"The U.S. government - meaning us, the taxpayers - recently bailed out Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, yet the CEOs of each of these organizations received a $14 million bonus. That is $14 million for the bonus for the CEO of Fannie Mae, and $14 million for Freddie Mac's - $28 million. Something is wrong here, if we have to bail out somebody who's getting bonuses like this. " "Item in the paper about Hemphill and Rooke leave an opening for all workers to go ahead and take companies' money - you won't be prosecuted.

Today's housing news usually focuses on home buyers and sellers. But a large number of Americans live in rented homes and apartments, and those renters are experiencing problems as severe as their buyer-seller counterparts. Problems in the capital markets have hindered construction of rental housing nationwide. As the supply of rentals dwindle and demand increases, it is becoming harder for families to find suitable rentals at affordable prices. "Despite a demand for our product that far exceeds the supply, affordable apartment developers are finding it nearly impossible to assemble the necessary capital to move forward with their projects," said Robert Greer, president of a firm that has long specialized in producing rental developments.

HAGERSTOWN -- Have you lost your job and are facing foreclosure on your home mortgage? Confused about how you will pay all of your bills? A panel of experts Wednesday night at the Washington County Free Library encouraged people not to delay in getting help. And there is free assistance, said panel members, who agreed to appear at the library to offer the public help in dealing with foreclosure.

Here are a couple of quotes from key leaders. Michael Petrie, chairman of Mortgage Bankers Association: "While our country currently enjoys record levels of homeownership, the down-payment hurdle is a major obstacle for low- and moderate-income and minority families who can afford the monthly mortgage payments but find it problematic to save for the down payment.

Rowland misses the mark on economics To the editor: What do 9/11 Truthers, President Obama Birthers and Columnist Tim Rowland On Financial Subjects have in common? They all have an imprecise view of reality. Rowland - again - wants us to accept his view of how the world works best. Some weeks back, it was having our local elected representatives get as much pork as possible, to compete with everyone else's elected representatives, to get as much state money as possible.

In the midst of the debt ceiling debate and continued economic uncertainty, it might be helpful to see how we reached the current situation. Are there any lessons for us? The economic crisis shows little sign of improvement after three years of significant government intervention.  This administration's attempt to solve the problem has been an abysmal failure. Blaming the Bush policies is not only wearing thin but stretches credibility. Yet, President Obama, with the support of the national media, continues to shift the focus to the previous administration.

Although they have never been known for being too shy to look at the camera and lie through their teeth, one cannot help but be awestruck at the unmitigated gall of the feckless, foppish Democrats who are trying to blame the Bush administration for this economic crisis! Those rascally Democrats never seem to weary of their specious tales of imagined Republican chicanery and, of course, the unasinous (stupid) left-wing media revels in its phony charges and plays them for all they are worth, which in this vicious campaign climate, is unfortunately, worth plenty.
