    FHA Loan Actually Approved: This One Is For the Books! A Must QQ

    This is a REAL true story that was sent to me by a friend. I'm sure it's published somewhere. A fun read for sure!

    "A New Orleans lawyer sought an FHA loan for a client. He was told the loan would be granted if he could prove satisfactory title to a parcel of property being offered as collateral. The title to the property dated back to 1803, which took the lawyer three months to track down. After sending the information to the FHA, he received the following reply:

    (Actual reply from FHA):

    "Upon review of your letter adjoining your client's loan application, we note the request is supported by an Abstract of Title. While we compliment the able manner in which you have prepared and presented the application, we must point out you have only cleared title to the proposed collateral property back to 1803. Before final approval can be accorded, it will be necessary to clear the title back to its origin."

    Annoyed, the lawyer responded as follows:

    (Actual response):
    "Your letter regarding title in Case No.189156 has been received. I note you wish to have title extended further than the 206 years covered by the present application. I was unaware any educated person in this country, particularly those working in the property area, would not know Louisiana was purchased by the United States from France in 1803, the year of origin identified in our application. For the edification of uninformed FHA bureaucrats, the title to the land prior to U.S. ownership was obtained from France , which had acquired it by Right of Conquest from Spain . The land came into the possession of Spain by Right of Discovery made in the year 1492 by a sea captain named Christopher Columbus, who had been granted the privilege of seeking a new route to India by the Spanish monarch, Queen Isabella. The good Queen Isabella, being a pious woman and almost as careful about titles as the FHA, took the precaution of securing the blessing of the Pope before she sold her jewels to finance Columbus' expedition. Now the Pope, as I'm sure you may know, is the emissary of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and God, it is commonly accepted, created this world. Therefore, I believe it is safe to presume God also made the part of the world called Louisiana . God; therefore, would be the owner of origin and His origins date back to before the beginning of time, the world as we know it, and the FHA. I hope you find God's original claim to be satisfactory. Now, may we have our loan?"

    The loan was immediately approved.

    And you want Government running health care?"

      If only working with bureaucrats were "that" easy! I was expecting a "Prove God exists response." It was a nice laugh!

        Interestingly enough, as I was scanning and uploading to our History site, a copy of a Diary of Robert Raymond Reid, Territorial Governor for the Territory of Florida, before it became a state, questioned the Louisiana Purchase:

        "Where in the Constitution does Mr. Jefferson find the authority in 1803 to purchase Louisiana?"
        "To go bravely forward is to invite a miracle."

        "Worry is the darkroom where negatives are formed."

            I hope the FHA underwriters do not find out. i mean, no FHA purchases would be valid in Louisiana!
