thankyou for the reply. I couldn’t begin to describe my own actions better than this thread I wrote to Samlinder :-
The pace of this collapse is so far reaching, I find the signs in the strangest of places only because I’ve learned how to figure out those signs by studying this site and as many of the links I can from it. Like you, I feel well out of my league but try my best to figure out what my strengths are in helping people. I started out by simply directing people to Chris Martensons Crash Course videos and have moved on as best I can to being a listening ear and a support with all of the questions raised from it that need decisive and quick response. I’ve gone onto supporting some financially and even gave the second car I could have sold, to a friend who was in dire straights directly before I emigrated. They still hadn’t grasped how big the financial crisis was going to become, even after I’d sat them through the Crash Course, but then that was in late September last year and the less media savvy were going to get it around the clock and daily by mid October.
For me, money has never been my drive. I think my epitaph will be, ‘he wished to be a success in all in life but money’. I’ve always asked myself the serious question, ‘How much is enough?’, and gone on from there. To be living now with the basic essentials has been easier for me than most but, the journey in getting to this point has been as equally hard in its own way, as others.
I think we’re all surprising ourselves in many and varied ways…
Well just got off the phone with Wells Fargo.
They don’t consider net income only gross.
They don’t consider living expenses only debts.
End result, house forecloses. Take care all……………….
I’m utterly devastated for you and your friend. I hope in some way that talking and involving yourself with the people of this forum has helped you in some way to come to terms with this criminal financial madness. I’ll be damned if I’ll bore you with the usual platitudes given by others when in a personal crisis but, to see an empty reply to your last post after 3 days has to mean that everyone was busy running a farm like I am? Please understand that my late reply is no less an assertion of understanding where your mindset must be at this time.
Here’s the help your banks are giving?
One more to help stop foreclosure.
I couldn’t help when I saw this little girls sign. How fortunate the rest of us are.
My heart always breaks for the innocent little ones who don’t understand why their world has turned upside down.
