  Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using Highland Park TX FHA 203k Loans.     The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) offers a special government loan program that a lot of people are not aware of.

  Welcome to the highly sought after community in the Dallas, TX Metroplex of Highland Park! A brief history…In 1837, after a savage Indian battle, the remnants of a Texas Ranger scouting expedition camped in a lovely spot along “the creek with all the turtles.” These survivors were the first recorded Anglo-Americans in that area that is now known as Highland Park.  In 1913, the Town was incorporated by a vote of its residents and the evolvement of present day Highland Park began.

   An economists' concept and term that everyone should be aware of and understand, at least by definition, is known as Broken Math. Broken Math refers to the fact that the US national debt has well surpassed the annual Gross Domestic product, resulting in massive deficit spending. That will further increase the debt, almost surely demanding more and more interest payable each year, as interest rates are already presently at historic lows and likely to rise. Two years ago, the interest on the debt was 2.159% according to treasurydirect.org while GDP increased at a lesser 1.5% annualized rate ... despite Congress, the Fed & the Treasury conspiring to pile on an extra $100B per month to the debt from their deficit spending.  'Markets' are manipulated regularly via the Fed's invention of m...
