Ok, thanks Frown for that. How weird to think that something that potentially divisive could be "small" whereas this is world news...

How can anyone claim coal is clean? You touch the stuff your hands are filthy, and if you mine it, well, just get your lungs looked at in a few years.

Yeah, we in Ireland don't know what that stands for....

Incidentally, that video: you know where the phrase comes from? "Watchmen on the wall"?

<1000 protesting mostly in the South (don't quote me on that number) versus millions protesting across the nation. Guess which one is more newsworthy.

It was on his list of buzzwords at the debate and is a phrase believed by people who either don't research things or already convinced of the fossil fuel perspective of climate change.

Not really considering the nature of the rise

But I mean this is the way all Republicans have done it gotta maintain appearances

The rise back to the level that they were at before Obama put the cut in place a couple of weeks ago? The rise that nobody is actually going to experience because Obama's order goes into effect next week? I guess you're right.

Still yes

Rates would have been X according to law now they will be higher

Frownland 01-24-2017 06:25 PM

Except rates were never X and things would have been back to normal now. It was a midnight judges move on Obama's part from where I'm sitting. That's not to mention how Obama's order is no longer going to be cut so rates will be X.

elphenor 01-24-2017 06:28 PM

Right they will be higher than X where X is what the rates would have been when the new law was applied

You could also represent it as a Republican blocking an attempt of a Democrat to lower costs on mortgage owners which would mean the Middle Class

It is effectively the same result if Trump announced a $500 a year penalty on homeowners because the gov needs more money

It was clearly a political move to blame a fiscal decrease in the mortgage industry on Trump and spark worries of another 2008.

After giving them $500 first.
