Thank you for posting this article from last Thursday.

I'm sure she will find her voice once she figures a few things out. At least she didn't invite anyone to date her daughters.

Did you see Scott Brown's daughters? I voted against the guy, but he never made this offer to me.

She is probably not use to your white man speak Kemosabe.

This is so last week, subby. The outrage du Jour is 330,000 votes!! No, they wouldn't have changed the outcome of the election, even by cherry picking their locales, but it is what it is...

I cannot get a screen grab at work but right now there is a news flash at the top of the page on this story about a woman dying after her car goes off a bridge, in a story that FARK links to Ted Kennedy.

I'm certain I know someone who did. They went to my high school, albeit a couple of decades after me, but the place is not that big.

Only in a metaphorical sense when thinking about Scott Brown's Senate career.

I heard she's planning to become a Senator.

He'll never win.

The Boston Herald is all about being non partisan with respect to Liz Warren. They wear it on their sleeve so you can trust them when they report "facts" like this.
 
2012-11-12 02:45:13 PM  
Given that Kennedy is dead, I don't expect to hear a whole lot about his plans for the future.

She's the bestest Senator evah. She's gonna be President in 2016, while clearing up all the Boston traffic, bringing Seattle another NBA team, and uncancelling "Firefly" for a ten-year run.

"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own - nobody. ... You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless - keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."

For me the grand appeal was to put someone in there whom they refused to let come up for confirmation of the newly-created Consumer Affairs. It was a great sense of justice to foist her upon them on a daily basis.

I dunno. Your post kind of sounded like "why do you all like this b*tch again?" like it's a problem or for that matter, does a woman who resembles a real human being bother you in the first place?
So we rustled your jimmies a bit. No big deal.

Because this was the stuff she did for a living long before she got the idea to go into government. She's actually the first politician who's work I was aware of and respected before she became a politician.

She also wrote a few books before that, including this one: Link

To be fair, those were seriously stupid questions. Protecting defense spending, really? What part of her platform gave any indication that she was a fan of a huge military budget? I especially like how the actual video shows only the brief introduction, and none of the Q&A portion which they're so pissy about.

The military-industrial complex is a horrible machine of death that slaughters the innocents and sullies our reputation around the world, unless it's in your state/district in which case even the kumbaya-singingest leftist will emphatically point out that (employer's name here) is a vital cog in the mechanism that protects our nation.

It's mostly based on her help in creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and her hardline rhetoric against the banks and Wall St. who collapsed the world economy, one of the few mainstream voices who still make a fuss about them.

Warren win has Wall Street worried

Executives at Wall Street's biggest banks likely haven't forgotten a suggestion Warren made in September 2011, when the newly created CFPB produced a seven-page report for the 50 state attorneys general investigating improper foreclosure procedures ... said banks dodged more than $20 billion in expenses between 2007 and 2010 by taking shortcuts in servicing troubled home loans.

The report was presented as the banks and the states were engaged in settlement talks, and there was speculation that the financial firms would cough up somewhere between $5 billion and $30 billion to put the issue behind them.

But Warren balked at the $5 billion figure, saying it "would seem too low" considering that "rough estimates suggest the largest servicers may have saved more than $20 billion through under-investment in proper servicing during the crisis."

In the end, banks ended up settling for a whopping $25 billion.

Oh, and don't forget Warren's calls for a breakup of big banks by reinstating a modern version of the Glass-Steagall Act, a Depression-era law that separated investment and commercial banks. That's not winning her any love from the big banks, either.

Republicans hate the shiat out her, that should be your 'go to' thought process next time. You'll safe lots of time in the process too. You're welcome.
