i'm talkin' about lift-off, launch, JPL....now get back to your post on the bridge....with your crew and just keep the heading UP....that is an order
the government is seeking a stay of the fairholme, perry lawsuit, and in the process, a move that could be interpreted as some sort of capitulation on one and/or another ground for their (perry, fairholme and one moe plaintiff) claims....do not quote me
but if we see an upturn north, there might be some merit that the govenment is now going to seek to minimize damages (that is, not even argue, or go in with a weak defense, that they might lose on the merits)
from what i read back in april, fannie and freddie's profits have been high for the first part of the year because interest rates were low. the article i read said that fan and fred make a higher net profit over a period of time when interest is low. but it is not so much because there is a lot of house/buldings being sold, but because there are so many more re-fi ' s. i can't tell you a lie if you don't ask me why
you have to admit jealousy could be playing a big role in our elected offcials and other washington bigwigs...
do you think these vultures would be so ravenoustly intent on destroying fannie and freddie if there was some significant congressional (and other BIG leaders in the press and wall street) ownership of fannie and freddie?
they'd be releasin' them and having a grand ole party when the stocks were priced like in the old days for $40-$80 per share!
but they (washington, media, businessmen) can't stand to see the approximately 6500 current total shareholders standing to make good money on these stocks, SO THEY TRY TO DESTROY WHAT THEY CAN'T HAVE FOR THEMSELVES....period. case closed
is that how we're supposed to prepare ourselves? just accept it? and deal with it? is heavy drinking an acceptable way to deal with it?
i mean archie bunker was honest in his discrimination. i think it is better to always be gaurded when it comes to relations with others not of our own "skin, or nationality." And that means no matter what our skin or nationality is. If you're dark-skinned, you distrust the light-skinned. and on and on it goes....that's ok, but discrimination can be done without harm to anyone. I think Archie Bunker was like that. They need to make a good Archie Bunker type movie. Political correctness has all the American caucasians afraid they're gonna hurt someone's feelings all the time. and it seems to be, says archie, that those minoirity types take advantage of the white indecisiveness about the whole matter. poor white folk. OFF-TOPIC YES
SORRY i got on this rant...i just read the story of the Nigerian TSA worker arrested in Los Angeles
and I cannot believe they would have a young Nigerian working for the TSA. He's naturaized but came here when he was 22 years old. Anway, that story made me think about racial discrimination.
Last thought....you might be surprised with the number of TSA employees that are arrested for crimes every month. google it...TSA arrests, or similar
POSTED SEPTEMBER 11, 2013
According to multiple sources, including Inside Mortgage Finance, Hensarling's bill, which called for the wind-down of the GSEs, is no longer on the agenda for the foreseeable future. This is great news for taxpaying shareholders and brings us one step closer to a practical, sustainable, and safe solution. This also means that the nation is one step closer to protecting American taxpayers, as well as the National Housing Trust Fund, since the key stakeholders involved in GSE reform are now being heard. Hensarlings bill would also have other, negative, sweeping impacts on American families, businesses, and homeowners, such as eliminating the 30-year fixed rate mortgage, increasing interest rates, and providing full control to big banks, which might later lobby for the ability to lend customer's deposits to other customers with much higher interest rates. In addition, the bill would increase risk to taxpayers by placing the primary responsibility of lending, securitizing, and backstopping mortgages in the hands of the too-big-to-fail (TBTF) banks.
Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, has hinted at prospects for a bill that would maintain Fannie and Freddie's role in America's future housing finance system in an interview with Nevada Public Radio last month. As Corker/Warner loses traction in the Senate, and new bills present more pragmatic solutions to a safe, stable, housing finance system, we should begin to see a slow but healthy entrance of private capital to work alongside Fannie and Freddie -- as many, such as Bank of America, have stated is the most desirable structure. As Fannie and Freddie quickly approach zero debt owed to taxpayers -- it does appear likely that a transition from conservatorship back to a pre-crisis, pre-subprime, #GSEReform is approaching. This is what Barack Obama alluded to in his talk with Zillow's CEO last month, which appears to align nicely with all of the key stakeholders.
