When you support an admitted international war criminal who also destroyed the greatest economy in the history of man, your complaints about these things are simply chalked up to lunacy by the majority of Americans.
You'd think you'd have figured that out by now. But figuring things out aren't high in the list of accomplishments for people who deny science, promote magic men who live in the sky and think imaginary people are coming to take their guns.
..........

In the 1980s, groups such as the activists at ACORN began pushing charges of "redlining" - claims that banks discriminated against minorities in mortgage lending.

In 1989, sympathetic members of Congress got the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act amended to force banks to collect racial data on mortgage applicants;

this allowed various studies to be ginned up that seemed to validate the original accusation.

In fact, minority mortgage applications were rejected more frequently than other applications - but the overwhelming reason wasn't racial discrimination, but simply that minorities tend to have weaker finances.

Yet a "landmark" 1992 study from the Boston Fed concluded that mortgage-lending discrimination was systemic.

That study was tremendously flawed - a colleague and I later showed that the data it had used contained thousands of egregious typos, such as loans with negative interest rates.

Our study found no evidence of discrimination.

Yet the political agenda triumphed - with the president of the Boston Fed saying no new studies were needed, and the US comptroller of the currency seconding the motion.

No sooner had the ink dried on its discrimination study than the
Boston Fed, clearly speaking for the entire Fed, produced a manual for mortgage lenders stating that:

"discrimination may be observed when a lender's underwriting policies contain arbitrary or outdated criteria that effectively disqualify many urban or lower-income minority applicants."

Some of these "outdated" criteria included the size of the mortgage payment relative to income,

credit history,

savings history and income verification.

Instead, the Boston Fed ruled that participation in a credit-counseling program should be taken as evidence of an applicant's ability to manage debt.

Sound crazy?

You bet.

Those "outdated" standards existed to limit defaults.

But bank regulators required the loosened underwriting standards, with approval by politicians and the chattering class.

A 1995 strengthening of the Community Reinvestment Act required banks to find ways to provide mortgages to their poorer communities.

It also let community activists intervene at yearly bank reviews, shaking the banks down for large pots of money.

Banks that got poor reviews were punished; some saw their merger plans frustrated; others faced direct legal challenges by the Justice Department.

Whether you maintain a home in Pittsburgh or WV, you admitted that WV is your hometown. So I was right, like they say...you can take the boy out of West Virginia, but you can't take WV out of the boy. Or in language you might better understand...once a hillbilly, always a hillbilly!
Again, they ask "HOMETOWN." Ravenswood is my hometown. It's really not that difficult a concept. I maintain residences in both, with clients in Charleston, Morgantown and Pittsburgh.

Here's a trend you'll be reading more about:

part-time "job sharing,"

not only within firms but also across different businesses.

It's already happening across the country at fast-food restaurants,

as employers try to avoid being punished by the Affordable Care Act.

In some cases we've heard about,

a local McDonalds has hired employees to operate the cash register or flip burgers for 20 hours a week

and then the workers head to the nearby Burger King or Wendy's to log another 20 hours.

Other employees take the opposite shifts.

Welcome to the strange new world of small-business hiring under ObamaCare.

Chris Christie documents reveal anger, chaos over bridge scandal

A New Jersey lawmaker on Saturday said he intends to formally request Governor Chris Christie and his staff hand over more correspondence and documents related to the bridge scandal that has engulfed Christie, a rising star in the Republican Party.

Later in the day, other New Jersey democrats shared similar sentiments."The documents released this week related to the George Washington Bridge situation clearly show the need for a continued thorough investigation by the New Jersey General Assembly," Assembly Speaker-elect Vincent Prieto said in a statement.

"Many questions remain unanswered about this threat to public safety and abuse of power," he said. "I expect to call the Assembly into special session on Thursday to consider legislation that would reauthorize subpoena power so this investigation can continue."

Prieto is set to take the oath as speaker this coming week.

"War on Poverty" and healthcare reform

In 1964, upon Johnson's request, Congress passed the Revenue Act of 1964 and the Economic Opportunity Act, which was in association with the war on poverty.

Johnson set in motion bills and acts,[64]

creating programs such as

Head Start,

food stamps,

Work Study,

Medicare

and Medicaid, which still exist today.

“I’ll have those n**-gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”

- Lyndon B. Johnson

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness.

Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”

—Lyndon B. Johnson

Democrats have been running our inner-cities for the past 30 to 40 years,

and blacks are still complaining about the same problems.

More than $7 trillion dollars have been spent on poverty programs since Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty with little, if any, impact on poverty.

Diabolically,

every election cycle,

Democrats blame Republicans for the deplorable conditions in the inner-cities,

then incite blacks to cast a protest vote against Republicans.

In order to break the Democrats’ stranglehold on the black vote and free black Americans from the Democrat Party’s economic plantation, we must shed the light of truth on the Democrats.

We must demonstrate that the Democrat Party policies of socialism and dependency on government handouts offer the pathway to poverty,

while Republican Party principles of hard work, personal responsibility,

getting a good education and ownership of homes and small businesses offer the pathway to prosperity.

..........

Now there baby clown boy, worship your black messiah.
