Blaming the corporations for the subprime loan disaster is like blaming the flies on the corpse for murder. It was not businessmen or banks that wanted loans to be given to poor-risk borrowers. It was the Democrats during the Carter Administration. THEY were the ones that passed the laws REQUIRING banks to give loans to "lower income" demographics and to distribute loans according to ethnic diversity standards.Comment Posted By RHJunior On 24.09.2008 @ 22:47
The banks and investors and corporations were stuck with that dead, rotting fish, and they had two choices: sell it off as fast as possible, or leave the rotting corpse sitting in their office, stinking up their business.
* Are Iraqis better off today than they were two years ago?
* Is it easier for Iraqis to go and buy things in the stores than it was two years ago?
* Is there more or less unemployment in the country than there was two years ago?
* Do you feel that Iraqi security is as safe as it was two years ago?
* Is America as respected in Iraq as it was two years ago?
With the possible exception of a marginally smaller unemployment rate (itâ€™s tough to get much worse than the estimated 50% unemployment rate from 2004) every Reagan inspired benchmark trends downward. Bushâ€™s plan is an utter and complete failure.
Try putting those benchmarks back THREE years, then see what you've got.Comment Posted By RHJunior On 8.12.2006 @ 22:03
Same old story. Elect a Democrat, their brains fall out. Elect a Republican, their spine falls out.
One thing that has to be gotten through some Republican voter's heads, though, is that an election is not a chance for you to "punish" politicians who annoy you. Not when the fate of the nation is at stake; not when the alternative is to hand the government over to people who will surely wreak unimaginable destruction with it. When your teenage son gets a traffic ticket, you don't "punish him" by taking the keys away and handing them over to a spastic crack addict.
You want to teach the wobble-spined RINOs a lesson? Fine. Go find a better candidate, and get him elected. Otherwise, deal with what you've got.Comment Posted By RHJunior On 28.10.2006 @ 13:11
