Making Homes Affordable?



The Making Homes Affordable program funded by the $787 billion stimulus Bill excludes people that own manufactured homes. I think this is unfair. After all, these people pay mortgages, taxes and insurance too. Lower income people, including the working poor, single parents, the elderly and the disabled, happen to live in manufactured housing and have been intentionally excluded from receiving mortgage assistance provided in the Stimulus Bill. That's right! You will be denied assistance simply because of the type of home you own.

The people that "played by the rules" and lived within their means are being penalized as they fund this bail out. Instead of purchasing a 3500 square foot custom home with a three car garage they couldn't afford, these Americans opted to live in affordable manufactured homes. As a result of the greed, irresponsibility and excesses of others, the economy tanked, forcing many of these people to get by on much less. The government has essentially abandoned every one of them. The media has gone to great lengths to make sure the public never hears of this aspect of the program. All we see are faceless numbers.

One may even go as far to say that the Making Homes Affordable program is racially biased. Economically challenged White People are often stereotyped as living in trailer parks or referred to as "trailer trash". The media wants us to think that these are the type of people that end up on the Jerry Springer Show. The term "trailer trash" was actually used by some so-called “well to do” people (probably pro-diversity Obama voters) at a Maricopa Unified School District meeting a few months ago. It seems that people that live in the newer subdivisions didn't want their kids going to the same school as the kids that live in the mini-farms area (my neighborhood). Many of the local residents were offended, and rightly so.

Jeff Foxworthy, a well known comic, frequently makes references to White People that live in manufactured housing as "rednecks". Regrettably, I once helped fuel this stereotype by taking a date to the gun show. I won’t do it again.

The current administration has effectively legislated many White People out of the "Stimulus Package". This should come as no surprise. As far as the government is concerned, the people that pay the taxes should never ever enjoy any of the fruits of their labor.

The Association Community Organizers Reform Now, better known as ACORN, has a website complete with links where homeowners can request assistance with their mortgages. On two separate occasions, I entered my information and upon submitting that information was advised that somebody would contact me in a couple of days to review my situation.

After three months, I have yet to hear from ACORN. I also called their toll free number and left a message. After many weeks, my call has yet to be returned. I determined that calling that number was a pointless waste of time. If you want to listen to a recorded message, ACORN's phone number is: 1-866-67-ACORN. My email to Bertha Lewis also went unanswered. I do, however, get email requests from ACORN asking ME for help on a regular basis.

One would think that a group that receives (maybe even ran off with) billions of taxpayer dollars should at least answer their phones and return messages. I guess that was expecting too much. Perhaps. I should drop by their local office and see if it’s a vacant lot or boarded up building.

And it happens that. . .

ACORN has received much criticism for allegedly participating in voter fraud in numerous states across the country. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Association_of_Community_Organizations_for_Reform_Now Can we really trust them at all?

I really wasn't looking to modify my mortgage. My place is still worth a lot more than my purchase price and I can almost smell the smoke from my upcoming mortgage burning party. I was curious to see if getting mortgage assistance was as easy as the "usurper" in the White House made it out to be during his telepromptered speeches. Those speeches where he said help was on the way. When it comes to politicians, empty promises are the norm. “Hope is for dopes” is the lesson I learned from this experiment.

The greedy bankers are the one’s still getting rich as Americans continue ‘feeding the pig‘.

I personally don't approve of the government spending "free-for-all" and feel that nobody should be bailed out. On the other hand, it appears that this money is going to the wrong people.

The average American isn’t all that good with math and cannot comprehend billions, trillions and bazillions. In algebra and calculus class, we removed the zeros and used exponents. Imagine exponential numbers on our future currency. “Do you have change for a 10 to the 6th power? With many people counting out ‘change’ from a jar at the end of the month, those sort of numbers have little meaning.

If you want to waste some time. . . .

We’re supposed to feel sorry?





According to the Washington Post, we are all supposed to feel sorry for somebody who unlawfully entered our country. We are supposed to look at his pathetic sorry-looking sad face in the article’s picture and actually relate to him? He’s not a victim! He’s “the enemy”, in my eyes. Sanchez and the rest of his kind are turning the United States into a Third World cesspool like the one they came from.

He put himself in the situation he’s in. This is not HIS country. He does not belong here, nor does he have the right to be here. The way I see it, he turned his back on his own people when he abandoned his country. Sanchez and his compadres lack the initiative and motivation to fix their own country. He’s what I’d call a “quitter“.
 
Outlaws in the U.S., Strangers at Home
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...071102799.html

When Sanchez, 36, arrived back in Central America recently, after living a third of his life as an illegal immigrant in suburban Washington, he stepped off the flight from Dulles International Airport into a cultural no man's land. He had been an outlaw migrant in one country; now he was a native-born stranger in the other.

This media propaganda is suppose to send a message to the World that we're a "mean country", a land of immigrants who now want to close the door to others. We're racists, oppressors, ethnocentrists, elitists and a whole host of other "ists". I for one, will never buy into this.

My relatives came here legally. They had “papers”. They arrived here on Halloween in 1906 from Bamfurlong, England (via Liverpool aboard Canard’s Caronia) They entered through the front door at Ellis Island. They didn’t sneak in the back way.

This really happened. . .

Late one night in 1996, Antonio de Antonio lost control of his recently purchased 1980’s model Chevrolet ¾ ton pick-up truck and crashed into the cacti in my front yard. Apparently, he missed a turn or something. According to his criminal history, he was working on his 4th DUI. He was visibly intoxicated when I met him in my driveway. To me, he was a potentially dangerous drunk trespasser who just damaged my property.
He stumbled out of the truck and found himself up to his chest in cactus needles. He was so drunk that he probably didn’t feel a thing. He left the door open, engine running, lights on and that damn Mexican polka music playing full blast.

Although I was holding a rifle, he continued to approach me. I ordered him to stop. He did not. The walking, or should I say staggering, humanoid pin cushion ended up bouncing his head off my rifle butt. He fell down, got back up and ran off. As it turned out, he hid in the neighbor’s home. (The same neighbor I had a previous problem with before their home burned to the ground.) A Pinal County Sheriff’s deputy arrived (the same deputy that arrested me for aggravated assault), took my report of the events that occurred and stood by for three hours waiting for the tow truck to come and seize his vehicle.

He had no business driving drunk in the United States at all. He had been previously deported. He should not have been here damaging my landscaping which I spent much time and hard work creating. Since I risked my life to earn a living, I took it very personally. Before he crashed into my yard, he was out on the road gambling with other people’s lives.

Approximately 12 Americans are killed every day by illegal aliens operating motor vehicles while intoxicated. Americans are safer in Iraq!

Carlos had no stronger link to home than his big brother, Adrian, who went north first. Carlos followed a year later, borrowing about $5,500 to pay the coyotes, the ruthless fixers who hid him in an empty tank truck for hours, sharing a tiny air hole with dozens of panicked migrants.

If this is how these ruthless people treat their fellow countrymen, how do you think they will treat us? With respect and dignity? I think not!

“And in that one fact lies the explanation of why policies which are destructive of everything that we hold dear, policies which are morally abhorrent to us, policies which have brought our whole civilization to the brink of ruin, have been promoted by the mass media and enforced by the government in Washington. In that fact is the reason why so-called "diversity" has become a new government-enforced religion …”
