<quoted text>I want to say this one more time, and I want to thank again all the people here from the private sector who have worked with Secretary Cisneros on this: Our home ownership strategy will not cost the taxpayers one extra cent. It will not require legislation. It will not add more Federal programs or grow Federal bureaucracy.
Last June, I issued a challenge to everyone involved in the housing industry to help increase the number of minority families to be home owners. And what I'm talking about, I'm talking about your bankers and your brokers and developers, as well as members of faith-based community and community programs. And the response to the home owners challenge has been very strong and very gratifying. Twenty-two public and private partners have signed up to help meet our national goal. Partners in the mortgage finance industry are encouraging homeownership by purchasing more loans made by banks to African Americans, Hispanics and other minorities.

Representatives of the real estate and homebuilding industries, through their nationwide networks or affiliates, are committed to broadening homeownership. They made the commitment to help meet the national goal we set.

Freddie Mae -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- I see the heads who are here; I want to thank you all for coming --(laughter)-- have committed to provide more money for lenders. They've committed to help meet the shortage of capital available for minority home buyers.

Fannie Mae recently announced a $50 million program to develop 600 homes for the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma. Franklin, I appreciate that commitment. They also announced $12.7 million investment in a condominium project in Harlem. It's the beginnings of a series of initiatives to help meet the goal of 5.5 million families. Franklin told me at the meeting where we kicked this office, he said, I promise you we will help, and he has, like many others in this room have done.

Freddie Mac recently began 25 initiatives around the country to dismantle barriers and create greater opportunities for homeownership. One of the programs is designed to help deserving families who have bad credit histories to qualify for homeownership loans. Freddie Mac is also working with the Department of Defense to promote construction and financing for housing for men and women in the military.

There's all kinds of ways that we can work together to meet the goal. Corporate America has a responsibility to work to make America a compassionate place. Corporate America has responded. As an example -- only one of many examples -- the good folks at Sears and Roebuck have responded by making a five-year,$100 million commitment to making homeownership and home maintenance possible for millions of Americans.

There have been other steps that are being taken to close the homeownership gap. And you've heard some of the stories here today, people much more eloquent than me, to talk about what's taking place on the front line of meeting this national goal.

Stay on topic fkface.
Medicare should not be paying for that crap unless the old gal had a serious and documented deficiency. Fk the old lady for cheating MediCare, fk you for being stupid and fk Lois Lane for reposting a nutjob email.
Elderly people often need B12 injections because their bodies are not able to produce the intrinsic factor, an enzyme needed to absorb B12. Also, a poor diet and some health conditions inhibit absorption of Vitamin B12.

An elderly person is more prone to suffer from B12 deficiency because the human body's ability to absorb B12 decreases with age, due in large part to a reduction in stomach acid.

One shot will last for months and even years.

What's it to you anyway? You have no problem supporting able-bodied people who live off your paycheck instead of their own because it's better than working but you'd deny an elderly person a B12 shot?

Juan Williams Calls Out 'Corrupted' Civil Rights Leaders:'They're Happy to Take the Money and Shut Up'

Williams said the tradition of Dr. King is to stand up and act against bad schools, rap culture and the breakdown of the traditional family.

“The civil rights challenge of this generation is education,” Williams said.“Dr. King would never allow anybody to buy his silence, to buy him off.”

Williams added,“Sometimes courage requires that you speak to people who you love in ways that challenge them. The civil rights leadership is all too happy to take the money and shut up. That is corruption.”

Kudos to Juan Williams for having the courage to come out and say what many black leaders will not.

The Republican Choice to Replace Bob Filner May Have a Public Monkey Spanking Problem
http://www.politicususa.com/2013/08/25/republ...
so are you thinking about running for office in the near future?
just make sure there aren't any pictures.
I think we should have a monkey-spanker as Mayor on BOTH coasts:

"Weiner-puller" in NYC, and "Demaio the homo" in San Diego.

Hell, we've already got one of the biggest jagoffs in history in the white house; what's a couple more?

So can someone explain to me the costs of Obamacare?

Let's say an employer drops someone's health coverage and private insurance is too expensive.

Or someone can't afford private insurance and has to go on government exchanges.

Anyone know the approximate cost for someone, let's say, in their 40s and earning 50k?

Only one month and a few more days and it's time to figure out if you're covered or not and know exactly what to do if you aren't.

Anyone got it all down yet?

So if employers haven't dropped the axe by now, can you assume you're still covered? Or not?

What if people who aren't insured but don't qualify for government exchanges still can't afford it?

If anyone can simplify it, I'd appreciate it.

It's what some of us have been saying for years including a former Iraqi general, Georges Sada, who served under Saddam Hussein before defecting and detailed in a comprehensive book how the Iraqi Revolutionary Guard moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria.
Where else would the Assad regime have acquired bio-chemical WMDs?
Bush gave them the weapons to make Obama look bad.

Yep, the U.N. is hot to control every aspect of our lives, from gun ownership, to personal fertility to what we eat.

Why should we trust a group whose aim is to be the only people on the planet allowed ownership of guns?
