here's why , dumber than sh*t dave, you are one stupid mofo:
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
How many times are you going to post that crap from Lorenzo? You can post it until the cows come home and it's still going to be nonsense.
The Community Reinvestment Act, passed in 1977, requires banks to lend in the low-income neighborhoods where they take deposits. Just the idea that a lending crisis created from 2004 to 2007 was caused by a 1977 law is silly. But it’s even more ridiculous when you consider that most subprime loans were made by firms that aren’t subject to the CRA. University of Michigan law professor Michael Barr testified back in February before the House Committee on Financial Services that 50% of subprime loans were made by mortgage service companies not subject comprehensive federal supervision and another 30% were made by affiliates of banks or thrifts which are not subject to routine supervision or examinations. As former Fed Governor Ned Gramlich said in an August, 2007, speech shortly before he passed away:“In the subprime market where we badly need supervision, a majority of loans are made with very little supervision. It is like a city with a murder law, but no cops on the beat.”
Not surprisingly given the higher degree of supervision, loans made under the CRA program were made in a more responsible way than other subprime loans. CRA loans carried lower rates than other subprime loans and were less likely to end up securitized into the mortgage-backed securities that have caused so many losses, according to a recent study by the law firm Traiger & Hinckley.

Leaving residual troops to maintain the peace and train armies in any country after any war is the norm.
Obama left Iraq to its own defenses and will soon do the same in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
What do you think is going to happen? The enemy didn't declare this war over. Only Obama.
Once again dumbass, Obama tried to negotiate a retention of troops agreement but it was rejected by the Iraqi government.
Why are you such a damned liar?

So would we? It's the first time I agree with you? Barack Hussein Obama never proved his eligibility to run? Although voters such as you would have voted for him anyway? Because he was a Democrat leech, and spent other people's money as if he were playing a one-armed bandit... One question, have you always been on the public dole?

What Republicans Need to Understand About the Iraq War

Admitting that the Iraq war to be a mistake would be a healthy and sensible break from the Bush years, and it would demonstrate that there was some learning from Bush’s mistakes taking place inside the GOP. It would not be enough by itself to build up the party’s reputation for competence or wisdom in foreign policy, but it would be a much-needed and long-delayed start.

TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott signed 95 bills into law Friday, including a measure that will further restrict abortions in Florida.

Supporters say the law could prevent abortions around the 20th week of pregnancy, while opponents called it a setback for women's reproductive rights. Under current law, most abortions are banned after the 24th week of pregnancy.

We provided support, weapons and training to the Afghanis when Russia invaded their country. The Taliban grew out of that group of Afghanis.
We got rid of Saddam and his thugs in Kuwait when Iraq invaded their country as well.
So I have no trouble comprehending our actions in the Middle East. We've done far more good than bad.
Perhaps if the Middle East at least made an effort to catch up to the 21st century, it might help.
You really are an abysmally stupid individual.
We've far more harm in the Middle East than good. Bush's invasion of Iraq unleashed radical sectarian forces and destabilized the region making it easier for Iran to supply Syria.
I hold no brief for Saddam Hussein, he was a brutal dictator but no worse than others that this country has supported and even put into power like the Shah of Iran, Augusto Pinochet of Chile and Fulgencio Batista of Cuba. Saddam himself was supported by the Reagan administration even when he was gassing the Kurds. Saddam was however able to keep the various sectarian factions in line. There were no suicide bombings or forced dislocations when he was in power and the Christian Chaldeans were pretty much left alone. With the ouster of Saddam these factions wreaked havoc and created the chaos we're seeing today.
George HW Bush after calling for an uprising against Saddam but when it happened did nothing to help. When Saddam's brutal counter-attack against the rebellions began, the order was given to American troops already deep inside Iraq and armed to the teeth not to assist the rebellion in any way -- though everyone knew that they were condemning the Intifada to an awful defeat. Thanks to their high-flying reconnaissance planes, U.S. commanders would observe the brutal process as it occurred.
