from the link kwave posted "There's much in the OFHEO report to suggest that Fannie misapplied accounting rules to make both its earnings and regulatory capital look a lot stronger than they actually were. According to some estimates, Fannie may have excluded as much as $12 billion of losses from its income statement."

The thing that I find mind boggling is that FNM has been publicly reporting this BS accounting technique on their balance sheet for YEARS, and it is just now finally "noticed"..

After much soul searching, my family and I have decided we can no longer live in the United States. I have resigned from my job here in Ft. Lauderdale, and we will be moving back to Canada (Edmonton) within a few weeks.

My dissatisfaction with current U.S. foreign policy is causing a growing sense of unrest in me which is affecting my family, work, and social lives. I feel like I am being pushed increasingly to the fringes of mainstream U.S. society because of my belief in a world community of nations and my vocal dissagreement with the policy of unilateral preemtive strikes. The repeated advice from friends and colleagues that "if I don't like it, I should just go back to Canada" has had its effect. We shall do just that.

Welcome back Twig!

I feel your pain, Twig.

Make the best of it.

Thanks Plunger. Actually, now that the decision has been made, I feel relieved.

Several months ago I was layed off from my job and we considered leaving, but I felt like I would have been giving up - allowing myself to be forced out. Now that I have a job, and can make a proactive choice regarding the matter, I am at peace with the decision. A weight has been lifted. :)
When the last living thing has died on account of us, how poetical it would be if Earth could say, in a voice floating up perhaps from the floor of the Grand Canyon, “It is done.” People did not like it here.

Best wishes, twig.

Humans are hard-wired to sense and respond to peer pressure.

A curdled culture can be toxic to one's personal development. Sometimes it's necessary to re-pot yourself.

When will cfc holders realize that the mgt bubble is Over?
""Pretty bubbleheads preen daily on our financial networks, playing the shill to Wall Street and Washington in order to lure unsuspecting Americans into buying insanely overvalued stocks. The great market exchanges, once prudent arenas of investment where the engine of capitalism traded value for value, have become sham casinos staggering under decades of massive Fed created debt and lurching into oblivion on the greater fool theory. Yet our high level bureaucrats, led by Alan Greenspan, exhort all Americans to consume still more of their seed corn and seek still more fools." N. Hultberg

I can relate. Welcome back to Edmonton and a city of opportunity. There are few better places to raise a family and look for new endeavors.
