Oh come on do you expect every one to publish their thoughts to prove what
they have said or thought ?
Did you notice that the writer of the article indicated that this was
coming. That was printed..
The trouble is that the people have no say. Elections simply apease some
But FIY I did see this coming.... Any thing the governmant does to force
help for those that have not earned what they are getting ends up in what is
now part of the $12 trillion problem. Plain as day....
Oh I don't think they are actually failing. They want the power and are
gaining the power every day. In our eyes they are failing but let me assure
thaey age doing exactly what they want.
Under this program described in 1999 when Clinton was President, I sold
a house. While I was able to purchase my next house with an interest
rate of about 5.4%, the person who bought my house finally got a loan
for over 11%. She was a beautician, he was unemployed, they had an 85%
debt to income ratio. With minimal income their monthly payment was
twice what I was paying.
The outcome of this type of financial deals was obvious when we sold the
house in 2000. We should be thanking the people at AGI, Fannie May, and
others for being able to keep the lid on this disaster for as long as
they did. They deserve every penny they got.
Instead, thank both your congressmen and the bankers who bought and paid
for them. This is provably by design, and not accidental in the least
... can you say "home equity loan"?:
My Christmas present this year from my youngest daughter was that she
would sit down with me and watch this, along with my commentary, and
with her full undivided attention.
In return, I couldn't think of a better gift I could give her than for
her to understand what most most of the ill educated fools in this
country can't seem to grasp.
You didn't give your daughter's age, but I'll assume that she
understood what she watched or that you explained anything she didn't
understand. And, that leads me to my question.
What did she say about the show and the current situation many now
find themselves in?

Keep in mind I've been preaching at her for 24 years, so she was already
aware of the fact that, unless you're wealthy, you _always_ need to know
to the penny how much money you have or someone is going to take it a
way from you, banks being the first in line through credit/debit cards,
usurious interest and fee structures.
Thus far, she has not fallen into the trap, but did mention that almost
all of her college classmates are drowning in debt, both credit card,
and student loan, and acknowledges that they have been conditioned to be
that way through the greed based machinations of bankers and their
bought and paid for politicians.
I am sometimes almost terrified at the utter naivete of us: you, me,
and all those others, our happy little gang of six billion nitwits. We
are so self assured in our petty knowledge. We always know, of
course, that we were wrong before, but are sure that we are not wrong

Some years ago a Cambridge MA resident was going to retire and move to
Alabama. He put his house on the market and called a realtor in his soon to
be new home town to set up appointments. When she heard the price range he
was looking for, she replied "I don't think we have anything in that range".
He ended up with a huge house on few acres on a river (dock and boat
included) with fancy gardens and still put a few hundred thousand $ in the
During the mid 70's home prices in Wichita, Ks skyrocketed for a
while. We turned a home at nearly 100% gain in price in about four
years (with about 20% of original cost in improvements). It has
settled to a "healthy" pace since then. Even with the aerospace job
losses the local market has not been crushed like other places. It is
slow, but still some building and selling.
