    for both you and maggie: i work for a bank, i know how banks work. most of the bad loans were not made by banks, the were made by companies like countrywide. CRA NEVER forced a bank to make a bad loan, that's just palin ridiculous. [B] CRA ensured that banks applied equal criteria to potential borrowers when deciding whether or not to make a loan. Please link to the actual verbiage which forces banks to make bad loans, or to apply different standards to borrowers. I'll wait.

    here's a link for you, just in case:

    Let me reiterate what I have brought up on this thread, and other threads with similar subject manner, so that you can deny it has any point once again:

    -Palin is an idiot and will attack anybody just so someone pays attention to her. She is a whore.

    Calling a woman a whore because you disagree with her politically is low class. just sayin... I mean if you want to be all sexist about it, that's your call.

    Publicity whores can be male, too.

    IMO, regardless of her politics, there is no question that Ms. Palin IS a publicity whore.

    A lender lends someone money (for a fee) even though it probably won't be repaid.

    The original lender sells that loan to another company (for a fee), and all risk is transferred to that other company.

    The original lender profited and carries no risk, so for its purposes the borrower could have been a shetland pony.

    That's how it worked.

    Calling a man "limp and impotent" for criticizing her politics is low class and sexist, but that is Palin's call, too. If she is going to dish it out, then she should expect to get the same in return.

    As for your other claims here, sorry, but why don't you have links for them when you have a link for the above?
    Sub-prime mortgages, anyone???

    Re: Palin's reckless views on obesity

    Back to the original point of this thread... The U.S. has a serious obeisity problem. I didn't see anything in the First Lady's comments that MANDATED government requiring parents to adhere to a specific regimin of diet and exercise for their kids. Public information to try to educate parents and get them to do the right thing is well within the tradition of what many first ladies have done... remember Nancy Reagan's "just say no" campaign regarding drugs? Was that unnecessary government intrusion? Of course not. The U.S. has a terrible obeisity problem. I don't expect government to go into every home to monitor the dietary customs of each family and check a daily exercise log... (though some parents perhaps would benefit from it), but public advocacy of this nature is well within the moral suasion that a first lady can bring to bear on an important public problem, in this case a health one...

Which in turn leads to more dead brown people. Really it all comes down to how many brown people you want in the world.
    I want to government to be stuffed into the little box it was intended to be in. I want the spending to be Constitutional in nature. Socialist redistribution isn't in there.

    Defense, war and national security... they are permitted under the Constitution.

    As for brown people... I don't care what color terrorists come in. They need be stopped, offed if need be.

    When it comes to these First Ladies interests... they need not be funded by government and government departments that should be shut or drastically cut. Just Say No could have been funded by the private sector. Of all the First Ladies interests, this message was probably the most memorable and effective.
