Aunt Bettie Lou, "If liberals really cared about the impoverished and minorities, they would have already set an example in their own back yards." 'The mood was triumphant on the morning of July 21, 2010, when Barack Obama, not quite two years into his presidency, strode to a podium inside the Ronald Reagan Building, a few blocks from the White House. As he prepared to sign the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act—the sweeping legislative package designed to prevent another spectacular financial collapse—into law, the president first acknowledged the miracle of having a bill to sign at all.“Passing this…was no easy task,” he told the crowd of hundreds.“We had to overcome the furious lobbying of an array of powerful interest groups and a partisan minority determined to block change.”'... Indeed, some 3,000 lobbyists had swarmed the Capitol in hopes of killing off pieces of the proposed bill—nearly six lobbyists for every member of Congress. For Michael Barr, then an assistant secretary at the Treasury Department, the trench warfare spurred by Dodd-Frank left him shellshocked.“You pick a page at random,” says Barr, now a law professor at the University of Michigan,“and I’ll tell you about all the issues on that page where the fighting was intense.” Remarkably, despite the onslaught, Dodd-Frank “got stronger rather than weaker the closer we got to passage, which is incredibly unusual,” says Lisa Donner, executive director of Americans for Financial Reform, one of a handful of advocacy groups that fought tenaciously for the bill.'

That sense of victory barely lasted barely the morning. The same financial behemoths that had fought so ferociously to block Dodd-Frank were not going to let the mere fact of the bill’s passage ruin their plans.“Halftime,” shrugged Scott Talbott, chief lobbyist for the Financial Services Roundtable, a lobbying group representing 100 of the country’s largest financial institutions. It was 5:30 am on a Friday when a joint House-Senate conference committee approved the bill’s final language. By Sunday, an industry lawyer named Annette Nazareth—a former top official at the Securities and Exchange Commission whose firm counts JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs among its clients—had already sent off a heavily annotated copy of the 848-page bill to colleagues at her old agency. According to a congressional staffer whose boss was a key architect of Dodd-Frank, Nazareth is one of two “generals” running the campaign to undo the bill. The other is Eugene Scalia,(the son who got the plum partnership in the Bush family law firm in Florida after SCOTUS decision on Bush v. Gore gave the 2000 Presidential election to Bush W.) a fearsome litigator and son of the Supreme Court justice."'--Check this out: http://www.thenation.com/article/174113/how-w...

Are you self-radicalized?

Do we need more revenues?

Or do we need more climate change?

How about if you pay your fair share?

I think your problem is what you post evidently is not what you think you post.

I said these new stores will take their customers from existing store & some likely would close. You said no because where you live has low unemployment and is growing,.

Let me know if this isn't what you said.
