Wow! Such powerful replies!

Have you ever considered replying to what is being written here instead of wandering off into childish rants and Bush-Bashing?
You obviously have an intense Liberal agenda you wish to use as restroom graffiti here but at least try fitting it in with reasonable tact, relevance or panache. Your being as clumsy as a 5 year old at a first dance lesson is hilarious.

How many kids shot and killed a sibling or family member this month? How many parents got arrested for it? Then, there's this one:

A 3-year-old Florida boy fatally shot himself Tuesday using a gun he found in the bedroom that he shared with his uncle.

Jadarrius Speights was alone when he accidentally discharged an "unsecured 9mm handgun" left in a backpack that belonged to his uncle, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Police arrested the boy's uncle, Jeffrey D. Walker, 29, Tuesday night and charged him with culpable negligence. Walker purchased the weapon at a Tampa Bay area gun shop and does possess a concealed weapons permit, according to authorities.

The boy's parents, Jasmine Bell, 21, and Trentin Speights, 22, were in their bedroom when the shooting happened.

Speights passed away after emergency responders rushed him to Florida Hospital Tampa.

Now we have testimony that the White House lied intentionally about Benghazi being a result of a spontaneous video.

The Democrats are embarrassing sleazebags.

Obama the Jive-Ass Punk lied to the American people.

Hillary "Stump Legs" Clinton lied to the American people.

Susan Rice Lied to the networks.

The Press Secretary (Oapy) lied to the White House Press Corps.

We need more hearings to see who in the military got the stand down order from "whom" in the Obama Regime.

The top guy on the ground testified his jaw dropped when he heard the White House blaming the video. Everyone knew right off the bat it was a planned attack by terrorists.

You DemocRATS are sleaze buckets full of scum.

SO, if you guess low to get a big 'tax credit' well the government pays the insurance company your tax credit. But if it turns out you received to much of a tax credit you are responsible to pay it back. Up to $10,000.

I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.

The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html

The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.

The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place.

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 [democrat] Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

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.

So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
