    Thank you for posting that, Pam!

    My biggest hope is that the mainstream media and the American People won't dismiss this story as being trivial and unimportant, but I suspect that the vast majority will.

    After all, right now we have more important matters to discuss.....like fake military documents, swiftboats, Michael Jackson's trial and Lacey Peterson's fetus. <_<

    Yeah, well, Dee Dee! Some things are just more important than whether or not some previously middle class / working families are now on the bread line because of a bunch of crooks.

    As long as the idiots reading about that stuff dont belong to one of those families, that is :huh:

    Phil - Sir --- You are so correct - THANK YOU

    It's a real shame that people can't pull their heads out and see that there is day light out here. Stop listening to the BS of everyone else and research the facts.

    Soap Box kicked out the door - hand extended for slap.


    Oopps - too late - you must move faster. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    NPR had a bit on Real Estate, Mortgage and Appraisal fraud today. Some report out from the FBI that it is happening big time all across the country. I think they said into the billions of dollars. How they were starting to look at in a big way. It was on here (WIS) around 3 p.m.

    Just maybe!! :idea:

    Fox News just came out with the story ....

    I was in Jacksonville today at an all day USPAP for the Appraisal Institute.

    Something tells me we will be looking at a rewrite....

    They are going to do away with Summary, Restricted, Limited - after 10 years -

    of failing - this will happen in 2008.

    Honesty can not be legislated
