After years of loose lending and subprime mortgages, that's what happens. Those ARM's are kicking in and people can't manage the new mortgage payments. Going to get worse, and it will affect all of us one way or another.

Too Bad......maybe people will learn their lesson in being egotistical. "Look at me....I'm successful!" Bit off more than you could chew...huh? I don't care who you are...you don't impress me with your toys and big houses and I'm glad you lose them on account you didn't pay attention in school.....math in particular.

The economy shows no signs of getting better, unemployment is the worst in 20 years.

I finally got to buy a home, there's a silver lining to this dark cloud of foreclosures.

i think if people did not use credit cards and spend all they make, they would not be in all this financial mess.
I've been saving since 1991 for something, now I know what.
