The cost of Sandy

will be about half of what Obama blew on Green Energy in 2009.  And the taxpayers won’t pay for all of the Sandy damage, unlike the 34 failed or failing Green Energy companies.

It sounds so inocuous

In case you haven’t been paying attention (like me) for whatever reason (I live in an apartment and have no intention of buying a house in the foreseeable future) there is considerable talk now of a foreclosure moratorium.  Give home buyers who are in over their heads a bit of breathing room.  Prevent the greedy […]

A public service announcement
