It seems like every time somebody asks me one of those really volatile questions like, “So, what do you do for a living?” I spend the next thirty minutes on a soapbox.
The end of last week it was the effect of a new IRS regulation on people who manage to not file for bankruptcy. Earlier in the week it was universal default clauses and credit card companies’ testimony before Congress. In the not too distant past it has been attorneys who file collection cases without having ever seen a copy of the note. People who use debit cards without a clue what their liability is if something goes wrong. The securitization of consumer debt (primarily mortgages) and resale of that debt. You name it, and I can preach about it. So, maybe I ought to blog about it.
