and you’d be way wrong

this is why I mentioned the GI Bill:

Okay, I don't see what this *specifically* has to do with local governments obstructing real solutions to housing though?
Or this bill

it’s a pretty large root cause of housing inequality and it was a federal program

only reason I brought it up is because you asserted that housing issues are very local and have very little to do with federal government

Okay. To clarify, I meant that most of the issues at the root in terms of the supply of housing are local, and thus we need local change for a sustainable future in housing.

What you posted is indeed an example of inequality in a federal program, yeah. I don't dispute that, it is just besides my point here, especially in context of this specific policy that the other dude posted.

Thanks for posting that though, good read. those who deny systemic racism really need to read that... and a lot of other things

Want affordable housing? Pass a bill that keeps corporate America from buying up all the sub 400k houses and renting them out.

I don’t think that policy is worth freaking out about, and I’m in favor of anything that makes an effort to equal the playing field, no matter how small it is

Quote :
" Good credit score? Saved enough for a good down payment on a mortgage?

The WH says screw you buddy!"


a statement like that makes it seem as though all things are equal, and nothing could be further from the truth

I mean sure you can hold that belief, but doing it by credit score isn't very progressive.
I also disagree with that sentiment in general, but we can agree to disagree there.

^^
Yeah. We really need to target the "unproductive elite". All those institutions and companies that really don't do anything but play a middle man or something and make money off of it.
Some of them have some role or the other, some of them are just pieces of shit.

problem is no matter what we do, the corporations have their legal teams to find the loopholes. the citizens supposedly have government officials, but guess who funds the government officials?
Lol.
we must do what we can

I think he'll do it
his gaffe per speech rate might increase

If he does die though, I feel like unless Kamala miraculously changes her image, the Republicans will steamroll 2028. but it is perhaps too early to say that, who knows if any charismatic democrat bros could emerge, and if the GOP could fix themselves up a bit till then if Trump too dies or something
A lot can change quick...

Kamala would be a disastrous president.

I think there might be some on-the-fence voters that would actually weigh Trump vs a potential Kamala presidency.

he definitely deserves more credit than most of the 'generic online crowd' tends to give him

The one liners and couplet attempts just get on my nerves

Hunter Biden is obviously a shady loser. But in an important difference versus the previous administration, he doesn't hold an official office or position of influence. I don't believe in protecting a criminal just because he's related to the President, but let's not act like this this the same as Trump family graft, corruption, and nepotism.

^^Well, did you mean to say "WHAT do folks think about. . ." meaning you are soliciting our thoughts, or did you mean it as written questioning whether certain third party individuals were thinking about the issue at all? Because I legitimately don't know.

I'm being overly dramatic of course, but I know you're capable of better, so I seek to hold you to that standard, as you do me.

Yea i was curious if some of the folks that had discussed Biden's cancelation had also heard about this bill that would turn all the loan holiday time into missed payments and accrued interest. Seems extremely punitive to me.

The Hunter thing is lose-lose even though Biden did everything right. He struck the perfect balance between loving father and President, expressing support while remaining hands-off with the investigation. For all the good it will do him. Democrats will continue not giving a shit about Hunter Biden, and Republicans will continue clamoring for his blood. The closest thing you can find to a positive outcome here is that at least the President didn't do anything to actively contribute to the fantasy that he's rigging the system in his son's favor.

Any thoughts on the I.R.S. whistle-blower, Gary Shapley, testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee?

https://tinyurl.com/tyysj8w7

Quote :
"The I.R.S. official, Gary Shapley, oversaw the agency's role in the investigation of Mr. Biden's taxes and says his criticism of the Justice Department led to him being denied a promotion. He told the House Ways and Means Committee that [U.S. Attorney David C. Weiss] had been rebuffed by top federal prosecutors in Los Angeles and Washington when he had raised the prospect of pursuing charges against the president's son in those jurisdictions.

Mr. Shapley, testifying under what Republicans say are whistle-blower protections, also said that he had witnessed Mr. Weiss saying last year that he would not be the 'deciding official' regarding whether to prosecute [Hunter] Biden, and that Mr. Weiss had been turned down when he sought special counsel status, which would have allowed him greater flexibility in handling the case."
Quote :
"But it remains unclear how much of the difference in the accounts reflects possible factors like miscommunication, clashing substantive judgments among agencies over how best to pursue a prosecution, or personal enmity among officials working on a high-pressure, high-profile case. Investigators like Mr. Shapley whose job it is to uncover evidence often have different perspectives from prosecutors who have to take into account how to treat defendants fairly and present cases to juries."
Quote :
"Mr. Garland, addressing reporters on Friday, forcefully denied Mr. Shapley's claims. Mr. Weiss said in a letter to Congress this month that he had not been constrained in pursuing the investigation. Mr. Weiss said in the letter, dated June 7, that he had been 'granted ultimate authority over this matter, including responsibility for deciding where, when and whether to file charges.'"

Assuming the economy doesn’t collapse over the next year and a half, Biden is going to get re-elected easily I think

^^^ An update regarding this story:

https://tinyurl.com/2p34mbhe

Quote :
"David C. Weiss, the federal prosecutor in Delaware who has led the criminal investigation of Hunter Biden, on Monday rebutted a key element of testimony to Congress by an Internal Revenue Service official who said that Mr. Weiss complained about being blocked from pursuing the case the way he wanted.

In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Mr. Weiss said that he had never asked Justice Department officials to give him special counsel status to pursue the case, contradicting testimony to the House Ways and Means Committee by the I.R.S. official, Gary Shapley, who said Mr. Weiss had sought that status and been turned down.

Mr. Weiss suggested that Mr. Shapley might have misunderstood him during an October 2022 meeting. Mr. Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware, who was appointed to the role under President Donald J. Trump, said in the letter that he had approached a department higher-up about the possibility of requesting status as a special attorney, not as a special counsel...

'To clarify an apparent misperception and to avoid future confusion, I wish to make one point clear: In this case, I have not requested special counsel designation,' Mr. Weiss told Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Instead, Mr. Weiss said he 'had discussions with departmental officials regarding potential appointment' as a special attorney, 'which would have allowed me to file charges in a district outside my own without the partnership of the local U.S. attorney.'

Mr. Weiss added in the letter to Mr. Graham that he had 'never been denied the authority to bring charges in any jurisdiction.'"
Quote :
"Mr. Weiss, who has described the Hunter Biden investigation as 'ongoing,' did not say if he had followed through and requested to be appointed special attorney to the career official who served as his contact at Justice Department headquarters.

Nor did he explicitly address a key assertion made by Mr. Shapley: that Biden-appointed U.S. attorneys in California and Washington had discouraged Mr. Weiss from prosecuting Hunter Biden on felony tax charges stemming from a period when the president's son was earning millions working with foreign-controlled businesses and investors."


Meanwhile, Republicans' other whistle-blower who had gone missing, Gal Luft, has been charged by the SDNY for acting as an unregistered foreign agent, trafficking in arms, violating U.S. sanctions against Iran and making false statements to federal agents; an Israeli spy, he apparently went missing after being arrested in Cyprus in February for trafficking arms to Libya and China.
