Move forward, not back, on banks

  • Follow Letters

In times like these we need to move forward, not back to the status quo!

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. We have tried it the banks' way and look at the mess we are in. Plus we the people had to bail out the banks from their own mess.

So why should we join to continue with this mess? We should not!

Letss look at this, Banks in

Letss look at this, Banks in the 70's under Carter considered, mean evil and greedy because they wouldn't lend money to the "poor". Carter passed the community reinvestment act forcing banks to lend money to the unqualified. During the 90's and Clinton the community reinvestment act was inforced...During the early 2000's Bush, McCain and others warned Barney Frank that Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were over extended and need to be looked at..Barney's remark "If it isn't broke.."so exactly how is this the banks fault Wanda? Perhaps the faulty is more due to failure of regulators both on Wall Street and in the Banks..

Gee Wanda, our government is
Unpublished

Gee Wanda, our government is TRILLIONS in debt, and spending like drunken sailors in a brothel. I stand corrected...drunken sailors only spend THEIR money. Our wonderful government is spending OUR money and you want to trust them with more of it? That's like hiring a drug addict manage your pharmacy. Not me baby! Privatize Social Security and let the PEOPLE handle their own financial affairs. If they fail, it will be their fault, not because of this Ponzi scheme known as Social Security. TRUST OUR GOVERNMENT? WHAT A JOKE!

Thanks WIZZ...I appreciate the humor. I still remember the 9 most terrifying words ever spoken. "We're from the government, and we're here to help."

Funny how if you dare speak
Unpublished

Funny how if you dare speak out against government, especially THIS government, you are called "coo coo," along with "extremists, sexists," and my favorite "racists," by the libs. In other words, the left loves freedom of speech, as long as it doesn't criticize any candidate or policy they advocate.
