Bank of America was ordered Wednesday by a federal judge to pay a civil penalty of $1.27 billion for fraud it committed in a program called “Hustle” or “HSSL”, which stood for “High Speed Swim Lane.”

According to the special inspector general for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, Bank of America, and its predecessors, Countrywide Financial and Countrywide Home Loans, sold thousands of defective toxic loans to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac before and during the housing meltdown.

“Starting in 2007 and continuing as the mortgage crisis worsened up to 2009, Bank of America developed a program known as ‘Hustle’(which stood for High Speed Swim Lane or HSSL), that, as its name implies, focused on generating and selling a high volume of mortgages at high speed to (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac),” a press release said.

Through the Hustle program, Bank of America originated thousands of poor quality loans and sold them to the government-sponsored entities based on lies that the loans were investment quality.

“Although Bank of America received $45 billion in TARP funds, American taxpayers’ hard-earned tax dollars and TARP investments were not intended to support mortgage fraud,” the press release said

As well as some of the songwriters possible lack of knowledge on the allegories within that of which they wrote about? Flack...??

(Video) Mia Marie Pope, a former high school acquaintance of Barack Obama, states Obama used to get his cocaine by having sex with older white men.
She also states that he was a well-known pathological liar that often conned people and was using fake social security numbers, which she reported to the FBI, who did nothing about it.
3 of Barry Soetoro’s drug smoking friends died within a few days within each other, with investigations halted into their deaths. Mia Pope notes this and other several reasons why she believes powerful people must have been behind Obama’s rise from Indonesia and continue to protect him and his criminal activities today in this powerful interview.
And of course there's even a smidgen of evidence to back this up?

Oh yeah, Herman Cain's a good one. His main claim to fame is running a second rate pizza chain and being a sexual predator. His famous 9-9-9 tax plan was plagiarized from a damn video game. He was completely incapable of any kind of original thought.
You're an idiot!
Oh, but he was certainly entertaining! His "Uz, beki-beki-beki-stan-stan" was classic! The comedians loved him, as they did Sarah Palin!

Obama! The do nothing (but fund rasing) president!

By a 2-to-1 margin, Americans oppose the current process for handling unaccompanied minors crossing the border, which requires that those who are not from Mexico or Canada stay in the U.S. and receive a hearing before a judge before they can be deported.

Books Carol,
Take time to read!
NY Times is not an authority on World War II.
Go to the library and check out a book or two?
Have a few friends who were children during that time in Germany; the man was taken to be in some sort of youth patrol. They have said that they didn't really know what was going on at the time; but they were children. I have heard some of them also say that they resented being stigmatized by the history of Hitler; that after all, "they didn't do anything wrong"

Besides I'm the happy one. You miserable baggers come on every day and simply repeat what you crued about the day before..You are aware that doing the very same thing over and over and expecting a different result is insanity? Baggers are mostly uneducated old white racist bigots. Nice resume you have there loser. Just remember I'm happy you and your fellow nutcases are miserable, but that wouldn't change regardless who was president. You are a dying breed...Good riddance. Besa mi cula el puta
One has to wonder where you get your erroneous information from, and why you regurgitate it here when the facts are so easy for everyone to find.
