Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Thanks for your opinion son.

i have no clue as to what you're talking about,....
I believe that.

You posted some report published in 2008 about how the CRA was not the cause of the economic collapse, and I merely pointed out the fact that it would have been impossible for anyone to investigate it sufficiently because the CRA mortgages were in the possession of "Special Purpose Vehicles" established in foreign countries for the specific purpose of preventing an investigation.

Here's the post again for your edification:

To back your bullshit up, you'd first have to know what a "Special Purpose Vehicle" is, what countries they were established in, what their purpose was,...
and how your so-called "economists" convinced the governments of the countries these "Special Purpose Vehicles" were established in to force these "Special Purpose Vehicles" to open their books for their review when the US government couldn't do that.
For clarification on what a "Special Purpose Vehicle" is, ask Ben Bernanke why he referenced them in his testimony before Barney Frank's committee, after which all questioning of Bernanke immediately ceased when he uttered the words "Special Purpose Vehicle", and later he got 100% support from the Democrats to continue as head of the Fed.
For some reason, Bernanke mentioning "Special Purpose Vehicle" to Barney Frank's committee was enough to shut every Democrat mouth in DC, and ensure unanimous support from the Democrats to continue as head of the Fed.
You really need an education on this, dumbass. You can't make any determination without looking at the mortgages, and the mortgages are in the possession of these "Special Purpose Vehicles" which were established in foreign countries specifically to prevent any investigation.

You forgot to answer the post. I'll help you. Here it is again:
Let's go over US history again:
In 2003 the Democrats supported the war in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program. All necessary legislation was put in place then.
Compounding this idiocy, the Democrats took over all oversight of the financial institutions that caused the economic collapse in January, 2007, coincident with the year the effect of the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program began to have negative effects on the economy.
After two years of oversight by Democrats, the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing loan program collapsed our economy.
Prior to the Democrats' Marxist subprime loan program, the world invested in US real estate mortgage industry because it was a foregone conclusion that... you may need to write this down... history proved that Americans always paid their mortgages.
The Democrats changed that perception of America.
There's nothing to answer to, son.

I simply pointed out how your so called 'facts' were in error.

However, if they were your opinions, that's another story. Your problem is you get the two mixed up on a regular basis.

No.
If you choose to commit a crime, and you are convicted of that crime, the public has every right to assume you are, and will always be a criminal.
It's up to that criminal to convince the public that they have reformed.
And, convincing them of that may take a very, very long time.
They had their "due process of law". Just because they were released from prison doesn't mean everything should be like they never did it. There is a social penalty to pay, as well as a government penalty.
Soo..... how many criminals did McCarthy convict? And how many of the accused who were never convicted placed on a blacklist?

The scary part about your post is you really believe that's what happened.
No. The scary part is that you think that George Zimmerman , still afraid and bitterly feeling impotent against neighborhood crime , can still racially profile another innocent teen and shoot him when an altercation erupts into violence unless the FBI keeps his gun. Tema Boggs could very well have been Trayvon Martin if George Zimmerman had been their neighborhood watch captain. http://lancasteronline.com/article/local/8720...

'Obama to Redirect Laser Focus Back to Jobs This Week

President Barack Obama is planning to give a series of speeches this week about job growth, government "investment" and spending.

Ironically, Obama's economic push and message of big government comes just a week after the collapse of Detroit and as unemployment sits at 7.6 percent (not counting those who have given up or who are underemployed).

Obama's goal is to get ahead of Republican messaging on the issue of government spending and cuts as deadlines for budgets and debt ceilings loom in the Fall.

In an email sent Sunday evening from the official WhiteHouse.gov account, Obama Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer gave us a preview of what Obama's remarks will look like Wednesday: lots of blaming Bush and paying a "fair share" in taxes.(How original!)

A May Quinnipiac Poll showed Obama's approval on the economy is only 41 percent while a majority, 53 percent, disapprove. When Obama is done giving speeches this week about the middle class, he'll be jetting off the Martha's Vineyard for an 18 day vacation.'

Greta is a fkn liar just like you, she lied about the auto bailout, the Casey Anthony case and she's lied in this case as well
even after being corrected by a local FOX reporter.
Your dumbazz shouldn't even be posting on the Zimmerman topic.
You can believe Greta made up her own version or not. But she took her cameras to the place where Trayvon was shot. She stood at the conjoining sidewalk where he confronted Zimmerman, and it went directly to his parked car in one direction and the clubhouse in the other direction.

Why would she lie to such a large audience who could easily discredit her and even ruin her career?

Maybe the liar isn't really Greta.

What did she lie about in the auto bailout and the Casey case? I'd be interested to know.
