In case you were wondering about the Financial Crisis...

UPDATE 2: Senate Bailout vote scheduled tomorrow at 9 AM
UPDATE: Bailout vote fails in the House

Under Clinton, the entire federal government put massive pressure on banks to grant more mortgages to the poor and minorities. Clinton's secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Andrew Cuomo, investigated Fannie Mae for racial discrimination and proposed that 50 percent of Fannie Mae's and Freddie Mac's portfolio be made up of loans to low- to moderate-income borrowers by the year 2001.

Instead of looking at "outdated criteria," such as the mortgage applicant's credit history and ability to make a down payment, banks were encouraged to consider nontraditional measures of credit-worthiness, such as having a good jump shot or having a missing child named "Caylee."

Threatening lawsuits, Clinton's Federal Reserve demanded that banks treat welfare payments and unemployment benefits as valid income sources to qualify for a mortgage. That isn't a joke -- it's a fact.

As predicted, it was the Democrats...
Go to Ann Coulter's site and read the whole thing. She makes some very good points...

Jazzy Ro home after her surgery

The Jazzy Ro was a very good girl for her surgery yesterday. Here she is on the couch. She's not sure she's going to be very good at this rest and relaxation thing, but she's going to give it her best shot. But, she knows she's much happier now as an 'it', rather than a 'she'. :)

Juliana is bruised where the seat belt held her and her left wrist is tender but her car is totaled.

We Will Never Forget

Just wanted to send out a huge "Thank You" to all our military members, firefighters, police officers, EMTs, etc. for all they do for us. Seven years ago, they were called to respond to the worst attack our nation has had on our lands. And they showed they were up to the challenge. The History Channel has put together video clips recorded by civilians from different areas in NY on the day of the September 11th attacks. Here's the link. It brings it all back.
102 Minutes that Changed America
May the victims rest in peace.
All I can say is God Bless America.
