    Is Congress Responsible For Anything?

    Congress writes the laws (rules) that everyone is expected to live by but when those laws (rules) cause major problems it’s never Congress’ fault. It’s as if, once the President affixes his signature or a law is passed by veto override, Congress is immediately absolved of all responsibility.

    The Minority Report Leadership Jets to Vegas for Blogworld! + Bailout Update

    Full disclosure: I like neither John McCain nor Barack Obama, and do not plan to vote for either one. I supported Ron Paul in the primary elections. I do not yet know who I’ll end up voting for, but since I vote in NJ, it doesn’t really matter. So ban me if you want, or delete this post if you want. It’s your website, and | Read More »

    What happened to personal responsibility?

    Please tell me why I should feel bad about this: Ralph Stover has good credit and a steady job.But he took out a risky interest-only first mortgage and a second mortgage to buy a new 1,900-square-foot condominium in 2003 with no money down. Now, the 52-year-old Columbus man is scared he could become another casualty in the ongoing housing meltdown.He paid $170,900 for his three-bedroom, | Read More »
