If we started this conversation talking about attorneys and people who always think it’s someone else’s fault for their problems. I’m guessing many of you all would be talking about how bad attorneys are.

When we have a problem it’s always convenient to blame someone else. We always want credit for anything we do that is good and we’ll blame someone else when it goes the wrong way. We are particularly good at that when it comes to political parties. My party can do no harm yours screwed up the world. I found it interesting that someone blamed Carter. Ya right 30 years ago some bill was passed that caused our economy to virtually collapse. Have you never made a mistake in your life? When you do make a wrong turn you correct it don’t you? If legislation was passed during the Carter administration that didn’t work are you saying he is at fault not someone in the 30 years who didn’t make a correction?

The answer to this question in my mind is that we are all at fault. When you buy a house you are buying an, drum roll please, an INVESTMENT. Tell me what happens to investments? They go up and down in value. If the value goes up we were smart enough to do the right thing. If it goes down it was someone else’s fault like those unscrupulous lenders! That gives us the justification to destroy the house taking everything we possibly can and pour concrete down the drains!

"The congress at that time passed the Community Redevelopement Act which requires bank to lend a set percentage to low income areas of the country."

Except most of the sub-prime loans were made by entities not regulated by the CRA.

but in the end it really was a broad based failure of our government (All administrations and all levels of government were part of it) which led to the corp and financial world offering shitty loans along with cooperation from the perifery of the financial world, and last but not least:

the american public. no loans would ever go into default if the public did not A.) take them out, and B.) default on them.

it is nearly impossible to assign more than an equal share to all 3 entities. they all sucked us dry and america will surely clean it up and move on. hopefully we will be smarter next time.

If one has financial problems, they are to blame for getting into that bad spot not anyone else.

Responsibility starts at home.

no doubt in my mind....and be ready this is so simple it seems stupid:

1/3 government-DOES NOT MATTER WHICH PARTY 1/3 financial system-meaning mortgage co, banks, fed, brokers 1/3 AMERICAN PUBLIC

it was so easy for the candidates to stand up in october and declare it was "the greed of wall street" blah, blah, blah-they could blame their own government body or party for that matter, and god forbid they ever criticize the american public-their voters for being greedy, manipulative and stupid when it comes to debt. they all share the blame because without any one of the three it would probably not happened. it drives me insane to hear people blame the first two and say the public was victimized. all of us can think back to our grandparents and how they handled their money. they had no advisors, lawyers, cpa, cfp-nothing they just knew they would not spend a nickel if they did not have a dollar in the other pocket to back it up. now (or more acurately in 2006 ish) you had people mortgage their monthly income to 55% of gross income for a mortgage payment. in simple working mans terms that means you are into your third week of the month to cover your mortgage, and not on take home pay-they figure it on gross pay.

Government encouraged, legislated and allowed it Financial system created products for people who could not handle them-in all income brackets American Public took it all and "acted stupidly". thanks for reading-now back to the business of enjoying this site.

At the end of the day I think maybe we are. We have elected and reelected the idiots that are running the assylum.

What I know is that it is impossible to borrow your way out of debt and it is equally impossible to spend your way out of broke.

That applies regardless of party affiliation!

Q : Who is to blame for the current economic problems.

Right now in my world, just the topic of health care reform is making my buyer's tight fist'd with their dolla's with a wait and see attitude.

There is plenty of blame to go around. Butt I'd blame the media for the ass fuking and story spinning @ the moment.

Big insurance company's are having a squirter's orgasm...lol

A SHAM HIDDEN WITHIN A CHARADE Since the late 1800's the world economies have been controlled and manipulated in such a way that the financial elite have been making profits on both ends of any given "crisis". Begining with Lord Rothschild spreading the rumor of Napolean's victory at Waterloo and driving all European markets down by 98%, and snatching stocks up at pennies on the pound. Since then EVERY war was engineered by groups like the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, and Goldman Sachs. Every Fed chairman for the past four administrations had once been CEO of Goldman Sachs, who making the same "mistakes" as Lehman Bros. recieved the bailout, while their competitor, Lehman was eaten up. Bush I, Clinton, Bush II and Obama's entire staff are members of CFR. We do not elect these men. They are chosen for us as frontmen to guide us down the predetermined path. The Who said it best "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."
