  1. I was looking for somewhere to post an opinion about these type of loans.  Sadly no one seems to have started a campaign against them.  The government should ban them.  This is one thing government actually can do as opposed to the strange behaviour of asking “how high?” when the bankers tell them to jump.  I don’t know what the function of government is any more.  It certainly doesn’t seem to be to help and protect the great unwashed any more. It seems to help those who want to take huge bonuses and go play golf.
