Now, don’t get us wrong. Our hearts go out to those who are losing their homes to unemployment, subprime mortgages and the like. But when homeowners who can actually afford their mortgages decide to either buy a cheaper house and then walk away from their present one or—gasp!—just walk away, we have to cry a mad-as-hell foul. Since when did the ravages of a recession absolve you of personal responsibility? Yeah, we’re all hurting, but when we don’t all share the load, we go down that much faster. Seriously, grow a pair, people.
