    How can growth happen with amnesty 

    Obama says that we have a good economy and by removing the threat of temp. (my a@s) deportation,  it will help the economy further? How can that be? They have been here for years so they are either working already or living on the taxpayers dime, already! To me that means things will simply remain the same.
    Except for the voter registration cards!

    Morgan Stanley Agrees To $2.6 Billion Mortgage-Backed Securities Settlement

    by Eyder Peralta
    February 25, 2015

    Morgan Stanley has agreed to pay $2.6 billion to settle claims made by the Justice Department regarding the sale of mortgage-backed securities during the financial crisis of 2008.

    The company made the announcement in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday.

    This settlement is the latest in a string tied to the mortgage practices that led to housing bubble, which was mostly responsible for the great recession. Back in December, Bloomberg explained:

    “In August, Bank of America Corp. agreed to pay $16.7 billion for misrepresenting the quality of bonds backed by home loans. Citigroup Inc. reached a $7 billion deal in July, while JPMorgan Chase & Co. struck a $13 billion accord last year.


    Where does this $36.7 billion go?

    “Morgan Stanley has said for years that it faces government inquiries into how it handled home loans and related investment products. In a November regulatory filing, the firm said that some cases had reached ‘advanced stages.’ The investigations focus in part on the firm’s due diligence on loans it bought and disclosures to investors.”

    NPR reports Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is headed for a runoff in his re-election bid…
    I guess Obomber didn’t help him in his bid, after all.
    The Mayor must not have passed out enough goodies.

    You know… one must ask all the “experts”…why is it, with all the “sex education” taught to our children through the years, why is it, that more and more of them need some type of enhancement to “enjoy” sex longer.
    What freedom have they gained?
    No,……the “educators” have simply taught our sons…that girls…don’t need or want to marry.
    They have taught our girls….that THEY can have all the sex they want…..and when THEY are ready to settle down….they can then, find the man of their dreams!
    But soon discover..that all the decent men are taken!

    Example of elitists…thinking they are way too good for security checks…why that is for the peans!
    An elegant and floor-length dress didn’t stop Oprah Winfrey when she arrived at the Academy Awards on Sunday evening. In fact, the 61-year-old media giant didn’t even slow down when faced with a security line. The long-time television host and producer instead ducked under a velvet rope and made a run for it on the red carpet.

    Oscars accused of snubbing popular movies in favor of more obscure films that fit the tastes of Hollywood judges
    This year’s best picture winner, Birdman, took a measly $36million at the box office, nominee Boyhood just $25million and Selma $48million. In 2010, the films shortlisted took $4.7billion worldwide. The combined takings of the eight best picture nominees were the lowest in the modern era of the Oscars, and would have been even more embarrassingly low had it not been for the success of American Sniper, which did as well as the other seven movies put together. However, the film, based on the life of former Marine sniper Chris Kyle (who was represented by his widow Taya at last night’s ceremony, above), picked up just one award from six nominations – for best sound editing.

    Tired of the white bashing 

    I am so tired of the white bashing, especially from the darn elitist whites, who are on some darn guilt trip! That goes for the elitist black too! They are just as guilty!
    They all live in their gated communities and hide their money from the tax man! They demand that someone else take care of the poor! They set up their little trusts and non-profits! Getting rich and blaming others for their own failures!
    If they truly wanted to help they wouldn’t demand such high salaries and live in 3 or 4 homes……no they would actually live as most of us do.
    We here in poor and middle class America….are tired of your lies! We are tired of the tax burden YOU impose on us, because you hide your money….
    Shed your own skin…..we are tired of shedding ours. We are here in our communities,  living together…and trying to IGNORE …..your hate speech!
