Pakistan Near Collapse?

With suicide bombers killing scores in Iraq and Afghanistan and Pakistan near collapse, the policies of George W. Bush are coming home to roost. Had he not decided to start a war with Iraq long before September 11th and had instead concentrated on getting those who attacked us we would not be looking at the real possibility of those loyal to Osama Bin Laden taking over a nuclear armed Pakistan.

How can anyone still defend the Bush administration. They destroyed our standing in the world and left a world more dangerous than the one they found. Many members of this administration should be trading cigarettes for their lives in a maximum security prison. The mess these criminals left behind will be with us for a generation. We must as Americans demand they be held accountable and must look under every rock for the truth no matter what that truth tells us. Its time for the Obama Administration to make an example of these crooks.

U.S. existing home sales fell 3.0 pct in March

The pace of sales of existing homes in the United States fell 3.0 percent in March to a much lower-than-expected annual rate of 4.57 million units, the National Association of Realtors said on Thursday.

Economists polled by Reuters had forecast home resales to slip to a 4.70 million-unit pace from a revised 4.71 million for February, which was initially reported as 4.72 million.

The inventory of existing homes for sale fell to 3.74 million from the 3.80 million overstock reported for February. The median national home price rose 4.2 percent to $175,200 from February, boosted by seasonal factors. However, prices fell 12.4 percent compared to the same period a year ago.
