Talk about subsidies!
Do I hear clucking in here?
This is a scary question, though.

How about we talk about Obama's so-called "jobs czar" Jeffrey Immelt illegally supporting Iran's air force... you know, all those GE turbofan jet engines...
What happened to that investigation, anyway? It seemed to have just disappeared from view coincident with Obama taking office.

MURDER COVER-UP: Police, Firefighters Ordered Not To Speak about Michael Hastings Crash

As previously reported, questions surrounding Hastings’ untimely death have emerged primarily because the journalist was working on “the biggest story yet” about the CIA before he was killed...

Are you really this slow on the uptake? It's been pointed out to you numerous times the housing market collapse changed the landscape. Barney Frank and Maxine Waters led the Democratic pack in insisting Fannie and Freddie were doing just fine and any attempt to rein it in and hold Raines accountable in 2004 was, according to Waters, a "public lynching".
It was Bush who tried to warn them.
Maybe you ARE this slow on the uptake. How sad for you.
Yes Carol and it's been pointed out to you on numerous occasions that Fannie and Freddie didn't have anything to do with the collapse of the housing market. Private markets caused the shady mortgage boom: The first thing to point out is that the both the subprime mortgage boom and the subsequent crash are very much concentrated in the private market, especially the private label securitization channel (PLS) market. The Government-Sponsored Entities (GSEs, or Fannie and Freddie) were not behind them. The fly-by-night lending boom, slicing and dicing mortgage bonds, derivatives and CDOs, and all the other shadiness of the mortgage market in the 2000s were Wall Street creations, and they drove all those risky mortgages.
In 2004 Republicans held the House, Senate and the White House so your assertion that Democrats are to blame is inane. Also in 2004 the housing market appeared to be going fine, it wasn't until two years later that the market started to collapse because of the toxic loans infecting the system. Fannie and Freddie don't originate loans nitwit, they buy them so that banks have the cash to make more loans. Fannie and Freddie did buy some of the toxic loans in the form of mortgage backed securities but let's not forget that the ratings agencies were rating them AAA and they were in high demand throughout the financial industry.
But go ahead let's keep recycling those lies.

Congress is blocking legislation. Is that what has to be done?
Has the Supreme Court declared the employer mandate - absolutely "lawless" and unconstitutional or is this a republican Yarn?
Failing to enforce the employer mandate is "absolutely lawless' because the ObamaKKKare bill establishes a firm date, with no provisions for delay.

It's difficult to dodge when you painted yourself into a corner, isn't it?

Here it comes again.

Please elaborate.
There are 30 million illegal aliens here. If you can't find a job, take one of those jobs.
... oh,yeah. You're one of those dupes that pretends to believe the 11 million number when fifteen years ago the official government estimate was 12 million illegal aliens here, which everyone thought was too low of an estimate even then.
Let's repeat:
There are 30 million illegal aliens here. If you can't find a job, take one of those jobs.

Let us know when you feel ready to answer this post.

How can anyone even pretend to believe the government's 11 million lie when the very same government said 12 million fifteen years ago?

I will thank you, though, first. It was destiny that you would discriminate against us and try to force your way inside the bodies of Texas women. Thank you! For finally working against women so publicly, and not in the shadows like you’re used to. Thank you for every single bad press conference with your bad information. Thank you for every hateful statement degrading women and girls to sex objects, and brood mares, and bald eagles, and leather wallets, like your eloquent pro-life supporters have done today.
Thank you for being you, Texas legislature. You have radicalized hundreds of thousands of us. And no matter what you do for the next 22 days, women and their allies are coming for you. Let’s start down the line. Senator Campbell, you’re an ophthalmologist. So I won’t be making you the expert on reproductive health. We can give you all the children with chlamydia and herpes in their eyes, since we don’t have Sex Ed in this state.

Yup. Capitalism lifted the world out of the stone age it was in in the past century when there were less than a dozen modern economies in the world, and if you had change in your pocket you were among the 10 percent wealthiest people in the world.
That changed after the United States became the most significant influence in the world, defeated the communist global domination agenda, and you can go anywhere in the world and see for yourself the wonderful effects of capitalism.
Or, you can go to North Korea or Vietnam or Cuba and see the effects of communism, the last communist countries on the planet.

They exercised their First Amendment rights to show everyone they thought Hugo Chavez was the most significant person in the world on that day, and mothers had no significance on Mothers' Day.

ohhhhh, pleeeeeezzzzz....

We have the Director of OFHEO warning everyone about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac keeping fraudulent books to hide the CRA disaster as early as 2003 when the Democrats supported the war in Iraq in exchange for no effective oversight of institutions like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had everything to do with the economic collapse, dupe.

Of course, big business cried unnecessarily about President Obama's Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act too.
Legislation that rewards slackers and those prone to litigation just assures that they won't be hired to begin with.

Equal pay for equal work is appropriate, but only if the work produced is truly equal.
