Couple alleges they were misled by builder on tax credit. — I’m curious how widespread this is/was.

A not-so-brief chat with Randall Stephenson of AT&T – This story was the subject of many, many discussions last week. It is an absolute must-read for an opinionated and blunt analysis of how and why AT&T sucks, the iPhone is great and America is on the decline. I’d post a snip, but that might prevent some from reading the whole thing. Please.

Self Reliance

These are the voices which we hear in solitude, but they grow faint and inaudible as we enter into the world. Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members. Society is a joint-stock company, in which the members agree, for the better securing of his bread to each shareholder, to surrender the liberty and culture of the eater. The virtue in most request is conformity. Self-reliance is its aversion. It loves not realities and creators, but names and customs.

Navigating the Continued Real Estate Market Turbulence

My point here is this; one of the great strengths each one of us has as real estate investors is that we have the ability to move very quickly. When the market or some part of it either shifts or is redirected by Government action we are able to quickly shift with it, make the needed adjustments and continue reaping our profits.

Can you expect continued redirection by the Government? Yes!

Can you expect further declines in housing values? Yes!

Can you expect that your favorite strategy may not be effective in 6 months? ABSOLUTELY!

Bottom line, stay limber and flexible, with more then one trick up your real estate investing sleeve. These times and our profits demand it!

The President’s Job Initiative Doesn’t Measure Up

No president in modern times walks a tightrope as exquisitely as this one. His balance is a thing of beauty. But when it comes to this economy right now — an economy fundamentally out of balance — we need a federal government that moves boldly and swiftly to counter-balance the huge recessionary forces still at large.
