Handful of state’s 1,700 special districts make comptroller’s ‘Leadership Circle’ for financial transparency | Texas Watchdog

Handful of state’s 1,700 special districts make comptroller’s ‘Leadership Circle’ for financial transparency | Texas Watchdog

The more than 1,700 special districts and 254 counties in Texas fail miserably to keep the people who pay the freight apprised of what they do to earn their taxing authority.
In a fine bit of aggregation, Texas Budget Source found that only 24 special districts have even provided any information to the transparency monitors with the state Comptroller while counties get a cumulative 'F' for their efforts to provide information to the public.

Death threat against Cynthia McKinney: Why is the FBI calling me? | San Francisco Bay View
What in the world would the FBI want with me? First of all, at 4:56 p.m. today they called me at my mother’s home while I was there, so I was able to speak with them. Then I was told that the four men indicated in the story below, which broke in the metro Atlanta news today, had listed me as a target for assassination. Attorney General Eric Holder and, according to FBI Special Agent-in-Charge Brian Lamkin of the bureau’s Atlanta office, President Barack Obama were also targeted.

Foreclosure : The Most Troublesome Time of My Life

Article by Brandon P. Reed


Recently, I had to walk away from the most prime possession my life, my home. I ran into financial problems due to the weak economy and started falling behind on my mortgage payments. After missing the first mortgage payment, the lender started harassing immediately. 

Then after three consecutive miss payments the lender started to threaten foreclosure. I then made the mistake of trying a loan modification and to no avail I wasn't qualified. I haven't met many people in foreclosure who were qualified for modification. Bankruptcy was unaffordable, so my next step was to try a short sale. 

I worked with a realtor, who for reasons unknowing to me couldn't get the sale done. We tried for seven months to get the short sale done. In the meanwhile I started losing hope, I was embarrassed to the fact that me and my family could possibly be on the streets soon. So at this point I stop contacting the lender, due to the fact they seemed so rude and they weren't in business to help me save my home, but to continuously make me feel subhuman. 

. Eventually that day came when I started to receive tons and tons of mail from attorneys and other foreclosure prevention specialists, claiming to help save homes. My wife and I came to the conclusion that all this wasn't worth the stress and we vacated the property. We feel so much better now, we are starting to slowly recover financially, and we have found new love.

Pew Report on Young-Old Wealth Gap is Misleading and Divisive; Could Fuel Intergenerational Class War | | AlterNet

A new study purporting to show that older households are doing much better than younger ones in terms of wealth and income threatens to spark an intergenerational class war, pitting Americans of different ages – people who have all been devastated by the crash caused by Wall Street's recklessness -- against one another. But there are serious flaws in how the research is being interpreted.

How Mississippi's Vote Today Could Put Pregnant Women Under State Control | | AlterNet

Tuesday’s ballot initiative in Mississippi regarding a constitutional amendment that would grant fertilized eggs legal personhood is polling right down to the wire, with 45% of Mississippians favoring it and 44% opposed. Gender influences opinion on this initiative somewhat, with men favoring it by six percentage points and women opposing it by four percentage points. Race and party affiliation has even more influence, with Democrats and African-Americans registering around 60% opposition to the amendment. This suggests that the racial and class-based aspects to this amendment that have passed national attention aren’t passing the attention of Mississippi voters, and hopefully fear of this law will be enough to keep personhood for fertilized eggs from becoming law.
