Saw that. While a very good clip in general, the PC part of me sprung up in alert at the image of sub-prime home-owners. Overweight, drinking, more children. None of the features they used for the sub-prime family directly reflect those people's inability to pay their mortgages, we're to assume that through stereotyped associations.

Why not simply use a picture of people with empty pockets, to keep it mild? Or people being chased by debt (like the creditors' hands used later on)? Or maybe some greedy people trying to flip a house, why no mention of them? Those are all direct references to, you know, not being able to pay.

Nice clip and nice post too. Whatever we are seeing here in this clip is very true. Even after having a goodcredit score we are falling short for money. I don't know when the days will come back where we don't have to be financially stressed....:)

Financial stress is always going to be there even if you have a good credit score but the amount of effect will be somewhat less. But I really hope to come out of this credit crisis which we are facing right now.
