  • Yes, since Reagan was Pres.

    Try Johnson. Or if you REALLY want to dig deep in your analysis of the shape we are in today, start with Wilson.

  • LINKS Crapy,please.

    What is your obsession with links. I choose to research on my own. That way I'm not reading only what the person wants you to read - like your blogs that you call 'facts'. 

    I checked a foreclosure database for my home town. There were 2 pages of listings which means 40 properties. From that sampling, I think it isn't good for sure.

  • They are usually in the MLM listing and accessed through your realtors site... they stopped placing signs on them to prevent vandals... and I've seen some bank owned homes than being rented out because of the lack of buyers in California

  • We are letting my father's house go into foreclosure. He took out a 103k loan on a house worth 60k. It will cost us 5k to get it out of foreclosure and we would have to pay $1700 a month mortgage. So it's going to have to go. None of us live there and it's tied up in probate and probably will be for a long time. Wells Fargo can have it!

    The economy grew 3.4% a year

    Inflation rates plummeted

    unemployment fell from 7.1 to 5.5 as 15 million new jobs were created

    Prime interest rate fell by 1/3

    Productivity jumped 15%

    the S&P leaped 124%

    Charitable contributions expanded 57%

    All under Reagan
