This administration redefined the term "unemployment rate" which no longer includes those unemployed "long term", that is, when the unemployment benefits expire (usually after about 6 months). By manipulating what is called "unemployed" to now mean "unemployed less than 6 months", this adminstration makes itself "look good" while the long term unemployed, unable to get a job, go on welfare. This administration took a page from Bill Clinton's playbook, where he defines "sex with Monica Lewinsky" to mean what ever was convienent for his position. (Doggy style). So, "I did not have sex with Monica" means he had sex doggy style, and that does not count if you are Bill Clinton. In the same way, Obama says you are not unemployed if you are unemployed over 6 months and one day. They are both lies.
You delude yourself on the premium you place on the preferred shares. On one hand you post 2 paragraphs of chicken little "out of money in 2017" theory, then you post that you own preferred, with no common sense link between the two. If there is money for the preferred, there is money for the common. There is no logical senario where the preferreds get paid, and the commons are left out.
Like it or not, that is what happened. In case you did not know it, the UST confiscated more than 50 billion dollars from fannie shareholders over and above the bailout. 50 billion is a pretty nice bailout. It would solve any of my financial woes, how about yours?
You talk out both sides of your mouth. On one hand you have admitted to being long the preferred, but bash the commons. Is this your bi polar?
So "going long" always mean a number 2 cleanup? What does it mean when he "goes short"? Is that also not a number 2 cleanup also?
Great. Since you make so much money, why not pay off the national debt, and get it over with? Oh, wait...that was all bragging and no truth.
No. No matter how you spin it, Hitlary can not even secure her own emails, and her failure as secretary of state does not qualify her to be president.
Yea, you have been able to predict yesterdays news with some accuracy. Now, try working on tommorrows news predictions, and less "I told you so's" after you say nothing. Or, just give up bragging and work on your self esteem problem.
Lower downpayments are the prime reason for fannie and Freddie, and will help them. The lower interest rates, also, will mean more people will be able to afford a home, and refinancing will be better also. How can you continue to spin a positive like this into your newest doom and gloom?
This has to be good news. We already know Lambreth is a fannie hater, so any move away from him is good.
Hank Paulson's endorsement is like Bernie Madoff's endorsement. Its her kiss of death.
That is too bad,Burpguy. Most of the rest of us are successful enough we dont need to brag. Its really too bad for you. Sorry to hear about your self esteem problem. Now, is there anything else you would like to brag about, also?
There have been. The shareholders sued and won. Shareholders of 2008 won about 180 million. Tim Pagliara and other lawsuits such as Fairholme also represent shareholders. The other "class action" lawsuits will likely occur after the NWS is declaired void.
Hitlary is a chameleon. She changes color with the people she is with. Its her disguise to keep from being captured by Eagles. She has worn disguises so long, she doesn't even know who/what she is.
It looks like the same thing is happening on the DJII. Fearful newbies get out, and pro's scoop up their shares for nothing.
Yea..I can see the headlines now: "First Lady" caught on porn site again". Maybe Billary could sign in and hack Hitlary's account also, and be true to his party by "blaming others" for his troubles. Hitlarys emails are easy to hack, as everyone knows.
By releasing fannie. Otherwise, we are headed downhill and people vote with their pocketbooks. However, Odumba may be too greedy and too dumb to do that. Its almost worth it for me as a fannie investor to just wait till trump gets in to release fannie..and save our country from Hitlary. She has done quite enough damage as Secretary of State, already.
