cherry pick much? saying he paid is not admitting he knew about the activities of his friend.
now tell us about how Barney caused the housing bubble because he said something.
Barney Frank lied about Fannie and Freddie "doing just fine" and a lot of people lost a lot of money because of his deception. But Frank was also on F&F's payroll.

The problem with you Democrats is you never find fault with your own. Never. No matter how bad the fault.

I know this will be a shock, but thee are these devises that you can keep in your pocket. You can punch in some numbers & it works just like a telephone. You can call certain numbers & hire a prostitute.
You should learn more about this & maybe expand your client list.
The next time some one needs a prostitute they should call you. You are correct I know nothing about it. But you certainly do-so do you pay your fair share of taxes on your prostitution ring?

Read the entire findings. Frank admitted he had intimate relations with Gobie.
So Barney Frank admitted his own indiscretions and Gobie's reputation put into question Barney Frank's character and judge of character.
But a Republican tapping his foot in a men's bathroom stall is just cause for his resignation.
You liberals are such royal hypocrites. All you have to do is admit you're a homosexual if you're a liberal and your job is secured. You just can't be a conservative suspected of soliciting sex in a men's bathroom stall even if it's just speculation without losing yours.
Larry Craig plead out to the charge doll__and Larry had gone hog wild on Clinton's escapades. The world is not kind to hypocrites.

Swiss bank Credit Suisse agreed Friday to pay $885 million to settle U.S. charges it sold shoddy mortgage bonds to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac ahead of the financial crisis.

Credit Suisse will pay about $651 million to Fannie and $234 million to Freddie, said the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the conservator of the two companies rescued by government during the 2008 financial crisis.

The FHFA said the settlement resolves all of its claims in two lawsuits against Credit Suisse

Oh yeah, that's right; what did he say again? Something idiotic like "he was a very naughty boy, or a nasty boy"; reminds me of easy eed.

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 update: MSNBC blasts CNN and Fox News coverage
Cable wars: Chris Hayes and Chuck Todd call out competitors for ridiculous "news" coverage of the missing flight
Of course the lack of information regarding the flight hasn’t stopped outlets like CNN and Fox News from spending an inordinate amount of time reporting on the tragedy. It is disaster porn in the form of conspiracy theories. Rather than focusing on closure for grieving families, the search has taken on Hollywood-like proportions.
http://www.salon.com/2014/03/21/malaysia_airl...
So far, the Pentagon has spent $2.5 million on the search--couldn't that money have been better spent on aborting more liberal babies?

uh......

The committee, which had no immediate response to Mr. Frank's request, is already considering three other cases involving purported sex offenses by House members. Two of those cases involve Democratic Congressmen who allegedly accosted women either on their staff or while on official business. The third involves Representative Donald E.(Buz) Lukens, an Ohio Republican who was convicted of a misdeamnor charge of having sex with a 16-year-old girl.

Stupid is irreversible as you and all the baggers prove daily. No matter the facts, reality, common sense. Idiots like you are the worst enemy facing this nation today. Hell look at Carol, daily she is confronted by P Dupont with the actual facts and all she does is run from one fabrication to the next. You baggers sing the same warped un-American song daily. What a pathetic band of social misfits. My happiness is just knowing how miserable you dead beats are. Just knowing you never have a good day is your just reward.

Fannie and Freddie had purchased privately issued securities as investments. So who were the idiots that bought this stuff? Doesn't that seem strange that they were so ignorant?

Catholic League President Bill Donohue claimed he was forced to back out of his plan to participate in the New York City LGBT Pride parade because the event’s organizers wanted to force him into “gay training.”

“Today, I informed Heritage of Pride officials that I objected to their rule requiring me to attend gay training sessions, or what they call ‘information’ sessions,” Donohue was quoted as saying on Friday.“‘I don’t agree with your rule,’ I said. They responded by saying that attendance was ‘mandatory.’”

As The New Civil Rights Movement reported, what Donohue is actually complaining about is a safety orientation meeting that is required for the heads of every organization taking part in the June 2 event.

Don't be ridiculous. You can hire a homosexual to be your lover in the guise of an assistant if you're a liberal but you can't tap your foot in a bathroom stall without being accused of some kind of perversion?

You liberals go after suspected homosexual conservatives without solid proof of anything with a vengeance but pat your own on the back?

Get real, Lily. You're all just a bunch of hypocrites who protect your own fellow hypocrites.

It's called "stranger sex" and it's a real hoot for religious hypocrites such as Craig.for there's an element of danger involved.

What lyin Carol overlooks is that after these bathroomies connect, they hop in a stall and get busy__if there's a kid nearby__all the better.

Remember Florida's own Bob Allen? Got nailed in Bob Allen Park. LMAO

An Iraq war veteran critically injured in 2011 Occupy protests in California has won $4.5 million in a legal settlement with local authorities, his lawyers said Friday.

Scott Olsen, who served two tours in Iraq, suffered brain damage when riot police used tear gas to disperse protestors in Oakland on Oct. 25.

Olsen, 26, welcomed the settlement but said it could not compensate for his injuries including a fractured skull.

He gave an outdoor press conference not far from where he was injured, saying he had not expected to be disabled due to police action at home, having survived war-torn Iraq.

“I guess I thought that I wasn’t in Iraq anymore, you know, I’d be more or less safe,” he said, cited by the San Francisco Chronicle.

“I wasn’t going to get shot. I wasn’t going to be attacked. Oakland police proved me wrong in that, and it makes me feel less safe in general, especially around people who are supposed to be protecting you.

“I don’t feel safe at all around police.”
