Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

But if everything is already under construction, there is nothing that can be done. I have been involved with a lot of bid projects and there are always cost overruns. In fact, the contractors live for the over runs as it is how they make extra money. The words will be "change orders" and everyone will just have to bend over. I stick with my original post above, this project, if passed, will go…

If this was a responsible persons car it would of not got this bad, they would of took care of these issues as they came along, rather than waiting to dump 3 grand in at one time. But just for the sake of argument It sounds like this car has about 200,000 miles on it and its probably worth about $800, because cars don't hold their value especially when they are ragged out. So yea this is a no…

Illinois dodges extra mortgage guarantee fees

High level of foreclosures helps means state doesn't meet criteria

From Chicago Tribune:

The Federal Housing Finance Agency is increasing the guarantee fees that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac charge for mortgages they acquire, but Illinois will not be assessed an extra fee because of the high level of foreclosure activity in the state.

A year ago, the agency, which oversees Fannie and Freddie, proposed maintaining an extra guarantee fees in five states -- Illinois, Florida, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York -- that had extra-long foreclosure processing times. The FHFA said the extra ‘adverse market’ fees on newly acquired mortgages were necessary to cover the extra costs of managing the foreclosure process in some states. The fees were first put in place in all states in 2008.

On Monday, the FHFA announced it would increase all guarantee fees by an average of 0.14 percent on a typical 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage and by 0.04 percent on a 15-year, fixed-rate mortgage.

In addition, mortgages acquired in Florida, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York will carry an extra guarantee fee of 0.25 percent. Illinois, the agency said, does not meet the revised criteria for the extra fees.
