    Birthright Citizenship

    So what type of citizenship does that ruling pertain to? The child gained citizenship by being birthed in the US, wouldn’t that be birthright citizenship?

    To the Spineless Twit who Wrote NYT Op Ed

    Douglas Adams... “The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them. To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”

    Vote D? Why?

    "why" Personally, I am completely disgusted in both my state (Missouri....see Eric Greitens) and the national republican party. I have never simply voted a straight ticket but am seriously considering it this November. In the last presidential election the republicans nominated the only person that could require me to, in good conscience, vote for Clinton. They have done nothing in the interim to be worthy of my vote. "what will they do differently" Perhaps nothing, but I will not condone the last 2 years with my vote

    I agree, not a problem “unless you lose your job”. I did, company went tits up. My point is why we’re they pushing an adjustable rate product in times of low rates. It was only going to tick down a point or two max. Adjustable rate is a product for times of high interest. It was a con to earn the originators the highest commission. They knew better and still wanted to screw the customer.

    Not all of it. My experience in a refi was to have a interest only adjustable rate mortgage pushed hard on me (didn't bite) to the point of having three levels of executives call and try to sell me on that product. I have excellent credit and rates were at about 4 1/4%. They were pushing that subprime product because they could earn higher commissions on it. They made very convincing arguments for it. Someone with less knowledge very well could have bought in and ended upside down when the market went south.
