    ....on radio station 96.9 wxtk and I asked him why he supports the wall street reform bill and he answered with this (paraphrased from memory)

    I may have got some of that wrong and I know i left some of his talking points on it out but that is basically what he had to say.

    In my opinion he has good motives but I still find his judgment in supporting this bill to be bad.

    Did you ask him if his hot daughter was still available?

    I would fault him for popping wood.

    Fannie Freddie and FHA control 100% of the residential mortgage market, what was that about "too big to fail"?

    How's this:

    Repeal CRA

    FDIC insurance. If a bank chooses to be FDIC insured, then the government can regulate the fuck out of them. If they're not regulated, they can;t be bailed out and the government has to mind it's own business.

    We prospered as a country long before the Fed and FDIC came along.

    Great job in speaking with Senator Brown directly!!

    Scott Brown is doing a great job so far. Yes, this Democrat originated bill has some faults, but Brown utilized his spoiler status to make it a "better bad bill" as it were - and frankly, I trust his judgement in doing so far more than say, Olympia Snow or the like.

    After November, Brown will not be in the position to do so, as Republicans will have the advantage of much improved legislative numbers.

    I am certain Brown will be more than happy to be a part of those numbers...

    Why do you people want Republicans to win in November. Not only did they cause all this disaster, but they haven't promoted a singe new idea on how to fix their mess. I think you guys are crazy.

    I thought Obama already fixed it with a $4 trillion spending deficit, continued wars in Iraq and Afgahnistan, and by destroying the offshore oil exploration business?

    Anyway:

    "We prospered as a country long before the Fed and FDIC came along."

    Some depositors would gamble on the honesty and integrity of the owners of the bank. Not surprisingly, many would just hide their money in coffee cans in the back yard. Not a big plus for the banking system
