WOW. I googled a lot of it, you know me, i have to research it. And it is true. McCain did co-sponsor a bill to hault Freddie's Fanny -lol. And, it is also true that Obama's advisors have since stepped down from these only after incurring major debt of course. And, all the while the SEC passed a law expanding the debt ratio and amount these major banks could take on. Interesting that politicians that claim they created these laws to help poor people get into homes, only allowed their "friends" in the bank/mortgage biz to become richer!! Exploit the poor b/c they are too uneducated to see through it all, they are still thinking of those politicians as their saviors for "helping" them. Well, what help are all these foreclosures now? (sorry it's so long!)

Okay, I haven't watched this video YET, but I will. I just read the comment from Jamie and now I have to watch it..later.
But, I wanted to let you know that for some reason when I am in my google reader, the two top posts do not show up on your page when I click the link to comment. When I go to your page, this is the first comment to show up. AND the follow me option does not show up on this page! Weird huh? So that's why no comments are showing up for me on the other posts!
