    Do you support the abolition of certain federal agencies, including HUD? If you do, that would be an extremist viewpoint. Why should I argue with an extremist?

    I don't support the "abolition" of much of anything. All I said was fact. No one who's held that position has ever been qualified, nor had experience. Most people don't even really know what HUD does.

    While were talking about Government Programs... however, I wanna point out that Obama's "HAMP" & ""HOPE For Homeowners"" was absolute garbage, and just put more homeowners in foreclosure.

    Why do you protect Trump so much? Is he your relative or something?

    There is nothing wrong with criticizing the man who is about to be President for the next four, possibly eight years. Republicans certainly had no problem with it for the Obama years.

    Something about talking about his sex life... just seems creepy. It's like thinking about your parents, or the Obama's.

    Anything and everything is game when you are President. Did you know Republicans have criticized Obama for putting mustard on his burger? So golden showers don't seem so silly.

    @HardlinesFour I think you have reduced HUD's responsibilities far furthers than they actually are.

    The loan programs certainly make a difference on the housing needs but we need to take a closer look at the enforce fair housing laws piece.
    They have gone after real estate brokers who red line districts (cut minorities out of certain areas or only sell to them in certain areas), they go after scammers who do fake foreclosures, renters who discriminate who renters with children, and landlords who discriminate against people with disabilities.
    Enforcement

    Here is the thing, as a landlord Trump has run afoul of these guys on a number of occasions and lost.
    I suspect he will be more than happy to gut them like a fish.
    What better way then to put a total incompetent in charge?

    Most of that, though is pursued by the Department of Justice & the AG's office. They have a very limited role in most of those matters. Like I said, most of their work involves home loans.

    Beyond that... many realtors and real estate brokers would be dumb to discriminate against anyone, for the sake of their commission checks.


    And I'd once again remind you, that not a single person holding that position has had any prior experience, whatsoever. It's kinda a running joke.

    Okay we are well and truly fucked.

    I had really hoped that Trumps anti-vaxer crap was just bullshit for the campaign but now he has put an anti-vaxer in charge of the program so we will be seeing all the work of Linus Pauling go straight down the tubes.

    So fuck this.

    It's one thing when it's civil rights and global weather change, it's something else when we are talking about babies dying.
