    in Real Estate

    4-30-16 Saturday's TMM - Are home values at risk of falling?

    in Real Estate

    With home values going up 27.5% since the housing crisis, some housing observers believe we could be in a housing bubble. I challenge that because there remains a very strong buyer demand trying to purchase a limited supply of homes for sale.

    Changing Your Life....Doing It Now

    in Current Events

     


    Fulton Atlanta is almost frightened about the way change is taking place in America and wants to ask the question to those we serve.....ARE WE READY FOR THIS/


    It seems like everyday, there is a news article on the radio, television or local papers about the economic woes of Americans.  There are more news items about crime, civil unrest, Race relations, economic justic and the upcoming elections ... Almost too much to keep up with.  


    IN ATLANTA...THERE IS A PHENOMENON OF CHANGE...IN THE JOB MARKET, SCHOOLS, AND HOUSING, AND CRIME.


    It is not surprising to see that housing, in Atlanta for instance, is becoming more expensive.  It's also not so surprising to see the cost of food and gas unaffordable....even though the prices go up and down each month.  The trouble is, there seems to be no easy solution....especially as the incomes of most Americans have not changed over the past decade.  In fact, unemployment is higher than ever....not shown in statistics are the hundreds and thousands who are not looking for jobs anymore.  Even college educated people have a rough time making ends meet!


    Add to that....the politics of the day?  How involved are you....will you vote....will you participate in solutions?


    So let's listen, call in or simply talk with those we know?  Ask the question....What will we do if this trend of inclining costs of living continues?


    We"d love your feedback.  We want to further invite you to forums as we look for ways to HELP PEOPLE HELP THEMSELVES.

    Healing Northern Racial Hate: Sherri Bevel Examines Dr. King's Chicago Movement

    in Women

    It's one thing to be told that certain bathroom facilities are for "white only" and you have to use the"colored" toilet when down South. It's another thing to get beat up when walking through a white neighborhood and you can only live in certain areas of the city when in the north. A new book, The Chicago Freedom Movement" examines Dr. King's confrontation with northern racial hate when trying to end segregated housing in Chicago. Rev. James Bevel was a principal organizer in Chicago and the book examines much of his activities in the directing of non violent protest tactics. His daughter Sherri Lynn Bevel is our guest today to examine the effectiveness of the northern movement against racial hate

    The Gettin It In Show: Snap and Housing programs ending soon!

    in Radio

    More than 500,000 and as many as 1 million of the nation’s poorest people will be cut off SNAP (formerly known as the Food Stamp Program) over the course of 2016, due to the return in many areas of a three-month limit on SNAP benefits for unemployed adults aged 18-49 who aren’t disabled or raising minor children.  These individuals will lose their food assistance benefits after three months regardless of how hard they are looking for work.  The impact will be felt in the 22 states that must or are choosing to reimpose the time limit in 2016.


    One of the harshest pieces of the 1996 welfare law, this provision limits such individuals to three months of SNAP benefits in any 36-month period when they aren’t employed or in a work or training program for at least 20 hours a week.  Even SNAP recipients whose state operates few or no employment programs and fails to offer them a spot in a work or training program — which is the case in most states — have their benefits cut off after three months irrespective of whether they are searching diligently for a job. Will they cut off assistance for everyone? What would be our next step to survive?
