Fuck Frannie Mae, Too Little, Too Late

I just read the below on Propeller.com, 90 Year-Old Woman Shoots Self Inside Foreclosed Home

A 90-year-old Akron, Ohio, woman who shot herself as sheriff's deputies tried to evict her from her foreclosed home became a symbol of the nation's home mortgage crisis Friday. Addie Polk is being treated at Akron General Medical Center after shooting herself at least twice in the upper body Wednesday afternoon, her city councilman said.

On Friday, Fannie Mae spokesman Brian Faith said the mortgage association had decided to halt action against Polk and sign the property "outright" to her. "We're going to forgive whatever outstanding balance she had on the loan and give her the house," Faith said. "Given the circumstances, we think it's appropriate."

Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, mentioned Polk on the House floor Friday during debate over the latest economic rescue proposal. You can learn more about this tragic incident in the CNN video below.

If I own a home that's in foreclosure and I shoot myself, you'll forgive my outstanding balance and give me the house outright? A few near fatal shots to my body and I become a homeowner again with, I assume, great credit? In my book, this constitutes economic terrorism, right here in the good ol' U-S-of-A. Un-fucking-acceptable, unless Bush is charged for attempted murder.

Are you really bothering with voting?!

I WANT PALIN'S VAGINA REVOKED!


After watching the debacle that is Palinoscopy during the veep debates, I have vowed never to eat apple pie again.

She doesn't deserve ownership of her vagina. The vadgeotricity living between her legs should be removed asssssapy.

During one of her many shitviews with Katie Couric, Palitler claimed herself a feminist because she hunted and fished alongside her brothers while growing up, and has a family and a career.

I don't know a single feminist who would regard charging a woman for a rape kit and making abortion illegal especially under extenuating circumstances, or who would go out of their way to espouse and institute laws that diminish a woman's equality, a feminist. She's the anti-feminist. And if she thinks true feminists are fucktarded enough to fall for her, she's grossly mistaken. Conservative women are speaking out against her. Conservatives.

The idea of an inarticulate, folksy, hokey, misogynist, power hungry dumb ass like Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency is terrifying. Her inability to answer direct questions by responding with nonsensical answers and chalking it up to only having been at this vice presidential thing for 5-weeks was offensive. She's clueless about federal and state policies, unless, of course they're about Alaska. Winking, disingenuously smiling and claiming her goal was to speak to Americans fell flatter than a split-ended head of hair.

During her interview on Fox News, she said she was irritated by Katie Couric's questions and that she wanted to speak about the real issues. Schmuck. Katie gave you a million-and-one opportunities to address real issues (Supreme Court Rulings, the economy, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Bush Doctrine, etc. etc. etc) and you chose not to (cause you didn't know). You fucked up because you're an epic fucktard. Blaming the journalist in this case was so republican.

I fell out, yo, when Palin, a journalist major couldn't even name one new source she turns to. Saying people think Alaska is a foreign country-- what the fuck was that?!?! Since when do Americans think of Alaska as traveling abroad? PS: I wanted to say, "Ya nevah heard a' the fuckin' internet, cuntress?"

Biden was brilliant, articulate and answered every question directly, honestly and thoughtfully. He came across as very much an average guy who is an advocate for equal rights. I loved when he claimed Cheney as the most dangerous vice president in history. He was sooo right. Stating his intentions to ensure the role of the veep follow what was outlined in the constitution, not what was amended by Cheney was exactly what I wanted to hear. I know exactly what Obama and Biden stand for and what they will do for this country. They actually have working class and middle class Americans best interests at heart. The presidency isn't about their agenda, it's about giving our country back to us. Yet, I can't figure out how McCain and Palin differ from the Bush Cheney regime. If anything, they want more power. They won't be happy until they've run this country even farther into the ground than it already is and overturned every single civil liberty we have.

Letterman's Top 10 Things Overheard at Sarah Palin's Debate Camp were hilarsquared.
10. "Let's practice your bewildered silence."
9. "Can you try saying 'yes' instead of 'you betcha'?"
8. "Hey, I can see Mexico from here!"
7. "Maybe we'll get lucky and there won't be any questions about Iraq, taxes or health care."

6. "We're screwed!"
5. "Can I just use that lipstick-pit bull thing again?"
4. "We have to wrap it up for the day -- McCain eats dinner at 4:30."
3. "Can we get Congress to bail us out of this debate?"
2. "John Edwards wants to know if you'd like some private tutoring in his van."
1. "Any way we can just get Tina Fey to do it?"
