This Week In Newolitics

Obama Boasting America’s Financial Numbers

But why? 9.1% unemployment, Nothing good there.

A piddly 54,000 jobs added, nothing good there.

Home values crashing stock market crashing, nothing good there.

Have you gone to the super market for food ( can you afford to drive?) Nothing at all good there.

So what is this community organ talking about?

Lucky me, I’m absolutely broke, It’s 95* outside and I can’t afford to run the air conditioning, and we get to eat shit on a shingle for dinner so I have much to think about to be worried about what the commander and lair has to say.

On The Republican Side

Before Newt tossed his hat into the ring, the Republicans seemed to be bumping into each other.

However since then 372 Republicans have joined in the race and that does not include Palin.

What a mess, but time should level it all out.

As long as the economy stays the way it is or worse it really don’t matter who run’s against Obama.

How I wish Yogi was still around, oh I know Yogi is a cartoon but even a cartoon can beat Obama.

Wishful thinking I suppose.

Tables Turned

Deputies and movers show up at bank to seize property for homeowner

I got this from WINK/ CBS Florida;

COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – A bank foreclosure story you’ve got to see to believe. A Collier County couple turns the tables on Bank of America, the bank that tried to foreclose on their home. Now, the family is foreclosing on the bank! Even bringing trucks and deputies ready to seize property.

The foreclosure nightmare started when Warren and Maureen Nyerges paid cash for a home owned by Bank of American in the Golden Gate Estates. They never had a mortgage whatsoever. But, the bank fouled it up and wound up issuing a foreclosure through their attorney.

The couple took their case to court and after a year and a half nightmare the foreclosure was dropped. A Collier County judge said Bank of America has to pay the couple’s $2,534 legal fees for the error. After more than five months the bank still hadn’t paid up. So, the homeowners’ attorney did just what the bank would do to get their money, legally seize their assets.

“I instructed the deputy to go in and take desks, computers, copiers, filing cabinets, including cash in the drawers,” Attorney Todd Allen told WINK News.

Outside the Bank of America on Davis Boulevard, several deputies stood by with movers ready to start hauling out the bank’s office supplies and furniture.

Inside, the homeowners’ attorney was locked out of the bank manager’s office by deputies while the bank manger tried to figure out what to do.

Allen says the manager was visibly shaken, “Having two Sheriff’s deputies sitting across your desk, and a lawyer standing behind them, demanding whatever assets are in the bank can be intimidating. But, so is having your home foreclosed on when it wasn’t right.”

After about an hour the bank finally cut a check to satisfy the debt, and no furniture was taken. A representative for Bank of America issued a statement saying they are sorry for the delay in issuing funds. They claim the original request went to an outside attorney who is no longer in business.

As for Allen, he calls this a symptom of a larger problem he sees often in the courts, where banks don’t perform their due diligence on foreclosure cases. “As a foreclosure defense attorney this is sweet justice.

Sweet justice indeed.

Who Is It In The The Weinergate Photo Anyway?

Oh Oh Oh I Know!

Say it’s not so! A Sweathog? Horshack? Well that make sense.

Just Another Bar Joke

I Wonder…

A guy walks into a bar and asks the bartender for 10 shots of Chivas Regal all in a line on the bar.
Once set up the guy starts tossing the shots down, one right after the other until all ten are gone in quick succession.
The bartender is concerned and says, “Hey buddy you shouldn’t be drinking like that.  You should slow down and take some time to finish your drinks”.
The guy says “If you had what I have you’d be drinking like that too”.
The bartender asks “Well just what is it that you have”?
The guy replies “A dollar”.

Old Dogs

Age Has It’s Perks

One day an old German Shepherd starts chasing rabbits and before long, he discovers that he’s lost. Wandering about, he notices a Panther heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

The old German Shepherd thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in deep doo-doo now!”

Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the panther is about to leap, the old German Shepherd exclaims loudly,

“Boy, that was one delicious panther! I wonder, if there are any more around here?”

Hearing this, the young panther halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees.

“Whew!,” says the panther, “That was close! That old German Shepherd nearly had me!”

Meanwhile, a squirrel who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the panther. So, off he goes.

The squirrel soon catches up with the panther, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the panther.

The young panther is furious at being made a fool of and says, “Here, squirrel, hop on my back and see what’s going to happen to that conniving canine!”

Now, the old German Shepherd sees the panther coming with the squirrel on his back and thinks, “What am I going to do now?,” but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn’t seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old German Shepherd says…

“Where’s that squirrel? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another panther!”

Moral of this story…

Don’t mess with the old dogs… Age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery!
BS and brilliance only come with age and experience.

Of course, I am in no way insinuating that any of you are old, some are just more ‘youthfully challenged’.
