I never understand why they put the words 'Great' and 'recession' together? What is so Great about a recession? For instance If I go out to dinner and ask how it was my wife might say it was 'great', but I doubt she would say 'It was a recession'.

Oh my, what a surprise! I'm sure it has nothing to do with Obama being black. He has done such an outstanding job for the minorities in our country, and especially blacks. He should receive a "Superman" award for that "hope and change" he has brought about for our country.

So if no white people vote for a black candidate it's because they are obviously racist.

But if no black people vote for a white candidate then...

We'll see what the resident liberal tards have to say.

WOW!! It is awesome that you can extract a page from a document...congrats. You fail to prove anything other than a regulation is in place that banks are responsible if they have in their employ, someone that did something that involves money. The article I cited stated that banks are dismissing ANYONE that has questionable history because they don't want to face a lawsuit later if that person is involved and it is determined that the bank didn't do "due diligence". Welcome to the world of Obama and over burdening regulations, along with a tort system that can make anyone guilty of the most ridiculous things.

Our government contractors are being told they don't have to comply with Federal law because the 60 day notices to workers that will lose their jobs would show up right before the election...what a shock. Obama will stop at nothing, including breaking our laws to get re-elected. I guess the "Fast and Furious" guys were mentored by Obama and learned well.

Wow, you should call yourself just BS, because that's what you spit out. The reg has been in place for decades. You are so misguided you don't even see the real problem with the article you posted. It's about time, and leave it to the greedy top execs at the bank to take it to this extreme. God forbid his bonus gets a chunk taken out of it because they can't follow the regs.

Do you even realize how stupid you sound? I should have known, coming from someone who didn't know we weren't at war when Pearl Harbor was bombed.

Wow, you really are a stupid moron, aren't you? You copy a page from a document dated 2007 and claim something has been in place for decades. The new guidelines for enforcement were enacted in 2011 because Obama and his cronies are trying to penalize those big bad CEOs. This is just another example of Obama and his overreach causing headaches for the average Joe just trying to make a living.

Just like the bank bailout that was supposed to help people with their mortgages, which is BS anyway. Banks got helped and the mortgage holders...well...too bad.

Try again sunshine...

Not so fast there,**sweet cheeks**, the reg has been in place for over a decade, how's that pumpkin, better? Yup, I've posted a document directly from the source, something you are completely incapable of because you're glued to youtube, topix and fox news. There is a big world out there, maybe you should leave the limits of your city and explore it for a change.

The amendment was to clarify the offenses requiring an application, specifically, offenses such as the subject of the article posted above. Who's the bad guy?? The GREEDY BANK EXECS! Here it is, again directly from the source.....Note the part that states the amendment is meant to REDUCE REGULATORY BURDEN.

"Section 19 of the Federal Deposit Insurance (FDI) Act prohibits, without the prior written consent of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), a person convicted of criminal offense involving dishonesty, breach of trust, money laundering, or drugs from participating in the affairs of an FDIC-insured institution. On May 10, 2011, the FDIC Board of Directors clarified certain criteria in the FDICís Statement of Policy (SOP) for Section 19 of the FDI Act, including complete expungement, de minimis factors, and de minimis factors for "bad checks." Clarification of the criteria is expected to reduce the number of Section 19 applications and regulatory burden. The updated SOP is available on the FDICís Web site and was published in the Federal Register on May 13, 2011.
Statement of Applicability to Institutions under $1 Billion in Total Assets: This guidance applies to all FDIC-insured depository institutions including community banks.
Highlights:
A Section 19 application is not required for
Complete Expungement: a record of conviction that is not accessible by any party, including law enforcement, even by court order;
De minimis Criteria: Offenses punishable by imprisonment for a term of one year or less and/or a fine of $1,000 or less; or
De minimis Criteria for "Bad Checks": If there is one conviction for issuing a bad check based on one or more checks with an aggregate face value of $1,000 or less, and no insured financial institution or insured credit union was a payee on any of the checks, the conviction will qualify under the de minimis offense exception."

Was it fox news that told you 9/11 was the first time America was attacked on our own soil? What a dolt. Now Iím done with you.
