Love and real estate

...I am just a dreamer, but you are just a dream,
You could have been anyone to me.
Before that moment you touched my lips
That perfect feeling when time just slips
Away between us on our foggy trip.
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but I'm getting blown away...

Perhaps FRANK at Scottsdalesucksmaterialisticass should brush up on Political History and stop being such a hardcore whining blind right winger.

Check this out. So much for that Republican Congress. In addition , Phil Gramm passed a VETO PROOF bill to Clinton , compliments of the REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED CONGERSS that got the whole mess officially under way.

ShooooDog!!! I'm looking for my fat jucey year end bonus again this year.

I think our preformance this year, while not the greatest, really wasn't that bad. It's the talent of professionals like myself that accounts for this world class performace.

I'm gonna get the bonus that I deserve so very much and go down to the Bahammas, get stupid drunk and make a fool of myself like I usually do.

Isn't it pretty funny how the policy makers and Bail Out team is making all these Bail Outs before they reform the system or correct the practices that caused the problems .

For all intents and purposes ,the
corrupt system is still in tack .

Wouldn't the powers change the bad laws or the bad regulations before they even go for a Bail Out ?

It seems like the sole concern for the policy makers is how to fund and fuel the corrupt system to shore it up again and create a bubble that will create market stimulation .

Taking away penalty for walking on a house ,was one of the few thing the powers did ,yet that was a get out of jail free card for the
gamblers and caused more walking .

Senator Dodds has got to be one of the most evil of this group of bought off pigs . Isn't it interesting how the Favors for Loan Bribes ,didn't get any traction .

Our public servants who are suppose to be working for us are not interested in law and order and every move they make ,every priority they show, confirms this .
