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.
