Watch it before youtube bans it again

For a little blast from the past:

Fannie Mae Eases Credit To Aid Mortgage Lending - New York Times STEVEN A. HOLMES, September 30, 1999

Here was the response to any attempt at regulation by the Republicans.

BTW I'm Voting For McCain / Palin


THE question for Obama

Here is the question Obama must answer at the town hall forum:

Have you ever been involved with securing mortgages for those with poor credit?

Thoughts on the debate

First I find it very tacky on Obama's part to repeatedly refer to Sen McCain as John. I'm sure his people told him to do it for a reason other than to irritate me.

The HH6 says Obama cannot be elected as she cannot stand 4 years of listening to his pronunciation of Taliban and Pakistan.

The drinking game for the next debate: Every time Obama says Main Street you do a shot.

I don't think Obama could find Main Street USA with an in car GPS and if he did would not deem it worthy of stopping his Limo.

The economic policies of Obama frighten me.

The foreign policies of Obama frighten me.

The social policies of Obama......well they are just plain socialism and that frightens me.

I got a bracelet too!

Yeah you would have been better off just keeping your cock holster shut than fumbling with the soldiers name. You mean to tell me it been on his wrist for 7 months and he couldn't quickly come up with the young mans name?

Well bubba I have 2 bracelets and I doubt I would have to stutter to give you all the info on both of them and a quick bio of both soldiers.

iPhone 3G

I got one the day it came in 16gb version and have to say I am mostly happy with it. I am still puzzled why no one can seem to write a simple program to allow copy and paste with it. It will certainly limit my blogging with it since it makes it much more difficult to add links to the post.

I am enjoying the Star Wars Unleashed game on it though. :D

Conditions for a Ford bailout

I think if the federal government is serious about helping the automakers with tax payer money the automakers should give something back. No I am not talking about recliners for the labor pool guys to sit in all day while they draw a check. I think Ford should have to use the money to retool one of their SUV plants to make this Ford Fiesta ECOnetic which gets 65 mpg. It would put all the other gas saving cars to shame. I remember back during the Carter years (shudder) my dad bought a diesel Volkswagen Rabbit to drive back and forth to work. Even with diesel being more than gas the extra MPG and the fact it would probably last longer would make it well worth it. heck I still see Rabbits on the road.

For clean coal or not?

Living in a large coal producing state and right in the middle of the Western KY coalfield I have to say I am intrigued to say the least. So if the UMW supports the Obama campaign whose side are they really on? I would not mind more clean coal plants but am more interesting in knowing how the USAF plans for a plant to make jet fuel from coal are coming along.

Bailout of whom?

So if the Federal government is going to assume a huge pile of bad or potentially bad mortgages who is it that is really getting bailed out here. Granted to companies on Wall Street are going to be off the hook but what about the home owners? I doubt the government will be very interested in foreclosing on these homes and it sounds like the mortgages themselves will be restructured and there also be foreclosure protections built in.

Maybe the politicians trying to score points should stop calling it a Wall Street bailout and just call it what it is a mortgage bailout.
