I have not posted any reference to Walter Williams. That is yet another poster. You insulted Dr. Sniper for his post to you, regarding your reply to my post. Which had nothing to do with Walter Williams.
It's hilarious that liberals try to win debates when they can't even keep up with who they are debating.

<quoted text>Yeah, we'll just forget about the housing bubble created by libbies with "everyone is entitled to home ownership whether they can afford it or not" policies. That's what popped and affected banks and then the domino effect.
June 17, 2002

President Bush touted his goal Monday of boosting minority home ownership by 5.5 million before the end of the decade through grants to low-income families and credits to developers.

"Too many American families, too many minorities, do not own a home. There is a home ownership gap in America. The difference between African-American and Hispanic home ownership is too big," Bush told a crowd at St. Paul AME Church in Atlanta.

Citing data he used Saturday in his weekly radio address, Bush said that while nearly three-quarters of white Americans own their homes, less than half of African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans are homeowners.

He urged Congress to expand the American Dream Down-Payment Fund, which would provide $200 million in grants over five years to low-income families who are first-time home buyers.

The money would be used for down payments, one of the major obstacles to home ownership, Bush said.

It is anticipated that 40,000 low-income families -- receiving about $5,000 each -- would benefit from those grants, he added.

To encourage the construction of single-family homes in neighborhoods where affordable housing is scarce, developers would receive $2.4 billion in tax credits to build lower-cost housing in distressed areas.

The fund also would offer financial education and counseling to protect home buyers from abuses and help them get the best loan terms possible, Bush said.


Bush added, "I do believe in the American dream. I believe there is such a thing as the American dream. And I believe those of us who have been given positions of responsibility must do everything we can to spotlight the dream."

He said, "Owning a home is a part of that dream."

Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the federal Home Loan Banks -- the government-sponsored corporations that handle home mortgages -- will increase their commitment to minority markets by more than $440 billion, Bush said.

Under one of the initiatives launched by Freddie Mac, consumers with poor credit will be able to obtain mortgages with interest rates that automatically decline after a period of consistent payments, he added.

Darn "liberal".

PHOENIX -- President Bush traveled to two swing states with sizable Hispanic populations yesterday and talked up his proposals to increase home ownership opportunities for minorities.

"Not enough minorities own their own homes," the president said during a stop at a carpenters' training center in Phoenix, which followed a talk about home ownership at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds in Albuquerque. "And it seems to me it makes sense to encourage all to own homes."

White House officials have frequently noted the continuing increase in minority home ownership rates, linking it yesterday with the president's call in June 2002 to increase the number of minority homeowners by 5.5 million by the end of this decade.

Administration officials dispute that. Bush has strongly backed what he calls an "ownership society," where people start their own businesses and buy their own homes. And Bush said in both New Mexico and Arizona yesterday that increasing the minority home ownership rate is good for the entire country. "When we're talking about home ownership, we're talking about for everybody," Bush said in New Mexico.

While the Bush administration has been promoting home ownership for Section 8 renters, it is seeking to cut the rental program itself. Bush's 2005 budget calls for a $1.1 billion decrease in the funding used to back Section 8 vouchers, which are distributed by public housing authorities.

The president yesterday spoke about the Section 8 voucher program in the past tense. "It was important to help people rent," Bush said in Phoenix, "but, remember, we want people owning."

Bush has proposed ending the requirement that housing authorities distribute 75 percent of vouchers to people at or below 30 percent of area median income.

Poor teabagger.

Thank you! I was about to go through all that to prove him/her wrong. Not that it does any good. He/she never admits being wrong. That seems to be a trend among liberals. Notice the avoidance of being invited to prove I posted anything about Walter Williams.

Conservatives don't deserve to be treated as we liberals claim to treat people. Liberals have bent over backwards to pull the wool over their eyes, but it is clear now that they won't fall for it or go along with our plans to be a socialist nation. They like the sequester because Obama thought it would give him leverage to pass more devastating policies, but it backfired on him. Now, all we can do is blame it on the Republicans.

Conservatives agree only on one thing: They are right and the rest of the world is wrong! Being prudent, frugal, religious, moderate and "All-American" is not what makes a political conservative – not by a long shot. Most liberals, in fact, are all of these things. These are common sense and virtuous ways of living. Liberals want a small government and low taxes, the smallest and lowest we can have and still maintain a modern, fair and just society – and that is the difference!
Liberals love the Post Office, the Interstate Highway System, the National Parks, the space program, the National Weather Center. They are mighty proud of the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, plus their local firemen and law officers. They wholly support and fully realize the importance of programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. To support all these things they are willing to pay their fair share in taxes.
On the other hand, they don't support military escapades just because some party tells them to. They don't believe that corporations are people. They don't like it when the super rich get away without paying their fair share of taxes.(But the rich pay most of the federal taxes, conservatives like to say, of course they do – they own 90% of what can be owned, their stake in the game is huge, they don’t pay nearly as much as they should). Liberals do not like corporations that ship American jobs overseas, nor those that have turned into bullies or pirates.
And most importantly: Not for a New York second do liberals believe that capitalism can regulate itself.
