I was really surprised last summer when my local boat dealer owner told me that people were taking out Home Equity Loans to buy boats!! Really, putting your home at risk for a freakin boat. We are dealing with a culture of people today that are off the charts. Most probably voted for Obama.
I'm in sales in La, I could count the sales to Obama voters on one hand. Bad money decisions are made by left and right voters.
