Amityville Horror House For Sale (Anyone Dying To Buy It?)

The house made famous in the 1979 film The Amityville Horror is up for sale in New York - ghosts not included.

The five-bedroom Dutch Colonial went on the market yesterday for $1.15 million (£800,000).
In 1974, six members of the DeFeo family were shot dead as they slept in the house. The eldest son, Ronald DeFeo, called police to report the slayings. He was convicted of the murders aged 23.

When he confessed, he told detectives: 'Once I started, I just couldn’t stop. It went so fast.'

Captain Cajun To Obama

Democratic strategist and New Orleans resident James Carville is not relenting from his frenzied plea for President Obama to take a more direct and active role in addressing the Gulf oil blowout.

"The President of the United States could've come down here, he could've been involved with the families of these 11 people" who died on the rig after an explosion, Carville said on ABC's Good Morning America. "He could be commandeering tankers and making BP bring tankers in and clean this up. They could be deploying people to the coast right now. He could be with the Corps of Engineers and the Coast Guard...doing something about these regulations. These people are crying, they're begging for something down here, and it just looks like he's not involved in this."

The New York Times on the Credibility of The Fed

The Fed still has accepted almost no responsibility for its mistakes during the housing bubble. “Like other regulators, there were some things we could have done, at least with hindsight,” Ben Bernanke, the chairman, recently said. “But we had neither the mandate nor the tools to be the financial system’s supercop.”

Reading that, you might think that the bubble was evident only in retrospect and that, regardless, the Fed was powerless to stop it. That’s simply not the case. A fair number of people did recognize the bubble as it was inflating. The Fed’s leaders, by contrast, went out of their way to claim real estate was not in a bubble.

Imagine if Mr. Bernanke and Alan Greenspan had used their bully pulpit to point out how high house prices were relative to rents or incomes. Or imagine if they had cracked down on delusional mortgages, as their consumer protection powers gave them the authority to do — and as they finally did only after the bubble burst.

Despite the Fed’s failures, Congress is giving it vast new powers, largely because there is no better alternative. Most important, the Fed will decide how much debt banks can take on, a standard that will help determine how well they weather the next crisis. Yet neither the Fed’s leaders nor President Obama, who reappointed Mr. Bernanke, has explained why we should believe the Fed has learned from its errors.

Congress can do better. The Senate bill calls for an audit of the Fed’s actions during the crisis (which were, in fact, pretty heroic). Why not expand the time frame to the run-up to the crisis? The Senate would also create an independent unit inside Treasury, the Office of Financial Research, that could identify problems even if the Fed did not.

The more checks and balances on the Fed, the better the odds of avoiding another crisis. Fool me once, right?

You Know That Commercial Where The Guy Posts His SS Number On A Truck? ... Turns Out That Ain't Such A Good Idea!

Apparently, when you publish your Social Security number prominently on your website and billboards, people take it as an invitation to steal your identity.
LifeLock CEO Todd Davis, whose number is displayed in the company’s ubiquitous advertisements, has by now learned that lesson. He’s been a victim of identity theft at least 13 times, according to the Phoenix New Times.

Nice Mention Of The Show On Large Conspiracy Forum

This is exactly the kind of secular audience that I want to come to the show. They say some nice things about it ...but regardless of that, their interest in it is exactly why I do the show.

Superstitious Serbia (Sign Of The Times)

Seers of the future or charlatans of the highest order, whatever your view, many Serbian’s can’t get enough of the ‘advice’ delivered on TV, online and in person.

Serbians are a deeply religious people devoted to their Christian orthodoxy, but this devout nature is also deeply steeped in superstition which dates back to pre-Christian paganism and a culture of mythology, local folklore and superstition, linked together with customs and an oral storytelling tradition. Some of these traditions still live on today and have become incorporated into daily rituals of this country of believers.

California Budget And Housing Are Interlinked

On Friday the Governor gave a grim overview of the problems faced by California. The California budget is facing a $19.1 billion short fall ensuring a long and drawn out summer of politics and financial hocus pocus. The Governor even made a brief comparison to Greece for all of those who can’t connect the dots and figure out that having too much debt is a bad thing. Too much debt is what built the California housing bubble. Alt-A and option ARMs still languish out in the market. Even the boogeyman of toxic loans is being dwarfed by the problems in prime mortgages. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac keep issuing quarterly losses and going back to the government well.
