  1. Why is the Indiana Department of Work Force Development/Work One so against providing education opportunities for the real estate industry (unlike the state of Illinois). I have also placed job opportunities at in the past, in order contract/employ additional real estate practitioners for my brokerage, and they refused to give scholarships or grants to those wanting to improve the foreclosure situation.

    I have enrolled in a college in order to survive since most my public assistance have expired. How many other real estate practitioners are doing as bad as me financially?

  2. Disclosing known material facts is a requirement that the state of Indiana imposes on my real estate license type (for example the information about Fluoride being a hazard at the epa’s website.

    I have approached many types of Doctors about my many symptoms, in concerning Dental and Skeletal Fluorosis. Why do I, a real estate practitioner, know more about this subject than they do? Why are the medical practitioners here in Fort Wayne, Indiana ignorant to these facts published at the epa’s website? Who is responsible for ensuring that medical practitioners are abreast of these medical facts and findings?

    Why do these medical practitioners continue write these symptoms of fluoride toxicity, off as being traditional diseases, and prescribe treatments that don’t work?


  3. What number and percentage of Homeless Assistance Providers can be classified as churches or faith-based organizations? Furthermore, since African Americans have the highest unemployment, high school drop-out, and homeownerships rates. It would be strategic if HUD’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships would partner up with OSNAP (Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs) in the empowerment of
    Black Churches located in the inner city as Homeless Assistance Providers in existing Continuum of Care movements around the country. Logically, this type of reform, should only occur in areas where the homeless rate is 50% or more African American.

  4. I like the “Making Homes Affordable” program to help people keep their homes. However, this program does not go far enough. If you want to stimulate the economy, then allow people with good to excellent credit to re-fi their mortgages at today’s low interest rates. I’m in a category that you are not helping:
    The last time I refinanced my home/property in 2005, it was worth $675,000. With the market now totally depressed, it is “worth” $315,000. I owe 340,000. I’m under water. I can’t refinance because I have no equity. If I could, I would save $600 a month based on today’s lower interest rates. I’m not asking for anything but a better rate. The money I would save on the mortgage payment would go right back into the economy. I’m sure there are many others in the same boat. Please help…I didn’t miss a payment, I didn’t take out more than I could afford. Why should I be penalized and miss out on these rates?

  5. Every body knows that modern life is not cheap, however some people require cash for various things and not every one earns enough cash. Therefore to receive good loan and just short term loan will be a proper solution.
