So, got turned down for mortgage. I am thinking of this as a blessing in disguise. I mean, for one thing, I don't even have where I want to be working completely worked out yet, but also, I just don't have the dough right now. So, this will give me an opportunity to regroup, draw up new battle plans, save some dough, clean up my credit some more and then get a house :)
Yes, all the pieces are starting to fall into place. I found a cute little apartment complex near my job and near TMC so I can be close to work and not have to drive thereby saving me gas money, which is REALLY necessary now.It's working out...I can see it all now. Plus, I saw a virtual tour of this place...BUILT IN BOOKSHELVES!!!!
sorry...i got carried away. ok...back to "work."

Get The Government Out of Our Wallets! (Except for the money.)
This post from Left2Right reminds me of something I once heard my father-in-law say about the federal debt :"By God, why should the taxpayers have to repay it? The government ran it up, let the government repay it.” Not too much later he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

Here’s the post, by MDS:

“As several of us here seem to agree, Social Security is a disastrous intrusion of the federal government that forcibly hijacks our money while pretending that we’ll get it back someday. Hopefully, more Americans will begin to see this, and we can move toward the liberty of personal accounts invested for us by the federal government, in investments that are approved by the federal government, and from the eventual proceeds of which the federal government will claw back the original investment plus its three percent fee. But every account will definitely yield much more money than this, because it’s invested in the stock market. That’s a guaranteed result that a government entitlement program could only dream of. Best of all, the transition costs can be financed by the federal government borrowing even more money from future revenues. Just as long as the federal government is kept out of it, I’m happy.”

I don't know whether to laugh...or weep.
