All About Excuses... (By Guest Contributor "tells it like it is")

So tell me why is it that people feel the government is at fault for the way the economy is? Oh that's right its the banks fault!
Well to tell you the truth it's your faults! the government or the banks didn't tell you to take out home loans for more then what you can afford or to live beyond your income per month did they? so who's fault is it now? doesn't any one look out for them self's anymore?

I haven't seen any one on the news saying "Well I did this to my self for living beyond what I make so here's the keys to the house and SUV I'm going to live in a box" Oh I know it's the banks fault for tricking them into buying a 400,000 home when they both only make enough to own a 100,000 home.

Is this how it went, your at the bank with your spouse and the bank person said, well you and your spouse only make 42,000 a year combined, but no fear we can make it look like your making 55,000 a year and get you in to that 400,000 house you've always wanted just sign on the dotted line please, so now your in debt 6 feet over your eye balls and paying back a monthly mortgage payment that is just about what you bring home and when it all comes crashing down it's the government or the banks fault?

Its funny how people look at life as if it only revolves around them and not how it effects the big picture. You people F'ed up the economy not the system.
You only make so much per month and still have the balls to max out your credit cards and when you can't pay your bills it's time to blame the government or the banks for telling you in advance that if your late on your payments we're going to charge you allot more in interest or take your stuff!
It's ok you can cut up your flat screen you paid 3 times as much as it's worth cause you didn't save up for it and bought it on CREDIT and feed that to your kids when they get hungry.
Oh yeah don't let me forget that not only did you buy a house you can't really afford you went out and bought a 40,000 SUV cause you think you have the right to own stuff you can't afford.
If you can't pay for everything but the house and car in cash then maybe you shouldn't HAVE IT !!!

In this life you only deserve what your can afford! there is no such thing as "you have the right" to anything other then to be free so don't F it up for the rest of us cause you think you have the right to things your can't afford.

What kind of roll model are we if this is how we look at life? it seams a good part of society lives for right now and not for tomorrow and hides behind "it's not my fault" and or "I have the right"
I would just like to see people taking responsibility for there lives and stop blaming the government! they have enough to worry about with out having to manage your personal finances.


  1. Maybe we need to place some blame in all 3 laps!!! Look how our Government is spending... look at how much the Banks & Wall Street profit & blatantly steal from the smallest investors and the credit card companies create an environment where people who can afford their debts, suddenly can't because they suddenly change the terms.

    We all share responsibility in this mess. Surely, however, it is not the fault of someone who loses a job to sustain a long term ability to make payments? Neither should it be society's obligation to pay endless unemployment &/or pension benefits to Union backed employees, while the self employed, small business owners and non-union employees are suffering the losses...the self & small business owners can't receive unemployment they are lucky to get food stamps if they have no work.......after providing to society & employing others for so long.

    It's a complex picture...with multiple guilty partners........lets just get this economy in gear! This Government gets no sympathy from me..It needs to do it's job.

    As to foolish people..they will pay the price in any economy!!

  2. we it's never "the people's" fault...people always have to blame someone else instead of taking responsibility for their own, dumb ass actions!!

    living beyond your means is no way my fault or problem, and i SHOULD NOT HAVE TO SUFFER FOR IT!!! you got yourself into this mess...get yourself out of it...people cannot expect the gov't to bale our asses out everytime you overextend yourself. if you are inthat situation because of loss of should always plan ahead just in case. just logical!

  3. here's another thing to ponder... was reading on line today about a student in new hampshire who electrocuted himself in shop class when he attached a wire to each of his nipples and a friend turned on the power!!! they are suing the teacher, school and the TOWN because the teacher didn't warn them that it could be dangerous!! are you kidding me?? the kid now has supposed severe brain damage and HE IS NOT TO BLAME!!!! i hope the judge tells this family where to go!!

    seriously?? take responsibilites for your own STUPID actions!!!

  4. Well I can't say I feel bed for him! I think he's the weekest link and we really don't need people in the world that are going out of there way to mess it up for the rest of us that have worked so hard for what little me have. I'm sure there going to sue now and cost the town and school bundle.
    So the out coome would be the school has less money to teach so now there going to trun out dumber kids that are going to do more stupid stuff... I can't help but laugh.

    So if the dumb ass jumped out a sec story window while in school would it still have been the town, teacher and schools fault for not making it CLEAR that jumping out a sec story window could kill you?

    I'm sure the judge is going to tell them to go to hell!!! I would, he got what he wanted a one time thrill and thats it over and done with...
