    The Tax Assessment is $270,000, and the name of the registered mortgage holder is listed, but I doubt the amount of the mortgage is given? There could be only a $100,00 mortgage and $170,000 or more equity? Am I right???

    They could have put 10% or 20% down if they have good credit and finance the rest. The bigger the down, the less the bank carries, and the lower the loan payments.

    In the US, laws vary wildly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Not just state law, but also city regulations.

    In California, for example, if the building has tenants, the foreclosing party is required to honor the existing lease. In Texas, on the other hand, the foreclosing party can evict the tenant with 30 days notice.

    Wouldn't it be a hoot if there is enough of a smoking gun that Jeffrey can make a stab at getting Miscavige on the stand for this? What would Der Dwarfenfurer do? Shaft Marty and re-open that can of worms? Try to lie his ass off in front of Jeffrey (good luck with that)? Flee the country?

    Or would it be time for Bluebird Tech? :hysterical::hysterical::hysterical:

    There are a few big catches going on these days.. and many more to come.

    Blue, thanks for reminding me of a major confusion I had when I was in the FZ. I used to hear several people saying that "we" mocked up the physical or MEST universe (in my experience the two were used interchangeably).

    I never could understand, and still don't, exactly how that was meant to happen? How would an unimaginably large group of spiritual beings get together to first of all decide what to create, and then do it at exactly the same time (except that we didn't have time)?

    From what I recall, the people who said this didn't really understand it either but it didn't seem to matter to them.

    Maybe if you looked at it this way it would be clearer; You mock up the idea that you are mocking up the physical universe.

    Maybe that would work, except that it wasn't "you" in my post or in the one I was replying to who mocked up the physical universe, it was "we" or "a whole lot of thetans."Big difference.

    Mods, you might want to split this off into a separate thread; I think it could end up derailing the thread if more people reply to it.

    Homes are rarely appraised and assessed for full market value. You can safely assume that the subject property has a fair market value in excess of $300K.

    There can also be about a three year lag between fluctuations in market rate and tax appraisal increases or decreases.

    I like this comment by Jeffrey, it covers Scientology billionaire Bob Duggan or others giving Rathbun money directly as opposed to just trying to find out if only the "church" is directly paying him off:

    "If anything of value was received from anyone associated with Scientology, we want to know."

    If it was "We", then yes it was me along with everyone else.
