HousingPANIC Stupid Question of the Day

Who owes us an apology?


Anonymous said...

The only apology that is owed is from the government for interfering in the free market.

Edgar Alpo said...

I don't want an apology. I want them to die hideously lingering deaths with festering boils.

I should not have to be burdened with their bad financial decisions.

I am pissed that everyone is now a VICTIM!!

Those who denied the bubble and argued with me. (where are you now dipshit?)

Those realtors who pretended to be friends in an attempt to sell me a crapbox. (Keep lying Pat)

The realtors in my community who discredited and defamed me because I told people the truth. ( Herd your project fell through Mike)

Irresponsible government representatives that promoted the bubble.( Hi Greenie)

The idiot financial advisors that told me NOT to buy gold at $255 and put my parents into tech stock.(Stay out of Covina)

Greedy borrowers who bought toys and now ask me for loans.(get lost)

All those who denied the bubble while they brokered loans and then claimed the prediction was a no brainer once it popped.(Hi Henry)

Everyone who got all puffed up, pretending to be rich, and rubbed their new found success in the faces of others.(AMERICA)

Those who are out there still lying.(Hi Pat)

The realtor in Colorado that got caught gaining entry to his clients home via the lock box to steel her narcotic medication.(And the many who didn’t get caught)

The realtors who promoted multiple offers and bidding by asking low prices.(all of you)

The realtor in Santa Barbara who told me to “F” off when I asked him for comps.(wash it out with soap buddy)

The Republican party should issue an apology for the Bush-Cheney crime families. Then fold up their tent and go out of business.

Never going to happen. Those Libertarians in Washington D.C. will use every trick in the book to make someone else suffer the consequences of Deregulation.

Hank Paulson, Ben Bercracky, Greenscam, George W Crook, economists and bankers in general for looting the county. It's amazing how the so called experts, the economists, got this so wrong, when it was so obvious it was like a train wreck coming down the tracks.

Who else? Oh and the 80% of Americans who said real estate never goes down.

The NAR's appology should be in the form of dissolving their organization and suing Lawrence Yun for leading being the leader of the 80% of Americans as the happiest person in the world.

Only weak people look for apologies.

Alan greenspan owes america an apology.

Lawrence yun owes america an apology too.

You mean, like, one of those apologies where Congress says "sorry about that whole enslavement thing" to African Americans?

Apologies, no. Reparations, hell yes.

Dumbest post in the history of HP.

aguadiablo said...

Tom Adkins, Barry Assmus, Casey Serin, should be be all over the news telling people that Schiff is right and there is a dire need to listen to his fundamentals(and two of the three owe Schiff a huge apology).

The prolem is it is going to take a movement beyond epoch proportions to get people to save, live with some humility, admit when they were wrong even if it was together on a national scale. I don't see this happening.

For an apology, you are not going to get one from guys like Tom Adkins. He won't admit that fuckin hair on his head is a failure.

Keith, move on from the pain you feel. It sucks all of us here feel it.

Who owes America an apology?

Bailout cheerleaders - Mark Zandi, James Cooper of Business Week, the NAR, the entire staff of CNBC, Keith Olberman, etc. etc.

Bailout enactors - Chris Dodd, Chuch Schumer and a majority of the Senate, Barney Frank and a majority of the House, President Bush, Treasury Secretary Paulson, everyone at the Federal Reserve other than Richard Fisher (but especially Timothy Geithner)

Bailout beneficiaries - the entire financial industry. On the way up, they support Republicans to ensure "privatization of profit". When the crash comes, they support Democrats to ensure "socialization of losses".

bostonobserver said...

You do Keith for hyping up the most unqualified candidate ever to run for president... B Obama.

Where is the column on how he wiped up the floor with that doddering old fool John McCain Saturday night?

What's that, it was Obama who couldn't answer a question and stumbled and bumbled over the most basic responses? No wonder he doesn't want any town hall meeting where he might have to think on his feet.

I guess there was no teleprompter handy.

Latest tracking polls 45-45.

When I was a kid in Sixth Grade I was told to bring in a fiction book to read. I went to the store and used my hard earned 50 cents and bought "The Time Machine" by H. G. Wells.
When I returned to school I discovered I had not gotten the "word". Everyone had a copy of "Black Beauty" during the reading period.
The teacher came around to my desk and ripped "The Time Machine" from my hands. "This book is not for you" she said and I received a beating like you would not believe, my book being hammered into my body and destroyed in the process.
Well, I will seek an apology from H. G. Wells someday in the great beyond because of the beating I received. Later, we were all given an exam to test our reading skills. The teacher discovered that I had a 12th grade reading level at age 10. She never apologized.
Do I expect an apology from people like Bernake, Bush and others in Government who took away this retirees life by lowering interest rates to support their buddies on Wall Street? Who have stagnated my ability to move? Who destroyed my neighborhood with speculators all over the place and sale sign after sale sign?
Once again, I've taken a beating and I know that no apology is coming! The government OWES an apology for using communist/socialist methods of re-distribution of wealth but the opposite of Marx, here we take care of the rich at the expense of the poor and middle class. It's like the attitude of the French Aristocracy before the revolution.
I've taken enough beatings. It's your turn. No more incumbents, no more Republican philosophy of taking care of the rich, and we'll all benefit lies. No more Cowboy presidents, Corporate VP's, etc.

apology? you are a pussy.

Oh, someone pissed in my corn flakes! Now you owe me an apology!

This is done (there will be more unwinding, that is for sure), now it is time to start planning for what is next.

We are a nation of morons. But that is a good thing as it is impossible for everyone to be in the top 1%.

There are TONS of boarding schools that run the EST seminars. They also use Lifespring. They are Synanon based.

Google WWASPS, CEDU, Provo Canyon, Elan, Cross Creek Manor, Paradise Cove, and on and on and on.

Fucking Hellholes.

I know.

Google the Movie "Tranquility Bay"

This shit would probably piss off Keith more than the housing bubble.

Educational Consultants were recommending people to take out 2nd mortgages to send their kids to these two year programs at $4-7,000/month

There is a power in being able to say, "I was wrong". If all the people who were wrong are unable to admit it, then they will suffer by not learning from their mistakes. (E.g. - infomercials might not be the best source of financial planning advice).

As for redress, fah-ged-aboudit. Just make it so I can afford a nice house, if I should ever again be inclined to buy one in this lifetime.

For someone that apparently believes in God - you certainly don't live by his word. I don't remember Jesus ever teaching anyone to be a greedy pig. Someone that claims to believe in God would believe in some sort of social safety net. It's not just crack whores using that safety net - it's elderly people some of whom can't work, it's ill people, handicapped people, it's also people that work 40-50 hours a week but only make $7.15 an hour. It could be your sibling or child one day that needs that safety net. One catastrophe could mean you need that safety net. There will always be some people that take advantage - but look at other countries where welfare is easy and most people still opt to work - imagine that. Not everyone is a lazy bum. And drilling for more oil and destroying the environment further is clearly not the only solution. It won't reap any benefits for years if at all. The solution is exploring alternate forms of energy and cutting back on consumption by improving mass transit until we find that alternate source. I'm an optimist. I think it will happen in our lifetimes. Man has the media brainwashed you. Try watching something besides Fox
