Comments on: Fannie and Freddie are more complicated than that http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/02/21/fannie-and-freddie-are-more-complicated-than-that/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: hemingwaywu http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/02/21/fannie-and-freddie-are-more-complicated-than-that/#comment-86341 Wed, 28 May 2014 02:28:42 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=28313#comment-86341 No Enteral Flame has ever been erected in Arlington National Cemetery for these brave dead American Soldiers, no mention of their sacrifices in any American High School History Books, no President, Senator, or Representative has shown any public display of gratitude for their courage in this conflict, all those who were there and died have been all but forgotten but in 3 years the world will come to know the truth.

President Johnson was suspected of the JFK assasination by conspiracy theorists and the conspiracy to keep quite the USS Liberty Massacre for the last 50 years came on President Johnson’s shift so is there a link between the two conspiracies with the same man involved?

I believe it’s 117 Right? So then the year 1967 plus 50 years would equal the year 2017 right?

And the year is now 2014 so in 3 more years the American Freedom of Information Act allows the world to view the first Photographs that must be made public of the USS Liberty Massacre where Israel ordered its Army, Navy, and Air Force to destroy our American war vessel by bombs, Torpedoes, Strafing, and Shooting the American Officers and Enlisted Men in International Sea Waters that immediately killed 37, and wounded 170 that have died and been dying from their wounds in the 1967 Israeli 3 Day War.

No Enteral Flame has ever been erected in Arlington National Cemetery for these brave dead American Soldiers, no mention of their sacrifices in any American High School History Books, no President, Senator, or Representative has shown any public display of gratitude for their courage in this conflict, all those who were there and died have been all but forgotten but in 3 years the world will come to know the truth.

Fannie and Freddie’s have missed 5 and a half years’ worth.

For one $25 share, that is about $11.35 that these shareholders will never see (not to mention compounding) which would push the amount over $15 – so, these holders have already paid and sacrificed to the benefit of the American taxpayer. It is high-time for the US government to pay an annual amount of about $2 billion to Fannie and Freddie’s (combined) preferred shareholders that had invested $34 billion.

As for the common shareholder, the reduced dividend of .05 (5 cents) per quarter would cost the government a combined $360 million per year on Fannie’s 1.1 billion shares and Freddie’s 675 million shares.

Fannie Mae reported earnings of $7 billion in one quarter today. Freddie’s earnings are due soon. Both expect to be profitable for the foreseeable future.

We are talking about a very small bone – at most $2.5 billion from earnings that will approach $40 billion in 2014.

Thanks, Ralph for standing up for shareholders’ rights!
