Is this like a couple years ago where the police were pulling people over for driving well to giveRead More them some kind of $20 dollar gift certificate (maybe it was even less). I know I thought that was crazy. Police offiers shouldn't be able to just pull people over who are not breaking any laws. What if these people have schedules and things they need to do. And especially if their job entails punctuality, etc.. I know I would hate to me stopped for driving well and have my time wasted for 10-20 dollars.

Minorities and first time home buyers were targeted for fraudulent loans. Their real estate brokersRead More assured them that they qualified and could afford loans that they did not understand. Often there was a language issue. If you have ever bought a home you must know that the legaleze and the mounds of paper create a difficult climate for even the most proficient English speaker. Yes, there is fault on both sides but the fraud was perpetrated by the lending institutions. Also many foreclosures came not because the homes were too expensive but because the owner's income changed.
Anthony June 5, 2012 at 04:12 pm
No, it was all Americans that where targeted by lenders who did stated income stated asset loansRead More (which made up 60% of all loans at the end of 2007) which allowed individuals to borrow against current residents and buy new home that they wouldn't have qualified for under normal underwriting guidelines... now we verify everything... just hope it not to little or to last...
Nick Whitten June 7, 2012 at 12:07 pm
Sharon again, personal responsibility...you lay it all out there and then put a giantRead More "but" on the end, negating all the facts you so perfectly stated. There is no but, and no surprise its minorities that make up the majority of those getting this "bale out". No matter how you slice it it boils down to, "oh wait, because I had no idea what I was getting into now I can't afford my home, oh well someone else can pay." This is why our country is nearly flat lined...no more bale outs.

To clarify, there are five precincts in Manassas. Residents must go to their assigned precinct toRead More vote. You will not be allowed to vote in any precinct other than the one you have been assigned to. Voters who are unsure of where to vote can contact the registrar's office.
Erin Gibson April 29, 2012 at 02:11 pm
Thanks, Russ. The city's website has all the information pertaining to voter precincts andRead More registration information. Registrar's office contact information is also listed on the site in case you have questions. Here is the link: http://www.manassascity.org/index.aspx?nid=75
