screwed? 

I am so angry that these banks are giving out these obscene bonuses again after we, the taxpayers, bailed them out!

Where in the heck is my bonus?

I'm over it. At least the prez said something to them, and one of the banks will be helping us out. Hopefully the rest will follow suit.

I think they will give you a bonus hand ushering you out the door if you ask for a loan most times now.

You can say that again....We had a bank give us a "Courtesy call" to see if we wanted to refinance and I told them even after the bail out, no one will help us, because my husband has been laid off for a yr now! You should have heard the change in her voice as she apologized and dismissed her call! LOL!

I have actually had mail sent to me for credit cards...and I am sure it's obvious to them that I am BEHIND on my mortgage and also NOT PAYING a couple of my cards...

WTF is up with that?

yep! for instance, this new homebuyers tax credit. hubby and i qualify. we are in good standing with our mortgage. struggling, but not to the point where things aren't being paid. maybe late here and there. we have been lucky. we are looking to move, so we went to apply for a loan. 3 different banks wouldn't even consider it because our credit score was less than 725. umm, ok. here we are! ready to help do our part! ready to not only better ourselves, but in doing so will help better the economy! oh wait, we can't because the banks are too effing scared.

Yes, everytime I read the news. Everything is all about the almighty dollar. Not the good of the country or its people, just money and power(to get more money).

I did think it was cheeky that the bastards were standing at the door of the government saying 'thanks for bailing us out, but here's your money back, we don't want it now that we CAN pay you back and don't want to be responsible.' And the government let them.
