I know you check my posts because you keep "borrowing" the language I use to bolster your lame and silly attempts at discourse with statements of substance authored by me. You are obviously incapable of creating anything original. And, as for your bet, I referred you to a post of mine concerning climate change that you responded to with lies, copy and paste, plagiarized statements of mine, and mindless blather. You lost your bet. I knew you would shirk and shrink away from doing the honorable thing -- paying off your lost bet -- and try to smokescreen your way out of paying up by repeating the same lame tiresome insults you always weakly toss my way.
The regular posters here know what you have done. It's no surprise that a fount of weak blather like you, who is nothing but an empty shill for your plutocrat masters, would renege on a bet. Once again, you only underscore for all to see how lacking in character and integrity you are by welching on a ten dollar bet. A man's word is his bond, and your word isn't worth s___. You are not just a shrill empty repug shill, you are a liar, a coward, and a classic example of a repugnant Republican stooge.
How many jobs were lost as banks needed to cut cost due to the law suits. This proves Obama and Holder have no clue regarding business.
You information is correct but like a true politician you skipped a bit. George Bush did encourage home ownership but that desire alone did not create the crisis. The crisis started when senators like Barney Frank wanted that "home ownership" to include people that otherwise would not be approved. I believe Barney made a statement about home ownership has been for white middle class America and this needs to change. A policy was put into place that stated that banks loan portfolios needed to be more representative of the communities they served. This meant if your community was 15% black then 15% of your loans should be to blacks. The states jumped in and threatened to reject merger applications unless they complied to the new loan policy. Barney Frank was a huge proponent of sub prime lending. He gave his famous speech that the sub prime market was not a "bubble".
Then Allan Greenspan did 2 things. First he proposed to cap FNMA and Freddie Mac as they controlled too much of the nations mortgages. Congress squashed that idea with the assistant of FNMA lobbyist. Then contrary to this statement Greenspan said that banks need to be more creative in their loans to make loans more affordable to a wider audience "sub-prime". He was referring to interest only fixed to adjustable loans.
Now you know how the mortgage crisis came to be. It is much much more than a desire to increase home ownership.
Good question. I have noticed that as well. I will also see "beta" very different depending on which site you are looking at. My best guess on the book value is either a difference in time period used to calculate or some analyst will make adjustments for items like good will. You would think all of the Harvard and Yale grads would come to the same conclusion but they don't.
key in Amazon ticker into yahoo quote. then go to "basic chart". Once there hit "max" for time period. You will see what I am talking about. Keep in mind that the chart shows "split adjusted" prices.
Back around 1999 to 2000 amazon was the hottest stock to buy. It went from around $100 to close to $600 in less than 18 months. When it hit $400 we thought it was a joke. Then it hit $450, $500...all the way to $600 and then the tech bubble burst. The amazing thing about it and why I brought it up is that Amazon was losing money every quarter during the time.
My bet was that you next post would be an insult and no real substance. My post was on 9/18 at 8:08 pm est. Your next post was just as I had predicted....an insult. Then at 10:35 pm you start jabbering about some post in the past you might have made about climate change. You are so stupid you can't even read what the bet was for. Too busy posting mindless insults I guess.
Let's see if you can make it one day without calling someone names. And by the way I purposely copied your hideous insults so you could see how stupid it is to read those. You are too stupid to know I was mocking you.
I checked your post and I do not see anything other than insults. Nice try. My guess is you think insulting is substance. You just do not get it do you. You need to make a post of some current topic and add a perspective up for debate without any insults.
The gutless lying coward troll aka stopspending aka stopslobbering aka the Empty Shill lost a bet, and now he renigs on payment. No character, no integrity, no guts. A typical Republican shill.
Typical right-wing double talk. Whining if we don't go in....whining if we do go in. Pick a side. Or at least grow a spine.
While that isn't true, it wouldn't matter if it were. The temperatures at the poles are now so much higher than normal that the increased melting of the caps will continue even at static or reduced temperatures. I see more attempts at insults too. What did you do in the aviation industry? Hand out pillows?
Guess the Republicans aren't the ones that like to shut the government down. That's what Democrats do.
The scientific fact you idiot is that temperatures are lower the last couple of years. Take your science and apply it to a snow shovel and see how far you get. But then again, you don't have to dig out to go to work, BECAUSE YOU'RE A WELFARE RAT!
LOL! You do realize that it is only the end of winter and beginning of spring in the Southern Hemisphere, right? Or did you not realize that the seasons are reversed between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres? If you are an example of what is coming out of our educational system today, then we really are in big, big trouble.
Well said with your post. Even Oct 18 calls looks very good. We should see your $22.50 by March of 2015. If the appeal board throw out the U.S gov law suit against BofA then that would be a couple of dollars jump in stock price.
