The Nature and the Origin
of the Subprime Mortgage Crisis
There has been a long term American policy of promoting home ownership. This entailed making the financing of home purchases as easy as possible. Various financial institutions were set up over time to make the securing of a mortgage quick and convenient. There once were Savings and Loan Associations that were savings institutions which could only invest in home mortgages. Fannie Mae (the Federal Nation Mortgage Association FNMA) was set up in 1938 to provide a secondary market for home mortgages. This meant that if a bank granted a mortgage to someone and later the bank needed funds the bank could readily sell the mortgage to Fannie Mae. However, in order for lending institutions to have access to the secondary mortgage market of Fannie Mae they had to abide by Fannie Mae's rules.
In the past Fannie Mae prohibited the lenders it was dealing with to engage in the practice of red lining. Red Lining meant that a bank would refuse to finance a home purchase in neighborhoods it consider high risk even if the prospective borrowers were themselves good credit risks. In part, this was because the bank did not want, in the event of default and foreclosure, to become the owner of property in a risky neighborhood. The deeper roots of the problem go back to the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977.

This is where it all started , reparations, typical liberal something for nothing, something for the taxpayers to pick up the tab for, get with it davey, you're embarrassing yourself with your willful ignorance.
I get it.

Banks could not use race to discriminate so it created the recession.

You are truly one dumb f*cking idiot.

I assure you some bleeding heart liberal would have objected.
They spared Holmes because he was just standing there with his arms down at his side and wasn't threatening them. He essentially surrendered when the cops got there. And i'm not sticking up for him, I'd like to see the loved ones of the victims take him out and string him up.
It's my opinion that the way we have mollycoddled vicious killers for the last 4 decades have emboldened these creeps, fear of physical violence to themselves would be the best preventer of these senseless slaughters happening.
When I was a boy if some creep would have harmed a child a group of the neighborhood toughs would have paid him a visit and beat him senseless. He would never have harmed a child again I assure you.
I agree. I also think that if someone molests your child and you kill him, that you should not be charged. If someone rapes you and you kill him, same thing.

Why the lies? You know the audience for all those idiotic shows is young, low information democrat voters.
No mature, employed, tax paying republicans would watch that crap.
I highly doubt that the audience is young people. It's older uneducated hicks, white trash, who are usually republicans

More than 800 new laws went into effect in Kalifornia on January 1.

It will now be impossible for anyone to know which law they are breaking.

Anyone want to argue that liberals don't destroy freedom and micromanage people's lives?

Why are you such a phoney, you said you were going to give us all a break from the crap you spew. But one more time you lie, you just continue to rant. Another lie, you claimed you ran "carol" off and guess what, the post immeadiately after your lie was from "carol".
Do you feel like a big man when you slur and demean "carol"? You would not make a wart on a man's azs.

You're one of these idiots:
"Birthers Suggest Impeaching Chief Justice John Roberts"
The birther movement is now targeting Chief Justice John Roberts for impeachment if he swears in President Barack Obama for a second term later this month.
Craige McMillan, a columnist for the conservative publication WND.com , wrote a piece last week asking Roberts to not swear Obama in, because, according to McMillan, Obama does not meet the Constitution's definition of a natural born citizen. In the piece, McMillan claims that Obama is not a citizen because his father was a citizen of Kenya and the United Kingdom, and that Obama cannot be "a natural born citizen" because his father was not an American citizen. Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was born and raised in Kansas by parents who were born in Kansas.
McMillan wrote:
Your failure to investigate these citizenship issues surrounding Mr. Obama at the time questions were raised during his first term places you in a terrible position. You are now confronted with a most difficult choice.
Your own oath of office, sworn before God and the American people, requires you to uphold the Constitution.(If not you, then who?) If you now administer the oath of office for the presidency to a man who by his own admission fails to meet the natural born citizen requirement imposed by that Constitution, you have violated your own oath of office and are rightly subject to impeachment by any House of Representatives, at any time, now or in the future.
McMillan then suggested that the outcome for the country would be "Illegal wars. Illegal debts. Illegal laws." The New Civil Rights Movement reported that the National Memo responded to McMillan's piece by noting that Obama has met all the qualifications for being a natural born citizen, including being born in Hawaii and his mother being born in Kansas.""
----------
You people are so stupid!! Complain about how badly Bush was treated, while performing 4 year charsacter assasination of Obama.
And still you can't understand why Americans reject your program of hatred and divisiveness??
Keep it up. Your ilk insures a democratic majority for decades to come.
While your side convinces America how much you hate it.
I rather like watching you morons self-destruct.
You post moronic articles from your loon websites (which you never source), and then have the gall to call everyone else idiots?

I think EE sums you up pretty well.

ObamaCare taxes beginning January 2013:

The Medical Device Tax hits entrepreneurial firms making equipment such as heart valves and hip replacement parts. They face a 2.3% profit on gross sales – a tax they must pay even if they have no profit at all. Many firms say this tax – slated to collect $29 billion over 10 years – will soak up virtually all of their research budgets.

The medical device industry employs more than 400,000 people in 12,000 factories across the country, often small, entrepreneurial firms with a small product line. Many say that to survive, they will have no choice but to relocate abroad – taking much-needed, high-tech jobs with them. These lost jobs will be more casualties of ObamaCare. And the tax means that medical devices will be more expensive, driving up health cost even further.

Obamacare - what to expect in 2014:

The most widespread change occurs in January 2014, when all taxpayers are required to have health insurance or pay an additional tax. In 2014, the tax will be 1% of your adjusted gross income that is above the taxable minimum income.(In 2011, the taxable minimum income was $9,500 for individuals under 65, and $19,000 for couples. For more, see IRS 501). The tax rate will rise to 2% in 2015, and 2.5% in 2016.

However, your tax can't be less than a base fee for every adult. The base fee is $95 in 2014,$395 in 2015, and $695 in 2016. After that, the base few will rise with the CPI. The base fee for each child is half the adult fee. However, no family will pay a base fee that is more than three times the adult rate. For example, no matter how many children you have, the base won't be more than $285 (3 X $95) in 2014.

Beginning January 2014:

For businesses with 50 or more employees - In 2014, employers who refuse to provide health insurance must pay an excise tax of $2,000 per employee, except for the first 30 employees. To help them find the cheapest plans, businesses with fewer than 100 employees can use the state-run exchanges in 2014.(Sources: How Obamacare Affects Small Businesses); Washington Post Factchecker, Obamacare Tax Hikes)

Why does this sound more punitive than effective?

At least someone wrote a book to simplify this 2700 monstrosity: Obamacare Survival Guide by Nicholas J. Tate.

http://www.amazon.com/ObamaCare-Survival-Guid...

Hard to believe we need a "survival guide" to understand and grasp Obama's, Pelosi's and Reid's "vision" of our "new and improved" health care system.

Nobody gives a sh*t about your carbon footprint.

Normal people earn a living, pay their bills, don't depend on the government, and don't try to tell others how to lead their lives.

Not so for dumbass Dave.

Nobody gives a sh*t what you think.
