Go Ahead and Secede, Texas. We Dare You.

.... maybe the solution is simply to give Texas and other secessionist-conservatives what they really want: free passage to the land of all their conservative fantasies. Send them all off with gratis one-way tickets (I’m happy to earmark some of my socialist tax dollars for the effort) to a country with: a small federal government with limited power and meager influence over the private lives of its citizens; extremely weak trade unions routinely sabotaged by the federal government (i.e., a “pro-business environment”); negligible income tax; few immigrants, legal or otherwise; a dominant Christian population, accounting for some 70 percent of the people; no mandatory health insurance or concept of universal health care; a strong social taboo surrounding homosexuality and a constitution that already states,“All individuals have the right to marry a person of their choice of the opposite sex”; and a gun culture so ubiquitous that you can find automatic weaponry displayed openly on the streets of its capital city and in many households.

Sound like a Texan secessionist’s dream? Well, it’s no dream. This country already exists. It’s called the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Don’t mess with us, Texas. You just might get what you want.

"Slow housing market?" Make up your mind - do you want lenders making junk loans, or people making housing purchases within our means?

Can't have it both ways - either most folks won't have the means to purchase a house, and the market will be 'slow', or the banks will keep lending to folks who cannot afford a mortgage, and the market will be 'gone in 60 seconds' fast.

Get a grip.

And the men who hold high places
Must be the ones who start
To mold a new reality
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart
The blacksmith and the artist
Reflect it in their art
They forge their creativity
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart

Philosophers and ploughmen
Each must know his part
To sow a new mentality
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart
You can be the captain
I will draw the chart
Sailing into destiny
Closer to the heart

Homer not gonna argue with this.

Qualifying for a mortgage has nothing to do with the new tax that sellers will incur when they sell their home because of the new tax in ObamaCare. The tax will mostly affect sellers who make a profit in metro areas where average income is high and real estate costs are high, like New York and California.

Florida Governor Rick Scott, one of the most outspoken critics of President Obama's health care law, signaled Tuesday that he may be ready to drop his longstanding opposition to Obamacare.
In an interview with the Associated Press, the Republican said that he is willing to negotiate with the federal government on implementing the new program.
"The election is over and President Obama won," Scott said. "I'm responsible for the families of Florida.… If I can get to yes, I want to get to yes."
"I don't think anyone involved in trying to improve health care should say 'no, no, no,'" Scott continued. "Let's have a conversation."

Crime syndicates and drug cartels are smuggling large bottled soft drinks and sugary snacks into the city by the truckload, disguised as emergency relief supplies. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has declared a "War on Cinnabons" and has ordered police to inspect all snack food and soft drink trucks entering the city. Other police have been assigned to fast-food restaurants to weigh every "questionable" soft drink. The ACLU has file a lawsuit on behalf of McDonald's Corp. complaining that the weight of the ice and the cup don't count. A customer at a local Burger King was arrested for assault after pouring the extra 1/2 oz. of her drink on an officer's shoes. Another was arrested for "spiking" after sprinkling ice-melting salt from the sidewalk on her bland cheeseburger. Tensions in New York continue to mount.

Sometimes It's Hard To Be A Woman...(in a catholictard society)

Two investigations are under way into the death of a woman who was 17 weeks pregnant, at University Hospital Galway last month.

Savita Halappanavar (31), a dentist, presented with back pain at the hospital on October 21st, was found to be miscarrying, and died of septicaemia a week later.

Her husband, Praveen Halappanavar (34), an engineer at Boston Scientific in Galway, says she asked several times over a three-day period that the pregnancy be terminated. He says that, having been told she was miscarrying, and after one day in severe pain, Ms Halappanavar asked for a medical termination.

This was refused, he says, because the foetal heartbeat was still present and they were told,“this is a Catholic country”.

She spent a further 2½ days “in agony” until the foetal heartbeat stopped.

Pay to play, baby.

If you decide to keep your home rather than selling it, to avoid paying a new tax on whatever you would realize in profit, more power to you. Now if all you're doing is flipping a series of houses...cost of doing business.

Wahh.
