When many people say they don’t remember, what they really mean is they never knew.
A friend of mine emailed me the following, which definitely helps to explain my theory, that there are more village idiots in Washington, than there are in the villages.
In a bid to stem taxpayer losses for bad loans guaranteed by the federal housing agencies, Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), proposed that borrowers be required to make a 5% down payment in order to qualify.
His proposal was rejected 57-42 on a party-line vote because as Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn), explained, “Passage of such a requirement would restrict home ownership to only those who can afford it.”
It could only happen in Washington or Connecticut.
Where’s my Invitation?
In the past race for City Council At Large, here in Fort Wayne, one Democratic primary winner stated he liked to spend his time in his motel room, drinking and watching porn. Hmmmm, I wonder if his supporters were hoping to be invited over.
If you don’t stand for something, you’ll stand for nothing.
