Is everyone doing so well here that they can't imagine that this might be genuine? No one can feel for their fellow person who has fallen on hard times in this economic climate?
Imagine for a moment that this is a complete fabrication...a fiction made solely to point out just how difficult it is for a family to survive today, because IT IS. Couldn`t at least someone, anyone at all have empathized with the struggle another human being could be going through?
During the Great Depression, when farms were foreclosed on and sold at auction, neighbors would bid on the property and buy it back for just a couple of bucks then give it back to the original owner. They stood together in hard times.
Sadly, that would never happen today. It`s tragic.

This is where,currently, thigns are different in europe, or rather, a bunch of the european countries. unfortunatly, for about 30 years now, most european countries strive to be more like the usa, as if that has ever been a good thing. Well, no, it used to be a good thing.. before 1950. after that the usa went belly up and most teh european countries seem to do is follow that example
So what you're saying is after WW2 you should`ve joined the USSR cause things worked out so well for them? Then they call us stupid while following us like a puppy dog.....whew!

DFWBrysco-if the banks and mortgage companies hadn't leveraged outrageous loans to low scoring credit impaired people Do you think the banks WANTED to make risky loans? That`s not how you protect your pofits.
Things like the changes in the Community Reinvestment Act in the 90`s, and virtual blackmail by `civil rights` groups (notably Jesse `You will loan to minorities who can`t afford it or we`ll call your bank `racist` in the media` Jackson) are what caused the majority of banks to make bad loans.
