The Batman vs. Superman Complex

I’ve come up with this grand theory about people leaving Milwaukee for places like Houston and Atlanta. I call it the “Batman vs. Superman Complex.” Batman was a locally grown hometown hero. He had money, power and success. He could do what he wanted, but he chose to stay home and fix his community with all of those abilities. On the other hand, you have Superman, who had to move from where he was born because his planet was about to explode. But, when he got to his new home, he developed extraordinary powers that, if he had stayed home, wouldn’t even be noteworthy.

Many African Americans in Milwaukee face those same options. Stay in Milwaukee and save it from the things that can destroy it (lack of educational funding, poverty, hyper-segregation, mass incarceration, the menacing caravan of Subarus beginning to show up near North Avenue) or leave Milwaukee and move to a place where their abilities are way more powerful, accepted and nurtured.

Worried you can't get a mortgage in time? Ribbon will buy the home you want for you

Ribbon announced Thursday that it raised $225 million in a combination of debt and equity financing. According to the company, it plans to use the money to expand into 10 new markets by the end of 2019 and more markets after that.

The company launched in Charlotte, North Carolina, and has since expanded into Cary and Asheville, North Carolina and Fort Mill and Indian Land, South Carolina.

The company said that it is “focused on markets where homebuyers are having the hardest time securing their new homes and face stiff local competition from investors and corporate buyers.”

The company claims that its process gives homebuyers a greater than a 90% chance of having their offer accepted, while also saving thousands of dollars in cash discounts and receiving a 100% on-time closing.

“Buying a home is a milestone to be celebrated and enjoyed. However, if you are a first-time homebuyer or you need to sell your existing home prior to buying a new home, the current homebuying process is an intimidating and stressful experience,” Ribbon CEO Shaival Shah said.

Do you support Congress's bailout plan, or the House Republicans' bailout plan?

Here's the bullet points directly from the House GOP plan:

* Rather than providing taxpayer funded purchases of frozen mortgage assets, we should adopt a mortgage insurance approach to solve the problem.

I like the Republican's plan a lot better than the Democrat's plan, but what I really want is for the people who got loans they should not have received to go bankrupt and the bankers who issued the loans prosecuted for fraud.
