36. Thank you, bobbolink!
Come on down, there's squatting opportunities aplenty on this street!

OK, sorry, bad joke, but seriously, I think happy_liberal may be on to something worth pursuing. The houses on this street don't look anything like the picture of that gutted out house in TX. Most of them are vacant for the same reason as the one I'm in now. Shit, the house across the street from me has been on the market since we moved in, and the asking price is an unbelievable $34,900. It's bank owned (according to the county website) and the previous owner paid almost $100,000 for it back in 2002. I'd be willing to bet that the previous owners did not put down $65,000 down and then just walk away..... the greedy fucken banks are gonna end up taking it in the shorts anyhow (nah, couldn't work with the homeowners on a payment plan, but will end up selling in a foreclosure for pennies on the dollar to someone else????).

All the remaining TARP money could be used to hire people to rehab those homes that are still rehab-able (?) and turn them into something like "Habitat for Humanity" for all those homeless, and those at risk of becoming homeless.

At any rate, this may be a place to start. What do you think?

Take care of yourself, bobbolink!
