    Okay, so I thought I’d go over my sad story with you all before I go for talking to the big ONE. First of all, several years ago, my husband and I bought a home. We were encouraged to put the minimum down on it, but, call me crazy, we decided to put 50% down on the house. We took out a fixed rate, 30 year mortgage and we have faithfully paid on time each month. We paid cash for our cars, don’t carry a credit card balance, and take care of our own children.

    So now I live in a neighborhood peopled by execs at GM, Ford, and Chrysler. These guys screwed the company over by negotiating union contracts and allowing work rules that wouldn’t allow them to be successful. At the first hint of bad news, all three companies started transferring people. They gave them a deal where they could sell their house for whatever they could get and then the company would make up the difference. The value of MY ding-dang house went down because of the comparables going down. Then they started giving buy outs to get people to go. Houses, again, went up for sale, some of them got rented out to wing-nuts and meth dealers, and some sold for much less than the previous values, because these folks had the buyout dollars to make up the difference, so they caved on price. The value of my house went down. Then the car companies and banks got buy outs. One of the neighbors got transferred the moment her company got TARP’ed, and the company bought her house. They put it on the market for $150,000 less than she paid just two years ago (they had some lee-way in the price because they had our tax dollars to make up the difference). Those who got let go from GM, Ford, Chrysler, and the suppliers, are now doing fire sales on their homes. Again, the value of my home went down.

    NOW, the last dregs are still here. Some of them probably are under water on their mortgages, but not to worry. The government will come in and fix that nasty principal and interest problem for them. In fact, if they just stay current on their new (reduced) loan, the government will give them MY tax dollars to pay down their principal. This will free these folks up to sell their houses for a lower price. AND GUESS WHAT???? The value of my home will GO DOWN!!!!

    Now, we’re left with a house that is worth much less than it was just a few short years ago, but we don’t qualify for SQUAT because we put so much down on our house that our mortgage is not under water. We also have made every payment on time, so we don’t get any good stuff for that. My husband earns too much money, so we will be asked to belly up to the bar on that account. We haven’t screwed up enough or been irresponsible enough on any account for anyone to care about what the heck happens to us. AND THAT’S HOW THE ECONOMY HAS AFFECTED ME.

    I’d love to see the liberals hear that one. Sadly it’s all too common- to succeed in today’s society you must succeed at failing and the government will do the rest.

    5kidsnadog, yea that about covers it for my parents too. I unfortunately rent because when the wife and I first started thinking about buying a place we decided to try and save up at least 30% to put down first (call us crazy) but later we decided that we should do grad school before putting down roots.

    So I guess we should have gone ahead, bought a house four times more expensive than we could afford and just waited for Barry to bail us out.

    Gee, how dumb were we.

  • mer says:

    Ok, how about this one. My wife and I moved and bought a house about 13 years ago. We bought what we could afford. Then we were able to refinance to a 15 year fixed, been paying extra principal. Now we’re down to about 60K left on it. Oh and about 6 months left on a car loan. So we were pretty stupid to, trying to live debt free. Now because I am being forced to own multiple homes, multiple banks, multiple car companies, I may find it difficult to meet my previous obligations. Why not give me a tax holiday for 2 years? Then I’ll owe nothing. That would stimulate me.

    I was working construction when this happened to me. There was this bucket/pulley system being used to haul bricks up to the top level of the scaffolding at the house I was working on. The brickers where done and overloaded the bucket. When I tried to pull it down, the weight of the bucket was too much for me and I went flying up to the pulley. As I was going up, I hit the bucket of bricks that was going down. I then broke my fingers as my hand went halfway through the pulley. All the while, the bucket of bricks hit the ground, spilled the load. And with be now being the counter weight, I started to fall. I again hit the bucket at the halfway point finally landing on the pile of bricks that the bucket left behind. But that’s not the end. There were a few more bricks in that bucket. When the bucket ran into the pulley, the bucket spilled the last remaining bricks down onto me. And finally, the rope broke and the bucket fell down on me too.

    That’s my story, Mr. Obama.

    Can I have my check now?

    I’ve never been one who has felt the need to communicate either through clever license plate or through bumper sticker, but I am suddenly feeling the need to buy that bumper sticker that says “Honk if I’m paying your mortgage!”

    On another, very tangential note, I was in a very foul mood the other day when I pulled up behind a Prius, with not one, but two Obama/Biden bumper stickers, and one in the middle that said “War is not the answer!”. I went home and ran four miles to keep from hunting that fool down and driving over him with my SUV.

  • Undecided says:

    I love how we are automatically supposed to equate times being bad with Obama’s plan being able to work. It’s very poor logic, but I that’s liberal logic for you. Don’t argue why your plan will work, just scare people into accepting it.

  • Dear Not my President Obama
    Huh? I am not a bum. I’m a jerk. I once had wealth, power, and the love of a beautiful woman. Now I only have two things: my friends and… uh… my thermos. Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin’ on the porch with my family, singin’ and dancin’ down in Mississippi.
    Kin I git sum munny pleeze?
