HousingPANIC Stupid Question of the Day


Now that Obama has the US presidency wrapped up, what should the Dems do with Pelosi and Reid in 2009:

A) Toss 'em, and elect new competent and uncorrupted leaders who might know their heads from their asses (if any of those exist in the Democratic party)

B) Keep them in charge and see if they can improve on their shameful all-time-low approval ratings, while driving the country even further into the ground

Seriously, Obama already has one hell of a mess on his hands in 2009. But with the likes of Reid and Pelosi stinking up the joint, they'll be doing him no favors.

I hope to see the Dems elect new House and Senate leadership, but I'm doubtful this corrupt and incompetent party will do the right thing. Bush was the Worst President Ever, but I think Pelosi and Reid were the Worst Congressional Leaders Ever. And look where that got us - one hell of a mess.

It's hard to find an honest or unbeholden legislator anymore. Pelosi and Reid are failures at congressional leadership and need to be replaced.

Our only salvation is for much shorter election cycles for presidential elections, an end to the electoral college, multiple party participation instead of the duopoly of the Dems-Reps, a auditable paper trail for all elections, and a selection on every elective office ballot reading "NONE OF THE ABOVE".

The biggest problem in all of human history, and the biggest problem with Jimmy Carter and the biggest problem with George W. Bush is ABSOLUTE POWER.

Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Carter enjoyed Democrat control of executive, Senate and House. So did G W Bush.

If Obama or Clinton win, we will once again have absolute power. You will get more of the same.

The 1990s prospered in relative peace with a Democrat President and Republican Legislature.

Obama may have the Democratic primary wrapped up but no way does he have the general. Blacks are only what, 12% of the population? In order to win the presidency in 2008, you have to win most of the south and you have to win most Hispanics who will rule Florida, California and Texas. Rule in terms of being able to change sides. They are the decision maker. Whomever wins Florida, California and Texas will already have nearly 1/2 the Electoral votes to win the presidency.

Now, I know we shouldn't generalize but if you haven't been to Mexico or watched Mexican politics and humor, they are some of the most racist people against blacks.

Look at Mexican comedy, Mexican Politics, look at the street gang fighting, look in the prisons. Mexicans hate blacks. They will support a good white guy over a black any day.

That's just the uncomfortable truth.

Not to mention, the Southern Nascar whites are not going to vote for Obama in the same way that the guilty white liberal Oprah northeasterners will.

I think it's McCains to lose. And he's capable of losing it. He has foot and he has mouth and he's shown a great ability in using it.

Frank@Scottsdale-Sucks.com said...

Why would Obama get rid of Reid and Pelosi? They're exactly the same as Obama on policy.

He'll keep them around because they're on the same team.

Anyone who believes otherwise has been fooled and deserves to wear a big "SHEEPLE" sign on their foreheads.

Let's say Obama has it in the bag. What's he gonna do about Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, illegal torture, the dismal view the world has of the US these days, the housing collapse, imminent depression, failing dollar? If he can even solve a handful of those things and avoid a complete disaster then he'll be a great hero.

The Congress is worthless because we are no longer a nation of laws. On a grand scale the congress passes legislation to retroactively protect illegal wire taps. On a smaller scale I can add my 2 cents.

A guy I know has a friend that is a non-Mexican but still illegal. He came with his family to the US in 2000 on a visitor visa but just stayed anyway and got a job that paid cash. Meanwhile his 3 kids started school and their plan was to wait until his wife's kid from her 1st marriage (a US citizen by birth) reached age 21 to file for his mom. He turned 21 in Dec 07 and they filed for residence.

In their defense they did not take any welfare or social programs except going to the hospital 2 times for emergencies.

Anyway, last week both the guy and his wife got permits to legally work in the US. With this ID they can get social security cards. In April they have an interview with immigration to get their legal resident cards (green card).

To top that off one of the kids is graduating from high school and all of the state universities in Texas are giving the kid a resident rate of tuition and awarding financial aid from public funds.


I know for a fact they were reported to ICE at least 2 times in 5 years. Oh, to top that off the guy's sister was also living with them (she was illegal as well)...and got caught in a sting, was detained 2 weeks, and deported to South America. Before she was deported she told the immigration officals where they were living and how many people were in their household. Apparently, some guy from immigration came to their apartment 2 years ago, showed them a mug shot of the deported woman and asked if they had seen her, and just left never to come back when they said no. I guess they just did not want her to come back but the rest of them that were already here.....ICE did not give a **** about.

My biggest problem with this is WHY THE **** the man (not the father of the 21 yr old citizen) is getting legalized so fast and the university thing. The mom getting legal status is reasonable but still they should all have been told to go back home and re-enter the US after 5-10 years as a penalty for breaking the law the first time.

I had no clue anchor babies got people TOTAL AMNESTY and exemption from all law in a matter of 6-8 weeks.

Why even have a congress when this type of thing is going on each day? It would be more honest to go Mad Max.

Bernanke, Greenspan at Fault as U.S. Faces Slump, Stiglitz Says

By Mark Barton and Ben Sills

Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel-prize winning economist, said successive Federal Reserve chairmen have left the U.S. economy facing a ``very significant'' slowdown.

Current Fed chief Ben S. Bernanke was too slow to cut interest rates as the U.S. real-estate market deteriorated, while his predecessor, Alan Greenspan, ``actively looked the other way'' as the housing market inflated, Stiglitz said in a Bloomberg Television interview today in London.

Obama is more corrupt than any of them. So nothing new here. He's involved in real-estate scam. He's used Senate election to sell books and promote his brand Obama. He'll corrupt the system even more. I am expecting more of the same and worse if he gets the nomination. Its unlikely he'll be elected president. But byt some odd chance he gets elected, he'll take country into the ground and fast with his lack of experience and penchant to sell books and promote brand Obama.

Obama wants to give judges the power to re-write mortgage contracts. So if you owe 300K at 7%, the judge can re-write it down to 200K at 6% if he sees fit.

Can you say 20% interest rates if this ever happened?

Obama also wants to put mortgage brokers in jail for up to 35 yrs if they make mortgages to people that they can't afford. Good luck getting anyone to write a mortgage to anyone making less than a high 6 figure salary if that law is ever passed.

The worst president ever was FDR who brought socialism to america, confiscated people's gold, and prolonged the great depression.

Wilson was a cluster and got us the
16th amendment, an income tax, and the Criminal Reserve.

Lincoln ended federalism and the right to secede which made the above possible.

So maybe Bush is the 4th worst president ever.

Ditto for the current congress. 4th worst.

I have a feeling there will be plenty of sentiment to "throw the bums out" in about a year. For all the messianic hysterics over Obama from some quarters there's not a thing he can do to stop the economic train wreck about to hit our country. We need to drastically cut taxes, drastically cut government spending and we might be able to salvage the situation. Those moves are not in Obama's political DNA.

Who can we blame on this retro-deed except ourselves ? The mentality of the current Americano is just amazing if not stupefying. Empty of feeling, duty, obligation, morality, honor, sense of self-worthiness, the only way to go for the Americano is to be roasted slowly skewered from mouth to ass on a green Chinese bamboo stick, all sizzling nicely, fat popping, juices dripping over a bed of white hot charcoal.

Such is the fate of the fat-ass Americano. What a lowdown stinky shame for such a great nation once !

"But the White House said the $4 billion for purchases of foreclosed homes is too expensive and "would constitute a bailout for lenders and speculators, while doing little to help struggling homeowners."

"The provision rewriting the bankruptcy code, the White House said, would allow borrowers to effectively rewrite their mortgage contracts, leading lenders to tighten their standards and raise interest rates."

"The White House said both provisions would in fact slow the recovery of the housing sector."

Well gosh, bankruptcy judges for hundreds of businesses that have filed for chapter 11 do this every day.

They cancel debts on secured assets, reduce interest rates to zero, etc. on corporate assets in Chapter 11. They cancel pensions and use the cash to pay operating expenses rather than shut down the business and preserve the pensions.

They allow senior executives to take multi-million-dollar payouts while small businesses who are owed huge sums get screwed and go out of business.

And the interest rates for business credit aren't anywhere *near* 20%, and if an effort to reform bankruptcy laws to make corporate debtors pay back every penny at the original rate was undertaken, Republican scum-lickers like you would be screaming at the top of your lungs about how "awful for business" such reforms would be.

Y'all are hypocrites.

This presidential election dog and pony show is all bullsh!t anyway. If the constitution was obeyed and if the public knew that the constitution existed, electing a president would not be such a big deal. If the Constitution was obeyed, the president wouldn't have the absolute power to fling his dick around and destroy the country.

It wouldn't matter if a total dribbling retard were elected president because their power would be balanced and restrained by the Constitution. Having a bunch of monkeys in Congress wouldn't matter either because they would be restrained from ripping off the public through the redistribution of wealth - a right that they do not have under the constitution. It's very simple:

It's the Constitution stupid!

It will come down to the economy. Historically, when the economy goes sour in an election year, the ruling party usually takes the fall. Since a recession is very likely now, I don't think the Repubs will be able to pull off a win.

Actually, you've just described most lazy Eurpoeans with their socialist societies and guaranteed month-long paid vacations, free healthcare, etc.

"Well gosh, bankruptcy judges for hundreds of businesses that have filed for chapter 11 do this every day."

And millions of individuals haven't? What's with the anti-business mentality so prevalent here? Do you not realize it's business that pays you a salary to do the absolute minimum work to avoid getting fired? Without business you'd be out on your a** to fend for yourself instead of an easy life of collecting a paycheck while you skate by every day.

How about this - go out there and start your own business with no guaranteed salary and benefits and unemployment insurance and all those other freebies if you think you can do it so much better.

Obama on yesterday's debate:

* In favor of keeping troops in Iraq (smaller amount, but keeping nevertheless)

* If "invited", he'll sit down to "discuss" NAFTA, but didn't guarantee withdrawal from it. Good luck Ohio!

* Willing to bomb Pakistan. Hellooo, Industrial Arms Complex, time to create a phony conflict with Pakistan.

* Didn't exactly reject the nutcase Farrakhan and his even wackier right hand who likes to hang out with Kadafi in Libya.

* In favor of Amnesty for illegals

* Never ran anything in his life, just a stinky tabloid at University. The rest just dropped on his lap, just like the neocons created Bushco.

* Voted more liberal than Ted Kennedy, and considered the most liberal in Senate. Hillary is 16th place; Obama is #1 as most liberal. Prepare the wallet to support Africans who breed like flies and more welfare to Ghettos across America.

Oh, have I told you that Obama's top economics adviser, Goolsbee, is a member of the super-secret Skull & Bones society of Yale University, of which Bush 1 and Bush 2 are also members? Two presidents with the most dreadful administrations in US history, who not only were Skull & Bones themselves but also were surrounded by members occupying strategic positions in our government, from Embassies to critical Federal Agencies. You know the results.

Not only that, Obama's main foreign policy adviser is Zbigniew Brzezinski, the notorious co-founder of David Rockefeller's Trilateral Commission, and the mastermind of the disastrous Carter administration. The guy who come up with the idea of US controlling Eurasia for the oil.

What about Obama's wife, Michelle, who's linked to the Council on Foreign Relations?

Are you guys nuts voting for this shady empty suit who never been tested on ANYTHING and surrounded by secret society types? The same types who destroyed this country in the last 7 years.

We're in one of the most critical periods in America history and you guys are going to put this rookie puppet at the command of your lives? This is the guy, which according to his own memoirs, was doing coke and smoke pot in HI (some of his friends say that he used to smoke crack), while most of us was working our butts off to pay taxes.

You guys better have a plan to live overseas because this country is going down fast, especially if this secret society connected-empty suit becomes president. And the biggest red flag of all, the corrupt MSM is giving a free pass to Obama, while turning him into a rock star. You know something stinks here.

Easy: Run-off elections, either instant run-off or many rounds (most often two). Run-offs are more difficult to controll by the politicians and the rich and, therefore, bad for incumbents and gerry-mandering - just what we need.

Good lord...i'm tellin' ya, these Republicans are a bunch of crooks:

Bloomberg — Representative Rick Renzi, a Republican from Arizona who isn’t seeking re-election, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in an alleged scheme to profit from a land deal.

Renzi, 49, who was first elected to the House in 2002, was charged along with James Sandlin, one of his political backers, and Andrew Beardall, an attorney who had worked as general counsel of Renzi’s family insurance business.

The U.S. alleged that Renzi offered to sponsor legislation to help a company seeking to swap land with the federal government if it purchased property owned by Sandlin. Renzi, who sat on a committee that had to approve such deals, told the company that he wouldn’t support the request if it didn’t buy the land, according to the indictment. No deal was made.

Later, Renzi pressured a separate investment group, also looking for approval of a land exchange, to purchase the property, prosecutors said. That group agreed to buy 480 acres from Sandlin for $4.6 million, the government said.

At the time, according to court papers, Sandlin owed Renzi $700,000. Renzi also was having financial difficulties, the government said.
