You can be an illegal alien with no legal way to earn money but we will still find folks dumb enough to give you a loan.

They are counting on the Feds to spit out a few more hundred-billion dollars of New Funny Money that will be used to bail out the Illegal Aliens who have been the bottom-up drivers of our latest False Economy called Real Estate Appreciation.

The .com rip of 2000 was small potatoes compared to what's coming.

But not to fear if you are an Illegal Alien as help is on its way.

Its the folks that sold their old home to Pedro and Lupe and bought Big McMansions in Dormer Ville, for they are going to have Big trubs real soon.

I believe the "No SSN Required" is to get the free quote.

Additionally, Resident Aliens can be issued an ITIN as well. Being Resident Aliens, they are elidgible to purchase a home.

Just thought that I'd clear that up.

Actually, a person's SSN was never intended in the first place to be an all-purpose identifier -- particularly by private sector interests. Seems to me they're holding true to the spirit, and possibly even the letter, of the law that was originally enacted as part of the New Deal in the 1930s.

Sunday Arizona Republic paper reporter talks with ILLEGAL Aliens who OWN a home and our now forced to sell (Yes they can buy a home here also).
They estimate 100 a Day are fleeing!
Why?
Because soon EVERY Employer in that state will have to verify workers immigration status and the Illegals are moving to other states where they can steal a job.

My Family/Friends there are thrilled that they will no longer have to compete with a third Worlder for a job or a decent paycheck or Health care or Schools or...

Surprise, Governor there is a Democrat.
Think Oregon is flooded w/ Illegals now...

Curious how right-wingers worship at the altar of capitalism and private enterprise and have little, if anything, to say about the sordid chapters in corporate America's sprawling and voluminously documented history of exploitation, fraud, environmental carnage, murder, not to mention opportunistic alliances with the most wretched (and lethal) political players on the planet, but ... BUT! When a lending agency offers loans without requiring SSNs -- loans that conceivably could be used by (horror of horrors!) Latino migrant workers -- Miglavs and Hickey go apeshit.

Daniel if at all possible could you provide a contact email? I have a response letter from Janet Carlson that I would like to share with you regarding 287 g. Thanks!

anonymouse 830 PM, when I read your post I was inspired to pick up my ukelele and play "the Internationale".

My guess is that you're most likely a college student, and your liberal professors and peers have pumped you full of a bunch of B.S. with big words to make it sound legit...

OR


You are a College Professor who is simply too stoned to realize the world works differently than you want it to.

For what it is worth - Lendingsaver.com, which is where the image is from, is simply an advertiser for lenders. I'm sure they hook you up with a lender that will (unless it is B of A) require a SSN.

Jim in KFalls said...

...oh one more thing...I don't think I would want a company that does advertisements to have my ssn information anyway...again for what it is worth...

Didn't you get the memo from Bill O? The topic for today's discussion is Senator Craig and his toilet tricks: Here is the latest:

Three out of Four Republicans Surveyed Prefer Dick

A recent survey revealed that most Republicans still support Dick Cheney as Vice-President, while George Bush's poll numbers have apparently gone flaccid. In fact, Cheney's approval numbers continue to remain rock solid despite a spat of spectacular sex scandals rocking the GOP. The most recent surrounds Republican Senator Larry Craig's arrest in a men's airport bathroom. While potentially incriminating on the surface, the Idaho Senator offers a turgid alibi for his behavior, which apparently wasn't fear of flying.

Denying that tapping his right foot, blocking the stall door with his luggage and grabbing the undercover officer's leg was a signal to engage in lewd behavior, Craig suggested that he was merely asking for "toilet paper". Later providing the arresting officer with a business card that identified him as a senator, Craig does admit that telling the officer, "Excuse me while I whip this out," may have been a little suggestive in a men's room setting.

Senator Craig's encounter is only the latest in a daisy-chain of events placing prominent Republicans in the dim spot-light of public toliets. Florida Republican Bob Allen is said to have offered sex to a black, undercover officer in a park restroom because he didn't "trust him". As if that excuse and $20 isn't bizarre enough, Allen also sponsored a bill to crack down on soliciting sex in public parks. If you read between the lines, it's apparent that Allen is an advocate of just giving it away, rendering the need to solicit a moot point. As for the $20, that apparently was for stimulating the local economy.

When you add other prominent Republicans like Representative Mark Foley and evangelical Ted Haggard to the strange brew of recently fallen, staunchly anti-gay politicians, you discover the one thing they all have in common: they all like Dick. Sure, Cheney probably appreciates the support and a variation on the old "I Like Ike" buttons might garner special interest attention. But without the comic genius of Karl Rove, it's going to be tough to parlay the virtual transformation of the GOP into the "Gay Old Party". Only Rove could exploit the biggest piece of political parody since Dave Chappelle portrayed a blind Klan leader who didn't know he was black.

"There are only two ways to fix this satirical situation," snickered, Bill Clinton's former political strategist James Carville. "Hand jobs to your critics and keep the jerks off the news." Clinton himself could not be reached for comment as he was reportedly, "Reorganizing his collection of chubby-chaser jokes from the mid 90's."

Curious how ANON 8:10 would make such a weird comment on this blog. There has been absolutely no shortage of criticism of corporate America here, B of A being the most recent example I can recall. Oh well, another case of a left wing hat wearer criticizing of a group he clearly knows nothing about.

Hey, while we are on the subject of corporate exploitation, anyone want to count up the dead bodies due to corporate exploitation and compare them to the dead bodies due to left wing government exploitation? Hmm, why is it that Saloth Sar, Mao, Hitler, Castro, Che and the USSR spring to mind when I think of mountains of dead bodies and yet, try as I might, I cant think of a single corporate run death camp.

"You buy this Hummer or its the death camp for you, bike riding swine!"

Why is it that when I think of mass extermination I get the ABC Wide World of Sports theme in my head:

"Spanning the globe, to bring you the constant variety in genocide, death and torture, its The Wide World of Leftist Government........ the thrill of extermination, the agony of communisms defeat"

Anthony DeLucca said...

Lefties are always up in arms about "Corporate Exploitation", blah blah blah...

When was the last time the left was up in arms about, oh I dunno, say....the MILLIONS killed by communism, or the thousands of murders each year perpertrated in the name of Islam.

Get your priorities straight. IBM isn't going to slit your throat, or put you in a Gulag. FORD won't toss a grenade into a womens academy. Wachovia never drove a car bomb into a crowd of women and children. Starbucks has never flown planes into buildings full of people.

That's sub-prime city, baby. Guess they haven't learned their lesson yet. I guess they are that desperate with the sub-prime bust in full-swing.
