I’m sure I’m going to catch hell for this. But it needs to be said…..
The banks made it easy for just about anyone to get a home loan. Good credit/bad credit, just about anyone who had a job. You could get a loan for a
home. The banks should not have allowed such leniency. They were out to make a buck! AND they made a lot of it!
But at the end of the day, Americans put themselves in this financial mess! One thing I’ve learned over the years is to live to my means! We live in
a society where everyone want’s this, that, and everything else! If you can’t afford it, then don’t buy it! If there is one thing that Americans
lack, it is the ability to manage money! Is it really that vitally important for you have to keep up with Jones’s? I still have everything! And
it’s not because I have an awesome job, it’s because I learned how to manage my money wisely! I have a brother that makes $200,000 a year as an
engineer. He has everything that money can buy! Now unfortunately, he is so far in debt that he has to claim bankruptcy! The banks gave you the option
to sign on the dotted line for that home loan! But at the end of the day, it was still you who signed on the dotted line! YOU made the decision! No
one but you! The banks should have made it more difficult to give the loans, but they didn’t. EVERYONE wanted the American dream! EVERYONE! And most
people were willing to do just about anything to have it!
Though somewhat unrelated, I thought I would address this as well….
As for the issues concerning jobs…When I hear that people can’t find jobs out there, I just want to throw-up! The fact of the matter is that there
are MANY employment opportunities! Just NOT the ones most of these dead beat lazy azzes are willing to do! I could have easily sucked unemployment
dry! But I didn’t! I don’t even make a fraction of what I made! Not even close to what I made in unemployment! What happen to America working hard
for anything? When I hear people whine about they’re unemployment running out after 2 years, I find myself embarrass! Embarrassed that my fellow
American can’t do what’s right or true anymore! There is a difference in WANTING something, and there is a difference in NEEDING something! I have
2 children I love very much! It doesn’t matter to me how big my house is, the car I drive, shoes I ware, people I know, etc... As long as I can work
hard for something, give my kids a warm safe happy place to live, food in their mouths, than I am happy! If you have to be on unemployment for over a
year, than I consider you a welfare sucking reciprocate! If you can’t step up in life, than move out to another country that will provide the world
to you for free! Oh…What am I thinking? That is already happening in America!
