"Hal?"

You mean the computer from 2001: A Space Odyssey?

wiki: "Concerned about Hal's behavior, Bowman and Poole enter one of the EVA pods to talk without the computer overhearing them. They both have suspicions about Hal, despite the perfect reliability of the HAL series, but they decide to follow its suggestion to replace the unit. As the astronauts agree to disconnect Hal if it is proven to be wrong, they are unaware that Hal is reading their lips through the pod's window."

Chilling, isn't it?

Gosh, must have missed this one with Obama causing the financial crisis. Kinda wondering about that "fact Check" thingy, mini. Was that fact check dot org, or fact check dot right wing? Just wondering since I could not find any of that on the actual web site. Hmmmm. But, the economic crisis came from the banks selling sub par mortgages that were then rated higher. The fraud perpetuated by the banks and the rating services were at the bottom of this. By the way, the mortgage lenders were directed to not discriminate, which they had been doing, and they then expanded the loans because they could make a ton of money fraudulently selling them as investment grade.

Ya sure Garr iran loves us.. God you are uneducarted..

Did you know that since 1945 every PrOTUS had military experience up until Clinton.. Then Bush came in with Military training and then along came Obama and had none..

Notice how the attack on foreign soil came right after 8 years of a non military POTUS..

Notice how Obama is siding with the enemy?? And turning on our allies..

willies, before we get ahead of ourselves....an article from the NY Times in 1999....1999, that's right...

"""Fannie Mae, the nation's biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits."""

cont...

"But they were the ones who pushed Fannie and Freddie to make a bunch of loans that were imprudent, if you will. They were the ones that pushed the banks to loan to everybody. And now we want to go vilify the banks because it's one target, it's easy to blame them and congress certainly isn't going to blame themselves.

"At the same time, Congress is trying to pressure banks to loosen their lending standards to make more loans. This is exactly the same speech they criticized them for."

"Encouraging" folks to own a home is quite different than "mandates" to banks to provide loans to applicants who might not qualify.

Nov. 1, 2011 "Mayor Michael Bloomberg said this morning that if there is anyone to blame for the mortgage crisis that led the collapse of the financial industry, it's not the "big banks," but Congress.

"Speaking at a business breakfast in midtown featuring Bloomberg and two former New York City mayors, Bloomberg was asked what he thought of the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

"I hear your complaints," Bloomberg said. "Some of them are totally unfounded. It was not the banks that created the mortgage crisis. It was, plain and simple, Congress who forced everybody to go and give mortgages to people who were on the cusp. Now, I'm not saying I'm sure that was terrible policy, because a lot of those people who got homes still have them and they wouldn't have gotten them without that.

More welfare for you Garr.. Tanner and Hughes award the national welfare championship to Hawaii, which offers $60,590 in annual welfare benefits, once you account for the fact that welfare benefits are tax-free to the recipient, compared to work-related wages. That’s the equivalent of $29.13 an hour. Rounding out the top five were D.C. ($50,820 per year and $24.43 an hour), Massachusetts ($50,540 and $24.30), Connecticut ($44,370 and $21.33), and New York ($43,700 and $21.01).
