    Habitat for Whomever

    Habitat for Whomever

    How do you say “suckaaaaa” in Spanish?

    My wife saw this on Facebook, regarding someone working on a Habitat for Humanity project in Central America.

    I just had to grab the screen shot.

    Even before the real estate meltdown, Habitat homeowners had a horrendous default rate despite discount loans and gratis down payments and the fact their cost is only for materials and actual finishing, most of the labor and all the profit margin are discounted.

    It’s basically a scam to entice good-hearted people to give time and money so someone else gets a house without working for it. The CRA and the push for subprime mortgage lending is the same thing writ large.

    Typical Filipino neighborhood. A mix of concrete buildings and wooden shacks. Yeah, this is _my_ neighborhood 😛

    Didn’t our former worst president Jimmy Carter have something to do with Habitat for Humanity?

      He participated in some photo ops to bolster his image of the kindly, grandfather do-gooder. It’s an open secret if you live any time in the Atlanta area that he’s really a vile, vindictive, nasty human being. I count him as the really the first card-carrying liberal president to have his real persona scrubbed and protected by the media. That’s another reason it’s been so easy for The One…Jimmah paved the way.

    While I’m sure many/most Habitat volunteers are sincerely motivated, it is also true that volunteering for iconic organizations is often done simply to bolster one’s liberal resume, that you’ll need it on your record later in life – Habitat For Humanity, Peace Corps(e), etc. It’s a pan-societal practice, not limited to liberals. A young conservative with an eye towards a future in politics might enlist in the military, for example, motivated only by a desire to check that box on the growing resume. I do believe liberals have the corner on the market, though.
