The tip of the iceberg. Where do you think the people go in the massive foreclosure crisis? To never never land? No. This is what happens. And it's only the start.
There is not a massive foreclosure crisis. It is a myth. 96% of homeowners are paying their mortgages on time.

This is people's own fault. I don't care what you're situation is. If you end up like this then it's you're fault. And I do realize that this is happening alot more. That's because everyone thinks they need to live like kings and queens. I gaurantee you if she was not living in such an expensive area that she would be fine right now. Oh lets just put it on our credit card. We really do need that huge SUV and that really nice tv. Don't forget our huge house that we can't afford either.
This is the people's fault. If we just took a little more responsibility for our actions we would not be where we are now.
It's ok though I got me a credit card. Why not buy it if I don't have to pay for it until next month right?

I have lots of *stuff* and help the homeless because I don't want them stealing my *stuff* or worse, getting violent out of a sense of desperation and malnurishment.
When will we learn that this has nothing to do with compassion, and everything to do with security?

Dear God, people, it does NOT matter what she did to get into this situation, but the very fact that she IS and is NOT ALONE ..... if that is not a sign of the times, what the hell is?!?!
