I’ve had enough. Have you had enough? Take Back The Economy.
I’s like to know, “Who Stole Our Country, and How are We Going to Get It Back?“
There’s plenty of blame to go around. If one wanted to, we could:
…blame Congress, who rebuffed attempts to enhance regulation to Fannie and Freddie during ’07. Barney Frank, you know who you are…
…blame the SEC, who didn’t care enough to learn about the derivatives market so they could create structure and regulation to the market.
…blame President Bush, because it seems to be such a popular thing to do.
…blame sleazebag mortgage brokers and banks who structured and sold instruments which lured in borrowers.
You know who REALLY deserves the blame? If you want to blame others, FIRST BLAME THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. Blame your neighbor who borrowed 105% LTV on a 1 yr ARM, and defaulted on their loan. What the hell ever happened to personal accountability? What happened to living within your means? You know, many people want to blame the nameless, faceless bureaucrats, because we can’t face ourselves. You know who I can’t stand “bailing” out? My freakin’ lazy neighbor.
Does anyone DESERVE a home? Or the “good life”? For that matter, does anyone in this nation deserve ANYTHING for simply being a citizen of the US? ABSOLUTELY NOT. This country was founded on equal OPPORTUNITY, not equal PRIVILEGE. America makes but one promise: If you want it, the US promises you equal opportunity and protection under the law to EARN it. If you have been denied equal opportunity because of your race or gender, or some other compelling reason, you have a legitimate beef. But if you don’t, shut your piehole, get to work, and pay your bills. It seems we have been overrun with whiners who expect to be fed everything.
If we want to get out of this god awful mess, as a nation we better stop blaming everyone else and get on with the business of digging ourselves out. Whether you follow a Democrat or Republican, a leader cannot take on the efforts and do the work of the people. We have to pull ourselves up by the bootstraps. Seems like we have alot of lazy people around…
Rant much SBO?
No more than you, Pam.
