Too many people in one house: Why is Carpentersville doing nothing about 18 to 20 Hispanic immigrants living together in one house? That’s a health issue. Something has to be done about it. I live in that area. I see our country 10 years from now having a major problem, worse than it is now.
Bummed about banks: I wish someone would write an article on why all the little people are losing their homes and bank accounts while the banks that caused all of this are getting away with it. Nothing’s being done to break up these banks. What’s going to happen to all of us? Why don’t we get on these banks and make them suffer, too?
Empty houses: With all of the foreclosures in every community and homes standing empty, I don’t understand why banks don’t come to some kind of financial agreement with property owners. Lower the payments over more years and credit people for keeping property in a respectable condition. Banks must be losing money hand over fist with all of these empty houses not taking in a penny. Isn’t some money better than no money? Isn’t it better to keep people in homes instead of out on the street doing crimes? It’s the same problem of robbing Peter to pay Paul. All of these unkempt houses make places where you don’t want to live.
