    And, Trinity "Always Wrong" (tm) is desperately searching the Internet (well at least CNS.com) for articles that can be excerpted artfully to support this.

    Don't forget the artful use of bold face, Italics and colors to make everything seem more important and true.....

    Your pathetic attempt to insult is amusing. You are wrong on numerous occasions and can't support your statements so you project. Stop whining and man up.

    I stand corrected! I type faster than think, apparently. Those darn borrowers!

    Either way, the term still makes me laugh hysterically.

    What president hasn't? Home ownership is the American Dream. Forcing banks to lend money to high risk groups is not.

    They weren't forced to do it. Just because people in our government pushed banks to lend money to those with lower income didn't mean that they had to create controversial programs that looked at every opportunity to take money away from their borrowers, overcharge them with fees at every single turn and not offer them the help they needed to pay bills when they actually needed it. And sure... it's easy to say "buyer beware" and all of that just like if this was a game of "Let's Make A Deal". But we're talking about a home... a place to sleep. A FAMILY NECESSITY. We're talking about getting enough money to own and maintain a home or apartment with the most humble of amenities. Not to get some "luxury condo" or two story house in the rich part of town. Surely, SOMEONE could have looked at all of this and tried to figure out a much better way to get money to those who needed it. That is, if that was the bank's real motives to begin with.

    Unfortunately, money has a way in blinding people from what's really needed. It does, however, aid to some really good cop outs as to why the banks failed in general. I suppose you don't think the term "predatory borrower" applies here, do you? :rolleyes:
