'Extreme Makeover' Home in Foreclosure - The Home Front (usnews.com) I remember seeing this episode, actually. Not just the TV show's crew, but a massive amount of volunteers, including the city's mayor, helped build the home for this family in 6 days, after they demolished their old home and faulty septic system. I can't believe these idiots had the audacity to take something like this gift given to them for free, and mortgage all that money against it. Editec, this is just one shining example of fiscal stupidity in this country. $450,000???? Are you fucking kidding me?? Fucking MORONS. Hey, let's bail them out for the SECOND time, what do you think? I volunteer my tax dollars. Anyone else with me?
