How did things go with Lt Col George Bristol last week?
When do you suppose Issa will subpoena Paula Broadwell, she seems to know as much about Benghazi as any of the whistle blowers.
Back away from the bong!
All the information from the briefing with Lt. Col. Bristol hasn't been released yet.

But Bristol did say he gave the Tripoli security team leader, Lt. Col. S.E. Gibson, permission to act freely in response to the attack.

So that means Lt. Col. S.E. Gibson is the next one to be questioned to get some answers that have not been forthcoming by this administration.

<quoted text>From your source. Like me, he blames capitalism....
"...As the house prices grew further out of
line with fundamentals, the financial industry
adopted more sophisticated financial innovations
to support its growth. A key part of the story
was the growth of non-st
andard mortgages. Until the boom began to take off in the mid-90s,
the vast majority of mortgages had always been
fixed rate mortgages. However, adjustable
rate mortgages became a growing share of mortgages issued during the boom, peaking at
close to 35 percent in 2004-06. Not only did thes
e mortgages not provide the security of fixed
rate mortgages, they were often issued with below
market “teaser rates” that would reset to
igher levels after two-years, even if interest rates did not rise.... "
The Mortgage & Financial Crisis was a product of the Pseudo Liberals version of Socialism and what the role of the Federal Government was econoncially which there was nothing Capitalistic or Free Market about the US economy at the time in Home Mortgage Market at the level the Federal Government was involved in forcing the Banks to give loans to Low Income people who could not afford the houses to begin with and why there is so many setting empty now here in the US because they lost them.

Did you know a Pew Research study showed 36% of Americans between the ages of 18 to 31 live with their parents? That's 1 in 3.
No, I won't provide a link. Look it up if you don't believe me.
That's a lot of young adults - and adults - living with their parents.
Wonder why that is LCN?
Post a link to the study if you can. Agree that plenty of young adults still live at home___particularly 18 to 24 years of age.

Where did 31 come from?

You have no leadership in the GOP?
Palin, Rush, Bush,????
Bush tried to warn Congress of the impending "depression".

Maxine Waters, Lacy Clay, Barney Frank and a host of other Democrats said there was absolutely nothing wrong.

The leadership in the GOP is divided among four or five of the most outspoken - mainly Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Chris Christie. There doesn't have to be a leader right now. One will emerge long before the elections, don't worry.

The

Democrats who invented Racism and Slavery

And... At least Bush didn't marry his cousin, FDR did...

The Tuskegee experiment began under the democratic FDR administration...

Supreme Court Judge Roy Black was a card carrying kkk member and wizard of the KKK nominated to the Supreme Court by FDR until 1972...

Social Darwinism and Eugenics was the rage of the 20's,30's and 40's among Wilson and hooded FDR democrats...

Klan Parent Hood founder Democrat, Margaret Sanger was busy controlling the birth rate of blacks and their population...

FDR told the chairman of the NAACP that he couldn't back anti-lynching laws because it would be politically devastating...

Liberal icon FDR has said on many occasions, he never wanted his picture taken with a black man.

KKK Beagle Grand Dragon Senator WV (D)Robert Byrd and Tennessee (D)Senator Al Gore Sr.. were busy voting against the civil rights act of 1957 and 1964...

President John F. Kennedy voted against the 1957 Eisenhower Civil rights Act while he was a senator, as did Democrat Senator Al Gore, Sr. And after he became president, John F. Kennedy was opposed to the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. King that was organized by A. Phillip Randolph who was a black Republican.

If JFK had remained in office, none of the Civil Rights legislation or Great Society legislation reluctantly signed by LBJ would have passed.

<quoted text>Now, I hate to try to make you think, but for the entire length of the Bush administration, we were told every month that it takes 125 to 150 thousand new jobs just to keep the unemployment rate stable. Suddenly that kind of growth under O'bama sends our UE rate spiraling downward. In other words, in the universe O'bama took over from George W. Bush, the unemployment rate would still be over 14%. Now, the last time I checked, the planet has not gotten smaller, nor has the population of the United States.

You mean the two CIA agents who testified at the Congressional hearings? The only two "mystery persons" in that post?
Thought you'd know not only their names but their birthdates, birth places and addresses - and the names of their wives and children.
As Hillary would say, "what difference, at this point, does it make" if I didn't post their names? The point is their testimonies didn't favor this administration and they were demoted.
If they testified then you know their names right?

Were the two CIA agents actually in Benghazi during the attacks?

Once again Carol you're demonstrating that you don't know what the hell you're talking about. Kerr, Mills took effect on October 1, 1960 was monitored by Congress for three years and was determined to be a complete failure. Only 28 states out of 50 even bothered to participate. It also involved intrusive means testing and in many jurisdictions that included not only the applicant but their families also. Nine states also had recovery programs where an individual's home could be seized after death to repay benefits received. In August 1993 only 148,000 elderly were receiving any assistance under the program less than 1% of the elderly population. Kerr, Mills was a totally ineffective disaster. When you just hand money off to the states then you've got 50 different set of rules and increase the bureaucracy involved. With a federal system you have one set of rules for everyone.
Medicare funds have not dried up Carol and because of cost savings from the ACA part A has no unfunded liabilities for the foreseeable future.
The American College of Physicians would take issue with your claim that doctors are turning away Medicare patients in droves.

Really Carol? Private insurance doesn't involve tons of paperwork?
Who says that the government is controlling you r healthcare? Doesn't private insurance do the same thing when a bunch of backroom pencil pushers and accountants tell your doctor what procedures he can order or what medications he can prescribe based on how much profit they're going to make. Isn't private insurance controlling a person's healthcare when they stop paying for treatment because of an arbitrary lifetime cap?
Obamacare is screwed and Reagan was absolutely right about socialized medicine being the first step to socialism.

It's still your claim versus the facts.

And in this case, your opinion doesn't stand up to it no matter how many times you repeat it and refuse to accept reality.

It's clear your politics won't allow you to see the truth.

"...Assessing banks in context

The CRA directs federal banking regulatory agencies, including the Federal Reserve, to use their supervisory authority to encourage banking institutions to help meet the credit needs of all segments of their local communities. These communities, referred to hereafter as CRA assessment areas, are defined as the areas where banking institutions have a physical branch office presence and take deposits, including low- and moderate-income areas. The banking agencies periodically assess the performance of banking institutions in serving their local communities, including their patterns of lending to lower-income households and neighborhoods, and take the assessments into consideration when reviewing the institutions' applications for mergers, acquisitions, and branches.

The CRA emphasizes that banking institutions fulfill their CRA obligations within the framework of safe and sound operation. CRA performance evaluations have become more quantitative since 1995, when regulatory changes were enacted that stress actual performance rather than documented efforts to serve a community's credit needs. However, the CRA does not stipulate minimum targets or even goals for the volume of loans, services, or investments banking institutions must provide. While it is fair to say that the primary focus of CRA evaluations is the number and dollar amount of loans to lower-income borrowers or areas, the agencies instruct examiners to judge banks' performance in light of 1) each institution's capacity to extend credit to lower-income groups and 2) the local economic and market conditions that might affect the income and geographic distribution of lending...."
