<quoted text>Really? Then why don't you show me where CRA has been rescinded or overturned so that banks aren't 'forced' to make such loans and allowed the markets to get back to normal to support your claim.
2002 is when it started but changes to regulation didnt happen until 2005.

Regulatory changes 2005

In 2002 there was an inter-agency review of the effectiveness of the 1995 regulatory changes to the Community Reinvestment Act and new proposals were considered.[40] In 2003, researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York noted that dramatic changes in the financial services landscape had weakened the CRA, and that in 2003 less than 30 percent of all home purchase loans were subject to intensive review under the CRA.[64]

In early 2005, the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) implemented new rules that – among other changes – allowed thrifts with over $1 billion in assets to tweak the long standing 50-25-25 CRA ratings thresholds by continuing to meet 50 percent of their overall CRA rating through lending activity as always but the other 50 percent could be any combination of lending, investment, and services that the thrift wanted. The obligations to adhere to 25 percent for services and 25 percent for investments became optional and the means to securing a satisfactory CRA rating was left to the discretion of the qualifying thrifts instead (See the notes in the "2005" column of Table I. for the specifics).[32] In April 2005, a contingent of Democratic Congressmen issued a letter protesting these changes, saying they undercut the ability of the CRA to "meet the needs of low and moderate-income persons and communities".[65] The changes were also opposed by community groups concerned that it would weaken the CRA.[66]

After enacting a technical regulatory amendment in the interim incorporating a different formula for stratifying both metropolitan and rural zones to better align with an expanded definition of them under the CRA in the process,[67][68] the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB), and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) also put a new set of regulations into effect in September 2005 - mirroring much of what the OTS had already initiated earlier in the year (See the notes in the "2005" column of Table I.' for the specifics).[69] These regulations also included less restrictive definitions of "small" and "intermediate small" banks.[15] "Intermediate small banks" were defined as banks with assets of less than $1 billion but more than $250 million, which allowed these banks to opt for examination as either as a small bank or a large bank.[27] Currently banks with assets greater than $1.061 billion have their CRA performance evaluated according to lending, investment and service tests. The agencies use the Consumer Price Index to adjust the asset size thresholds for small and large institutions annually.

Obama's backyard.
first, considering the death toll from the Iraq war is estimated to be between 152K to 165K alone, I seriously doubt that many black youths have been killed in Chicago in the same time span.

nest, I'm curious, even if your data is true, which it isn't, what does that Have to do with President Obama? He doesn't run the city of Chicago. He doesn't run the Chicago PD?

so what's your point?

By a five-to-four vote, the Supreme Court today acted, in the words of Justice Antonin Scalia,“to relieve millions of Americans from the onerous burden of having to vote.”

Writing for the majority, Justice Scalia stated,“Since 1965, citizens across the nation have lived under the tyranny of being forced to elect people to represent them. This is an important step to free them from that unfair and heinous obligation.”

Justice Scalia added that the Voting Rights Act had “thrust upon the shoulders of millions of Americans the terrible and unwanted burden of exercising their rights in a democracy.”

“Many of them have been forced to drive to polling places, wait in line, and then cast their vote because of the oppressive requirements of this Act,” he wrote.“It is our honor and duty to free them from those hardships.”

In conclusion, Justice Scalia wrote,“Our message today to the American people is simple: we are voting so you won’t have to.”

The Magic Negro lies about Trayvons and Hoodies while thousands of black males die annually in just one city alone at the very hands of Trayvons.

But you don't see the lies and hypocrisy because you choose not too. YOU and your hood are a major part of the problem.

Excellent post. Was going to bring this up myself but you beat me to it and said it perfectly.
But may I repeat the crux of your post since it bears repeating?
Mayor of San Diego assaults women in his office (and constituents on the streets, just wanted to add that too).
There are always going to be stupid people doing stupid things in both parties. There are plenty of democrats calling for his resignation. Which is unlike the republican party who support their offenders.
Sen Craig got re-elected after being arrested for solicitation of male prostitutes
Rev Haggard was embraced after being caught with a male prostitute and using meth.

So, yes, there's definitely a war on women. It's just the wrong party who is the culprit.
Obviously those women were willing participants with Weiner and unless they were underage, sexting is not illegal.

Speaking of being political, did you know the new head of the IRS said he didn't want Obamacare either?
And that all those 1%'ers Obama hates so much, i.e. corporations, were given a break with the delay in implementing Obamacare another year but not small businesses who still don't know which end is up when it comes to hiring even if they hire the most people?
And that unions have had to cut back many of their employees already to part-time and who are crying to have it repealed now?
Is that being political enough?
Thank you for your opinions... again... as usual.

Would you rather the federal government with all the wasteful spending and lack of oversight make your health care decisions for you - much less the IRS for cryin' out loud?
Or - if these programs are part of the landscape anyway - states decide and manage that money on a local level and on an as needed basis?
Which one would waste more money? Which one would manage it more effectively?
Any reasonable person would choose the states. But I know you like to argue. So go ahead and tell me why the federal government would manage our health care better and why that makes you smarter than me.
Six of one, half dozen of the other.

You were actually cheering Reagan's proposal to hand health care over to the government.
