What do you think of the surge of foreigners buying up our foreclosed properties while Americans are homeless?
Yahoo news reports a surge in foreign investors buying up the foreclosed properties. Is this good or bad, or a little of each? Or is it sad that our country is becoming owned parcel by parcel by non-Americans while our own people live homeless in tents?

NonAmericans control and fund the Democrat Party, Soros, Huffington, Amanpour -- that all started a long time ago, because people like you keep politicians in office who have created an invasion of the USA through immigration. Well done. You have yourself to blame.

It is truly amazing. It is uncanny how events now are almost directly reflecting events during the Carter Administration. Back then, everyone was lamenting how foreign investors were "buying up America", too. We had a feckless president, problems with Iran as well. Carter even put solar panels on the roof of the... More
