Dumbass, you think all subprime loans are CRA loans.
CRA loans were typical standard type, long term mortgages. Not the ones you described.
A study was done & it showed that the percentage of all failed loans that were CRA was the same as the percentage of all loans that were CRA. If the CRA loans were the problem, then certainly a higher percent would fail.
The Republicans wanted to tear down Glass Stengal & create all these new mortgage capable institutions.. All Clinton did was say that if they are in the mortgage business then they are subject to CRA rules.
Glass Stengal was signed by Clinton.

"He also signed the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which exempted credit-default swaps from regulation. In 1995 Clinton loosened housing rules by rewriting the Community Reinvestment Act, which put added pressure on banks to lend in low-income neighborhoods. It is the subject of heated political and scholarly debate whether any of these moves are to blame for our troubles, but they certainly played a role in creating a permissive lending environment.

Rush yesterday....

The Left is in Tizzy Over the Supreme Court Ruling on the Voting Rights Act

The justices basically called out Congress today as a bunch of cowards. You know, you guys, you didn't have the courage to right things, so we're gonna do it for you, and we're just gonna invalidate this portion of the Voting Rights Act because it's no longer constitutional. It's not legal to continue discriminating against people who didn't engage in it in the first place. It would be great if this whole line of thinking were applied throughout our culture and society when it comes to affirmative action, racial discrimination and all that.

That is what the Civil Rights states and already existing law that was over a century old.
...so you can discriminate for other reasons LOL.

It looks like the liberals on the Supreme Court subverted Democracy again. First the rule California voters do not have the right to deny same sex marriage, but now they say it's up to the states.
Typical lawless Democrats in action. This SC is a circus act. Totally dysfunctional and not functioning as intended. They do not rule on law, they are nothing more than a political group now.
Scalia ripped into Kennedy for calling opponents of gay marriage "enemies of the human race".

http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2...

Pretty blistering assessment.

Think I misinterpreted Scalia's quote earlier. He was saying the disease stems from the exalted role of the Supreme Court - not the role of gay marriage. So I was right in my opinion - liberal judges.

Sorry Goof, but there wasn't any NSA 'cameras ' to find(they were not even permitted to 'read or listen to any private phone conversations or emails' just allow their super computers collate the numbers and e-mail addresses and even that had to be periodically checked and okayed by a Federal Judge--so there wasn't much the NSA can do on its own.

<quoted text>I'm curious why Bettie Lou dropped her harangue on the I.R.S. after Elijah Cummings blew the lid off the I.R.S. "scandal " by releasing the full transcripts that exonerated President Barack Obama from any involvement? "Republicans could never quite get their trail of bread crumbs to reach anywhere near the White House. The buzzards were circling earlier this month when Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) released the best quotes he could cherry-pick from closed testimony, and still came up short. It was Rep. Elijah Cummings who finished it off, though, when he fulfilled Issa’s promise to release the full transcripts, which revealed that the supervisor responsible for scrutinizing Tea Party groups was a conservative Republican who ruled out White House involvement in the policy." ... "McConnell effectively acknowledged to disappointed conservatives that recently revealed IRS malfeasance probably wasn’t the consequence of any direct action taken by the White House."

We shouldn't expect any well-deserved apologies coming from the republicans for the false accusations about President Barack Obama any time soon.
Cumming's released a Progressive squirrel.

HEY STUPID! How do you know that abortions have sky rocked since Reo v Wade? They weren't reported prior to that ruling since they were illegal or were simply called something else in medical records like a dilation and curettage. How many women died or had their health and reproductive systems destroyed by back alley abortionists? If you and your ignorant ilk have their way there'll be more Kermit Gosnells and many more women will die.
Well, because "stupid", Planned Parenthood became an abortion institution AFTER Roe v Wade and abortions in hospitals and clinics were illegal except New York BEFORE Roe v Wade.

But I know logic isn't liberals' strongpoint.
