I am not trying to belittle the people who have lost their homes, but I have to bring up one point.....
I have a friend who did mortgages for countrywide. He gave money to people, who used it for vacations, credit debt, home improvement, new t.v.s and
cars, boats. Whatever. So do all these people give me those toys while we all bail them out? this is all a part of life. Rent if you can't own. Buy
generic products. Don't eat out. At all. Buy a board game, used.
I know that there are some people who feel as though they are on the fringe. That their medical
bills/joblessness/sickness/anxiety/debt/depression/loss of family/addictions/and now homelessness, are symptoms of a myriad of problems that all
culminated in what they thought would never happen. Those that "rage against the machine" think of we who accept the losses and consequences of our
actions as being wealthy, white, homeowners.
I am a poor white renter. A PWR. Not a WASP, anymore.
I accept that If I cannot find steady work, I will camp out on a farm, working for food and saving whatever else they give me to eventually correct my
Suffering is actually a necessary part of the human condition. It breeds resolve, innovation, and adaptability. Those that are destroyed by average
hardships, lack the ability to help this world in the rare event that they were actually needed to. (think E.L.E.)
I just read what the guy above me posted.
I know that you will land back on your feet. On a larger and longer scale, you will be alright. Have you ever thought to go back to school, tweak your
skills a little? Humble yourself and tell these prospective employers that you will work below your expected income? Just wondering? Hope you moved
back in and rented it out!
