It's fun stuff really, an intellectual dialog: "Federal government is out of control and frankly the majority of Americans simply don't give a damn because they are too stupid, lazy or receiving entitlements and don't care who pays for it." ~ Chris Janelli from his blog, "The Scarecrows Needs Brains."

In August of 2008, Mark Greenberg signs a contract to purchase a $4 million resort home issuing a $100,000 deposit. On three separate occasions, Greenberg was unable to close on the property and the Realty claimed his deposit. Greenberg sued and lost. Now see, here's that difference again. The average working person would say to themselves, "Damn, I really screwed up!" Mark Greenberg counters, "They're trying to cheat me!" He appeals, claiming as a Real Estate developer from New York City, he didn't know what the word "strata" meant. There was also in the inspection report, a reference to a bent water main valve. There, that's the reason we didn't close! But Greenberg didn't bother to check if the valve was even on his property! It's the legal equivalent of my dog ate my homework. It's a Hail Mary play; maybe you get a favorable ruling to reopen the case. Then you use your money" I mean your freedom to prolong it.

But the court answered "no" and the clock ran out, ruling against Greenberg and the judgment for $600,000 stood, plus his own legal expenses. This is what I mean by entitlement, you and me and probably everybody we've ever known in life, couldn't have fought a half-million dollar legal case for the return of a $100,000 deposit.

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that (more...)
