Progressives and 'CRA'....and this one warrants a bookmark...

Chronic Regulation Addiction....

"Understand that there is a theoretical "optimal" amount of legislation. Too little legislation and there's bound to be a lot of crime. Too much legislation and you cripple and choke off your private sector. But leftists don't care about this because to them MORE legislation is ALWAYS better. It makes up for the fact they really don't have good ideas of governance, they have no game plan, and they make for miserable statesmen. I termed this "disease" or phenomenon "Chronic Regulation Addiction" or CRA."

Once again (comma, moron) dumbass, the CRA created an artificial demand for housing that would never have existed if the CRA didn't exist. Besides, what idiot would loan money to anyone that obviously would not be able to repay the loan.... answer to that question: Democrats.
I also noticed you failed to mention the prime criminals in this matter, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. I also noticed you failed to mention that the CRA applied to underwriters, and not to the lending institutions.
You're an idiot (comma, moron) peedupe.
President George W Bush and Allan Greenspan promoted the subprime mortgage market because to them who cares if poor , low-wage earners could afford to buy homes at the inflated prices , the big banks were making billions of dollars in profits on it. "Alan Greenspan, chairman US Federal Reserve 1987-2006
A disciple of libertarian icon Ayn Rand, Greenspan became chairman of the Fed just in time to save the global economy from the 1987 stock market crash from becoming a full-blown disaster. He went on preside over the boom years of the 90s and lead the US economy through the aftermath of the September 11 attacks and was widely referred to as an "oracle" and "the maestro".

But Greenspan's super-low interest rates and consistent opposition to regulation of the multitrillion-dollar derivatives market are now widely blamed for causing the credit crisis. Under Greenspan's tenure the derivatives market went from barely registering to a $500 trillion industry, despite billionaire investor Warren Buffett warning that they were "financial weapons of mass destruction".

His rock-bottom rates encouraged Americans to load up on debt to buy homes, even when they had no savings, no income and no job prospects.

These so-called sub-prime borrowers were the cannon fodder for the biggest boom-bust in US history. The housing collapse brought the global economy to its knees."... The meltdown happened on Bush's watch. While Clinton got the ball rolling with sub-prime lending, Bush failed to bring in much tighter regulation, bar the Sarbanes-Oxley Act brought in after the Enron scandal. And he didn't do a lot to stop the boom in lending to "Ninjas" [no income, no job applicants].

Nouriel Roubini, the economist who earned the nickname Dr Doom for his prediction that the crisis was about to hit, blames Bush. Obama "inherited a mess", Roubini has said. "We're lucky that this Great Recession is not turning into another Great Depression."

What does the state constitution of Nevada say about the matter?
You do believe in constitutional government, don't you?
It was posted here yesterday by one of your Democrat dupes here. When it was shown that the state constitution of Nevada identifies that land as not belonging to the federal government, I noticed none of you treasonous Democrat frauds referenced it again.
Isn't it ironic how loud you cry when one Nevada rancher illegally grazing his cattle on Federal land is forced off it, but you're silent on Big Oil companies forcing independent American farmers off their land so a foreign TransCanada can build a dirty tarsands Keystone XL pipeline across our country for its own private profit?

If you want cheap electricy, then keep the pollution from generating it with coal in YOUR back yard.
The idea of solar is not that it is cheap.
Its because it is clean & renewable.
The sun rains down enough energy in the noontime hour than the plant uses in a year.
.
As I said let's put energy plants whether coal or a solar panel farms in the backyard of who uses it.

Besides you are talking about coal plant pollution that is decades old. You know science has made advances.

But, you are right solar energy is neither cheap or efficient.

U.S. right wing extremists more deadly than jihadists

In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the United States for political reasons since 9/11.(The total includes the latest shootings in Kansas, which are being classified as a hate crime).

By contrast, terrorists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology have killed 21 people in the United States since 9/11.

(Although a variety of left wing militants and environmental extremists have carried out violent attacks for political reasons against property and individuals since 9/11, none have been linked to a lethal attack, according to research by the New America Foundation.)

Hey Shin,
My eyes are tired and to the first paragraph I can only say I don't think it is the Christian as much as the Government really needs to seek in funds as much as there is out there and it seems as though Givernment is losing money State funded to what ought to be such as Parks School Programs all of Social Productivity which in turn will or call it send out Productive People...Which in turn transform activity toward more Productivity...
What a Church does for Church is all pretty much Private. Colleges, Camps, sure they provide State funded schools these days with much earned money kept to self?
I have already explained myself about much of it...My Papa gave me what I needed always...by the way...
I don't pray I wish if anything I seldom ask and to the outer Spirit I talk to...Just as if they he it and to me a she figure
Many people have many things to say...
Oh what is doen in serecee what? Where there are more amongst he will also hear...
To what is in an inner place is creative ways to solve resolve and in knowledge it is to grow ...
That is just how it goes to what one wants to do in one's own private space should be watched by GRACE and to what is to Glorify is that what one wishes not be shared ...
So in the great beyond and onward light will be shed and words of regret spoken in an open much favorably so....
And V be with you...
The gist of my post is not about Christian charity or prayer but about the Liberal as a public publicity hog and hypocrite. The Christian part is just incidental because my example of Progressive duplicity happened to be lifted from the Bible.

Te idea you said it was about the terrorists shows exactly how ignorant you people are.

Ask them to cite the last American to starve to death because they had no access to food.
Then point out how many 300lb ¨poor¨ people drop dead from overeating, drinking in excess, or smoking $12 worth of cigarettes a day while sitting in front of their 55¨ Samsung.
Recall those two fat-ass black NY mothers who sued McDonald's for making their kids obese.

They lost but the case speaks volumes about black culture in America.

No fathers were involved, of course. They couldn't find any.

You're an idiot DB; you always have been and always will be!
Notice you and Dave have the annoying habit of calling the other person dumb when you post something totally stupid. A bluff?

The BLM stated in a report that the cattle interfered with the solar plant. It was incriminating enough that Saturday morning they attempted to delete it off the BLM site, but everything on the internet is forever.
