Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac to delist from NYSE

NEW YORK ( -- Mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were ordered by their federal regulator to no longer trade their shares on the New York Stock Exchange, the agency announced Wednesday. Both stocks plummeted on the news.

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and its predecessor agency have overseen the operation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac since September 2008, when they were both placed under conservatorship, a form of control similar to what is found in a bankruptcy process.

Do you agree with the new law that says police don't need radar to justify you were speeding.

Encounter with City of Toledo Tax Investigator Mr. Flesh.

Yesterday I came home to find a letter from the City's department of taxation requesting either a call from me regarding my 2007 W2s, or copies of all W2's from 2004-2009.

I called without hesitating and asked Mr. Alex Flesh Jr. why. (An appropriate last name for a tax investigator)

He informed me the reason for the letter was in 2007 I worked at a plant that I did not pay city taxes for. he knew the place of employment, so he could have googled it and found I used to work in Holland, Ohio.

I informed him of the location, and he wanted to know if I paid Holland taxes.

Next Up-Amnesty!


IMO, next up in the hopes of riding on perceived momentum, will be total amnesty for any and all illegal aliens. The democrat party is bleeding votes, and here is a new source to be mined by desperate, soon to be gone socialists. Watch for amnesty to be "fast tracked" ASAFP.

The Battle for Health Care Might be Over, Now The Battle For The Country Is Beginning.


As we watched the extent socialists went to, to continue taking a large part of the country over last night, there's no more guessing as to what to expect in November. The average person now knows what he/she's dealing with as the progressive/communist aparatchiks continue trying to herd us into some sort of peoples' republik. Independents, Conservatives, Constitutionalists, and such need to know how serious this socialist consortium is, and how they will resort to absolutely anything in November to try to strengthen their position.

ABC News says Kaptur one of undecideds

So I'm watching ABC news and see a picture of Mousy Kaptur and the president. He's got his arm around her, and ABC News is calling her one of the undecideds. Her position on abortion is the sticking point for her and a number of democrats. She's used her membership in my parish for years as a reason to vote for her. The final version of the house bill has been posted. The abortion funding is still there. It's time for Marcy to do the right thing. Have you called her office? I have. You can join me or try to offset me, I don't care.

Drive foreign while married to Senate Majority Leader

The wife and daughter of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) were involved in a serious accident today in Virginia. Apparently Mrs. Reid has both broken neck and back, while his daughter has lesser injuries. I wish both a speedy and full recovery.

However, I must point out the irony to those here on Swampbubbles who whine about autos from foreign makers, even if they are built here in the states.

The Reids were driving a Honda Odyssey minivan.
