Just yesterday, because my company announced changes to our benefit enrollment plans and opened up enrollment this week, I was having a discussion with a hard core lefty and Obama supporter about the fact that the costs have yet again gone up, the plan offerings have gone down, and providers have yet again been restricted. In addition to now making every employee with healthcare that has a spouse with access to her own plan (from … Read more

Recent steps by federal regulators make it clear: low down-payment loans, a feature of the housing market’s boom, are coming back.
On Monday, Federal Housing Finance Agency Director Mel Watt announced that mortgage-finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would start backing loans with down payments as low as 3%.

In the end both cases turned out to be bullshit stories, but the usual DNC mouthpieces in the LSM were all screaming about voter fraud and abuse, inciting their voter base – those that vote for a living, … Read more
Whisky Tango Foxtrot.
In case you don’t want to watch the video, a bizarre scene unfolded in the Florida Gubernatorial Debate. Rick Scott refused to come out for the debate because Charlie Crist had a small fan inside his podium. It looked bad and played even worse.
