The More You Know... Caroline




Is she qualified to become Senator of New York? You be the judge.


WARNING: This is so painful only a Democrat could watch it in its entirety!

Personally, I think, you know, like Hannah, you know, Montana, would make, you know, a better Senator.

Obama...The Reincarnation of the Teflon Don?

Someday, like in the year 2061, this plate might fetch $50,000 dollars on the Antique Roadshow. The first President-Elect... never to become President!


BHO and his associates:
Guilt by association..... Because you can't come out smelling like a rose, after walking through shit.



Rev. Wright: Obama sat in the United Trinity church for 20 years. Never heard any disparaging remarks. Either 1, Obama didn't go church, 2 he is deaf, 3 he is a liar!

Tony Resko: Sold Obama his house and the property next door. Rezko was a big story in Chicago, accused of influence-peddling in the Blagojevich administration.

A federal judge sent Illinois political fixer Antoin "Tony" Rezko to jail after federal prosecutors accused him of violating his bail terms by a convoluted series of financial transactions with Mideast banks.

Rezko has become an "Achilles heel" for Illinois Sen. Barack Obama after disclosures he and people associated with him had raised almost $200,000 for Obama and that Obama sought Rezko's "help and advice" in

the purchase of their new home.

He had a close relationship with a convicted felon who is now behind bars!

William Ayers: Another pal of Obama's, like's to blow things up. It is said Obama couldn't qualify to become an FBI agent because of his close ties with Ayers. President is OK though!


Gov. Blagojevich: Another close friend of Obama's just opened a new can of worms by trying to sell Obama's senate seat. Jesse Jackson Jr.pops up as
"Senate Candidate 5". He hires a lawyer even though he claims he is not the target of the investigation. Investigators want to know what Jackson knew about allegations that a Jackson "emissary" offered to raise at least $1 million in campaign contributions for Gov. Blagojevich in exchange for appointing the Democratic congressman to a U.S. Senate seat. Could the "emissary" be his old man? I'll tell you one thing. Blagojevich will sing like a canary since he's facing the slammer. I wonder where this is going, and who will be implicated?
.
When you piss your pants you only stay warm for so long.

What Johnnie Cochran Really Thought About O.J.











By Mark Fisher


It was late, nearing midnight, during O.J. Simpson's murder

trial in Los Angeles. Simpson's lead attorney, Johnnie

Cochran, had promised me an interview but had

warned that we'd have to squeeze it in during off

-hours. There weren't many off hours during the

insanity of the Trial of the Century.

"Meet me at the office late," Cochran said.

How late, I asked.

"Doesn't matter," Cochran replied. "No matter how

late you come, I'll be there."

Forty midnights in a row at the office had left the

lawyer in a contemplative mood. The spectacle

of the Simpson matter had long since ceased to

impress or appall. Every bit of legal strategy

and media manipulation had been combed over

so incessantly that there really weren't many

questions left to ask. So I asked the only

question I was really curious about.

Cochran by this point was well past ritual. So he

dished, off the record, of course. Cochran died in 2005,

so, by tradition of the craft, those comments are now

fair game.

"There's something wrong with him," Cochran said,

and he talked about other clients he'd had who somehow

managed to persuade themselves that they hadn't

done what they actually had done.

Simpson was a big star, a hero to some, a talented

person. But, said Cochran, "I wouldn't believe him

if he told me the sun was coming up again tomorrow morning."

And then the lawyer went back to work

on a defense so wonderfully constructed that it got

off a guy who had done a truly terrible deed.



PS: I'll never forget that look on Kardashian's face

when the verdict was read......

"My God, .....these idiot's actually believe... he didn't do it!"

Rielle Hunter's Sister Comes Forward



As I stated in a earlier post (Failing The Smell Test 8/14/08) Edwards got together with Hunter and it went down something like this:


"Look I'm going to go on ABC and have a
softball interview with Bob Woodruff, plead my case, and say I'm willing to take a paternity test."



"When they ask you to take one, you say not now, or in the future. This way I can deny the kid is mine and still come out smelling like a rose."



OK fine. But since he is so willing lets call his bluff. Perform a DNA test on him and the baby. That should provide conclusive evidence who the father is. Since he claims the kid is not his I would also like to know the answers to these questions.

1. She is living in 3 million dollar home in a gated community in southern California. She has no job. How is this possible?

2. She is receiving a payment of $15,000 a month. Why is she receiving the money? And most importantly where is the money coming from?

3. If he broke off the affair in 2006 like he said he did what was he doing in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton at 2:40 in the morning on July 21st 2008?

4. Have all the campaign contributions been accounted for from the idiot's that voted for him?

5. Since the cat is out of the bag,
and if there is nothing else to hide, (the kid's not his... right?) why is Rielle Hunter getting such special treatment?


This is what Edwards had to say in 1999 about the Clinton affair with Monica Lewinsky: .....Oh, this is rich.

"I think this president has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen."



The real kicker to the story ....... He could have blown his own party out of the water! Let's say for example he was the Democratic nominee and he selected Obama for the VP spot. One week before the Presidential election the National Enquirer breaks the story. Man, I would have paid to see that happen!



Watch him here try to lie his way out of it.

National Black Republican Association



http://www.trustedpartner.com/images/library/000143/Tampa%20MLK%20The%20Buzz.jpg






Frankly, I never knew the National Black Republican Association existed.
During the presidential campaign I thought this billboard would have sent a powerful message to the Black community. Whites as well.

Judging by the results no heed was paid to it.

I thought to myself.....should this be the end of welfare as we know it?

Will Obama's presidency mark the end of Affirmative Action?

After all, a Black man has attained the most elite position in the world. Therefore they are on a level playing field. Right? White people made a Black man president. It really didn't matter how Black's voted. Can anyone deny that? 

Look I'm not naive enough to believe racism is dead and buried. But it would be nice to see the twin race baiters, Jesse and Uncle Al, go out of business.


Shelby Steele is an author, columnist and senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution.

This is what he had to say:


For the first time in human history, a largely white nation has elected a black man to be its paramount leader. And the cultural meaning of this unprecedented convergence of dark skin and ultimate power will likely become -- at least for a time -- a national obsession. In fact, the Obama presidency will always be read as an allegory. Already we are as curious about the cultural significance of his victory as we are about its political significance.
Does his victory mean that America is now officially beyond racism? Does it finally complete the work of the civil rights movement so that racism is at last dismissible as an explanation of black difficulty? Can the good Revs. Jackson and Sharpton now safely retire to the seashore? Will the Obama victory dispel the twin stigmas that have tormented black and white Americans for so long -- that blacks are inherently inferior and whites inherently racist? Doesn't a black in the Oval Office put the lie to both black inferiority and white racism? Doesn't it imply a "post-racial" America? And shouldn't those of us -- white and black -- who did not vote for Mr. Obama take pride in what his victory says about our culture even as we mourn our political loss?
Answering no to such questions is like saying no to any idealism; it seems callow. How could a decent person not hope for all these possibilities, or not give America credit for electing its first black president? And yet an element of Barack Obama's success was always his use of the idealism implied in these questions as political muscle. His talent was to project an idealized vision of a post-racial America -- and then to have that vision define political decency. Thus, a failure to support Obama politically implied a failure of decency.
Obama's special charisma -- since his famous 2004 convention speech -- always came much more from the racial idealism he embodied than from his political ideas. In fact, this was his only true political originality. On the level of public policy, he was quite unremarkable. His economics were the redistributive axioms of old-fashioned Keynesianism; his social thought was recycled Great Society. But all this policy boilerplate was freshened up -- given an air of "change" -- by the dreamy post-racial and post-ideological kitsch he dressed it in.
This worked politically for Obama because it tapped into a deep longing in American life -- the longing on the part of whites to escape the stigma of racism. In running for the presidency -- and presenting himself to a majority white nation -- Obama knew intuitively that he was dealing with a stigmatized people. He knew whites were stigmatized as being prejudiced, and that they hated this situation and literally longed for ways to disprove the stigma.
Obama is what I have called a "bargainer" -- a black who says to whites, "I will never presume that you are racist if you will not hold my race against me." Whites become enthralled with bargainers out of gratitude for the presumption of innocence they offer. Bargainers relieve their anxiety about being white and, for this gift of trust, bargainers are often rewarded with a kind of halo.
Obama's post-racial idealism told whites the one thing they most wanted to hear: America had essentially contained the evil of racism to the point at which it was no longer a serious barrier to black advancement. Thus, whites became enchanted enough with Obama to become his political base. It was Iowa -- 95% white -- that made him a contender. Blacks came his way only after he won enough white voters to be a plausible candidate.
Of course, it is true that white America has made great progress in curbing racism over the last 40 years. I believe, for example, that Colin Powell might well have been elected president in 1996 had he run against a then rather weak Bill Clinton. It is exactly because America has made such dramatic racial progress that whites today chafe so under the racist stigma. So I don't think whites really want change from Obama as much as they want documentation of change that has already occurred. They want him in the White House first of all as evidence, certification and recognition.
But there is an inherent contradiction in all this. When whites -- especially today's younger generation -- proudly support Obama for his post-racialism, they unwittingly embrace race as their primary motivation. They think and act racially, not post-racially. The point is that a post-racial society is a bargainer's ploy: It seduces whites with a vision of their racial innocence precisely to coerce them into acting out of a racial motivation. A real post-racialist could not be bargained with and would not care about displaying or documenting his racial innocence. Such a person would evaluate Obama politically rather than culturally.
Certainly things other than bargaining account for Obama's victory. He was a talented campaigner. He was reassuringly articulate on many issues -- a quality that Americans now long for in a president. And, in these last weeks, he was clearly pushed over the top by the economic terrors that beset the nation. But it was the peculiar cultural manipulation of racial bargaining that brought him to the political dance. It inflated him as a candidate, and it may well inflate him as a president.
There is nothing to suggest that Obama will lead America into true post-racialism. His campaign style revealed a tweaker of the status quo, not a revolutionary. Culturally and racially, he is likely to leave America pretty much where he found her.
But what about black Americans? Won't an Obama presidency at last lead us across a centuries-old gulf of alienation into the recognition that America really is our country? Might this milestone not infuse black America with a new American nationalism? And wouldn't this be revolutionary in itself? Like most Americans, I would love to see an Obama presidency nudge things in this direction. But the larger reality is the profound disparity between black and white Americans that will persist even under the glow of an Obama presidency. The black illegitimacy rate remains at 70%. Blacks did worse on the SAT in 2000 than in 1990. Fifty-five percent of all federal prisoners are black, though we are only 13% of the population. The academic achievement gap between blacks and whites persists even for the black middle class. All this disparity will continue to accuse blacks of inferiority and whites of racism -- thus refueling our racial politics - - despite the level of melanin in the president's skin.
The torture of racial conflict in America periodically spits up a new faith that idealism can help us "overcome" -- America's favorite racial word. If we can just have the right inspiration, a heroic role model, a symbolism of hope, a new sense of possibility. It is an American cultural habit to endure our racial tensions by periodically alighting on little islands of fresh hope and idealism. But true reform, like the civil rights victories of the '60s, never happens until people become exhausted with their suffering. Then they don't care who the president is

This was totally preventable


Manuel Contreras-Galdean


Manuel Contreras-Galdean


I wrote about this so many times that I'm sick of it. How many people have to die before we get rid of these illegals? This bastard while driving drunk killed a 16 year old girl named Kelly Tracy. Only 16 years old! Her young life snuffed out. Why does this continually happen? I just can't understand it! Does anyone in ICE or other branches of law enforcement give a damn? Apparently not:

According to police records, Contreras-Galdean was arrested in July 2000 in Salt Lake City on suspicion of interfering with a police officer. He served 10 days in jail. And was set free.

In April 2001, he was arrested in West Jordan, Utah, on suspicion of giving false information to police. He served 10 days in jail. And was set free.

In May 2001, the Utah Highway Patrol arrested him on suspicion of DUI. And set him free.

In 2003, he was stopped by a New Mexico cop who called the Border Patrol. Contreras-Galdean accepted a voluntary return to Mexico.

In January 2007, he was arrested in Tempe on suspicion of extreme DUI. He pleaded guilty to DUI and served 24 hours in April 2007. And was set free.

Why wasn't he deported? This is so ludicrous I can't even comphrend it. But I can tell you one thing. The complete break down of law enforcement is why Kelly Tracy is dead. How many more Kelly Tracy's have to die before we do something?

Why we are...Where we are


As I write this please bear in mind I respect the man and his service to our country.


Definition of John McCain


Why we are.... where we are!

In a nutshell both of these definitions apply to John McCain.

mav·er·ick:



1. An unbranded range animal, especially a calf that has become separated from its mother (The Republican Party.) Traditionally considered the property of the first person who brands it. (The Democratic Party)

2. One that refuses to abide by the dictates of or resists adherence to a group; a dissenter.

Documented Facts:


CO-Sponsor of the "Shamesty Bill" with Ted Kennedy! (Need I say more?)


Votes with the like's of Hillary Clinton, Obama, Kennedy, and Kerry to give illegals Social Security
benefits. (Unbelievable!)


He twice opposed the Bush tax cuts. Then advocates extending the Bush tax cuts that he twice voted
against.


This went over real big when he said: "I don't know as much about the economy as I should."

He said the economy was rock solid. About 4 days later Paulson announces a 700 billion dollar
emergency bailout!


He doesn't know how many house's he has?

Add all this up, with the MSM in the tank for Obama, and we saw the end result.

According to some blogs I have read we have become a party of stodgy old men. This has got to change. We need fresh blood. New ideas. We need new leadership.

Maybe you have seen Michael Steele on FOX.
When asked by FOX News as an African-American how he felt when Obama won he said. "As an African-American I feel proud. Too bad it had to be a Democrat."




I understand Michael Steele is going to run to become Chairman of the RNC. Excellent choice. When your team ends the season 3-11. You got to do something. So you might as well start at the top.

AIG at it again.... repeat 2nd time!



Yesterday the federal government agreed to increase the bail out money to AIG.

CEO Edward Liddy referred to the influx of money as "an arrangement with the federal government." All this time I thought it was a bail out. Isn't spin a wonderful thing?

Anyway they got caught sending financial planners (if you think about it, that in itself
is a joke.) to a posh luxury resort complete with cocktails parties, limousines, and dinner at top restaurants. This new fiasco cost. Get ready. $343,000.00.

Wait it gets better. This is killer. AIG instructed the hotel to keep their visit a secret. No signs allowed. When CEO Liddy was asked why was it a secret with no signs, he said the lack of signage was a result of cost cutting measures!

"We are really cutting corners. We're doing the same thing the American taxpayer is doing," Liddy said. "We are tightening our belts. We didn't use any signage."


PS: It's funny but in a way it's not. How in the hell are you going to control $700 billion? What percent of this money is going up in smoke? What branch of the government is checking how this money is being spent? I wonder if they thought this through before rushing it through Congress!

Fairness Doctrine


http://www.foxnews.com/images/268793/1_61_schumer_chuck.jpg
Chucky Boy


Allow me start off by saying this is something all of us should be very concerned about.
As you know the vast majority of the mainstream media is in the tank for Obama. They openly supported his candidacy. As you have in football, Obama has his own built in cheerleaders.....the media.
The prominent people on the right are Cavuto, O'reilly, Hannity, Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Dennis Prager, Michelle Malkin, to name a few....there are others.....but they fail in comparison to the avalanche in the print media, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC. Not to mention Hollywood! Lets face it. The list is endless!
So why am I telling you something you already know?
I'll try to put it in a nutshell. The liberals want to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine. Even the name is a misnomer. This was passed during the Democratic Truman administration. January 5th 1949 Truman delivered the State of the Union message asking for strengthened liberal program characterized as the "Fair Deal."



A quick summary:


FAIRNESS DOCTRINE

U.S. Broadcasting Policy The policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission that became known as the "Fairness Doctrine" is an attempt to ensure that all coverage of controversial issues by a broadcast station be balanced and fair. The FCC took the view, in 1949, that station licensees were "public trustees," and as such had an obligation to afford reasonable opportunity for discussion of contrasting points of view on controversial issues of public importance. The Commission later held that stations were also obligated to actively seek out issues of importance to their community and air programming that addressed those issues. With the deregulation sweep of the Reagan Administration during the 1980s, the Commission dissolved the fairness doctrine.

On the surface the Fairness Doctrine seems.....well fair.
The truth is it is far from it:
This is why liberals want to reinstate it and why conservatives are against it:

(wikipedia)

The Fairness Doctrine has been strongly opposed by prominent libertarians and conservatives who view it as an attempt to regulate or mandate certain types of speech on the airwaves. Editorials in The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Times have said that Democratic attempts to bring back the Fairness Doctrine have been made largely in response to and contempt for the successes of conservative talk radio. 

What's next FOX News?
Isn't freedom of speech a right under the 1st Amendment?
This is nothing more then a blatant attempt by Schumer and is band of bastards trying to suppress what little is left of the conservative media.
He told Megyn Kelly (in a snide way, with a shit eating grin on his face) he supports reinstating the Fairness Doctrine because he wants... "all of the media to be like FOX...fair and balanced."
Want the Fairness Doctrine Schumer? Apply it to Obama Headquaters aka MSNBC and the rest of the main stream media!

Edward's back in the news


http://www.chicagopride.com/c/i/3693-11084.jpg


Edward's has broken 3 months of silence to speak at Indiana University. This speech was arranged before the affair became public. He was supposed to get a fee of $50,000 but the university cut it to $35,000 because he had an extra-marital affair. (If you're going to use those guidelines, the truth be known, he should have to pay the university to speak.)

No cameras were allowed in the auditorium. No TV crews. Students had to submit written questions before the speech. Then Edwards picked the one's he chose to answer. For some inexplicable reason his prior infidelity never came up during the entire speech.

The students and the university got nothing out of it that I could see. Edwards got enough money to pay Rielle Hunter for another two months to keep her mouth shut and prevent her from getting a paternity test. There is no father listed on the birth certificate.

See. I guess some good comes out of everything.

Obama's transitional visit to the White House

Photo
This was certainly something for the ages. To start off with Obama pulls up in a Limousine with mag wheels. I said to myself ...don't tell me those wheels are going to keep spinning after he stops. He gets out of the limo with his wife and is warmly accepted by the President and the First lady. Laura hugs Michelle Obama and kisses her on the cheek. I myself was taken back by the warm reception. But then again, say what you will, the Bushes are a class act.

For over a year Obama put him through a Presidential Veg-O-Matic! ...slicing, dicing, grilling, barbecuing, filleting. One remark in particular (and taken completely out of context) was when he said, "Bush's answer to 911 was to go shopping." I could have fried an egg on my head! Yet the reception was warm and inviting at the White House. A class act.

Do any of you remember the transition in 2000 when the Bush's took over the White House from the Clinton's?

Believe it or not this article came from the NYT's

Goaded by skeptical Democrats, the White House provided additional details today of pranks and vandalism that it said had been committed by Clinton administration leaving office in January.

President Bush's press secretary, Ari Fleischer, said: ''Seventy-five telephones had been tampered with. Ten phone cords were cut, rendering those phones totally inoperable.''

In addition, Mr. Fleischer said, the new administration found ''pornographic or obscene messages'' on the voice mail of 15 telephones. As a result, he said, ''The White House determined that we had no choice but to erase all the voice mail messages throughout the White House phone system.''

Mr. Fleischer said the new administration also discovered lewd messages written on the walls of six offices in the White House complex and pornographic pictures buried in stacks of blank paper in several photocopiers.

''In an attempt to deprive the incoming White House of office supplies,'' Mr. Fleischer said, ''the previous administration threw out vast quantities of paper, pens and pencils and three-ring binders, which we recovered.''

Mr. Fleischer said the new administration had to buy 100 new computer keyboards, at a cost of $2,000, to replace equipment damaged when employees of the Clinton administration removed the ''W'' keys, apparently in an effort to express displeasure with George W. Bush.

Reports of the damage were widespread at the time of Mr. Bush's inauguration. But in May, a manager at the General Accounting Office, the investigative arm of Congress, said that accounts of vandalism by departing Clinton administration officials had not been documented. In the last two weeks, Democrats have accused the Bush administration of overstating the damage.

Mr. Fleischer provided a list of the infractions to The Washington Post, which published a story about them on Sunday, and he answered questions about them today.

Mr. Fleischer said, the White House did not compile records of the damage because Mr. Bush did not want to make an issue of it.

Mr. President I have not agreed with you on everything. The bail out being one. But I tip my hat to you. Since 911 you have protected this great country which a lot of Americans have seemed to forgot. I wonder if Obama will be able to make the same claim after his term in office?

Oh...by the way...Did I mention the Bush's are a class act?

Can't you just see the lawyers salivating





We are going to prosecute the people that are responsible for the bailout.

Which is on the tax payer dollar. OK no problem
.

This is the killer.

Part of the 700 billion is reserved to pay for the legal fees to defend the guilty. So to put it in it's proper perspective, were getting it up the ass twice.

Rush hit the nail on the head!



Rush Limbaugh said Colin Powell's decision to get behind Barack Obama appeared to be very much tied to Obama's status as the first African-American with a chance to become president.

"Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race, OK, fine. I am now researching his past endorsements to see if I can find all the inexperienced, very liberal, white candidates he has endorsed. I'll let you know what I come up with."

A rising tide lifts all boats



The aphorism "a rising tide lifts all boats" is associated with the idea that improvements in the general economy will benefit all participants in that economy, and that economic policy, particularly government economic policy, should therefore focus on the general macroeconomic environment first and foremost. The phrase is said to have been coined by Seán Lemass, the Irish Taoiseach (Prime Minister) in 1959–1966 Lemass himself attributed the phrase to John F. Kennedy. Kennedy employed the expression to combat criticisms that his tax cuts would benefit mostly wealthy individuals.




The Reverend Jesse Jackson scoffed at this idea of general economic prosperity, as his speech to the Democratic National Convention on July 18, 1984 shows:

"Rising tides don't lift all boats, particularly those stuck at the bottom. For the boats stuck at the bottom there's a misery index."







[ Hey Jesse... if the boat has a hole in it as large as the one in your head it ain't going to float.]

The Little Red Hen


Sometimes children's stories are better at seeing the light.
Once  upon a time, on a farm in Virginia, there was a little  red hen
who scratched about the barnyard until she uncovered quite a few grains
of wheat.

She called all of her Democrat neighbors together and said, 'If we
plant this wheat, we shall have bread to eat. Who will help me plant
it?'

'Not I,' said the cow.

'Not I,' said the duck.

'Not I,' said the pig.

'Not I,' said the goose.

'Then I will do it by myself,' said the little red hen, and so she
did.

The wheat grew very tall and ripened into golden grain.

'Who will help me reap my wheat?' asked the little red hen.

'Not I,' said the duck.

'Above my pay grade,' said the pig.

'I'd lose my
 seniority,'  said the cow.

'I'd lose my unemployment compensation,' said the goose.

'Then I will do it by myself,' said the little red hen, and so she
did.

At last it came time to bake the bread.

'Who will help me bake the bread?' asked the little red hen.

'That would be overtime for me,' said the cow.

'I'd lose my welfare benefits,' said the duck.

'I'm a dropout and never learned how,' said the pig.

'If I'm to be the only helper, that's discrimination,' said
the goose.

'Then I will do it by myself,' said the little red hen.

She baked five loaves and held them up for all of her neighbors to
see.

They wanted some and, in fact, demanded a share. But the little red
hen said, 'No, I shall eat all five loaves.'

'Excess profits!' cried the cow. (Nancy Pelosi)

'Capitalist leech!' screamed the duck. (Barbara Boxer)

'I demand
 equal rights!' yelled the goose. (Jesse Jackson).

The pig just grunted in disdain. (Ted Kennedy)

And they all painted 'Unfair!' picket signs and marched around and
around the little red hen, shouting obscenities.

Then the Farmer Obama came. He said to the little red hen, 'You must
not be so greedy.'

'But I earned the bread,' said the little red hen.

'Exactly,' said Barack the farmer. 'That is what makes our free
enterprise system so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard can earn as
much as he wants. But under our modern government regulations, the
productive workers must divide the fruits of their labor with those who
are lazy and idle.'

And they all lived happily ever after, including the little red hen,
who smiled and clucked, 'I am grateful, for now I truly understand.'
But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She never again
baked bread again because she joined the 'party' and got her bread

free.

And all the Democrats cried out,"We all demanded 'Change'and now
'Fairness' has been established."
Individual initiative had died, yet nobody noticed; perhaps no one
cared -- so long as there was free bread that 'The Rich' were paying
for.


EPILOGUE

Bill Clinton is getting $12 million for his memoirs.

Hillary got $8 million for hers.

That's $20 million for the memories from two people, who for eight
years, repeatedly testified, under oath, that they couldn't remember
anything.

IS THIS A GREAT BARNYARD OR WHAT?
And Obama and CHANGE is coming.

The reason for the bail out

NYT's article published 9-30-1999

Fannie Mae Eases Credit To Aid Mortgage Lending


Published: September 30, 1999


In a move that could help increase home ownership rates among minorities and low-income consumers, the Fannie Mae Corporation is easing the credit requirements on loans that it will purchase from banks and other lenders.

The action, which will begin as a pilot program involving 24 banks in 15 markets -- including the New York metropolitan region -- will encourage those banks to extend home mortgages to individuals whose credit is generally not good enough to qualify for conventional loans. Fannie Mae officials say they hope to make it a nationwide program by next spring.

Fannie Mae, the nation's biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits.

In addition, banks, thrift institutions and mortgage companies have been pressing Fannie Mae to help them make more loans to so-called subprime borrowers. These borrowers whose incomes, credit ratings and savings are not good enough to qualify for conventional loans, can only get loans from finance companies that charge much higher interest rates -- anywhere from three to four percentage points higher than conventional loans.

''Fannie Mae has expanded home ownership for millions of families in the 1990's by reducing down payment requirements,'' said Franklin D. Raines, Fannie Mae's chairman and chief executive officer. ''Yet there remain too many borrowers whose credit is just a notch below what our underwriting has required who have been relegated to paying significantly higher mortgage rates in the so-called subprime market.''

Demographic information on these borrowers is sketchy. But at least one study indicates that 18 percent of the loans in the subprime market went to black borrowers, compared to 5 per cent of loans in the conventional loan market.

In moving, even tentatively, into this new area of lending, Fannie Mae is taking on significantly more risk, which may not pose any difficulties during flush economic times. But the government-subsidized corporation may run into trouble in an economic downturn, prompting a government rescue similar to that of the savings and loan industry in the 1980's.

''From the perspective of many people, including me, this is another thrift industry growing up around us,'' said Peter Wallison a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. ''If they fail, the government will have to step up and bail them out the way it stepped up and bailed out the thrift industry.''

Under Fannie Mae's pilot program, consumers who qualify can secure a mortgage with an interest rate one percentage point above that of a conventional, 30-year fixed rate mortgage of less than $240,000 -- a rate that currently averages about 7.76 per cent. If the borrower makes his or her monthly payments on time for two years, the one percentage point premium is dropped.

Fannie Mae, the nation's biggest underwriter of home mortgages, does not lend money directly to consumers. Instead, it purchases loans that banks make on what is called the secondary market. By expanding the type of loans that it will buy, Fannie Mae is hoping to spur banks to make more loans to people with less-than-stellar credit ratings.

Fannie Mae officials stress that the new mortgages will be extended to all potential borrowers who can qualify for a mortgage. But they add that the move is intended in part to increase the number of minority and low income home owners who tend to have worse credit ratings than non-Hispanic whites.

Home ownership has, in fact, exploded among minorities during the economic boom of the 1990's. The number of mortgages extended to Hispanic applicants jumped by 87.2 per cent from 1993 to 1998, according to Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies. During that same period the number of African Americans who got mortgages to buy a home increased by 71.9 per cent and the number of Asian Americans by 46.3 per cent.

In contrast, the number of non-Hispanic whites who received loans for homes increased by 31.2 per cent.

Despite these gains, home ownership rates for minorities continue to lag behind non-Hispanic whites, in part because blacks and Hispanics in particular tend to have on average worse credit ratings.

In July, the Department of Housing and Urban Development proposed that by the year 2001, 50 percent of Fannie Mae's and Freddie Mac's portfolio be made up of loans to low and moderate-income borrowers. Last year, 44 percent of the loans Fannie Mae purchased were from these groups.

The change in policy also comes at the same time that HUD is investigating allegations of racial discrimination in the automated underwriting systems used by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to determine the credit-worthiness of credit applicants.

DNC Obamanation

The Networks. What a difference! You watch CNN and for the most part they are drooling all over Obama. You switch to FOX and their wondering when the Clinton supporters are going to blow up the Pepsi Center.






James Carvell was there and said he just had plastic surgery. I can't tell the before from the after.

3 Kids Fishing










Barak Obama was out jogging one morning along the parkway when he tripped, fell over the bridge railing and landed in the creek below. Before the Secret Service guys could get to him, 3 kids who were fishing pulled him out of the water. He was so grateful he offered the kids whatever they wanted. The first kid said, 'I want to go to Disneyland'. Barak said, 'No problem, I'll take you there on my special Senator's airplane.' The second kid said, 'I want a new pair of Nike Air Jordan shoes.' Barak said, 'I'll get them for you and even have Michael Jordan sign them!' The third kid said, ' I want a motorized wheelchair with a built-in TV and a stereo headset.' Barak was a little perplexed by this and said, 'But you don't look like your'e handicapped.' The kid said, 'I will be after my dad finds out I saved your ass from drowning!'

How low can you go....and I'm not talking limbo

It has finally sunk in. Democrats realize they have lost the Christian vote. (psst.... maybe abortion has something to do with it). According to FOX Bush took 80% of the Christian vote against Kerry in 2004! To compound the problem, depending on who you believe, 15% to 30% of Clinton voters are voting for McCain! Considering she got about 18 million votes that's a chunk of change! So what do you?

Throw in a head fake! For the first time in DNC history an interfaith prayer service was performed in an attempt to trick the voting public. This is a hallmark blatant attempt to get votes under the pretense of .....the born again Democratic party...... period!!!

Just about every prominent faith was represented. Conspicuously absent was Rev Wright.



This....... ladies and gentleman... is what you're really getting

Hope and Change......really?


Barack Hussein Obama's Dream
(Notice the flag)



Obama has run a campaign on the pretext of hope and change. How many times have you heard him criticize the Washington Insiders? I wonder how selecting Joe Biden a has been fixture in the Senate for 36 years is resonating through the Democratic party?

This is coming from CNN 29% of Clinton supporters are voting for McCain!

I think the shit's going to hit the fan at the DNC Convention.

After 911 I would not vote for anyone named Barack Hussein Obama, no matter what their skin color is!
