    On the housing matter, things have gotten worst than previously reported. A lot WORST!

    The following is an article of over 2 million foreclosures that turned out to be fraud committed by the banks (Chase, Bank of America & others) in about 23 states. Actually what the banks have done is similar to loan sharking.

    If anyone of you are paying a mortgage, it would be highly advised to PAY the house off ASAP. Something does not smell right. And if you got account w/Chase or BofA, you may want to seriously consider getting that money out. Just saying…

  3. Foxwood says:

    I thought that would take more time to stage my stuff. Not too bad. This is supposed to be a big advertised event at the convention center and I bought two side by side booths.

    I hope sales are good. Most of what I have are rare books, glass ware, and dinner ware. I have an ooooooooold hand crank washing machine, some old and retro ash trays (lots o smokers in LA), an old pendulum clock, and beanie babies. It’s mostly collectible or antique.

  4. VotingFemale says:

    Gads, Arlene!!!!

    I was hearing a bit about it this morning but not into the details… thanks for the link

  5. VotingFemale says:

    Sounds like good stuff… how are you going to keep an eye on both booths at the same time?

  6. Foxwood says:

    Good afternoon Arlene.

    Still laughing at the Bawney Fwank.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

  7. VotingFemale says:

    We sold our house just after the bubble peaked and was starting to burst… and started renting.

    Hey! Bawney! HANDS OFF!

    I don’t want to announce who has my mortgage, but I don’t like it. My other house is being rented, on the other hand.

    Hello Fox & VF
    I heard that some of the folks homes were foreclosed even though they had had already paid their homes off. But somebody(ies) just did a mass rubber stamp to foreclose all those homes. And that some folks were at home when the cops kicked down the door & evicted them; and their home was sold before the foreclosure was final.

  15. Foxwood says:

    Wished I would have started 20 years ago when it was at $7.00.

  16. VotingFemale says:

    I just heard from the Sean Bielat folks, they visited this blog post about 15 minutes ago and told me privately that a 14 year old from Barney’s hometown created this Bubble-Head vid…

    I added that info to the blogpost.

    the internet is really cool… 😉

  19. VotingFemale says:

    I was urged to start investing in silver by a co-worker in 1983. As I recall the price then was about $3 @ oz.

    I wasn’t into leveraging and day trading then… he was.

    Time to hunker down.

    Gold & silver is fine. But you need tangible goods. You need water, food, assets that can be quickly traded.

    FDIC banks can hold your money for 90 days. This is when bank fails or when theres run on the bank.

    When theres a bank closure, they lock the doors … literally. They don’t even give advance warning .. not even to people who work there. The regulators come in & put sign on the door to do accounting. Folks cant get there money out on demand. The scenery is: Folks standing outside the bank in panic. When the doors are locked you wont be able to get to the safe deposit box. The rules as I understand it is that nobody can get in until the regulators finish there accounting – which could take 90 days. And with the underhanded stuff going on these days, I wouldn’t count on 90 days being a sure thing.

    This happened as recent as about 2 yrs. ago. about Nov. or Dec. 2008 (doors locked at bank). At that time a lot of stuff was going on in the news. Somehow, this got buried in the news cycle because Obama was getting elected as President. And now this stuff is creeping back up & the main news media is not covering it. I suspect that its the fear of run-on-the-bank while economy is falling.

    You’ll notice that a few months ago, it was said on the news that mortgage foreclosures have dropped. Apparently they are lying because how can foreclosures have dropped when theres foreclosures of 1 million for last yr & 1.8 million for this yr. in 23 states.

  38. VotingFemale says:

    You have a good point about the lockout… mmmm…

    British schools where girls must wear the Islamic veil
    Hundreds of girls are bring forced by British schools to wear the Islamic veil in a move which has been heavily criticised by mainstream Muslims.
    By David Barrett, Home Affairs Correspondent
    Published: 9:00PM BST 02 Oct 2010

    Critics warned that the spectacle of burka-clad pupils entering and leaving the schools could damage relations between Muslim and non-Muslim communities.

    Islamic schools have introduced uniform policies which force girls to wear the burka or a full headscarf and veil known as the niqab.

    Moderate followers of Islam said yesterday that enforcement of the veil was a “dangerous precedent” and that children attending such schools were being “brainwashed”.

    Politics ‘One Nation’ Claims ‘Satellite Image’ Proves 10/2 Rally Is Bigger Than ‘Restoring Honor’
    Posted on October 2, 2010 at 4:14pm by Scott Baker Scott Baker

    Well I guess that settles it. They already have the satellite images and all. The AP must be wrong about the “sparse” crowds. Even MSNBC was saying today’s rally was smaller than the one on 8/28. Joe Madison was happy to set everyone straight:

    Now, did you catch the one possible point of wiggle room with the claim? Mediaite did:

    Maybe Ed Schultz was right about being able to attract more people than Glenn Beck: organizers of today’s “One Nation Together Rally” are claiming that, based on a “satellite image,” there are definitively more people on the Washington Mall today than there were on the 29th of August. Congratulations, liberals! Except “Restoring Honor” was on the 28th…it is a near certainty that there are more people congregated on the Mall today than there were on August 29th, given that there was no event scheduled to occur in the Mall on that date.

    OneNation was so beneficial on so many levels…

    it was a Communist/Socialist Rally with videos and photos to prove it.

    Their mindset was evident …they left it to the government to clean up after then.. leaving Deomcrat supplied signs and box lunch trash everywhere.

    Free speech cases at top of Supreme Court’s agenda
    Oct 2, 10:30 AM (ET)
    By MARK SHERMAN

    WASHINGTON (AP) – First Amendment cases top the Supreme Court’s docket as it begins a new term with a new justice and three women on the bench for the first time.

    The court will look at provocative anti-gay protests at military funerals and a California law banning the sale of violent video games to children. These cases worry free speech advocates, who fear the court could limit First Amendment freedoms.

    The funeral protest lawsuit, over signs praising American war deaths, “is one of those cases that tests our commitment to the First Amendment,” said Steven Shapiro, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union.

    Another case involves a different aspect of the First Amendment, the government’s relationship to religion. The justices will decide whether Arizona’s income tax credit scholarship program, in essence, directs state money to religious schools in violation of the constitutional separation of church and state.

    Bullsh!t, Daisy! islam does not tolerate other religions, read your koran. It also teaches child molestation. I don’t remember the Bible teaching anything like that. How old where you when you were molested?

    Ahmadinejad: Israel savage dog unleashed in region

    Iran’s president calls for US leaders to be ‘buried’ over threats of military action against it
    Published: 10.03.10, 12:36 / Israel News

    Iran’s president called Israel a “savage dog unleashed in the region” Sunday, and said US leaders should be “buried” in response to threats of military attack over Tehran’s nuclear program.

    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is known for brash rhetoric in addressing the West, but in a speech Sunday he used a deeply offensive insult in calling for an undertaker to bury US leaders.

    We Allow Them to Blackmail Us — Islam vs. the West
    By Eileen F. Toplansky
    The Muslim world does not have to fire a single shot; the Western world is capitulating to the Islamists’ every demand. Three recent events show the continuing and relentless interplay among Islamists worldwide.

    The latest assault is playing out in Spain. La Meca, a popular “discotheque in southern Spain, has agreed to change its name and architectural design” because of pressure from Islamic extremists, who find the name of the discotheque and its design “offensive and insulting to their religion.”

    One day after it was revealed that Sen. Lisa Murkowski failed the bar exam four times, the Tea Party Express called out the senator Saturday as a hypocrite for attacking the legal record of their endorsed candidate, attorney Joe Miller.

    Murkowski failed the legal entrance exam several times – news that has gone previously unreported until Friday – and now is the latest development in the Alaska Senate race between Miller, Democrat Scott McAdams, and the senator, who is running as a write-in candidate to keep her own seat.

    The Global Warming Hoax: A Summary
    October 3, 2010 Posted by John at 8:14 PM

    Global warming alarmism is not science. It is a toxic combination of pseudo-religion and totalitarian politics. To the extent that there is any debate over climate science–the alarmists run from debate like vampires fleeing garlic–the “skeptics” always win. If you want to follow climate science controversies in a rigorous but accessible fashion, check out the Science and Environmental Policy Project’s web site. Among other things, it features a weekly update on matters relating to the global warming debate.

    This week’s SEPP newsletter includes an excellent piece by Dr. Harrison “Jack” Schmitt, a former United States Senator from New Mexico as well as a geologist and former Apollo astronaut who currently is an aerospace consultant. Dr. Schmitt reviews some of the basic evidence that the alarmists try to wish away. You really should read it all; here are some excerpts:

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has become a punching bag for struggling Democratic House colleagues this fall, but some mouthy members have hit below the belt, raising questions about whether they’ll face a Pelosi punishment after the elections.

    Pelosi has blown off the public slights from the likes of Texas Rep. Chet Edwards, who recently said he would not commit to backing Pelosi for another term as speaker, and Alabama Rep. Bobby Bright, who recently predicted Pelosi could “get sick and die” before the next Congress. Rep. Heath Shuler of North Carolina even suggested that he might run for the position of speaker himself.
    But will Pelosi be yanking committee seats or chairmanships after the election? It’s unlikely. Pelosi’s form of punishment has been more subtle — usually a cold shoulder and a behind-the-scenes admonishment — but being frozen out by your leader can be costly, especially in campaign fundraising.

    “She uses her power deftly in ways a 21st-century speaker does. This is a powerful speaker who can impact how many campaign dollars you can get,” said Chris Lehane, a Democratic consultant who served in the Clinton White House as communications counsel.

    When California Rep. Xavier Becerra tried to end run Pelosi on Ways and Means Committee slots, Pelosi said in a closed caucus meeting that she still had “tire tracks” on her back, according to several who were in the room at the time. When Rep. Earl Pomeroy stood up in a private Democratic meeting earlier this year to talk about his opposition to health care, Pelosi called him out — stunning the moderate North Dakotan, POLITICO reported earlier this year.

    It remains unclear whether the Bobby Brights and Heath Shulers of the Democratic Caucus will face any punishment — or if they’ll even have to answer to a Speaker Pelosi after the election.

    Right now, these vulnerable Democrats are merely trying to save their seats and distance themselves from an unpopular leader. (See: Hoyer sets himself apart from Pelosi)

    But people who know Pelosi say she has a long memory that could extend beyond the election.

    “This is a strategic decision being made across the country,” said David Mowery, who served as Bright’s campaign manager during his 2008 bid. “This comment isn’t going to hurt him in Alabama. I was there, people actually clapped. But would I be worried about it in Washington? Yes. If [Democrats] come back in control, she’ll probably still be speaker. You don’t want to be completely on the outs.”

    Sleep tight! Don’t let the bedbugs bite!

    Bedbugs make their way into federal office in DC

    WASHINGTON (AP) – The federal building that houses the U.S. Agency for International Development in Washington is heavily secured _ but officials couldn’t keep the bedbugs out.

    USAID officials told employees this week that juvenile bedbugs were found in a single office at the agency’s tower in the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. There were no signs of the bugs elsewhere in the building.

    Officials said that a pest control service would inspect offices and that any infected areas would be treated over the weekend. They also said USAID and the General Services Administration will continue to be proactive to prevent any future bedbug activity.

    The blood-feeder bugs are not known to transmit any diseases. But their bites can cause infections and allergic reactions in some people.

    Other federal agencies with office space in the Reagan Building include the EPA and Customs and Border Protection.

    Emanuel Campaign
    Emanuel To Get Reacquainted With Chicago
    CHICAGO – Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel said he plans to hit Chicago’s grocery stores, train stops, “bowling alleys and hot dog stands” as he prepares to run for mayor of the nation’s third-largest city.

    Emanuel announced Sunday in a video posted on his website, ChicagoforRahm.com, that he’s preparing to run. He had been careful not to launch his candidacy from Washington and headed to Chicago immediately after his resignation was announced by President Barack Obama on Friday.

    In the video, Emanuel said he’s embarking on a “Tell It Like It Is” listening tour of Chicago.

    “As I prepare to run for mayor, I’m going to spend the next few weeks visiting our neighborhoods — at grocery stores, L stops, bowling alleys and hot dog stands,” Emanuel said. “I want to hear from you — in blunt Chicago terms — what you think about our city, and how the next mayor and you can make it better.”

    According to organizers, the tour begins Monday morning on bus stops in the South Loop on Roosevelt Road at 8 a.m., and then moves to an a restaurant in the city’s Chatham neighborhood on the city’s South Side, followed by a walk down 18th street in the city’s Pilsen neighborhood.

    The two-minute video shows a relaxed Emanuel sitting behind a desk wearing a white shirt that’s open at the collar and a dark jacket. Behind him is a photo of his family and several books.

    n making the announcement in a YouTube video, Emanuel appears to be following in the online footsteps of Obama, who was successful in galvanizing support among younger voters with a strong Internet presence and near constant contact through text messages, e-mails and Facebook notes.

    Emanuel’s website offers several options for receiving updates, including e-mail and text, and more than 15,000 Facebook users had “liked” his page by Monday morning.

    Lori Goldberg, an Emanuel spokeswoman, said the online video was an attempt to reach as many people as possible. Emanuel plans to make “a more formal announcement” after the November election.

    “By having the website up, it also allows people to communicate with him,” Goldberg said.

    Bruce Newman, professor of marketing at DePaul University, called the online announcement “a clever move.”

    “(Emanuel’s) ability to communicate via the social media will be critical to his success,” Newman said. “The voter in today’s world is tuning in to a whole different level of communication.”

    But other political analysts said the online approach won’t work for all voters.

    “This is going to be a Generation X campaign with Facebook, Twitter and all that … but you should never forget the power of friend talking to friend, neighbor talking to neighbor,” said Tom Manion, a longtime political operative who directed Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley’s first re-election campaign in 1991.

    Indeed, one of the challenges facing Emanuel in a mayoral run is reconnecting with Chicago voters after his time in Washington. Emanuel highlighted his ties to Chicago in the video Sunday, noting his three terms representing a North Side district in Congress before serving as Obama’s chief of staff.

    “It was a great honor to work for (Obama), but I’m glad to be home,” Emanuel said.

    Emanuel’s website says his family’s home is in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood. But a tenant recently re-signed a lease for the home, leaving Emanuel to rent a condo closer to downtown, Goldberg said.

    She said his three children will stay in Washington to finish the school year.

    Daley announced last month that he would not seek a seventh term as mayor.

    Emanuel joins a crowded field of Democrats who have announced or hinted that they’re running. Among them are Chicago School Board president and close Daley ally Gery Chico, Chicago City Clerk Miguel del Valle, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart and state Sen. James Meeks, who’s also the pastor of a church in the city’s South Side.

    Before Emanuel’s announcement Sunday, Chico called on him to release details about his dealings with former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s administration in regard to the U.S. Senate seat once held by Obama.

    Blagojevich will be retried next year on federal charges that allege he schemed to sell the seat after his first trial ended in a mistrial. Emanuel was not called to testify and hasn’t been charged with any wrongdoing.

    Del Valle said in a statement before Emanuel’s announcement that he welcomes “all candidates to the race and look forward to a spirited campaign.”

    “This is the first time in 67 years that there is an open seat, and a crowded field will ignite interest and give voters choice,” del Valle said.
