I work with someone who has been trying to own a home. All the power to him on that.
Today he told me that under Obama's plan, he can get 8000 or 10000 dollars from the government since he is a first time home buyer and it didn't have to be paid back. (I don't know the exact details, it's just what he told me) As he told me this, he also mentioned that I should get in on this since I have never owned a home.
This is when I lost it.
I told him why would I do that? This is part of the problem. I don't want to steal money away from other people and why in the world would I risk buying one right now when everything is going to hell?
Well I just want to get what I can before it gets too nasty.
This set me off on a 20 minute rant. I am so damn ANGRY about everything that is going on.
Politicians are corrupt, we are being taxed far too much, are debt is way too high, unemployment is rising at an alarming rate, wars all over, people wanting things for free (When it isn't really free it's stealing!).
How can anyone put trust in what is happening? HOW?
