Stupid nonsense. If you don't own a home you just can not afford to be unemployed because you get evicted after being just 1 day late with rent. If you own a home you can live of your HELOC for a while until you get another high paying job. The renter is forced to take the next minimum wage job that comes along his way. I rather have a house and take my time looking for a job where I live AND want to live instead of moving to where I don't want to live just to get a stinkin job.
