acworth: Is housing UP or DOWN? - Yes - 07/29/10 04:37 AM
Cooking the books with the Fed's?
I wish it were a search for the next top chef on HGTV, but this is much more than than that, and it's real life. I had two separate updates in my email box today on the same subject.  The May housing report for new home sales was widely reported as about 300,000 (which was already bad news) then quietly  downgraded to 267,000.  The June reports are out now and there is widespread claim of a 24% increase!  However this increase only recovers about 50% of the loss from the month before!

acworth: Acworth, Ga. Home Values are up! - 05/21/10 05:25 AM
Acworth Ga. Home Values are up! While I don't think that Zillow is incredibly accurate, I do think it is a reasonable indicator of what is going on the market. Below is a 10 year chart of Zillow home values for Acworth, Ga.  As you can see, if you bought your home as a long term investment, the recent value has declined but the long term value is still appreciated from the value 10 years ago!

acworth: Do you know the "Bush Doctrine"? Charlie Gibson Doesn't - 09/13/08 05:22 AM
According to wikipedia  "The first usage of the term may have been when conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer used the term in February 2001 to refer to the president's unilateral approach to national missile defense well before September 11th"     
Read the entire wikipedia article here
That's right.  The term was coined before the attacks of Sept 11 and before the policy of anticipatory defense. According to both wikipedia and to Charles Krauthammer there have been several different variants of "Bush Doctrine".  the idea of anticipatory defense is only one of them and not the most recent.  Read Charles Krauthammers article about Bush Doctrine and Charlie … (8 comments)
