    Sebastopol pair vents mortgage woes publicly

    John Burgess/The Press Democrat Robert and Kim Wardwell-Hynes put up a sign in front of their Sebastopol home blaming GMAC for the high rates on the two loans taken out on the house. Their children are Fiona, 9, and Zack, 6.

    Most people who lose their homes to a short sale or foreclosure do what they can to conceal that fact, such is their embarrassment.


    Not so for one Sebastopol couple, whose highly public protest over their plight reveals a rage that normally remains hidden.

    Whether Robert Hynes and his wife, Kim Wardwell-Hynes, are entitled to those feelings is debateable, given their own roles in landing where they are today.

    From their perspective, blame for their situation rests with the banks and mortgage lenders that they feel snookered hardworking people like them into getting subprime loans, which have led thousands to walk away from their homes.


    Rest at link.......


    It amazes me the amount of people that took loans, promising to pay, then bitch because the bank demands they pay the loan

    Many of these people who took subprime mortgages and other credit knew they couldn't afford it.

    Now the banks handing out the cash in the first place are to blame for the collapse of various world economies but the individuals who took the loans they can't pay are responsible for their own circumstances.

    Yeah, I could have taken a mortgage for a $250,000 4 bedroom house with a pool as well. However I'd be living in a Sears cardboard box by now.
