    It appears that some people never learn! The theme seems to be "No homeowner left behind, even when they cannot afford it." :
    I know, and the leftist fringe "cray crays" ( according to my teenage daughters this means " crazy " ) keep challenging my explanation of the Democrats push for lowering lending standards in the 90s and the effects it had on the sub-prime collapse.

    " No, it ALL happened after 2004 "......unbelievable. And they push that nonsense when Obama is right now, trying to re-create the Fannie Mae corruption except this time its with a GSE that's loans are ACTUALLY guaranteed 100% by the Govt.

    " Return to Power By Any Means Necessary "

    I have already stated that the March jobs report was sub par. Rant to someone who actually gives a **** about what you have to say.
    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.

    It is all exported and sold to the highest bidder. Which is NEVER the united states. Laws have been put forth to keep our natural resources at home for our consumption first but then the right-wingers cry foul and say that that is too much tampering with the "free market".

    Are you implying that an eagle can't fly if its in the company of ostriches? That makes no sense.

    Tax rates are near their historical lows.

    Do you find that tactic effective?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Everyone seems to be having problems with allergies this year, when they never suffered from them before. I wonder what's going on.....

    Same here in Santa Fe. Even locals who grew up here and are used to the local vegetation are succumbing to the scourge of allergies for the first time.
