You have just proven yourself to be the uneducated, racist piece of trash who helped elect and then re-elect the incompetent Obama. You have no idea of my age or race, but since I'm not a lowlife like you, you just assume I am above you, which I am. Your "STFU MurdaFudder" gives you away, just as my money is given away...to lowlife bottomfeeder leeches such as you. See...I was correct all along. Now go chomp on a big piece of ripe watermelon and enjoy your next 4 years of failure.

Like shooting fish in a barrel.
<quoted text>
The issue was whether the language of 9066 specifically targeted Japanese-Americans for internment.
It doesn't.
But General DeWitt's order of May 3, 1942 does. Would you like to see it again for the third time?
I don't know when Roosevelt became aware of the extent to which the military was implementing 9066.
At some point he knew, obviously. As for when, I leave that for you to research. Upon being informed, he may have approved temporarily based on the Robert's Report, which was not truthful, but convincing at the time. Or perhaps he didn't approve. I simply don't know that detail.
I do know Roosevelt rescinded 9066 in 1944.
You have been proven wrong with regard to 9066 specifically calling for Japanese-American internment. The language simply doesn't exist. The internment process began with DeWitt's May 3, 1942 order and not before..
Damn that was a good story! I wish I could hear the Three Stooges theme song that goes along with it:}

You are backpedaling like anyone would expect you to regarding the REAL story, though.

* The original disagreement was whether FDR ordered the internment and NOT whether Executive Order 9066 contained the label Japanese Americans.

* Roosevelt did NOT rescind 9066 in 1944. "Executive Order 9066 was rescinded by Gerald Ford on February 19, 1976. In 1980, Jimmy Carter signed legislation to create the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians (CWRIC). The CWRIC was appointed to conduct an official governmental study of Executive Order 9066, related wartime orders, and their impact on Japanese Americans in the West and Alaska Natives in the Pribilof Islands.

In December 1982, the CWRIC issued its findings in Personal Justice Denied, concluding that the incarceration of Japanese Americans had not been justified by military necessity. The report determined that the decision to incarcerate was based on "race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership." The Commission recommended legislative remedies consisting of an official Government apology and redress payments of $20,000 to each of the survivors; a public education fund was set up to help ensure that this would not happen again (Public Law 100-383).

On August 10, 1988, the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, based on the CWRIC recommendations, was signed into law by Ronald Reagan. On November 21, 1989, George H. W. Bush signed an appropriation bill authorizing payments to be paid out between 1990 and 1998. In 1990, surviving internees began to receive individuals redress payments and a letter of apology. This bill only applied to the Japanese Americans."

From Wiki - Executive Order 9066: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_Order_...

"This mass removal of persons of Japanese ancestry was ordered by the president, supported by the Justice Department, implemented by the military, and sanctioned by the Supreme Court."

Dave is a moron.
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
It's hard convincing your side of anything.

Like "Bush and Cheney didn't lie about WMDs", "Valerie Plame wasn't a covert CIA operative" and "Barney Frank forced banks to lend to unqualified buyers".

Did you read the Washington Post article where a Wells Fargo executive admits the bank went out of its way to bring in bad credit risks?

Several of these large banks are now under investigation for making predatory loans.

As I understand CRA regs, banks had to make loans to those in low income areas with a certain percentage of FNMA funds, but that in no way meant those borrowers could skate on loan requirements.

The biggest obstacle for your argument is that you'd have us believe at a time when Republicans controlled the federal government, they chose to sit on their hands rather than come flying to the rescue of these "opppressed" banks forced by federal law to provide ruinous loans.

Come on, that simply doesn't fly.

From your second link:

"U. S. Executive Order 9066 was a presidential order signed by Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942 authorizing the Army to designate military areas from which any persons may be excluded. The words Japanese, or Japanese Americans never appeared but the order was directed mainly against them."

Your own source here admits the language does not mention Japanese-Americans. It says "exclude", but nothing about internment. As for the final sentence, that is strictly the interpretation of the writer.

Busted by your own evidence. BAH HAH HAH HAH

Not to mention your irrelevant rambling discourse on the remedies proscribed in the late 1980s. Has nothing to do with what language was used in FDR's 9066.

Proving once again what mindless idiots you are.

So...a predatory loan is something that a bank sells to an unworthy debtor so that they can have the debtor default and cause said bank to lose money. Sounds like Stupid having fun. Like you!
