"No one was making bad loans to unqualified people until Democrats came along and threatened to drag banks into court and have them fined and branded as racists if they didn't go along with the left's Affirmative Action lending policies...all while federally insuring their losses. Even the New York Times warned in the late 1990s that Democrats continuing to force banks into lowering their standards would lead to this exact catastrophe."

I'm sure we'll have several posters dispute this, have at it.

BTW, I know a former bank officer that told me (many years ago) that he/she was visited by a pastor/preacher/reverend and told if he/she didn't make loans to their parishioners (his/her word) that there would be "hell to pay" including boycotting and racism protests against his/her bank...

Hmmm...

You do seem to have the ability to be able to pick a scab off a pus filled wound.
Besides the Democrats have already tried to put a band aid over it. What more do you want?

LMAO.

As I've said many times, I don't care how someone votes, as long as they know enough and can rationalize why they're voting that way.

People that think "the rich don't pay their fair share", think the housing market issues were W's fault, that don't think we have a spending problem, amongst other issues, are what's called "low information voters" that don't know what the hell they're doing and why...

I'm sure the referenced information is a shock to a few, but it's been known for some time.

Wonder why:
1. Chicken "whatever"
2. B-Man Bob
3. Villa Rica Chick
and various other ID's haven't shown up to spin this? Interesting,huh? I guess some things are indisputable. Intelligent and informed people already knew who caused the housing debacle. The libs probably knew(know) it, too, but they never want to take responsibility for their failures.

Well, BMan Bob has been MIA for a period of time. Hope everything is OK, but he's done this before.

What has happened to the Bill, synergy and BiggDave haters on this site? I liked reading the stupid comments made by the so called liberal left.. I am not all that smart but I know common sense and reasoning when I see it. Why were those people so mean all the time? Maybe they see the truth and that is why they seem to hide.
