There is nothing quite as sweet as the Friday before a three day weekend. I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend and the Friday edition of The Morning Roar! Auto Industry Juicing Sales With Subprime Auto Loans Remember the loose lending standards that led up to the collapse of the housing market in 2008? After the crash, pundits cast blame on the bankers, politicians, and the Federal Reserve. The lending environment leading up to the housing collapse was downright insane.

Defending Mitch McConnell For many good reasons, libertarians and conservatives have been critical of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on issues ranging from his neoconservative foreign policy to his backing of the drug war.
