69% of home sales are cash in S. Florida

Across the state, 66 percent of home sales were cash, compared with the national rate of 40 percent. One expert called Florida's rate "astounding."

With one of the nation's highest foreclosure rates, South Florida has a large supply of bank-owned properties. Lenders aren't interested in waiting for traditional buyers to qualify for mortgages, preferring instead to sell to investors paying cash.

And that has virtually shut out entry-level homebuyers.

"That's where all the action is," said Lex Levinrad, founder of the Distressed Real Estate Institute, a Deerfield Beach-based club for investors. "The banks have an urgent need to get these bad loans off their books as soon as possible. They're willing to sell for 30 percent less to a cash buyer rather than waiting for a buyer with a mortgage

Bush returned to his normal activities the very next day after having the stent procedure. It's pretty obvious he was just making a lame excuse because he didn't want to attend the event honoring MLK.
Just for the sake of argument, let's say it's true... You better look at the instructions given a patient, after stints are put in. I for one am glad he didn't attend a 'celebration' for a philanderer. Better read history in the raw. Because that's what it is.

Zimmerman expressed uncertainty about the future of their relationship when asked if they are still together.

"I'm not going to answer that," Shellie Zimmerman said. "Of course I want to have children and stay married..."

"With George?" journalist Christi O'Connor asks in the interview Thursday on Good Morning America.

"That's something I'm going to have think about," Shellie Zimmerman responds.

We have been pretty much gypsies for past year and a half," Shellie Zimmerman said. "We lived in a 20- foot trailer in the woods, scared every night that someone was going to find us and that it would be horrific

She revealed she wasn't home the night George confronted Trayvon because they had an arguement earlier that day and she was staying with her father.

What oil? I say; let the Russians handle it. Our going in there and bombing that rubble to smithereens won't solve a thing and Assad won't resign. Maybe the threat of it will cause talks to begin.
The price of oil has already jumped up because of the threat of escalated conflict in Syria. I agree that bombing anything in Syria doesn't solve anything, in fact, it only generates more enemies and ungrateful temporary friends.
No one, not us or the Russians, can handle the chaos in the Middle East.

Yeah right like when Obama settled the Libyan war without lost of one American life in the line of fire. Obtained objective within months. Sends a virus to Iran rather than boots. Something the republican military industrials were promoting. Obtained the terrorist objective[ Osama Bin Laden] in less than two years without archaic republican torture chambers. Yeah you really are on the ball. DUH…..!
Mean while back at the ranch. Talk of 1773 reemerging as the fall months arrive.
How about the Budget??
Well, well here we go again. Intoxicated Tea pirates will once again seek to hold our nation hostage for a ransom. It’s the only political leadership they have. Debates, arguments and compromise, they have demonstrated time and time again, they lack the political savvy or education to follow our democracy in favor of anarchist ideologies.“Our way or the highway.”
In the past they have lowered our nations credit rating which cost taxpayers $Billions more in interest payments increases, thus raising the debt! Balancing the budget is the least on their minds. Failure of our democracy is their primary objective. Observe after all these years and they still do not have a plan to stabilize or reduce the national debt. That alone speaks volumes of the nature of their black hearts.
Redundant failed past strategy is what the intoxicated Tea Party considers a winning solution?? Anchoring their demands on reducing Health Care for the elderly as President Obama seeks to raise taxes on the 1% and some elitist corporations that pay taxes equal to the common citizen or even less than average citizen.
Taking advantage of our Democracy’s infrastructures,… to build their empires,… without sharing it with the laborers that made it possible for them. The 1% accumulating over 33% of all national wealth and the 10% absorbing 80% of the national income. 90% of us have 20% to make due??
Republicans solution: Let the ever increasing numbers of the impoverish die. Simply by removing any subsides that supports their existence. Food, water, fuel, Health Care, education, etc. etc. That is the bottom line of the republicans agendas.
Democrats seek to have the economics of the laborers productivity more evenly distributed with the ideology of “Leave No One Behind”.
Sen. Boehner and McConnell lead the pirates in their endeavors to hold the nation captive.
A rift has been growing within the republican party that no longer support the archaic ideologies of their extremist Tea Party nuts. Senators Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Bob Corker of Tennessee, John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, John Hoeven of North Dakota, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Dan Coats of Indiana. Just to name a few senators, as well as an increasing number of republican governors.
Will the core of the traditionalist conservative republicans mount a a 1773 attack on the Tea and gather it up and cast out unto the waters of oblivion before its too late? Will the Tea Nuts, drive another nail into the republicans political coffin?
Stay tuned for the upcoming events….
You forgot to give Obama credit for all his wars, record amount of campaign fundraising and best golf score.

And unlike Obama, neither President Bush killed Osama while hanging out with a body guard and playing Spades. Cool is cool.

There was a very long list of successful black men and women who were not invited.
It looked to me like the only people invited are the race baiters trying to start a race war.

A high-level Israeli delegation headed by National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror arrived in Washington on Monday for political and security talks with senior U.S. officials.

We Dems can be so proud that we are killing Martin Luther Kings dream by keeping blacks down while saying that we are trying to help.

All one has to do is look at the facts to see that the blacks are in worse shape overall then the early 1960's. They have more options to better themselves but for a lot of them they have no reason to do it because of our lib policies.

When MLK said,“I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they are not judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character..” Do you think he could have dreamed of today where the Liberally-inclined media uses the term “white-Hispanic” in their racially sensationalized news coverage.

Do you think Martin Luther King would have dreamed that we live in a nation where dozens of black children are shot every week in the war zone of Chicago without so much as a whisper on the nightly national news, or from the first “white-black” President in American history.

Most of America has a dream. It is the same Dream that King articulated so emotionally 50 years ago on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

And our progressive brand of Obama’s Democrat Party has spent the last fifty years suffocating this dream under empty promises and government programs.

Just like the plantation owners of the pre-war south, we in the Modern Democrat Party get the minority vote by promising black America a roof, food, and protection from the risks of freedom.

And the brave few who don’t listen to the race baiters like Reverend Wright or Poverty Pimps like Al Sharpton and who dare to champion the forgotten cause of individualism are ridiculed among the Left; called traitors to their race; and are said to not know their proper place – as voters in the Democrat plantation.

So thank God that beyond yesterday’s hypocrisy, the message that was absent from yesterday’s commercialized remembrance of King’s speech, was by far his most important message.

Our rights, as King Preached, are not gifts given to us by the government.

Our prosperity should not hinge on a governor’s attitude, or the President’s signature, but on our own initiative; for only without the oppressive hand of government will men and women of any race be able to say those powerful words that closed Martin Luther King’s historic speech:

“Free at Last. Free at Last. Thank God Almighty, I am Free at Last.”

Except we Dems make sure that generation after generation live in dangerous urban plantations.

It's the leftist media myth that keeps on giving...in the voting booth.

Do you mean the war the Arab terrorists started?

Do you mean the war when Al Qaeda went from hiding in caves to taking over countries since Obama Obama began "fighting" it?

Now, the question you hid from all day yesterday:

Do you want Americans to be killed to help Al Qaeda take over another country and get chemical weapons?

Syria Debate Deepens Republican Divide

Neocons and libertarians face off.“There are groups of Republicans that are comfortable with the executive branch unilaterally using our armed forces anywhere in the world. I’m not comfortable with that,” said Radel.

Meanwhile, prominent conservative opinion makers are demonstrating a similar lack of cohesion on the Syria issue.

Sean Hannity spent the opening hour of his radio show Tuesday twisting himself into various rhetorical gymnastics in order to simultaneously criticize Obama for being too weak, and for pursuing a military strike. He tentatively sided with the libertarians, but said there were still “more questions” to ask.

“I hate to say it, but it might just be time for the United States to get the hell out of the way and let two groups of bad people just kill each other, and provide as much humanitarian assistance as possible,” Hannity said of the conflict in Syria.

Glenn Beck has devoted the week to questioning whether the U.S. really has the evidence it claims to have that Assad used chemical weapons, and warned that a military strike on Syria could prompt “World War III”(helpfully mapped out on a giant chalkboard map of the globe.)

And Rush Limbaugh, the most powerful conservative pundit in the country, openly confessed that he hadn’t made up his mind on the issue. After tearing in to the president for failing to act when Syria first crossed “the red line,” and deriding Democrats’ foreign policy “hypocrisy,” he arrived at the question of whether the U.S. should strike Syria.

“I mean, folks, that is a toughie,” he said.

a toughie. you heard your leader.

and for you folks who've been crying about WWIII....your secret is out.
