea of being self-reliant.
Many don't want to be moochers, but the system gathers them together with the intentional moochers.
And I agree with that.

You can't be this clueless for someone who claims to have all the answers.
In 1997 Cuomo took over as HUD chief replacing Clinton appointee Henry Cisneros. During Cisneros tenure he championed Clinton’s goal of social engineering within the housing market forcing lenders to issue loans to those that would not financially qualify for the lending.
Cisneros left office in a scandal involving lying to the FBI over payouts to a mistress, Cisneros subsequently pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and though never sent to prison received a pardon from Bill Clinton in 2001.
Andrew Cuomo took the reins and not only furthered Cisneros and Clinton’s policies but greatly expanded them.
Henry Cisneros moved the GSEs toward a requirement that 42 percent of their mortgages serve low and moderate income families. Andrew Cuomo raised that number to 50 percent and dramatically hiked GSE mandates to buy mortgages for the "very-low-income."
These bad loans were purchased and sold throughout the secondary market and the pyramid grew and the bottom collapsed resulting in the subprime crisis we are still reeling from today.
In 2008, the Village Voice published a compelling report detailing Andrew Cuomo’s policy decisions “that gave birth to the country's current crisis.”

Arnold Kling, a former economist at Freddie Mac who wrote about the subprime crisis on behalf of the Cato Institute. "He [Cuomo] definitely played a role. Clearly, he decided to make a name for himself by trying to push the envelope."
Russ Roberts, an economics professor at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va.: "He [Cuomo] put the kindling on the fire. What the requirements on Freddie and Fannie did was to push up the price of housing and that made it possible to lend money to people with no money down."
...You can't seriously be saying all of these people are wrong and you aren't.
He definitely played a role, turns out however that it was a very small role for while he did increase the percentage of so called risk loans they were being managed properly under his watch and most were current when he left. Mel Martinez would then have played even a larger role and I've never heard of anyone placing Martinez on the blame list.

It was the Graham-Leach_Bliley Act (1999) that set the mortgage calamity in motion, Graham was a powerful Senator from Texas who "all" the experts place very highly on the blame list.

Whatever, my original post re: Cuomo was that today he would be a far better candidate for POTUS than anyone currently on the (R) list.

One of these days I suspect you'll link one of Paul Izzo's insane NY Post rants to back up one of your looney posts.

To be fair, not all are moochers - just jobless. Even if only some of the economic seers are right, 600,000 more jobs will be lost after the cliff deal.
Those of us who have jobs and have to work will be carrying a heavier load in lieu of the increasing number of victims of this administration's policies.
We shouldn't be where we are now no matter how bad the housing market crisis was four years ago. But considering Obama won on the issue of abortion and birth control pills, it's no wonder.
i fully agree and your last sentence sums it all up, except i'd add:

Obama could not run on his record and only won on the issues of abortion, free birth control pills and by demonizing his opponent, it's no wonder.

If you had any knowledge outside what you are indoctrinated with by those duping you, you would be well aware that there is a correlation between concentration of wealth and education level of the population.
It is an uncontestable fact that the United States has the most expensive education system in the world. It is another uncontestable fact that education system produces the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world. And, it is another uncontestable fact that education system has been in constant decline for more than 40 years without a single year of improvement.

An idiot can predict that such a system producing an increasingly ignorant population will result in the wealth migrating to a smaller percentage of the population.

That is why it appears as if the wealth is increasingly in the possession of a smaller and smaller percentage of the people.

You are being duped into believing it is because of the increasing power of what Karl Marx referred to as the bourgoise.

It does not matter what economic and/or social ideology is employed. The more ignorant a population is, the smaller the percentage of the population having disproportionate priviledges (maney, assets, etc.) will be.

If you want to fix the problem, you have to fix the education system. To fix the education system, we have to stop doing what we've been doing for the past 40 years.
If you can't think of anything different to do, then just go back to doing what we were doing when we had the unquestionably best education system in the world before the so-called "progressives" took control of it a little more than 40 years ago.

It's affordable, all right. Affordable for those that won't pay a goddam dime for it.
Perhaps you missed it when your Congressman warned you about the national sales tax beginning on the first of the year before the election. Come to think of it, I don't recall any member of Congress warning anyone about the national sales tax beginning on the first of the year.
YOu will now commence paying the first of the several Obama taxes.
Look on the next receipt you get from, oh, say Walmart for a line item titled "Medical excise tax".
That's the national Obama sales tax.
Next, let's look at the deal between the Democrats and RINOs that increase the deductions and exemptions that allow that 47 percent of the population to continue mooching off the other half of the population. I'm betting the increased deductions and exemptions actually increased that 47 percent.
Perhaps we will have for the first time ever a situation where fully half the population is moochers.
Well, just who is supposed to make the economy work when half the population is f**k*ng moochers?
I'll look for that-if such will go to helping those, who don't mind doing their part, but can't, or those who are truly UNable to afford current free market prices, due to LACK of a stable economy and/or opportunities, good enough.
At least EVERYONE is having to pay such, NOT just "some". I shall opine further here in saying that I think Many "working class" type Americans backs are already broken down, to the point of needing "NO more DUMPING burdens of others IGNORANCE" signs posted upon them. Maybe the Ignorant ones will get a clue then.
Why should the honest and always hard working ones have to bare the burden for others STUPIDITY and ignorance, any more than what they already have had to for years.
It's about time the SLACKERtic types HAVE to pay for their "entitleMENTALed" diseases and disorders too...especially in this lousy economy of rotten job markets...a market at it's WORST looks like to some of us -in 30 years.

Ah don't patronize Walmart much though--finding the essentials of pretty much just groceries, often WAYYYYYYYY overpriced for overdone packaging, UNeconomical, INefficiant, and Just soooo NOT worth it.

Good to see members of both parties together on an issue close to the heart of the American people.

In a joint statement,
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R)
and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) criticized the House of Representatives for failing to pass a package to provide billions in aid for Hurricane Sandy damage before adjourning Tuesday night.

After walking back his scathing criticism of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) over Hurricane Sandy relief aid, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) on Thursday shifted his tough talk toward one of the legislation's most vocal opponents, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA).

On Wednesday, Issa defended Boehner for adjourning the House on Tuesday night before taking up the relief package and denounced the bill for being "packed" with pork, a charge that the New York lawmaker sought to refute during an appearance on CNN.

First of all, with all due respect, Darrell Issa is 1,000 percent wrong. There is absolutely no pork in the bill. There were some items that were added in the senate involving Alaska, which is less than one percent of the bill. Even though it's only one percent of the bill, every one of those items was removed from the House bill and I wish Darrell Issa had learned that and looked into that before he went public and said that my constitituents should not get their homes rebuilt, should not have the waste management plants rebuild, that Gov.[Chris] Christie should not be given the opportunity to rebuild New Jersey and Gov.[Andrew] Cuomo in New York. Every dollar that Gov. Christie, Gov. Cuomo and Mayor [Michael] Bloomberg requested has been documented, the speaker will tell you that, the majority leader will tell you that. There is no pork and to somehow say that $33 billion is pork, Darrell Issa, with all due respect is 1,000 percent wrong. I say that again: 1,000 percent wrong. The speaker disagrees with him, and if he wants to take it up with somebody, call Gov. Christie.

.... dufusses.... goddam dufusses.

The Glass Steagall Act had the same function as an imune system has. It stops diseases from spreading and killing the host.
The Graham-Leach-Bliley Act merely eliminated the Glass Steagall Act immune system, which allowed the Democrats' Marxist equal-outcome subprime housing mortgage underwriting program to grow into the cancer it bacame that obviously was the cause of the eocnomic collapse of 2008.
This was predicted by the New York Times in 1999.
