Yeah, every now and then some drags this article out like it's some kind of gem but in reality it's a piece of dreck. 50% of subprime loans were made by institutions that weren't subject to federal regulation or oversight and another 30% were made by those not subject to routine examination or supervision.

At President Clinton’s direction, no fewer than 10 federal agencies issued a chilling ultimatum to banks and mortgage lenders to ease credit for lower-income minorities or face investigations for lending discrimination and suffer the related adverse publicity. They also were threatened with denial of access to the all-important secondary mortgage market and stiff fines, along with other penalties.
The threat was codified in a 20-page “Policy Statement on Discrimination in Lending” and entered into the Federal Register on April 15, 1994, by the Interagency Task Force on Fair Lending. Clinton set up the little-known body to coordinate an unprecedented crackdown on alleged bank redlining.
The edict — completely overlooked by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the mainstream media — was signed by then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, Attorney General Janet Reno, Comptroller of the Currency Eugene Ludwig and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, along with the heads of six other financial regulatory agencies.

The More Illegals That Go On Food Stamps The More Money JP Morgan Makes

Recently uncovered documents prove that the Obama has been working with the Mexican government to increase the number of illegal aliens on food stamps, and when more illegal aliens go on food stamps JP Morgan makes more money. As you will read, JP Morgan has made at least 560 million dollars processing Electronic Benefits Transfer cards.

If the current system wasn't a failure, the extension of the Bush tax cuts, Obama raising taxes on folks making over $400,000 & families over $450,000, along with the sequester should've have live to the economy but, it didn't. Capitalism is a system designed to keep majority circulating amongst the top, & the middle class (poor) are the batteries that gives the machine the juice to operate, so in essence, the top use money & access to money to drain the life & blood out of the middle class (poor). Exactly how does it benefit America for billionaires like Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey to make more money in a year then the average American will make in 2 lifetimes? Exactly, it doesn't & it benefits America even less when their type pays little to no taxes in their income. The govt at this point is forced to continue infusing capitol into the economy to money made by the rich & stashed in banks like can goods in a cupboard. The idea of you been make it if you try is smoke & mirrors, & nothing more than inspiration for the blind eye & dead mind to give their flesh blood & live to a evil corrupt system whom really doesn't give a shit about you!
You really have no idea what you are talking about and you have no idea how our system works. I don't claim it's perfect, but it's the best available.

I don't care one bit what unemployed layabouts, loafers and welfare receivers think or want, they and their opinions are worthless, they add nothing to our system.
Nothing but yourself is stopping you from doing well in America.

Dumbass, do you remember a little thing called 9/11 ? Why is it dishonest lying libs always act like 9/11 never happened?
Oblamer begged for the job, remember? Do you remember anything?
Bush actually got the economy up and running again after 9/11 within a year and a half.

The left tends to convienently lose track of the timeline and those involved leading up to the housing market collapse too.

Obama inherited a Democrat as much, if not more, as a Republican mess. Democrats had complete control of Congress two years prior to the collapse and for two years afterwards.

There Leadass Lou, I fixed it for you.
Bush added over 5 trillion to the national debt. Add up those budget deficits. Why don't they add up to the national debt increase???? Is it because Bush ran his wars off budget? Obama does not.
Doorknob, let's see the totals of Bush's deficits with the wars from a reputable source, otherwise stfu.

Even with the wars, voted for by demorats, they wouldn't be a trillion dollars plus.

You're lying, again.

And the failure and liar Oblamer is president, not Bush.

1) Denying loans based on race is illegal. They lost in court.
2) The CRA sais banks, in their communities, had to make more of an effort to help people get mortgages. They had to lower the down payment or the interest rate but mortgage buyers STILL HAD TO SHOW THEY COULD MAKE THOSE PAYMENTS.
So, you believe that banks should be racist. Interesting.
Liar, yur willful ignorance is very annoying, stop kissing Oblamers ass.

Funny how you right whiers no longer agree with any of those issues.
Yet here you are, praising Bush.
I can only assume its because you are just ignorant of the facts.

President Obama became the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood on Friday. Not surprisingly, he didn’t have anything to say about Kermit Gosnell, or the wave of medical emergencies at abortion clinics, or the sex-selection abortions Live Action discovered at Planned Parenthood. Obama didn’t even use the word “abortion” in his speech. Abortion is so wonderful that even the most strident abortion radical ever elected to the White House can’t bring himself to say the word.
If the abortion industry didn’t enjoy the nearly religious devotion of the Left, it would be Occupy Wall Street’s favorite example of a big business that pays big bucks for political influence, so it can operate with ridiculously lax oversight, weak safety standards, and lavish subsidies. Kermit Gosnell preyed relentlessly upon poor black women, while treating his assistants like sweat shop labor. The excuses offered by Planned Parenthood when its staff is caught flaunting the law on undercover video are reminiscent of tobacco company executives trying to claim that smoking isn’t bad for you. The Democrat Party has expressed a willingness to shut down the entire government to protect Planned Parenthood subsidies. When a prominent charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, tried to decouple from Planned Parenthood, the response was straight out of “The Sopranos.” You are required to fund this organization, and you are not allowed to stop. They’ve got a lot of money, political clout, and media influence available to enforce that directive....
A PP employee told a woman that aborting her fully formed 6 month old fetus would be no problem. Heard it on Rush.

How do you abort a six month old baby?

Answer:
You dont! You dont let it get that far if you dont want the baby!

As far as I am aware there is nowhere in the world you can abort a normal baby at six months and at this stage a baby born has an at least 50% chance of survival.

Ann Richards wouldn't sign a death warrant so Bush had 8 years worth of them stacked up on his desk on day one. He didn't really have a choice being a Republican and all__but he made a few unnecessary comments along the way.
Let Carol and the other yayhoo's have their memories to diddle__Bush is essentially trapped in Texas, unwelcome even in (R) circles and doesn't dare travel to Europe. He flew to the Caymans for a speech and he'll trek to D.C. and Maine when Sr passes. That's a pretty lonely existence for an ex POTUS imo.

No one's bashing capitalism moron. Capitalism is what grew this country by people starting businesses and hiring people selling goods and services and contributing to the local economies. What's at issue is corporatism that ships job to countries that pay low wages and have no concerns for worker health and safety and stash their profits in offshore banks to avoid paying taxes for the services they receive in this country.
When Sam Walton started his business he was a capitalist. He kept his prices low by maintaining low profit margins and he sold American goods whenever possible. His heirs however went to the corporatist route making their profits by selling cheap foreign goods produced by virtual slave labor paying their employees crap and driving small businesses out.

Absolutely correct and these head in the sand ringers keep thinking that Capitalism unchecked is the cure for all ills.
Once Corporate America went looking for cheap, so did jobs and the environment get taxed as a result. There is a HIGH price to pay for cheap! So next time one of you put on the Nike or brand name sweat shirt think about 350 Bangladesh workers crushed to death making it. Or the next time you visit Starbucks enjoying a coffee that might brought down a rain forest making it. Thats the real cost of capitalism and globalisation.
