    Default We really are in trouble now

    And all because you guys were so afraid of the Commies and Big Government that you weren't man enough to regulate the banks.

    No one knows who really owns their homes. Great. And challenges are being made on whether foreclosures are legal because the banks didn't keep the paperwork. Great. Which means foreclosed homes will just hang around ages because no one will buy them. Great.

    This is the end. The best I might get out of it is a free house. But then it won't be worth very much if I do.

    Imagine an America in which no one is paying their home loans.

    What a mess.

    Yeah, RE is a mess Ian, that I will agree on.

    People are getting more crass about things too. More difficult to get along with in the RE industry or the banking industry. I suggest people to do business with family local business. My mortage is held by a smaller bank, that has been in business forever, and they are still growing in my area. I recommend people interested in buying property to do the same, because to be quite honest, smaller business just care more and will try harder across the board.

    This morning something happened while trying to mail a letter which shows alot of people's mentalities these days. Talk about grumpy...

    Scenario, I am heading into the post office to mail a letter to my son. I am standing in the line which I can never understand why it is long, at all times of the year, when they complain they are losing money. Whatever. I am standing in line. Patiently waiting my turn.

    I hear the woman tell the woman in front of me, they have Bart Simpson stamps. Wow, that is the one I want I thought.

    I get called over and I told this man, an older man, maybe a bit older than me, that I wanted a Bart Simpson stamp on this. I was greeted with such rudenss, that at first I thought he was kidding.

    He said, " I am not selling you one, you buy one of these." And, shows me an array of ugly stamps. I said, " I don't want those, I want Bart." He quipped, " you aren't getting one."

    I stood there looking for cameras like this is for some stupid show on tv... but, I didn't see any.

    I said, " okay, this is funny, now, I want Bart." He said, " I already told you twice, and I am not telling you again."

    I said, " WHAT?"

    THINKING, he can't be speaking to me, I am looking behind me now.

    There got to be his kid in the back of me, but, nope, just other customers.

    I said, " I don't know what your problem is, but, I want to buy a stamp and I am going to buy Bart."

    He flings back the letter and says, " NO BART."

    I asked him, again, " and, why can't I buy Bart?" " AS I TOLD YOU, HE IS SOLD IN BOOKS, DO YOU WANT TO BUY A BOOK!"

    I am shocked... and angry.

    I said, " how much for a book of Bart's then?" "7.80!" he is shouting at me.

    I said, " YOU DIDN'T SAY THAT" just give me 2 of that stamp there! it was some kind of painting.

    He said, " IF I PUT 2 OF THAT ON THERE, IT WILL COST YOU 88 CENTS, YOUR LETTER IS 78 CENTS, DO YOU WANT ME TO SPLIT THE STAMP IN HALF!"

    I threw a dollar down and said, " you suck, keep the change." And, started to walk away.

    He then, yelled at me saying, " YOU ARE A VERY PLEASANT WOMAN!"

    I turned around, I walked back to him, and I said, " MY HUSBAND'S NAME WAS TIM, ( HIS BADGE SAID TIM) AND, HE WOULD HAD NEVER TREATED A WOMAN OR ANYONE LIKE YOU!"... he said to this, " WHATEVER."

    I stood there, and said, " I am going back to my office and I am reporting you." And, he said, " go ahead."

    I turned and fronted all the other customers, about 15 of them, and said, " DON'T go to him, he is a rude man." And, I left.

    Men... what is it with men?

    What do you expect when the foxes are guarding the hen house?

    Funny thing the idiots in this state would have probably reelected him if he didn't decide not to run again.
    If he did he probably would have been censured like his father was....

    Frankly when someone wants to spend over $20M of their own money to be elected to help us I'm a skeptic...

    She talks of smaller government and lowering taxes, but when the state rolls out tax credits for film makers to boost jobs in the industry in Connecticut, she was grabbing up over 90% of the funds for her company. She followed that up with laying off 10% of her workforce and paying herself a $46M salary...

    How do you "Vote Well" with those choices?

    Well, now I have to get the Bart Simpson stamps.

    On the other note.
    How do you pay yourself 46 million and then start laying off people.

    And she wants to ruin, I mean run things?

    And on the other note, I'm English too.




    And some other things too. I think my family went with the best of all breeds.

    Oh, I remember the Loves. They used to live down in Suffolk. Until Richard moved to Virginia in 1642.

    He wasn't the brightest of plumbers.

    I'm confused...
    Would that be the geek in the 60's suit or, the middle aged woman in spandex tights up on the top rope?

    No it's pathetic that the 2-parties are failing so bad at bringing good candidates forward to run for office.

    Well, I was not going to bring this up but I feel brave today. One of my goals in life was and still is, to be Mayor of the town in which I own camp property. Now, being that the population in that town is 692 people, it doesn't say much but, I just love this town. My husband said, I would make the coolest mayor being I own nice clothes.

    ... and shoes.

    Plus, I have this great idea for a new tax to be implemented. It is called the Man Speak TaX. If a man wants to speak he has to pay 250.00 a year first. Each year their will be an increase.
