    HUD is off the hook for mandating quotas for low quality loans on the GSEs in the 90s that rose to 50% under Clinton and 55% under Bush ?

    Andrew Quomo is off the hook for committing 2 Trillion dollars for the funding of purchasing low quality loans ? ...( HUD Secretary in 2000 )

    Bill Clinton is off the hook for putting in his own people into the GSEs from 1993 to 1998 ? Which included both CEOs and over half of the board of directors ?.....I wonder why he wanted over half of them replaced ?. ...Hmmm...Hold on I'll think of it...

    Hes off the hook for ordering the 1995 executive order that changed CRA compliance from a process oriented compliance to a results oriented compliance ? ( that means they HAD TO actually show they were lending to low income borrowers instead of showing they were looking for low income borrowers )

    The Investment banks traded toxic mixed MBSs . Where'd they get em ?

    Well Govt Backed Toxic Mortgage Backed Securities only come from one place .

    Its a simple one dimensional world you live in but try not to let it affect the rest of us who rely on truth and objective data when making our decisions.

    Its bad enough you guys saddled us with Obama for 8 years ....and his "recovery"

    Try again whizz-bang. I stated my own opinion. And frankly, the GOP and its libertarian brethren were far more willing to see the big banks fail than the dimwit liberals.

    The top four recipients in Congress of campaign contributions from your big bank and housing lenders were:

    Obama
    Dodd
    Kerry
    Clinton

    In that order.

    I hope Kalstag realizes that you replied to his post because it was my doorbell that got rung.

    WTH does Huffpo have to do with my post?I guess about as much as Sandra Fluke eh?What a friggen rambling post.

    What if it is my goal is to make sure each of my grandchildren have their share at $1 million?

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Why is Charlotte's drinking water so awful? Along with NYC, Chicago, and every other liberal city out there? Capitalism supported by Republicans promotes devices to eliminate toxins from tap-water.


    The Obama administration has appointed more Czars then even George Bush. Show you? I'm sorry, in the real world people do their own research. In Liberal-world, people just expect to be proven wrong. Until they are, they will not budge on an idea.



    More government spending equals less wars equals less spending? No matter which way you shake it, more government spending never equals less spending. Example: If the government spends $1trillion, there is no way it did not spend $1trillion.
    using the EPA's 100 point scale, the water index for charlotte is 60; that for the USA average is 55
    seems your assertion is all wet; much like the balance of your post

    The problem is that since the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act and investment banks were allowed to merge with commercial banks, letting the investment banks fail means letting commercial banks fail which means a collapse of the world financial system, or Great Depression #2. Put the firewall back between investment banks and commercial banks as proposed by the Democrats and then I will agree with you to let any and all investment banks fail if they screw up.

    Looks to me like good reasons to replace the firewall between investment banks and commercial banks.

    Robbie. I like to eat hamburgers too. The question is not whether I like hamburgers, but whether I am the biggest hamburger eater out there.

    Is this within your grasp ?
