Just because you believe it's true doesn't make it true in the real world.
You really need to grow up. People might mistake you for an intelligent person working to be a real idiot!
Russia and Iran are now in the driver's seat.

But you're one of the few remaining who believe Obama when he implied he scared them into it.

Correct?

Yes, lots of foreign investors who are paying cash! It's the banks who want to clear their books of foreclosure inventories who want the cash. However, that has slowed down a bit and it is regular buyers buying now and the prices are going up and up. There are a lot of new construction projects, many of them rental communities; and plans for a luxury housing development in West Boca beginning in 2014. Lots happening in Florida.

Obamacare Screws Trader Joe's Employees

After extending health care coverage to many of its part-time employees for years, Trader Joe's has told workers who log fewer than 30 hours a week that they will need to find insurance on the Obamacare exchanges next year, according to a confidential memo from the grocer's chief executive.

In the memo to staff dated Aug. 30, Trader Joe's CEO Dan Bane said the company will cut part-timers a check for $500 in January and help guide them toward finding a new plan under the Affordable Care Act. The company will continue to offer health coverage to workers who carry 30 hours or more on average.

A current Trader Joe's worker described the coverage she'll likely lose as "one of the best parts about the job." (The employee requested anonymity since she isn't authorized to speak to the media.) She said she pays only $35 per paycheck, or $70 per month, for a plan that generally covers 80 percent of her medical costs, carries a reasonable $500 deductible and includes prescription drug coverage.

"There are several folks I work with who are there for the insurance as much as anything, mostly folks with young families," she said. "I can say that when I opened and read the letter yesterday my reaction was pure panic, followed quickly by anger."

I have a question. Just seen were the city of Richmond, California is thinking of seizing underwater mortgages under eminent domain. Wouldn't that make the city the owner of the property and liable for the mortgages?

Putin is not an idiot. He doesn't want Al-qaeda getting their hands on those chemical weapons and using them against Russia. I'm sure Obama pointed out that scenario to him.
Obama is never going to go against a congressional "no" vote on Syria. That is just another pathological Republican lie.
It's becoming abundantly clear that Obama is actually earning that Nobel Peace prize.
You're exactly right. Putin is not an idiot. He has Obama right where he wants him.

Democrats Seize Private Property

RICHMOND, Calif (Reuters)- Richmond, California's leaders approved on Wednesday morning a plan for the city to become the first in the nation to acquire mortgages with negative equity in a bid to keep local residents in their homes.

The power of 'eminent domain' allows governments to seize private property for a public purpose. Critics say the plan threatens the market for private-label mortgage-backed securities.

Richmond's city council voted 4 to 3 for Mayor Gayle McLaughlin's proposal for city staff to work more closely with Mortgage Resolution Partners to put the plan crafted by the investor group for the city to work.

Richmond can now invoke eminent domain if trusts for more than 620 delinquent and performing "underwater" mortgages reject offers made by the city to buy the loans at deep discount pegged to their properties' current appraised prices to refinance them and reduce their principal.

A mortgage is under water when its unpaid balance is greater than its property's market value.

MRP has failed to get similar plans approved by local governments elsewhere - most recently in North Las Vegas, Nevada and earlier this year in San Bernardino County in Southern California - as the mortgage industry and local real estate businesses rallied against them.

But in Richmond, MRP found an ally in a Wall Street-bashing Green Party mayor of one of the San Francisco region's poorest cities who sees working with the investor group to acquire mortgages as a public purpose if it makes the loans more affordable, averts foreclosures and alleviates blight.

Richmond's residents have been "badly harmed by this housing crisis," McLaughlin said, defending the plan and partnership with MRP during an often contentious city council meeting that began Tuesday evening and ended early Wednesday morning. "Too many have already lost their homes."

City council members opposed to the plan countered that using eminent domain would put Richmond at risk of expensive lawsuits that could destroy the city's finances.

Kerry's testimony in support of the resolution repeated that the Obama objective is regime change in Syria.
WRONG!! As usual.

"I want to make clear," said White House spokesman Jay Carney: "the options that we are considering are not about regime change."

What Kerry said regarding regime change was, "In fact, some of them (Arab nations) have said that if the United States is prepared to go do the whole thing the way we've done it previously in other places (Libya), they'll carry that cost. That's how dedicated they are at this. That's not in the cards, and nobody's talking about it, but they're talking in serious ways about getting this done."

At this point, any discussion of Obama having regime change as an objective is nothing more than Murdoch style sensationalized propaganda. Lies, Lies and more lies.

Anyone remember Alexander Litvinenko? The Russian who became a journalist and wrote two books, Blowing up Russia: Terror from within and Lubyanka Criminal Group, where he accused the Russian secret services of staging Russian apartment bombings and other terrorism acts to bring Vladimir Putin to power?

On 1 November 2006, Litvinenko suddenly fell ill and was hospitalized. He died three weeks later, becoming the first confirmed victim of lethal polonium-210-induced acute radiation syndrome. According to doctors, "Litvinenko's murder represents an ominous landmark: the beginning of an era of nuclear terrorism."

Yeah, Putin calling the shots over those chemical weapons is nothing to worry about.
