Anyway, night Galt.
The United Nations is a joke and the US should never commit forces under UN command.

Let the Syrians solve their own problems in the way that Muslims always have, by slaughtering each other.

Adults can be unaffected by certain ingredients while children CAN be affected because they are in a growth pattern.

IOWs, a grown kidney may be unaffected by aspartame while a growing one will be.

That's your claim son. As I said, the problems began with the elimination of Glass-Steagal so banks could start working on other financial instruments they weren't allowed to.

You making your personal claims doesn't change anything. There was no requirement to change loan regs. That's something cons made up.

The election system in the US now allows corporations and foreign governments to make donations, or to support candidate anonymously.

Conservatives cheered this as a benefit for Americans.

Somehow, I don't see it. In fact, it's more like selling the farm.

Kind of like allowing government employee unions to finance the campaigns of the officials who then negotiate contracts with them?

So, you're OK with it if stricter loan standards result in minorities being denied financing in disproportionate numbers?

MAKE IT VIRAL: Black Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory explains why he became a Republican
This has to be one of the most powerful Ďadsí Iíve ever seen on what it means to be a Republican. But even more than that, Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory explains why, as a black man, leaving the Democratic Party and becoming a Republican was absolutely the right choice and not nearly as tough as some have suggested.
I am deeming this a MUST WATCH because itís fantastic:

HEY STUPID! Elbert Guillory was originally a Republican who turned Democrat to gain a political advantage in his district. He's always held these so called "conservative" views. There was no great epiphany on his part.

So who else? O'bama/Moslem after 9/11 I can understand why the country should have looked at him. He was tied to every moslem extremist in Chicago.
tied to? by whom? not that it matters. not enough 'whom' that it matters.

it's still funny, even after 5 years, to watch a group of grown people act like everyone is paying attention to what they're saying.

Yes, Republicans keep passing laws that give therm a tax advantage for doing so.

Corporations currently are not taxed on foreign made profits until they bring those profits back.

Thanks to your Republicans, Galt.

Signing the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, President Clinton put the Community Reinvestment Act on steroids.
Did you even try to confirm it?
Liar.

All the Gramm-Leach-Blily Act did was extend the CRA to the newer mortgage institution that the bill created when it tore down the wall between banks & investment houses.

That tearing down was a major factor in the near financial meltdown, not the expansion of the CRA to these newer mortgage institutions.

After decades of running up the debt under Presidents like Reagan, we finally had a balanced budget at the end of the Clinton administration. Galt should have been happy.

This is what each & every one of you right whiners claim to want.

Then came Bush. You f*cking idiots voted for him....twice. You still support the Republican Party that enabled Bush to nearly kill this country creating the worst recession on 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial; meltdown & two quagmire wars.

Yeah, boy, the banks intentionally created bad loans so that they could buy them up, become insolvent, and need a government bailout.
Makes lots of sense, to idiots like you, boy.
Galt too uninformed top know that those that wrote those bad loans sold them so why did thy care?

Those that bought them wrapped them in mortgage based securities where there was a demand. So why should they care if they were bad?

Many of the "bad" loans weren't bad until housing prices started to decline in mid 2006.

Galt is an idiot.
