Fannie Mae Rolls Out Easy Mortgage, Catering To High-Risk Immigrants

So it appears that the federal government is implementing another destined-to-default high-risk mortgage plan. This new move is wrong-headed and dangerous, and only places more risk on the heads of American taxpayers and their children.

GOP “leadership” once again kicks the can; approves continuing resolution theater

Well, in a move surprising to essentially no one, the spineless and worthless GOP leadership has caved AGAIN on offering even a semblance of fiscal responsibility, instead deciding to fund government with a CR (continuing resolution) until December.

Ooops, We Missed a Milestone!

While we were engaged in other efforts, we totally missed noting when the federal debt crossed over into $18 TRILLION. I'm not sure how we observe this...perhaps with some funeral dirge? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYB3yyu0UrQ http://www.usdebtclock.org/
