People are not stupid. In that town where a fool and their money is soon parted its not a good thing to loose money when you are barely getting by.

When I saw that it was on the Al Gore channel I figured I would wait to watch it when I have some time to waste.

Las Vegas deserves a meltdown. Those idiots demolished so many buildings that made money, only to go into debt and lose money. It is a shame that the average person is a victim of those greedy investors. Hopefully one day they get what they deserve.

Thats an outstanding video. It really shows how hard this recession is hitting people. Nevada is on the verge of a meltdown! What other states are even remotely close to Nevada? I wouldn't mind seeing more of these videos.

We have to learn to evolve now. People HAVE GOT to stop buying more homes then they can afford. We need to learn how to downsize and live much simpler lives. Otherwise, there is going to be major suffering and crime.

The host is really annoying. Gee, the people have 20 minutes to get their crap and she is trying to chat with them? I would've yelled at her.

I agree 100%. I thought the same thing. It wasn't even 20 minutes... it was more like 10 minutes. I would have told that lady to get the hell out of there. This is how it went..

Host: Where are you going to go?
Renter: I don't know.
Host: Do you have any friends or family in the area?
Renter: No.
Host:Well where are you going to go?
Renter: (Looked like he snapped in his head) Looks her in the eyes and says...I said I don't know.

He probably would have punched her in the nose if the cops weren't there.
