As I have said in an earlier post Obama has turned America into a Sodom and Gomorrah with his same sex marriage and murder of babies. Face it, you know Obama only done this gay marriage looking for VOTES. He was always against it but he knows he has no accomplishments so he needed votes. Just where do you think this is part of the Constitution - this is just more BS from the Dems to destroy America. Go to another country and you will kiss the ground when you get back in America. I am not a big pro anything - I have worked all my life-I love America and it is a disgrace what has happened to us in the last four years. We were promised change and he would work with all - he has only worked with himself and played rock star. America will be a third world country if he gets back into office. I believe that was his goal from the beginning since he would not work with Congress- he had Reid and Pelosi to do that. He even told the Russia leader when he thought the microphone was off - wait until I get r-eelected then I will take care of you. Not what I call Presidential material.

“In states across the nation, Republican operatives, lawyers, and in some cases, elected officials, are filing frivolous challenges to Governor Johnson’s ballot status. They know that even if their challenges fail, fending them off is a drain on our resources and a distraction from the real issues in this campaign. We don’t have hundreds of millions of dollars to throw around, nor do we have the Republicans’ endless supply of lawyers.

“We have dealt with many challenges in this campaign from the major parties, who clearly don’t want voters to have a viable third option in this election, but this attack on voting rights and democracy is over the top.

Johnson got 3% of the primary vote. He isn't doing any better now. All he has is the pot head vote. The rest understand every vote counts, and the Democrats will try to hold onto eveyy Democrat vote as will the Republicans. Third party runs are never successful.

And yet you believe the big government should allow us to murder babies and have free birth control so we can screw all over the state. Gov should be allowed to tax us if we do not carry insurance and the illegals will get a free education and insurance. Obama has interfered with religion rights and Gov has NO BUSISNESS in religion. You have DOUBLE STANDARDS. Typical Dem

Obama stated he was not for same sex marriage - and he has flipped flopped and the Christians are now looking at him close. How can you say this is not a dem vs rep thing. You are an idiot to think this is not Obama - never was allowed before and Obama knew he has nothing to run on so and he needed more votes. This was done for VOTES ONLY. Don't be suprised if he reverses it if he gets back in.

True. So far, they all bend over for donations. Some bend farther than others. I think Obama's been doing a little yoga on the side though.

How Democraps/Liberals Caused the Melt Down,By their Pandering for votes,From Blacks,Hispanics?
To make matters worse,they have made a deal with
the Banks they pressured to initiate the Melt down
to assist ONLY the Blacks,and Hispanics they sold
these Mortgages they knew could not possibly be paid back.See no credit worthyness required??????
So with the Democraps?liberal Mentality,There are
where/No Poor whites who also got suckered into
these desperate for votes Mortgages existing in
the USA? Love that Racist thinking? As usual the
MSM is in the Bag,Not reporting it,gagging the facts. Barney Franks,Frankin Raines,Chris Dodd
were all complicit in this Burning down of the
Mortgage system,thereby Creating a Sunami of debt
and Foreclosesures? Fortunately for Blacks,and
Hispanics,they had Groups,forbidden to Whites IE
The NAACP,Who pressured the DOJ,to do something
about the Minorities,And of course Whites were not
included,and have no voice in the matter,as the MSM
saw fit to accept the Status Quo,as FAIR?????????Love to have all you Caucasians respond??????


In 1993 President Bill Clinton made changes to the Community Reinvestment Act to make mortgages more obtainable for lower and lower-middle class families. The changes ushered in during the Clinton Presidency encouraged banks to make mortgage loans to people who otherwise would not have qualified for them. In 1998 the Federal Bank of Boston issued a report entitled “Closing the Gap: A Guide to Equal Opportunity Lending." The 30 page document was intended to serve as a guide to loan officers to help curb discriminatory lending [10] "Closing the Gap," instructs banks to hire based upon diversity needs, sweeten the compensation structure for working with lower income applicants, encourages shifting high risk, low income applications to the sub prime market, by saying "the secondary market [Subprime Market] is willing to consider ratios above the standard 28/36," and "Lack of credit history should not be seen as a negative factor."

While, "Closing the Gap" was not an industry-wide mandate, it illustrates the efforts banks took to meet public pressure to overcome perceived mortgage discrimination. Under the Clinton administration community organizers pressured banks to increase their loans to minorities even though many minority applicants could not qualify for traditional 30-year fix mortgages. Karen Wegmann, the head of Wells Fargo's community development group in 1993 told the New York Times, "The atmosphere now is one of saying yes." [11] The same New York Times article echoed "Closing the Gap," writing, "The banks have also modified some standards for credit approval. Many low-income people do not have credit-bureau files because they do not have credit cards. So lenders are accepting records of continuously paid utility bills as evidence of creditworthiness. Similarly, they will accept steady income from several employers instead of the length of time at one job."

Because of looser loan restrictions many people who could not find themselves qualifying for a mortgage before now could own a home. Under pressure from activist organizations such as ACORN, then President Bill Clinton, and influential Democrats in Congress like Barny Frank,[12], banks began loans to people who should not have qualified for loans. Because banks were pressured to loan to minorities and low income applicants, and because the applicants were low-income who had rented homes for generations the banks could reap profits by selling products loaded with fees because the applicants did not either know, or care to read the fine print that would eventually raise their mortgage payments [13]

Minorities willingly entered sub-prime mortgages in far greater numbers than whites and represented a disproportional percentage of foreclosures,[14][15] The resulting wave of minority foreclosures tipped a fading housing market into a dive and contributed to the economic fallout of 2008.
