    This true, sad but true…

    1995 the Clinton era, Rubin rewrites the rules to foster loans in minority communites;
    diversity score determines whether yourfirm can grow or not!;
    reserves for FNMA and FHLMC are lowered to 2.5% instead of 105 (like banks);
    etc. etc.
    FNMA hires a six to one ratio of Old Boy Dems, and starts on a $120 ,000,000 lobby spree!
    Very sad…
