February 20th Meeting - Speaker: Leo Pavlushkin

Dear Friends,

It is hard not to notice the increas in the number of news reports regarding guns
in schools, accidents with guns and other generally bad news ("if it bleeds, it
leads" ... but only if guns are involved). There is another side to the story, there
are individuals and security professionals that use guns to protect and defend US
citizens every day. The Second Amendment is not about hunting, it is about our right
to self defense and protection against any form of tyranny.
Our speaker, Leo Pavlushkin, is one of those security professionals who has been
in the field in both public and private sector. He has worked for State and Federal
agencies where both physical strength and superior firepower is required.
I hope you can join us on February 20th.
Gregory Golyansky
J-GOP President

(an article from internet, thanks Karen K)
Here's a story about a real estate entitlement scam that was recently discovered
in Michigan. Just in case there are any doubts about who gets "shorted" on the
sale..... read on to the end.
Turns out to be a new spin on a frequently recurring plot, but somehow manages to
feature the usual victim: taxpayers.
We felt like this was the perfect time to share this IMPORTANT story with you. Recently,
our good friend Michael (a local realtor) shared his experience with Leisa and I
about an "Obama supporter" he encountered while showing homes to a low income,
working family in Pontiac, MI.. We asked him to please write it down so we could
for the past 28 years I thought I'd seen or heard it all... Until now. I was showing
homes in Pontiac, MI. one afternoon recently and showed up at a home at the 4:00
pm time my appointment was scheduled for. After I woke up the homeowner, she let
us in and then proceeded to tell my buyers and I that she has already entered into
a contract to sell the home on a short-sale. (A short-sale is a sale where the banks
accepts less money than is owed on the home).
After some chit-chat, she proceeded to tell us that she and her sister (who also
lived in the area) were buying each other's homes via the short-sale process. I
mentioned to her that I thought relatives could not be involved in those transactions.
She smiled and said "We have two different last names so no one knows the difference".
She went on to tell us that each of them owed over 100K on their homes and were
in the process of buying each other's homes for about 10-15K cash. To top it off,
they were each receiving $3,000.00 in government provided relocation assistance
at the closing. My buyers and I were amazed that she was outright admitting to
fraud and yet, she continued. She began to tell us that the best part of her scheme
was that because they currently were not working that they (both) are now receiving
Section 8 Vouchers.
I said I thought those were for renters and she said "That's the best part; me and
my sister are going to be renting each other's homes so we don't even have to move,
and Obama is going to give us each $800.00 a month to pay the rent!" She then picked
up a picture she had framed of Obama and did a little happy dance around her living
room and while she kissed the picture she was singing "Thank you Obama.... thank
you Obama." So here is the bottom line... Both of these scammers got at least $80,000.00
in debt forgiven, $3,000.00 in cash for relocation (when in fact they did not relocate)
and to boot, you and I will now be paying (through our taxes) $1,600.00 in rent
for each them each and every month.... perhaps forever! Is it any wonder why so
many people have decided that all they have to do is VOTE for the Democrats and
they will be taken care of for life at the expense of the taxpayers? I would not
be at all surprised if they are receiving food stamps and whatever other programs
are available for anyone who is willing to lie to get assistance.
These women went from working and paying about $900.00 each in mortgage payments
to staying home and getting paid $800.00 each per month to live in the same home
they had been living in and all they had to do was lie on a few papers. This craziness
has to stop! I'm sure this kind of fraud is going on each and every day all across
the country and no one wants to touch the subject of entitlements because they might
OFFEND someone or lose a vote or two. By the way... she had an almost new SUV in
the driveway, three flat screen TV's and a very nice computer set up in her living
room which was furnished entirely with nice leather furniture. I'TS THE NEW 'AMERICAN
WAY'..... For all of the "do-gooder's" who voted for Obama to help the "less fortunate",
