    Exactly what I said.

    I asked you to refute what I wrote. When do you plan to do that?

    By the way, you're not the only person in the world (along with Warren) who knows that some bankruptcies are the result of situations beyond the borrower's control. That happens in corporate bankruptcies as well. Those aren't the ones that make up the majority of bankruptcies.

    Please refute what I wrote about the banks. Please refute what I wrote that charged off dollars get passed on to the rest of us.

    Elizabeth Warren whose overburdensome regulations on community banks and credit unions is going to drive most of your local banks out of business, which will result in the big banks getting even bigger, and credit becoming harder to get for small businesses and consumers.
    Community banks love Elizabeth Warren. What are you talking about?

    especially with 24 GOPs up for reelection in 2016 in a Presidential year compared to only 10 for the DEMs .
    Hi Nimby, I agree with what you say here. I really don't believe that McConnell is that stupid. He has too many of his own coming up for re-election in 2016 which very likely could end up being a wave election for the Democrats (like 2008 and 2012). He isn't going to intentionally torpedo his majority. He will be much more willing to work with the Dems than I think everyone is assuming.

    We are glad to use it since we ****ing paid for it. What do you think? You coerce the tax dollars out of people, then get the galactically stupid notion that people won't use the service. You don't understand conservatism at all. If I were you I'd stop talking about it, you're embarrassing yourself.

    Coerce people out of their tax dollars? So are what are you arguing for? No taxes and no investment in infrastructure?

    You don't understand conservatism at all.
    Sure I do. You guys want to have your cake and eat it too. That's conservatism in a nutshell.

    If I were you I'd stop talking about it, you're embarrassing yourself.
    No, I'll continue to talk about it. We'll see who gets embarrassed.

    So I didn't confuse what you originally wrote, after all. Okay, then... like I said, you laid a big stinking turd of a post.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Since I am a low-info voter, I have to rely on what the banking industry says about Warren.

    Has Elizabeth Warren Won Over the Banks? | Mother Jones

    The warming to Warren is due, in large part, to a months-long outreach campaign aimed at members of the banking industry. According to calendars posted on the CFPB's website, Warren's schedule has included 150 appointments with industry officials since her first day in September—phone calls, in-person meetings, industry conference speeches, even visits to local bank branches. She's spoken with everyone from Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan to the head of the American Bankers Association to community bankers in states from Maine to Texas.

    Michael Grant, president of the National Bankers Association, which represents more than 100 minority- and women-owned banks throughout the country, is another fan. He met with Warren in February and says he would support her as the nominee to run the CFPB because of her "genuine concern for protecting the rights for consumers and for her appreciation of the role banks play in the financial infrastructure of this country." Grant adds, "She's a win-win both for our industry and for the consumer if she is nominated and made permanent chief."

    Paul Hickman, president and CEO of the Arizona Bankers Association, says he, too, came away impressed after he and a group of Arizona bankers and business leaders met with Warren in Washington. A former staffer for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Hickman says Warren went a long way toward allaying the industry's fears of a consumer bureau run amok that would slap banks with new regulations and bury them in paperwork. "I thought Elizabeth Warren did a really good job of letting the members of that meeting know, and the business people of Arizona know, that her mission was not to somehow suppress community banks," Hickman recalls.

    In other words, "I can't refute anything you said". Thanks for playing.
