I disagree. Who holds the title to a vehicle or deed to a house until the loan is paid off? The bank, that's who. Now, if I don't pay my monthly morgage or don't pay my vehicle loan, who gets that property? The bank, because they own it, I don't.yep, sure is......and all the while Bernake and his cronies and the SEC chairman Cox, sat on their nuts.......watching.......no hurry then, no hurry now.
let 'er all go to hell and maybe people will finally run the whole damn bunch out of Washington! POT!
Not necessarily banks but lending institutions...hunter9494 said:...
maybe you can tell me what banks are owned by foreign countries here in the states?
Minority Leader Boehner couldn't get his troops to fall in line after he stuck his neck out yesterday, rather embarrasing. Pelosi my ***.Plainsman said:
Interesting that 66% of House Republicans voted down the measure.Robert A. Langager said:
Pelosi said they had 50% and the republicans had about 50%. I don't know, but then I watched her speech and the republicans interviewed afterwards nine of them said they changed their mind watching her speech. I heard that there were 15 republicans that changed their vote at the last minute. If this was a bipartisan effort and it looked like it was a go both sides should have just shut their mouth and voted. If they had the vote comments were not a smart thing, especially if they were divisive comments.Benelliman said:Interesting that 66% of House Republicans voted down the measure.Robert A.

Looks like it is the Republicans holding it up guys.
``The Republicans killed this,'' said House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat. Republicans blamed Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California.
Representative Adam Putnam of Florida, the No. 3 House Republican, said Pelosi's ``speech cost us votes'' because it set a ``partisan tone,'' a reference to her comment before the vote blaming Bush administration policies for the crisis.
Democrats voted 140 to 95 in favor of the legislation, while just 65 Republicans backed the bill and 133 opposed it.
I don't think that this is the case, but believe what you want. If that is the case then (as is so often said here) they better get some thicker skin.Plainsman said:but I am sure it would have passed if she had kept her mouth shut.
I can't help but wonder if the likes of Charles Rangle and Barney Frank (to name two) will survive the election next month.Plainsman said:I was just looking at an interesting poll. It was: who do you blame for the economic mess.
That's an excellent deal. I normally like to watch the videos on FOX news. Nothing beats watching it come right from the horses mouth. er, maybe it was the other end of the horse in Nancy's case.Try not to believe everything they say on Limbaugh, Newsmax, Coulter, etc, and I will do my best not to believe everything on the Huff, Kos, etc. The real story lies somewhere in the middle.
In the face of thousands of phone calls and e-mails fiercely opposing the measure, many lawmakers were not willing to take the political risk of voting for it just five weeks before the elections.
