From what I just read elsewhere it is going to start running a little faster. Sickening.

all lies friend. yes a tax increase but no cuts in spending. the war in iraq is not over we sent blackwater there to take their place far more expensive they account for 40% of war budget.
the economy is not rebounding i have been listening to that for 3 years, the federal reserve is buying up property backed bonds by the truckload to desperately try to prevent the inevitable, deflation.
the banks stand poised with millions of home unsold and off the market praying that property prices stay high.
u paint a very pretty but false picture friend.

Total nonsense - and I say this as someone with personal experience since we're currently in the process of selling our home -which we didn't even have ON THE MARKET.

In many parts of the country - including here in Seattle - foreclosed homes are immediately snatched up by companies and people converting them into rentals as soon as they come on the market. The result is that there's a huge shortage of homes for sale - especially at the lower end of the market. This means that individuals hoping to buy homes are actually having an extremely hard time finding homes to buy - which sometimes (as in our case) results in buyers and their agents approaching homeowners (such as ourselves) who don't even have their house on the market.

So, if all goes as planned, the end of this month (or thereabouts) we're off to start a new life in sunny Arizona.

Congratulations on the sale of your home. Your experience however, cannot be extrapolated to the rest of the country.

You should never do that. I bet if you return to the same corner tomorrow, you will see that old man at the very same spot. Unless I see a missing arm or leg, I will not give any money to anyone.

It's looking pretty dismal to ever see the debt clock running backwards because even Republican proposals aren't balancing the budget. We need some Libertarians in office to see real change.

Let me guess, you're not going to wait until everything is sorted out, you're not going to wait until the other war is over, healthcare is implemented and until after the republicans have sabatoged our credit rating with a faux debt limit fight. You want concrete answers right now or else you're going to blame Obama for not climbing up and winding the clock back himself. In another shocking twist, you'll place no blame on house republicans who couldn't even agree on their own plan because of pledges they made to a prickly lobbyist
