    That can happen when you roll the dice.

    Re: Obama to Unveil $1.5 Billion in Housing Assistance in Vegas

    Obama helped to fuel unemployment in NV with his statements which directly cost jobs when over 400 conventions canceled, over $300 millions dollars were lost and the over all economy crash push housing prices down. A home that was $200,000 in 2008 is now as low as $50,000 today.
    Obama ie trying to plug a hole in the dam he helped create by thowing some of the 2/3 of the stimulus more still un used at the problem.

    He's a dumb ass and he thinks it will mend some of the fences he and Reid have torn down.

    I think it's too late to save Reid and Obama in 20012.

    Remember the Dems we don't dump in 2010 can be dumped in 1012 along with Obama, and we can start to restore the Constitution and our Nation and the economy and trash the Liberal/Socialist plans they are now shoving down our collective throats like it or not.

    Beginning of this year the U.S. unemployment rate should be improved.

    That statement is hands down the most idiotic statement of the week.

    Let's put in context for all to see.

    I asked:

    And your answer:

    So, in your mind, people should never get a loan unless the can afford to repay it without working--meaning they already have the principal saved up prior to getting the loan--just in case the economy takes a downturn and they get laid off.

    And the loan officer who reviewed their application and approved it, doesn't he bear some responsibility? Shouldn't he have been able to see 5 years down the road and predict the borrower would be making less money?

    Or the upstart loan broker trying to make a name for himself (and collect some fast fees) by bringing in as many borrowers as possible through deceptive and misleading practices.

    These people didn't plan to lose their jobs or get sick and then get behind in the mortgages.

    Please, show us the 400 conventions that cancelled as a result of President Obama telling people not to "blow" the kids college money in vegas...

    Please... just this once, back up one of your asinine comments with some actual facts.

    Tell us the names of all 400 conventions that pulled out immediately after the comment because they were so afraid that their people would be "blowing" college saving...

    Show the statements of the company planners...

    If you subtract every other statement made on the board starting of course with yours, then its absolutely true.

    So, in your mind, people should never get a loan unless the can afford to repay it without working--meaning they already have the principal saved up prior to getting the loan--just in case the economy takes a downturn and they get laid off.

    Its that kind of mindless planning that brought on this latest crisis in the market.

    Liberals like yourself forced the banks to make loans to people WHO COULD NOT AFFORD THEM based on some moronic emotional based claim and guess what happened, they defaulted on the loans costing the banks billions and plunging us into recession.

    I don't expect you to grasp this because you are far to wrapped up in your liberal emotions to see the logic behind this but it needed to be said.

    I once told you Ryan, if only one fact gets out its a victory...
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Yet another example of how getting your news from an non-news editorial source source (FOX/talk Radio) leaves you completely ignorant about an issue.

    Tell you what, sport, why don't you get yourself up to speed on CRA.

    The history, the numerous legislative changes over the years including FIRREA (Bush I), who lobbied for them, who voted for them, and who benefited from them.

    Do a little reading and get back to me -- because when you're talking out of your ass, there's really no point to even trying to explain it to you.
