Re: Interesting new mortgage scheme

I don't see how this is subsidized by other borrowers? If my house goes down 30,000 it's my equity that is lost (and possibly the banks). There's no insurance here at all.

Re: Tea Party Activism at its Finest

Hmmm... Sarah has a habit of sticking her foot well into her oral cavity. Blood libel - a phrase that other conservatives have also used in recent days - was her way of decrying liberal critics who had tried to draw a connection between Palin's campaign rhetoric and the Tucson shootings. But it also...
