Via Nathan Tutas (Tutas Towne Realty, Inc.): I had a showing scheduled with a brand new buyer this morning. I had spoken with this gentleman over the phone and emailed a few times while getting him pre-qualified and he seemed like a nice enough guy. I met him at the first property we were supposed to see today. When he got to the property he introduced me to his wife. Again, she seems like a nice enough lady.
Before I could open the front door something came out of her mouth that absolutely shocked (4 comments)
Via Tim and Pam Cash - Clarksville TN Real Estate Professionals (Crye-Leike (Sango)): R-E-S-P-E-C-T find out what it means to me. How many remember this great song? It was first released by Otis Redding in 1965 but became the Signature Song for the great Aretha Franklin in 1967. While this may prove to be a bit of trivia information to use in your next game night, that is not what moved me to write this beautiful and chilly Clarksville evening.
Via Jim Frimmer, San Diego Mission Valley Realtor (Century 21 Award): I know there is a lot of controversy about global warming, mankind's part in the process, and whether or not the process is even occurring. It seems quite logical that mankind is having an effect. At the time of the last ice age, the population of Earth was a million or so. Now the population is approaching seven billion people. Add to that millions of automobiles, oil refineries, and manufacturing plants that didn't exist until just the last few centuries, and I don't see (9 comments)

The Foreclosure Scenario The homeowner on the phone was calling me to see how soon after a foreclosure they could hope to qualify to buy a home. "We're thinking about letting the bank keep the house, and renting until we're able to buy. We think it makes good financial sense, because our mortgage payment is $1,830. and we can rent a nicer house for $500. a month less (7 comments)
I for one, a God Loving, American Patriot refuse to throw in the towel for this President.... Every Poll still averages out to 49 approval and 48 disapproval..

Nine Presidents have made mention of the Supreme Court decisions in an unfavorable light But President Obama is joined with just three others who took direct aim ......during their State of the Union addresses: Harding, Franklin D.

Via Loreena Yeo - Broker|Realtor(R) of Frisco-TX-Homes (214) 783-2210 (3:16 team REALTY):
Some people have forgotten How to Dream while some people never dreamed. Not because they don't want to strive in life, but they always have "realities" to hold them back. But who's to say a Dream must be PERFECT and REAL? A perfect example would be the emerging singing talent of Susan Boyle. I know you have watched it several times by now. But if you would just take 7 minutes of your time to watch this clip again, I'd love to share my own interpretations of Dreaming: (2 comments)

Via Simon Conway (Orlando Area Real Estate Services): I came across something today that was released just before Thanksgiving. It is of Lt. Col. Oliver North giving a speech to the NRA.

Pants on the Ground...Remix version...# 1 Hit - 01/24/10 04:15 PM
For those of us "American Idol" fans caught up in the General Larry Platt age 62 from Atlanta Georgia..saga..... I predict this "cool" version will shoot this rising star in to the #1 spot on the Rhythm and Blues charts.....
So many times when we feel discouraged or downtrodden it can become so easy to feel lost, alone and on our own..... But it is in those times when all else seems beyond hope and failure seems imminent....that if we sit still before God we will hear His Quiet, ever present, voice speak to us whispering words of Comfort and Love... For it is never God who leaves us But we who leave Him...... I remember that long ago day when in an act of suicide I called out to God and said these words... "God I do not know (5 comments)

John Edwards and a lesson on Forgiveness...... - 01/21/10 03:39 PM
I was happy to see John Edwards appear before the news cameras today and take responsibility for Frances Quinn......his illegitimate daughter. After all she is the only innocent victim in all of this..... Hundreds of thousands of men and women have suffered the pain and humiliation of adulterous mates since the creation of mankind.... I find it sad and telling when I see a fellow SIN FILLED human using unfortunate situations to pounce upon other people with such venomous and vitriol hatred. But I must accept first and foremost that those who cast these stones certainly do NOT know the Lord (12 comments)
President Chavez also accused the United States of using the earthquake in Haiti as a pretext to occupy the devastated Caribbean country and offered to send fuel from his OPEC nation. He wants to know why over 3,000 Marines with weapons are roaming Haiti's streets. Chavez also says the troops are there in an undercover operation to takeover Haiti... Oh my, and we think we have problems with our president ?

Haiti already devastated beyond imagination with estimates of over 200,000 dead, 250,000 injured and high numbers still dying, and 1.5 million homeless received another devastating blow this morning....

For those of us in the ActiveRain community...whom are Christians....It is my hope that each one of us remember the reason for our salvation... Not only that we have the love of Christ within us, the forgiveness of our sins behind us and the Promise of His Heavenly Kingdom before us... But that we above all remember He gave His Life for all of mankind... He makes the sun to shine on not only the just but the unjust as well.....

Good Day for America..... - 01/20/10 01:01 AM
Today is a good day for America.....in my humble "little" opinion this is the Best thing that could have happened for our Country... Why ? Well, first off, for Massachusetts...... Coakley acted arrogantly, dumbly and it cost her dearly and rightfully so.... and the message sent to the White House ? It is a well needed Alarm Bell to get their Priorities straight... While Obama is doing good on his promise to bring the troops home from Iraq and he has tried to revamp the health care system (some think needs help) His administration has failed at getting people back to (15 comments)

Gallup Poll released Monday January 18, 2010 U.S. President Barack Obama's job approval rating during his first year in office averages 57 percent Compared with the first-year averages of other U.S. presidents elected to office since World War II, Obama's average ranks on the low end, tied with Ronald Reagan's, but better than Bill Clinton's historical low of 49 percent, said Gallup.

Since taking the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2009, President Obama has kept dozens of his campaign promises. Full story January 18, 2010 While on the campaign trail, Barack Obama made hundreds of promises. And throughout the president's first year in office, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Web site PolitiFact has tracked each one of those commitments.

I hope you will take the time to read the article in full ..it is well-written and very telling... In Defense of the Christian Liberal By Frank Lovato - a Christian Traits I have observed in the behavior of many political conservatives that irritate me is their absolute confidence that they are "right" about anything and everything and their misuse of the Christian religion to justify the inhumanity of many of their words and actions.

The two agencies that have failed security big-time are the Secret Service and TSA. The person in charge of both agencies is Janet Napolitano. She must be fired... or at the very least she must turn in her resignation.. PERIOD Get mad, Mr. President. Stay Mad........ Show us you are in charge of those around you.... words are not enough..... we need More Action..... Do Not give your enemies the ammunition (12 comments)
What's on your "to Do' List in 2010 - 01/06/10 12:07 PM
Determined to make 2010 my best year yet, I hope to blend my enthusiasm with hope as I set goals. armed with ‘to do’ lists, off I go.
For some of us, we resolve in the New Year to buy memberships to the gym, dust off our diet books and personal organizers, and vow to be more diligent in our time of worship. We develop a budget to get our “financial house” in order, and we read about living a “balanced life.” We’re bound for success, or so we assume. Wonderful intentions, yet we often seem to have difficulty (4 comments)
How about a dose of Truth? - 01/06/10 10:13 AM
This gal is great... this is 10 informative minutes....ENJOY...... Mr. Cheney, gave a statement to Politico.com today. Not decrying the terrorist incident itself, but instead using that attack as an opportunity to bash the president, to accuse the president of not keeping America safe. Republicans, left to their own devices, have in this case excitedly launched a series of obviously baseless, factually incorrect, demonstrably untrue and hypocritical attacks.
The gap is closing.........and as more and more people learn the truth of what is really in the bill as opposed to rumor, innuendo and outright Lies more and more people are favoring the reform.... Forty-two percent (42%) of U.S. voters now favor the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the most positive result since mid-November, but still most voters remain opposed. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of voters oppose the legislation........ Still a long way to go to get this bill passed...... keeping my hopes up...

2010.. The Year of New Beginnings..... - 01/06/10 12:42 AM
Remember those days? The innocence of childhood... Loves me...loves me not...loves me....loves me not...loves me... Oh, how I wish that each one of us could recapture even just a small, sweet remnant of those long ago days.... the fragrance of a new rose in full bloom.....fresh petals in an array of vibrant colors scattered along our path through life leading us to far away lands lined with fairy tales and fantasy....
Oh, so long ago discarded and replaced with a lackluster, dry and cynical view of those who think differently than ourselves.....dirt covered trails void of all color........leading no (2 comments)
Seven years of bellicose rhetoric - 01/05/10 11:41 AM
The following is an except from a news story on Politico..to read in full click on Ben Smith........ BY Ben Smith December 30, 2009 Categories: White House Pfeiffer responds to Cheney:
First, it’s important that the substantive context be clear: For seven years after 9/11, while our national security was overwhelmingly focused on Iraq — a country that had no Al Qaeda presence before our invasion — Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda's leadership was able to set up camp in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan, where they continued to plot attacks against the United (8 comments)
Seems some people think that God only Loves certain people... People that look like them...talk like them...think like them..... What they FAIL to understand is God LOVES EVERYBODY.... Good and evil comes in All shapes...all sizes...all colors...all languages... if there is to be "profiling" in an effort to keep us safe from harm...I say profile us as humans...each and every one of us... Not just Blacks...or Muslims...or Jews....But each and every one of us... because each of us regardless of race or religion has the capacity to render harm or to do evil ...... I refuse to be a (6 comments)
As we all begin the 2010 New Year I Pray we all recapture the excitement and the Hope felt within us when one night in early November 2008 we learned the News that Obama had just been elected the 44th President of the United States..... History in the making........ I am extremely proud of the decision I made to cross party lines as a Republican fed up with my party and cast my vote for this man... Much has been said against him.....most blatant lies and horrible untruths...some out of fear...some out of pure unfettered hatred..... But I am a (1 comments)
