    Re:mitt speech

    Thank GOD!


    Now that Mitt has sealed to nomination. It’s gonna be fun watching him run to the middle leaving the neo-cons where they belong…. Off the far extreme right deep end.

    It will be great to see the Obama team take the gloves off and expose Mitt as the horrible Govenor and perverse business man he is!!!!!
    John Edwards. I have zero doubt there are even more women and probably Elizabeth had a good clue about em. The wives are not blind dummies the usually have a good clue, and obviously John Edwards was/is a F up! If he gets away with this one I will be extremely disappointed but not surprised due to his money and sleezy tact with the law.

    Good Morning Jeff

    They “ALL” on both sides run to the middle in the general, then the dark side takes over and they just RUN away from all of us :-)

    Edwards may have had only one affair, I think if there we’re more it would have already come out, but in time you’ll see more of them simply to write a book or for their 15 minutes of fame.

    Pre-Good Morning

    Dude, this is getting serious again, 2 more Foreclosure’s on our street since Monday. Both by houses being bought through Chase Bank. Is this the start of a new Foreclosure spree? And they are only giving the familes 20 days to move out. That stinks.

    Good Morning to you and all!

    I dont know how it works down there but Michigan is a redemption state so here is how it goes; people quit making payments and about 4 month later the bank issues a forclosure notice and it is scheduled to go to sheriffs sale. about 3 – 4 months later it goes to sheriffs sales and enters the “redemption period” (6 months for a regular home and 1 year for a home with acerage over 2 acres) during this period the homeowner can buy the house out of redemption and save it but they need the lump sum. When the redemption runs out and if the people have not moved out there is an eviction process that takes another 2 month or the bank will offer “cash for keys” to vacate (yep they get paid up to $3500 to move out of the houser they have not made a payment on and lived for free in). So to summerize, the family could live for FREE for well over a year in the house befor they have to get out.

  • Coffee Steve


    Thank you, I’ll let my neighbors know and check and see if there is anything like this around here.

  • Coffee Steve


    Kentucky Law does allow a redemption period, I will notify them. Thanks Bro, I always like to help my neighbors when I can

    UK Slides Back Into Recession in First Double Dip Since 1970s

    Britain’s economy slid into its second recession since the financial crisis after official data unexpectedly showed a fall in output in the first three months of 2012, piling pressure on Prime Minister David Cameron’s embattled coalition government.

    The Office for National Statistics said Britain’s gross domestic product fell 0.2 percent in the first quarter of 2012 after contracting by 0.3 percent at the end of 2011, confounding forecasts for 0.1 percent growth.

    Piers Morgan had on the Dali Lama and was surprised the Lama liked Pres Bush the younger. I could see why, considering the last time the Dali Lama visited, he was shoved out of the White House through the garbage door. This is what happens when the current pres has his forehead to the floor and his butt in the air before the Chinese gov.

    Evidence that shook Government to its core

    Former BSkyB chief shocks Leveson Inquiry with frank disclosure of his close relationships with ministers, as Culture Secretary is urged to resign after explosive emails show his office briefed News Corp on BSkyB bid

    The Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, was battling to save his political career last night after it was revealed that his office was secretly passing information to the Murdochs during their £7.5 billion bid to take over BSkyB.

    Mr Hunt faced demands for his resignation after hundreds of pages of explosive emails, released by News Corp to the Leveson Inquiry, showed that his political advisers engaged in intimate and frequent briefing of the Murdochs’ chief lobbyist to help get the deal through – despite Mr Hunt’s claim to have acted impartially in his exercise of quasi-judicial powers.

    One email quoted Mr Hunt saying “we’d get there in the end” and that he “shared” News Corp’s objective of taking over the broadcaster.
