    Banks are forced by the Community Reinvestment Act to put 10% of there earnings back into the local communities. This was done for years with no problems. Then along came Dodd Frank. This FORCED banks to make low interest, documentation free loans to low income borrowers. You go to the bank, say you make $50K a year and they have to accept it and forward it to Fannie Mae/Freedie Mac who are the watchdogs and insure the loan. If it’s a bad loan, they turn it down, the banks had no choice but to submit the loan applications or face reprisals from the Fed.

    Then Dodd and Frank pass more regulations that allow the two guys running Fannie/Freddie to go from salary to commission. The storm gates are open and they accept anyone with a heart beat. If the bank doesn’t send in the loan request, the Federal Govt stops lending them money through the reserve, so the bank goes under. They were blackmailed into making what they knew were bad loans.

    The banks KNOW these loans shouldn’t have been approved and can’t hold on to them because it would be bad for their shareholders, they have a feduciary responsibility to them. What do they do? They bundle them together and sell them on the open market which is the ONLY THING they could do.

    Then the Federal Govt blames the banks for doing what they forced them to do. Wow, what a system we have. Don’t blame the banks, blame Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and the Democratic machine they came from.

    I agree she is off base here. On the gay marriage thing, I challenge anyone to show me anywhere in the constitution where it says same sex marriage is not allowed. The constitution leaves that up to the states to decide and that is where it should stay.

    If you are gay, live in a state where gay marriage is legal, but don’t try to force it on states where it is not. If you go to a state where it is illegal, don’t be surprised.

    It’s like gambling in Nevada. At one time they were the only game in town. Now you can find casinos everywhere. If the majority of the voters in a state decide it is a good thing, it will eventually get approved. If not, too bad.

    12000 years ago the Laurentide Ice Sheet was a mile thick and came south from Canada covering the great lakes. Obviously, NA has warmed since then because all the ice is gone, well actually it disappeared over 10000 years ago if I remember reading it correctly. How does the stuff you learned at NYU and MIT explain that? How many humans were even on the face of the entire earth at that time? The estimates are somewhere around 5 million, worldwide. A flee on the back of a dog, but the earth still warmed.

    Water vapor probably has the greatest effect in global temperature changes, how about we do away with that? Drain the oceans.

    Even if you are correct and human do effect climate change, which I doubt, I would much rather sweat than sit on top of a mile high glacier, hell, could even be under a mile high glacier.

    “There’s a certain racial component to this for some people.” He is absolutely correct. I learned a long time ago that an honest person thinks everyone is honest, a thief thinks everyone is a thief and a racist thinks everyone is a racist. Holder is one of those “some people” and exposes himself every time he opens his mouth about race.

    Jumped in hoping the cool water would make me feel better. But before I could surface I did throw up. Stuff happens I guess.

    I tend to get sea sick when on boats. We were going snorkling in the Bahamas once and I didn’t feel well. As soon as the boat stopped I jumped into the water and ……………………………………. Within a second or two the fish had completely cleaned upa 5 ft circle of lunch and the water was crystal clear. Not a pretty picture, but needless to say I knew exactly what would happend when you broke an egg underwater.

    How is it that a someone that has had mental issues since the age of 8 was allowed to purchase guns? Why is it that when the therapist saw the video he didn’t call the police? He called the mother. Why is it when the mother saw the video she didn’t call the police? She called the father. Why is it when the father found out about the video he didn’t call the police? He got in his car and drove around looking for his son. Each should have called the police immediately and maybe they could have stopped him before he killed all those people. How many lives were lost because they didn’t react differently?

    These are the people that are also responsible for what happened right along with the kid doing the shooting. They have known for years that he was a danger to himself and others. NO ONE goes from the boy next door to killing people with knives and guns. NO ONE is this messed up and doesn’t leave red flags all over the place.

    If they had told the police and courts that he was a danger and about the mental issues he for 14 years, he would not have been able to buy guns in the first place. So all the progressive liberals are going to scream that all guns need to be banned. Take away the gun of a law abiding citizen on the other side of the country because some kid in CA is seriously messed up and his family and doctor don’t tell the authorities.

    Sure, that’s the answer.

    “not cooperation”, come on guys you do this for a living.

    No description of the bad guys. One of three things, victim didn’t say because as Sooner12 says, bad guy getting robbed by other bad guys or it’s because the 3 bad guys were not white or maybe both.

    An honest man thinks everyone is honest, a thief thinks everyone is a thief and a racists thinks everyone is a racist.

    Why $10.10 per hour? Why not $9.75 per hour or $10 per hour? Doesn’t that strike anyone else as an unusual number? What tax bracket does $10.10 put you in that $10 won’t? Sounds like watch the shiny bauble I have in my hand while I pick your pockets.

    I learned a long time ago that an honest man thinks everyone is honest. A thief thinks everyone is a thief and a racist thinks everyone is a racist.

    Everytime they use the acusation against an innocent person who just disagrees with them, they deminish the impact.

    They are the do as I say, not do as I do adminstration and we are worse off for it.

    A few years ago I went down in a private plane in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. Had the same experience with the pilots of our plane. Calm, professional and looking for a way to minimize the damage. Lost the plane, but everyone walked away, or should I say swam away.

    And Obama’s comment on the situation……………………………………………………”Those could be my sons.”

    Just sent this to the DOB website. I suggest others do the same.

    To whom it may concern,

    The DOJ should be ashamed of themselves. Whether you believe that George Zimmerman is guilty or not, which a jury decided he wasn’t, it is totally disgraceful that the US government is using it’s power to try to drum up charges against an innocent man. Determined to be innocent after being tried in a US court of law even though the local prosecutor didn’t think there was enough to charge him. They didn’t even have the balls to send this to a Grand Jury to see if they thought he was chargeable. The DOB railroaded the state prosecutors into trying a case that was UNWINNABLE.

    This is supposed to be the United States of America. You not only embarrass yourselves, you are embarrassing every law abiding citizen in the United States of America. This witch hunt should end and end now.

    The quote was “potential prosecution”, not actual prosecution, so he lied to congress and should pay for that lie.

    AVENGERK,

    Good Lord, can’t people on this site read. I DID NOT say that being gay was normal. I said it was abnormal and the proof of that is that if it were normal there would be more gays than straights.

    Your argument about being gay is developmental choice falls apart as soon as you look at the families of gay people. They are raised in the same country, same state, same city, same house, same parents in the same schools and they are usually the only gay person in the family. Then look at how many gay parents have straight children. How is that possible based on your argument?

    I am sure that you could take a child and through forced manipulation of their environment make them act as if they were gay. Forcing someone into a situation does not mean that the person reaction to that situation is normal. It is manipulated by the environment. The vast majority of gay people have not been manipulated into acting or being gay.

    You, nor I know if there are any physiological or physiological markers that make a person gay or straight. That does not mean that they don’t exist. It means either they don’t exist or they do exist and no one has been able to find the gene. Hormonal imbalances before child birth could be the cause, I don’t know. But I can guarantee that you don’t know one way or the other either.

    I can tell you that the gays I talk with are drawn to another man just as strongly as I have been drawn to my wife. The majority of them are fine

  • May 24, 2013 at 4:29pm

    Totally,
    I agree with you. Let’s see that number with the gang bangers backed out. Any death of an innocent child is wrong, but I bet it statically disappears.

  • May 24, 2013 at 3:44pm

    JEDOUG3D,
    You are correct, it is not normal to be gay, which is why there are so few gays. If it were normal, there would be more gays than straights.

  • May 24, 2013 at 3:39pm

    Steve,

    Read the post, at no point did I say they wished to change their sexuality. I said they would not have chosen to be gay if they had a choice. The “vacuous argument” would be that if there were a cause and money were raised so that kids could get an inoculation when they are babies we wouldn’t have any gays is just as uniformed as saying you could give a kid a shot that makes them gay.

    Suggesting that there could be a “cause” to cure being gay is like saying there could be a “cause” to cure being white or male or short or ………………… . It suggests that there is a conscious decision to be gay like there is a conscious decision to be a good Christian.

    Again, read the post. I think it is a bad idea to have openly gay kids in the Boy Scouts and it will lead to its demise.

    Having said that, being gay is not an easy road. The ones I have discussed the subject with have accepted that that is who they are just as I have accepted that I will never have a 10″ pecker. But that is something I would change if I could.
