Texas lawyers have assured us that every resident in Texas has a will because if you don't do your own, the state does one for you. In a world where all first marriages work and children of the family are the product of only one mother and the same father, it is bad enough. In a death complicated by multiple marriages, non-marriages, common-law marriages, yours, mine and ours families; and complicated further by community property, the default will provided by the state can lead to a legal nightmare. In the simplest scenario, lawyers tell us the widow will find the children outrank her on the division of the property. Children cannot execute documents, so their needs must be addressed by courts. If there are ex-spouses and their children in the picture, things can get very nasty indeed. In my almost a half-century of selling property, I have wanted many times to go dig up the deceased, grab him/her by the ears and shout, "What were you thinking?" Hie thee to an attorney and save your heirs a lot of grief. In court battles, the majority of your estate may be frittered away in legal fees--what is left over after the government (with increased taxes on estates) doesn't get to first. A good lawyer now can help you plan against that contingency. MusingsbyMarian do tc om
Amen. You would think that in a country having more than 318 million people, we could come up with better choices.
Long before the election for Obama's second term, George Soros was funding an attorney-general initiative. Heavily funded, easily-corrupted officials in swing states were placed in key positions in order to quash any objections to voter fraud. To see exactly how this worked, go back and look at the election of Al Franken. It is my understanding the criteria for throwing out votes changed from precinct to precinct according to the way liberals wanted to results to come out. They kept counting until they got their desired results. For this reason there is unlikely to be the "drubbing" at the polls Obama complained about in 2010. The voters of American are fast becoming like voters in a dictatorship. Their votes are allowed to erroneously given them the impression they are choosing the winners. it is nothing more than smoke and mirrors. MusingsbyMarian do tc om

Consider the "bucket of crabs" theory. If a crab in a bucket tries to make it over the top to freedom, the rest of the crabs grab him with their claws and prevent the escapee from making it. The right reverends Jackson and Sharpton lead in making sure crabs stay in the bucket where they belong. Of course they are not in the bucket; they simply slam the lid on whenever one escapes. That is why they hate people like Condolezza Rice and other blacks of great achievement who might challenge them for the hearts and minds of the young. It is why they call them derogatory names and keep them from speaking at universities. That is why they ignore the efforts of Eisenhower to instill true equality (remember he sent the National Guard to Little Rock High to ensure integration. Then comes Lyndon Johnson who not only got at the head of the parade and claimed credit, but started a welfare system designed to collapse black family unity. Sad, sad sad! MusingsbyMarian do tc om

A Russian newspaper described mindless followers of Obama as "sheeple." MusingsbyMarian do tc om
"History is written by the victors" has been attributed to people from Napoleon to Churchill, but perhaps Sir William Wallace said it best when he noted the victors had hung the heroes. Liberals/Progressives/Communists have been rewriting history and textbooks in our halls of higher learning for decades, so it is not surprising they made it possible to rewrite an encyclopedia. In Nevada a teacher was suspended for claiming the Holocaust never happened, but in California a common core class required students to write argumentative essays questioning the veracity of the Holocaust--a common core assignment, they claimed. No suspension of course in this case. MusingsbyMarian do tc om
As bad as liberals hated the cowboy in the White House, GW Bush, he did issue the warning, "Attack us and there will be retaliation." We were not attacked on our own soil during the rest of his term. The second attack on the World Trade Center might not have been necessary if Clinton had not wimped out and ignored the attack on the US Cole, etc and turned down the offer of another country to give us Osama bin Ladin's head on a silver platter. Since Obama has openly eschewed our role as alpha dog in the world and has fawned (and bowed) his way into absolute submission, we have been repeatedly attacked on our own soil. Changing the definition of terrorism to "workplace violence" does not change the facts. The embassy at Benghazi is US soil. If we do not get another cowboy (with a white hat) in the White House, we have secured our position as bottom dog. Has anyone noticed Russia has announced plans to reopen the spying facilities in Cuba? God help the United States. She needs all the help she can get. MusingsbyMarian do tc om
I have long advocated Texas send them to California. Then Pelosi can make more campaign speeches to them with raised, clenched fist as she did in 2008 as she shouted "Si, si, puede!" (yes we can.) As far left environmentalist turns California back into a desert with their policies; as liberals destroy the economy of California; as the state raises their percentage of illegal voters, California will soon look just like the Mexico the illegals fled in the first place. La Razda Unida (take back the land) is winning the war they have worked for so many decades--but only because they have so many Californians fighting to help them win. MusingsbyMarian do tc om
If the couple, NB, sold the lot and carried the note, could they use the payments received to pay for toward living in an assisted living facility? It certainly sounds like this would be advantageous as this point of their lives.They should check with their accountant, but aren't there some tax advantages to an installment sale of this type? If they buy again, they are still faced with upkeep, repairs, replacement of appliances, HVAC, etc. MusingsbyMarian do tc om
Catch and Release was once the theme of fishing shows on television. Now the term defines the policy of Barack Hussein Obama--who never met a terrorist he didn't like, protect and serve. When he said he would stand with Muslims against Americans in his autobiography, why weren't people listening? He said it; he meant it' and he demonstrates his commitment almost daily.
