I'm sitting here watching a show on CNN.
Almighty Debt/Black in America.
The theme of the show is around a church group... and the financial impact
to African American people during this economic recession.. the worst since
I can't believe some of this shit. Nothing to do with them being African
These financially stupid people are living in $800,000.00 homes... paying
$4300.00 in mortgage payments a month. The interior of their homes
are decorated like a fucking Las Vegas Casino... and they have cars
that make mine look like shit.
This one couple hasn't made a payment in 26 months!!!!! And they
aren't even concerned about it. They think GOD is going to take care
What sort of financial sense do some of these folks in America have.
Or is this going on in Canada too and I'm not aware of it???????
I've never had a mortgage payment that was higher than the rent
payment would be on the residence I lived in.
It's incredible. I know everyone isn't like some of the folks on this
show... but some things are just crazy. Did these folks ever for
one moment think... "What if one of us lost our jobs..."
Someone recommended they downsize to a $400,000 home and the
comment they had was "We are attached to our house".
Fuck me... unreal. No sympathy. Get some financial skills.
Another couple... their monthly expenses are $6000.00... their
income is $4000.00.... hello.
