Another across from that one , the fellow is living there for 4 years and not paying the mortgage, the bank moved to take the home two years ago then stopped because of the robosigning scandal.

The upside is one home sold and the new owner is putting in a pool. Another the county bought the home next to him , it was never lived in and built in 2008 . They sodded it , gutters on the sides installed, new trees lining the back yard and fresh paint on the columns in the front and some appliances installed. It will be sold to first home buyer by the county.

A fellow who put in stampcrete in my lanai has no work. I have him doing lawn mantenance for me because things here in Florida as so bad. Another is losing his job at Lowes . He is losing his home.

No work here. One fellow lived in his home for ten years and now is short saling it with the banks permission. So tell me again how Obama is creating jobs?
Florida is in the bizarro world and is not a reflection of what is happening in the majority of the US.

I love the following post and think it is one of the best ones I've read all day:


It starts out somewhat sane and reasonable:

It's an impressive (albeit sad and scary) glimpse into a paranoid mind. I know you don't realize this, Sity, but if this is how you truly feel, you should seek some counseling since this is certainly not an adaptive way to live one's life.

Might be time you actually looked into the meaning of irony
What I was saying...which apparently went sailing straight over your head, is that I have never met a liberal who wasn't a bit hypocritical. They tend to talk a good game, but when push comes to shove, they don't want to give up any of their freedoms, or material possessions, or right to make all the money they can grab hold of....then anyone else. They repeatedly dump all over successful businesses and people of wealth for exercising their legal rights to find loopholes in our federal tax system in order to keep more of what they earn, and yet those same whiners and complainers are very likely utilizing the very same 'sharp pencil' methods when do their own tax return.

A prototypical "Do as I say, not as I do" scenario.

My father, who is a bit religious (I am not), has a saying that he uses often regarding liberals in general:

"It's all fun and games until their own ox gets gored"

These people are either stupid or just paid to post their nonsense.
There is not much of an upside to the housing industry. I see these homes all going into foreclosure.. and many snow birds who moved down here recently trying to sell their homes up north and can't find buyers. .they are selling some homes but not many.

It is a mess for sure.. yesterday a guy who did lawn maintenance for a neighbor who is losing their home came over to inquire for the third time to see if I needed anyone to cut the grass.. it is sad. It is slow. I don't know what these people are going to do. Nice homes sitting empty because of no work.

I hear it was a boom town when the building went on. .. no more. The banks cannot be in good shape. many homeowners have not made any payments in years and living in the home waiting for the banks to move.

They had plenty of work , now they have no work or very little to sustain them.

No, my friend. It is all over. I live in NJ and some towns in the north are mostly foreclosures . If you are in a good area in NJ the homes keep most of their value. There is money in NY and some buy their home in Jersey.

Check out Atlanta,in Reno, or large cities.. where ever their was a housing boom or in urban areas , it is a disaster.

The housing bubble is still bursting and it will not be pretty. We are on very shaky ground.

3 million home buyers never made the first payment on the home they bought. Crazy isn't it?

The real estate market is correcting itself in those areas which were chock full of flippers and other speculators. People talk about fiscal responsibility yet they fail to practice what they preach.

Why, none of course. The post delineates a perfectly thought-out interpretation of the current administration and it's plans for the future of the USA. The majority of items listed are firmly based in reality, are wonderfully reasonable, and must ring true to every person who has not been brain-washed by the liberal media conspiracy.

Not only is the US going up in flames - with those citizens who have the mental capacity to see right through this scam being locked up in concentration camps, but we will also be subjected to a new, One-World government that will rule with an iron fist, take away all of our freedoms, and condemn us to serve an alien master race.

The End is near, I tell you. It's coming.
