      This man Bill Ayers is as crazy has Amy Bishop: AND Barrack Hussein Obama Pals around with Ayers.

      In 1974 Ayers co-authored -- along with Dohrn, Jeff Jones, and Celia Sojourn -- a book titled Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism. This book contained the following statements:

      * "We are a guerrilla organization. We are communist women and men ... deeply affected by the historic events of our time in the struggle against U.S. imperialism."
      * "Our intention is to disrupt the empire, to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks, to make it hard to carry out its bloody functioning against the people of the world, to join the world struggle, to attack from the inside."

      DEMS, alien is a very bitter person. This person hates our President, but he's here making nagative comments. President Obama is doing a good job, that's why he is hated so much by the Repub. He's also bitter, because his mom told him she should have SWALLOWED him. No love in the household. Keep up the good work MR. PRESIDENT. President Obama owns Alien. Alien spends so much time here, that means the President " controls " his life.

      I am female buggy, and I do NOT like the socialist/communist Marxist leanings of Obama....I believe in the Constitution of the United States and the Founders who fought for our freedoms....I don't need a dumb-arss President to go around the world apologizing for my country....the sooner this treasonous arss-hole is out of office the better.
      Tomorrow is not soon enough...Impeach Barrack Hussein Obama

      Max Pad, your comments reveal a very BLACK-SOUL. MENTAL CONDITION.... just like Amy Bishop you need to be locked away in a rubber room for the rest of your life before you hurt yourself.

      Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were operating with little oversight, their debt portfolio was ballooning out of control, they were not not adequately managing their risk, and they were cooking the books to mislead investors. The Bush Administration proposed a plan that would provide more oversight and accountability for the agencies. Even Freddie Mac called Bush’s plan a “responsible proposal.”

      So what happened to the plan? It was killed by Congressional Democrats. The NYT article continues:

      Significant details must still be worked out before Congress can approve a bill. Among the groups denouncing the proposal today were the National Association of Home Builders and Congressional Democrats who fear that tighter regulation of the companies could sharply reduce their commitment to financing low-income and affordable housing.

      ”These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis,” said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. ”The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”

      Representative Melvin L. Watt, Democrat of North Carolina, agreed.

      So what is happening today with Fannie and Freddie?

      TALKING POINTS THAT SLIPPED BY THE PRESS...

      ONE OF THE BEST arguments made for healthcare by President Obama has somehow slipped by all concerned about healthcare. The President was explaining that most all attending the summet were in the high pay brackets of $175 K per year. President Obama used those in the higher pay grades to illustrate the difference between the disparity between 40K incomes and 175K incomes. What he said made a lot of sense to me and I have been an opponent of healthcare.
