California Voters say "No" to Tax Deficit Cure! Tea Parties Rock on! - 05/21/09 04:58 PM
Well, It looks like both Parties are sick and tired of Taxes and Overspending in California..will the rest of the Country follow next? No more taxes was the message to the California Government yesterday. Our Tea Parties are effective, America is fed up with the Governments unaccountable reckless spending so keep on Tea Partying... I heard a great quote regarding the Tea Parties from Glenn Beck today when he quoted this from Ghanndi on "Victory- First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they attack you and then you Win!!!" Here is a part of the article from (3 comments)
New Appraisal Laws Slowing the Market - 05/13/09 11:45 AM
According to a recent new Law by the Federal Reserve Board, the appraisal market has been hit with lower fees and new appraisal rulings.1.Appraisal Fees that the Banks are charged have been reduced from $400.00 to $200.00. Which means that the Quality Appraisers are leaving the market since they will not reduce their income by 50%. 2. If an appraisal comes in low by an appraiser the bank can only have 2 appraisals and they have to take the lower one.The result is that the banks do not have enough appraisers to process the current loans so we are being advised (3 comments)

Did you Know Your Friends & Neighbors are now Dangerous Domestic Terrorists! - 05/09/09 12:36 PM
Add your name to the group of 63885 people who have already signed using the Internet to demand a retraction! Pro-Lifers are Not Domestic Terrorists: Demand a Retraction Does this include all Catholics and Christians or just a choosen few?

This is issue is a major wake up call to all Americans that this can not be allowed in America. Even if you don't agree with the issue, if you allow this law to be passed you are allowing the Government control over your choices. Please (11 comments)
Torrance Developement Halted on Palos Verdes Border-Economic Whiplash - 05/07/09 01:18 PM
Interesting Daily Breeze article I ran across. Locally, I guess we have our own issues to worry about from the economy. I heard yesterday on Glenn Beck, Fox Nation that some developers are bull dozing their projects in California and saying that the Land is worth more than the completed projects. According to this Wall Street Journal article, it looks like we have another whole set of problems to deal with from lack of bank financing. According to the Daily Breeze article some residents near the closed Sunrise Project not only had the soil tested to find Silica, normal to rock quarries but a potential carcinogenic. Some residents (0 comments)
