ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — For Alex Pemberton and Susan Reboyras, foreclosure is becoming a way of life — something they did not want but are in no hurry to get out of.

Foreclosure has allowed them to stabilize the family business. Go to Outback occasionally for a steak. Take their gas-guzzling airboat out for the weekend. Visit the Hard Rock Casino.

*** end quote ***

Deadbeats are deadbeats.

As the taxpayer, why am I financing them?

Just cause you bought high and it’s low now, how is that society’s problem?

Sorry, it’s a private matter. Unless you are claiming fraud, in which case, the gooferment should investigate.

Otherwise, tough love!

I’d like to go to Outback, but I’m “poor”. I have to pay my taxes so they can be subsidized! Argh!

Ditto the boat and the Hard Rock.
