After all, I'd hate to think you were lying... especially since you claim to walk with Jesus....
Have no idea what you're talking about. Here's what happened just to put your mind at rest once and for all.

In July 1993, President Bill Clinton asked regulators to reform the CRA in order to make examinations more consistent to deal with the problems of the inner city and distressed rural communities.

In 1999, the Congress enacted and President Clinton signed into law the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act. This law repealed the part of the Glass–Steagall Act that had prohibited a bank from offering a full range of investment, commercial banking, and insurance services since its enactment in 1933.

So are you okay now with this so we can move on?

The odds of that precise proximity is are astronomical odds I'd say.

It's called the Goldilocks zone Carol. Not too warm. Not too cold.
Earth-size,‘Goldilocks-zone’ planet found in distant solar system
Video: NASA's Kepler Space Telescope has discovered the first validated Earth-size planet orbiting in the habitable zone of a distant star, an area where liquid water might exist on its surface.(NASA Ames Research Center)
By Meeri Kim, Published: April 17 E-mail the writer
The hunt for Earth’s alien twin reached a new milestone with the discovery of a faraway planet that’s similar in size to our globe and has the right temperature to potentially support liquid water — and possibly life.
The planet, called Kepler-186f, is the first Earth-size sphere outside our solar system with an orbit around its star that is in the “Goldilocks zone”— the habitable range that is neither too hot nor too cold.

Researchers say the planet may meet what they believe are two basic requirements for life. Being close to Earth’s size increases the chances that the planet has a rocky, rather than gaseous, surface. And because it gets the right amount of stellar radiation, Kepler-186f is able to support liquid water, as opposed to ice or vapor.
“We don’t fully understand what makes a planet habitable, so we look for what we know,” said theoretical astrophysicist Brad Hansen of UCLA, who was not involved in the finding.“The basic assumption is that you need to have a rocky surface to stand on and liquid water for life to use.”
Using data gathered by NASA’s Kepler space-based telescope, the team of astronomers discovered a group of five planets orbiting a star 500 light-years from Earth. The star, called Kepler-186, is a relatively cool red dwarf about half the size of our sun. Four of the planets venture extremely close to the star, making them too hot for liquid water — and therefore, life as we know it. But the outermost planet soaks in just enough energy for surface water to stay liquid.
Last year, the Kepler spacecraft discovered three exoplanets, all larger than Earth, within the habitable zone of two different stars. One of the exoplanets, Kepler-62f, is 40 percent larger than Earth and previously held the record for the habitable exoplanet that is closest to the size of our planet. The newly found Kepler-186f set a new record by being only 10 percent larger than Earth.

Just explain the protective ring around our planet - in scientific terms, of course - that keeps the sun from burning us to a crisp.

And no one is "eliminating" science. Most scientists are "eliminating" all other possible theories besides their own secular explanations.

But that's changing. Thank goodness.

Obama Administration REALLY Cares For Veterans

Plausible deniability...

WASHINGTON (CNN)-- Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a controversial plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance.

http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/03/10/vetera ...

Of course Obama knew nothing about this nor anything else negative occurring during his reign so, yet again, he's really, REALLY mad!

Clinton benefitted by a tech boom. Jobs were created by increased commerce as did the revenue surplus.

A huge part of the responsibility of many of these various obstacles we are faced with originates with the ever increasing inequality that republicans have for tens of decades have been producing through their “Austerity” policies and economics. Observe the two parties as to how they contributed to our nation. Hey what the heck you can make money by comprehending these simple numbers. For inequality note the income gap generator. Greater the inequality to distributions the bigger the bear..
You can not decipher the differences of the two parties? Exposing a lack of…?
Want to make some money on stock markets. Play the numbers..
How to go long on Markets. Simply observe the party in power.{R right wing} Play Bear ,{D left wing} Play Bull simple as that.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..
