The Associated Press reported yesterday that included in a tax rebate deal hammered out between Congress and The White House is a provision to raise the limits on FHA loans and the mortgages that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may purchase. Originally it was reported that this limit would be up to $725,000 in high-cost areas, such as Southern California. Today it is being reported that the limits would be up to $730,000 for FHA loans, and 125 to 150% of an area's median home price for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgages, that would be considered conforming loans.

There is an old folk saying that goes along the lines of “If at first you don’t succeed, find out if there is a prize for the loser”. However in the case of Senator Fred Thompson, there will be no prize, just humiliation, and looming lack of recognition as to who he is, aside from “That guy old white guy from Law and Order who is not Sam Waterston or Jerry Orbach”. No, a month from now, maybe even less, people will forget the name Fred Thompson and he’ll be just as unknown as he was when he first started his snail-paced race towards the White House....

During the war, soldiers and other poachers killed vast amounts of herds, planted landmines and destroyed the park's infrastructure. By the 1990s, the park that was once hailed as paradise was all but abandoned and the area was not unlike many other communities of waste and ruin that we are told about by our parents when they generally want children to eat up and not waste any food. There are so many people in the world who are not as lucky as you, so thank the lord and eat hardy. I know all of us can remember that episode as a child, I certainly can relate to that myself. The question... Read More
Specifically the United States was to blame for it. Supposedly Vladimir Putin believes that the State Department had something to do with the rallies over the weekend and had words with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe's ODIHR. Which
I couldn't see why the rallies might of happened with the way Putin runs the country. I mean with him sending in the police and arresting people on the charges of "unsanctioned" rallies specifically Garry Kasparov and "dozens" others out a crowd of approximately 2000. Kasparov was convicted and sentenced to five days in jail almost... Read More
Perhaps I am an unusual sort of guy; I enjoy a good civil debate, tempered with levelheaded rules of course. The first rule is to debate your point of view using evidence through researched material. But the main rule is to always keep it civil as the debate can become dislodged from the purpose of its intent (purpose of a debate is to seek out the truth through adamant research on the part of both debating competitors).
The point here is to debate with knowledge as your choice of weapons and with mutual respect for the opposition and his or her counterviews. It is without a doubt that... Read More
Putin stated that Russia would not redirect any missile aims of its own toward Europe if the U.S. locates its interceptor missiles there. President Bush termed the suggestion an "interesting proposal", according to White House adviser Steven Hadley. The United States has planned to locate a missile defense system in Poland and Czechoslovokia, which drew threats by the Russian president to aim missiles at Europe. President Putin considers American missiles in those former Communist nations as a threat to Russia; President Bush has dismissed those concerns as baseless and assures that their... Read More
I usually don’t write about politics. Along with religion, it’s one of the most debated subjects we have as a people. No matter if you’re a democrat or republican, we all have our viewpoints. But, given the political year we’re all about to engage in, I felt it time to express my position of where I see America, as it currently stands. I realize many won’t agree here, but holding back hasn’t ever been my strongest trait.
America has become an extremely divided nation, and angrier. It’s now rich vs. poor, liberal vs. conservative, democrat railing against republican, black more hostile... Read More
