In a word: DUH!

In Obama-land, a disincentive to work is a feature, not a design flaw. Everything this administration does creates a disincentive to work. Dependent people are so much easier to control.

    Time for a new pool to bet (not that I do) on when the U.S. crosses the finish line on this mad dash to self-annihilation.

    In the end analysis, and my personal experience, you won't believe how disappointed purveyors of Cloward-Piven will be when they finally figure out that scenario pans out better on a white board than real life America.

    Tell me I'm wrong here but 47%'ers are *keenly* aware of their 'rights', DEMAND attentive service and see absolutely no reason they shouldn't have every perk & privy a well-dressed 60+ hours a week professional does.

    They're adamant, well versed and ever pursuant in getting everything that's coming to them. Creating an underbelly of dependency might cut it in former Soviet bloc nations. But if Soros wants to see a real revolt, just TRY cutting off the Earned Income Credit?

    Hey MW,

    I am sure this will not come as a surprise to you, but I wanted your take on it:

    Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bought billions of dollars of mortgages last year despite red flags about the nature of their appraisals, investigators disclosed Thursday.

    Is this not the same CBO that was on duty when they were scoring different versions of Ocare during it's inception???? And is this not the same CBO that went to visit OBozo – personally – at the White House during the run up to the vote on Ocare? He knew all this doom and gloom to begin with and now tells us what a POS it is going to be for all of us???? REALLY?????

    My shock and outrage meter exploded like a nuclear bomb. I wonder if I will ever again be shocked or surprised by anything that the US Government does. But at least there's not even a smidgen of corruption in the US Government.

    "• Fannie Mae bought 56,000 home loans worth $13 billion despite warnings the files potentially did not conforming to its appraisal requirements."

    Ah… RIGHT back to business as USUAL..? In spite of their having hijacked the phrase "Socialize Risk ( and privatize PROFITS! )" Occupy didn't coin it. Intrepid ( and often threatened! ) housing bubble bloggers did!

    It was at the *core* of our entire thesis. Which included btw, included the installation of a 'messiah' although none of us knew and much of our documentation pre-dated Teh Wun.

    Ever hear of "negative equity"? It's when you have a margin call triggered in your stock account and even though it's been bleed penniless, You.Still.Owe.MONEY. That's precisely where Phony & Fraudie have led us. Recall Franklin Raines, was still given "performance bonuses" while fiddling.

    Good to see The Times reporting it!
