"Single young women in their sexual prime—that is, their 20s and early 30s, the same age as the women at the business-­school party—are for the first time in history more success­ful, on average, than the single young men around them. They are more likely to have a college degree and, in aggregate, they make more money. What makes this remarkable development possible is not just the pill or legal abortion but the whole new landscape of sexual freedom—the ability to delay marriage and have temporary relationships that don’t derail education or career. To put it crudely, feminist progress right now largely depends on the existence of the hookup culture. And to a surprising degree, it is women—not men—who are perpetuating the culture, especially in school, cannily manipulating it to make space for their success, always keeping their own ends in mind."

I agree with this, other than the "largely depends on the existence of the hookup culture". It doesn't depend upon it, it's just there if women want.

Why does this scare you?

Just take a look around at the social wreckage in today's society. It's not that hard to figure out why.

Yep, we can see the social wreckage. That's why you guys need to step aside & let us, women, do what needs doing. Things like stop large banking corporations from giving out loans to people which doesn't stand a chance of ever paying it back. Ever hear of Fannie May & Freddie Mac? Who supported & endorsed Fannie & Freddie? You guys back under Bush. Don't believe me? I almost forgot, you're republican ~~ even if you do believe me you'll probably say you don't. So click the vid from 1 of Bush's speeches where he talks about giving loans to over 5,000,000 more low-income people & supports Fannie May & Freddie Mac. How did that turn out? A homeowner crisis with a massive # of foreclosures. It's still going on.

Here's the republican speech from back then. It's just over 1 minute long ~~ but says "a lot" of things worth hearing.



Step aside, guys, let us ~~ women ~~ have our turn. We can't possibly screw things up any worse than you have.

What are all of these "independent" women going to do (without men) if we have a financial collapse and there are no more office jobs or bank loans or college degrees?

Are they going to dig the water wells, plow the fields, tend to the farm animals, work on the tractor engine, wrangle and slaughter the cows, build a barn, build the solar panels & windmills for power, tend to the chickens, etc...?

I really think the women have gotten way off track and one day will regret the pushing of men aside.

(By aborting most of their offspring, they won't have help from them either)

So because of your warped view of certain political opinions you treat men like dirt.

Wait, that video can't be right. It doesn't put all the blame on Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.

That's never going to happen and you know it. Just like I know the Democrats aren't going to take away the Second Amendment. You need to grow up and learn what rhetoric and red meat politics are all about.

If true, why are the Democrats talking about a war on women and bragging about the Lily Ledbetter law (worthless until you can afford an attorney and all that goes with it)?

Get over yourself. We've had Democratic presidents, Democratic majority Congresses, Republican presidents, Republican majority Congresses, and still abortion is legal and gay marriage isn't (at least across the land).

You are wrong on the second amendment. It may not be overturned by another amendment but would be defacto removed by a democrat loaded court system.
I hear you, but I think the disarmament process would get ugly enough to give us Civil War II the first day. With almost every state allowing CCW, that genie's not going back in the bottle, either. What they'll do from the bench is to try and use taxation to achieve their goals.

Nothing in this clipped collage comes close to talking about getting people with bad credit history housing loans or deliberately ensuring loans for income challenged people. Without having to compile or repeat something over and again, I heard that former Republican President promoting just such a thing.

As well, the video keeps flashing back to 2004, Republicans had control of both the House and the Senate, the minority party in whole, let alone a single member from each branch, bears responsibility for it.

Your side has tried to shellac Obama for trying to place blame yet you guys had total power for the first 6 of the 8 years of his Presidency and certainly in 2004 when these hearings were held. If the Republicans felt Fannie and Freddie should have been more tightly regulated as the youtube clip suggests, they had the votes to do so, or did they?

What your clip doesn't show or tell is what the committee vote, which was majority Republican was.

"It's your fault we did nothing" great argument.

From today's Daily Caller:

"With landmark lawsuit, Barack Obama pushed banks to give subprime loans to Chicago’s African-Americans"

President Barack Obama was a pioneering contributor to the national subprime real estate bubble, and roughly half of the 186 African-American clients in his landmark 1995 mortgage discrimination lawsuit against Citibank have since gone bankrupt or received foreclosure notices.

As few as 19 of those 186 clients still own homes with clean credit ratings, following a decade in which Obama and other progressives pushed banks to provide mortgages to poor African Americans...

Nonetheless, Obama has pursued the same top-down mortgage lending policies in the White House.

Obama’s lawsuit was one element of a national “anti-redlining” campaign led by Chicago’s progressive groups, who argued that banks unfairly refused to lend money to people living within so-called “redlines” around African-American communities. The campaign was powered by progressives’ moral claim that their expertise could boost home ownership among the United States’ most disadvantaged minority, African-Americans.

Progressive activists’ ambition instead contributed greatly to a housing bubble that burst in 2007, crashed the nation’s economy in 2008, wiped out at least $4 trillion in equity, kept unemployment above 8 percent for four years, and damaged the intended beneficiaries of looser mortgage lending standards.

In the White House, Obama has continued to intensify regulatory pressure on banks to provide more risky loans to African-Americans and Latinos. He has used lawsuits to fund his allies. And taxpayers are now unwittingly contributing to a re-inflation of housing prices.

Meanwhile, the president has blamed the housing bubble on supposed GOP deregulation, even though President George W. Bush expanded the regulation-expanding, anti-redlining policies established by progressives during Bill Clinton’s presidency....
