They were all adjustable rate mortgages.

    After that audit I noted similar situations over and over again in all of the states I was assigned to. But I didnít realize just how big of a problem it really was.

    Gd this movie is hitting home and the acting is incredible to.

    In layman's terms, when I was seeing 1 BR houses with nothing lawns in meh neighborhoods going for $250+K...something is wrong there. And there was.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Yes! That was one of the other issues we were flagging. Over inflated home values. Or, so we thought based on prior years experience...Ugh...

    I think part of the reason is that the "bad guy" says he's a bad guy, he just profited off the rules, so in essence he's not a BAD bad guy, the government is. It's twisted.

    Exactly. I can't watch it again or I will start randomly murdering finance people and, while a valuable public service, that is inconvenient.

    What can I say? I'm a shirker.

    Last night was Mean Streets. That is the most Scorsesed a movie could ever be! LOVED IT!

    Shiat. You could just spend the whole week on 1995 alone. Pulp Fiction, Shawshank, Quiz Show, and 4 Weddings were the runners up that year.

    Finished reading Shoeless Joe, aka the Field of Dreams book.

    Movie did it better. Though I didnít realize it differed so much. Not like it had any major plot changes or anything, but about half the characters in the book are gone, some scenes in the book are merged in the movies, and probably the biggest thing that jumped out to me is that the first third or so of the movie is wrapped up in about the first 20 pages of the book.

    I don't even know where you'd start with that category. You're going to need a longer quarantine.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Well we have 3 people selecting (with 3 different styles) so it should be a nice variety. Tonight we are watch Lenny with Dustin Hoffman because Lenny Bruce rules!
