At a Town Hall event in Los Angeles, Dem congresswoman Maxine Waters said the president should use the bully pulpit to, "bring the gangstas in, put them around the table and let them know that if they don't come up with loan modifications and keep people in their homes, that they've worked so hard for, we're gonna tax them out of business"

Like Zero, she is apparently unaware of the separation of powers and exactly what happened last November.
It’s gonna get worse..CBC members are elected for life...they can say/do anything....and as the GOP takes control in DC next year...they will do ever worse stuff to get attention try and stay relevant...until these minority districts are redrawn...and we can vote them out..
Maxine should know all about “gangstas.”
Incidentally, her hubby is involved in banking and she throws business his way through government help for minority bankers.
That should help get people back to work, Maxine. You so smart, just like yo boss Barack
Everytime Maxine Waters opens her idiot mouth we go up three pecentage points, let her bloviate it can only help us!!!!
Perhaps they should start with her “banker” husband? She got Barney Frank to give her husband’s failing bank special consideration.
Is this going to be before or after we take over the oil companies? Heck, let’s just let the govt. take over everything.
I wish there was a way to get rid of “gangsta” politicians who come from districts where 99% of voters are braindead.
Is she going to tax the banks out of business before or after she socializes the oil companies?
"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
IBD had a great article today on Mad Max and the housing collapse, and her role in it,
complete with before and after quotes.
Somebody buy Maxine a one-way ticket to North Korea. She’ll love it there.
Great minds....... only mine is a bit slower
That’s true..they damage their own cause....a few days ago, there were several big articles about how the CBC wants Obama to do more for blacks and the inner cities.....his key constituency is unhappy..then, the next day, that congressman says that the GOP wants all blacks to be lynchwed..hang from trees....basically..that gives the GOP cover to tell them all to go and pound sand..
It worked for Hitler, might work for Maxine as well.
Take a look around......empty buildings, large and small, everywhere!
Now, let's get rid of the banks, eh? You....are...a....moron and the reason our state is in the toilet!
Waters' Academy award-worthy acting job.
"Pay me, I'm a victim."
QUESTION Do her working class constituents know Maxine Waters used their tax dollars to help her and her husband's investment in OneUnited Bank? Her working class constituents should know that their tax dollars were used to finance a luxurious lifestyle for OneUnited bank chairman and CEO Kevin Cohee, including a Porsche and a mansion on the exclusive Pacific Coast Highway.
Cohee's high-flying perks came despite his having been charged in 2007 with felonies after his arrest on suspicion of possessing cocaine, crack cocaine and concentrated cannabis, according to the Los LA County DA's office. The case was dismissed the next year after Cohee completed a drug diversion program.
Cohee was also arrested in 2007 after a woman filed a complaint alleging that Cohee had forcibly sodomized her, according to public records. Prosecutors did not pursue the assault charge.
OneUnited Bank Chairman and CEO, Kevin Cohee
JD, Harvard Law School
Board Member, Boston Bank Of Commerce
Formerly with Salomon Bros, Inc.
I hear that, these days, Cohee has the affirmative action office of Harvard Law School on speed-dial.
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL)
Pass a constitutional amendment to require congressional districts to be geographically rectangular,
that would fix her and many others in “safe” districts that were gerrymandered in order to assure a “black seat” in Congress.
Give blacks free houses or we will use the government to destroy your businesses. How is this not prosecutable under extortion and quite a few other laws?
“The actual obtainment of money or property is not required to commit the offense. Making a threat of violence which refers to a requirement of a payment of money or property to halt future violence is sufficient to commit the offense. Exaction refers not only to extortion or the unlawful demanding and obtaining of something through force, but additionally, in its formal definition, means the infliction of something such as pain and suffering or making somebody endure something unpleasant.” (from wikipedia: Extortion)
It seems to me that she can be prosecuted even before any tit-for-tat happens, and even though the consequences she is threatening are not physically violent or criminal in nature, since “taxing to death” certainly qualifies as inflicting pain and suffering.
I take it she's too fevered to realize the implications of what she said - about all taxes.
The source link is misleading. It does not go to Breitbart.tv, but rather back to the same blog link in the excerpt.
And the winner of best costume at the Pimps and Ho’s Ball is......!
I wish someone in Congress would actually have the balls to ask them if this is what they want.
“The power to tax, is the power to destroy.”
Welcome to Fascism, folks.
Free houses, free big screens, free Escalades for ev’body, or you can wave goodbye!! We’s in charge!!!
Did her ethics investigation “go away”?
Sorry about that, grabbed the wrong link. Here’s the correct one, if the admins will edit it in.
I’d edit it myself, if I could.
...Wonder how many legit businesses were started with money made by former drug dealers? Criminal to the core...
Whatever happened to Maxine’s ethics trial for getting a bailout of her hubbies bank?
Why has this woman not been censured, prosecuted, thrown in jail for her ethics violations. The Ethics Committee of the House has done nothing, or am I wrong, other than charge her? This woman (can’t call her a lady) must have been given special rights, even Rangel couldn’t wrangle.
Frank- Dodd is already taxing the little people on debt cards and other things such as money orders.
If the CBC were actually in charge of Congress, the U.S. would become a mirror image of Zimbabwe within a decade.
Thankfully, the CBC will never have real power in this country.
before or after she “socializes” the oil companies?
She makes black people as a whole look like ignorant parasitic scofflaws. And apparently, that’s fine with them.
Yeah, I figured you might have done something like that, I didn’t have you pegged as a blog spammer. Hopefully the mods can fix it.
Damn idiot doesn’t appear to realize that she’s one of the people who WROTE the rules with which the banks are scrupulously complying, including the rule that the payment must be received in the month in which it is due, so a December 31 payment for a January 1 due date cannot be accepted.
Water’s is an ignorant, stupid, racist, and pathetic piece of human debris. Can you imagine the people who vote her to office year after year? What must they be like and what could they be thinking? It is a shame that an entire race of people can only find the likes of Waters, Jackson and Sharpton to represent them. Very very sad.
Ping for later.
This woman is storing & hoarding daylight between her ears.
Her lovely President Jimmah Carter put the banks into this mess with the Community Reinvestment Act, starting in 1977.
Talk about fraudulent advertising!!!
Demanding home loans for people who didn’t qualify to buy a T-SHIRT on time payments put all the banks into trouble from the first jump.
NINJA loans- No Income- No Job or Assets—were the norm. Carter demanded that the banks recognise WELFARE & FOOD STAMPS as INCOME!!!!
TARP cleaned up some of the worst loans which applied to vacant houses, but Waters is wrong to blame the banks for this mess.
Democrats are the culprits....no one else.
Janet Reno—Bill Clinton—& Janet Reno put the program on steroids in the early 90’s.
Fannie & Freddie were created in the late 70’s under Carter as a fail safe place to put the thousands of loans that would never properly be paid back to the banks.
Waters is a disgusting individual who has buffaloed Watts residents over & over again to vote for her. She needs to retire, as gracefully as she can muster, sooner rather than later.
She looks like OPRAH’s couble for the Road Shows.
She looks like OPRAH’s double for the Road Shows.
