Fresh approaches to filmmaking

   

We don't typically get excited at the thought of smear campaigns and attack ads on iReport.com, but we'll make an exception for two fantastic videos from sketch comedy team WoodenNickel . They turned stereotypical campaign tactics on their head by lampooning both the upcoming election and the Blogosphere backchat about the redesign of Facebook. Check out their dueling "ads" for old Facebook and new Facebook . The pieces are creative and show off how a little video editing and a lot of imagination can go a long way toward creating inventive iReport stories. Do you see any opportunities to mash two different ideas together into something wholly different? We get some really good comedy pieces from time to time and they're pretty inspiring. If you've got a gift for gab, we encourage you to test your filmmaking mettle by making an entry in the iReport Film Festival . Funny or serious, anything goes as long as it's good. And while you're at it, visit the assignment desk and see if anything tickles your fancy.

Today on Cnn it is reported that Mc Cain tried to link Obama with two people from Fannie Mae and they were both looked into and there was not much there to support Mc Cain's charge ....however, Mc Cain has a man on his payroll Rick Davis who is his Chairman who has been receiving funds up to last month from Fannie Mae even though Mc Cain said he has not for a year.  Atlanta Journal Constitution says otherwise.....check this out...fact or fiction

Hello

All I want to say is my daughter and son in law had one of those cheap loans to get there home. But when my wife and me found out the details we about freak out so luckily we help them get out of that and into a fix loan this was back in February 08. Our credit union manger is the one that made it happen for them thank god.

 

    Also they received a call from somebody yesterday and were ask if they were losing their house because of that cheap loan.  She told them no and they were grateful she told them what is the government, doing now?

Bailout will not repay taxpayers !

The bailout will not repay taxpayers!  Nonperforming assets are defaulted loans on which the borrowers are in default for at least 90 days. Why will defaulted borrowers suddenly start paying their loans when the Treasury buys them from Wall Street and banks?  Treasury will have to foreclose homes, repo cars and boats and send credit card accounts to collections to recover just a fraction of the book value of the nonperforming loans. Holding defaulted loans long term will not make them perform. The bailout is a huge loss to tax payers!

CNN radio guy and many others keep pointing out that, No matter how wrong it sounds to bail out those that have caused this miss we must do it because the alternative will destroy the entire economy and you will be stuck with the bill one way or another.  Ok most of us get that, but it still does not make it right.  So lets do what many have been sometimes just joking about and other have taken very serious.  Lets give it to the responsible home owners who have kept up on their mortgages!  I know on the surface it sound pie in the ski but think about it.  This plan would reward those that have been responsible (Paying their own way, even if it meant taking on a second job).

 

Here is how it could work:

 

Pay off their mortgage plus $100,000 up to a max of $700,000 per person who has responsibly managed their mortgage.  This avoids rewarding criminals who caused this.  This will clear up millions of dollars for these institutions to now make new loans with and will boost the economy in a way as never before seen as people with paid off mortgages and an extra $100,000 buck in their pockets are going to buy new homes, pay off other debt, start a business, buy green technology such as cars, solar power for their new homes, and general spend spend spend.  This makes much more sense in the long run.

 

 

SPECIAL NOTE ; 

Up to $700,000 comes from numbers from other plans circulating on the Internet that suggest that $700,000 per person who pays taxes would be cheaper than the 700 billion planned bail out.

Start at the bottom of smallest mortgages and working you way up to those that owe more than 700,000 on their mortgages until the money runs out.  That way help the ones that need the help the most and will make the biggest impact on their buying power. 

I have also seen the plan to give everyone a million bucks but I don’t think you can trust enough tax payers to remain responsible enough to show up for work the next day not understanding that the will spend it all with out looking out for their long term financial security.

It's interesting that PAULSEN worked in the Board og Goldman Sachs, he is a CEO (or was) at several companies.  He's probably telling his"buddies" at these several companies that he'll bail them out.

 

What are we getting (taxpayers) probably a tax increase and promises.

 

IF WE STOP THE WAR IN IRAQ we will have several billion dollars every month back. 

 

So there GEORGE W. BUSH, our economy has many avenues to take, I dare you take this one.

 

TODAY.  It's urgent!!

Does anyone care when talented black leadership is murdered? what does it take to get media or law inforcement envolved or to take high profile cover-up seriously? How is it that corperate threats on paper and a dead body can still be covered up in today's scientifical community? Moreover, why is it that when evidence proves fowl play that no law informent agency will examine the records.... I say high profile racism

      • Forks , don't fight with WORD fight with the real issues.

 

 

The real issue in front us is I am surprised that EVERY CHRISTIAN ACCEPT WITCH HUNTER Palin .

 

 

Every one who watched VP debate HAVE heard that she IS NOT GOING TO CARRY ON Mcc 's  POLICY IF Mcc  DIED IN HIS OFFICE  , is that scary?

 

 

And everyone heard  well about she is sell herself  insted of sell Mcc's policy .... in another word she is not running for VP she is ruuning for President of United State. Shhe is HUNGERY ABOUT POWER AND CAN'T WAIT TO abuse IT  WITH HER HUSBAND.

 

 

The real issue urgent to us is I am surprised we accepted a saggy Governor who 'ABUSED HER POWER '

 

 

She is not a WASHIONTON OUTSIDER she knows how to FOLL and LIE to American.

 

 

She knows how to use her power to make the builder built her house for free; she knows how to make the goverment pay for her SUV....forks, this is only 19 month old Governor but she already full of WASHIONTON INSIDER's quality .... she is a ambucous woman no one can in her way to her power even her disabled son can't ....

 

 

Dose Palin has some her OWN ???   She claim herself a ‘HOUCKY MOM’;  ‘THANKS BUT NO THANKS’ ; ‘ WASHIONTON OUTSIDER ‘ these are revealed lately was a lie. Today she started to copy Obama’s ‘ WE CAN’T AFFORT AN OTHER ….’ ; and she copy Biden’s word ‘ FORKS’ ……..

 

 

 

My question is : can she has some thing really from her own without copy others? Where she stands?  Dose she  has a BONE?

 

 

 

.......and those are important thing we must thing about it.

 

the more I think about it , she is insulting to watch !

 

 

She is like a clever marketing gimmick designed to fool people. But can you imagine her as President or representing us with other countries as VP ... NO F-CKING WAY !!!FOOLED ONCE SHAME you, FOOLED TWICE SHAME  ME.
