<quoted text>lol! Again with your idiotic claims of CRA.
The truth will never get through... you pile on too much political insulation to cocoon yourself.
Banks were never forced to make those loans. In fact, there were banks that never qualified as having to be required to follow CRA guidelines in the first place.
You're just filled with too much hate. It's a shame you ruined so many kids.
I got your truth right here...

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 including various "neighborhood organizations" such as "ACORN".

Banks have been placed in a Catch 22 situation by the CRA: If they comply, they know they will have to suffer from more loan defaults. If they don't comply, they face financial penalties and, worse yet, their business plans for mergers, branch expansions, etc., can be blocked by CRA protesters which can cost a large corporation like Bank of America billions of dollars. Like most businesses, they have largely buckled under and have surrendered to their bureaucratic masters.

this is all i need to know.
Eight in ten voters agree that the special session should be focused on issues like ”education, jobs, and economy instead of bringing up social issues like abortion”; 71 percent think that the Governor and the legislature should spend less time passing laws restricting abortion. Again, both Independent and Republican voters share this view.

They really should spend LESS time trying to dictate social agenda bullchit and for a REAL change-actually use time productively in getting back to what they're supposed to be doing-which does NOT included telling people how to live their lives!

This has been the WORST admin I've ever seen for that kind of commie dictatorship ego-maniacal type crap.

Get back to business FOR America-NOT dictating against it!!

Still going in the opposite direction. But don't be disheartened. He still has his faithful lapdogs who might just decide to remain loyal and obey his every command. Unlike Bush when they were nipping at his heels every step of the way.
President Bush introduced Prescription Drug coverage under Medicare and a Guest Worker Program for Mexican workers. Of course President Bush did not attend his parties convention in 2012

Bush was not a racist.

Apparently the SCOTUS is still allowing the states to decided who may get married and leaves it with the state.

The Feds must acknowledge these marriages that are lawful

Good morning clueless one:
" Any notion that Tuesday's election represented a liberal juggernaut must overcome a detail from the voting booths of California: The same voters who turned out strongest for Barack Obama also drove a stake through the heart of same-sex marriage.
Seven in 10 African Americans who went to the polls voted yes on Proposition 8"

We could go over each of your propaganda assertions you are repeating, Kool-Aid drinker, but since you are dishonest, I won't.
Tenzing along with every liberal on here will never accept that black and Hispanic democrats predominantly voted yes on Proposition 8 as in California.

They will also never accept many democrats also oppose abortion.

And they will never accept most wars in the past century were started and accelerated under Democratic leadership.

It's just more convenient to blame republicans for their disillusionment.

Where is Chinese medicine covered in O'bamacare. Where are vitamins covered in O'bamacare--what about alternative treatments I would like to choose if I get sick? where are they covered? I am going to have to pay out of pocket for every thing I choose just like I do now. I do not use western medicine--and that is what O'bama covers. Medication for the masses. Not about health, not about care. This is not right wing. This is about people who care about their own health, not some government telling them.

Dick Durbin (D Walgreens) announces that the Great Lakes are evaporating at an alarming rate. However they are exactly the same as last year. And now as of today the Chicago area has flooded again. The last flood was less than two months ago. I don't know how Dick is keeping all that rain out of Lake Michigan.
