Remember all the times we compared the downfall of housing to the downfall of Britney Spears? Well, they're still tracking each other pretty good eh

The correlation is actually quite bizarre. I guess freefalls after meteoric unjustified rises are just part of nature. Kinda sad on both fronts, but oh, so predictable. I think Britney can get help and recover. And I think housing is beyond help.

Some classic HP posts here, here and here.

Life of Britney Spears, Like That of Anna Nicole Smith, in Ruins

2007 possibly housing's worst year since Depression

In the bald pic, are her eyes totally not symmetric? Or is it just that I've been drinking?

It's not funny. Pick on someone who is not so mentally ill.

Women have a ten year shelflife you're better off renting just like housing

Bed and the Fed do a nice cover of "Oops I Did It Again".

All that house needs is a ceiling fan and it will flip for +$100k instant equity. It'll be Britney Spears' biggest fan.

Insightful! Creative! Poignant!

However, the homedebtor outcome isn't as bad as you suggest. They still have plenty of savings to fall back on when the ARM adjusts and the neighborhood lights up with REOs.

We get enough Shitney in the mainstream news while Rome burns around us Keith. The last thing we need to do is give this twit more attention.

Britney is still an open ATM for the vultures circling above. The housing ATM has been out of cash since the 2nd half of 2007. Those assholes in Clownifornia are having temper tantrums since the banks have shut down their HELOCs. Get a fuggin job, asshats

80% of American mothers have postpartum depression

Why men should not marry

Sex after marriage stops

Marry foreign women only

Marry only if you want kids

Children are so overrated

Why marriage no longer makes sense

Examples of modern American women / page 2 3

Any American man can find a beautiful and loyal foreign girlfriend or wife

Give me ONE good reason why a man should sign a marriage contract with an American woman

You should be proud if American women call you a "loser"

Here's another comparasion. Lenders knew what they were doing with the loans could hurt them in the long run, but greed took over. In Britney's case her manager's and agent's knew she needed help, but greed again took over and thats why things got so out of control.

C'mon, Keith. What's next, a discussion of whether or not Brad and Angelina's kiddie collecting is good for various third world RE markets?

God Bless You. You are right.

That's why you should always check the mother-in-law looks before committing. Most brides look great before hooking an idiot for a husband, but after they get their kid and the house, all that's left for you are bills and a fat bitching dragon.
