IMO,many should NOT have had those houses to start with,sorry.
It's not your "God given right" to own a home,especially is you put no money down when you buy it and they knew that you couldn't afford the
payments when you filled out the paperwork(low doc of course) they so graciously steered you through for a house that was probably MUCH more than you
I own my home: I worked hard and put a percentage down when I bought it,it was something I could afford,and I paid it off in my lifetime.
I'm a dinosaur,I know.
I think what they should have "done" was to not instill even more of an entitlement attitude to a segment of society that was ill-equipted to cope
in order to further their own greed-soaked agenda.
I am all for these peaceful demonstrations that at least let the people in power know we're not all drinking the Kool Aid.
Hoping they will in fact be peaceful and make a statement that can't continue to be ignored...isn't that what "Democracy" is all about,the
people's voices being heard?
