It's right here dave, read it:
"Because Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made a market for subprime mortgages the lenders did not have to worry about of the soundness of the mortgage contract they wrote. Thus the lenders could write the mortgages as adjustable interest rate mortgages knowing full well that an upturn in the interest rates could easily throw the borrower into insolvency. For example, when the interest rate is 6 percent the mortgage payment for a 30-year $200,000 mortgage is $1199 per month. If the interest rate goes up to 7 percent the mortgage payment would increase by $131 per month, an 11 percent increase. For many of the subprime borrowers living on the edge of insolvency this would be enough to push them over the edge. The guilt for the subprime mortgage financial crisis lies both with the lenders who knowingly put borrowers into booby trapped mortgages and the management of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for making a market for such booby trapped mortgages thus giving the lenders the incentive for writing them. "
when the treasury and Fannie and Freddie were being looted, did you expect others to sit on the sidelines?

empty hearts can do that."

Stupid Creationist Quote of the Week: Ben Carson on Evolution
This quote is rather shocking. It comes from Ben Carson and, as you can see from the wiki page, Carson is a top notch neurosurgeon. You would think that that would make him do a little research before talking about evolution in general and human evolution in particular. However:
Even if you accept evolutionary theory–developing a more sophisticated organism in this theoretically “logical” fashion, then there should be a continuum of organisms. And why did evolution divert in so many directions–birds, fish, elephants, apes, humans–if there is some force evolving to the maximum? Why isn’t everything a human–a superior human? Darwin specifically stated that his theory hung on the discovery of intermediate forms, and was sure that we would find them. More than a hundred years later we still haven’t found them. Even the earliest fossils don’t show such intermediates.
Take the simple case of ape to human. It should be easy to find abundant fossil remains since, according to evolutionary theory, this is the most recent transition. If we can find so many fossils of dinosaurs, which are further back in the evolutionary scheme, we should have plenty of evidence of intermediates between apes and humans. But we don’t have them. We have very few supposed intermediates–like “Lucy,” based on fanciful reconstruction with a lot of filling in. Today we have people with significant congenital abnormalities whose skeletal remains would seem like a missing link. So “Lucy” does not make the case, and there should be multiple “Lucys” if the transition from ape to human were true.
The above quote appeared in the Adventist Review (I’m not sure of the date of publication) and is such a conflicting mass of baffle-gab and gobbledegook (which seems to be par for the course for surgeons) that I will take it sentence by sentence.....
"But we don’t have them. We have very few supposed intermediates–like “Lucy,” based on fanciful reconstruction with a lot of filling in."
Lucy, for those who do not know much about paleoanthropology, is a fossil belonging to the species Australopithecus afarensis. To date there are over 400 specimens from 6-8 sites. These specimens encompass almost the entire range of Au. afarensis anatomy so very little “filling in” is needed. Reconstruction, at least in skeletal terms, involves putting the fragmented pieces of a bone or skeleton back together. This requires a good knowledge of skeletal anatomy – something paleoanthropologists spend a lot of time studying. The larger point, that there are very few transitional fossils in human evolution is also incorrect. We have a wide variety of specimens ranging from early in the hominid record up to anatomically modern humans. Here is a small list:....

So, please tell us why you make the association between racial discrimination and the history of bad lonas in the areas you claim were being racially discriminated against.
In short, why did the areas banks didn't want to invest in have a history of bad loans? What was the relationship to race?

Chu said today that the U.S. is on course to meet Obama’s goal of doubling manufacturing capacity for renewable energy by 2012. Obama has failed to win passage in Congress of legislation to create a cap-and-trade system limiting carbon emissions or to establish national standards for the use of renewable energy.

Thomas Pyle, president of the Institute for Energy Research, a free-market analysis group in Washington, said the rooftop panels will underscore hostility by Obama toward fossil fuels such as coal.

‘Ineffective, Expensive’

Solar energy is “ineffective, expensive and unreliable and will continue to be in our lifetimes and probably our children’s lifetimes and beyond,” Pyle said in an interview.

"Solar generated power is unreliable, the batteries pose a vary real bio hazard, batteries can explode at any given time, Solar systems are expensive to maintain.

The many costs associated with solar power out weight any realized benefit."

and that's not the only thing they don't want to acknowledge.

We all know you will be thrilled if the Supreme Court declares handguns illegal. You want only the scum bags to be able to possess them.

But you, being a racist f*ck, didn't care & you f*cked people out of their vote. It must because you believe in the Constitution...as long as it suits your racist agenda yet when it comes to black people buying homes & voting, you crumble it up & piss on it.

Solar Energy is free in the same sense that oil is free where all you have to do is bring it to the surface.

$20,000 investment and the ROI takes 20 years, too. In the interim, maintenance costs will kill you with defective panels, leaks, hail damage, Panel EOL, storage battery replacements, DC-to-AC converter replacement, etc.

But, hey!, like the children's choir sings: "It's All Free!"

Barrack H. Obama. He's already won a Nobel Peace prize and is hailed as the Boy Messiah who kills children with Drone strikes and then calls for Gun Control to save the children.

He's the perfect replacement as the the Vatican's Spiritual Hypocrite.
