I’ve touched on this before but I have not gotten into the full details as to why you make the rest of us mad as hell! You are the people that paid a half of a million dollars for a 500 square foot condo or a million dollars for a 2200 square ft. home. To accept usury prices for yourself is one thing but then to move across country and raise the prices that are outrageous in our States made the cost of homes go up Nationally. By your paying for a home that was overpriced in our area where the wages could never pay for the cost of the prices you were willing to pay, it forced the rest of us to have to come up in price, in order to own a home. Unfortunately, in order I’m sure of your avoiding paying through the nose on capital gains when you sold your homes, you passed on your own State’s broken system, by paying too high of a price for a home in our area.
We now have homes that no matter how much the income we make, we will never be able to afford them, much less pay them off. Currently the market is still dropping at a rate of 6% on houses that should never have been priced so high in the first place. Yes, we are as responsible as you are, as we lost sight of our own common sense in order to own our own home. Texas appears to be one of the few States that did not fall for this.
People that are on unemployment, that have no intentions of getting a job, make us mad as hell, as well. I will use Colorado as a point of this as they pay unemployment if people are fired or if they quit on their own. I personally know of a person that lived for 3 years on his ex-girl friend’s couch. He went out on interviews with the deliberate attempt to fail at getting the job. He was too lazy to work and by mooching off an ex-girlfriend he could work 6 months and then quit and draw unemployment for 2 to 3 years and never bat an eye at the fact that he wasn’t entitled to do so. He is one of many that claims to have a right to unemployment because he paid for it while working. The truth is they have never worked long enough to get back what they draw. It is the taxpayers that pay for it, and whatever they tell themselves, they are drawing welfare and denying it to themselves.
People that have the attitude that if credit card companies are dumb enough to send you a credit card, you would be stupid to not get it, people with the attitude that they may not pay on time but eventually they do pay and are willing to pay usury interests rate and payment fees, people that buy appliances or furniture on the, “buy now pay two years later plan” and pay absorbant interests rates as a result, really make those of us disgusted! We will be paying through our nose for years, even though our credit is good, because most of you will not pay off your interests ever, much less pay off the principle. Even with the new guidlines there are no caps placed on interest rates.
Those people that go to debt consolidators or file bankruptsy, because they were willing to pay the high interest rates to get what they wanted now, rather than wait and save money, or get the one appliance that needed replacing, rather than all of them, because they wanted all matching stainless steel. Now you feel justified because the credit card companies have made a mint off of you so you are entitled to screw them. You have set up and established debt consolidators all over the Country that do not care if the rest of us have good credit or not but once our names get on their calling list, even when we have excellent credit, we are being hounded day and night by their calls. PLus it isn’t the credit card companies that are getting screwed, because you now refuse to pay, it is us the consumer that refuses to pay such high interest rates because we limit credit card use and pay on time that are paying off what you refuse to pay, and we are all mad as hell!
ALL OF YOU above, combined with those of you that were convinced that you had no business owning a home yet let some greedy lender talk you into buying and now are mad as hell at the government because they are not paying stimulus dollars to help you all pay the high rates on your credit cards, homes you had no business buying, or giving you jobs that you feel entitled to have, even though when many of you do work it takes two to three of you to work as hard as one of us that holds the same job, really makes us Mad!
Many of you have not only played the system but you have also drained the pockets of family members as well as turned others against the members that were smart enough not to bail you out, after you created more upset amongst friends and family!How dare you think that we still owe you more by having our tax dollars through the stimulus bill pay you for the mess you got yourselves into! When will you realize the problem is YOU?!
