    Liberals are doing a great job of diverting from the Obama record by focusing on the past. What happened during the housing crisis hasn't been improved today and in fact foreclosures continue, more people are under water, banks aren't lending, more people are on food stamps, more people in poverty so no wonder Obama supporters want to ignore what is going on right now

    Yeah, let's stop looking backwards when it makes your side like like incompetent ****s.

    Let's focus on today's headlines instead:

    The Tonopah Solar company in Harry Reid's Nevada is getting a $737 million loan from Obama's DOE.
    The project will produce a 110 megawatt power system and employ 45 permanent workers.
    That's costing us just $16 million per job.

    One of the investment partners in this endeavor is Pacific Corporate Group (PCG).
    The PCG executive director is Ron Pelosi who is the brother of Nancy's husband.

    Im one of those foreigners who was considering buying a property in the SE US but have changed my mind. It says something about the confidence of the US leadership that even at these prices there are still few buyers. Im in Central America at the moment and property prices have more stability here, with Americans being among the buyers.

    People can believe whatever they want but when their own money is on the line they can do a 180 rather quickly. Im looking forward to America making a comeback to the point where reality trumps ideology. I certainly hope its not too late as Americans have always been great friends and neighbors.

    It is going to be a terrible 2012 as this will be the nastiest Presidential election in history and yet one of the most important. Obama laid out his basic platform yesterday which is based upon class warfare, redistribution of wealth, and demonization of individual wealth creation. There are a lot of Americans that believe that bs and thus if Obama wins the backlash from these people is going to be disastrous and if Obama wins the country loses with total conversion to the European socialist model that has failed and is a failure. Too many socialist/marxists here now and I am just glad I live in TX.

    There are people from SA buying up condos like hot cakes here in Miami. Better act fast!

    "September sales of existing condominiums in Miami rose 58 percent year-over-year while sales of existing single-family homes increased 46 percent in the same time period. Prices were also on the rise in September. The average sales price for condominiums in Miami-Dade County increased 13 percent, from $187,185 in September 2010 to $211,455 last month while the average sales price for single-family homes increased 29.8 percent, from $264,602 in September 2010 to $343,497 in September 2011."

    I sold mine in Corral Springs (off n. University dr.) in the spring of 06. Wonder what they are selling for now? I know I was lucky to have sold it when i did.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
