ball gorund homes: Chrysler goes Chapter 11 - 05/01/09 07:24 AM
It was a sad day yesterday when I saw that Chrysler went Chapter 11. I remember the first time When MR. Iaccoca went to DC got a loan and turned the company around. That was a great moment and a great partnership between Government and Business. Yesterday was just a sad event. In the end the saddest part may have been the Hedge funds that would not come to agreement over a settlement to keep Chrysler a float. The President looked genuinely pissed off. In the end I think the hedge fund managers greed and short sightedness will prove this victory (3 comments)

ball gorund homes: Here we go Again !!! - 09/17/08 06:59 AM
Well the Feds are now in the insurance business. We are bailing out AIG. Naturally the price of oil goes up again today. This whole thing amazes me. The idea that if you are big enough and screw up bad enough some one will save you is now the new motto on Wall Street. Too bad Lehman Brothers you weren't big enough to get help. Her is the real issue . YOU CANNOT DEREGULATE THES GUYS as others have suggested. Why ? Because when they screw up you and I are called on to bail them out. If you deregulate then (11 comments)
ball gorund homes: LISTEN CONSUMERS !!!!!! - 08/30/08 10:58 AM
I answered a Q&A writer today. And it strikes me that folks making probably one of their biggest investment decisions do not use a professional Realtor. It just amazes me . For aches and pains you go to a doctor. For a car you go to a mechanic. If you are buying a used car for 2,000 bucks you say, "can I have my mechanic look at it?" But for a 200,000 home you go in blind. Then when things do not go exactly as planned I read your questions here on Active Rain . So I ask myself WHY ??? (4 comments)
Prices in the North Georgia mountains are holding steady. Yes there are foreclosures and some short sales. But over all prices are steady. Now the opposite side of this is the length of time it takes to sell. This has ballooned to over 100 days in many cases. This is an average so you know there are some properties that are well over this. A sign of building slowdown can be felt here. North Georgia is the carpet capital of the US and a force world wide. The low value of the dollar always aides this industry. It makes (0 comments)
ball gorund homes: Big Canoe Update: New Sconti opens - 07/15/08 07:59 AM
With much fanfare and not a little controversy the new club house is open. The reviews, despite the Pollyanna proclaimations of Smoke Signals, are mixed. I have eaten there once. I have found the food to be good. The staff to be friendly and trying hard. The value to be good. Having said that. I have also been turned away when there were obvious seats available. The menu selection is limited and the staff needs more training. Which all leads us to ask the question why didn't we contract the job out to a company that knew what they were doing?. (2 comments)
ball gorund homes: Independence Day. What does it mean ? - 07/04/08 10:25 AM
In a strictly political sense we are talking about a bunch of guys who said, What do we need your British for? But that is only the start of the story. We are very dependent. My main PC is on a work bench right now, talk about realizing how dependent we are !!! We are dependent on the power company water company etc etc . So what does it mean to be independent and what are we celebrating. We are celebrating the ability to think and have independent thought. We are celebrating the right to speak and act on more of (5 comments)
