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

I UNDERSTAND it's a government mandate. What YOU don't understand is it did cause the financial meltdown..... capitalistic greed did.
It wasnt Capitalistic Greed it was Socialistic Greed because the Federal Government along with the Pseudo Liberals were the ones involved in the Housing Meltdown is the point and how many banks do you know that are not FDIC insured which is the only way those banks that didnt lend did not have to comply with Community Reinvestment Act is the other point.

In the Senate, Democrats are fighting to continue this positive trend and help speed along the economic recovery.

Since it's so funny, think I'll say it again.

I'm mainly upset with foolish dupes who elected this narcissist-in-chief again and put us all back into a cesspool of his now proclaimed "phony scandals" and what is REALLY a phony - Obamacare - and hope enough smart democrats can keep him from flushing us all down the toilet.

Pretty sure that was even funnier.

You can figure out who is who in this little scenario.
A few years ago, I read about the Jesse Sharptons complaining about insurance companies "redlining" Urban Reservation residents in auto, life and home insurance premiums.

Charges of racist "redlining" made no sense to me. A car, a home or a resident living in Trayvon Territory is a much higher insurance risk than in any other geographic or demographic area.

It was clearly another extortion attempt by the Jesse Sharpton Poverty Pimps.

Things quieted down and I never paid much attention to the issue.

However, years later, I read an eye-opening article about how the "redlining" issue was politically handled. Politicians quietly wrote legislation that forced insurance companies to charge a fee to subsidize Urban Reservation residents' insurance policies.

IOW's, you and I are being forced to pay a subsidy tax to cover all of America's Trayvon Territories. How many insurance fees does the average American understand on their bill?

Universal Service Fees on your phone bill is a tax to subsidize internet service for residents of Trayvon Territories and most people don't even know it's there.

When politicians are too gutless to raise taxes, they often push through some sort of tax that is disguised as a "user fee" that most taxpayers never notice.

"Redlining" and "Universal Service" are just two of the many racist monstrosities dumped on an unsuspecting America.

And the Jesse Sharpton Parade plays on into the Sanford night.....

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).
Former governor of New York bought high-priced hookers with state money.
Former president had his genitalia sucked and ejaculated in the face of a 20-year-old employee.
Vice president and "environmental scientist" assaulted a massage therapist in Portland and behaved like a "crazed sex poodle".
"Lion of the senate" got drunk and killed his mistress in his car driving off a bridge in Chappaquiddick.
And just one more...if I may.
Mayoral candidate takes pictures of his junk and then sends lewd sex texts.
So, yes, there's definitely a war on women. It's just the wrong party who is the culprit.
All this is to say that Democrats are horny men having sex.
No one died.
Sex scandals on the right are mostly child abuse, incest, closet queens.

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.

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.”
