Front Page: Thousands Gather in Baghdad to Protest US Pact

  • Supporters of radical Shiite cleric Moktada al-Sadr gathered in Baghdad today to protest the security agreement that gives the US authority to remain in Iraq. More than 10,000 protesters attended, and some burned an effigy of President Bush. — New York Times
  • US Attorney General Michael Mukasey collapsed on stage Thursday while giving a speech. Officials say he is feeling better and never transferred his power as attorney general. — AP
  • Mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have decided to suspend home foreclosures until Jan. 9. The companies seized by the federal government do not want to bring more turmoil to struggling US families during the holidays. — Blooomberg
  • After another day of recounting, 46 percent of Minnesota's ballots have been counted, and the gap between Democrat Al Franken and Senator Norm Coleman has narrowed. Coleman is now leading by 136 votes, down from his unofficial lead of 215. — Minnesota Star

I think all of us responsible people should get something for not contributing to the screwing up of the economy!

MM lol me too. I kinda wish I didn't get a fixed rate... then I could just have them give me one now, and I wouldn't be responsible for all the months of missed payments... it would have been fabulous. And in regards to the recount... I definitely think something fishy is going on. They said that magically 500 ballots appeared out of no where with al franken / barack Obama names on them... 500 and no norm coleman... definitely fishy!!

I find it really surreal to see the Attorney General having a swooning fit. I hope he's okay.

The hubby and I joke that we should have just bought a house when we had the chance. Grr, damn responsibility!

Did they really have to burn an effigy of President Bush - anyone upset about this or outraged? I wonder what would happen if we up and got our sh*t and just left. I guess it's nice people in foreclosure don't have to up and move before the holidays; however, their holidays will still be stressed and worried trying to find a new place and make plans. It's just delaying the obvious.

Is anyone else getting really steamed about the fact that so many people are getting a personal semi-bailout via forclosure moratorims, renegotiated rates, etc...? I try not to take all things political personally, but as a potential first time home buyers who decided to wait and save money until we could afford something without taking out a crazy loan... well my husband and I are getting quite cranky about the whole thing. As for the recount in Minnesota - I have been following this really closely. Conservative commentators say there is somethign screwy going on statistically. What is taking so long?
