36 cents a day, that's all it takes

People of the world, we need your help. The USA runs a $811.5 billion annual deficit. We need foreign support to keep it going as is. With 6.6 billion people in the world and 300 million in the USA, we are looking at the other 6.3 billion people to finance this. We just need 36 cents a day ($128.80 a year). For 1/12th of a cup of coffee (at Starbucks), you can flourish the American dream for 300 million living in the good ol' USA.

Too easy to find properties in trouble in Santa Rosa, CA

I was just browsing redfin.com and found that more than half of the houses listed in a few areas of Santa Rosa, CA were losing a lot of money. A chunk of them have been listed for over 90 days. Most of the ones that were not in trouble didn't have sales records, so who knows what the case is.
