Remember all the ads that said a vacation? Put it on the house! and it is no coincidence that the phrase the house, denotes in your mind. That precisely what they wanted you to think. The discovery that you had to pay it back was supposed to come later.Interestingly enough, according to the article, now is the meaning that is becoming true. Second mortgages are going unpaid in increasing numbers, and homeowners are threatning the banks with default if the bank doesn let them alone.Which means all the junk they bought with those home equity loans cars, vacations, ipods, dental work, the wife new boogs, whatever really will be, ultimately, free.Not really free, of course. All that money, by not being repaid, is souring the credit markets, making other loans harder to come by. Because the loans were back by value in homes that has now disappeared, it is going to be impossible to get it back. Banks are showing profits, but with less money to loan floating around, the economy as a whole will suffer.Which means unemployment stays high and all the rest.It also means that you and I who saved up money and bought things, and paid our debts, are once again being played for saps.If it were up to me, I demand the banks go after every one of these deadbeats hammer and tongs a national lesson that you can borrow, not pay back, and suffer no consequences, is a very bad lesson indeed. The sight of a few of them living on the curb might scare the rest into more responsible fiscal practices and then the nation as a whole will be better off.Yeah, but if they do go after them hammer and tongs, they will walk away from their mortgages, which means more repossessions, more defaults, more problems for the housing markets, higher unemployment, etc. etc. Problems either way. It seems like a Catch 22 the banks have created for themselves. Or as Oliver used to put it to Stan, another fine mess you gotten us into! to me.I have a hard time believing, though, that a great many people were fooled by advertising into thinking borrowing against your home equity meant free money. Most of those who did it and now can pay were foolish, spendthrifts, etc but not fooled by advertising.The phrase the bankers threw at us when property values began to rise significantly was money out of your house for well, for whatever you want to use it for. English translation: the size of your mortgage by borrowing more. I find it hard to believe people agreed to that without understanding they were in fact borrowing more and increasing their debt when they money out of their house. As many, including Charlie, have pointed out, shopping! is the war cry of our time. No more living small, no more saving up for what we want we have a patriotic duty to be consumers. It completely ingrained in our culture to spend and spend, and when we run out of money, we borrow, so that we can spend some more. Gotta have the latest gadget, gotta have the best car on the radio I heard a couple of ads for mortgage loans too to remodel? Want to take that vacation? Want something you haven got a dime for? Do it the easy way and call our mortgage company this problem is just the spending coming home to roost living in an unsustainable way has to end some time it a shame that it always has to end with a crisis situation that hurts everyone.While I generally agree, I carve out an exception for people who took out second mortgages or refinanced and took money out to pay for medical care, operations, etc. they could not otherwise afford. If I had a wife or child facing some dread disease and in need of expensive medical care to live, I take out a second mortgage for every dime I could if I had no other way to pay for their care. And there are people across the country who find themselves in that kind of bind. I think the largest single cause of personal bankruptcy in the country is medical bankruptcy.So while we leveling justified criticism at the free spenders on borrowed cash they couldn afford to borrow, I exempt those driven by life saving medical costs they could not pay any other way.Our economy is based on consumer spending, and the housing bubble was based on people increasingly in homes with Bush society the latest push.Since homebuilding couldn be outsourced to China, it was the one thing that kept people employed: contractors, tradesmen, big box home stores, furniture, Crap China Decorating Stuff Inc and THE BIG GIANT CHEAP CLOCK required of all McMansions.As the market cooled, mortgages got easier to obtain, via the subprime market and resulting derivatives.First time buyers had starter homes with granite (radon emitting) countertops, stainless steel appliances, stonework, the required stucco AND of rooflines because it looks more expensive THEN you didn have a mortgage (ie, if you had equity or no mortgage at all), you were bombarded with the the house home equity offers.AND made so much sense to some, to take out home equity loans for that car, vacation or spending spree BECAUSE IT WAS A TAX DEDUCTIBLE LOAN!The entire economy now centered on the home industry and associated mortgages.Want to make money? Watch This House and see a poor person spend $500,000 on a hovel and sell it for $850,000. Yeah, you can do that, too! No down payment? Take out a home equity loan! We don care what you spend the money on!No longer was your house a home. It was your investment and something you profit from! long as the interest on home equity loans is tax deductible, the spending spree will go on. Oh, it cooled for awhile once the market warms up again, it be back.I have little sympathy for people who are in over their heads.When we bought our home in 1975, we were down for several years the market was stagnant. We really didn care, because it was OUR HOME. Not an investment.

James also said he didn't regret taking his shirt off at DioGuardi's request during his first tryout with the judges. It may have put him in the contest, he said, and he was then able to prove his talent. He took issue with one aspect of the "American Idol" format, saying the limitation on song length is a "real issue." Being able to perform longer tunes would "open up a realm of possibilities," James said. But he said he's the kind of guy who accepts what's happened and is happy about it. "I continue to say it but it remains to be true: Everything happens for a reason," he said. On a darker note, James noted that the May 11 performance show marked the sixth anniversary of his near fatal motorcycle accident, when he was taken by helicopter from the crash to a hospital. The 27 year old musician from Fort Worth made it to the top three on "American Idol" before he was eliminated by the voting audience this week. James didn't predict a winner for next week's "American Idol" finale on Fox but predicted a "crazy good show" when Crystal Bowersox of Toledo, Ohio, and Lee DeWyze of Mount Prospect, Ill., both 24, compete for the title and a record contract.

New Release Men Nike Free Run 2 Blue White Orange,Men Nike Free Run 4.0 V2 Light Charcoal Silver Chrome Yellow After the Ketubah (marriage contract) was signed, it was customary in biblical times for one of the witnesses or the rabbi to make a Kinyan with the bridegroom. The Hebrew word Kinyan (purchase, or acquisition) demonstrates it is a legal transaction. If a widowed woman and her late husband never had any children, and she wishes to remarry, she must undergo the ceremony of chalitzah as described in Deuteronomy 25:9. This ceremony consists of the removal of a specially made shoe from the foot of her late husband's brother. The symbolic meaning of this, as is the case in the book of Ruth, is to release any claim that the brother may have to the dead husband's inheritance. In Ruth 4:7 (NKJV), it says, "Now this was the custom in former times in Israel concerning redeeming and exchanging, to confirm anything: one man took off his sandal and gave it to the other, and this was a confirmation in Israel." In such cases, the widow may not remarry until the "removing the shoe" ceremony has been completed. Other objects such as a handkerchief or an article of clothing may be used. When a groom takes upon himself the obligation of the Ketubah through a Kinyan, a shoe, handkerchief, or another article of clothing is given to the groom, and it is accepted as barter for his obligation, thus he commits himself. Witnesses who sign the Ketubah must be eyewitnesses to this transaction of Kinyan before signing it. As the bride of the Messiah, we too, must give a Kinyan for our Bridegroom's obligation. Just as the sandal was symbolic of surrendering all rights to the property, which included Ruth's hand in marriage, for Boaz, so too, we must surrender all of our rights to the Messiah in exchange for His obligation. Take a moment now and think about how much this obligation has cost the Savior. Have you let go of all you have and own to your Kinsmen Redeemer?
