C/W, the fifth largest mortgage lender in Amerika, closed down their ENTIRE sub-prime division--and laid off 12,000 people! In a word, GREED.
Now, the monster must be killed. But, there is a lot of "collateral damage" that comes along with it. Namely, the trend toward recession.
Since Spanish is now the official language of Amerika, my boy was taught to speak it before he even knew the difference. Illegal immigration costs LOS ANGELES COUNTY OVER 1 BILLION DOLLARS ANNUALLY (that's JUST LA County). I also have "third world country" practice day with my boy. That way, he is used to, and adjusted to, Amerika as a third world country.
We have the country that we have created--and deserve!
Yep "Give us your tired and poor" has a whole new cost, uhh meaning.
I was overqualified on my own salary for a 250,000.00 mortgage, even though I only wanted a very small, not much of a house in the 125,000.00 range.
Left Coast people I know you scoff and scratch your head on those numbers but here in Pennsatucky it will get you a small 3 bedroom, maybe carport/garage, and a bit of land. Location, location, location.
Anyway not my first house so I understood how it all worked and would not buy up, only down.
Yep going to be a bunch of fallout and only the working class is getting hurt.
It boggles my mind that we can spend the BILLIONS on this oil fight in the Sand, and not our fist dance there, and we have multiple dance mates there.
Yet we cant rebuild our OWN Cities after a Natural Disaster, we feed everyone but our own country, have our elderly working to pay for medicine after working all their lives to retire, have a run away heath care system, people loosing their homes after paying on them for 20-30 years only to find out the money was never paid to it, and unscrupulous LENDERS pushing young buyers in over their heads by unrealistic debt assessment, and credit so easy to get, and with the I have to have it NOW attitude, it is a disaster waiting to be repaired.
All I can say is I AM TIRED of carrying all these illegals, If you want in, come in the front gate, just like my ancestors did! Become a productive citizen, pay taxes based on your wages, get heath care, but I will too, learn to speak my language, not I yours, carry MY flag, SERVE "your" country as we had too, or did.
Just such BS, whoever said "there is no such thing as a free ride" is full of CRAP!!!!!! Or they never knew Mexico wasn't our 51st State.
