White House Philosophy Stoked Mortgage Bonfire
We can put light where there’s darkness, and hope where there’s despondency in this country. And part of it is working together as a nation to encourage folks to own their own home.”— President Bush, Oct. 15, 2002
December 20, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/83qjpf
WASHINGTON — The global financial system was teetering on the edge of collapse when President Bush and his economics team huddled in the Roosevelt Room of the White House for a briefing that, in the words of one participant,“scared the hell out of everybody.”
It was Sept. 18. Lehman Brothers had just gone belly-up, overwhelmed by toxic mortgages. Bank of America had swallowed Merrill Lynch in a hastily arranged sale. Two days earlier, Mr. Bush had agreed to pump $85 billion into the failing insurance giant American International Group.
The president listened as Ben S. Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, laid out the latest terrifying news: The credit markets, gripped by panic, had frozen overnight, and banks were refusing to lend money.
Sen. Warren Slams Regulators for Failure to Prosecute Big Banks
Warren:'I am really concerned that too-big-to-fail has become too-big-for-trial'
February 15, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/av3s3d3
At her debut on the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee on Thursday, freshman Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) grilled a panel of top financial regulators on their lack of prosecution of banks' criminal activities with repeated emphasis on one particular question: "When was the last time you took a Wall Street bank to trial?"
Educating the panel on the value of taking a bank to trial, Warren explains:
If [banks] can break the law and drag in billions in profits and then turn around and settle paying out of those profits, they don’t have that much incentive to follow the law. It's also the case that when we have a settlement, and not a trial, it means that we don't have those days and days and days of testimony of what those financial institutions have been up to.
The question I really want to ask is about how tough you are — about how much leverage you really have.

You have NO idea HOW to think "ahead" of opening your mouth BEFORE thinking IF it will HURT someone ...
You just DO it ...
Regardless of circumstances, or the HURT it might cause.
HURT/hate is what you are about ...
As are most libTARDS on here.
Decimate the ENEMY ...

Under Obamacare if you have Medicare/Medical, starting January 1st. 2014---you're going to take HMO plan, and if you don't chose, government is going to find HMO plan for you and you CAN'T
keep your own doctors ...HMO is going to send you book and you're going to find doctor close to you ...unless you have PRIVATE INSURANCE ...
HMO doctors are 'BUTCHERS'...
Welcome to Obama's socialist America!

dems should outlaw water, they can start with water balloons, then water bottles, then water guns,
•From 2005-2009, there were an average of 3,533 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about ten deaths per day. An additional 347 people died each year from drowning in boating-related incidents.
•About one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger.
For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.
•More than 50% of drowning victims treated in emergency departments (EDs) require hospitalization or transfer for further care (compared with a hospitalization rate of about 6% for all unintentional injuries).
These nonfatal drowning injuries can cause severe brain damage that may result in long-term disabilities such as memory problems, learning disabilities, and permanent loss of basic functioning (e.g., permanent vegetative state)
