I agree with this man 1 billion percent.

Um. Ok. I'm intrigued.

Me too.

In fact, I'm trying to GET RID of my house, and they won't even foreclose on it. Weird. No one wants my poor house.

What ever happened to, "take it like a (wo)man?"

He's right on - I mean, I'm all for personal responsibility tempered with good social services for those who really need them (I am democraftic socialist, after all), but I think people need to be responsible for their financial decisions. If you can't pay your mortgage because your husband got laid off due to his job being moved overseas, that's one thing. If you can't pay your mortgage because you shouldn't have gotten one in the first place, that's your fault, not the fault of the lenders for "tricking" you into a variable interest rate. Sure, people were exploited, but home-buying is a big deal, and should be treated like one.

Oh man, ditto. I HATE the people blaming lenders for their own stupidity.

Now, THERE's something you can spend your economic stimulus package on!

Yeah, you can get giant piles of something from unknown origin!

I was thinking the Something Store would be great for small business suppliers of small ticket items. Like Lady_Fox's soaps. No marketing, your stuff just gets sent out, and you get paid.

Neat.

Didn't follow 1st link. Something Store: hmm. If I want random things, I just clean out the basement: "ooh, I forgot about this! I love it!!" Free.
