i remember when home prices were going up ,and every imbecile in gvt. thought it would be a great idea to bend the HOUSING RULES and make everyone ,regardless of their finances to cash in on the "BOOM",well surprise ,surprise ,the BOOM turned to BUST.like every other concoction of the left,you see it ,from educations 50% drop out rate , to the 47% who were taxed into poverty,to squandereing our manufacturing base,to bankrupting every government agency who financed the BOOM .not to mention borrowing and printing money to prop up the system and gvt failures..welcome to whats left of the great society ,the BOOM,and the dream..the politicians FLUSHED MOST OF IT..and all the taxes.even the fed it in a spiral

GALLUP: Obama's Job Approval Drops 7 Points in 3 Days..Obama's continued failure to tell the truth to the American people over Libya is showing thier displeasure..........the chickens are coming home to roost.

Obama avoids question on whether Americans in Libya were denied requests for help, it's a wonder he didn't plead the 5th..........

Obama:'Not personally aware' of security requests before Libya attack, so much for being commander in chief.......

if government would have built 5,000,000 public housing units every year since lbj/hud started it in the late 60s ,we would have built over 200,000,000 more home units today.ALL FREE, no forclosure bubble, no fanny or freddie,no bankrupt financial institutiones, no deriveitives,no bundling. and few street people.we would have a nice scalist republic FOR ALL.instead of a capatilistic bubble and a bunch of cliffhangers,waiting for the next ,bubble,cliff or storm .whats next?,an implosion?
