From the wild opening scene through the heart of this story, Courageous, reveals the story of five fathers, all in law enforcement. One is a bit protective of his kids, yet has a healthy family relationship. Another has abandoned his girlfriend and their child before the little girl’s birth. A third is a Hispanic worker struggling to find his role in a country where his work permit doesn’t necessarily allow him to earn a living. A fourth is divorced, with visitation rights. The final father is the lead in the film – a dad disconnected from son and daughter because he prioritizes his job above his family. When tragedy tears into the circle of five friends with the death of a loved one, the men begin a journey to connect and build into their kids and wives. In stark contrast to these family men, the plot intersects the police officers encounters with a gang. The story weaves in information about the role and influence of fathers in our society. It identifies hard facts about the correlation between “missing” fathers (those who’ve left the home and those still in it) and kids who turn to crime. The movie is a call to accountability. It speaks to the role of men and their responsibility in raising strong, healthy kids. Courageous offers great action, plenty of humorous moments and some very difficult scenes which will evoke a variety of emotion responses from the viewer.

Recapitalizing Fannie, Freddie not viable: Treasury official

A senior U.S. Treasury official on Friday rejected calls to recapitalize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, saying it would take at least 20 years to make sure they were adequately funded and that in the meantime taxpayers would be on the hook. In remarks to a housing conference, Treasury Undersecretary Mary Miller repeated the Obama administration's call that the two so-called government-sponsored enterprises be wound down. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which buy mortgages from lenders and repackage them into securities they sell to investors with a guarantee, were seized by the government in 2008 as loan losses threatened their solvency.
