Journal Journal: Community Reinvestment Act 2

Community Reinvestment Act

I just thought that would be useful source of information at time of this posting.

I know of people I have done TECHNICAL support who reported at a GM annual meeting in New York in 2007 that they talked about the housing bubble about to bust. It would be nice to get my hands on the professionally created video by a New York video firm.

This article points out both the conservative views and liberal views, gives a great point by point construction of the situation.

But my main point is as a Leader in charge and responsible for the activities for which one is in charge you take blame for the control or lack thereof for the organization you run. As a president the president for 8 years running one should not have been on vacation and actually in the office to monitor, guide and direct. Thus avoid the warning signs. Avoiding the monitoring of such does not remove the responsibility due to LACK of knowing.

In fact it increases blame.

And a president who had majority control of congress and some might say even the Justice department. (although I would say the justices are actually more interested in justice then politics, so I do not support that idea. But it is worth noting people believe it.) should not have had the problems seeing this arrive.

Even during the Katrina and that other hurricane events, we had a president who was rather absent, and had unqualified people in charge of FEMA. We now have someone who knows how to handle a emergency.

The person who was placed was due to a political appointment w/o consideration of qualifications. And they got caught with their pants down.

And that is the point, the president Bush was caught with his pants down.

And he kept his pants down under many situations. And I fear it was due to his lack of interest in things not promoting things 'he wants to play with' and what the people need attending. When you take charge you have to put your own interests away and look to others.

It is clear corporations involved with the loan problems where interested in themselves, and as leaders in their own right also have not learned this.

To those corporations who help communities and assist those trying hard, major thanks! Those looking to a fast buck w/o regard to the future consequences should be made a example of.

These are my musings. I suggest people read the wiki article, it seems fair, more fair then I am here.

Journal Journal: RE: Obama makes history! US Loses Most Jobs At Fastest Rate

In reference to: http://slashdot.org/~RailGunner/journal/226837)

Considering it takes time to claim unemployment, 2 weeks in my state after you're laid off, I can see the job loss seems to have stabilized.

About planting gardens, why not. They are fun anyway.
And why not end capitalistic control of ones food resources. LOL!
Actually gardening is just fun, sorry for the satire.

I am beginning to believe RailGunner has to be a comedian. Much like Colbert on the comedy channel.

If he had not so quickly BLOCKED me I would enjoy making political cartoons on his stuff. I am a artist after all on top of my other skills.

I take it back if he is SERIOUSLY believing his posts. And then suggest he chill a bit and get out of his tighty whities.

Journal Journal: RE: May Unemplyment Numbers are in 1

This is a reply to someone who immediately foed me. http://slashdot.org/~RailGunner/journal/230957

Obviously your un aware of the "end of the Deficit under Clinton". The deficit was majorly reduced under his term and scheduled to be gone. The largest economic growth in US history under his term....

And he was over 8 years back.

Bush has long advocated DEREGULATION, and his policy reflects it.

Additionally getting into major expensive war with a country that had no weapons of mass destruction and the terrorist we were after were not even there UNTIL we arrived... Irag was a expensive war, that to this day cost us way too much to warrant. Adding to the current deficit by Trillions. And billions to our former Vice President's former company go unaccounted, if not more.

And the VP was the major manipulator of the CIA's intelligence, rather then letting the facts stand for themselves. And this 'filtered' information was what was proposed and sent to congress and our Dopey Bush (who to this day has very few working brain cells still working right). (I would even argue he was a traitor to Bush and the country.)

And now we have the worlds largest deficit due to the actions of Draft Dodging (Cocaine snorting at the time) Bush? (Yes he was under rehab during his time he was 'suppose to be' in the national guard.) Lovely!

Obviously the writer RAILGUNNER does not like rebuttal's.
Not sure if he is trying to write humor or he actually believes his stuff!!! LOL!
If Bush still had his full brain working, and I have met the family, I am sure he would have long ago realized what he has done is stupid and what caused this mess.

But right now he actually believes his own crap! Even though he was the hand puppet to another.
