The banks did in fact start issuing sub-prime loans and once the derivatives became profitable the new industry was created on the bubble. So yes, it was in fact a major government failing.
    Why would you reprint my challenge to the statement of apdst and then give us a link which provides no proof of the claim?

    And apdst - still waiting for you to prove your claim

    I'm sure cognitive dissonance is resulting in profits for the makers of Motrin.
    Those are not mutually exclusive themes. In fact, they are complementary.

    Im a democratic socialist....
    ORLY

    sounds reformist

    Because your challenge is actually a history of how it got corrupted, it's all there. The only thing you need to add is the abuses that happened because of it.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    So your contention is that rich donors are paying millions to accomplish nothing?

    I have to admit logically that makes no sense but man there are a couple of big names tied to the movement and it would seem that's exactly the case.

    Forced? No. Implied that you better or face repercussions? Indeed.

    All bad loans? Nope, once the ball got rolling the money was too good.

    The CRA did not in any way force banks to provide risky loans. The CRA clearly states its mandate: that minority borrower's loan applications should be processed in the same manner in which majority loan applicants applications are processed. THAT IS ALL!

    Strictly speaking, the CRA demanded that quality loans be applicable to minority borrowers capable of repaying their promises; not for anyone who is a minority to be able to obtain credit regardless of financial status.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
