Jul 22nd 2012 1:24PM The renters will return to homebuying when home ownership means more to folks than paying interest on a mortgage that they will never burn. Kind of like having a degree in teaching that was financed by student loans you'll never pay off, mortgages seem more like a form of imprisonment than part of the American Dream.
Jul 2nd 2012 10:29PM Some of those banks are still at it. In Washington state Wells Fargo was cai=ught using an unlicensed out-of-state inspector to file a report verifying that a Washington home in delinqunecy was still occupied by the borrower. The inspectors never even left their vehicles or came to the door talk to he home occupants. The borrower still got a bill for the "inspection" though. Time's a comin' when predatory banks like this won't even be licensed in this country. Y'all can't rip people off forever....
Oct 16th 2011 11:48AM Todays air travel from this passenger's perspective is very much like that of cattle crammed into a trailer on it's way the the slaughterhouse. No food, too hot or too cold, bad odors and packed in like sardines. Of course, the pilot, like the truck driver, can relax and eat like a king while the cattle in the trailer suffer and pay for the privilidge! How sad mass transit has come to this!
Jul 16th 2011 8:57AM Venture capitalization has taken the same path downward as college degrees. You pay more but the product is worth less. Until that trend reverses there wil be limited interest in adding money to products that can't prove thier value.
Jun 27th 2011 10:22PM Go Daddy is not worth $2 Billion. Any company that has to hide thier actual practices in small print in contracts; (e.g. a company that alleges to sell domain names masking a domain name search service as an actual domain name purchase until the customer has already made payment for the domain name) is a class action liabilty waiting to happen.

Apr 23rd 2011 3:56PM Who can afford to borrow or get credit anymore? Even with low credit and mortgage rates the related loan service, insurance, transaction and ATM fees make borrowing or credit cards a bad deal. Citi, BOA and G-Sachs are gonnna' have to learn to live like the rest of us-without.

Feb 28th 2011 9:02AM Mortgage brokers are useless and impede what shoud be a direct relationship between a local bank and a home buyer, which should last for the lengthof the loan. There would be a lot fewer foreclosures if the requrement was that home loans had to be made and served directly by a local bank for the duration.
Feb 18th 2011 8:56AM BA's are becomming obsolete due to their cost and the amout of time you are out of the market. In the case of those featured in this article, they all needed education, but educated themselves in the interest of moving into thier work of preference. College could not possibly have met their "educational" needs.
