Congress approves "Housing" bill, Bush uses opportunities and threaten to veto - he wants to be remembered for something useful for once, of course he will not ( will not veto and thanks God he will NOT be remembered for anything, but BAD and WRONG )
Why do they call it "Housing bill" when it just saves crooked financial institutions, their corrupt incompetent CEOs and likes, big shareholders ( small fishes ALREADY lost money), Mosilos of the world and deadbeat brain dead "homeowners" who should have never owned a house or even a credit card on the first place?

Why I feel so STUPID and betrayed after been fiscally responsible ( STUPID), paying taxes ( STUPID), putting together 20% downpayment ( STUPID), rolling with the punches (STUPID), never filed ch11 ( STUPID)...list goes on
and WHY when I was working my butts off to make timely mortgage payment none was bailing ME out?
Why I feel so stupid for been forced to pay for someone who I THOUGHT was stupid, but - what do I know - STUPID IS ME!

[short story]
My neighbor was working for one of "do not short financial institutions". He was let go about 2 years ago on the lame ground of "Internet misuse" ( he is 57 years old - he might have been playing games over the network all the time) - along with another 30% of highly paid specialists in the same not so fine establishment...what a coincidence..most of those positions were filled back very quick by "BetteL educated pLofessionals who undeLstand youL conceLns" ( 2 for 1 - you know the story )

He applied for unemployment, but was denied on a ground of "willful violation of company's policies"
He appealed, went to "hearing" - was faced with "bright" state employee with proud title "I am in charge for your destiny and I will rule in favor of bigger taxpayer - don't you feel STUPID?" Was faced on hearing by 2 lawyers, 1 chief "investigative" officer, HR person and 3 of his former dumb, really dumb bosses.
Case lost.

Then it gets 3 months his wife losses her job..same "benefits story there"
( I just wondering if it is counted in "unemployment claims"). They try to find comparable jobs..for a while..then they DID take shitty jobs with shitty salaries...just to be able to pay for food, but not house
They had 30 fixed mortgage UNDER 6%, house was bought back in 1998, 401Ks ( now IRAs), College funds for their 3 children, smart, energetic, BELIEVERS in SYSTEM and GREAT AMERICA.

...They sold their house 2 weeks ago - Mike ( my former neighbor ) once told me - that was their DREAM HOUSE.

During our last handshake he said: "WHY?.."


Detective Del Spooner: Is there a problem with the Three Laws?
Dr. Alfred Lanning: The Three Laws are perfect.
Detective Del Spooner: Then why would you build a robot that could function without them?
Dr. Alfred Lanning
: The Three Laws will lead to only one logical outcome.
Detective Del Spooner
: What? What outcome?
Dr. Alfred Lanning
: Revolution.
Detective Del Spooner
: Whose revolution?
Dr. Alfred Lanning: *That*, Detective, is the right question. Program terminated.
