    Two influential US senators got "VIP" loans from a leading subprime mortgage lender that saved them tens of thousands of dollars, it was reported last night.

    The Democratic pols, Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Kent Conrad of North Dakota, both received the highly favorable loans under the designation "Friend of Angelo," a reference to embattled Countrywide head Angelo Mozilo, Condé Nast Portfolio reported.

    Dodd is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, while Conrad is chairman of the Budget Committee and a member of the Finance Committee. The two senators refinanced properties through the VIP program in 2003 and 2004, the report said.

    How these guys get away with this stuff is incredible.

    You might want to edit your post title. Countrytime is a lemonade mix, Countrywide is the loan organization.

    There website is still up and operational, so I don't think they locked up the doors completely. A bunch of people I know worked there over the last 5+ years. These guys got my bestfriend a job there about 2 years ago. Anyhow, my bf quit after 5-6 months on the job, cuz he couldn't screw people the way everyone else there was. My buds honest & ethical, and the job wasn't. My buds take is that there are incredibly stupid people out there who don't know basic economics, or simply math, and that the sub-prime industry is full of snakes who's only care is lining their pockets at any cost. Really tragic all around.

    Good one!

    What is shocking about this is how little the shock is created about this. Were it not for your thread, I might never have heard of this. There's so many other pressing matters being covered on the news tonight...like the shocking death of Tim Russert and the news that gas prices are high...not to mention that Obama's a liberal and McCain is not!:rofl:

    Dodd is the head of the bamking committee, which oversees the mortgage committee, he shoudl resign his chairmanship. Being a dem the MSM won't demand it.

    If Dodd and Conrad were pubbies the MSM would be demanding a special prosecuter and that thye resign from the Senate, since they are libs this story will be gone in 24 hrs...unless RW bloggers keep it alive.

    I've been trying to say that for 2 weeks! It doesn't matter which "side" you're on, they're all crooks and can't be trusted.

    So when we see something like this happening, I think it's pretty easy for us to assume that this country is being run by corporate America.

    It's not necessarily being run by corporate america. It's being run by a bunch of crooked, silver spoon, millionaire politicians. The people vote in their representatives to both speak for, and protect them. The pols look to get elected for pub, power, and personal gain. A corp can only be as evil as the pols permit them to be. A lobbyist can only scheme as effectively as a politician allows them to. Ultimately it comes down to the people in charge. If the pols simply followed the Constitution, and ran government as was originally intended, we'd be fine right now. They don't, and unfortunately, the tax payer bears the burden.

    I was watching a news report on this today. The press initially contacted Dodd's office for comment and were told that they didn't know where he was. So then they send a helicopter over to his house and sure as *****, there he is in his backyard, looking up at the copter hovering over his house. LMAO

    The old time Mafia should be running this country, they would take our Taxes then they would keep us safe from attack, execute pedophiles, treat our women with respect, they would destroy the California Gang Bangers in one day, they would relocate the illegal aliens back across the border, they wouldn't waterboard muslim terrorists in Gitmo they would shoot them, you would be able to go window shopping at 2AM again, you would be able to sleep in Central Park with your whole family on a hot summer night again, you could remove the bars from your downstairs windows, you could leave your keys in your car all night, mothers could leave their baby strollers on the sidewalk while they shopped, AGAIN, Cops could go through a twenty five year career without taking their gun out of it's holster, AGAIN, if a scumsucker raped your wife or daughter
    (or your brother) they would be killed the next day,
    GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES MAFIA
