    Here is an idea. Unless you have at least 20% to put down on a 15 year fixed mortgage and have good credit and are debt free, don’t buy a house.

    You are all living in your bubble world. Here IS the DEAL: Banks and Wall Street PLOTTED to Steal and to roll over what they stole as fast and as much as they could. THEN they got caught with THEIR own missing paper work! NOW Like it or Not the Homeowners OWN their homes FREE and CLEAR. Most are just not willing to go through the battle! So blame homeowners, fine; reality is BANKERS GOT SLOPPY; Ha HA HA

    I hope EVERY single homeowner who SUES beats the criminal banks and WINS; no matter how you look at it the Smartest Guys in the Room Set the Stage for this SCAM and guess what? They CANT PROVE THEY OWN A THING cause they don’t; talk about the homeowners all you want it will never erase the truth; GREED and Avarice, Larceny, Forgery, Fraud, Drugs, Prostitution, and EVIL allowed this to go this far without Prosecution. I hopeALL the BIG banks go under and disappear for ever.

    it’s interesting to see the various responses people have to this song. IMO none of you are wrong; there are many groups responsible for this mess: lenders, mortgage brokers, appraisers, title/escrow companies, buyers/borrowers, real estate agents, wall street, and the fed gov’t for not enforcing the rules. What happened was a perfect storm of greed, ignorance, and corruption, and what this song is pointing out is that only the banks (who perpetrated and planned this fiasco) are getting help.

    If you believe this, then you should believe that the banks should all have failed as well- and GM. Oh wait I guess you believe the CEO of a wall street bank should be exempt.

    “These banks don’t care about your understanding of the contract.” If the banks didn’t care about the risk why aren’t they allowed to go broke?

    You know there once was a time that the government let all the banks fail. Now what was it called…. it’s on the tip of my tongue, oh yeah The Great Depression, not the small depression we had.
    As for GM that was some *moron’s* idea not mine, I definitely wouldn’t have bailed them out.

    on one hand I agree…..i mean really, does everyone need their hand held in this economy? we think and act for ourselves, and shit happens right? i mean, I’m pretty sure Rainangel111 here thinks for herself, makes her own decision, and would be totally willing to live on the street if it meant giving the banks what THEY feel is right, regardless of her situation. right guys? right?

    on the other hand, how’s your mortgage Rainangel? i assume you’re in an apartment or your moms basement…

    Actually, I’m still in Highschool. But when I DO buy a house, I’m going to try to put as much money on the down payment as possible, and it’s a goal of mine to live without a credit card, if i can. I’ve seen what debt can do and I want no part in it. just so you know, I’m not siding with the banks either. they screwed up. they were basically gambling with mortgages, but i don’t think people should make excuses for themselves either.

    777shades…Please go to bed. I am a victim in thisa crises and no one signs up for anything literally to fail. NO ONE expected for stocks, job and all these markets to fall the way they did so how dare you beat up on the very people that make this society and econony a success until greed of CEO and political head decide their bank accounts mean more…

    fact is many mortgage companies went out looking for suckers who could qualify for ‘government guaranteed’ loans, knowing full well the new owners would have a hard time later on, but their butts were covered and they get the property back to sell to some other borderline qualifier (american dreamer) who thinks they’ll be able to make the payments, but aren’t aware of all the extra expenses that sometimes come up when you own and maintain. Mongo just walked from his crackerbox. Mongo knows ;?)~

    THOUGHT EXPERIMENT:
    1)The use of force of any kind, except in the case of self-defense, is immoral.
    2) All governments, for thousands of years, have granted themselves the unilateral right to use force against the individuals it claims to have sovereignty over.
    (For example: Taxation is theft. If you don’t pay your taxes, force will be used against you.Personal desire to pay taxes does not remove the reality of government force.)
    3) Therefore, all forms of government are immoral.

    The fact is, you got a loan for teaser rate you could barely afford, then the teaser rate changed (duh) . then you couldn`t afford your payments. You knew this could happen, but you didn`t do your homework, and now you blame someone else. Typical America.

    In public newspapers, here in Toronto, they advertise those homes that have been foreclosed for bargain bin prices. It’s sad.
